    I know it's illegal but im gonna be 18 in 2 months its not like im suddenly going to be a completely different person then.

    I want to sign up to bet365 but was wondering if i use someones id that is over 18 and sign up in their name (ill ask them/know them) but use my card will that work cos my card will be in a different name to the account name and not sure if they will know but my bank obviously knows im not 18.

    Just tell me if its possible to do this im not some wannabe gambling addict who thinks its an easy cash grab i just wanna make small bets to make games more exciting my friends do it and its just fun if you bet like £10 and get lucky and win £25 or something also i dont have a credit card so its not like it can get out of hand and i end up in montains of debt.

    Why can you not be bothered to wait for a measly 2 months so that you don't have to break the law? You've waited 17 years and 10 months; another 2 months won't kill you. It's likely betting sites cross-reference the people who sign up with the bank or credit details they provide as an anti-fraud measure; someone 18 or over could easily steal or find someone else's debit or credit card and try to use it on betting sites.

    Wait 2 months and save the hassle. I don't understand why you're so desperate to do it.

    If you're already so desperate to gamble that 2 months seems like a long time, steer well clear. Addict in the making.

    You need a payment method under the name of the account holder.

    You're also going be stuffed when they ask for documentation upon attempted withdrawal

    Gambling is a mugs game

    The house always has the advantage

    I honestly cannot see how so many people get sucked into gambling and become addicts

    IQ deficiency?

    That seems to be case from the state of the writing in the title and the post.

    CS skin gambling has no age restriction.

    I used to gamble expensive skins then cash my winnings out into my pay-pal. It is a super shady area, but it will always be available because it is technically not currency.

    Do I recommend it? Nah, gambling in general is a bad habit.

    Ok i get it u guys think its bad and i wont bother cos it wont work cos my card would be different to account name. Also i dont hav iq deficiency this isnt a test my grammer was legible enough and just cos i wanna gamble doesnt mean im gonna be an addict it makes football games exciting. Its not like a casino where u role a dice and try get lucky thats proper gambing.
    Also if i did try what would be the punishment if i was caught would i just lose the money i put in, get banned or worse like a criminal record

    Online gambling is proper gambling; thousands of people get sucked in and addicted to it every year and they lose thousands upon thousands of pounds each. You would be prosecuted for fraud by false representation, which is a very serious offence: https://www.cps.gov.uk/legal-guidance/fraud-act-2006

    Just hearing today how they're going to crack down on gambling app adverts... apparently the bookies are using neuroscience to create adverts that cynically target people who are predisposed to compulsive gambling.

    It's not really that much fun IRL... the guys at work who have the in game gambling app on their phone are compulsively pecking away at them like rats in a Skinner box (when they should be getting on with their jobs btw - They're probably going to get fired eventually and then they'll feel the pinch)
