First to admit that I used to have a problem with online slots. No problem with coupons, scratch cards, slingo etc. So I signed up for gamstop at the start of this year. Best thing that’s ever happened to me.
BUT, I’ve been using FI for 2 months and it’s been great depositing money and not watching it disappear in a heartbeat. I’ve built up a healthy portfolio and prior to tonight’s kick offs was £82 in the green. Was planning on withdrawing everything (£1140 so not a small amount) once I hit £100 and start again.
HOWEVER when I tried to sell players to change things up before kick off, I was informed that due to a self exclusion imposed by GAMSTOP my ability to trade has been suspended until the exclusion ends. This is 5 years away and I’ve already been trading comfortably and making money for 2 months.
Any other GAMSTOP users out there that have been screwed over and now don’t have the ability to buy or sell their portfolio without activating a football index self exclusion, and losing 2% commission fee plus a fee of 10% of their portfolio value for “charges”? 😡
