Cashback sites have been accused of encouraging gambling by rewarding customers for betting online.

Topcashback, Quidco and Ohmydosh all offer cashback for a range of services and purchases.

But Money Mail found they were promoting more than 60 gambling, bingo and betting sites between them.

Addictive: Topcashback, Quidco and Ohmydosh promoted over 60 gambling, bingo and betting sites between them

Topcashback boasted of paying out £30,000 a month to customers who signed up to a gambling site. It currently pays out £55 to new customers if they wager at least £10 with Bonus Kings.

Rival site Quidco pays new players at Coral Casino £40 as long as they wager at least £10.

Meanwhile, eight of Ohmydosh’s 23 “higher income” offerings are for gambling or bingo sites.

Shadow Gambling Minister Alex Davies-Jones said: “Websites luring consumers with supposedly lucrative cashback offers are an incentive to gamble more and are an increasingly worrying trend.

We are going through a cost of living crisis, with many people across the UK worried about their incomes and rising energy prices.

Sue Anderson, from debt charity StepChange, says: “Gambling businesses shouldn’t exploit people’s vulnerabilities, such as compulsion or addiction, but there are still many mechanisms by which people can be “hooked”, including incentives offered through cashback sites”.

A Topcashback spokesperson said it was reviewing its gaming category, adding: “We recognize that more can be done to encourage responsible gaming.”

A Quidco spokesperson said: “We expect consumers to gamble responsibly.”
