Aspinall’s Club Ltd v Al-Zayat [2007] EWCA Civ 1001

A gambling debt which was recoverable at the time it was incurred could later become irrecoverable by the subsequent provision by the gaming club of unlawful credit to the member, which rendered the member’s liabilities on both the dishonoured cheque and the underlying loan illegal and unenforceable under s 16 of the Gaming Act 1968.”
