Unibet offering Gamban self exclusion tool to its US players

In a press release this morning, Kindred Group announced that it has partnered with Gamban to offer Unibet’s US customers the ability to block online gambling sites across multiple devices. The software acts as a self-exclusion tool. The US partnering builds on a long-standing cooperation with Gamban since 2017 in which Kindred already offers Gamban’s software to their customers in Europa and Australia.

Maris Catania, Head of Responsible Gambling and Research at Kindred Group confirmed the latest development and stressed the company’s mission in providing a safe and responsible environment for its players:

“Unibet today offers customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana a safe and exciting gambling experience, and has applied for licenses in Illinois and Iowa. It has always been our ambition to bring our European know-how and expertise in Responsible Gambling to the US and our long-standing successful partnership with Gamban perfectly aligns with this ambition, as well as our journey towards zero revenue from harmful gambling by 2023. We are proud to be the very first operator in the US to offer inter-state protection to our customers and we strongly believe this will be an important step for the industry.”

Gamban Co-Founder, Jack Symons, added the following:

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with Unibet and offer our blocking software in the US – it’s a huge step forward for the industry. There’s no regulatory pressure for gambling operators to offer blocking software, so it’s fantastic Unibet is taking it upon itself to offer increased protection for its customers in the US and on a global scale. This highlights the evolution of the industry in recognising how products like ours can protect their players and the sustainability of their companies, as well as the wider industry.”
