Gamban has continued its global growth through the announcement that its blocking software will become available in Spanish-speaking markets.
The expansion comes at a time when the Spanish Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC) has backed a safer gambling framework in the country.
It’s an expansion that builds on the firm’s already significant status in the UK market, where it works with the self-exclusion scheme GAMSTOP, and the specialist treatment provider GamCare, giving those experiencing harm from gambling access to their software for free through TalkBanStop.com.
As well as this, in the growing US market the company has linked with the likes of Fanduel, Unibet, DraftKings.
Jack Symons, CEO of Gamban, commented: “Spanish has the second largest population of native speakers in the world, so this is a really important step in ensuring blocking software is accessible to as many people harmed by gambling as possible.
“We’ve gone from strength to strength since we launched in 2015, setting the standard in gambling blocking software. Gamban’s used by thousands of people worldwide, and we’ve received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, with some users informing the team that it has literally saved their life.
“Taking the first step continues to be the hardest challenge and much of our time goes into making Gamban as simple and straightforward to install as possible.”
In 2018 GambleAware commissioned independent research to evaluate the effectiveness of blocking software and to compare existing products. Gamban emerged the most effective and, as a result, Gamban has been provided free of charge through all Gamcare support networks in the UK.
