Responsible gamblingThe UK registered charity offers the only freely available blocking software on the market. It both allows users to restrict themselves from accessing remote gambling services entirely via a continuous block, or to manage when they can access gambling by scheduling when the restriction switches on/off, to offer protection during periods of vulnerability.
Expanding the BetBlocker service into more languages feeds its natural progression for the service and allows the company to offer its services to more vulnerable people. Non-English users will now have more options since the app is already accepted anywhere in the world in English.
Expanding into other languagesFounder and Trustee for the charity, Duncan Garvie said: “Expanding BetBlocker to other language markets has always been a clear objective for the service. The most significant barrier to taking this step is providing native language support, due to the staffing costs involved.
“L&L Europe have demonstrated their commitment to responsible gambling, providing translation services to allow Dutch users to access BetBlocker in the language they are most comfortable with. We hope that this will be the first of many such partnerships with the industry that will allow us to offer our service in a variety of languages.”
Jan Wienk, Marketing Manager and Head of Product Development for L&L Europe added: “How a simple question like: ‘Is there a gambling block application available in the Dutch language?’ results in such an amazing and well-executed project. Extremely proud to be collaborating with Betblocker and ‘Pas op met Gamen en Gokken’ founder Feite Hofman. An online casino operator has a duty of care, and this project completion shows we have. This truly shows we’re not only compliant within the field of responsible gambling, but we also take the extra step.”
