Unibet, part of Kindred Group, is working with the software company Gamban to become the first UK bookmaker to integrate blocking software into the self-exclusion process.
Kindred first partnered with Gamban back in April 2018 and the operator has now extended the relationship across its Unibet brand to help users self-exclude for a longer period.
The move will mean that players who opt to self-exclude on the Unibet will be able to block access to all gaming sites for a period between six months and five years. Kindred will be the first to offer Gamban’s blocking software for an exclusion period which mirrors the self-exclusion length on-site. This will be a new addition to the current one-year offer that Gamban currently provides.
The blocking service will be made available to customers free of charge.
“We are strong advocates for education around responsible gambling and ensuring all of our customers are able to make an informed choice,” said Neil Banbury, Kindred UK general manager.Follow us on
