We believe the majority of our customers are individuals struggling with gambling who seek a tool to help them take control of their addiction. We also believe that Gamban customers will be motivated to purchase our software due to a desire for support and resources in their recovery journey, as well as a need for accountability towards themselves, friends and family. We expect that our primary customers will be men and women between the ages of 25 and 45, who will most likely discover our software through online search and word-of-mouth referrals.
Since 2015, Gamban has gone from strength to strength, setting the standard in gambling blocking software.
