July 6, 2022: Jack’s Casino & Sports (JACKS.NL) is offering players a free subscription to Gamban – a software package that blocks all websites offering online gambling, this is a very effective responsible gaming measure to protect vulnerable players. Once the software is installed players can’t access any online gaming site, legal or illegal.
Eric Olders, CEO and Chairman of the JVH group: “Responsible gaming and the protection of players are both extremely important at JVH. Therefore, we are proud that JACKS.NL is the first Dutch gambling provider offering Gamban software for free. We have been offering this software to our players since the launch of JACKS.NL. We strongly believe that gambling must always be an experience, based on hospitality, safety, variety and, most of all, fun. By offering this software for free – on top of all our other responsible gaming tools and processes – we can provide even greater protection to players.”
“We strive for safe and trusted environments for all our players. Simply excluding vulnerable players from our site alone is not enough. It could drive them to other gambling sites, including and especially illegal sites without proper responsible gaming measures. The essence of improving player protection lies in the exclusion of illegal sites. This software enables players to exclude themselves from all sites. The Gamban software blocks all gaming websites worldwide, preventing those players from any gambling online. Gamban is a smart and most effective software for blocking all gambling sites and applications.”
First Gamban partner in the Netherlands
“We’re pleased to be working with JOI gaming as our first operator partner in the Netherlands. Jack's Casino & Sports is demonstrating its strong commitment to its players, by offering fully paid for Gamban licenses to their customers. Gamban is most effective when used in addition to other tools and support, such as signing up to CRUKS (the Dutch self-exclusion register), and the use of low limits for young adults” – James Forman, Business Intelligence Officer at Gamban.
Since 2015, Gamban has gone from strength to strength, setting the standard in gambling blocking software. First-hand experience of problem gambling combined with the most talented minds in the field of gambling blocking software has resulted in the most effective cross-platform solution for creating friction and aiding willpower in the fight against gambling addiction. Used by tens of thousands of people worldwide, Gamban has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback.
“Gamban sees JACKS.NL as a key player that values responsible gaming. Even before obtaining its licence, JACKS.NL was actively looking for innovative techniques to provide additional protection for players”, says Forman.
In 2018, Gamban was awarded with a Software Rising Star Award at the EGR B2B Awards and in 2019, Gamban won RegTech Provider of the Year at The Gambling Compliance Global Regulatory Awards. Ensuring that industry adheres to effective self-exclusion guidelines and adopts practical player protection methodologies is a large part of what makes Gamban and gambling blocking software successful.
Gamban is not intended to be a standalone solution, and the team continue to work extensively to connect schemes, tools and initiatives, ensuring that recovery from problem gambling is both possible and achievable.
