Since 2015, Gamban has gone from strength to strength, setting the standard in gambling blocking software. Gamban is the smartest and most effective software for blocking gambling sites and applications. First-hand experience of problem gambling, combined with the most talented minds in the field of self-exclusion software have resulted in the most effective cross-platform solution for creating friction and aiding willpower in the fight against gambling addiction.
We're extremely excited to announce a partnership between Lloyds Banking Group and Gamban, enabling Lloyds, Bank of Scotland and Halifax customers access to Gamban. This is in addition to the Lloyds Banking Group Gambling Transaction Freezes which customers can activate from within the mobile banking app, providing an additional layer of protection from potential gambling harm.
“We know that gambling related harm can have serious and long term impacts on our customers and we are committed to making sure they can easily access a wide range of support. In addition to our card controls that allow the freezing of gambling transactions we are delighted to have developed a pilot with Gamban offering our customers three months free access to their software, providing another level of protection” Elyn Corfield, Managing Director, Consumer Finance, Lloyds Banking Group
Gambling addiction is a complex problem and offering vulnerable customers a multi-layered form of protection is the best approach to help people control gambling activity. By blocking transactions and access to online gambling, people can more effectively tackle their relationship with gambling.
Lloyds Banking Group has been working closely with experts in the field of gambling support to ensure that customers have easy access to a wide range of help and support options.
"It’s very positive to see forward-thinking banking institutions such as Lloyds Banking Group rise to the challenge of protecting vulnerable customers from gambling addiction through barriers such as spend control and collaboration with market-leading gambling-blocking technology, Gamban." - Jack Symons, Founder, Gamban
Initial integration of Gamban within Lloyds Banking Group banking offering was completed towards the end of January 2020 and a significant number of people have already activated the blocking protection, protecting iOS, Android, Windows and MacOS devices from thousands of gambling sites and applications.
