Gamban is an easy to use application which blocks online gambling on all of your installed devices, offering you a secure, reliable, and affordable option to stay away from gambling sites and apps, helping those with a gambling problem to fight the urge. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

How does Gamban work?

Once installed, the device will no longer be able to access gambling websites and apps. The software can be quickly installed on computers, mobile phones and tablets. We advise you to install Gamban on all the devices they use, so they are fully protected. It works on Mac OS, Windows, Android, and iOS.

Is Gamban Safe?

Other than blocking gambling websites and apps, Gamban doesn't intrude on your devices' use. All other websites and apps (not gambling related) work just as intended. However, if you do find something blocked that you believe shouldn't be, please don't hesitate to get in contact with our support team at info@gamban.com.

Does Gamban work in my country?

Yes. We block thousands of gambling sites and apps, from every corner of the world, including many illegal or unregulated ones. It is an ever-growing list!

I found a gambling website that Gamban does not block. What should I do?

If you find an online gambling site that Gamban is not blocking, please let us know (info@gamban.com) and we’ll take care of it immediately – we love that part!

Does Gamban block Skins?

Gamban blocks access to sites where skins are used as gambling currency. We will have some resources soon relating specifically to skins. Watch this space.

What is the difference between Gamban and GamStop?

Gamban blocks the device from accessing thousands of gambling websites and apps; GamStop is a self-exclusion scheme that keeps the person from accessing a number of UK based gambling websites (those that have chosen to join this scheme). Are you wondering why you need both? Because no one solution is perfect and we should all put as many obstacles as we can between ourselves and the gambling site. In fact, we should add a third source of friction: payment blocking. Here’s more on this topic.

Leaders in self-exclusion technology

Simply put: Gamban works. When you install Gamban, you are excluding yourself from thousands of online gambling platforms all over the world, not just a particular one or a small group. The software has been independently evaluated with very good results. A recent study conducted by independent charity GambleAware showed Gamban to be up to 99% effective in blocking users from gambling sites.

Gamban manages to provide superior self-exclusion at a fraction of the cost of competitors. When you look at the tool’s results and capabilities, there’s simply no comparison. Click here to start your journey towards recovery today.
