Gambling doesn’t look like it used to. It’s affecting millions of children around the world.

With games increasingly appealing to younger audiences, it’s more important than ever for families to be aware of the risks of online gambling.

  

There is a simple way to help you take control and get your life or your business back on track by downloading the gamban® app for your mobile or installing our software on your device – fast, simple, safe.

Is your child gambling?
  • Check your bank statements – a surprising number of children know their parents’ passwords and devices often allow access to payment which means your children could be spending significant amounts of money with your billing credentials.
  • Monitor the amount of money your child has access to – perhaps consider a prepaid payment method or set up notifications.
  • Ask to review their gaming accounts and review the assets and transactions.
  • If you feel it is appropriate, inform your children of the risks.
What should parents know?
  • None of the websites that facilitate gambling are affiliated with the games themselves.
  • Children use skins for their characters or weapons as ‘status symbols’ to show off to their friends other gamers.
  • Methods of online payment, such as PayPal, are meant for those 18 and over, but they allow anyone with a credit or debit card to set up an account.
  • YouTubers (streamers) upload videos of themselves gaming and  gambling with skins, enticing kids to join in.
