Betting operator Kindred has revealed that its Unibet brand will be the first site in France to use the Gamban service, which allows players to opt out of gambling services.
The service will launch on November 10th and will operate alongside control services that Kindred already has in-place on the site, including deposit limits and play limits. The service was developed with Kindred's assistance, which helped bring French language support to the service. There are currently 17 licensed French sites that can be blocked using the service, with up to 60,000 sites that are unlicensed or licensed outside of the country also available.
Players who opt to use the service can see betting sites blocked on a variety of different devices, including computers, mobile phones, and tablets.
Regarding the launch of the service Kindred GM for France Mathiew Drida said, "At Kindred, we want gambling to remain a fun source of entertainment. As an online gambling operator, we take our responsibility towards our players very seriously and want to provide them with the most effective support tools on the market.
"This is what the partnership between Unibet and Gamban is all about, and we encourage all gambling operators to adopt this solution in order to make it more widely available in France."
Gamban VP of Partnerships Stephen Aupy also commented, adding: "We are very excited to be assisting Kindred on their journey to derive 0% revenue from harmful gambling. Kindred's voluntary commitment to offer Gamban for free in France means accessible blocking software can further protect those harmed by gambling from unlicensed operators outside the scope of regulation.
"Kindred's commitment to best practice has led to them choosing Gamban to partner with, which illustrates the reliability of our solution to protect players and work toward the sustainability of the industry."
