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 has resulted in the most effective cross-platform solution for creating friction and aiding willpower in the fight against gambling addiction.

Used by thousands of people worldwide, Gamban has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, with some users informing the team that it has literally saved lives.

Taking the first step continues to be the hardest challenge and much of our time goes into making Gamban as simple and straightforward to install as possible.

In 2018 GambleAware commissioned independent research to evaluate the effectiveness of blocking software and to compare existing products. Gamban emerged the most effective and, as a result, Gamban has been provided free of charge through all Gamcare support networks in the UK.

In 2018, Gamban was awarded Software Rising Star Award at the EGR B2B Awards and in 2019, Gamban won RegTech Provider of the Year at The GamblingCompliance 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 self-exclusion 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.

Or go to the bookies, or pop into a pub,!or gamble game skins like the kids do... or another million ways to line someone else’s pocket...
Might take a punt on this 😁
Paradroid10/03/2020 09:59

No.


Thing is, it looks a lot like it is; it’s not a bad thing and they provide a service the other vpn providers don’t. It was a query on the technology not the benefit of the service

It was when I used it in 2017. Most amusing when the vpn doesn’t work allowing you access to any site you like.

Unfortunately if you know someone that is addicted they will lie and find ways to gamble and borrow money. It's a vicious cycle and can really kill relationships

Well in that case, yes it it VPN technology with added content blocking (hence the added cost over a standard VPN service of course)
Isn't sponsorship by definition a means of promotion? Or am I missing something?

Perhaps they are trying to peddle themselves as the "fair" gambling company (hint: there isn't such a thing) to gain more customers?

Even the promotions sounds similar - guess which one is which?

"Create a ### Account - You've been granted free ### worth £24.99"

"NEW CUSTOMERS ONLY - £20 IN FREE ### WHEN YOU ####"
Wish there was a pawnban app
Or use GamStop.co.uk for free??

I wondered this too, couldn't you just uninstall it anyway if you wanted to gamble? Don't get how this helps really but if it does fair enough and good luck to folk using it
Bet you I could get passed there blocks
If only they had something for TV like this. Fed up of not being able to watch a single sporting event without hearing about odds or gambling sponsors.
If you're that addicted you'll just pick up a cheap smartphone on Facebook and use that instead
Or just learn self control. Like smokers or alcoholics etc have to.
Great idea. I've known of a number of people who have had their lives (and the family's lives) destroyed by gambling. I encourage anybody who struggles to seek to become the person they deserve to be; it always starts with honesty; but no matter where you are, there is always hope. There is so much more to enjoy in life.

I am sure that apps like this will not be a panacea, and sure, you can always find a way around anything. But if you want to quit, then having something that puts a layer in your way, that makes it a little more difficult, may make stopping just that little bit easier. Another free option may be OpenDNS.

Voted hot, BTW.

Plenty of people struggle to quit smoking and alcohol too
SimplyBest10/03/2020 09:40

Now that is a serious gamble
I will probably go for the paid version, just in case they will do a 2 year promotion in a couple of months.
Like paying for medication when it's the medication that got you addicted. Damn right it should be free... Ongoing.
Does it block HUKD? I need to stop spending
Voted hot..
No it's not the full solution but compulsive gamblers need all the tools they can get, yes they can get round it with a another device but it COULD be that gives them enough time to control the compulsion to gamble and it's and insidious disease/affliction, enough time to gather their thoughts as it's often a knee jerk reaction to a emotion that impulse.
It's can wreck lives, livelihoods, relationship's it even kills people and unlike a heroin addict or even smoker or alcoholic the addiction is thrust into their face 24/7 if they put the TV on especially watching sports it's none stop bombardment.
Usually it's largely about breaking cycles and stuff like this can literally be a lifesaver, though other measures need to be in place like control of finances and attending GA meetings, if this saves just one person from the clutches of the leeches of the gambling industry it's probably the hottest deal of the year.
Good luck anyone using it

Actually, the past tense of pass is passed. You're correct with "their vs there".
I lost £10 in seconds on a P and O ferry to france in 1984 on red and black, 5 spins not one came in, Never gambled since , lucky lesson put me off. Heat as anything to help people.
