- France  -

Unibet has become the first operator in France to offer Gamban’s blocking software to its customers, after parent company Kindred Group signed a partnership with the safer gambling solutions provider. 

Kindred sponsored Gamban’s tranformation for French customers. The platform was previously unavailable in the French language – in order to boost the accessibility and reach of the software, which will enable its players to opt out of its platform. 

The solution will be rolled out from 10 November onwards, sitting alongside Kindred’s existing responsible gambling tools for the French market, with the Swedish company lauding Gamban as ‘one of the most effective tools’ for player self-control. 

“At Kindred, we want gambling to remain a fun source of entertainment,” said Mathieu Drida, General Manager France, Kindred Group.

“From now on, online gamblers are subject to a playing limit of €200 per week and per site,” the BGC informed operators.
