Ahead of the launch of regulated online gaming in the Netherlands next month, responsible gambling charity BetBlocker has enhanced its Dutch language-facing services. After Betblocker introduced its app in the Netherlands it now also provides Dutch language technical support.
BetBlocker offers the only freely available blocking software on the market. It both allows users to restrict themselves from accessing remote gambling services entirely via a continuous block, or to manage when they can access gambling by scheduling when the restriction switches on/off, to offer protection during periods of vulnerability.
Duncan Garvie, founder and Trustee for the charity, said:
“Expanding BetBlocker to other language markets has always been a clear objective for the service. The most significant barrier to taking this step is providing native language support, due to the staffing costs involved.
The partnership with L&L Europe is a symbiotic relationship that both allows BetBlocker to focus the funding we receive on improving and expanding the protections that our app offers while L&L Europe demonstrate their commitment to responsible gambling, providing translation services to allow Dutch users to access BetBlocker in the language they are most comfortable with.
We hope that this will be the first of many such partnerships with the industry that will allow us to offer our service in a variety of languages.”
Jan Wienk, Marketing Manager and Head of Product Development for L&L Europe added:
“An online casino operator has a duty of care, and this project completion shows we have. This truly shows we’re not only compliant within the field of responsible gambling, but we also take the extra step.”
