The responsible gambling application BetBlocker have today announced that their service is now available in the Dutch language.
As was announced in May this year, working in partnership with L&L Europe who own and operate All British Casino, BetBlocker have expanded their service to offer their responsible gambling app entirely in Dutch. Alongside this, BetBlocker will now be able to offer Dutch language technical support.
BetBlocker is a UK registered charity that 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.
Expanding the BetBlocker service into other language markets is a natural progression for the service. BetBlocker is already available to any user anywhere in the world in its English language form. The restriction itself is equally viable for users from any country. However, offering native language technical support ensures that the maximum number of users within specific language markets can engage fully with the service.
Duncan Garvie, founder and Trustee for the charity, had this to say: “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: “How a simple question like: “Is there a gambling block application available in the Dutch language?” results in such an amazing and well executed project!”
“Extremely proud to be collaborating with Betblocker & “Pas op met Gamen en Gokken” founder Feite Hofman. 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.”
