In collaboration with L&L Europe BetBlocker have launched a version of the app for the Fire OS platform
BetBlocker has announced that in collaboration with L&L Europe we have now launched a version of the app for the Fire OS platform, meaning that it can now support even more vulnerable players in the online gaming sector.
This new release makes BetBlocker the first, and only, gambling blocking software to be available on the Fire OS platform.
For those yet unfamiliar with BetBlocker, it functions as a responsible gambling tool empowering those suffering from a gambling compulsion to re-assert control of their habits by enabling them to restrict their internet capable devices from accessing in excess of 6400 online gambling operator websites. Those wishing to avail themselves of the services BetBlocker can provide may download it, entirely free of charge, and install it on as many devices as they possess. There is no cap on the number of times an individual may download or install BetBlocker and it will always remain cost free. This recent addition means the reach of BetBlocker now extends across: Android, Apple, Windows, Linux, iOS and now includes Amazon’s Fire phones and tablets.
When asked about this recent development, Duncan Garvie, the Manager of ThePOGG.com – the group which has funded and developed the BetBlocker - had this to say: “The internet age has brought with it a host of new challenges for society, not least for those suffering from gambling addiction. Everyone now effectively carries a casino, bingo hall, poker room and betting shop in their pockets at all time. The way that people engage with the internet is constantly changing and BetBlocker has to keep evolving to meet the needs of our users. The addition of the Fire OS platform is a fantastic improvement to the BetBlocker service, extending coverage to one of the fastest growing hand held device markets in the world right now.”
L&L Europe CEO Christopher Dalli adds: “At L&L Europe we understand that responsible gambling is the top priority for ourselves and for our customers. While there are a number of projects that are using responsible gaming as yet another moneymaking exercise, ThePOGG have time and time again shown that this is an endeavour that is close to their heart and it is our privilege to be able to collaborate on this project with them. Just like ThePOGG we believe in a safe and responsible online gaming environment and in order to achieve that we believe it is our duty to help develop and facilitate access to fantastic tools like BetBlocker that could prove invaluable for vulnerable players.”
When asked about L&L Europe’s involvement in this project Mr. Garvie had this to say: “L&L Europe have long been a close partner of ThePOGG.com and they’ve been closely following the development of the BetBlocker app long before many people were aware of its existence. Their decision to provide funding to allow us to extend the BetBlocker app to the Fire OS operating system will make a big difference to a lot of people and shows a genuine commitment to Responsible Gambling.”
