BetBlocker Marks Safer Gambling Week with New Blocking Feature
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

BetBlocker, the UK charity behind the popular responsible gambling software by the same name, has announced a brand-new feature just in time for Safer Gambling Week 2020, which runs from 19-25 November. The feature makes it easier for people to block online gambling activities via a calendaring function.

The new feature was developed to address feedback from both players and the industry that suggested that providing greater flexibility to users to control when the restriction switches on or off would make the service significantly more useful to a large number of people. The feature was developed with the understanding that, while some individuals are looking to block themselves from gambling altogether, others simply want help to manage their gambling in a responsible fashion by limiting their access at times that they feel they may be vulnerable.

Blocking Via Calendaring

Until now, the BetBlocker software has relied exclusively on blocking for a fixed length of time. Software users would block themselves from gambling for whatever period of time they felt comfortable with. From the start of the block until its conclusion, the user was prevented from accessing online gambling activities.

The new calendaring feature allows users to be more precise in blocking out desired times. By applying blocks to a calendar, they can designate specific days they know they should not be gambling, without simultaneously blocking all access to gambling activities.

For example, a person who knows his gambling habits tend to get out of control on the weekends can use the new feature to just block out Friday through to Sunday. The rest of the week remains open. Another person might decide to block out the first few days following their regular payday.

“Responsible gambling is about more than the binary option of do or don’t,” BetBlocker Trustee Duncan Garvie said. “It’s about helping ensure that people who enjoy gambling can access this activity in a safe and controlled manner.”

Garvie went on to explain that “BetBlocker’s new calendaring feature is a leap forward for blocking softwares, extending the service from a simple on/off to a point where users can now tailor restrictions that suit their specific needs.”

BetBlocker officials say the new feature has just been rolled out for Android. It will be implemented in the Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, and Fire OS apps in the very near future.  For more information see https://thepogg.com/bet-blocker-launch-calendaring-feature/ or you can contact Managing Trustee Duncan Garvie at [email protected]

Fortuna Zakłady Bukmacherskie has won the Best Bookmaker title at 2020 edition of Legalni Bukmacherzy’s Polish Bookmakers Awards.

The Polish arm of Czech gambling group Fortuna Entertainment Group took home the Best Offer and Responsible Bookmaker titles too and claimed a joint Best Marketing prize with forBET.

Also, Fortuna employee Igor Kośliński was honoured with the Best Affiliate Manager Award as the bookmaker swept five awards out of eight different categories.

A total of 12 categories were included at this year’s Awards, with the nominees and winners decided by a group of top experts within the Polish betting and gaming industry. Meanwhile, the winner of the Customers Choice Award was voted by the players as legalnibukmacherzy.pl.

Adam Bieliński, CEO of iGamingNuts – the company behind Legalni Bukmacherzy, said: “The previous year was very specific. All of the assumptions concerning acquisition and marketing strategies had to be changed due to the cancelation of major sports events and suspension of games in top leagues.

“The whole industry approached the subject in a creative way – the bookmakers extended their offers, introduced new marketing activities, and most importantly, they did not abstain from improving their products.”
