Gambless and Mindspa join forces to support gambling companies



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Problem gambling prevention and support platform “Gambless” announces a one-of-a-kind partnership to help operators promote mental health both for customers and employees.

The events of the past 18 months have tested everyone’s mental health. Living in such conditions has put many in a perpetual state of disruption, uncertainty and grief, and this has pushed employee mental health to the top of many companies’ list of concerns and priorities.

Employers are starting to understand that the impact on mental health is going to be long lasting. Mental health issues don’t go away after vaccination. They don’t go away after returning to the office, either. But there is a silver lining: while before the pandemic most employees considered talking about mental health at work as a sign of weakness, now this taboo is crumbling. The stigma around mental health is rapidly decreasing.

Issues related to anxiety and depression are among the most common conditions, and nowadays many employers are encouraging conversations on these topics in order to elevate their company’s culture.


Be it to prevent burnout, to increase productivity, or to improve overall health, companies have figured out that adding mental health benefits far outweighs the cost. And with the help of technology, such services are now more efficient, more easily accessible, and more inclusive than ever.




When it comes to gambling companies, however, the challenges of mental health increase considerably. Operators need to embrace a double responsibility, towards both their employees and their customers.

Many problem gamblers have been known to gamble as a way to cope with stress and other difficult emotions, and there is indication that more than 90% of problem gamblers have comorbidity with other mental disorders.


To meet the growing challenges of the gambling industry, Gambless has decided to join forces with Mindspa.


Thanks to this agreement, operators will be able to offer trusted mental health services to both employees and customers. Partnering with Gambless will enable gambling companies to safeguard the wellbeing of their most vulnerable players and, at the same time, they will get access to Mindspa resources for free, to the benefit of their employees.




Gambless is a mobile app that utilizes various evidence-based therapeutic techniques to help manage a gambling addiction, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Gestalt Therapy, targeting stages of changes via a stepwise approach. Therapeutic courses on Problem Gambling are divided into daily lessons which go gradually more in-dept in the topic and reflect the positive changes achieved by the users.

Gambless is the first app to tackle gambling addiction with a holistic mental health approach, trusted by gamblers from over 60 countries and currently ranking #1 for most ‘problem gambling’ related terms in Google Play and AppStore.

Mindspa is a mental health app which helps users cope with their emotions through psychoeducation and mood tracking. It features a diary where users can rate their mood, quality of self-care, and feelings of self-harm. Users are shown a breakdown of their entries over time. Other tools include exercises to help users manage their feelings, articles for psychoeducation, and an emergency chatbot guiding users to overcome difficult emotions. Therapeutic programs within the app cover more than 20 specific topics.

Mindspa is ORCHA certified and it’s available in 5 languages. It has recently been featured by Apple, which praised the quality of the app, and it’s trusted by nearly 400,000 users worldwide.

iGaming content provider BGaming has donated $5,000 to UNITED24, a charity raising money for medical aid and critical needs in Ukraine.

At this year’s ICE London, the fast-growing firm gave visitors the chance to receive merchandise featuring designs by renowned London artist Thumbs.

As an alternative they pledged to give $50 to the charity instead, which more than 70 generous partners opted to take up.

After boosting the final amount, BGaming has now pledged to continue its fundraising drive at IGB Live! Amsterdam, SBC Barcelona, and SiGMA Malta later this year as part of a commitment to ‘create positive change’.

UNITED24 was set up by the Ukrainian government to provide a secure platform for donors to raise funds for medical aid, defence and demining and rebuilding Ukraine.

Currently, they are running two medical aid projects which seek to raise money for more urgently needed ambulances in the war-torn country.

At the time of writing, it is estimated more than 8,000 civilians have been killed in the conflict, while more than 13,300 are believed to have been injured.

Catherine Puteiko, CMO of BGaming, said: “Small acts of kindness can have a big impact on the world, from caring for others to creating positive change. BGaming’s recent charity initiative at the ICE London exhibition was a shining example of this ethos.

“Our partners had the option to donate to a worthy cause or receive our branded merchandise, and we’re thrilled to share that this simple initiative raised 5000 dollars for victims of war in Ukraine. Let’s continue to think big and act small to make a positive impact on the lives of others!”

Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairman Sherwin Gatchalian presented the chairman’s report which cited that the risks of allowing the continuous operations of offshore gaming operations outweigh their benefits to the country. Citing R.A. No. 11590, he further states that offshore gaming should be shutdown, now that there is no third-party auditor monitoring their income.

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) would like to reiterate its firm commitment to uphold the integrity of the gaming industry in the Philippines, including offshore gaming.

After determination of Global ComRCI’s default in its obligations and commission of unlawful acts under R.A. No. 9184, a Notice of Decision to Terminate the Consultancy Contract was served to third-party auditor Global ComRCI on March 9, 2023, effective upon thirty (30) days from receipt thereof.

PAGCOR is now in the process of engaging a capable and reputable third-party auditor who can independently and accurately conduct verification of the offshore gaming licensees’ gross gaming revenues.

Further, PAGCOR reassures the public that to maintain the integrity of regulated gaming in the country, the state-run firm will not hesitate to impose appropriate sanctions or penalties to erring licensees or service providers. We will ensure that all revenues from regulated gaming will continue to support the government’s nation-building efforts and uplift the lives of Filipinos.

OnAir Entertainment™: Flexibility of more providers vs. Exclusivity with a single provider



Reading Time: 2 minutes


OnAir Entertainment™️, the go-to live casino games provider, has added their voice to the increasing industry concern regarding the negative impact of exclusivity deals within the live casino space.

There has been a growing discussion around the impact of exclusivity deals on operators and platforms, with OnAir Entertainment™ believing that one supplier setups create several limitations for operators. Limitations arising from exclusivity push players to find additional options from more diversified live casino offerings. It’s known that players prefer websites with more content choice, allowing them to search for the games they want to play – player freedom is vital to maximizing cross-sell and therefore increasing platform revenue.

Do exclusivity agreements truly fulfil the promises and needs of the industry? Markets need to change rapidly, adapting to new and more restrictions on operators, which requires sufficient flexibility and creativity. Can an agreement set in stone, determined by a single supplier and based on a rigid commercial model, be flexible to a regulatory landscape that is constantly shifting and help operators to be competitive?

Given the global nature of the biggest operators, multi-supplier deals also mean that they can test out different games across markets and not be forced to stick with one product globally. Less exclusive deals allow operators to be much more agile when operating internationally, as localization needs must not be ignored. A key part of OnAir Entertainment’s™ product offering is the ability to input customizable elements within their digitally branded and localised environments so that operators can reinforce and scale their brand together with OnAir Entertainment’s™ tech. While also using reasonable commercial terms so our operators can test audience response in branded environments with low risk before committing to more sizeable projects.

There is no doubt that the variety of live casino suppliers continues to grow, causing increased industry competition and that this competition pushes continued innovation within the iGaming industry.  It is this belief in constant innovation that is at the core of all OnAir Entertainment’s™ operations. By continuously developing improvements in UI design, 3D animations, allowing for localization and the incorporation of brandable elements – OnAir Entertainment™ hopes to increase user engagement and player experience.

Seval Alev Kaya, Director of Business Development at OnAir Entertainment™, said “Innovation is at the heart of our operations, and our main priority is to provide maximum flexibility for our clients. Operator differentiation is directly linked to content diversity and harmony. We see that many operators are trying to widen their audience by adding more casino vendors, especially in live casino space in order to reduce the need for a single vendor that comes with unfavourable terms, high costs, and limitations. We are the alternative solution with a service-minded approach, invested in our client’s growth.”
