Jdigital underscored that its relationship with FEJAR would be totally transparent, with its partner publishing independent reports on the helpline progress and development.

“The first phone number to be launched in collaboration with the Spanish online gambling association. We are pleased to have signed this agreement with Jdigital and some of the main online gambling companies in the country, because it highlights the importance of joining efforts on the fight against problematic gambling, a task that has been Fejar’s main goal since its foundation in 1991,” Maxi Gutiérrez, president of FEJAR, said.
