The BetBlocker project – a free app that helps players experiencing addiction issues limit their access to online gambling services - has been approved as a charitable entity within the UK. The BetBlocker project has been funded and developed by Alternative Dispute Mediation service ThePOGG.com Ltd in an effort to assist those players who used the service and exhibited signs of gambling addiction. BetBlocker users can control their access to over 6.7k gambling operator sites by activating the app and selecting the length of exclusion that they desire. Once activated, BetBlocker restricts the device and the exclusion cannot be lifted until the exclusion period has concluded. Working outside of licenses, the exclusion allows users to restrict even black market gambling services that would ordinarily ignore responsible gambling requests made by players.
