The self-exclusion software provider has entered a partnership with Norway’s Norsk Tipping.
Norway.- Gamban has entered into its first partnership to supply it self-exclusion software outside of the UK under an agreement with Norsk Tipping.
The agreement with the state-owned operator means that Norwegians will be able to use Gamban’s free software to block themselves from accessing igaming websites and apps on all devices in the country.
Players will not need to be Norsk Tipping customers to access the tool. They can choose to self-exclude for 180 days, a year, three years or five years.
Although Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto are the only licensed operators legally permitted to offer igaming in Norway, Gamban’s blocker will also block access to all unlicensed sites operating in Norway.
Norsk Tipping’s head of responsible gaming, Bjørn Helge Hoffmann, said: “Gamban is a valuable supplement to Norsk Tipping’s own exclusion systems.
“The filter makes it possible for us to offer extended protection to customers who want to block access to all gaming offers on the internet – both regulated and unregulated.”
Norsk Tipping has slashed the maximum monthly loss limits on its most high-risk games over the Christmas period by 25 per cent. The decision was introduced as a temporary measure, although the operator has said it may be extended.
Norway recently allocated NOK 15m (€1.4m) to tackle problem gambling, which has been increasing in the country despite its limited gaming market.
