Gamban co-founder Matt Zarb-Cousin added: “Time Out Ohio is a fantastic voluntary programme that helps individuals who are at risk at a time when gambling harm is increasing. Our goal is to help people regain control and balance of their life, without compromising on the benefits of new technology. Through this partnership, they can do that.
