Self-exclusion tool BetBlocker has joined forces with online operator L&L Europe and Dutch gambling awareness organisation Pas op Gamen en Gokken (‘Be Careful with Gaming and Gambling’ – PoGG), to launch BetBlocker in the Dutch language.
Currently, there is no Dutch-language self-exclusion tool available, which L&L’s marketing manager and head of product development, Jan Wienk, described as a massive gap that needs to be closed as the Netherlands moves towards a regulated online market.
L&L has promoted BetBlocker’s software to its UK customers since the application was made available to the public in 2018. After discussing the launch of a Dutch-language version in the Netherlands with BetBlocker founder Duncan Garvie, it was decided that the two organisations would join forces.
Under the agreement, L&L will provide resources to translate the BetBlocker website and application, and will also assist in ensuring Dutch customers can receive support in their native language.
