BetBlocker announced that in collaboration with L&L Europe it has launched a version of the app for the Fire OS platform, meaning that it can now support more vulnerable players in the online gaming sector. This new release reportedly makes BetBlocker the first, and only, gambling blocking software to be available on the Fire OS platform.

BetBlocker functions as a responsible gambling tool empowering those suffering from a gambling compulsion to re-assert control of their habits by enabling them to restrict their internet capable devices from accessing in excess of 6400 online gambling operator websites. Those wishing to avail themselves of the services BetBlocker can provide may download it, entirely free of charge, and install it on as many devices as they possess. There is no cap on the number of times an individual may download or install BetBlocker and it will always remain cost free. This recent addition means the reach of BetBlocker now extends across: Android, Apple, Windows, Linux, iOS and now includes Amazon’s Fire phones and tablets.

“The internet age has brought with it a host of new challenges for society, not least for those suffering from gambling addiction,” said Duncan Garvie, manager of ThePOGG.com. “Everyone now effectively carries a casino, bingo hall, poker room and betting shop in their pockets at all time. The way that people engage with the internet is constantly changing and BetBlocker has to keep evolving to meet the needs of our users. The addition of the Fire OS platform is a fantastic improvement to the BetBlocker service, extending coverage to one of the fastest growing hand held device markets in the world right now.”

“At L&L Europe we understand that responsible gambling is the top priority for ourselves and for our customers,” said L&L Europe CEO Christopher Dalli. “While there are a number of projects that are using responsible gaming as yet another moneymaking exercise, ThePOGG have time and time again shown that this is an endeavour that is close to their heart and it is our privilege to be able to collaborate on this project with them. Just like ThePOGG we believe in a safe and responsible online gaming environment and in order to achieve that we believe it is our duty to help develop and facilitate access to fantastic tools like BetBlocker that could prove invaluable for vulnerable players.”
