Gamban has announced a partnership with The Problem Gambling Help Network of West Virginia.

As part of the agreement, Gamban will be free for players and problem gamblers to use in West Virginia.

Thanks to the agreement, Mountain State residents can access Gamban's online gambling blocking software "free of charge," which could help improve the gambling addiction problem in the area. 

According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, in 2019, 1 in 50 people living in West Virginia could have a gambling problem. Meanwhile, WalletHub ranked West Virginia as sixth when compared to other states in terms of gambling addiction. 

Since 2000, the gambling treatment service in West Virginia has helped over 15,000 people with gambling addiction and their families.

It can provide support for gamblers by using its network of more than 70 state-wide therapists for treatment referrals.

The service also provides training opportunities, prevention and outreach services, a 24-hour helpline, support groups and retreat weekends.

Melissa Etherington, Partnerships Manager at Gamban, said: "I am very pleased to be working with The Problem Gambling Help Network of West Virginia and happy that this partnership will provide an extra resource and layer of protection for those whose gambling has become a problem for them in West Virginia.” 

Jennifer Davis-Walton, Director of Gambling Addiction Services at First Choice Services, added: "It is exciting to partner with Gamban to provide a valuable tool for so many. With more accessibility to online gambling, the benefits of Gamban software are immeasurable for those experiencing gambling problems.”
