Ohio has become the first state in the US to offer free-of-charge gambling-blocking software. The move has been made in collaboration with Time Out Ohio (TOO) and Gamban.

TOO, known for enabling individuals to self-ban from Ohio's physical casinos and racinos, has expanded its services by teaming up with Gamban to provide state-wide access to software, that effectively blocks online gambling sites and apps across all devices.

The partnership aims to offer comprehensive support for individuals seeking to self-ban from gambling. The move allows individuals to sign up for Gamban alone for online gambling blockage, or use both TOO and Gamban to encompass all forms of gambling, both online and offline.

Jimmie Hicks, Deputy Director of Responsible Gambling at Ohio Lottery Commission, stated: “A Gamban one-year subscription is being offered at no cost to anyone looking for protection from mobile sports betting and other online gambling coupled with Time Out Ohio or as a stand-alone protection."

Gamban, known for its partnerships with major players in the US gambling industry such as FanDuel, Unibet, Bally's and WagerScore, secured a three-year extension to its funding earlier in the year. Such funding has allowed Gamban to continue offering its software to those experiencing harm from gambling free of charge.

Matt Zarb-Cousin, Co-Founder of Gamban, praised TOO’s work, stating: “Time Out Ohio is a fantastic voluntary program 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. 

He went on to add: “We hope other states will follow the lead of Ohio, which has been incredibly forward-thinking at a time when mobile sports betting across the US is growing rapidly.”
