The app will be available in Scandinavia, and will alert consumers of problem gambling symptoms and support measures.

Stockholm-listed Kindred Group Plc has announced that it will fund the production of a public ‘Gambling Therapy app.’

The app will be available in Scandinavia, and will alert consumers of problem gambling symptoms and support measures.

The online gambling group details that the free app forms part of its ongoing commitment towards creating ‘safe and secure’ environment for all betting customers.

Initially, The Gambling Therapy app will be released in all four Nordic languages (Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Danish).

Pedro Romero, Head of Gambling Therapy told TotallyGaming.com: “The Gambling Therapy app provides information and tools for people to increase their awareness about the risks of excessive gambling, and options available if they want to reduce or stop gambling.

“Knowledge and information is always useful and can help destigmatize gambling disorder.
There is no silver bullet for people struggling with excessive gambling (in most cases there are multiple underlying issues that need to be addressed), so we try to encourage people to seek further help if they need it.

“It is important to have a mobile-friendly app with information, advice and exercises as a critical first step on the journey to recovery.”

Totally Gaming says: One of the biggest problems that are faced by those at risk of problem gambling, is recognising when their gambling gets out of control, this app can help gamblers recognise when they need to take the necessary steps to gamble responsibly.
