Gambless to phase out wellbeing app

Gambless has begun the gradual phase-out of its mental health and wellbeing app, which helps those suffering from problem gambling harms and addiction.

Launched in 2020, the Gambless app is recognised as a pioneering tool offering mental health support to tackle gambling addiction and the symptoms of gambling harms.

Of significance, the Gambless app has supported over 20,000 individuals in their struggle with gambling addiction, in which Gambless served as the first phase of intervention for users seeking long-term help.

The phase-out will see the Gambless app remain available to download in app stores, but it will no longer receive updates or new developments.

CEO Maurizio Savino explained that the closure of the app was primarily due to significant costs in operating and maintaining Gambless’s mobile services.

Savino stated: “As a self-funded project, it has become impractical to continue without external support from industry partners or regulatory bodies. When we started Gambless, we somewhat overestimated the interest of the industry in supporting a tool designed to help those dealing with gambling addiction.

“Unfortunately, we did not receive any backing from regulators, organisations, charities, or gambling operators, which has led us to this difficult decision.”

Despite the closure, Gambless maintains its mission to support individuals with gambling addiction. Gambless users will be informed in the coming days about this transition and the next developments, which will enable continued high-quality support for those in need, with improved resources and assistance.
