It further stated that the data for 2023 “indicates that while the trend is consistent, more needs to be done”.
“While Kindred continues to work actively to achieve a safer gambling experience for all customers, it also recognises that further steps need to be taken to establish a long-term sustainable industry across all markets,” the operator added.
The operator noted a positive trend where customers flagged for harmful gambling behaviour improved after an intervention: “This quarter, 86.7 per cent of detected customers improved their behaviour after interventions.”
