In the first quarter of 2023, Kindred Group’s share of the revenue from harmful gambling decreased to 3.0 per cent and the improvement effect after interventions was 83.0 per cent. During the quarter, the effects of automated technological solutions such as detecting and engaging with customers at risk through automated interventions are showing initial signs of a positive trend.
MALTA (April 24, 2023) — Kindred Group plc (Kindred) reports a decrease in the share of the revenue from harmful gambling to 3.0 (3.3) per cent in the first quarter of 2023. This positive trend can be attributed to improvements focused on enhancing the customer’s responsible gambling journey. During the quarter, 83.0 per cent of detected customers saw improved gambling behaviour after an intervention was made by Kindred’s responsible gambling and customer-facing teams. This is a small improvement from the previous quarter and serves as another testament to the importance of intervention efforts.

“We have continuously emphasised the importance of detecting and engaging with our customers who are showing markers of harm. To prevent harmful behaviour, early intervention is critical, and I am glad that we can see the result of the rollout of automated interventions that we have done in some of our markets”, says Henrik Tjärnström, CEO of Kindred Group.
“Going forward I look forward to following the holistic approach and collaboration across different teams within Kindred. Responsible gambling is not a factor only for one team, but it is something that every single employee contributes to through their knowledge and commitment to reducing harmful revenue. By our tech teams working hand in hand with the responsible gambling and customer-facing teams, we can swiftly release improved interventions across different markets. All in line with our Journey towards Zero road map”, concludes Tjärnström.
