Support for Gamblers during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Posted On April 8, 2020

Helpline for Anonymous and Confidential Help related to Gambling

Gluecksfall has launched its helpline for problematic gamblers, their loved ones, and for professionals who need extra support. The caller will be guaranteed anonymity and confidentiality, and they will speak with a qualified counselor, who will be our helpline agent. Only qualified professionals will be helpline agents, in order to ensure the highest standard of care.

For the time being, the helpline will only run once a week on Wednesdays. They will then be assessing the need of this helpline, and should they notice that the need is a large one, they will be increasing their service over more days. The helpline can be reached by calling or texting +356 7933 3374. Should someone require support outside of the regular hours, they can contact us on malta@gluecksfall.com.
