Abstract

Collaborative with the Division on Addiction

The collaborative set off in 2005 and since then produced 18 peer reviewed publications, leading to a paradigm shift in online gambling research and which allowed us to establish an evidence-based consumer protection concept.

Goals:

  • Creating a scientific evidence base about actual online gambling behavior, relying on behavioral data
  • Continuously evaluating games and player protection measures and designing a consumer protection concept based on this evidence
  • Creating an early-detection model for the identification of customers at-risk of developing problems

Transparency:

  • Full access to de-identified gambling transaction data of large samples (up to 100,000 customers), monitored over several years
  • Datasets are made available to the global research community by means of the Transparency Project.

Disciplines
