Gambling Which Tips Work for You?

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Many gamblers are looking for strategies to help manage their gambling, and while there is a great deal of advice available, there has been no robust research comprehensively evaluating these strategies among both recreational and problem gamblers. The aim of this study is to develop a definitive list of strategies that work for gamblers as well as advice about implementation that can be promoted across all gambling sites.  

There are four parts to this survey:

  • The survey starts out asking you a few standard questions about demographics like age and gender.
  • The second part of the survey asks about gambling involvement and provides a test you can take to check your gambling.
  • The third section gets into the strategies. We will provide you with 99 strategies that people have used to limit or reduce gambling and we want to know whether you have ever used it and whether it was helpful.
  • Lastly, we will ask a few questions on general health like alcohol and smoking and offer you a couple of self-assessments related to gambling. 

The research team are now ready to test which of these strategies are effective and for whom they are effective. To thank participants for their time, they are offering a $30 shopping voucher at 30 day check-in as well as a free downloadable list of the top strategies.

So if you've got about 30-40 minutes, you can access the survey at the following URL:
