Survey help
I am here to ask any site / visitors / members if they could spare ten minutes or less to take part in my survey which is trying to investigate effective responsible gamlbing features. I really am a PhD student!! and I have set up an online survey which is trying to identify features which gamblers think would be useful for persons who feel that their gambling is becoming a problem. I am not asking you to take part in this survey because I have a problem with you guys, or that I think all gamblers are problem gamblers - it is because I think you might have a greater familiarity and understanding of useful features in a site than I do because you are more familiar with the internet gambling environment. Academics have suggested many features which they think are useful for problem gambling but this does not consider the opinions of people who take part in gambling. The survey is not perfect and the literature in my research explains some of the limitations - however it is one survey to cover many different kinds of online gambling. Any thoughts you may have - I would really appreciate hearing.

Well, if it's for science purposes I don't see why not. Smile

It's a problem when you're losing money you can't spare.

There are many gamblers out there who make a living out of "gambling". They are playing +EV (positive expected value) games (games in which they can have an advantage if played right). Poker is the most popular +EV game today because of the TV and the various factors that affect the outcome like: odds (the mathematical correctness of investing into a hand), psychology, reading the opponent and a little bit of luck to spice up the game.

The worst type of game to play is a game in which you have no control on the winning odds like Slots, you only push the spin button, everything else is controlled by the software.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Good luck with the survey and come back to tell us the results when you're finished.
