The UBC Session
Player Behaviour and Awareness of Responsible Gambling
In an alternative format, audio recordings from focus groups of regular gamblers will be used to present the player’s perspective on responsible gambling. This will stimulate discussion on whose responsibility is responsible gambling, how much intervention should be expected or is wanted, and when and how gamblers deviate from responsible play.
