Integrating Insights: Responsible Gambling Research Shares a Different Perspective of Players

A traditional view of how market research can support business decisions may be focused solely on commerce concepts such as: product, marketing, and operations. As we continue to focus on healthy approaches and positive growth to gambling, we began to uncover new customer insights focused on responsible gambling. How do we leverage this to learn more about our players?

This presentation will highlight recent responsible gambling research initiatives that BCLC has been involved in over the past year. It will cover topics such as; responsible gambling segmentation, GameSense branding insights, and how it has benefited BCLC in learning more about whom our players are and how we can use this information in business planning.
