    Safer Gambling Week 2022
    SGW 2022 Conference

  • Standard, static responsible gambling messaging generally fails to influence consumer’s thoughts or behaviours. Consumer protection tools (e.g., deposit limits, activity statements, time-outs) can minimise harm, but their effectiveness is limited through low voluntary uptake. The University of Sydney Gambling Treatment and Research Clinic has worked with numerous online gambling companies to analyse customer data and study the most effective way to deliver messages (timing, content, delivery method) to encourage uptake of tools. This presentation will discuss how using behavioural insights to nudge consumers towards safer gambling behaviours can increase voluntary uptake of consumer protection tools and reduce risky gambling. Data analysis can drive the use of AI to automatically detect markers of risky-gambling and drive responsible gambling interventions. The findings are relevant for online gambling and venues with tracking technology (e.g., through account-based play or cashless payments). The presentation will consider how research can drive innovation towards encouraging safer gambling and harm minimisation.

  • Attendees to the course will come out of the session with practical tools and advice on how to help their companies "do well by doing good". In recent years, there has been increased pressure on the industry to address key impact areas such as gambling related harms or diversity and inclusion.

    This has overtime expanded to a realisation that there is a need (and a way) to operate by having a net positive environmental and social impact. Many companies have tried and best practices exist to help companies understand where they stand and improve their practices.

    This course will address "why" and concretely "how".
