Gambling on the web

8 replies • Last post

Hi everybody!

We are a team from the Geneva University Hospitals making a study about gambling on internet and need your participation.

A variety of gambling activities on the Internet, including online betting and online gaming, has managed to show steady growth and expansion over the last decades with a very high degree of privacy. Little is known about how people use these services, their social and psychological profiles, their motivations and attitudes towards gaming. Your participation in this research is extremely valuable in furthering the understanding of the nature of gambling and Internet gambling.

Areas covered by the survey include:
• Psychological characteristics which may influence the way of playing (impulsivity, mood, personality, self-esteem),
• Demographic and occupational characteristics,
• Motivations to play,
• Problematic commitment.

This research is not necessarily intended for people with gambling problems, but for anyone who play money on the Internet.

Your participation is strictly voluntary. You do not have to answer questions that you do not want to answer, and you may quit any of the questionnaires at any time. Your participation is confidential. Only the immediate research team will be given access to the raw data collected from this questionnaire. All data will be stored electronically in the Addiction department of Geneva University hospitals’ server in accordance with ethical research protocols.

If you have any questions about this study, and your participation in it, please email Doctor Yasser Khazaal, yasser.khazaal@hcuge.ch

Please, read the information form at:

Thank you for your interest. Your participation represents an extremely important contribution to the success of this project!

How long does the survey take to complete? If it is not TOO long, I will definitely take part.

Took me a little over ten minutes, and I worked through it fairly fast.

I do NOT like the ideas on the last page AT ALL! Sad

Also, I had to LOL at the question that said something about praying to win helps one to win. If only. lol!

I just went ahead and did this. It had some interesting ideas pitched for potential problem gambling help. I recommend everyone take the survey if they have the time.

I did not care for most of those ideas at all in that one section. I think I agreed with maybe the first two and that was it. Cutting people off or limiting what they can do and how much they can play? Like to see them try that at the land casino. lol

I don't believe in that, but that is just me. I think adults should be allowed to make their own decisions. I do believe in education and prevention and informing people of the signs of problem gambling and letting them know where they can get help, etc.

We also have to agree to a follow up survey in a couple of months. Was it two or three months, 'Slim?
