Massachusetts to test the nation's first slots tech geared towards curbing gambling addiction

Posted on Monday, March 28, 2016 by "T".
When it comes to gambling, are you a control freak? You know, the point in which you initially tell yourself that you will definitely stop playing as soon as you've reached your specified limit? That limit can either be time or money restrictions, but the important thing is, you stop playing to avoid going overboard and regretting your actions in the end. Let's face it - all of us have at some po[...]   Read more » Massachusetts to test the nation's first slots tech geared towards curbing gambling addiction

It's nothing new really...just kind of new to Land Based Casino's, but there are plenty of Online Slots that have such reminders, and the option to set loss or even win limits! Anyway, good it finally found it's way back to the origin of Online slots Smile

But of course, reaching the set limit does not ban a gambler from playing further. The limits can also be adjusted while playing and players can opt out at any time from the system.

That sounds ridiculous. I can't believe this would be effective at all. It should at least shut you out for a period of time.
The limits set in a poker/casino client don't work that way do they? I thought that once you've reached your limit you can't deposit for a while?

That differs per Casino, but basically, if they comply with Regulatory Bodies such as for instance the UKGC, the MGA or Kahnawake, then yes, the deposit limits and/or Self Exclusion/Take a Break options do have a cooling off period - once reached or initiated - before you can change them. I believe these Land Based options you quoted, are indeed a bit ridiculous in terms of "protection", as it's more of a reminder than anything else.

But the example i meant, was that this is also something that is normal in many Casino's, that reminds you how long you played and what you wagered and won/lost, mostly once per hour, in the form of a pop up.

------------
The two missing words after "per" in the first sentence, and between "many"and the "s" in the last sentence: ca-sin-o Big Smile

If that wasn't already obvious/

Agree. Some place online even displays messages about how long you logged in and how much you lost during that period. And I don't think that helps at all tbh, once somebody in the downward spiral only a power outage could help him imo.

I agree that for totally extreme problem gamblers it would not help one iota..then again nothing will, save for incarceration w/o i-net and such Big Smile

But, for normal players, a reality check every hour is not bad at all, and can actually help someone at times...
