  • 20. At issue… As exposure to a stimulus increases, the most vulnerable are the first to be “infected” We might see increases in gambling participation near epicenters of gambling (LaPlante & Shaffer, 2007)
  • 21. Is there a link? Play for fun Play for pay
  • 22. From the mouth of the gamer Focus groups Objective: 1. Understanding factors that attract young adults to online gambling, including the potential role played by social media sites. 2. Avoid presuppositions influencing program of research
  • 23. Method Six focus groups were conducted: 1) Play-for-fun (N=30): Three focus groups of social casino gamblers, but who do not play online for money 2) Play-for-pay (n=21): Three focus groups with regular online gamblers
  • 24. Everyone who is participating in this group has indicated gambling online for money. That makes you the experts. We are turning to you to help us understand certain things related to online gambling activity. We are not looking to find out personal information on your play activity; we are looking for information in general. 1.For example, I’d like to gain a better understanding of the things that lead to online gambling in the first place. Based on what you know, what are the factors, the events, or the influences that result in a young person deciding to bet money on gambling activities online? 2.You know that social media sites have gambling-type games such as Texas-Hold’em or Sloto-mania. In your opinion, do you think experience with these games leads a person to seek online gambling sites? In other words, do these types of games serve as a form of initiation to gambling online with real money? 3.In your opinion, do you think people who gamble online have particular personality traits, or factors that are unique to them that make them more likely to gamble online? 4.There are a lot of gambling sites out there. How do you choose one over the other? 5.What are the features that render one online gambling site more appealing than another? 6.If you think about the sites that are “not good”, sites that you have navigated away from, what were the things you did not like? 7.What are the pros and cons of online gambling? 8.Once you are engaged in an online gambling session, what usually makes you decide that it is time to stop? 9.What strategies do people your age tend to use to minimize their risks? Are there common responsible gambling practices?
  • 25. 1.When you think about social media sites like Facebook, what is the first thought that comes to mind? What do you like best about social media? What do you like least? 2.You all must be aware of games that are offered on sites such as Facebook. I’m talking about games such as Farmville, Words with Friends, etc… What, in your opinion, are the benefits or downfalls of these games? Overall, do they contribute to your well-being? If not, in what way? Which games have the greatest appeal? 3.There are also gambling-type games such as Texas Hold’em and simulated casino play offered on these sites. Texas Hold’em is actually the most popular of all the games offered on Facebook (62 million fans on their page). What, do you think, is the appeal of these free gambling-type games? 4.Even though there is no real money exchanged, people do seem to get very caught up in the gambling-type games, often playing for longer than intended. Due to recent developments, Facebook now allows online casinos to advertise on their site. What are your opinions on this? Would you ever click on the casino ads? 5.We are interested in your impressions (based on your own experiences or those of others whom you know) about what role, if any, social networking sites play in promoting or encouraging online gambling behavior (for real money). 6.Do you think individuals who never would have considered gambling online, will gamble now that they are exposed through these social media sites? 7.Online casinos often offer “play for fun” options, allowing you to play without real money. In your opinion, what are some advantages or downfalls of these play-for-free options? 8.Thinking about the free games on social media sites as well as free-play options on online gambling sites, would people be likely to move from free games to paying games? Why or why not?

Playing for fun not stimulating enough. 8. I just wanted to try spicing things up.
