Regions: Europe Western Europe Belgium Belgium makes masks mandatory in gaming establishments The Belgian Ministry of Security and the Interior has issued a decree making the wearing of masks in the country’s gambling venues compulsory.The decree stated that a declining infection rate made it possible to relax social distancing measures, but due to the ongoing and ever-evolving nature of the situation, it was necessary to adjust protocols and processes.This, it explained, means that for all citizens above the age of 12, it is now necessary to cover noses and mouths while in public places.The new rules cover venues such as cinemas, concert halls, places of worship, museums and shops, as well as gambling venues such as casinos, betting shops and gaming halls. Citizens that do not comply will face criminal charges.In addition, all casinos and gaming halls must remain closed from 1am for an uninterrupted period of at least five hours. They can remain open from their normal opening times until 1am, unless the local authority in a region where the venue is based requires it to close earlier.This, the decree said, was to bring the opening protocols in line with those in place for drinking establishments and restaurants, and to avoid “uncontrolled gatherings” at night.Belgium’s casinos and gaming halls opened on 1 July, having been shuttered since 18 March, with betting shops having reopened from 8 June.

The study adds to prior research on gambling limits, including a study by the UK Government’s Behavioural Insights Team, which found that differences in message content had little impact when encouraging use and that the only factor associated with significant increases in uptake was reduced friction in setting the limit. In addition, the study found that the messages were more effective when displayed as an in-app notification than via email, but found no correlation between the theme of content within these messages and their efficacy. However, the authors were cautious about the results, noting that it was possible that the players simply spent more elsewhere. 5th October 2020 | By Aaron Noy Of those who received an email, 0.56% set a limit, while the total was 0.82% for those with an in-app notification, but the study’s authors noted that many who received the email did not open it, and of those who did, 2.0% set a limit. Regions: Oceania Australia Responsible gambling “Overall, the findings from this study suggest customer messaging may be an inexpensive and easily implemented strategy online gambling sites can use to increase the use of deposit limits,” Heirene and Gainsbury explained. In the study, a group of customers of three different Australian online operators were randomly sent an email or notification with a message encouraging the player to set deposit limits, and if they did not do so within five days, received a second such message. Heirene and Gainsbury then examined the gambling habits of this group and a control group who did not receive the messages. As the study, which was conducted by Robert Heirene and Sally Gainsbury the Brain & Mind Centre at the University of Sydney School of Psychology and partially funded by Responsible Wagering Australia (RWA), is a preprint, it has not yet completed peer review. The study of 31,989 wagering customers found that not only did customers who received limits bet less on average, but they also bet with less intensity and volatility. “It is unknown whether deposit limit users migrated to other sites and therefore did not reduce their overall gambling expenditure and involvement,” they said.

Only three (0.08%) of the customers in the control group set a limit within that time. Messaging about limits helps reduce net losses, study claims A new preprint study claims that online betting customers who set deposit limits had lower average wagers and net losses, while in-account notifications were found to be an effective way of encouraging these limits. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The study also found that those who had set limits before were the most likely to do so again, while men were more likely to set limits than women. Those who had accounts with multiple operators in the study, meanwhile, were less likely than average to set limits. Topics: Social responsibility Sports betting Responsible gambling Those who set limits were more likely to reduce their gambling levels than those who did not, with those who gambled between $6 and $94 per day the most likely to reduce spend. However, even those who received messages but did not set a limit were more likely to gamble less on average. Although the messages were grouped by theme into social, informative or personal messages, the level of effectiveness for all three was similar. Email Address read more

The event was co-hosted by theCrew, and students and veterans came out to support the campaign.“It’s always kind of a strange feeling getting recognized because almost any veteran will tell you that we don’t consider ourselves heroes; we are just doing the job we signed up to do,” Marine Corps veteran Gabriel Merigian said. “To have people in the school voluntarily do this for us… it’s just touching.”Lila Public Relations is competing in the Public Relations Student Society of America’s 2016 Bateman competition. This year’s competition features Student Veterans of America (SVA), and participants compete by raising awareness for SVA on their own campuses.Madison Ladd, a senior strategic communication major and Lila Public Relations team member, said her team members were surprised in their preliminary research that not many students knew there were veterans in their classes.“Part of our campaign is to eliminate the stigma of the ‘broken veteran’ or that they suffer from PTSD,” said Ladd. “They’re very accomplished on campus and they really do a lot for us.”There are two teams competing in the Bateman competition at TCU: Lila Public Relations and More Than a Vet. Each team consists of four senior strategic communication majors.William Howe, president of Student Veterans Alliance and a former combat medic in the army, said both teams reached out to him and he is amazed at the work put into the campaign.“We are still not to the place where we can say, ‘I’m comfortable on campus,’ yet, but I think student veterans feel like they are actually being considered now… They’re not invisible anymore,” Howe said. “Both teams shine a light on veterans that didn’t really exist before, and that has been awesome for us.”Many students came to the event and showed their support for TCU’s student veterans. Senior Kristen Robinson said the idea of writing to veterans was meaningful to her.“They’re not just doing a flimsy event, but are having more substance to it,” said Robinson.This was Lila Public Relation’s last event of the semester.
