Evaluating VLT responsible gaming features and interventions in Alberta: Phase I - final report
Prepared for: Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission
The purpose of this research project is to conduct an evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions aimed at helping adult Albertans who are experiencing gambling problems related to their play on video lottery terminals (VLTs) that are located in bars and lounges throughout the province. The Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission (AGLC) has implemented these interventions, which include (a) features installed on the VLTs themselves (e.g., money counter, time clock, pop-up time reminders, 1-800 helpline number); (b) signage aids in bars and lounges (e.g., problem gambling posters and pamphlets); and, (c) employee problem gambling awareness training to enable staff to assist problem gamblers.
