The impact of an audience and venue size on poker machine gambling

posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Matthew RockloffMatthew Rockloff
The studies described herein explore how the intensity of gambling behaviour on Poker Machines (e.g., bet-size and speed of betting) is influenced by the size of the venue, and more specifically, the number of patrons within a venue. These studies suggest that large gaming venues contribute to behaviours consistent with greater player losses, and this effect may chiefly result from the informational effect of the broadcasting of wins across the gaming floor.
