Assessment of online games design changes
Use of multiple tabs
There has been a statistically significant reduction in reported simultaneous slots play.
Consumers do not simultaneously play on multiple tabs or accounts The game design changes prohibited the functions designed to allow consumers to play two slots games simultaneously. However, gambling businesses do not have sight of and cannot influence consumer behaviour if they have accounts with other gambling businesses. If consumers gamble with multiple gambling businesses simultaneously, it would undermine the aim of this change.
The Online Tracker Survey data from past 12 month online slot players indicates that there has been a significant reduction in reported simultaneous slot play.
