Assessment of online games design changes
Reported awareness has not changed and remains high.
This outcome is most closely linked to the new requirement for gambling businesses to clearly display session length and expenditure information when gambling on online slots products.
We included several statements on our Online Tracker Survey aimed at those who reported gambling on online slots products. The responses indicate that awareness of how much time and money is spent remains high and did not change significantly in the months immediately following the implementation date. However, this statement relies on participant recall, and it is therefore unclear whether participants are reflecting on their slots play before and/or after the online game design changes came into force.
