Online gambling tracking systems

With almost 90% of households connected to the internet and more than half the population using smartphones, more than ever before, it is now possible for millions of Quebecers to participate in online gambling activities. Since online gamblers are more at risk of developing problematic behaviour than traditional players, online gambling involves new public health challenges. Classic prevention strategies have become obsolete in an online gambling universe. There is an urgent need to develop online prevention tools that can better support gamblers at risk of developing problematic behaviours.

Through the combined analyses of big data from Loto-Québec’s website and data from an online survey administered to Loto-Québec’s website users, this project will identify behavioural patterns associated with problematic online gambling. The overall goal of the project is to create tools that can help identify risky practices in real time, thereby enabling operators to direct intervention services to players when they need them.
