A team from the University of Lethbridge and the University Manitoba are currently conducting a study that is researching women’s experiences of recovery from problem gambling. We are inviting women aged 18 and over to participate in a one-hour interview. 

We are interested in learning your perspectives on your definition of problem gambling, the life events or other issues that led to a problem with gambling, and those that supported a period of recovery. We would like to use this information to help service providers identify critical time periods for prevention and intervention, and facilitate greater help-seeking responses in women who identify as having a problem with gambling. 

An honorarium will be provided to participants. 

If you are interested in learning more about this project, please contact:

This research has been approved by the Human Subjects Review at the Univ of Manitoba Psychology- Sociology Research Ethics Board: 204-474-7122 orhumanethics@umanitoba.ca and the Univ of Lethbridge Office of Research Ethics: 403-329-2747 or research.services@uleth.ca.

From Financial Post

BOSTON — Leading daily fantasy sports companies DraftKings and FanDuel have agreed to pay a total of $2.6 million to resolve an investigation by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey into what she called “alleged unfair and deceptive practices” by the companies that left some participants in the contests inadequately protected.

Healey, a Democrat, says the companies co-operated with the investigation and have since made significant changes to their business models to protect consumers, including protections for minors.

She says the money will be used by the state for consumer protection programs.

Healey says the investigation began before her office drafted regulations governing daily fantasy sports last year. Since then, she says, her office has implemented consumer protection regulations for the industry.

DraftKings is Boston based. FanDuel is headquartered in New York.

LAS VEGAS –  The casino industry's largest lobbying group in the U.S. on Thursday rolled out a new code of conduct with consumer protection measures that it says are meant to promote responsible gambling.The code of the American Gaming Association calls on casino operators to be more transparent with patrons and provide training to employees. Its announcement in Las Vegas came within months of two high-profile criminal cases that drew attention to the effects of compulsive gambling as authorities believe the perpetrators were problem gamblers.

The new code calls on casino operators to generally explain patrons the odds of winning or losing at various games and to not use advertising that contains claims that gambling activity will guarantee a person's social, financial or personal success. It also includes training requirements for employees on procedures for dealing with underage gambling and other issues.
