New South Wales to Conduct New Gambling Study

Prevalence of gambling and problem gambling subject of the study

A researcher’s tender has been called by the NSW Government's Minister for Gaming and Racing, Kevin Greene, in order to conduct a study about the prevalence of gambling and problem gambling in New South Wales. The funding of the survey in the amount of up to AUS $250 000 will be provided by the Responsible Gambling Fund, and in it at least 10 000 people will be interviewed about their gambling habits over the previous 12 months.

Some of the topics of the study will cover the effect of technology such as online gambling and the easy access afforded by mobile phones, other hand-held devices and laptops, and it will also use the Canadian Problem Gambling Index.

ACNielsen conducted the previous research study, completed in 2006 with 5000 respondents, and in order to provide a precise comparison, the same methodology will be used to conduct this one.

Based on the 2006 survey, 64.5 percent of the adult population were non-problem gamblers, 31percent didn't gamble at all, 1.6 percent were at moderate risk of become problem gamblers and 0.8 percent were problem gamblers.

The new survey should begin in the first trimester of 2011, and the results should be known by the fourth quarter of 2011.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
