Avatars gather around a poker tableThe not for profit that I work for is doing some research into gambling and gaming (for background see Crikey’s article from 15 November 2012http://blogs.crikey.com.au/game-on/2012/11/15/gambling-on-a-game-fifa-13-and-virgin-gaming/ ). They could really use some first person perspectives on this to wrap their heads around what’s happening. 

  • Have you or any gamers in your life run into advertisements for gaming in your games? 
  • Has gambling actually been a part of game play within a game you tried? 
  • What about any apps or snack/short games? 
  • Have you or a friend/family member made or lost real money in these games? 
  • Is there someone in your life that has become addicted to gambling through gaming? 
  • Or, have you researched gaming and gambling and have resources you’d be willing to share? 

Please leave a comment below and please share it if you know someone who could share some insights with us – and via Twitter if you’re comfy doing that. We’d really like to get some conversations started. If you’d like to share some info but don’t want to do it publicly, send an email to c.ralfs@rasa.org.au
