You're welcome, I hope my answers don't mess up the data set.



Plenty of testing isn't about what you're told it is about anyway. Not saying this is the case here, but also isn't uncommon either. They don't want the guinea pig to ruin the test by knowing what is actually being looked at.

I started the survey but stopped after several questions because they all seemed to be geared towards someone who is addicted to gambling, which I am not.

Iím interested to know whether or not the creators of this are aware that:

1) There is a subset of gamblers that are playing at a legitimate advantage over the casino

2) A large percentage of this forum falls into that subset

and

3) Whether the data gathered from those types of players is useful to what they are studying

Hi gamerfreak, I know it may seem like the questions are geared towards those addicted but the questions are just trying to determine where along the continuum of gambling different participants sit and how their experience of gambling differ. We are aware that not everyone who gambles is addicted. Data from anyone who has ever played slot-machines would be helpful, so feel free to return to the survey and complete your responses as the survey allows you to exit it and return to complete it at a later time. Thanks for the feedback

I agree with you rxwine that a number of studies cannot fully inform you about what they are studying as this may influence the results. This is however not the case here, we are in fact looking at mental imagery and gambling behaviour, and all participants are fully informed about the study.

Fortunately (for you), I have absolutely nothing going on today, so I did your study.

My only comment is that the video of people playing slot machines is hard for me to identify with, because I don't like video slot machines in general (there are only two I'll play), and the slot machines people were playing were the ones I hate the most. But I answered the questions following it anyway but imagining myself playing Quit Hit Platinum.
