The terrible tragedy that would have taken place had Flight 93 gone where the hijackers wanted it to go must continue to haunt us.“The actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 taught us that we are – each one of us – capable of doing remarkably selfless and heroic things.“What they did saved countless lives. And what they did told us all a great deal about the potential nobility that lies within each of us.“Today, we remember what they did on September 11, 2001. And we will be forever grateful. Thank you.”All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.# # # Governor Wolf Orders Flags At Half-Staff in Honor of Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance September 11, 2015center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Senet Group calls for ‘targeted interventions’ to combat problem-gambling

Posted on by

first_img Share Share “The gambling industry can do a great deal more to develop and promote tools and techniques which assist gamblers in understanding the positive benefits of control, but more importantly how they can keep track of their gambling, whether that’s through the amount they are spending or the time they devote to playing.  “In this we can look to other sectors, such as health and wellness, for recent examples where consumer access to more and more information about their own patterns of behaviour, is helping people make better choices.”The research has shown that individuals gain much more enjoyment from gambling when they feel as though they are in control of their behaviours. The report, therefore, calls for more responsible gambling initiatives to work from the principle that control ought to be central to their strategies.Wilmot added: “This research will now inform the next generation of Senet’s player messaging campaign, When the Fun Stops, Stop, which sought to put an understanding of customers at the heart of efforts to raise standards.  “This campaign has now reached an estimated 82% of regular gamblers since its launch, and was itself born out of research which revealed a link between negative emotional states and the impairment of control when gambling.”Damon De Ionno, Managing Director of Revealing Reality, added: “For a long time, gambling industry operators have been asking what they can do to help people gamble more safely and responsibly.“Our research has deliberately focused on people’s behaviours in real-life gambling situations.  What we have found is that people struggle to gamble safely unless they are in control while they are gambling.“This research provides a clear summary and examples of many ways that operators can actively help their customers stay in control of their gambling – and make sure they don’t undermine their attempts to do so.”Sarah Hanratty is due to speak at this year’s Betting on Football as part of our Sponsorship Forum. Betting on Football is held 19-22 March and is the only trade conference that brings together decision makers from international operators to address the recent issues and opportunities in the sports betting industry. Stamford Bridge provides the perfect setting for 200 expert speakers across 40 sessions, including high level business and networking opportunities for key suppliers, top affiliates and sports clubs & organisations to meet with the operators.

Produced by Revealing Reality, an independent behavioural research-specialist agency, the research employed a combination of ethnographic interviews. It shadowed observations of 25 participants, selected by PGSI scores to be representative of the low, medium and high-risk gambling categories.It aims to look at where an understanding of why and how people behave as they do can help to identify opportunities to influence and change behaviour for the better.Chief Executive of the Senet Group, Sarah Hanratty, commented: “At the heart of the project is the belief that successful solutions must empower people to stay in control and that we need to make it easier for them to do so. There is a complex set of factors involved, not least people’s personal lives, game design, stake sizes, gambling environments, peer influences, advertising and marketing.“The insights from this research will inform the next evolution of Senet’s player messaging, where the results and impact are more clearly defined in specific behaviour change outcomes, and are more measurable as a result.”Incidents of gambling which left people subsequently felt remorse were often associated with times they felt they had lost control of their gambling behaviour, for example, when they had bet higher sums of money than they had originally intended to, spent longer in betting shops than they had planned or played on machines or online games that they usually avoided.Commenting on the research, Gillian Wilmot, Chairman of the Senet Group, said: “This research report provides some practical insights into how people manage their gambling on a day to day basis, and how the gambling industry might support their enjoyment of gambling by helping them stay in control.
