Gambling and Gaming: What’s the Difference? What’s the Harm?
Wednesday 3rd July 2019, 14:10 - 15:10
Showroom Cinema 2
This session aims to explore gambling and gaming cultures and behaviours among children and young people and examines some recent controversies about the increasing reach of gambling into the lives of children through inclusion of gambling mechanics within games (e.g. Loot Boxes). The panelists, who have a range of perspectives, will consider the extent to which gambling and gaming are connected, the impact of gambling on young people’s lives and question whether this is something to be concerned about or not.
