Course Description:

The Game-Bling Workshop aims to develop and enhance critical thinking by exploring the impact of technology on the gambling market, the blurred lines between gaming and gambling and underage ‘gambling’ opportunities (e-sports, fantasy sports, ‘gambling’ in video games, skins, loot crates/supply drops, freemium gaming/in-app purchases, skins betting, etc.). In this workshop, warning signs of problematic behaviours including excessive video gaming, technology use, social gaming and gambling are discussed. Harm reduction strategies and support resources are provided.
