Thanks Tiffany! Interesting blog. Really hits home the need to:

1. Develop different communications for different needs/audiences (i.e. some featuring slot machines and others sports betting); and

2. The importance of involving the target audience in the design, testing and evaluation of the communication strategy in order to minimize potential unintended negative consequences.
