About the webinar

The experience of problem gambling is unique to different groups. Older adults, in particular, frequently engage in gambling as a leisure activity. However, this may increase their risk of developing problem gambling. Various factors play a role in making older adults particularly vulnerable to problem gambling.

In this March 14th webinar, we explored how factors such as loneliness and gambling incentives can facilitate problem gambling amongst older adults. A researcher presented findings from a study examining the impact of gambling venue bus tours on problem gambling among older adults in Ontario. Following the presentation, the audience engaged in a question-and-answer session.
