Playscan is technology, data and behavioural sciences all together in one solution and continuous improvements require systematic evaluation.
Therefore, during 2013 we invest heavily in evaluation of the product with two external evaluations:
Dr Richard Wood, psychologist and director of GamRes Limited (Montreal, Canada),
Dr Richard Wood is with his experience within the field of Responsible Gambling, testing and development of responsible gambling tools evaluating Playscan in terms of overall effectiveness. Dr Richard Wood will be focusing upon the actual observed impacts of Playscan’s unique targeted communications, aimed at promoting and maintaining healthy playing profiles. The study will also examine the player perspective of using the tool to assist their regular playing activities over time. The findings of the study will be presented in the beginning of July, 2013.
Per Carlbring, Professor of Clinical Psychology at Stockholm University
Per Carlbring, has received fundings for an independent evaluation of Playscan. With his expertise within online-based self-help programs he will guide a post-graduate student to carry out a comprehensive study on Playscan for the next four years to come. The study will be divided into five different part-studies.
