Pop-up messages are typically displayed to gamblers during gambling sessions to prevent excessive gambling and aid in assessing maladaptive gambling cognitions. However, the impact of such messages on gambling behavior and cognitions has not previously been quantified. The current meta-analysis seeks to investigate the impact of pop-up messages on gambling-related behaviors and cognitions.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, The Effects of Responsible Gambling Pop-Up Messages on Gambling Behaviors and Cognitions: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis created by Benjamin Bjørseth et al. in 2021.
