Gambling products, self-exclusion and venue demonstration
This is designed to allow those working in Gambler's Help, gambling harm prevention or community engagement activities to be able to speak to those engaging with gambling products authoritatively and to provide a better understanding of the customer experience of these gambling products.
The workshop will also demonstrate the operation of online wagering, the account sign up process, how online wagering is undertaken and the customer support services available (including limit setting and account exclusions).
The session will also include detailed information on the operation of the various Victorian Self-Exclusion Programs that allow gamblers to exclude themselves from venues, the casino or online gambling. The workshop will provide information to allow participants to be able to explain exclusion processes and support those seeking to access these services.
The session will close with a tour and demonstration of pokie machine, YourPlay, TAB and Keno wagering within the gaming venue setting at a local gaming machine venue. This offers a unique opportunity to witness the operation of gambling products in the venue environment, to see how venues function and experience what those gambling at a venue experience.
