Sydney and Nevada Universities Collaborate on Gambling Research

A collaboration between the Universities of Sydney and Nevada has been agreed upon which will focus on research into gambling. The agreement was brokered during the first days of a two-week trade mission including representatives from Australia and Nevada.

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval was involved in bringing about the agreement which was signed by Professor Alex Blaszczynski from the University of Sydney’s Gambling Treatment Clinic and Research Unit and Dr Bo Bernhard, executive director of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’s International Gaming Institute.

The aim of the agreement is to give “both institutions the opportunity to lead in the field of policies and directions of research related to sports betting, integrity of sports, gambling regulation and the psychology of gambling behaviours.”

The research will particularly focus on the fast-evolving industry of interactive gambling which is played primarily via online casinos and sportsbooks. Nevada was the first state to legalise online gambling in February this year and according to Gov. Sandoval this was a primary motivator behind the partnership.

“As our state takes leadership of the emerging interactive gaming industry, it is important that this new segment of gaming be as accountable and regulated as the traditional gaming industry is in Nevada. In order to maintain the integrity of this sport, those who are participating, both from a user and provider standpoint, must be held to the same high standard that we enforce on our casino floors. I can think of no better research entity to identify loopholes in the interactive gaming world as well as the psychological tendencies of those who seek to game the system than the International Gaming Institute at UNLV.”

“Today’s partnership with the University of Sydney will help to ensure that those who seek to do harm to the interactive gaming industry are better prevented.”
