Nova Scotia Video Lottery program changes: Impact analysis

Abstract

Initial results suggest that the changes to the {VL} program are collectively achieving their desired effect on Nova Scotia's video lottery player base. It is important to note that these results are based on initial data. More research is required to determine if these trends are indicators of long-term results. The combined impact of the midnight shutdown, the terminal reduction, the stop feature removal, and the slowing of play appears to be quite positive. These initiatives were designed to reduce terminal accessibility and availability. To this end, there have been some initial declines in both terminal accessibility and overall {VL} play activity.
