Report 1: Identifying harm? Potential markers of harm from industry data

Abstract

This report is part of the Responsible Gambling Trust's Machines Research Strategy which aimed to explore whether industry data generated by machines in bookmakers could be used to identify harmful patterns of play. This report documents the different patterns of play that could be considered harmful and that might be recorded in industry data (called potential markers of harm). Once this list was generated, examples of industry data were used to see how these patterns of play varied within the data and how this might be analysed to identify those experiencing gambling-related harm (see Report 3 for fuller details).
