How Online Casinos Bet on Addicts Through Psychological Ploys

Addiction of any form can be a hard demon to battle with, but it is made even more difficult when amoral companies use tactics to prey on those struggling with addiction. This is best demonstrated in the murky world of online gambling.  In this episode of the podcast, we will take a look at the insidious psychological tactics used by some online casinos to keep addicts playing, and we will also explore what happens in the brain when an addict engages in gambling.

Joining me on the podcast to better understand the types of tactics used by these online casinos is Daniel Dolejsi, a former online casino employee and the Social Media and Community Manager of Casino Guru, a company that provides honest information about online gambling, 

In addition to Daniel, I am also joined by Dr. Aaron Weiner, a clinical psychologist who runs his own private practice and has served as the director of the addiction service line for a psychiatric hospital, to discuss the psychological and physiological pathways that lead to gambling addictions.
