Playing slot games can have a big impact on teen brains



Following a review of published studies, McMaster researchers have found that playing slot games raises the chance of adolescents and young adults getting addicted for life.

Researchers also found that while gambling is associated with increased strange behaviour of ADD Segments. Combining this addiction with other teen related problems, the results could become very serious, contributing at a high rate of suicide cases.

It looks like the highest rate of addiction in Europe is presented by the people playing the following slot machines games (demos provided to us by Frank K. Martin):

1st place

Book of Ra – an egyptian based story with a lot of graphic colors and a golden book. The layout seems to be the cause of the highest rate of addiction.

2nd place

Sizzling Hot – in this case the burning sevens presented in the game sending a wrong signal to the brain.

3rd place

Pharaohs Gold II – the same strategy as with the slot game Book of Ra. Using egyptian stories it seems to be the best solution for this kind of industry.

People is still falling in the trap of gambling at slot machines.

In 2014 the number of people with slot machines addiction was higher with 1.8% than year 2013.
