“Leveling Up” in How We Understand & Address the Convergence of Youth Gaming & Gambling

We have seen the convergence of video gaming and gambling for some time now, notably with things like loot boxes and social casino games. What is the latest research on convergence and trends, including the influence of COVID-19?   In this session, we will cover ground on key things you need to know, commonalities and differences between gaming and gambling disorder, and what we can do to help address –and leverage -- these increasingly important issues from prevention to treatment.


  • Name three specific trends that are contributing to the convergence of gaming and gambling
  • Identify five common risk factors between gaming and gambling disorders  
  • Describe at least three programmatic tools that can be used to address gaming and gambling with populations served.
