The ‘playas’ are eight of Snoop’s closest gaming friends competing to be crowned the Top Dogg of the GGL and win a share of the $11,000 pot. There will also be a bonus round giving the champ a chance to increase his winnings if he can beat the Boss Dogg.

The first in the series of live esports tournaments will be broadcasted live on multiple Snoop and MERRY JANE platforms, including Mixer, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook on Thursday, March 14, 2019 starting at 5PM PT (8PM ET).

Featuring hilarious commentary from Snoop and Dan, beautiful women cheering on the players, and plenty of the sticky icky…the GGL will be the dankest live gaming tournament ever to go down on the Internet.

Studies find links between loot box spending and problem gambling

Studies find links between loot box spending and problem gamblingReading Time: 2 minutes

 

New research has proved that there is a strong link between problematic gambling behaviours and spending money on loot boxes.

The results of the research are published in the journal PLOS One as two studies. The results indicate that people who spend more money on loot boxes are also more likely to be unable to keep their gambling habits in check.

“Loot boxes are extremely widespread. A recent analysis we did showed that they may feature in as many as 63% of mobile games. They’re extremely profitable, too: They’re estimated to have perhaps generated as much as $30 billion in revenue in 2018,” said study author David Zendle of York St. John University.

“They’re also highly worrying — there are clear parallels between loot boxes and potentially harmful activities like gambling. Given their prevalence, importance, and the lack of literature on them, I think a good question is ‘Why weren’t more people running these studies?’”

The researchers had 1172 gamers complete psychological surveys regarding problem gambling and loot box spending.

The participants all reported regularly playing at least of one of ten popular games that feature loot boxes: Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, League of Legends, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Counter-Strike: GO, FIFA 18, Rocket League, DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

“There is a link between loot box spending and problem gambling. However, we’re not sure if this means that loot boxes literally cause problem gambling, or if it means that people who are already problem gamblers spend significantly more money on loot boxes. In either case, though, it doesn’t look socially beneficial.”

On average, the participants reported spending $19.58 on loot boxes in the past month. But some had spent up to $2300.

The study replicates the finding of previous research conducted by Zendle and published in 2018. That study, which examined 7422 gamers, found that people with more severe gambling problems tended to spend more on loot boxes.

NESN starts telecast of sports-gambling showReading Time: 1 minute

 

NESN, the television home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox, and VSiN (Vegas Stats & Information Network), started the telecast of VSiN’s Follow the Money morning show on March 18. It will be shown on NESNplus every weekday morning from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET.

Follow the Money, a three-hour show offering valuable betting information, with a lace of humour and entertainment, is hosted by Mitch Moss and Paul Howard.

“NESN has long been a leader in regional sports television, and there is no better partner to reach sports fans throughout New England,” said Brian Musburger, founder and CEO of VSiN. “As regulated sports betting expands across the country, VSiN will continue to partner with innovators like NESN to help inform the rapidly growing number of Americans wagering on sports.”

In the coming days, the show will include expert insight and analysis around March Madness, the annual NCAA basketball tournament which got underway on Tuesday.

“Sports-wagering regulations are changing quickly and with these changes, we anticipate an increased interest in obtaining relevant and reliable sports information,” said Rick Jaffe, NESN’s vice president of programming and production. “VSiN has both the experience and expertise to deliver the most up-to-date gaming data and analytics to New England’s sports fans.”
