In Austria, under the current gambling monopoly, numerous types of gambling are legally offered and regulated by the federal government or the provinces according to the respective legal provisions. In order to prevent pathological, addictive gambling behaviour, gambling operators are obliged to comply with minimum standards of player protection. This project investigates the possibilities of recognising patterns from the data collected from gaming machines that make it possible to determine whether legal requirements such as the maximum playing time are checked and what insights can be gained from further interaction patterns. This project was funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance.
