OUR player behavior quiz

This one-of-a-kind Quiz is based on our personal experiences as regular players of Vlt and slot machines and on our extensive research. Our purpose for offering this quiz is to help other players learn more about themselves and the machines they are playing as entertainment in hopes that it prevents them from going through the horrific experience we went through.   

If you are a regular player of these machines, completing this quiz may save you tens of thousands of dollars, years of stress and depression and possibly your life! The only person who sees your answers is YOU, unless you decide to share them with someone else. The more honest you are when answering these questions, the more accurate your results will be!
