Online Survey
 Each PPR survey is conducted using an online interview
administered initially to a random sample of individuals in each of
the countries covered by the study
 An email is sent to people selected at random inviting them to take
part in a “Sports and Leisure Survey” and providing a link to the
survey. They are asked about how often they participate in a number
of Sports and Leisure activities. Crucially when they choose to take
the survey they have no idea it’s going to be about Online Poker or
Other Online Gaming.
 Respondents who play (or are likely to start playing) Online Poker
for Money or Other Online Gaming For Money, at Least Once a
Month, are then taken to the full Online Poker / Other Online
Gaming Questionnaire.

Online Survey
 This methodology, though expensive, is really the only way to
ensure an accurate measurement of what is actually happening in
the real world.
 The results are not biased by having a disproportionate sample of
respondents who want to talk about Online Poker / Other Online
Gaming. Because respondents are not chosen through any other
connection to Poker or Online Gaming, i.e. through a Poker Website
or an Online Gaming Website, there is also no bias towards any of
the dimensions measured in the survey.
 The online Questionnaire is administered by Ocucom Corp using
state of the art user friendly software
