Le tilt au poker en ligne : description, mesure et lien avec le jeu excessif

Abstract : Study 1: A total of 16 relevant studies were identified. Several factors predicting excessive gambling were identified (stress, internal attribution, dissociation, boredom, negative emotions, irrational beliefs, anxiety and impulsivity). Finally the validity of the tools used to measure excessive or problematic gambling and irrational belief are not suitable for online poker. Study 2: The Tilt would be related to both loss of control and negative emotions (e.g. anger, frustration) and associated to dissociative experiences but transitive ones. The Tilt, as a result of intern and extern events, would impact behavioral, cognitive and emotional process. Study 3: The OPTS, a 17-item self-report questionnaire, measures the frequency of Tilt episodes associated with online poker. Items were created based on the literature and 10 semi-structured interviews conducted on 10 online poker players. The scale is composed of 2 factors, namely “emotional and behavioral Tilt” and “cognitive Tilt”. Study 4: Our findings evidenced that frequency of Tilt episodes is a significant predictor of excessive online poker gambling. As far as frequency of Tilt episode is concerned, irrational beliefs such as “incapacity of preventing to play” and “positive interpretation for paying” would be predictors. As a consequence, the Tilt and irrational beliefs are strongly associated with excessive online poker gambling.
