Young people and fruit machine gambling

(p.285) 12 Young people and fruit machine gambling

This chapter discusses the result of studies which investigated fruit machine gambling among young people in Great Britain. The findings reveal that a small but hardly negligible proportion of young people gamble regularly on fruit machines and that expenditure appears to be related to frequency of play. The result also highlights a number of other variables associated with the frequency of fruit machine playing in young people including gender and social class.

Keywords:   fruit machine gambling, young people, Great Britain, gender, social class
