A Profile of Gamblers

By G.A. Brenner and R. Brenner

Abstract

This Study Presents Both a Comprehensive Survey Jof the Empirical Literature on Gambling and Our Most Recent Research Based on Data Provided by Both Loto-Quebec and Statistics Canada. in Spite of All the Excitement Surrounding the Subject, the Typical Gambler Emerges with the Relatively Boring Image of a Regular, Relatively Lower Paid Blue Or White Collar Worker, Whose Career Stalled, Who Is Relatively Older and Has More Children Than the Rest of the Population. But He Is Not Criminal and Does Not Spend Recklessly. the Game Gives Him Hope, Type of Hope That No Other Existing Spending Opportunities Can Provide. the Study Also Reveals That People Do Not Tell the Truth About Their Spendings on Games of Chance.Games ; Demogray ; Sociology ; Risk
