Summary

This is a study of the extent of problem gambling among participants in short odds online gambling. Short odds gambling is characterized by the short time span between the consumer placing the bet and the outcome of the gamble being known. This type of gambling is known to be potentially associated with a relatively high level of risk of addiction. The study provides insights into the extent to which participants in online gambling show symptoms of gambling addiction, and consists of a panel study among participants in online gambling and a survey among therapists of problem gambling.
