Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine how two leisure constraints theory elements could be incorporated in Hagger's et al. (2006) synthesis of self-determination theory and the theory of planned behaviour. A hierarchical regression analysis was conducted where intention to casino gamble during the next six months was regressed on: first, relative autonomy; second, attitudes, subjective norm, and personal control, and third, anticipated constraints and anticipated constraint negotiation. Results suggest that inclusion of anticipated constraint negotiation significantly improved the regression model's predictive ability. Findings are discussed in regard to both "theory shyness" and "theory boldness".
