Authors: Ocean, Grant
Keywords: Problem gambling--Canada;Casinos--Canada;Gambling--Social issues
Issue Date: 1995
Publisher: University of Alberta
Abstract: A theoretical model of gambling behavior examining the relationships between regular gamblers, the gambling institution, and the outside society is proposed and assessed, in this study. This model is based on findings from a participant observation study conducted in a Canadian urban casino, a review of the related literature, and interviews with regular casino players. The intent of this investigation is to explore the structural and cultural factors operating both in society at large and in a particular gambling institution, and connect them with the personal characteristics of avid regular gamblers.
