Abstract: Although researchers have explored relationships of gambling to crime and problem gambling rates among offenders, surprisingly there has been very little study of gambling that occurs within correctional environments. In other words, research on offender gambling has focused almost solely on behaviors prior to incarceration. Gambling within jails and prisons is difficult to study because of its prohibition and offenders may fear the implications or consequences of disclosing such information.
