Motivation in gambling activities among French gamblers

Abstract

Gambling motivation is a variable that influences and determines the involvement in gambling activities. The aim of this research is to highlight the motivations among gamblers and a comparison of motivation among recreational and at-risk gamblers. Our data collection was conducted among 283 gamblers recruited in the French gambling operators (Francaise des Jeux and Pari Mutuel Urbain) and in stations of the Paris region. The results show that the participants gamble for winning money, get your mind off, relax, because the friends/colleagues do the same thing, out of boredom, to unwind, with significant differences between recreational and at-risk gamblers.
