The changing face of gambling: The Gambling Act (2005) and working class gambling cultures

Abstract

Gives an interim status update on research on the changing working class gambling cultures. Aims to establish whether culturally specific understandings of gambling have firm foundations in the past, using a range of primary sources. Assesses whether the working classes who gamble in the 21st century continue to have culturally specific understandings about gambling that may be radically different to those of policy makers, gambling providers, support agencies and educators. Considers how knowledge of these understandings of gambling, money, luck and risk can assist in tailoring services to fit actual needs.
