What does economics teach us about the regulation of machine gambling?

Abstract

This paper explores the role that economic theory can play in assisting the design of regulations to govern access to gambling machines. Existing literature is reviewed to examine how far economics can assist in regulatory design. Existing controls on machine gambling are described and compared. A simple model of machine gambling is presented and used to predict the likely relative effectiveness of the various types of regulation that are in use.
