Abstract

Aims of the study

Part I – qualitative focus groups to find out:

  • How some of London adolescents view gambling following the significant expansion of perceived opportunities to gamble in UK since 2007
  • What they think gambling is and whether it differs from what law considers gambling to be
  • What they think about the similarities and differences between computer games and monetary forms of gambling and in particular whether they recognise gambling types activities within computer games; and
  • What they know about law relating to gambling and how, if at all, it influences their behaviour.
  • To identify the main theme for the quantitative survey that will constitute State II of this project.
