This study described the gambling behavior and the prevalence of problem and pathological gambling among casino employees. Casino employees (N = 271) from a local Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada completed self-report questionnaires, which included The South Oaks Gambling Screen (Lesieur and Bloom, 1987), as well as some additional questions specific to casino employees, their work environment, and their gambling behavior. The rate of pathological gambling among the sample was 20.3%. Despite no gender differences with regard to gambling pathology, males and females differed in rate of play, amount of money wagered, and types of casino games played. Additionally, a number of other characteristics of casino employee gamblers were assessed, including various environmental factors and their impact on the gambling behavior of casino employees.
