Abstract

This is the second report of a three stage project examining the gaming machine playing behaviour of members of certain Sydney registered clubs. This report compares the social, demographic, cultural and linguistic characteristics of a random sample of gaming machine playing members of some of the largest registered clubs in Sydney. Further, it compares the characteristics of these members with profiles of people with gambling problems as identified in previous research. The other reports from this project are Evaluating the Current and Future Adequacy of Services for Problem Gamblers in Sydney and Socio-Demographic Characteristics of Resident Populations Supporting Poker Machine Playing in Sydney’s Registered Clubs.
