Children and young people's gambling: Research review
G. Valentine

This review summarises international evidence about children and young people’s participation in different types of gambling activities, their motivations to gamble, and the effects this gambling
may have on them. In adopting an international perspective this review focuses on specific comparable international jurisdictions, namely: North America, Australia, New Zealand and the
Nordic countries. This is because there is less available evidence about approaches to problem gambling from other cultural contexts, and because these identified international contexts are
those most culturally similar to the UK (Abbot et al. 2004).
