Abstract

Forty-six papers on culture and gambling include many that advance the use of the culture concept in gambling studies. Some authors implicitly equate "culture" with minority group status, multi-ethnicity, and non-mainstream status. This review summarizes eight papers that offer original approaches to understanding gambling through the concept of culture.
