Abstract

Background music can influence everyday behaviour. We examined the influence of music tempo and genre on roulette. Fast tempo and popular music resulted in quicker betting with no effect on expenditure. Subjective arousal did not mediate music tempo's effects. Alternative mechanisms underlying music's influence on gambling and directions for future research are considered.
