Scottish Children Attracted To Serious Gambling

Researchers from Glasgow Caledonian University have found that almost one in 10 Scottish children have a gambling problem. They conducted a survey of more than 2,000 students studying //in west-central Scotland and discovered that almost 9 percent of children aged between 13-16 demonstrated behaviors that could lead to gambling addiction later in life.

In the age group of 11-12 years, 6 percent of the children had a problem, researchers said. Scotland permits low-payout underage gambling using slot machines. Researchers say that these machines are similar to the high-payout machines.

That is why teenagers start to gamble seriously with money. Gambling counselors said that the survey showed that it was necessary to include lessons on the dangers of gambling in schools. "Gambling in children is not obvious, like smoking, drinking or physical abuse, but it is there," counselor Sousana Mesimeri was quoted by the Scotsman newspaper. "Advice on gambling needs to be part of the school curriculum."
