Hing (2006) deﬁned problem gambling as “the situation when a person’s gambling activity gives rise to harm to the individual player, and/or to his or her family, and may extend into the community.” When a person with problem gambling wins, he/she will experience great enjoyment.

That is, the mental, physical and social health… was not different from that of individuals who were not addicted to video games...”.

It is hard to image anyone traveling a long distance for the opportunity to play a slot game; but high stakes poker or blackjack may attracts customers from around the world.
