Titel: An empirical study of sex differences in gaming machine play among club members

Inhoud: This paper helps address a deficiency of gender specific research into gambling. Using predominantly non-parametric tests, the paper analyses data from 1,257 female and 1,743 male respondents in a telephone survey of 3,000 members selected randomly from six large Sydney clubs. The results support female gambling stereotypes of lower individual bets and lower overall expenditure, but not of lower participation and frequency of play, and shorter duration of gambling sessions. Further, regular female gaming machine players appear more likely than non-regular female players to be migrants, either young or old, and from lower socio-economic groups. Regular female gaming machine players also appear to forgo the social side of playing machines, to spend more overall and to be more at risk of problem gambling than non-regular female players. Finally, the distinguishing socio-demographic characteristics and machine playing behaviours of regular male gaming machine players are very similar to those for regular female gaming machine players.
