Teenage Poker Players: an Analysis of Impulsivity, Gambling-Related Cognitions, and Comorbidity

Gambling on poker has become the favourite pastime of millions of young people the world over. However, despite poker’s ubiquitous presence, online and off, little is known about poker participation among youth from a consumer behaviour perspective. The aim of the paper is to establish general gambling participation and poker participation prevalence among teenagers in Australia; assess how poker players differ from the general population and other gamblers on the impulsivity sensation-seeking scale; assess gambling-related cognitions among poker players and other gamblers; and assess the extent of comorbidity in gambling and consumption of alcohol, nicotine, and recreational drugs.
