The purpose of this study is to investigate the mediating effect of monetary and non-monetary motivations between daily stress and gambling addiction.


For this purpose, a questionnaire survey was conducted on 480 volunteers in S-area, and analyzed by structural equation model (SEM).


The results showed that daily stress and gambling addiction were significantly predicted. Monetary and non-monetary motivations showed a statistically significant correlation with gambling addiction, and as monetary motivation increased, the gambling addiction became stronger. However, in the mediating factors, monetary and non-monetary motivations’ effects were not statistically significant. In other words, when exposed to daily stress, gambling addiction appears regardless of any motivations.


Based on the results of this study, social welfare practice and policy suggestions for prevention and improvement of gambling addicts’ were presented.
