Abstract

Background:

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

Methods:

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

Results:

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.

Conclusions:

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