The past decade has seen considerable growth in the number of Chinese international students attending New Zealand educational institutions. Research suggests that young Chinese international students have high levels of gambling and are at risk to problem gambling. However, little is known about gambling practices and the potential for problem gambling among this population. This paper presents initial findings from research into Chinese international student’s gambling histories, self-regulatory practices, the implications of gambling, and strategies for change.
