Abstract

Asian communities in New Zealand is growing rapidly, with Asian people now forming a significant part of the New Zealand population. Research suggests that Asian people have high levels of gambling participation. However, little is known about gambling practices and the potential for problem gambling among Chinese people living in New Zealand. People seeking counselling services for their gambling problems often say they use gambling as a form of release from stress. This paper assesses gambling participation and experiences among Chinese people working in food industry who comprise a particular group that is exposed to stress and the potential for problem gambling. The research draws on findings from a quantitative survey and follow up interviews with participants to document reasons for gambling among this group, the prevalence of problem/pathological gambling, and help seeking patterns.
