Over the past few years the sharp growth of Chinese international students attending educational institutions in New Zealand is of significance. Research suggests that young Asian international students have high levels of gambling participation and are at risk to problem gambling. However, little is known about gambling practices and the potential for problem gambling among Chinese international students in New Zealand. This paper assesses gambling participation and experiences among Chinese international students and the potential for problem gambling. The research draws on findings from in-depth interviews with participants to explore studying experiences of Chinese international students who gamble in the past twelve months in New Zealand, to identify the fundamental causes of these Chinese students' dissatisfaction with their experience in New Zealand, to explore how these Chinese students come to be involved with gambling and how they maintain their gambling activities, to discuss what advice they have for those who might wish to change their gambling; and to propose intervention to Chinese students' gambling issues and gambling related issues identified by the research.
