Mobile gambling: Any time, any place, anywhere?



Over the years it's become clear that online poker psychology differs from bricks and mortar casino play in that, cloaked by the anonymity of playing at home, people are far more inclined to take risks that they might otherwise have been averse to in a 'live' game as it would mean a table full of people staring at them for their stupidity.

There's also a tendency when gambling online at home to be impatient if we have only a limited amount of time to play - the restrictive feeling of our window of opportunity about to close 'too soon' renders decision making potentially reckless, and this situation is best avoided. Both these scenarios are pretty much appreciated today and thus aren't really a problem.

Now new research, carried out by Dr. Sally Gainsbury at Southern Cross University, has turned to those of us who gamble online using mobile devices. Perhaps not too surprisingly, it would appear that the liberating convenience of being able to place bets or play casino games, poker and so on just about anywhere, whenever we feel like it, can induce greater risk taking than would be the case with traditional, casino visitors, for instance.

Many people nowadays can barely function without their mobiles, which they carry round with them at all times - commuting, in pubs and restaurants, at work and even at home; the mobile has become almost an extra limb that as well as providing communication presents us with a practically permanent facility to gamble. As Dr Gainsbury says: '...people look at their mobile first thing in the morning and last thing at night, take it to the bathroom.'

So let's not gamble on our mobiles in the bathroom...
