How do signs of problem gambling differ in men and women?
New study shows male gamblers behave aggressively whereas female gamblers react emotionally 

Delfabbro, P., Thomas, A., & Armstrong, A. (2017)

Men and women experiencing problems with gaming machines (slot machines) display the same signs that their habit is out of control. However, the two sexes differ in how they handle the distress that accompanies their addiction. Women tend to be more emotional and more likely to cry or to look depressed when losing. Men may angrily channel their distress into striking or even kicking their gaming machine. These are the findings of researchers at the University of Adelaide, the Australian Gambling Research Centre (AGRC) and Swinburne University of Technology in Australia.
The study is published in Springer's Journal of Gambling Studies. For more information click here
