Abstract or description

Gambling addiction is internationally acknowledged as a behaviour
addiction in leading mental health assessment tools, such as the
DSM-5 and WHO ICD. Both assessments recognise gambling
addiction has similar cognitive impacts to substance misuse
addiction. When people chase gambling losses by gambling
further, it is understood their cognitive processing has been
impaired (Smith and Simpson, 2014). There is growing scientific
evidence to suggest that brain chemistry alters, and this is when
crime is more likely.
