Abstract

The consideration of gambling as a decision-making disorder may fail to explain why the majority of people gamble, yet only a small percentage of people lose control of their behaviour to the point where their gambling becomes problematic. The application of dual process theories to gambling addiction offers a means of explaining the differences between "normal" and "problem" gambling, augmenting the multiple vulnerabilities proposed by Redish et al.
