Gambling and gambling: There are 1.3 million gamblers at high risk

What's the point? These are the games that involve money and chance. The OFDT states that all these games are subject to a legal offer. This legal offer is available to adults through a physical sale network or on the Internet (except for slots machines and casino games). These games are subject to regulation under the regulation gambling and gambling. However, other games that have stakes or winnings may be played outside of the legal framework such as board, card, darts, petanque and darts.

What are the numbers? The numbers are telling us that 47.2% (18-25 years old) played a game of chance or money in 2019, compared to 44.2% for women and 50.4% for men. The most popular form of gambling is draw games (30.7%), followed closely by scratch games (26.9%), and sports betting (5.2%). Nearly a third of adults gamble at least once per week. Nearly 4 out 10 teenagers under the age of 17 report that they gamble. They are banned in theory.

It's serious. According to the OFDT, 1.3 million gamblers are at high risk for problematic gambling, with 300,000. At 66%, men are overrepresented. 2300 people received care in the addiction support and prevention center (CSAPA) in 2019, with 80% of them being men. In recent years, there has been a decline in the number of consumers. This decline can be seen in all types of games, "with the exception that sports betting continues to grow." However, players' practices are more intense: According to activity data from operators, "French gaming spending increased 12.5% between 2014 and 2019".

What are the "problem gamblers?" In its 2019 note ndeg12 "Problems related gambling in France", the ODFT presents a picture of these people. Accordingly, "all things being equal", a young man with little education significantly increases his chances of becoming a problem gambler. Problem gambling is also a risk factor for those who gamble on horse or sports, as well as slot machines, casino games, and other forms of gambling. Gambling on the Internet, however, "doesn't increase the likelihood of problem gambling".

Notice: If you or a relative are involved in these practices, please go to the players'-info-service website to find addresses for reception and treatment centers across France.
