Predisposing Factors

The National Opinion Research Center (NGISC, 1999) reviewed the available literature on problem gambling and concluded that the following are major predisposing factors to the development of a gambling problem:

• Problem gambling often occurs jointly with substance abuse, mood disorders, and personality disorders.

• Pathological gamblers more often than non-pathological gamblers report having a parent who is a pathological gambler.

• The earlier gambling starts, the more likely pathological gambling will occur.
