Scientists from two research universities in Australia conducted research, during which it was possible to establish gender characteristics of the reaction of problem slot machine players to stress.
The University of Adelaide, in conjunction with the University of Shvinsburn, conducted an experiment that compared the response of 580 men and 605 women who played on one-armed bandits during a long period of losses.
Ludomans of both sexes often ask about the possibility of playing on credit. But men more often than women try to hide the visit of gambling establishments from family and friends.
Researchers hope that their work will help identify pre-problem players. And also advise the staff to be better prepared for interventions and countering addiction in the players.
