Demographics aside, the behavioral profile of the avid gambler is striking. An earlier report by the Federal Gambling Commission notes that gamblers “watch less television than people who are not into gambling, read more newspapers and magazines and about the same amount of books.” Inveterate gamblers go to the opera, lectures, museums, nightclubs, dances and movies pin up casino more often and are more involved in active sports. In addition, they spend more time with friends and relatives and participate more in social life. In other words, instead of shutting themselves off from civil society, the typical gambler, on the contrary, strives to join it with all his or her heart.
