The Society For the Study of Gambling


The Society for the Study of Gambling was formed in 1977 to provide a forum for those concerned with research into gambling, to promote it's scientific study especially as far as the psychological, legal, social and economic aspects are concerned, and to inform and educate the public about these matters.

The Society holds two meetings a year which have, so far, always taken place in London. Meetings are held under The Chatham House Rule. Recent meetings have discussed the taxation of gambling, the control of gaming machines, the potential impact of Cable TV on gambling opportunities, current problems in the horserace betting market, greyhound racing and betting, the relationship between crime and gambling, and the implications of the Gambling Review recommendations.



Meetings are open to Members of the Society (Membership form) and to others who have a particular interest in a specific topic to be presented.

The next meeting of the Society (programme) will be held on Tuesday 14th May, 2002, at The Chancellor's Room, Hughes Parry Hall, University of London, 19/26 Cartwright Gardens, London WC1H 9HP.

The cost of the meeting is £15 for members, £20 for non-members, and a further £5 for a sandwich lunch. If you have not contacted the Treasurer before the meeting, please do so on arrival.



The Society produces one to two newsletters a year containing papers that have been presented at Society meetings, and other relevant information. You can find further information on the Newsletter page. You can obtain copies of the current Society for the Study of Gambling Newsletter using this form.
