A Piece of the action (11 Jul 2004)


Since the legalization of soccer betting in August 2003, millions of dollars have been wagered through this legal channel. Chung Kim-wah (Assistant Professor, Applied Social Sciences, Hong Kong Polytechnic University) criticizes the Jockey Club for adopting measures not to discourage illegal betting, but rather, to attract gamblers to bet with the Jockey Club. The only two centers that provide problem gambling couselling services have been flooded with demand for service while more youngsters and students are engaging in soccer betting. A problem gambler tells why he cannot kick the habit and a counselor explains the cause of gambling addiction.
