Abstract

Gambling is increasingly recognised as a public health problem. While only a minority of gamblers develop gambling problems, the financial, health and social harms associated with gambling can extend beyond the gambler to impact families, communities and wider society. Understanding the nature of gambling harms, the populations at risk and impacts of policy options can support effective practice to prevent gambling harms in Wales.
