The study will examine the beliefs, and feeling about gaming, on the female prospects. In the past these researches were on male perspectives, and today are on the women’s side of things.
Since there have been more women included in these studies, conclusions can be better examine the feelings of gambling to this gender. So far, conclusions have been generalized to all women gamblers. Only in a small amount of the studies were where gender related findings had not been reported. Research on internet gambling, the most popular way to play nowadays, is nearly nonexistent.
