Background: Research on gambling behaviours among the Chinese, especially compared to Caucasians, is lacking.
Aims and Methods: Gambling behaviours and motivations between community-based Chinese (n = 199) and Caucasians (n = 306) living in Australia were compared.
Results: There were significant differences between Caucasians and Australian Chinese in relation to gambling behaviours and types of motivations that could predict problem gambling between the two groups.
Conclusions:
The findings provide relevant information in understanding gambling behaviours and motivations among the Chinese, as well as a step towards the development of tailored preventive and treatment interventions for problem gambling in this population.
