WHY TALK ABOUT GAMBLING AND YOUTH
Youth have access to gambling* even though they may not be of legal age** to gamble. This may include placing a
bet on a dare/challenge, playing for keeps or participating in sports pools among friends. Some arcade games such
as single-play claw-machines youth participate in are forms of gambling. Youth are also exposed to gambling
through advertisements. Online gambling is available 24/7 on mobile devices 1 and youth can often get around age
verification or access unregulated online gambling. Gambling is also incorporated in games youth play including
opening loot boxes or card packs in video games.

WHY AND HOW ARE YOUTH GAMBLING?
Youth may participate in gambling for fun, to win a prize or money, to socialize, to relieve boredom, to cope with
stress or as a form of escape. 2
14.8% of Ontario teens gamble online (i.e. gaming, online poker, online sports betting, etc.). 44.5% gamble in any
form (i.e. betting on a dare with friends, playing claw machines, etc.). 11.7% report betting virtual credits on video
games.3
