  • Dice have symbols and not numbers because the practice is so old it precedes writing!Gambling Fruit machines originally didn’t output money. They output prizes because gambling was illegal.
  • Oregon Lottery 2009: $1.24 billion (Oregon Lottery, 2009)Oregonians spent $1.6 billion on all forms of gambling in 2007 (EcoNW, 2007)Lane County citizens spent an average of $330 per capita on lottery games in 2009 (Oregon Health Authority, 2010)About $7 out of every $10 was spent on video lottery games (video poker & slots)

  • 2012 SWS
  • This is the first in a series of slides which graphically illustrates why youth gambling needs to be given more attention, and why it should be included in prevention efforts aimed at other risk behaviors. Youth who gamble have much higher rates of alcohol use than those who do not gamble. These correlations have held consistent over the past several years of data collection, regardless of the particular survey used, and are also consistent with data on the national level.
  • Again, youth who gamble had much higher rates of binge drinking in the past 30 days than youth who did not gamble. We know there is not a direct cause-and-effect relationship here (ie gambling does not cause binge drinking, nor vice versa), but there is a very strong correlation. So if we want to address binge drinking and we ignore gambling, we are missing the boat on really helping kids.
  • Here we see the same pattern with youth gambling and smoking…..
  • And a similar pattern with youth gambling and marijuana use….
  • And a similar pattern with youth gambling and skipping school…
  • Youth who reported gambling more than they wanted to (a possible sign of a gambling problem) also reported higher rates of having attempted suicide in the past year than students who did not bet more than they wanted to.
  • Clearly, then, youth gambling must be addressed in the context of how it exists in the lives of youth—one of several possible risky behaviors they may try, which can lead to serious problems. The difference is that, in real life, youth gambling is the one that is routinely left off of this diagram. We need to change that for the sake of our kids, who are the first generation to grow up with gambling being the norm, being easily accessible and available, being shown as glamorous and not being discussed enough by parents and other authority figures.
  • Paid through Lottery fundsGambling Evaluation and Reduction Program (GEAR)Corrections Program27 outpatient treatment centers (Emergence Program in Lane County)3 crisis-respite programs1 residential treatment program
  • Of those enrolling, 87% report machine gambling as their primary choice and 74% report gambling at an Oregon retailer.Based on projections made by R. Volberg where approximately 3% of those with gambling problems should be expected to access treatment.
  • Successful completers = $3,224 per casehttp://www.problemgamblingprevention.org/docs/2011-Oregon-Problem-Gambling-Data-Book-Data-Brief.pdfUnless otherwise noted this data comes from the 2011 Gambling Programs Evaluation Update (T. Moore)
  • We need to share our data and show parents that they need to talk about this issue with their kids. We have many resources available to help them with that, as well as resources to help someone who has a gambling problem: calling 1-877-mylimit or going to 1877mylimit.org is the first step
  • “Every 15 minutes” / Grim Reaper“Scared Straight”“Just say no”All may have a temporary influence, and are quite powerful…. But are not shown to change behavior over time.
