The gambling industry trade association, the Betting and Gaming Council61 (BGC), emphasised that research has found “not only higher levels of well- being among recreational gamblers than non-gamblers, but also found that well-being increased with gambling engagement”62 except in those instances where problem gambling occurred. It also referred to research which indicates that gambling can involve a range of additional benefits, such as opportunities for social engagement and increases in mental acuity The BGC also quoted research by Professor David Forrest, Professor of Economics at the University of Liverpool Management School, which states: “interaction with others is widely regarded in the psychology literature as important to a feeling of satisfaction with life. Much gambling takes place in social settings. The bingo hall can provide its patrons with a sense of camaraderie. Casino players appear to value social contact with dealers and other players.”
