"gambling Games among kids is declining, a new study shows. Half of all boys in the ninth grade stated in 2001 that they had played on the money the last 30 days. Now is the corresponding share of 9 per cent."
"the Study, carried out by the central Federation for alcohol and other drugs (CAN) since 2000, covering in principle all kinds of games where you bet money, such as poker, bingo, lotto and casino games."
"in Addition to niondeklassare participating since 2004, even students who are in second year of high school."
"Girls play less."
"The decline in gambling is also shown among the girls, but the difference is great between the sexes – it is more than seven times more prevalent for boys in grade 2 of high school to play for money when compared to girls of the same age. Total said 15 per cent of the surveyed boys in high school that they had gambled for money in the past 30 days."
"– It is one of the study's key conclusions: boys play in a much higher extent than girls. You see the same pattern even in the adult population and in international studies, says Johan Svensson, an investigator in the CAN."
"the Study also shows that it is more common to young looking to play outside the network."
" We can't say specifically what the overall decrease is due, but if you look at for example the Swedish Games, which have introduced age restrictions and in particular playing cards, so there is a lot that speaks for that it has become harder to play online."
"– Including those of other operators online requires, as a rule, you have to have a credit card and if you are under 18 years old you must have parents ' permission to obtain a credit card, which also makes it more difficult."
"It is clear that the likelihood of participating in gambling during the past year, increasing if the student also used regularly by alcohol or drugs."
