Luke Clark discusses the new UBC Centre for Gambling Research

Gambling addiction is nothing new. Research in the area, however, is something that’s recently expanded here at UBC.

We know that gambling has been practiced throughout different cultures for many years, and that people often become addicted to it.  Even though gamblers know the odds are stacked against them, they still gamble anyway. But why? Luke Clark, Director of the Centre for Gambling Research, joins Ira on UBC Arts on Air to address that question. He also discusses the new gambling research centre, his interest in the topic and the importance of facilitating more gambling research in British Columbia.
