A new research study being conducted at the University of Lincoln is looking for participants that have committed a crime as a result of gambling to take part in research interviews.

This research will be reviewed as part of the Howard League for Penal Reform’s Commission on Crime and Problem Gambling. The research will aim to highlight the relationship between gambling and crime through in-depth qualitative research, mapping issues such as:

  • How people first engage with gambling
  • What types of gambling they partake in
  • How gambling escalates and when and how it results in the committing of crime
  • How it affects key relationships such as employment, social and familial networks
