Abstract: A total of 293 college students completed a survey about binge drinking and gambling activities. Students who played the lottery once a week had lower binge drinking scores compared to students who played the lottery more than once a week and those students who never played the lottery. Similar patterns were also detected for students who engaged in sports-betting, card-playing, and games of skill. Students who met the criteria for binge drinking were likely to engage in sports-betting, video and regular poker, internet, office pools, and other games of skill compared to students who did not meet the criteria for binge drinking.
