GRIFFITHS, M.D. and BINGHAM, D., 2005. A study of superstitious beliefs among bingo players. Journal of Gambling Issues (JGI) (13).Full text not available from this repository.
This study was conducted in order to examine the beliefs players have regarding superstition and luck and how these beliefs are related to their gambling behaviour. A self-completion questionnaire was devised and the study was carried out in a large bingo hall in Nottingham, over four nights. 412 “volunteer” bingo players completed the questionnaires. Significant relationships were found in many areas. Many players reported beliefs in luck and superstition; however, a greater percentage of players reported having “everyday” superstitious beliefs, rather than those concerned with bingo.
