Abstract

This project examined the relationship between decisions individuals make in a gambling context and those they make in an insurance context. Data were collected from an online survey covering two gambling and two insurance scenarios. Results indicate that people do not view gambling risks in the same way they view insurance risks, and that gender is a significant predictor of an individual's tendency to accept or avoid risk.
