About this item

In the past two decades, gambling industries have experienced exponential growth with annual global expenditure worth approximately 300 billion dollars. Yet most academic research on gambling is concentrated on problem gambling and conducted within the psychological sciences. Nicoll considers gambling at a moment when its integration within everyday cultural spaces, moments, and products is unprecedented.

Gambling in Everyday Life aims to produce the first cultural study of gambling in everyday life, to develop critical and empirical methods adequate to such a study, and to make cultural studies of gambling accessible to an interdisciplinary and transnational readership by developing and applying Nicoll’s original concept of ‘finopower’ to understand ubiquitous moments, spaces and products of gambling. This book also contributes to the growing cultural studies literature on video and mobile gaming.
