Abstract: This paper addresses the issue of whether young adults who are in school and those who are not schooling showed differences in their gambling behaviors. Based on the intentioned behavior theory of gambling, gambling behaviors are predictable by attitudes towards gambling. It was hypothesized that young adults who are not schooling will show more accepting attitudes toward gambling and therefore higher frequency of gambling and produce more negative gambling consequences. These hypotheses were supported by using the Singapore Youth Gambling Scale (SYGS) (Chang, 2009). Participants aged 18 to 25 years old took part in this study and answered a questionnaire which was adapted from Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS) and SYGS.
