Abstract

Drawing on recently conducted research exploring the gendered experiences of UK National Lottery play, this paper examines 'home' as a novel space for the pursuit of gambling. It seeks to re-clarify sociological notions of risk by considering some of the strategies for assessing and dealing with risk within the context of everyday routines of gambling practices.
