Nine hundred and thirty two Chinese college students (aged from 18 to 25 years) in Hong Kong and Macao were surveyed. The findings generally support the efficacy of the TPB in explaining gambling intention and problems among Chinese college students. Specifically, the results of the path analysis indicate gambling intention and perceived control over gambling as the most proximal predictors of problem gambling, whereas attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived control, which are TPB components, influence gambling intention. Thus, these three TPB components should make up the core contents of the prevention and intervention efforts against problem gambling for Chinese college students. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.||Source Title:||Journal of Gambling Studies||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/124493||ISSN:||10505350||DOI:||10.1007/s10899-011-9250-4|
