Only 1 in 10?sounds quite low.I think the bigger concern is more people spending a lot of money on purchases for games like candy crush to buy cheats etc which is probably worse than the typical gambler as those games are made to be addictive.
hell yeah, 1 in 10 is very very low IMO... I'd say at least 3 in 10 and we must know what age they consider as adult because in my country 18 yrs and you're an adult haha so need to know this detail...

Dont worry bro, the way the economy is going to tank, even more people then 3 in 10 will turn to fast money, first signs of economy going bad is number of people going up betting on sports, next indicator is selling of liquor going up and the services of night ladies going up, and the economy so far has been hanging on finger nails, but not for long, with the emigration now and couple of other thing, there is no way out for the economy to go up, except but down, so don't worry there will be a lot of fish on the poker tables

To people gambling as a social stimuli and a huge proportion of thiose can't actually afford to do so.
