Digital Gambling : Theorizing Gamble-Play Media, Hardback Book

Description

This book develops the concept of "gamble-play media", describing how some gambling and gambling-like practices are increasingly mediated by digital technologies.

Digital gambling brings gambling closer to the practices and features of videogames, as audio-visual simulations structure users' experiences.

By studying digital gambling from media studies, videogame and cultural studies approaches, this book offers a new critical perspective on the issues raised by computer-mediated gambling, while expanding our perspective on what media and gambling are.

In particular, it critically analyses terrestrial, mobile and online slot machines, online poker and stock trading apps through a selection of case studies.
