The article “A study of adaptive gambling behaviors of visitors from Mainland China to Macau” jointed by Zhonglu Zeng, Xing Wang and IpKin Anthony Wong has been published in Asian Education and Development Studies, Vol.11 Issue 3(Scopus).

    The adaptation hypothesis suggests that gambling participation would gradually decline after an initial exposure to this activity. While this hypothesis was tested in pathological gambling among residents in Western countries, the present inquiry explores the hypothesis in a tourism context.

    By assessing changes of the Mainland Chinese gambling perceptions (e.g. excitement and fallacy) and behaviors, results point to visitor gamblers' decrease in gambling excitement and fallacy as well as budget to income ratio.
