The fastest growing form of gambling in the world is online gambling. That’s why many psychologists suggested the direction of research focused on this area. Some previous studies have suggested that individual psychological characteristics (including personality traits) may predispose certain individuals to overuse the Internet, and past research has chiefly examined the effects of anxiety, aggression, depression and self-consciousness on the level of Internet use so far. In this study we are trying to explore possible correlations and significant differences regarding aggression, anxiety, risk-taking game strategies, number of rounds played and if the player is winning or losing . We have discovered that all these dimensions are strongly interconnected and in further research we will try to explain all this in a clinical spotlight.
