Abstract

Lo studio indaga le credenze manifestate dai giocatori d’azzardo con specifico riferimento al conteso italiano. È stata impiegata una tecnica di ricerca qualitativa. In particolare, sono stati realizzati tre focus group con giocatori abituali o occasionali di diverse tipologie di giochi. I risultati hanno confermato che il comportamento di gioco è influenzato da una molteplicità di distorsioni cognitive, già documentate dalla letteratura ma la cui manifestazione risente dell’humus culturale in sono immersi i giocatori: fallacia di Montecarlo, illusione di controllo, credenza nella fortuna, nella superstizione e nella provvidenza. Emerge, inoltre, una chiara distorsione cognitiva nella ragione per cui i giocatori tendono a rigiocare, in tutto o in parte, il denaro vinto. Essendo inaspettato, esso è percepito come un surplus rispetto a quello guadagnato con il proprio lavoro e, perciò, soggetto ad un maggiore grado di rischio. Si tratta di un aspetto mai evidenziato prima dalla letteratura sul tema.
