Is there a relationship between late night pokies and increased gambling addiction?

Individuals who are socially isolated or feeling lonely may be drawn to late-night gaming. People occasionally look for diversion, escape, or social connection in the late hours. It is possible for some people to use gambling to fill voids or combat feelings of loneliness. But using gaming as a coping method increases the risk of developing or worsening a gambling addiction. Compared to daytime gaming, late-night gambling may have a different vibe. A more intense gambling experience may result from the reduced lighting, more excitement, and potential for higher adrenaline rushes.
