This research report discusses African migrants' gambling in Finland by exploring cultural processes and hierarchies related to gambling. The ethnographic description relates gambling to culture, gambling behaviour (e.g. perceptions, attitudes, motivations, types of games engaged in) and social relations with other players, friends and family. There is a gendered nature to migrants' gambling alongside other demographic, social, economic and cultural characteristics. There are often contradictory perceptions and ambivalent attitudes towards it. The report concludes that knowing the gambling behaviour of migrants can help address specific needs of both majority and minority groups based on their respective cultural backgrounds.
