The journal publishes articles on a wide variety of issues of relevance to the broad subject area, and topics of current debate.

Tom Chalmers, Managing Director of Legend Times, parent company of UBP, commented: “This journal was designed to provide an outlet for academics and practitioners who have an interest in the economic and business aspects of the rapidly growing international gambling market and it continues to go from strength to strength.

“The addition of Levi as Associate Editor and the expansion of the Editorial Board will add a new dimension to the journal going forward and is the perfect springboard to address even more prominent issues in the gambling community from an international perspective and further extend its ever-growing readership.”
