Neigiamos azartinių lošimų įtakos visuomenei šalinimo teisinės problemos.
Legal regulation of the games of chance is quite new in the Republic of Lithuania. The first law that legalized games of chance and set the rules of this kind of business was enacted only in 2001. However, experience nowadays shows that Lithuanian nation more often began to face social problems arising from the dependence of people on the games of chance, their morbid urge to play these games. Naturally one may become concerned, whether the Law of the games of chance of the Republic of Lithuania ensures sufficient protection against the development of the dependence on the games of chance and sets forth adequate means of certain prevention. Aiming to reveal the chosen hypothesis, possible reasons and premises of the dependence on the games of chance are analyzed in this article. All these reasons were brought into three groups of biological, psychological and social factors. Many scientists at one associate biological factors of dependence with two major areas: genetics and neurology. Genetic reasons stimulate heritable dependence upon the games of chance. What regards neurology, these premises of dependence upon gambling are most often related with human hormone disorders, particularly with neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine).
