    The intent of the study was to evaluate gambling among Icelandic university students. The relationship between problem gambling and gambling participation, in particular online gambling and poker participation were examined. Furthermore coping strategies and attitudes towards gambling among Icelandic university students were researched for a connection with gambling behavior. The survey was conducted in March 2010 with 1230 Icelandic university students participating. The average age of the sample was 29.63 years (SD = 8,48) with 33% (n = 408) male students and 67% (n = 816) female students. The sample was administered the PGSI, CISS and ATGS. Most of the students (78,4%) have gambled at least once in the past year. Prevalence of problem gambling among the sample was 0,4% and moderate risk gambling 1,9%. Students who gambled both online and on terrestrial venues were more likely to be problem gamblers than participants who played exclusively on land-based venues. Poker players were more likely to have gambling problems than students who did not play poker. Coping strategies had no connection to gambling behavior. Attitudes towards gambling were significantly more positive among problematic gamblers and students who played more frequently than among other students.
