The Swedish National Institute of Public Health conducted the survey of young men age 18-24.

"When we look at the evolution of different population groups, there are number of warning signs," said Marie Risbeck, FHI's coordinator gaming prevention, in a statement.

10 percent of this group, or around 450,000, are estimated to have gambled.

The study also found that a rather large proportion of those under the age of 18 have gambled even though it is illegal to do so.
