Wikipedia:WikiProject Gambling

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to gambling and the gaming industry. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and Wikipedia:WikiProject/Best practices.


To provide a place for editors interested in editing gambling related articles to discuss issues related to those articles, to encourage editors to improve these articles and to organize collaboration on these articles. This includes working to standardize the use of terms and phrases in the various articles.

The project is interested in the following areas:

  • The practice of gambling
  • Companies in the gaming industry
  • Games of chance
  • Gaming devices
