Gambling is a form of behaviour that has been identify to have serious consequences on gamblers health, study-habit, academic performance, and has been reported to be related to some criminal related behaviour. This project examines the prevalence and determinant of gambling behaviour among undergraduate students of Federal University Oye Ekiti. In executing this research, social learning theory of gambling was adopted, which postulate that gambling as a form of behaviour is highly subjected to reinforcement and reward. The method of analysis adopted for this study is the frequency and percentages under the univariate level of analysis, and chi- square analysis under the bivariate level of analysis to analyzing the quantitative data that were obtain from the field. The sample for the study consists of one-hundred and twenty undergraduate of FUOYE Students. One hundred and twenty (120) respondents were selected in order to have a quantifiable representation of the students i.e. 5% of the total population. The study found out that 67.5% of Federal University Oye Ekiti student engage in gambling activities, in which 82.7% of them are male and 14.3% are female. Majority of the respondents who ever gambled reported that the engage in such activities because they needed money. Despite the fact that some of these students come from a rich home and well educated parents, they still needed more money than their regular allowances. The studies thereby suggests that the university, through its entrepreneurial center should empower student, vocational training with the aim of profit making and then organize an orientation on peer influence.
