No matter how far you go back in human history, remnants show that gambling groups have come together, and gambling games are taking place. In digital children games, gambling will and albeit somehow, by paying different costs. Because technology has become an integral part of our lives and the age of using technology has dropped until the preschool age. This may raise concern in terms of gambling, although not for every digital game. With this article, the reason for the danger in digital children's games, the proportion of existing digital games with computer addiction, not by directly targeting the names and brands, was investigated. Because the danger of gambling can occur in any game, in any way, and at unexpected costs.
