The Most Gambling-Addicted US States

Tags: problem gambling, USA
Posted on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 by "T".
The Kentucky Derby 2016 just took place this weekend at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky. It was a huge annual event for horse lovers, but obviously, it was an event for gamblers as well. With that said, let's take a look at a new study conducted by WalletHub, a personal finance website, that tells us which states have the most-addicted gamblers and why.

One would think that almost all flyover countries would heavily invest into gambling friendly enviroments (indian casinos etc.) since they have nothing else to show really, but this list have states from West, East, South, MidWest and North - so basicaly covering the US as a whole.
Meaning gambling is popular everywhere in the USA, especially where is legal.

well i suppose that nearness of your home to a casino does make one a bigger degen. all those great shows, flashing boobs visible right through the windows of your house, the lure of millions so close to your home... i guess there is a downside too- you get to see all the dudes who won, but been kicked in the head several times by casino security personnel and their winnings taken away for "suspected breaches of casino rules".

If you are banned from casino, its not for being lucky.
Cardcounting, late bets, cardswitching are usually involved. Or you really think casino just takes away your winnings and security guys beat you up for nothing - that doesnt happen even in the movies.

Does anyone really spend time and money trying to assess which states or people are more addicted to gambling than others? Having achieved this spectacle of greatness, what on earth is anyone going to do about it, other than give some guy a certificate to say he did a great job. Does anyone really care?

It is interesting that the state of California and New York are ranked 28th and 33th, respectively, and Hawaii having most gambling-related arrests per capita although there are fewest casinos/gaming machines per capita, according to the article found in the link below.

33rd.

Bummer.

So they make a list of the most gambling addicted states in the US, while stating in the same article, that they can`t even track a large part of the population, the millennials, on this issue. Yep, that makes sense. Another study the world does not need.

They could track them if they really want - all they would need is to look after DraftKings, FanDuel and the websites where you could bet with/risk of your CS:GO skins. These are the things the younglings care for right now.

I am surprised that Texas is not even in the top 10. I thought cowboys played a lot of poker and liked gambling and drinking beer after eating a big rare steak... lol

Anyways, I'm guessing it's impossible for these stats to count count all the illegal games and the home games so the conclusion could easily be wrong. Gambling hasn't been socially accepted like beer si yet Blink

Good luck mobsters
