Bet You Can’t Guess What State Is Most Addicted to Gambling (Actually, You Probably Can)


Ten bucks says you can figure out which state is most hooked on plunking down some money to win a bet.

WalletHub has created a list of the most gambling-addicted states.

Topping the list? Nevada, of course. That’ll happen when the state in question is home to an entire city whose number of slot machines are outnumbered only by the number of neon lights adorning its skyline.

At the other end of the spectrum is Alabama — that came in as the least gambling-addicted state, which means you’ll probably have a tough time finding someone to even bet on heads or tails.
