Montana Ranks High In Gambling Addiction
Wallethub.com has come out with a list showing where all the states in America rank based on their gambling. This is tallied based on gambling problem & treatment and gambling friendliness. There are quite a few subcategories that we ranked high in also.
For gambling problems, Montana ranked 3rd highest. I have to think that this is also because we ranked high in casinos per capita and machines per capita.
This makes me incredibly sad. Good people are out wasting their money on something that isn't fulfilling or entertaining. It is an actual addiction just like drugs. There is root issue and gambling is the vice. If you need help or know someone who does please contact Montana Council on Problem Gambling. Or call 888-900-9979.
