Is Texas among the most gambling-addicted states?Dave Thomas, Austin American-Statesman · April 26, 2018 at 9:12 pmI bet you can’t name the most gambling-addicted state. Actually, hold on, that’s a terrible bet. The most obvious guess — Nevada! — would be absolutely right.Wallethub, the credit and financial advice website, released their study of 2018’s Most Gambling-Addicted States and Texas fares pretty well, coming in at No. 29, right between Wyoming and Minnesota.Depending on how you feel about gambling, you could be happy or sad that Texas is near the bottom in casinos per capita (40th) and gaming machines per capita (42nd). However, it’s definitely not good that we’re in the top 10 in gambling-related arrests per capita (8th) and percentage of adults with gambling disorders (9th).
