When it comes to gaming, North Dakota is considered among the top “gambler-friendly” states while it also ranks among states with the fewest gambling related problems and treatment.

Personal finance Web site WalletHub looked at data across several categories and measures to rank the most gambling addicted states.

Overall, North Dakota ranks 22nd on the list.

North Dakota ranks 12th in terms of “gambling friendly states.” That’s based on categories such as commercial and tribal casinos per capita, lottery sales per capital and iGaming sales per capita, among others.

At the same time, North Dakota ranks 47th in terms of states with “gambling problems and treatment.”

This is based on measures such as share of adults with Gambling Disorder, number of gambling counselors per capita and others.

According to WalletHub, the gaming industry is a $240 billion a year business.

American gambling losses account for $100 million. “Gambling Disorder,” as gaming addiction is called, results in an average gambling debt of between $55,000 and $90,000 for men, and $15,000 for women.
