Kentucky is the Fourth Least Gambling-Addicted State
It's horse betting season; I mean the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday. Oddly, Kentucky is one of the least gambling-addicted states.
Kentucky is tied with Arkansas, Georgia, Hawaii, New Hampshire, and South Carolina for the fewest casinos per capita. And we have some of the lowest percentages of adults with gambling disorders. Gambling disorders affect slightly more than two percent of the U.S. population. Compulsive gambling costs an estimated $6 billion (BILLION) per year.
An interesting fact to lay on your friends and family at this year's Derby party.
