Gambling habits in the US
By rick
December’s Gallup Lifestyle Poll questioned Americans as to their gambling habits and predilections. While the most common form of gambling is their respective state lotteries – almost half of all Americans had purchased a ticket in the previous 12 months – physically located casinos came a close second. Approximately one third of all surveyed said that they had visited a casino that year and 1% had used online casinos.

10% had bet on professional sports and 6% had bet on college sports, whether that was online or not was not classified. Casino attendance had increased from 20% in 1987 to 30% at the end of 2003.

Gallup looked at the likelihood of certain sections of society participating in gambling or betting. According to their research if you find a non-white male 50–64 year old who lives in a city in the Midwest with four years of college behind them then chances are they’ll have gambled in the last year. And if they have a moderate ideology, no party affiliation, seldom attend a place of worship and earn $50,000 - $75,000 a year then the odds will really be against them not indulging!
