Who buys lotto tickets?
About two-thirds Americans gamble. Last year, they spent $ 72.97 billion on traditional lottery tickets, according to Gallup.
On average, it is $ 206.69 per person. "Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that a unicorn feeling, like, maybe it will be me," said CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger in October. She pointed out that someone does not necessarily play to win.
"They just want to take a moment out of the day to consider how to dream big," Schlesinger said.
Massachusetts residents have the greatest flavor to play the odds, spending almost $ 763 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey by LENDedu. North Dakotans is opposite the spectrum, spending about $ 44 a year on the lottery.
