Who buys lotto tickets?
About two-thirds of Americans play. 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 the one-sided feeling that, perhaps, it will be me," says CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger. She points out that some people do not necessarily play to win.
"They just want to take a moment out of the day to consider how to dream big," Schlesinger said.
The average American spends around $ 223 a year on lottery tickets, according to a survey by LENDedu. Massachusetts residents have the greatest flavor to play the odds, and spend nearly $ 763 a year on lottery tickets, the study shows. North Dakotans is on the opposite side of the spectrum, spending about $ 44 a year on the lottery, or the lowest average number of residents in all 50 states.
