The Most Gambling-Addicted States
Maine has two casinos, the Maine State Lottery has been around since 1974. The first weekly draw game in Maine was called 'Play Me' in June 1974 and Joseph Comeau of Bangor was the first jackpot winner of 'Play Me' winning $150,000.
In 2016 we have plenty of instant scratch tickets, several weekly jackpot games, so where does Maine rank in the 2016 list of the most gambling-addicted states?
