North Dakota gambling revenue low but treatment spending above average.

Standard

North Dakota had gambling revenue in 2012 of $194.6 million (46th nationally) from 3,647 electronic machines, a state lottery, Pari-mutual wagering, Indian Casinos and charitable gambling. An estimated 8,175(1.5%) * of adults as believed to presently have a gambling problem (statistics from self-report survey). 

While the state is near the bottom in respect to revenue, they spend 46 cents per capita (11TH nationally) on problem gambling services. That is 14 cents above the average of 32 cents. The services appear to be minimal from the NCPG report.
