Oregon is on a good trail with gambling treatment even as revenues are in the bottom half


Oregon has a trail of 66,655(2.2%) of adults presently reporting signs of a gambling problem.  They have the option of 19,536 electronic machines, 9 Indian casinos, pari-mutual betting, charitable gambling and a state lottery available on both traditional and video formats to help them feed their problem.

The revenue Oklahoma reported for 2012 was a 29th ranked (nationally) $1.52 billion.

In respect to that ranking, treatment spending is an outstanding $1.31 per capita (2nd nationally).  With this the state Problem Gambling Helpline received 1,257 calls for 2012.
