South Dakota has minimal revenue from gambling and treatment services are not detailed.


South Dakota’s self-reported 8,785 (1.4%)  residents who are demonstrating symptoms of problem gambling have 15,260 electronic machines, a lottery, Indian casinos, commercial casinos, pari-mutual betting and charitable gambling to choose from. 

State revenue from gambling is very low at $818.55 million (40th nationally) and it shows in the funding for treatment which is 24 cents per capita (20th nationally).

South Dakota deserves credit for its funding when you consider that other states ranked in the top 20 for revenue do less.  It however has kept most if not all of the statistical information unreported which leaves no way to compare their services provided to others.
