Texas gambling revenue rounds out top 10 but no treatment funding is available?


Texas, having identified an estimated 417,937 (2.2%) residents with the potential of being problem gamblers, provided 1,858 electronic machines, a state lottery, a Class II Indian gambling facility and charity gambling for them. Texas is ranked 10th nationally for gaming revenue at $4.10 billion without the Indian revenue included because it is regarded as Confidential. 

Treatment funding is not provided and all such operations are operating with volunteers. As a result the NCPG contracts with the Louisiana {problem Gamblers Hotline to provide services for the national hotline.
