Virginia gambling revenue middle of the road but no funding for problem gambling services.

Standard

Virginia has an estimated 138,849 (2.2%)  citizens with a potential gambling problem (self-reported via survey).  It raises $1.62 billion in revenue from a state lottery, pari-mutual wagering and charity gambling which ranks 27th nationally.

 At this time Virginia provides no public funding for problem gambling services and depends solely on volunteer groups to address problems.
