Do you buy ottery tickets for Christmas, birthdays, when you visit the liquor store, get gas, and/or just for fun? You are not alone. And if you live in Massachusetts you’ve got plenty of company! LendingTree did a study in 2020 and recently revealed their findings. Their researchers looked at how much people are spending on lotteries by state. They also looked at whether the people who buy can afford it. In addition, LendingTree asked nearly 2,000 U.S. consumers about “their lottery attitudes and habits.”
The results showed that Massachusetts residents spend more on the lottery than any other state. But we don’t lose the most. Another New England State can claim that title. See the results, and more fun facts, below.
