More and more every year.”
If your first reaction was skepticism, you don’t have to wait until 2017 for even more evidence of how wrong you really are. According to a Gallup poll released earlier this month, “The U.S. is a nation of gamblers.”
The poll was based on a telephone survey conducted July 1 through Aug. 17, 2016, among a random national sample of 1,000 adults who said they played casino chips, or “casino chips” as the pollsters refer to them. The survey had a margin of error of ±2.2 percentage points.
Perhaps most noteworthy, the poll found that “the share of adults ages 18-34 that play casino chips in the U.S. has jumped from 19.0% in 1990 to 38.9% in 2016.”
“The share of adults ages 35-44 playing casino chips has increased from 6.2% in 1990 to 13.2% in 2016.”
According to the study, the “gamblers” in this country play “at least four rounds of online table games per month” on average, which means the average American is “playing more than 3,000 hours each year playing table games, with another approximately 2,100 hours being spent online.”
How do people spend money?
On Tuesday, the Bank of America Corporation revealed that people around the U.S. spent almost $2.47 trillion (or roughly 6 percent of the U.S. economy) on shopping, dining, and entertainment in 2016, all on cards. That figure would have dwarfed the gambling spending of the entire U.S. economy in the year 2000.
What are casino chips?
Casino chips were invented by the New Orleans-based company that makes credit and debit cards in the ’50s. They are essentially paper credit cards with a bar code on them. They have to be printed in advance, and then you must deposit cash before you can play, something that requires your business associate to go through “security screening.” Then you must wait for it to process and you may or may not be guaranteed to get paid if you lose your chips.
Why are people so interested in gambling?
“Gambling has been a big business in recent years and has been growing at a fast pace.” – Dan Baer
One obvious reason is the sheer number of Americans gambling, and the fact the percentage of adults that say they gamble is up to 15 percentage
