Ohioans spend more than average playing lotto. Just how much?

More than $233 was spent for every woman, man and child in Ohio on state lottery games during 2015, according to a recent study.

Ohioans spend more each year on state lottery tickets than the average American, a new report shows. 

While Americans in states with lotteries spent $206.69 for every woman, man and child during 2015, those in the Buckeye State spent $233.57, according to a study by LendEDU.

Massachusetts residents shelled out the most per capita during 2015 on their state’s lottery: $734.85. Rhode Island residents were next at $513.75. Of states with lotteries, North Dakotans spent the least: $34.09.

Each state has a lottery except Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. 

Ohio ranked 14th on the list, sandwiched between Michigan, which averaged slightly more spending per capita, and Illinois.
