LendEDU's fourth annual lottery spending report analyzed the most recent U.S. Census data to see what the average American is spending on the lottery, which states spend the most, and how each state spends its yearly lottery revenue.

Many or all of the companies featured provide compensation to LendEDU. These commissions are how we maintain our free service for consumers. Compensation, along with hours of in-depth editorial research, determines where & how companies appear on our site.
