*Denominator includes respondents who have NEVER played games for money, such as casino gambling, scratch card games,
video poker, or the lottery.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
