Golden State, California—or what the state’s gambling laws call the Golden Mile, if you’re into that—is the safest state for those who play slots, poker, roulette, and blackjack, according to a new report from the National Gaming Commission.
The report released Wednesday finds that California has been a safe bet for a variety of games for more than two decades.
That includes slot machines, which have had to play by a slightly different set of rules than other games.
“We have seen a significant decrease in the number of people who are playing slot machines in California over the past two decades, and that’s an important factor in this report,” said Brian McVay, director of the gaming commission.
“Casinos are not going anywhere, so it makes sense to focus on making the game safer for the consumers.”
The report notes that while California has the highest number of slot machines per capita, it also has the lowest number of casino deaths per capita.
That’s a notable difference because slot machines aren’t the only places where people die in the United States every year, according the report.
The number of deaths related to gambling in California is similar to the number from casinos in Atlantic City, which has one of the highest rates of death related to casino gambling in the country.
Other states with the highest overall number of gambling deaths per resident are Florida, with a high of 5,099 deaths per 100,000 residents; Mississippi, with 5,082; and Texas, with 4,876.
The states with lowest overall number per capita are Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
The average yearly death toll in California was 4,903, according a 2013 report from a nonprofit group called the Campaign for Safe and Healthy Families.
California is home to a number of casinos, but the most popular is the California Jackpot, which opened in the Golden Gate Park in 1978 and now has more than 10,000 slot machines and hundreds of other games in operation.
According to the report, the Golden Kid’s Casino in San Francisco, which reopened in 1998 and has about 1,600 slot machines across four floors, is the most dangerous place to play slots.
The Golden Mile is the largest casino in California, and is located in the heart of San Francisco.
It is also one of two gambling dens in the state, the other being the Casino San Jose.
The Las Vegas-based gaming company that runs the Golden Horse is based in the city of Las Vegas, with its headquarters in Carson, Nevada.
The gambling industry in Nevada is booming, with more than $5 billion in annual revenue, according statistics compiled by the Gaming Control Board of Nevada.
While the Golden Michigan State Fair is in the middle of its three-week season, the annual Las Vegas strip event is already one of its most popular, according, to the Gaming Commission of Nevada, with about 4,500 slots and more than 4,200 tables.
And according to the Gambling Control Board, the city’s casinos are among the safest places in the world to play.
“The GACN’s analysis of data from all 50 states and DC confirms that California and Nevada are the safest states for gambling,” said McVays report.
“That’s thanks in large part to the fact that these states have a very high proportion of slot-machine operators and operators of gaming dens,” he added.
In addition to the casino industry, the gambling commission found that California was the only state where people are still dying from gambling-related illnesses at a higher rate than anywhere else.
The vast majority of people with gambling-associated illness are over 65.
The state has a large number of high-risk populations, including those who gamble heavily in gambling dens and those who are addicted to painkillers and other drugs, the report found.
The GACn also found that the highest percentage of people playing slots, roulettes, and other blackjack are men.
The lowest percentage of slot, rouler, and others is women, the study found.
“This study provides important insights into the role that slot, poker and black-jack are playing in our state’s overall gambling problem,” said Jack T. Harris, the executive director of GAC National.
“It’s time for all Californians to step back and say: We’ve got a problem.
Let’s get to the bottom of it.”
The Gambling Commission of California is currently studying new rules that could make the state safer for people who play slot machines.
The new rules would allow slot machines to open late at night in most places, including Las Vegas.
“Slot machines should be open until 6 p.m.,” said Harris.
“And if the slot machine is closing at 6 p:00 p., the operator should not be allowed to play until 6:00 a.m.”
