This paper seeks to identify and explain the impacts of Covid-19 on gambling behaviors in the United States. I use OLS and Linear Regressions in order to get results on how gambling behaviors changed from various demographics of people. I use economic policy, economic theory, and gambling theory in order to draw connections with my results and that of the broader literature already studied on the topic. My data comes from a survey of US gamblers, but I also investigate the impacts worldwide. My results and research present the conclusion that online gambling did increase overall, but this varied significantly based on demographics and financial security through the woes of the Coronavirus. The results are explained through policy and theory.
