New Study Reveals Nevadans Are Cheating Video Games
The folks at ReplayPoker.com recently looked at Google stats to check up on Americans who are cheating video games. Basically, they counted searches for terms like “hacks,” “cheats” and “mods.” In fact, they analyzed data for 200 search terms to determine if Americans were cheating mobile and video games. Additionally, they wanted to find out which state’s residents cheat the most.
Considering all the data, if you like to cheat, you’re in good company. Nevada ranks fourth in this study. Specifically, the stats show about “265 monthly cheat-related searches per 100k people” in The Silver State. Obviously, we believe “if we ain’t cheatin’, we ain’t tryin!’”
Furthermore, the ReplayPoker.com study goes on to specify the games on which we Nevadans are more likely to cheat. The most searches were for “Sims 4 Mods” and “Wordle cheats.” I try to play “Wordle” every day. However, I don’t compete against other players, so I have no reason to cheat. Apparently, those who do play competitively in Nevada have no problem cheating to get the upper hand.

So, which other states join Nevada in the top 5? Accordingly, the state of Washington has the most people cheating video games. They average 281 searches each month. Obviously, there’s something in the water up there in the Pacific northwest, because Oregon places second, and Alaska places third. What’s going on up there? North Dakota rounds out the top five in fifth place.
The most honest state according to ReplayPoker.com is Mississippi. Louisiana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Alabama are all honest when it comes to video game hacks too.
