Whether you're indulging in lavish spending or unwinding after a tough day at work at the casino, many of us have a side that craves excitement. People have various ways of unleashing their wild side, some of which may even be against the law!

Keeping this in mind, OLBG, The Sports Betting Community, set out to discover which cities in the United States have gained a reputation for their wild party scenes.

To find out which US cities are the wildest, OLBG looked at a range of data... from the number of casinos per 100,000 residents to the percentage of people who have taken cocaine.

Turns out Arizona knows how to party.

There are 2 Arizonian cities in the Top 10. Let's dig deeper into the details, shall we?

Tied for 6th place is Tucson. Tucson has a higher score overall, but Phoenix (who came in 9th place overall) scored highest when it comes to people who have taken cocaine.

OLBG used City Data to find the percentage of people who have used marijuana or any form of cocaine.

It's hard to beat Nevada - also with 2 cities on the list - because the state absolutely destroys the competition regarding casinos per capita. Reno, however, is top on the list. Not Las Vegas. There are more spur-of-the-moment drinkers in Vegas, but binge drinking is bigger in Reno.

Check out the top 10 below, some may surprise you!
