    Default Men and women gamble differently, study says

    Women gamble to be social, while men take on high-risk bets for the challenge of beating the house, according to a recenty study by Brock University in Canada.

    "Men like to show their masculinity. Gambling is a way of demonstrating masculinity with some sort of game of skill, so they believe they have some sort of control," (said researcher Heather Chalmers).

    "Women tend to engage in activities that are less skill-oriented such as bingo, lotteries and slot machines."
    And then this interesting note ...

    The men were more likely to wager prized possessions, company shares, cigarettes, drugs and sexual favours.

    "I had heard that males were betting their girlfriends, so we included sexual favours as one of the potential things you could wager," she said.

    Very interesting article- seems like more and more products are being launched along gender lines in this industry- take 888ladies.com for example- the new bingo site from 888. coulnīt get more gender focused if they tried

    Default We saw that coming

    Do we really need another study to tell us how different women and men are? LOL

    It is interesting though.

    Here at EuroPartners we wanted to approach this niche so we created Cameo Casino.

    It is a casino site designed for women and by women. I am yet to see any worthwhile portals targeting this sector, but we're ready for it.

    I think that's a man's way in his man's world. And I agree on the first point there. I always had that impression with women who gamble.

    Tried to wager my watch at 888 once, but they only take credit cards. What a shame.

    I don't know, nowadays Millenials can't even tell what gender they are or what restroom to use so... maybe so. In fact, I'm surprised no one has derided this study as being biased, racist, sexist, white nationalist, and funded by time travelling Nazis.

    I think that men and women may have different types of gambling they like.

    However, slots are popular in Japan where I live, but most are male.

    Hi all,

    I think that men are more gamble than women. Just look at design of slots, they are more attractive for men.
    It's like a sport, how many famous players do you know ? And how many of them are women ?)

    Women definitely don't gamble to be social, at least not the majority of them. I see a good number of them putting "Reserved" signs on 2 or 3 slot machines so that no one else can play them while they spend a few minutes at each one trying to hit the jackpot

    Women bet more on casino and slots, they are not in deep awarness of the variety of sports live and pre-match games.

    I've seen that men tend to gamble and bet on football, horse racing and sports related games more, while women like to bet on and play a game of roulette and the poker machines along with similar games.
