The psychology of men and women is very different. This applies to almost all spheres of human activity (art, study, career, family), including gambling. Of course, there are stereotypes in society about how representatives of different genders behave at the gaming table.
Many of them are wrong, but scientists still point out that some differences do exist. Interestingly, the owners of gambling establishments, both real and virtual, usually do not focus on the gender composition of their audience, trying to use universal marketing rules.
The only peculiarity is that the right theme for slot machines is chosen: men love slots related to military themes and adventures, and the fair half of humanity is attracted by soft toys and cats.
Statistics show that 86% of those who gamble on the Internet are men, while women account for only 14%. Psychologists explain this by the fact that the fair sex is much less inclined to risk, giving preference to quiet activities. And sociologists point out that women simply have less free time, since they do a lot of housework. Men, on the other hand, sometimes tend to view gambling as a way to make money.
Research also shows that men place higher bet m8win. The average size of their deposits is $ 94. Women who gamble online have an average of about $ 67 in their accounts.
There is an interesting correlation between a player’s age and gender. The average gambling man is between the ages of 30 and 40. Women, on the other hand, start gambling most often when they are over 40 years old. At a young age, 18 to 25 years old, both sexes show the same level of attraction to online casinos.
Are there any differences in motivation for men and women who spend their time on gambling? Yes. The fair sex see the game as an opportunity to forget about their problems for a while, to cope with depression or loneliness, to get positive emotions. That is, it is primarily a way to have fun. Men take gambling much more seriously.
Many see them as a way to make big money. When playing in a real casino, games are a way of social interaction: men through them demonstrate their status, and also make new acquaintances.
When and where do representatives of different genders play
About 13% of men admitted to gambling, even while at work. Obviously, some of the stronger sex who do this simply did not admit it. Women play either at home or on public transport. Although today both genders prefer online casinos, it is men who are more inclined to visit real establishments.
What games do men and women prefer?
The fair sex usually chooses those gambling games where almost everything depends on luck, and the skill of the players has almost nothing to do with it. The most popular are roulette, bingo, slot machines.
Men tend to choose games where you can either use a strategy (all types of poker, blackjack), or you can show your special knowledge, for example, betting on sports events in a bookmaker’s office. It is very important for the stronger sex to be aware in their activities that its result depends on their personal qualities, and not luck.
There is also an unconfirmed hypothesis that women are attracted to games where high emotions are manifested. For example, a lottery presenter must speak a lot and actively gesture to attract the fair sex to the game.
