BritishGambler analyzes both male and female gamblers
BritishGambler reports a study about the difference between female and male gamblers.
According to them there are higher chances of women playing chance-based games, than men, who will most definitely place bets on sports.
The work for the study started at the beginning of this year and lasted until the end of last month (July). The research was done in almost 530 gambling websites around the United Kingdom. In addition, the study BritishGambler also held an interview with 850 bettors to understand their motive.
The research stated that 78% players of the “chance-based” games are women and when it comes to sports betting the majority are men, more specifically the 72%.
Therefore, BritishGambler stated the males are more attracted to “skill-based” contests. This also applies to games based mainly on chance, where male players try to impose a certain level of skill.
“It is very fascinating to study the difference between women and men bettors. The study shows that men are more captivated by skill-based betting. Though, what we found was that even in certain games that are mostly based on chance, male players try to impose a certain level of skill, such as poker, which has a large amount of odds, is considered skill-based and 83% of players are male.”
stated Alexander Kostin from BritishGambler.
Kostin talked about how female gamblers act contrary to male, but also stated that women are starting to place bets on sports even more. According to him during this year’s Royal Ascot half of the bettors were females.
“The difference between male and female betting is that women are less willing to broadcast when they lose. At the same time, the survey found that for most male gamblers, a big loss gives them bragging rights, as there is a machismo to say. (I lost, but I can afford it).”
