It’s Raining Men at the Online Casino

With all the technology surrounding the online casino community, it’s a small world out there, that’s for sure, but it’s certainly not a men’s world anymore. Maybe that was the situation at the beginning of online casinos, 10 years ago, but right now the situation has completely changed, maybe even reversed. Women play online at least as much as men in most countries, and do it with the same enthusiasm. It’s true, sometimes women prefer other games than men, with online bingo being the best example. Nevertheless, some games are enjoyed by both of them, even if that wasn’t the situation until only a few years ago.

Just as an example, in the last World Series of Poker, Katja Thater took a bracelet in a regular event, becoming the first one to do it in three years. As more and more female players join the online poker rooms, the sites themselves are trying to adapt to the new situation, simply by adding features that appeal more to women. The option to chat, for example, was added as many women look for a social experience when playing at an online casino. Online casino sites, of course, couldn’t be happier, as they appeal to a wider audience and are able to attract more visitors.

Sites offering specific female-targeted themes are starting to become more common and prevalent, and more are surely to come, followed by new female players and visitors. So, who was the one saying that the online gambling world belonged only to men ?
