No matter what people say in this politically correct world, there are a ton of differences between how men and women behave and a good deal of these differences can be seen when people are playing competitive games whether that’s an online game or playing at a bricks and mortar venue.
Online sites provide us with just the right environment to study if gender has an effect on what and how we play games like poker in all its variations, and sites like Sky Vegas are exactly what we want when we are analysing competitiveness and preferences between men and women.
It’s safe to say that for century upon century there has been a gender battle, with the consensus being that women are from Venus and men from Mars, and reputedly from most modern constitutions and governments, are equal, yet that does not mean that their preferences are necessarily the same, and nor should they be.
Statistics can be useful when taken over a large sample of people, and if these are applied to the games that men and women prefer, there are some definite patterns produced and that are also tied into the reasons why some people actually gamble.
Take the less competitive games such as slots and bingo. All of these activities are about having fun, and not so much emphasis is placed on the competitive side of the games, unlike poker. The first selection is widely played and enjoyed by women as they tend to gamble as an enjoyable pastime as is proved with bingo where the social side of things is probably more important than the game of bingo itself, whilst poker and video poker is about doing everything you can to improve and beat your opponents. Men tend to gamble for the action and the competitive nature of the games they choose.
