Men Prefer Skill Games Like Blackjack 30.08.2012

Pretty much everyone will agree that men and women are different. Several researchers decided to study the gambling habits of 10,000 players at two popular internet casinos to see if typical male and female behaviors remain even when it comes to gambling. The players’ information was derived from three games: blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

The survey started by looking at the ages of players. The average male player is 33 years old while the average female player is slightly younger and closer to 29. However, most male and female players were found to be young professionals with a few hundred dollars of disposable income.

If you think about men and women it should be no surprise that men, who are typically more aggressive deposit more money and place larger wagers than women who tend to bet more conservatively. However, following this, the study showed that women actually lose about a third less money per month than men even though the ladies spend an average of 9 hours a month gambling as opposed to men spending 6.5 hours.

Men also preferred to spend their time proving themselves at skill and aptitude based games like blackjack. This result is most obvious when we compare the percentage of male and female players at blackjack and roulette specifically. 33% of the blackjack players were men while 27% were women which showed that both sexes do enjoy blackjack. However, the significance of this data becomes clear when we see that roulette games, which are more based on chance than skill, are preferred by 62% of women.
