Women Gambling 101


There is a fundamental difference in the outlook of men and women about gambling. Surprised!! Well it is true. Gambling is an activity a woman can enjoy the most once she is financially and personally independent and this comes as news to both the sexes i.e. both men and women are amazed by this fact. The difference in opinion results from the difference in perception about gambling of men and that of the women. When a woman describes about gambling the focus is very subjective i.e. the atmosphere of the casino or rather the whole environment prevalent there, their feelings and emotions about it and other things associated with it whereas if a man describes the same then the approach is very narrow or to be more precise the focus revolves around the money won or lost which ironically in the case of women is one of the last factor considered.

Talking about the preference of the women in gambling, the slot machines are the most commonly enjoyed. There are theories suggesting that gambling for women acts as a means for an escape and also that they prefer games with less action and creativity. Though even other games like cards are popular, the slot machines still are the majority view. The women do not only go to the casinos to pass some good time rather they spend time like they are on a vacation and enjoys every bit of their stay there.

To answer a question of the nature that what is the main reason of women for gambling, out of the various answers that pop up we can take three most general ones. Firstly it provides as very good means of escape. This is to say that women can gamble care-free and not bother about who is watching them or what opinion one holds about them as gambling is interaction free. Secondly, as we have been observing, it provides as great source of entertainment. And lastly, some of the women might gamble to become wealthy or rather we can say to improve their financial conditions. Observing the three conditions we can concur on the point that women have good enough and quite logical reasons to gamble.

Apart from going to casinos and gambling there in real life, online means of gambling is also luring the females and is becoming popular these days. There can be two factors associated with online gambling by women. Primarily, being able to gamble without even leaving the house and secondly, it offers them a greater sense of privacy. One problem that might be associated withy online gambling is that it oftenly becomes a mod of escaping problems in one's life thereby, becoming an addiction.

Talking about addiction, the major cause, which leads to such, is the accessibility and availability of the gambling outlets and that too is ever escalating. The temptation has further increased to try and gamble, owing to the recent increase in the number of gambling centres as they are now easily legalised.
