Online Gambling and Women in the UK

Online Gambling and Women in the UK
There has recently been a survey undertaken by an online consumer search and behavior organization, Hitwise. The findings of the research were publicized by the Belle Rock online casino group. The research showed the updated statistics regarding women and online gambling in the United Kingdom. Interestingly, the survey found that the number of female online gamblers in the UK has risen to nearly 50 percent. The Hitwise survey took into account all UK- based online casinos, not only those that form part of the Bell Rock group of online casinos. There was a similar survey done in 2007. Between 2007 and 2010, the number of women participating in online gambling in the UK has increased fourfold, bringing the actual numbers to nearly as much as the men who are gambling online. As of 2011, women now constitute 48.38% of the UK players, with 51.62% being male. The survey notes that this increase in numbers is likely because women feel safer being able to gamble online from the comfort of their own homes, rather than at land based casinos. Many online casino sites and online bingo sites have noticed the trend that more women are taking part in online gambling, and have made sure to offer games and chat rooms that are specially designed with women in mind. There are also whole online gaming sites that have been designed with women in mind. The survey shows that men seem to vary the kind of online gambling that they take part in , and that women tend to stick more to one choice. Men are likely to play online poker, sports betting, online roulette, and other games, while women are more drawn towards games such as online casino slots and also online bingo games. Female bingo players already outnumber the male bingo players by a huge margin.
