It’s a widespread misconception that casinos are just boys’ clubs but online casinos are ahead of the game when it comes to gender equality of their players. But why has the trend changed? Today we are talking about gender and the casino world.
Before casinos went online, gamblers had fewer options when it came to finding somewhere to play. Land-based casinos were certainly a possibility and the traditional slot machine (or ‘one-armed bandit’) could be found in places like bars, bingo halls and other nondescript places.
If you were a woman looking to spend some money and enjoy yourself, you were often faced with the prospect of walking into a casino and being the only female person there. Casinos, for the longest time, were considered a place for men and it’s not hard to imagine that this kind of majority-male patronage could be intimidating to a woman, particularly one still new to the games.
All that changed with the emergence of online casinos. Anyone could access casino games now, from the comfort of their own homes and without the hassle of getting to a brick and mortar casino or the awkward sensation of being the odd one out.
Women could finally try out casino games without feeling like they were being watched or scrutinized, and online casinos have launched the high-flying career of many a female poker pro. In the past, it might have been much more difficult for them to break in to the field, based solely on their gender. With fame and fortune comes the opportunity to bring more recognition and exposure to the game, which gives other women the chance and drive to compete too. A win-win!
Anyone can play at any online casino they like, given that they are of age and in a non-restricted country. And no casino would be foolish enough to exclude one gender in favour of the other. However, a number of online casinos have paid closer attention to their female players, tailoring the site design, gaming experience and general feel of the site towards them.
