Do you know 79 percent of women choose to gamble online in their free time? And according to recent statistics, women are dominating men in gambling.
Gambling can be a good pass time. This is a known fact that gambling can be pleasurable if done in limits. More than a limit, then it turns into an addiction. You must have seen a lot of people gambling online using different usernames. But what you cannot see most of the time is that 7 out of 10 of those people are women.
It was a male-dominated world, but it has become clear that women are as powerful as men. So, the era of male dominance is long gone. Like many other fields, the gambling community is being ruled by women. Yes, women and gambling in history have more in common than you would think – and we will take a look at why.
Females and Gambling – Why More Women Are Jumping on the Bandwagon
Well, it must not be surprising at all. Women are after all overshadowing men in all fields nowadays. However, when you hear gambling, you instantly think of middle and old aged men on a poker table. That time has gone, with more and more female gamblers joining the community. Now there is no bias between genders when it comes to gambling.
If you look at the past, you will notice that females were already rising on the gambling scene. One name that every serious gambler knows is ‘Poker Alice’. Poker Alice or Alice Huckert was an American gambler known for her poker skills. Her ‘poker face’ is a legend after all. It is also a fact that she got quite rich gambling. Another woman, more popularly known as the ‘Poker Queen’ has been known to give male gamblers serious nightmares.
Poker Queen or Poker Alice?
Lottie Deno or ‘Poker Queen’ is a prime example of female gamblers who made history. The Poker Queen earned her title by defeating a well-known male poker player. So, she might be a better role model than Poker Alice if you ask anyone. Lottie Deno did not win a lot of bucks before retiring from poker, but she did beat Doc Holiday. That is way better than the claims about Poker Alice. So, if you really want to know who was better, it is without any doubt the ‘Poker Queen’.
In earlier days, gambling was considered to be a man’s cup of tea. However, that did not stop these female legends from gambling. Thanks to them, females all over the world took on to professional gambling. Now, you have professional women gamblers who are known to win big.
From a long time now, female gamblers have been besting men in all areas of gambling. With women taking inspiration from the Poker Queen, there are now many more women who have taken up gambling professionally. The gambling community needs to watch out because women are giving men a serious run for their money.
