The New Female Gamblers

Gambling has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years. As gambling houses and saloons developed into casinos, they became a playground for the elite and the image of the 'old boys club' was common for a long time. As online gaming and more accessible casinos became prevalent in the late 20th century, there has been a change in the makeup of the gambling population and there are now more women than ever that play online on a regular basis. In the UK alone, millions of women regularly game online, a trend that is continuing to grow year on year. The art of gambling used to be mastered through years of practice, or tuition from friends and family members. This niche pastime was often kept in close circles and only certain members of the population would be associated with the casino world. Now with smartphones in almost every home and unprecedented internet connectivity, playing online has never been as easy. There is plenty of freely available information on how to pick up casino games on the internet and online casinos will often even have handy guides and tutorials to help players pick up rules quicker and ultimately enjoy themselves more. There are even dedicated poker websites aimed directly at women, with tips, links to other female players and poker scene coverage. Online gambling has changed significantly and the UK industry is strictly regulated and monitored. Players can gamble safe in the knowledge that they can limit how much they spend and can seek out help if they feel they are spending too much or are addicted to online gaming. Support organisation like GambleAware offer support to everyone who may have a problem, regardless of gender. There are even female gambling advice figures, who have recognised the rise in female gambling addicts and offer specialist advice. This new female interest hasn't gone unnoticed by gambling companies and there have been many changes to accommodate and entertain female gamblers. Poker regularly pops in female publications and online casino adverts will feature both male and female actors. There are even gambling websites that make it clear that their games are designed by women, for women. Online slots are a key area where online casinos make their money. The traditional dusty old 3 reel machines have made way for exciting themed games, offering multiple chances to win as well as fun themes and twists on the rules. Movie franchises, music artists and even reality TV celebs have licensed their image rights to be used to theme slot games. These new games have made slot machines a lot more mainstream and with and easily accessible gambling apps, female mobile gamers can have fun with their favourite characters. The big advantage with slots is that they are easy to pick up, safe and designed for every budget. You don't need to spend hours becoming an expert and you can play some spins even if you only have a few minutes to spare. The image of a 'lads night out' at the casino is quickly becoming a 'girls gaming night in'
