Are there differences between male and female gamblers?
« on: June 19, 2016, 11:14:41 AM »
I believe like in everything else, women generally have a different approach to gambling than men.
Some differences from the top of my head:

  • Men are more "loud". It is easier to spot a male high roller than a female high roller.
  • Women are more patient.
  • Less women roulette players take notes (write down numbers, systems etc. numbers etc.)
  • Women are more into slots.
  • Some women support their gambling by offering "services" to other players.
  • Women are more impressed by big winners.
  • Women prefer to play normal hours than early morning hours.

*Men are more "loud". It is easier to spot a male high roller than a female high roller.
*Women are more patient.
*Less women roulette players take notes (write down numbers, systems etc. numbers etc.)
*Women are more into slots.
*Some women support their gambling by offering "services" to other players.

Is this serious?

"Women are more patient."
"Women are more impressed by big winners."
No hint of sexism there then?

"Men are more "loud". It is easier to spot a male high roller than a female high roller."
You've obviously never been on a gaming floor when a group of women are out for the evening together and their luck's in.

"Some women support their gambling by offering "services" to other players."
And the relevence of this is . . . . ? Some people of both sexes support their gambling by theft and defrauding others . . .

With respect I think you're more than a tad guilty of gender stereotyping in posting what you have. Out of interest, which part of the world do you live in?

Please ask your self if you are brainwashed by political correctness.
If you are not allowed or blind folded to see any gender, ethnic or other differences between groups of people, because they told you you shouldn't, that's ok. I'm happy to hear your opinion.  Just don't try to discredit the other opinion with accusations of "stereotyping", "sexism", "racism" etc. It is good to remember this rule of free speech: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”

But this is about, please let's avoid ruin it with politics.

Call it what you are taught to call it, this is my perception and experience. What is "sexism" anyway? Are you seriously telling me you don't see any psychological, sociological and behavioral differences between the sexes?

By "services" I mean sex services.

I'm talking about true high rollers, not lucky players. I woman who spends many thousands $ in a visit will generally do it in a way that would attract less attention that a man who spends the same kind of money.

Caught you there! You are "stereotyping" the opinions of people living in certain parts of the world. LOL.

Not really . . . . there are parts of the world (Greece being one in my experience - I've visited there several times) in which sexist views are common, particularly outside of the metropolitan areas and amongst the older generations. That's my experience, and I can point to lots of examples to underpin it.

I'm afraid making the point (of questional relevence) that "Some women support their gambling by offering "services" to other players" (yes, I know what you meant) is a one-sided comment, without a balancing view that men can be equally guilty of ethical, moral or criminal behaviour to fund their gambling. Sorry, but in my book that's pure sexism.

Values changes with time and location.  Some years ago males from Ireland use to ask if they had to pay the bill for a lady in a bar if they talk to them (They were here and would not ask if they may be expected to do so at home) It should be
offensive to do it if no relation exist before. . In Germany a  lady could take a cigarette and  expect one of the men around instantly should light it. As from Sweden I did not even notice she had an cigarette.  Once I was invited to a girl in south Germany. I left after I got some beers, and she asked next day one of my friends if I was a gay.
In Sweden the girl have to signal rather strong, and not take for granted an invitation is enough.

Very good - one relevent to the discussion at hand, the other less so. But nothing in either article around women being prepared to sell their sexual favours in order to raise money? I wonder why that is?

This is my experience. To me this is a fact.
And FYI I'm not critical to them (not that it would be "wrong" to be critical). In my book offering sex for money is not near to "guilty of ethical, moral or criminal behaviour". It is choice/decision between two consenting parties.

I think you're somehow missing the point . . . .

Shame this conversation isn't taking place in a casino bar somewhere and included some women players. I'm pretty sure that if you came out with your comment in such circumstances they'd be a very real risk of some drinks being poured over your head !

Are you serious?  Have you been to a casino?

Women are much louder.

Even the normal hours part is way off base.  The women are often the late night and early mornings. 
I suspect it's the part of the world in which you live.  In different parts of the world different cultures may behave differently.

I've heard of loud women at the craps table before...

Guys,
I'm not talking about girls having fun at the casino.
Male big money players are louder than women big players in "my part of the world". The little granny you see there silently playing the slots with $100 coins may have lost the house and you wouldn't notice, while the 10K chips buy in roulette player may attract all the attention.

Interesting point, it's true that at some certain countries around the world women are expecting the man to pay the bill regardless if they have an affair or not, it happened to me several times and 1 of them was with 44 years old woman, it was just a casual, friendly rendezvous at a restaurant, without being in any kind of relationship, but she raised the issue of me paying for her orders too.

That woman was 10 years older, introduced me as business owner but she was expecting me to pay the bill, do you consider it normal??
So if someone lives at such part of the world and has to pay everything for a woman, would he negotiate what the woman will order at a restaurant before hand, or it would cause a scene during the dinner when the woman orders something like caviar with lobster and Dom Perignon of '67??!

It happened me such situation too, again out for a casual friendly meeting, I'm ordering Jack on the rocks (1 of my favorites) but the girl wanted to eat and ordered 1st course, salad, main course and a dessert while I was watching her silently eating with great appetite, I tried to bring a few words out of her, but she was too busy chewing meat and shaking tomato juice!
Do you consider this normal??

IMO if there is NO relationship, each 1 pays his/her own, or if someone gets it for 1 time, the other should pay the next time, do you agree?

Normally I wouldn't bother to discuss about what we are going to order, but some women are bringing you in a very uncomfortable position...when someone is paying for your own s*** you could not have a choice but to accept whatever is being offered to you for free, otherwise if you don't like what's free, then pay from your pocket and get whatever you want!

Does this sound normal to you?
Well, for some women isn't so obvious because they probably thinking that they could order and get whatever they want while the joker with them should pay everything!

Besides does that pussy being made by platinum??!
From the other hand you could listen women talking about: "This idiot expects to lay with him just because he made me the dinner!"

To conclude my raving, the aftermath is that you should never take for granted what you consider normal according to your standards, other persons other mentalities...!
