5 facts about gambling
Gambling has been with us for a long time and it will remain with us long. 3,000 BC in Mesopotamia people played dice, and now, using a computer and Internet access, you can play on the budget of a small country in one evening. I want to remind you that playing in a casino is not a way to make money, but it’s just entertainment. There is a chance of winning a prize, but you should not count on it. If you don’t understand everything mentioned above, you can be very disappointed. It is very important to find the casinos with the highest rating and reputation – the reviews of online casinos can help you. You can use the experience of other people to make decisions.
Men are more prone to gambling
About 11% of all Internet users are gamblers and currently, 80% of them are men. Nevertheless, every year the proportion of women continues to increase. The average player is over 30 years old, but young men are most at risk of becoming players because of their impulsiveness - the probability is 8 times higher.
Slots are the most popular game
The fact about slot machines - earlier they gave out chewing gum, which could be exchanged for money. That is why many slots still use fruit symbols. Studies show that 65% of online casino profits come from slot machines. Winning or losing - it’s luck, but even if you win a huge sum of money, the casino will earn much more than you. The overwhelming proportion of revenue generated by casinos around the world comes from the games for the lowest rates – for 1 cent. 90% of players play online.
The biggest win in history
Since the jackpot increases with every bet, some of them can be huge. In 2015, Jonathon Heywood, a former soldier from the UK, bet 25 pence and won £ 13.2 million. In 2013, the Finn over the age of 40 made a bet of 25 cents and won € 17 861 813. There is even a video of his winning spin.
Not all the winnings are paid out
41-year-old Bruno Venturi bet 18 pounds in the online casino “Eurobet UK” and turned them into 650 000. Operators refused to pay him, referring to the failure of the software. Although Bruno tried his luck in court, the court supported the casino - in the conditions of the game on the site, it is written in small print that in case of a computer error the winnings will not be paid out.
Beware of the devil’s game
The sum of all the numbers on the roulette is 666, that is, the "number of the beast." Ironically, Roulette is one of the few games in the casino with a small EDGE. In American roulette, where there are numbers "0" and "00" the player’s chances will be much worse.
