You Think Men Are Better Gamblers in CASINOS? The Truth Might Surprise You

Brain Surgery: What’s Going On Under the Hood

Let’s look at the raw materials. Is it nature or nurture that defines behaviour? A team of researchers led by Daphna Joel, from the University of Tel Aviv, released a study in 2015 that found very few physical differences between male and female brains.

Using the latest MRI scanners, the research revealed only minor deviations and just 0.1 per cent of subjects displayed exclusively stereotypical male and female behaviours. “There is no one person that has all the male characteristics and another person that has all the female characteristics. Or if they exist they are really, really rare to find,” says Joel.

Another paper from the University of Iowa also refutes any preconceived notion that gender behaviour is hard-wired. It appears that the plasticity and malleability of the brain is shaped by experience. The area of the brain connected to social cognition, interpersonal judgment, and empathy is generally larger in women. Due, it is thought, to the female role as primary parent.

The cause is unclear and traits appear in both genders. What the report suggests is that gender behaviours are a result of education, culture, and tradition.

Online casinos have changed the way people gamble. Traditionally, the land-based casino has been the home of the alpha male: unafraid to take risks and confident at the tables. Today, modern venues reach out to all demographics by offering visitors a wide range of entertainment options.

Playing online is the perfect way for the casino-shy to test their luck and enjoy a little time at the tables. There’s no one looking over your shoulder, you don’t need to worry about making the wrong call at the blackjack table, and you don’t need to get dressed up to play. It’s a non-threatening space that allows a nervous casino fan to play without fear.
