Casino operator reveals their hand: breaking user stats

Written by Super User. Posted in Casino Culture

If you’re an avid online gambler then it might have occurred to you every once in a while to wonder if other people play the same games as you, or how their playing habits compare with your own. That kind of information is actually quite hard to come by because it needs to come from the casino site itself; which is why it was great to see UK operator Smart Live Gaming publish this kind of information recently through their article ‘UK Gambling Performance Comparison’.

The piece comes with a highly insightful infographic which makes it pretty easy to absorb the info. In it they broke down the performance by UK gamblers by the cities they lived in –kind of pitting these regions against each other to showcase the most successful players. Using a system which removed the advantage of higher populations (as you’d expect London to have over most cities) Smart Live Gaming determined that of all their players Liverpudlians were the most successful bettors. They were closely followed by the players from London and Manchester.

The info, taken from their own internal data system, also showed that the most successful gamblers in the UK were aged 40 – 44, no surprised there right? Wisdom trumps all. Interestingly, however, despite their higher win/loss ratio it also showed a steep player decline past that age group – maybe they won enough to retire? And adding some weight to the figure of Lady Luck, it turns out that despite women placing very similar bets to men, the women generally perform slightly better.
