It’s not surprising that online gaming is becoming very popular in many niches. Not just the regular games websites. It certainly includes online casinos.
People are playing more online day by day and gambling is one of the favorite types of games. But what is the most played game in the online casino websites? We have the answer the for you in the following sentences!
New studies made by SIGMA just revealed that slots play the biggest role in the casino market. However, in terms of general betting, they come to second place as the fan favorite is the sports betting.
Let us explain. Sports betting takes around 80% of the bet market worldwide, mainly because of football. Studies claim that almost 70% of sports fan have at least gambled or betted on a match of their favorite team. In other words, they keep sports bet out of this study, as the betting here ir more related on the match itself, than in the gambling or the winnings prize.
Back to online casinos, the studies claim that after slots which are played for more than 60% of the first time depositors, another gambler favorite is : roulette !
The online roulette takes the following 15% of the share of the favorite games. But why? We think we have an explanation.
It all comes back to the reason why people play in online casinos: Money!
It is really obvious that what matters most when we play in a casino in the current prizes. Everytime we register a new account at a gambling site we are then followed to the slot machine tabs. The prizes there are huge, as most of this slots have a progressive jackpot.
This jackpot values usually hit millions of euros or dollars. The more the people bet in those games the bigger the prize increases making it an eye candy for the players.
It is not surprising that people are willing to win such jackpots, even tho they are difficult, most of them have a winning ratio of close to 98%. What does that mean, you ask? Let me explain further.
A slot with a winning ratio of 98%, means that for each 100 euros you play (or any equivalent currency), you are most likely to win back 98 euros. The jackpot works in another way tho. This prize is giving randomly to a person playing at a certain time, you just need to be lucky!
Back to the study, people prefer the online roulette in the second place, because of the huge winning probability.
If you bet in the roulette in a “simple” way, your winning or losing chances are close to 50%. In other words, if you bet Red, there are only two options. You get red or black, and duplicate or lose your money. Of course there is always the zero, but as its only one number, the odds of getting a zero are almost none!
Following this two casino games, the other favorites taking 25% of the market are poker and blackjack respectively. The study also says that many of the poker players are always the same, as the casinos do tournaments where people have to play a big number of tables to win a big match prize.
