Women Love Online Poker Too

Hollywood actress Jennifer Tilly is quite a poker player. Tilly won $158,625 in the Ladies No-Limit Texas Hold “Em event at the World Series of Poker in June.

Since the first online casino was launched online in 1995, women have continued to grow in the ranks of players. Today, 53% of all online gambling is done by women. While men might dominate online sports book betting, women dominate in internet bingo, blackjack, and online casino games.

The National Coalition to Ban Legalized Gambling believes that while men gamble online for the “action”, women gamble online to “escape”. One thing is for sure: playing in your pajamas when you can’t sleep sure beats all the trouble of getting dressed up and going to a casino.
