Who says online casinos are only for men? While most players at gambling sites are males, the number of women online casino players has increased over the years. According to a report by one translation service company, around 30% of iGaming customers are women. There is a wide gap between the number of male and female online casino frequenters, but the trends are interesting.

Many women shy away from online gambling because it’s not something they inherently like to do. They may also be intimidated by it. For first time players or those thinking of playing at an online casino, the following tips should help.


Don’t be afraid to explore.

The online gambling market is a level playing field for all sexes or genders. Players are not discriminated against by their sex or gender preference. It is not even necessary to reveal if you are male or female. The patriarchal nature of Indian society does not exist in the online gaming market.
If you don’t know where to start, there are many resources online you can use. You can visit IndiaCasinoInfo.com, for example, to find the best casinos to sign up with. You can also read guides and tips on how to make the most of your playing time.

Understand Local Laws

Online gambling is mostly legal in India. Only the states of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana have laws that clearly ban gambling through the internet. However, it is still advisable to inquire about relevant local or state laws on online casinos. It rarely happens that individuals are apprehended for playing at an online casino, but it is always better to be
sure than sorry.

Play live dealer games

Live dealer games simulate many aspects of a game in an actual physical casino. There’s a human dealer facilitating the games as well as real human players playing with you. These live games are a great opportunity to experience what it’s like to be in a real casino without the intimidation or the self-driven fear of being underestimated by other players. Use the
experiences to build your confidence and self-esteem.

Observe restraint

It is important to remember that online gambling is not exactly the ideal solution for those who lack empowerment. It presents opportunities to become empowered, but it also comes with risks. There’s the possibility of becoming addicted to playing and going the path of pathological gambling. This is a serious possibility everyone should be mindful of.

To avoid the risks, always remember to take things in moderation. Even if you are having a winning streak, make sure to take a break. Don’t make online gambling your world. It is only a distraction or a form of recreation. It should never become a major part of your life.
