Women and online games

By Homer, in Gaming News, , 0 comments, 2244 views
SPONSORED ARTICLE
 
Women and online games are not exactly two peas in a pod. Or so we thought. The term gamer traditionally signifies a male player. It’s wrong for several reasons, not just the obvious ones. Even though most gamers are male, female gamers are not a myth. In fact, many women like to play games on their computers, and they’re especially into gaming on the go.
Online games have found their way on the market pretty quickly. With the rise of online casinos, online slots and video games are more available than ever. No matter what you think, women love online games, with many girls spending a nice portion of their free time spinning their fave slots on their smartphones or playing bingo.
What Attracts Women to Online Games?
Although women have been regarded as a minority when it comes to online gaming in the past, this peculiar relationship is attracting a lot of academic attention now. Studies have been conducted on the gender ratio and surprisingly, women account for nearly half of all gamers. This translates to all types of games – for every type of male player, you will find a female counterpart.
The same can be said for online casino games. Casual online casino games might not have struck you as an attractive pastime for women, but they really are. What ties women and online games the most is the social aspect. You’ll see many women enjoying online social games – the number may be even greater than male social gamers. As we mentioned, the social aspect is one of the key factors that brings women and online games together, just like the competition between friends or total strangers these games offer.
Genre Preferences Between Genders
The types of online games male and female players prefer differs. While men are generally more interested in competitive online games as well as fantasy games, shooters, and obviously sports, women are more inclined to play Match-3 games, puzzle games, and family and farming simulators.
When it comes to online casino games, women tend to prefer video slots and online bingo sites. This is nothing new – bingo has been considered a female game for years. Bingo and scratch cards are actually the only two markets dominated by females, with all other casino games being preferred by men.
According to statistics, the split between male and female players is 35%-65%, which is a big difference. This is why the online casino industry targets women with bingo games – brands often use bright and girlish colours for their online bingo sites in order to attract the fairer sex.
What Does the Future Hold?
By improving their games and adding new features such as chat in online bingo rooms, operators can hope an even greater influx of female players. Being a game aimed at women, mobile bingo will find its place among young women. Most women who play bingo online are aged 18-40 according to statistical data, so the myth about bingo being a game for grannies is invalid.
As more and more women become interested in online casino games, we expect the number of female gamers to rise in the coming years. For now, women rule the world of online bingo, and that is more than enough.

Top Five Underdog CS:GO Teams to Watch in 2019

By Homer, in Gaming News, , 0 comments, 2209 views
SPONSORED ARTICLE
 
The 2019 season of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a deifying year for the esport scene. There are more and more tournaments popping up and the prize pools continue to increase. Last year, it was all Astralis, but it should be different story in 2019. 
All the slates have been cleaned and it’s a brand-new year. Its going to be a heavy underdog season due to all the roster changes that occurred during the offseason. Which is exciting for individuals that bet on CS:GO. The five teams featured below are squads considered underdogs heading into 2019, but also have the ability to win any major tournament.
 
5. G2 Esports
G2 Esports enters 2019 with a relatively new roster. The all-French team of Shox, Bodyy, KennyS, Lucky, JaCkz, and head coach maleK has only been together since the end of November. Shox was named the in-game leader in November and helped G2 to a second-place finish at the PLG Grand Slam 2018 in December. G2 finished 2018 ranked No. 18 on the HLTV rankings.  
Lucky and JaCkz joined G2 after an impressive stint with 3DMax. While with 3D Max, the duo finished first at the ESEA Season 28: Premier Division – Europe and the ESEA Season 29: Global Challenge. 
Expect G2 Esports to make a deep run in the Katowice Major 2019 as they are a returning challenger. 
 
4. OpTic 
OpTic Gaming is the lowest-ranked team from the HLTV rankings to make the top 10 CS:GO teams to watch in 2019. However, the teams recent signing of 20-year old Refrezh can bring revitalization to the all-Danish roster. Refrezh stood in for Cloud9 at BLAST Pro Series: Lisbon 2018 in December and helped lead them to a third-place finish. Before Cloud9, Refrezh was with Fragsters, where he led them to three third-fourth place slots at DreamHack Open Austin, DreamHack Open Valencia, and Games Clash Masters.  
OpTic’s first test of 2019 comes at the Europe Minor Championship for Katowice 2019. Only two of the eight teams will automatically qualify, while third place gets placed in a play-in match. 
 
3. Cloud9
It’s been almost a year now since Cloud9 pulled off one of the most memorable upsets in CS:GO Major history. Cloud9 defeated FaZe in the finals at ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 in January to begin the year. However, the team started to struggle after winning the major and never earned a first-place finish for the rest of the year. 
Cloud9 added three new members to the roster since September. Flusha joined on Sept. 25, while KioShiMa joined on Nov. 17 and Zellsis joined on Dec. 29 as a trial member. Flusha and KioShiMa looked strong together alongside Autimatic, RUSH, and stand-in Refrezh at BLAST Pro Series: Lisbon. 
Cloud9 hopes to take their third-place finish in Lisbon and improved on that at the Katowice Major. 
 
2. FaZe Clan
It’s an exciting time in CS:GO to think FaZe Clan and Team Liquid can be considered underdogs. It just goes to show how dominate Astralis has been this past year. However, FaZe Clan is one of the very few teams that can go up against Astralis and beat them on any given day. They showed that ability at the IEM XIII Sydney finals match with a three-game sweep over the Danes in May. 
FaZe Clan has made some recent changes that have currently left them with only four players. The team moved away from long-time member Karrigan. Karrigan was first placed as an inactive member and has since been loaned out to Team Envy. Whether this change will affect the team has yet to be seen but its something worth keeping an eye on. 
FaZe’s first tournament of 2019 will be the iBUYPOWER Masters IV in Los Angeles. FaZe is a heavy contender to win the tournament if they can get past Astralis. 
 
1. Team Liquid
Team Liquid is going to have a new look to its roster in 2019. The North American team traded TACO to Made in Brazil (MIBR) in exchange for Stewie2k. Stewie2k joins the roster of Nitr0, EliGE, Twistzz, NAF, and head coach AdreN. 
Stewie2k is expected to help Team Liquid to get over the hump and be heavy contenders alongside Astralis and Natus Vincere (Na’vi). Liquid had a strong 2018 with plenty of top three finishes but always fell short at the end. Liquid faced Astralis in five different finals during 2018 and every time. The North American side came in second place.
Liquid’s first major tournament of the new year will be the Katowice Major 2019. They hold the current legend status, meaning they have a first-round bye and will play teams that advance from the returning challenges stage.
