As we mentioned in our previous blog post, we did a survey based on the popularity of poker and it showed that 7 out of 10 people reported that poker was the very first game that came to mind. The type of people we questioned were both male and female, half of which have gambled, whilst the other half have never even stepped into a casino. In both categories, the majority said poker is the first game they would play and the first game that came to mind when asked to write down what game comes to mind when they think of gambling.
The survey showed that only a minority of 3% over-all, mentioned other gambling games. Two out of the three said Blackjack, whilst the remaining one participant said they don’t know any gambling games apart from roulette.
Surveys and experimental research are always great ways to get as true as possible results and feedback on whichever variable is being tested. In our view, this survey showed that poker is by far the most popular casino game around. This does not mean that roulette, craps, blackjack, baccarat and slots are not popular casino games, it just means that the majority of people associate the word ‘gambling’ with poker or vise versa.
So there you have it, we hope our findings have given readers a little insight and perhaps encouraged all of you to perform your own research on the topic of gambling and gambling games.
