EXPERTS What type of player are you? 3 weeks ago Samuel Post Views: 86 Gambling has been a popular pastime activity for centuries now. Apart from offering unmatched entertainment, gambling also allows people to make huge wins that they could never imagine. But wait a second! Do you know the type of gambler that you are? For starters, defining yourself as a gambler can help you set goals and be successful in this somewhat risky industry. So, this article will take a brief look at the different classes of gamblers and help you select the right one. Recreational Gambler This individual joins the gambling industry strictly for fun. In other words, he or she has no real expectations of scooping a win. The majority of gamblers fall under this category. They play their favorite table game or slot machine with zero attack plans. For example, if they play slot machines, they don’t give a hoot about the house edge or variance. All they care about is the adrenaline and fun. But that’s not to say that these players don’t like to win. In fact, most of them do win sometimes. That’s because casino games are games of chance. So, if you wake up on the right side of the bed, the lady luck might smile on you. In the incredibly unpredictable world of online gambling, it’s best to operate under this group. Remember that the house always wins at the close of the business day. Professional Gambler This group consists of the minority. As said before, it’s almost impossible to beat the casino at the end of the day. Although most people try to use gambling as full-time employment, most fall back to the recreational category. To be considered a professional gambler, you require strict discipline, consistency, and money management. In short, it isn’t fun being a professional gambler. Another reason this category is so small is that you may need a big budget. Professional gamblers cannot miss betting even for a day. In return, this can eat up a chunk of their overall bankroll. However, you can build your bankroll by exploiting bonus features like free spins, cashback, and bonus money. All things considered, a pro gambler will know what precisely to look for when playing and take full advantage of it. Heavy Gamblers Heavy or serious gamblers play with money that they are comfortable losing. They always have a bankroll for betting, which is very important in this industry. Interestingly, heavy punters don’t borrow money to gamble. They simply love betting, and that doesn’t affect their personal life. Also, they spend enough time with their families. However, most heavy gamblers take this pastime activity as an integral part of their lives. They usually miss it when they avoid betting for a while, which is the exact opposite of recreational gamblers. In the end, some of them suffer from gambling addiction. The Minor League Gambler Finally, minor league gamblers are individuals who bet for entertainment but think there is a chance to win real money. These gamblers do a lot of research on the casino or sportsbook odds. As expected, they research which casino games pay out more by comparing percentages or side bet odds. In most cases, a minor league gambler wouldn’t win a lot in the long run. However, they deplete their bankrolls a little bit slower than recreational bettors. Although most online casinos love these players, they like recreational customers more. Conclusion As with all groupings of people, a gambler can’t fall in the middle of these four categories. And while there isn’t any good or bad category, each has its pros and cons. In an ideal world, you should play the games just for fun. Anything else is a bonus. This way, you’ll avoid heartbreaks that come with losing a bet. Source: onlinecasinorank.org SamuelI am a journalist specializing in gambling in Africa and around the world.
