May 5, 2005 (London, UK) – In the first survey of its kind, online casino Slotland has released the number of working mothers who gamble on the internet. Having released last year that 60% of its players were women, Slotland’s data investigation team undertook a customer survey to find out exactly what its female players were doing when they were away from the slot machines.
The study found that a majority of its female gamblers (37%) did indeed have children, and that 18% of them were working as well as raising children under the age of 18. The study also concluded that the times that mothers play online coincide with the times children are at school, or have gone to bed. ‘There are clear spikes in traffic, geographically segmented, during the hours children spend time in school. We have always suspected that this was a time when housewives had a spare 45 minutes to gamble online, and this study confirms our suspicions,’ said Hannah Morante spokesperson of Slotland.
Working mothers however demonstrate a different pattern of play from housewives. They tend to play late in the evenings, after their children have been put to bed. ‘I usually play for a few hours after my two boys have gone to bed,’ said one working mother and Slotland player.
In celebration of its newly discovered mothers, Slotland is offering special cash bonuses and gifts to players over the North American Mother’s Day weekend. ‘Once you identify your audience, the data is useless unless you do something with it,’ continues Morante. ‘So we have decided to reward one of our biggest player groups (mothers) by offering them extra rewards on this Mother’s Day weekend.’
Established in 1998, Slotland is renowned for its fairness, security and sincerity. Slotland’s progressive jackpot is currently won on average every six weeks and usually stands at over $100,000, making it one of the most frequently won jackpots on the Internet.
Slotland offers its customers a unique slot machine experience and ensures their customers experience long time play with a 98% certified payback. Since 2004, the company has proudly supported the Canadian curling team, Team Slotland.
