These Are American’s Favorite Casino Games

I love a good survey. Today’s question from the American Gaming Association is a simple one.

What’s your favorite casino game?

  • slots 48%
  • blackjack 16%
  • none 14%
  • poker 6%
  • roulette 5%
  • video poker 4%
  • craps 4%
  • sports book 2%
  • baccarat 1%

These results are from casino customers across the country. Since slot machines and video poker are combined in revenue reports this almost makes perfect sense.

The only minor surprise is that poker sneaks in with 6%. If it wasn’t such a popular home game I might be more surprised.

What do you think of these results?

Why Do People Visit Casinos?

I love a good survey. Today’s question from the American Gaming Association is a simple one.

“Why go to a casino?” Here are the results.

  • 26%, primarily to gamble.
  • 24%, primarily for entertainment.
  • 24%, mostly gamble, but also entertainment.
  • 22%, mostly entertainment, but also gamble.

These results are from casino customers across the country so this isn’t much of a surprise. I suspect the answer would be slightly different for people visiting Vegas.

I’ll share more results from this survey throughout the week.
