Is it teething time for your little one?
Mums who have made big in the Gambling Industry
Gone are the days when gambling and casino were considered only for men. Since the last century, many women have really made fortune and quite change the perspective as well as scenarios of the gambling industry. Big names like Marian Ilitch, Poker Alice Tubbs, Pansy Ho, Carlotta J. Thompkins A.K.A Lottie Deno, and several others have really made us think that women can have a very special place in gambling industry whether as an entrepreneur or a player.
Most of the games in the world are dominated by men and gambling is one of the games mostly appealed by the men. But as the times have changed, women have proved that they can change the wave and make their place in every field. So, here are some women or we would rather say mums, who are driving the gambling industry by putting their body and mind.
Vanessa Selbst
Vanessa Selbst is the best female poker player of all time. The casino is often considered as a male-driven industry and women are shown beside the men just smoking and drinking in fancy clothes. In recent times, Vanessa Selbst is a popular name in poker. She is depicted as the most popular and successful female poker player in history. Well, the 35-year-old poker player has quit professional gambling and now she has become an investment analyst. Yes, she is implying her strategic mind and intelligence in a different type of gambling. A few years ago she married her long-time girlfriend, Miranda Foster. She is the mother of one and living mum’s life. Even though she quit the gambling industry, she will always be known as the first female poker player to win 3 World Series of Poker bracelets. This mummy can really be the inspiration of lots of women out there who want to do big in gambling.
Well, in recent times, the gender gap in casino industry visitors has been narrowed down by online gambling. As online casino sites are very easy and convenient that they can be accessed anytime and anywhere regardless of the gender of the players and mums are really liking free bingo games to play on the internet. Land-based casinos are always open for women, but the advent of online casinos is a welcoming opportunity for all the women who want to make big in the gambling industry. Vanessa is a professional player who used to play in some of the biggest casinos in the world, but new mums can start soft with online casinos.
Denise Coates
If you have a little knowledge about the online gambling industry and online casino then you must be familiar with Bet365. Did you know Bet365 is founded by a female entrepreneur Denis Coates? Denis is one of the highest-paid females in the gambling business even she is paid three times more than Tim Cook, Apple CEO. She is the mother of 5 children including 4 adopted ones. Denis Coates bought the domain name of this popular online gambling site from eBay for around $25,000.
