Have you ever wondered which games are most popular in different countries? That is incredibly difficult to say, but we do know that certain types of games are quintessential to certain countries as they are so widely played that they begin to have a place within the country’s culture and national entertainment choices. Today we will have a look at the gaming map of the world and see which countries are represented by which games.
England – Bingo
There is one thing that the English like as much as a good cup of team, and that is a fun game of bingo! It has long been a favorite game among the British. And while many people still regularly attend live bingo games, there are a growing number of English people who unfortunately do not have the time to travel to a local live bingo evening. However, luckily nowadays there is a great alternative to attending a live bingo game –now you can play it online on various sites that offer great games. They also have cleverly built-in chat features that allow you to communicate with other players, thus bringing the social element of it to life online.
United States of America – Poker
If there were to be a single game that encapsulates what America is about it has to be Poker. Obviously, the tie between Las Vegas and poker is clear. But otherwise, poker is a hugely popular card game within the United States, and even those who do not play themselves will often watch the highly anticipated screenings of the WSOP championships.
Macau – Baccarat
Macau is the Las Vegas of Asia! And if you are visiting one of the luxurious roadhouse resorts in Macau, you will probably find yourself playing some Baccarat. Baccarat is without a doubt, the game of choice in most roadhouses in Macau. While it is played in other countries like American and England, it is not nearly as popular as it is in Macau. Baccarat is a really easy game to play too, so you do not need to worry about a steep learning curve if you are a beginner who wants to learn! The game is very popular, in part, because it has a relatively low house advantage of less the 1%.
When it comes to games, the Chinese are definitely Keno fans through and through! Keno is a game that was first started in China. In fact, the revenue made by the government from the lottery-type game helped build the Great Wall of China. Keno is, therefore, a good choice of game to represent the people of China. Nowadays, it is played worldwide at many roadhouses. It is known for being a game of chance that has a higher house edge than many other games. With a large range, the house edge can be as little as 4% or even greater than 35%.
