Online Skill Gaming Catapults Gin Rummy into High Stakes
Gin Rummy is making a rise comparable to what was witnessed at the beginning of the online poker rage. According to GameAccount, skill gaming is starting to become very popular as a result of many bettors who are slowly becoming familiar with online gambling, or who fear reprisals from authorities in jurisdictions that ban online gambling. GameAccount says that Gin Rummy is especially taking off. In the past, the game would generate, on average, $25 in wagers per month from each player. Now, the game is bringing in over $50 per player each month. Average stakes are going over $10 a game, which does indeed sound more like a game of poker than Gin Rummy.
Skill gaming is even starting to attract mainstream online gamblers to its higher stakes games. For one, skill gaming is legal in many countries that look unfavorably on online casinos. Secondly, the competition is not nearly as fierce as it can be in the online poker room. Especially in the U.S. many would-be online casino goers are taking the safer route by indulging in skill games, which not only are fun and entertaining, but are now proving to generate substantial winnings. The skill gaming industry is already valued at approximately $270 million, and is expected to nearly double in just two years at the rate it is currently growing. s like GameAccount are excited to hear the news, and are doing everything they can to provide updates on their software, as well servicing their dynamically growing database of patrons.
