CastleCasino.com, renowned in the industry for their live casino games, is sure this correlation is just a remarkable coincidence but, while James Bond may never have taken to the Blackjack table without a Martini in hand, it certainly looks like a sober head might not hurt your chances of success in the casino.
A CastleCasino.com spokesperson explained:
“Our figures reveal some fascinating information about payout rates by country, whilst we know drinking whilst at the tables is never a great idea it was interesting to see such close correlation. It seems that your lifestyle really can have some bearing on success rates at the online gaming tables.
“It’s extremely interesting that the top 5 worst performers correlate so closely with the top 5 beer-drinking nations. Drinking and gambling are never a good mix and we would never accept a player who shows clear levels of intoxication when talking with the live online dealers or our support team, our figures really seem to reinforce why that is necessary”.
The player data been compiled for the past 12 months, the figures show the percentage payout rates by country, using the http://www.castlecasino.com real money database including 60 different countries. Each country featured in the rankings had a minimum of 150 online players to make the list in order to largely discount random number fluctuations.
