Winning – why is there no greater feeling?


Everyone can agree that there is no greater feeling than winning, right? That’s especially so if that win is gaming related. You spend hours playing your favorite new release, painstakingly analyzing each move, desperately trying to find the right combination that will take you to the next level, all in aid of finding that elation which only comes from winning. But, why do we need this feeling so much?

It’s a good question and one where the answer may surprise you. It’s all to do with the way that your brain remembers emotions and behaviors, which makes us want to recreate these feelings. Betway Casino has created a helpful infographic which clearly explains the process behind this, and they also throw in some thought-provoking facts which will also blow your mind. Did you know for example, that testosterone levels can increase by 33% prior to engaging in a competitive activity? It’s this sudden increase that can cause a rush of aggressive competitiveness toward your opposing player.

The infographic below includes all the details on what happens during this competitive journey.
