About me

Greetings! I am David, the resident casino guy for nongamstopbetsites.com. You say I am quite the geek, as I have been playing all types of video & tabletop games from a young age.

I enjoy a wide variety of game types, ranging from fantasy ones like World of Warcraft, Dota, Diablo, Baldur’s Gate and Age of Empires to competitive shooters like Counter-Strike and Overwatch.

As for board games, I have played a wide variety of classic titles and RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons (duh). But my favourite gaming hobby by far is Warhammer 40k. I field over 5 full armies and regularly partake in my local club tournaments.

As for gambling, I started after a few sessions of poker with friends, which escalated to full-blown casino nights. Online casinos were the natural step after this, as the convenience is unparalleled, and the benefits with bonuses and offers are too good to ignore.

I hold an account in pretty much every online casino that I can sign up with and I have read thousands of lists with t&c’s for promotions. And while you can not directly compare normal games with casino ones, the RNG mechanic behind them excites me the same.

I enjoy sharing my findings and opinions with you here at nongamstopbetsites.com and I hope that my articles will enhance your casino sessions (and bankroll)!

Education and Professional Career

After high school, I went on to get an accounting degree. While a student, I worked a plethora of jobs to sustain myself, like catering, stockpiling warehouses and cashier. So you could say that I have seen what goes on in different industries.

Nowadays, I am a part-time accountant at a local law firm and a writer/reviewer for nongamstopbetsites.com.  

Why Did I Choose to Work in Gambling

I always blogged about my gaming interests, reviewing new releases or the new updates for Warhammer. After getting a taste of slots, I incorporated them into the blog as well. That’s how I came in contact with the rest of the team of nongamstopbetsites.com

Being able to work directly for something I am so passionate about is simply amazing. I did not directly choose to work in gambling, so to speak, but now that I started, I don’t think I am ever going to stop.

Areas of Expertise

With so many accounts created, Bonuses claimed, KYC verifications passed and money wagered, I can pretty much feel the vibe of a new casino right away. I know it’s weird, but I enjoy scrutinising the terms of a new operator in order to find out any unfair rules. And this can only be a net benefit to you dear reader.
