Katie Barlowe

Katie has been with us since 2001, turning her talents from the croupier's table to a Casino.org office desk. As a grad student she worked weekends in an Atlantic City casino, going on to become a full-time industry expert! She's always up to date with eCOGRA and GLI testing standards, giving her a methodical edge to understanding great gaming software. At HQ she leads the Casino Game Quality Assurance Team, who are instrumental in the review process. However, her passion for travel means she is frequently abroad hunting down the best casinos on the planet. When she isn't jet setting, Katie lives in Florida with her husband and her dog, Bella.
