Q&A with Adam

How did you get your start in iGaming?

"I moved to Barcelona in my mid 20s without a job or plan, so I started freelancing in social media management and copywriting. Then when I decided to stay in the city long term, I wanted to look for a permanent job. I applied for a content position with a company called Blexr, which worked in iGaming.

I was excited because I thought I was a great fit, and I was always interested in casino games and especially sports betting. When I joined Blexr, I loved the fast-paced nature of the industry, and getting to research and write about things I was actually interested in was a huge bonus."

What are some key things you look for in an online casino?

"For me, the most important things about an online casino are trust and reputation. So, firstly, I would look at the licenses the casino holds. Is it from a reputable and trustworthy commission?

I would also look at what real players are saying about their experiences. Checking Reddit is a great way to find out what people really think about any business, and casinos are no different."

What’s your favorite casino game?

"I love poker, but it’s a slow burn, so I'd have to say my favorite is roulette because of the speed, drama and anticipation. I’ve had some amazing moments with friends playing in casinos, hitting the number we needed and celebrating together.

I also like that it’s a bit less pressure than other casino games because it’s just you vs the casino. In poker, you play against other people, and in Blackjack, you work together with other players. With roulette, it’s just you against the casino, one spin at a time." 

Adam's top tip

"Make sure you are comfortable with the game you're playing and fully understand the bets you are making. If you're unsure, search for a guide on how to play the game and you'll have a lot more confidence and fun whilst playing."

Adam's areas of expertise

Gambling is a highly complex industry, and if you work in it, it’s important to be across everything. So, while Adam has knowledge on all areas of iGaming, he’s particularly clued up on: 

Different types of odds and bets

Different types of odds and bets

Growing up in the UK, putting an ‘acca’ (accumulator or parlay) on football or betting on the grand national was the done thing, so without trying he learned how to read fractional odds and understand different bet types. When he started working in iGaming, he added to this knowledge by reading up on different types of odds and bets around the world. So, if you want to know how to read decimal odds, or understand what an outright bet is, Adam is your man.

Adam's casino memories

Best gambling experience

  • "I went to Las Vegas when I was 21. I wanted to experience everything the city had to offer, and of course a big part of this was the gambling. Sitting at one of the main roulette tables for the first time at the MGM Grand is a moment I’ll never forget."

Worst gambling experience

  • "I started playing casino games online whilst at university. Me and my friends would sit in our dorm rooms and each deposit £10 or £20 and play a few hands of roulette or blackjack. I joined a new site and gladly took the welcome offer without thinking. I then managed to win around £100 and decided to cash out. Unfortunately, I made the rookie error of not checking wagering requirements, which were extremely high. I messaged customer support when I couldn’t withdraw my winnings and they explained the situation. I didn’t manage to meet the wagering requirement, but I learned an important lesson!"
Quote

Throughout my career I’ve learned that research is one of the most valuable tools we have. I have worked in lots of different fields and know how to find the information I am looking for, and I can now share these insights to help players make better choices.
