Q&A with Lewis

What got you into writing about casinos?

"Growing up, I had a massive passion for video games and would frequently read and write reviews inspired by publications from the likes of IGN and Kotaku. Diving deep into the workings of what makes a game enjoyable and memorable has always been a fascination of mine and is something that translated seamlessly into the world of casino writing.

Pairing that with my love for a good deal and you've got a match made in heaven! I love nothing more than letting people know when a cracking deal is available and, with the healthy number of casino sites available, there's always something to look forward to."

What's the first thing you look for at an online casino?

"Brand identity is one of the main things I look at when evaluating any casino brand. This could be how hard they push bonuses, what player demographics they target, or even just how they present themselves through their content. There are tons of casino sites out there and finding the ones that speak to you on a consumer level is important to finding what fits you best."

If you could only play one casino game forever, what would it be?

"I've always had a soft spot for a good game of Baccarat! It holds a place in my heart as my first real exposure to the world of iGaming and was the topic of my very first casino article back in 2021. Deliciously simple rules that means you can be comfortable in a matter of rounds without the need for complex guides or charts."

What makes a good casino game in your opinion?

"As someone who has had hands-on experience with 1,000+ slots and casino games, bonus features and free spins modes are a primary factor in what keeps me invested in a title. When a casino game can innovate and show its creativity with a solid bonus, it can really highlight the passion of the studio and build the excitement as a player of what could happen next!

Some of my personal favourites include online slot titles like Gold Blitz and Dragons Clusterbuster or Evolution live casino titles like Crazy Time and Infinite Blackjack."

Lewis's top tip

"Understanding RTP and volatility is vital to making the most of your casino play. Do your research and experiment with different types of games to get a feel for what works for you and be mindful of sites that offer the highest available RTP for each game"

Lewis's favorite iGaming influencer



"VegasLowRoller (Daniel Manachi) brings a perfect blend of slots gaming knowledge with a fun energy that can't not make you smile. I especially like that he prioritises low stakes and does the research on the games to maximise feature hit rates, RTP percentages and the chances of activating jackpots. A perfect channel for the realist who doesn't expect life-changing values when they spin on their favourite games."

Find him on VegasLowRoller on Youtube.

What iGaming events does Lewis recommend?

There are tons of iGaming events taking place globally all throughout the calendar year and Lewis has attended a selection of them. For anyone wanting to learn more about the industry and keep informed on what's coming for the future, he recommends ICE London, iGB Affiliate London event and SIGMA Europe.

ICE London

ICE London

"ICE London is one of the biggest and most important iGaming conferences in the yearly calendar. ICE is where all of the biggest names come together to show off all of the exciting new products and services coming for the future. Think of it like iGaming's answer to E3!"

iGB Affiliate London

iGB Affiliate London

"iGB Affiliate London goes hand-in-hand with ICE and is a great place to network with the top affiliates worldwide."

SIGMA Europe

SIGMA Europe

"SIGMA Europe brings even more gaming goodness with plenty chances to connect with worldwide colleagues and partners in the iGaming space."

Lewis's casino memories

Best gambling experience

  • "I had a rare opportunity to participate in a Poker tournament with some of the top names in the iGaming space...and won! Putting my Poker skills to the test against some true experts and winning was quite a validating experience and definitely added some swagger to my step that evening."

Worst gambling experience

  • "After a fairly consistent Blackjack winning streak, I made the mistake of selecting Hit on a hand value of 18 while chatting to a friend. This not only busted my hand, wiping out all of the winnings I had just accumulated, but also got a very justified look of confusion from the dealer. The advice to take from this story is to always pay close attention to your play and don't underestimate the power of complacency!"

I've worked with some of the biggest brands in the industry and I use my knowledge to help players find the best casinos to fit their style of play. Having first-hand experience with 1,000+ online slots and casino games, I know what goes into making a memorable title for your "must play" list and how to maximise your casino experience.
