Q&A with Tobi

What got you into writing about casinos?

“I've always been fascinated by casinos and iGaming, ever since I stumbled upon gaming in 2017. It's an industry that's constantly evolving, and there's always something new to learn and write about.

For the most part, I love how analytical you need to be as a writer in this industry. There’s always data to analyse and a new trend to look out for. It never gets boring! I also enjoy the challenge of creating engaging and informative content that players of all levels can resonate with.”

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

“When I'm checking out a new online casino, the first thing I want to know is, “What are people saying about them?” So I do a deep dive into the ratings and reviews left by people who have experienced the casino.

“The next thing I look for is a valid licence from a reputable regulatory body. This ensures that the casino is operating fairly and securely. I also take a look at the game selection, bonuses and promotions, and customer support options.”

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

“If I could only play one casino game forever, it would have to be blackjack. It's a classic game that offers a good balance of skill and chance, and there's always something new to learn and master. And nothing beats the thrill of making crucial decisions under pressure!”

Tobi's top tip

“When it comes to online gambling it’s best to start small and gamble responsibly—especially if you’re new. Set a budget, stick to it, and never chase your losses. There are also plenty of resources available online to help you learn more about responsible gambling.”

There are several great iGaming events held throughout the year, such as G2E Las Vegas, SiGMA Africa, and AGE Lagos. In Tobi’s opinion, these events offer a great opportunity to learn about the latest products and services, network with other industry professionals, and attend educational seminars.

G2E Las Vegas

“The G2E attracts thousands of industry professionals and enthusiasts every year. What excites me about G2E is the growth and innovation it fosters in the industry as well as the networking opportunities.”

Tobi's casino memories

Best gambling experience

  • "My best casino experience was winning two jackpots in a row on a slot machine. The first win was exciting enough. Risking it all for a potential failure was a little crazy. But when I made that second win? It was so worth it. That was one moment I’ll never forget."

Worst gambling experience

  • "My worst casino experience was losing a streak at a live blackjack table. It can be frustrating to lose, but it's important to remember that gambling is a form of entertainment and should be enjoyed responsibly."

Having my work featured on major iGaming websites has been a positive experience. Beyond the bylines, I'm also proud of the positive feedback I've received from readers. What I love about iGaming is the constant innovation and excitement of the industry. I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for iGaming.
