Welcome to my treasure trove of gambling insights! My name’s Jamie Hooper and I’ve been living, breathing and sleeping online gambling entertainment for the past 10 years. I’m a London-based gambling expert with a background in journalism. After working for many years as a writer, I stumbled across the wonderful world of slots and table games and I’ve been hooked ever since.
I’ve always loved risk taking in all its forms. It’s not for everyone, but I relish uncertainty more than most. Coming from a family of tradesmen, studying linguistics at Lancaster university felt like a huge leap into the unknown. It was a risk, but it felt like one worth taking. After all, fortune favours the bold!
I didn’t know it at the time, but my degree paved the way for my career as a journalist. After graduating in 2005, I started out by writing spec articles for anyone who would pay attention. I always found myself drawn to the subjects I “wasn’t allowed” to write about. The risk excited me; it wouldn’t always pay off but the times when it did made it all worthwhile.
My taste for throwing caution to the wind has led me down plenty of exciting paths in the past. As a gambler at heart, it makes sense that I would eventually wind up as a gambling expert! I played my first slot machine ten years ago when I was 28; I’ve been in love ever since. The world of gambling can be treacherous, but equally rewarding if you know what you’re doing. I like to think I’ve mastered the art of not getting burnt.
I love dedicating my time to writing about the world of gambling. The content you’ll find here is designed to give you insight into online gambling and how to get started. I regularly update my blog section with news, reviews and my takes on industry trends. If you love taking a little risk, then you’ve come to the right place.
