If you are here, you probably want to know more about the author of this site. Well, here I am — my name is Oliver Smith, I’m 32, and I know a lot about casinos. Nice to meet you!
I got a degree at the University of Sydney in 2013 (bachelor of Advanced Computing, just in case you’re wondering), but I have never worked as an engineer or programmer. In 2014, I finished professional training courses in a Casino Training Centre in Gold Coast, and after that, I realised that it was exactly what I was looking for. I became a casino dealer.
I returned to Brisbane and worked for Eagle Farm Racecourse to 2016. I also worked for Treasury Casino — you’ve definitely heard about it if you’ve ever been to Brisbane. It’s the biggest gambling house in the city, and it’s really worth visiting.
But wait. “Why did you become a dealer after graduation with a good degree?” I’ve heard this question many times. “Both engineers and programmers earn more than dealers”, you might say. Well, yes. But it’s not that simple.
The thing is, I always loved casinos. From Treasury Casino in my hometown to a huge Crown casino in Melbourne — I still spent hundreds and (sometimes) thousands of dollars and I was always happy about it, even when I lost money, let alone those happy nights when I won. I ever played online, also when I had no money — God, save the free online casinos. During my time as a dealer, I understood much more about gambling — I can’t say that I became a world-class expert, but I know much more about casinos than an average Australian. 3 top casino review sites invited me as an expert, and I think that I’ve already helped at least a few thousands of players. But now, it’s time to move on.
Since 2014, I learned two very important things. The first one is: online casinos are better than land-based casinos. They are more comfortable, they are not so expensive, and they have cool extra bonuses — don’t get me wrong, I love land casinos, but no one can deny that they are not as convenient as their online counterparts. You don’t have to go anywhere. You don’t have to worry about a dress-code. You don’t have to do anything — you just sit in your chair, take a cold one, and start placing bets or spinning the slots. Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it?
But here comes the second thing I’ve learned, and it sounds like this: Not all online casinos are good, and not all of them are worth your time. Scam, rigged software, leaked personal data — if you are not an expert, you might have problems. I’ve had these problems myself — in 2012 I deposited to a scam casino (-$250), in 2015 and 2017 I had problems with withdrawing my winnings (-$300, only $150 returned). I always wanted to create a site that would help Australians to tell a good casino from a bad one. Now, I’ve finally created it.
