WHO IS ADAM AND WHAT DOES HE KNOW ABOUT GAMBLING?
Hi, I’m Adam. I’m in my early 30’s and I come from a small country lodged between mountains and sea – Slovenia. When I’m not gambling or fiddling with this site you can find me watching movies or playing basketball.
I started gambling in college, first with my friends and roommates just for fun on weekends. As I moved on from playing poker and blackjack for toothpicks to online gambling sites I made gambling my own sport. It was the time when the first more “advertised” sites began reaching my part of the globe. After a few years of playing around I learned enough to make this hobby my “afternoon job” for that little extra every month to make life cosier … for a student at least. I guess being a math student played a role in there somewhere as well. I kept this going for a long time (actually I never stopped to be honest) and during all these years I had the pleasure of trying thousands of different games and hundreds of casinos and betting sites.
Oh, I almost forgot, Bitcoins came in somewhere along the way too … I think it was around 2010 when I bought a few just for fun, I didn’t really know what they were back then. I forgot about them for a while until I ran across a casino promoting Bitcoin bonuses and I decided to give it a try. Gambling with Bitcoins had it’s ups and downs but I liked the fact that I could keep my bank account separate and my “gambling account” separate in form of Bitcoins. Just a way of organising my life I guess. And I continued to do the same to this very day. Everything I earned (or spent) including this website came from those first few Bitcoins. And here we are … ta-da!
First things first: this website is an affiliate website. That means I get some sort of commission from casinos if you decide to visit them and play through any of my links. You can think of it like booking.com for hotels except I’m gamblineers.com for casinos. The fact that I get commission doesn’t make your experience any worse. In fact more often then not it makes it even better. A lot of casinos offer me exclusive offers for all players who join them through me. Basically it’s a win-win-win situation. I help casinos get players and help you find good casinos, casinos offer you extra promotions and you help me as well by following my links.
However this kind of situation often leads players to believe that people like me become biased, untruthful or somehow misleading. So let’s be honest: everything listed on this site is here because I personally prefer it. I gain nothing if I push forward casinos which aren’t really good just because I can make a few extra $ for it. You liking the casinos you visit and deciding to stay or come back benefits me most and it’s the reason why I set up this website in the first place. So don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. If it’s listed here, it’s because I believe it’s good so you can sit back, relax, enjoy and hopefully reap the rewards of your labour.
++ the fact-oriented way of presenting casinos to you on this site pretty much takes any possible subjective opinions out of the game. If a casino is good, I tell you it’s good. If it lacks any features I tell you as well.
As I said in the beginning, the majority of my latest gambling experience has been through Bitcoin. And with Bitcoin even more than with regular currency I really missed someone telling me simply which casinos are good and have certain features or bonuses and which don’t. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of websites today which review casinos, list them and rate them. But everywhere I looked, I had to spend a lot of time searching for information, reading novel-sized reviews, going back and forth to compare casinos or games and clicking 37 links to get what I wanted. So I decided to put together my own website where I could present all the information the way it should be presented. After all if I had to do the research anyway, why not bring it all together so you don’t have to?
I was born and still live in Slovenia. It’s a small country between Italy and Croatia. The special thing about Slovenia is you can go from skiing mountain-tops to swimming the Adriatic sea in less than 2 hours. And if you look at our country on the maps it kind of looks like an open-mouthed chicken. Slovenia and Slovenians are simple, people say we complain a lot but in reality we don’t worry as much as we talk. We live relatively relaxed lives, I guess it’s our nature-filled country and the smallness of it to blame. To most people visiting Slovenia our capital looks like a suburb to a smaller city. No … like a small town on the outskirts of a suburb to a smaller city. If that makes any sense.
Anyway, I was first introduced to gambling in college. After college I worked as a bank analyst for 6 years. The job was ok but it wasn’t close to anything I could call passion or genuine pleasure. And since my gambling afternoons were keeping me company all along I finally decided to give it a shot and I started building this website. It took me quite some time, I pretty much built, researched and designed everything myself. I had some programming skills from college and my job and … ok, to be completely honest, I had some help with design because I guessed people wouldn’t be very happy with 13 different colors in the logo alone. Stick to what you know they say.
Now this site is my regular job. Everything here is my work, from content, web development, SEO, … I’m learning along with the process but so far it’s going ok. I strive to make this site as straight forward as possible. It’s my style, the way I think and what I think could help you the most. So welcome to Gamblineers, I hope you like the site and I’ll be happy to get any kind of feedback from you. Just the contact form below to help me make the site better. See you!
