I was one of those guys. We have come a long way since then.
“Online casino bonus whoring” – as it was called, got less profitable profitable after I was banned from over 200 online casinos, so I took a break from online gambling, finished college, got an office job, you know, the works. However, after a long hiatus I returned to the online gambling scene, this time as an online gambling blogger (and as a player as well of course). I started playing online in 2006, back in college. It helped me pay for college.. However, over the years, my casino gambling blog gained some momentum.
However, that environment was perfect for online professional gamblers using advantage gambling techniques. I made around $10 000 in total playing online (which was quite a lot of money back then, in Eastern Europe). For two years I blogged only on the weekends and not many people took notice. The world of online gambling was quite different back then, more rogue casinos and less gambling regulations.
