Simon’s Online Casino Blog

I’m Simon (full name: Simon András Péter, but if you are not from Eastern or Central Europe you won’t be able to pronounce it ;) , so just call me Simon), and you are on Simon’s Casino and Online Gambling Blog (online since 2012).

All of the content on my online gambling sites are dedicated to providing valuable, impartial and useful information to all online players. This is a one man blog, I’m the only author, and I do everything myself. This is my full time job for almost 10 years.

Whether you are a professional gambler with years of experience, or you are new to online gambling, I hope you will find something useful and interesting here. This website has been focusing on the different aspects of online gambling since 2012. Currently, this blog consist of 700 web pages (yes, it is a much bigger website than it appears at first).

Therefore, if you like the content don’t forget to bookmark this website to be able to easily access it later.

/Comment: If you bookmark the blog, it also helps the website to appear more in search engines. Therefore, I would like to ask you to please bookmark us even if you are not planning on coming back, it’s just a click for you, less than a second, but helps the website tremendously. This is an independent gambling blog, I can’t compete with huge casino companies (and their casino blogs) with a marketing budget of millions €. Thank you for helping a small, independent gambling blog!/

UPDATES:
UPDATE 2020: If you are new to this gambling blog it might be overwhelming at first. Just start with this: How to Maximise your Chances of Winning in Online Casinos, and if nothing else, learn and apply those tricks, you will have a better time gambling online. And if you are done with the basic tricks move on the the advanced methods in the advantage gambling section. Gamble responsibly, and most importantly, good luck!

UPDATE 2021: My New Year’s resolution for the website is to add as many videos, video tutorials, video guides as possible. The professional gambling techniques section already has many videos (all of the methods listed contain at least one video tutorial). I intend to add a video to every webpage, where it is applicable. Because, IMO, websites shouldn’t all just be text and pictures.

It should be a multimedia experience, with as many different types of content as possible (and I’ve been adding all sorts of interactive content for a while: there are many games (200+) you can play without registration in the so called “free casino” section, and there are various calculators here and there, e.g.: the casino bonus wagering and playthrough requirement calculator, a quiz here and there, e.g.: the problem gambling quiz, but more needs to be added definitely).

 

About Simon - professional gambler turned gambling blogger
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That’s me. Simon András Péter, a.k.a. SimonTheSorcerer – author, owner, one man blog machine.

A bit about myself: I’m the author of Simon’s Online Gambling Blog, there are no other authors: I write, put together, design everything here. I started playing online in 2006, back in college. The world of online gambling was quite different back then, more rogue casinos and less gambling regulations, less taxation. We have come a long way since then.

However, that environment was perfect for online professional gamblers using advantage gambling techniques. I was one of those guys. I made around $10 000 in total, playing online during college (which was quite a lot of money back then, especially in Eastern Europe). It helped me pay for my tuition back then (since then I have made much more than that).

Online casino bonus whoring” – as it was called (one of the many ways to take advantage of online casinos), got less profitable after I was banned from over 300 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). For years I blogged only on the weekends and not many people took notice. However, over the years my casino gambling blog gained some momentum. And here we are. Hope you enjoy your time here and find what you are looking for. By visiting this website you support an independent gambling blog, thank you and good luck.

 

About me:

  • Born: 1986-11-01 (yep, that’s Halloween, but we do not celebrate Halloween in Eastern Europe)
  • Sex: Male
  • Nationality: Hungarian, Eastern European, white
  • Living in: Budapest, Hungary
  • Education: College, Economics – Budapest Business School
  • Languages spoken: Hungarian, English and German
  • Ideologies: European-style social democracies, free enterprise, sustainability

 

Interesting facts about me:

I was born in a communist country, in the USSR (Hungary was communist till 1990), just shortly after the Chernobyl accident in neighboring Ukraine.
My parents were really poor and only had high school diplomas, and we lived in subsidized public housing.
I have learned to speak English when I was around 9, watching TV, Cartoon Network, which for some strange reason was available only in English (with no subtitles) in Hungary for years (Why? I still have no idea.).
I had to miss out one year to go to work abroad (in the Netherlands and in Germany, working in factories, sometimes 50+ hours per week) to get enough money to pay for my college tuition.
I studied in a German-hungarian bilingual high school, and then I studied Economics in English at college, which means elementary school was my last Hungarian-only school despite the fact that I never studied abroad.

 

Career, this is what I did apart from my online gambling activities:

2011 – 2012 ING Insurance (now NN) Intern, then briefly Junior Content manager – I started my career as an intern in the online marketing department of Europe’s biggest life insurance provider. Then, after my internship, I worked briefly as a junior content manager. I was responsible for all of the content on the company’s website (and the internal websites), which I managed, edited, uploaded, fixed according to on-page SEO factors, keyword research and the needs of other departments and supervisors. I learned to use two CMSs, basic online marketing and how to navigate the workplace environment in a multinational corporation (which is a skill in itself).

2012 (about 6 months) Freelance SEO – After I quit I needed to make some money and I had plenty of free time so I started doing SEO freelance jobs online. The pay was horrible, freelancers from developing countries bring the prices down extremely (even back in 2012 this was the case). The marketplace is full of cheaters and scammers. However, I did learn a lot about different ways to make money online and what works and what not, what is a scam and what is not. And I had time to experiment with a whole lot of these methods. Being an online freelancer is a horrible job and I did not really learn much about SEO or online marketing. Online freelancers are mostly hired to do various forms of spamming.

2012 – 2013 HigherClick Kft. (Online Marketing Agency) Online marketing professional, then Online marketing manager – I got lucky and landed a job in Budapest at a then startup online marketing agency run by a Scottish and a French guy working exclusively with English companies. This was a great job and I ended up staying here for almost two years. I learned a LOT about SEO and online marketing in general. We worked with huge US, UK companies (Fortune 500) but because we were contractors we could remain independent, flexible and innovative. We were really at the forefront of SEO and online marketing, and we made miracles happen. When I was promoted to online marketing manager I was able to delegate tasks to 15 people and managed a budget of about $50,000 monthly and was solely responsible for one of the biggest clients of the company.

I was hired when the company had only 5 employees and I watched the company grow to 30 full time employees and around 20 part-time employees. Without this experience I would not be able to make a living online as an entrepreneur/webmaster today.

2013 – 2014 Simon’s Online marketing Kft. – Startup online marketing agency – I quit and I started my own online marketing agency. I was really good at what I did and my prices were really affordable. However, SEO in a B2C agency format is not a good business opportunity for various reasons (ROI problems, constant algorithm changes, Indians bringing the price down, rampant outsourcing, scammers, absolutely horrible clients, complex on-page optimization made impossible by non-cooperative clients and lack of access to backend, more explaining than actual work etc…).

Yet somehow, I managed to grow my startup from a one man company to having 2 full time employees and 5 part time employees in just 8 months. However, I’ve burnt out and my websites (,which by this time I was developing for two years on the weekends, and on all my days off, the main one was the online gambling blog you are on now) started to bring in more than pocket change. I scaled down, and started focusing on my websites full time.

2014  – 2015 Simon’s Online marketing Kft. – Simon’s Blogs period – I was working full time on my websites and I was trying to grow them. I succeeded. However, I had 10 affiliate blogs at this time, and I couldn’t manage them on my own. I ended up hiring three people.

2015 – 2017  Streamlining – With 3 people working full time + me, making enough money to stay afloat was a HUGE issue. Even though I have managed to grow the websites and I achieved quite a lot, created 10 successful affiliate blogs from scratch. I still struggled financially, and the company survived from month-to-month. Stress was too much, I decided to restructure, and I slowly started letting people go (not all at once, I waited till they found better, or at least similar jobs, I cared about them) and I started deleting some of the blogs (including: Simon’s Legal Highs Blog, Simon’s Duty Free Blog, Simon’s Personal Blog, the old homepage called Simon’s Blogs, Simon’s Binary Options blog, Simon’s Online Marketing Blog or Simon’s Guide to Making Money Online, free bets sports betting blog, Spain travel Marbella blog, a 90s blog, live cam affiliate blog). I only kept two blogs, this is one of them.

2017 -> Gambling blog is the way to go – Slowly I let go of my other remaining blog, I just simply don’t have enough time. I work 10+ hours, and my blogs don’t make enough money to hire help. So I let the other blog go, and now this my only blog. In a way it’s a dream come true, but I hope one day I will make enough money to be able to hire a few people. But if not, then not, as long as I’m not part of the 9-to-5 rat race I feel blessed, and I’m grateful for what I have achieved.

I also wrote an article about the gambling industry, my take on online gambling blogging, online marketing, SEO in this niche, and what can you expect in terms of money, success.

 

Skills:

What I’m capable of: Basically right know I’m capable of building up a small B2C online marketing agency from the ground up and to do every type of client work that needs to be done, and also administrative/background tasks (accounting, finances, legal stuff, sales, hiring & training employees etc…) .

I’m also capable of planning, creating, managing and doing the content creation and online marketing tasks for an affiliate marketing blog myself if I have to.

Also, I’m great at coming up with great affiliate marketing ideas and creative online marketing solutions, which also work as a business (“also works as a business” means, it actually makes money, not just sounds good, really important skill, because everyone can daydream, but few people can actually come up with good business ideas). I analyze the market and find potential niches and adapt my ideas to the needs and opportunities of these niche markets. Then I make a detailed plan with a focus on ROI milestones and quantitative data. I also create all the actual content, the website, the web pages, custom graphics from the ground up, WordPress frontend, backend included (content manager level, I’m not a developer). And through various online marketing techniques I turn this fresh new website into a profitable business. Have done it before, multiple times.

Idea -> Plan -> Execution -> Marketing -> Profitable Business – I’m capable of doing any of these steps, or the whole project.

 

What are the things I’m really good at:

“Business thinking” (quantitative management, with a strong ROI focus) – that’s the only way to grow a small business.

 

What are my biggest weaknesses:

Every person has positive and negative traits. I’m no different. I have already written about what I’m good at, here is the other side of the coin: I have no patience for people, whom I deem intellectually inferior. I strongly believe in authoritarian, top down and control style management. This means that employees can comment, ask questions, make remarks, but the final say is always mine and I expect them to follow my instructions to the letter. I’m balancing this out with flexible working hours, telecommuting opportunities and by using performance management software instead of constant micromanaging.

What I’m working on right now: I’m trying to quantify the ROI of hiring one person and the turnover point. This is extremely difficult considering that almost every variable is subjective and unquantifiable. A mathematical analysis is impossible, but I’m trying to estimate milestones and to create a framework as best as I can.

Unrelated to gambling, but permit me to mention it here:

Please use https://www.ecosia.org/ search engine instead of Google. Unless you live under a rock you are probably well aware of how evil, unethical and problematic the giga-corporation that is Google (technically Alphabet, the umbrella company that owns Google and all their other subsidiaries and offshore companies). Tax evasion, offshore money laundering, election meddling, privacy issues, lies, constant surveillance for the US secret service NSA etc.. just look around online if you have doubts and don’t believe me. Do you really want to support that by using their search engine? Don’t! Use https://www.ecosia.org instead, they use the income generated from advertising (they make money the same way as Google or Bing) but instead of enriching shareholders and influencing elections they use it for planting trees worldwide and other environmental, eco-friendly initiatives. Make a change, by actually not changing that much, just using a different search engine. Thank you.

/Comment: And please stop using Google Chrome as well, unless you want Google and the American government, and secret service to always know your location, your search history and have all your passwords… Try Opera, it’s actually better, and has just as many plugins./

+EXTRA: Not really a full, separate section, but I put together a page, where I summarized everything I believe one must know about the shady Bitcoin casinos and Bitcoin gambling. They give online gambling a bad name, and Bitcoin only casinos (platforms which only accept bitcoin) should be avoided at all cost. They are very shady, unreliable and they were involved in many scandals.

 

Current project: Currently working on putting together IP range, location based geo-targeted landing pages for all 196 countries (+one for each US state, Canadian state, ). The goal is to make all pages adapt to the location of the player as much as possible by the end of 2021. You will see different, relevant, geo-targeted, adapted info on all 700 of the webpages, based on your location. It’s a lot of work, putting together all the global content blocks, it will take at least a year, hopefully not more.

Kiva – non profit

Non-profit: I’m active on Kiva.org, a non-profit lending organization that revolutionised non-profit charity giving, and the fight against poverty. Instead of simply giving people free money, it gives entrepreneurs, farmers and various other business owners in developing countries very favourable, not-for-profit loans, encouraging them to work and be fiscally responsible. This encourages entrepreneurship and hard work, instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get benefits and free money). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!

 

Gambling addiction

If you feel like you have a problem with gambling and it’s no longer purely entertainment and it causes you harm, emotionally and financially, then please seek help. The earlier you seek help the easier it will be to recover from problem gambling.

If you are unsure whether you are at risk of problem gambling you can find out by filling out this short quiz here.

 

Gambling guest posts

Yes, I do accept some. I get offers weekly. If you are an Indian or Pakistani with little to no budget, there is no point in contacting me. This is a real gambling blog, almost 10 years old, this is not a linkfarm. But I do consider real offers from real companies, or actual experts within the gambling industry.

How to contact me?

Try the live chat (bottom right corner).

I’m not putting my email address on the site due to the high amount of spam I usually receive. Also, serious offers only, please! Don’t waste my time with $10 offers, or similar.

This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!

    Guys on forums say there is no working roulette system, you
    can’t beat it in the long run, but i’m using bluehand roulette
    system for weeks and it earns me decent money everyday, maybe couple
    of weeks is not a long run, maybe i am lucky

    1. Yes, you are “just” lucky.(Congratulations! btw.)

      There is no working roulette system.
      The only way to make money playing Roulette is the advantage gambling method called “wheel bias” (wheel bias is not a Roulette system and it only works offline or at a live casino).
      You can find it here: Make money gambling with advantage gambling methods

    2. There is no such thing as a working system. You’re probably just lucky. I have tried systems for NetEnt slots & roulette and it just doesn’t work.

      @Simon I love your blog man keep it up

      1. Agreed, I have tried several “strategies” all the only result was lost money. Hope your luck continues tho. Simon, Great post man,.you must be a sorcerer or something

      2. Lance Richard says:

        They’re actually is a guaranteed way to make money with roulette. But you need a good teafxgree is bit of starting money. My brother is very smart to say the least and taught me his method. Though I only understood about half of it because I t’s a very complicated mathmatical
        Equal

  2. Emmanuella says:

    These are some great tips, thank you. It’s very annoying that most reviews are fake, it’s hard to find the best websites. – thank you!

  3. From online slots I prefer “Cool Wolf”. Amazing machine and lucky as hell. Also, there is a pattern, which lead to exploit.

  4. simon , i would think with any online casino the amount of players registered playing would be of significant importance to larger cash prizes. these seem to be very guarded secrets any estimates for spin palace casino?

    1. Only in case of progressive jackpots. But those are not closely guarded secrets at all.

      Just check out the progressive slots and you will see the current amount of the progressive jackpot (last time I checked, the highest one was around $2 million).

  5. It’s hard to open an online casino ?

    1. Yes, it is very hard and costs a lot of money.

      Well there are so called “turnkey casinos” , which you can open if you pay something between $5000 and $10000 for licensing and setup fees.

      But turnkey casino games are far worse quality than the mayor casino gambling software providers and will be very hard to market such a casino.

  6. What a great blog. We need more of this ethical approach of online Casinos. We have a dedicated page about the risks of gambling and addiction for the individual. We also can assure our gamers that the payment systems are 100% ethical and safe. Our site is protected by the lastest hacker protection. We want our users who play games online to be totally focused on the game and not distracted with concerns that they could be on a site without security.

  7. Great job on this guide. its very good and informative.

  8. Mully Aim says:

    These are great tips. I’ll be sure to pick up my freespins, and turn them into shiny dollars.

  9. Great blog, I did not know anything about next-gen casinos. They sound great. I’m only going to play in next-gen casinos from now on, too bad they are so rare.
    Thanks

    1. Thanks! Appreciated.

      Next-gen casinos are indeed the best. The reason why they are so rare is because each casino software provider accepts players from different countries.

      It’s really hard for online casinos to put together a good selection of casino games from different casino software providers and still be able to accept players from most countries.

      /This is exactly why there is only one US next gen casino./

      This is a bit complicated topic, but my next-gen casino guide is already under construction. You will be able find the details there, will link to it here as soon as it is published.

  10. Hey! Simon,

    Thanks for the information. I have just started getting into gambling and trying to understand the online casino landscape and what type of online casinos there are.
    I’m writing a blog on the online gambling industry and the involvement of IT (safety, security, software, mobile compatibility) in the industry. This helped me a lot.

    Thanks.

  11. Chloe Creek says:

    Great guide, I read that roulette had worse odds than blackjack, is that true?
    Im trying to get the best chance of winning

  12. In Poland, unfortunately, it is impossible to open a casino could ever change how government :(

  13. Hi Simon,

    Great site mate. Lots on great and informative info!

    Please would you be so kind and get into contact with me?

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Best Regards
    Jason

  14. I have been scammed badly the past few weeks, any way I can fight? anyway I opened a website about my case to make sure my fellow gamblers will not fall the way I did…any way to post about it here?
    http://www.globallivecasinoscam.com

    1. Sure. I have to admit I have never heard of this particular casino and I definitely do not endorse them.

      It’s best to stick with established brands, who have an established market presence.

      Also, you are from Hong Kong and to the best of my knowledge online gambling in Hong Kong is illegal (except Hong Kong Jockey Club, which holds a government-granted monopoly on all gambling activities).

      The fact that a casino lets players register from a country, where online gambling is illegal is always a huge red flag. These are often rouge casinos. Please next time don’t try online gambling if it’s illegal in your country and just stick to Hong Kong Jockey Club.

    2. Btw.

      “betting on even-odds bets is a system and it gives the player an edge on the house.”

      This is funny. :) It’s not true at all.

      However, because you are from Hong Kong means that you can not do anything about this and you can not sue them and you are entirely without any means of legal defense (because online gambling is illegal in HK, except for the government authorized channels).

      I applaud that you put your story out there and try to help as many people as you can. However, sadly you will never get your winnings, no matter the amount of bad publicity you generate for them.

    3. Sad to hear Johny. Thanks for opening up that website, that’s going to help lots of people to not fall prey.

  15. Hi, simon nice job you did here congrats!!! I wanted to know if you could recomend me any good online casino to play roulette that will pay me my wins thanks

  16. There is way too many casinos these days the “rogue” ones are becoming rife they pop up take your money then disappear!

  17. 100% NOT happy with Betboro casino! promised a bonus that i never got…..avoid

  18. WARNING WARNING BOVADA BLACKJACK HIGHLY RIGGED.. A CERTAIN WIZARD OF ODDS CHARACTER POPS UP ALL OVER GAME REVIEW ROOMS AND IS ALSO QUOTED IN MANY BLOGS AS HAVING ENDORSED THE CASINO. THE GAME IS SO RIGGED , ONE CAN CALL ALSO INTO QUESTION THIS WIZARD OF ODDS CHARACTER THAT ENDORSED BOVADA .. I NOW SUSPECT THE SITE IS USED AS A DOORMAT TO SCAM THE UNSUSPECTING TO USE BOVADA SERVICES….WARNING WARNING AVOID BOVADA BLACKJACK. MY OVERALL FEELING IS , IF THE BLACKJACK IS RIGGED, THEN SKIP THE SITE..PERIOD.

  19. These are some great tips, thank you. It’s very annoying that most reviews are fake, it’s hard to find the best websites. – thank you!

  21. UKcapitalguy says:

    It’s hard to open an online casino ?

    1. Yes, and expensive too. I will write a blog post about this soon. But you are looking at at least a $ million and it will take months.

  22. Anonymous says:

    Simon would you be interested to know in a casino admitting fault with their system which means thousands could have been duped out of potential winnings? Are you aware of any law in this area also please? Is there anything users can do? I will not name the casino until my case with them is resolved however fault has been clearly admitted.

    1. A casino can not operate without a gambling license, so if this is true I would suggest contacting issuer of their gambling license. They will investigate this and they will be able to help you further.

  23. Online Lottery Shop! says:

    Your blog is awesome! I finally have found a place for all of the gambling info that I need! I would really like you to contact me, i have a website somewhat like yours and would love to make an interview with you and publish it on our blog!

    1. PM sent. Thanks for the opportunity, I’m definitely interested. We’ll talk more privately.

  24. I agree….I love to gamble online. I been doing this for some time now. You have to research the company before you play for money, security payouts etc. I only have one that I play at right now. But I will post anymore good ones I find.

  25. Recent experiences with Bovada do not add up to online recommendations I see. They are very deceptive in there communications. Telephone reps unprofessional and not honest with users. Not paying out withdrawals as offered and using different currency exchanges in there favor on account funds

    Would not refer them to anyone

    1. Yes, I agree. Bovada was removed from the website 2 years ago for similar reasons you mentioned.

  26. These are some great tips, thank you so much! It’s very sad that most reviews are not true, it’s hard to find the best websites. Glad I found yours!
    Website

  27. If a person wanted to sell art pictures on line. Take a portion of the sales and randomly select customers for a cash prize. Would that be considdered gambling ?

    1. That’s a raffle, it depends whether raffles are considered gambling in your location. In most, a good 70% of countries, it is not considered gambling.

  28. The post really has all but can you correlate little more about the best sought of tactics…

  29. Hi Simon,
    I’m trying to find any information how to apply to the Spanish gambling licence but I cannot find anything.

    Do you have any suggestion?

    Thanks for your help
