Kevin Oldroyd Author

Kevin Oldroyd is an international gambling news and sports author for
GamblingSites.org. While studying in college, he got his roots in professional
writing while working for the ARVC as a marketing specialist. Eventually, he was
offered a role as a content creator for a significant affiliate marketing
company in Budapest, Hungary. Here, he shifted his focus to the gambling
industry and began writing pieces on gambling news and sports betting
predictions. Today, he has thousands of articles published, most of which focus
on internet gambling.

Having lived in several different countries, including France, Croatia, and
Hungary, Kevin enjoys writing about updates to international gambling laws. He’s
also a hardcore mixed martial arts fan and enjoys offering expert betting
predictions for fight cards taking place in Asia, Europe, and the United States.

Kevin has an informative, upbeat style of writing that helps readers
understand changes to gambling laws in the easiest way possible. He focuses on
finding information that major media outlets ignore so that readers always know
what’s happening in the gaming industry. As someone who’s worked in the
marketing industry for years, he’s also interested in offering the best gambling
deals and betting tips for fans of both casino and sports gambling.

As a resident of Northern California, Kevin loves spending time exploring and
hiking through the mountains. When he’s not spending time outside, you can
probably find him reading up on the latest MMA news and watching big fights.
He’s also known to play a few hands of blackjack from time to time inside the
many tribal casinos spread around California.

Kevin also takes any opportunity he can to travel. When he has the time,
he’ll jump on a plane to visit (and perhaps write about) different cities around
the world.

His goal is to continue working as a content creator with a focus on the
gambling industry. Online gambling is growing more popular around the world.
Many countries are beginning to embrace the gaming industry, including the
United States, where sports betting is growing at an unprecedented rate.

Make sure to check out some of Kevin’s articles today. If you’re interested
in changes to gambling laws in your state or country, he’ll probably have
information on it.

If I’m going to gamble, I tend to stick with blackjack and betting on MMA.

How Many Hotdogs Could You Eat in a Contest?

If I was really, really hungry I think I could post some solid numbers. I’ll
say six before the ol’ stomach gives out.

I think starting a conspiracy that the government hides the hidden health

start eating their lawn…
