Meet Our Authors - Michael Stevens

Michael Stevens

I’ve been an author for GamblingSites.org since early 2016, with a concentration on
gambling. My expertise on all things casino and sports betting hail from my
humble beginnings in my home state of New Jersey. I first got into writing
during my college years at Rutgers. While I started as an Accounting major, I
switched to Journalism during my sophomore year, and it was only a matter of
time before my betting interests and writing skills converged.

While I currently reside in middle-of-nowhere California, I’m quite glad to
be within a closer vicinity to the entertainment and gambling mecca of the
country-Las Vegas. I currently live with my wife, our dog, and two cats that we
rescued. Most days, you can probably find me slumped at my IKEA desk with a cup
of coffee, or planning my next trip to the Sin City.

Currently, my favorite topics to write about for the site include football betting, casino sites, and casino games like:

Once in a while, I do like to write about video games and esports. I guess you can say
that my interests cover a pretty wide range, and I like to wear many different
hats.

I’m pretty eager to share a lot of my gambling experiences with those who
love it as much as I do. Sometimes, I’ll share a thing or two about
cryptocurrencies and how they fit into the gambling world. The Accounting major
in me hasn’t entirely left!

As someone who has been writing professionally since 2011, I do think that my
writing is informative and delivers a lot of helpful information for other
online gamblers. My writing style will vary depending on what I’m writing that
day, but it always comes from a place of passion and enthusiasm for both
gambling and sports betting.

Apart from writing, I am also very passionate about traveling. Some of my
favorite places I’ve visited include Big Sur in California, Montreal in Canada,
and the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. And while it’s not the most popular, I still
consider Atlantic City a piece of home and recommend everyone to go at least
once.

Sad Realities of Blackjack

Blackjack used to be one of my favorite casino games as a young gambler and
it was fun to revisit it for this article. It felt like a harsh expose
on a game I once loved. Not to mention, I had the chance to drop some serious
knowledge and a few opinions too.


Low-Risk, High-Reward Gambling

Isn’t that what everyone wants? In this article, I draw the parallel between
gambling and business as an experienced gambler myself.
