Contributors

CasinoTop10 has assembled a dedicated, hardworking group of individuals that have spent years of their lives dedicated to the online casinos, casino games and gambling in general. There’s not much they don’t know about the gambling world and if there is, they’re quick to learn. If you want the best news, information about casino games and online casino reviews, you need look no further. 

The writers, bloggers and columnists at CasinoTop10 are a weird bunch to say the least. Indeed, we must say there are very few people who find joy in the online gaming industry, however, we have luckily managed to find the few that do. 

Of course as you can imagine, they spend their lives in and out of casinos, arguing with people on blogs and forums whilst online and writing about the online casino world they love in far too much detail. And they all do this purely for one reason - to keep us entertained. 

Sunlight is foreign to them, they’re all addicted to breakfast cereal and lead-based paint and they all, despite their many differences, share a love for freshly squeezed yoohoo juice (we’re told it’s an intoxicating blend of strange fruits, unicorn horn and marmite). 

Their second language is sarcasm and their first is, according to them, utter brilliance, although this has yet to be fully proven. They wander around the office like confused zombies and only come alive when someone mentions the words, “casino”, “bet”, “gambling” or “free Red Bull”. They’ve been known to bet on everything from the color of Barney the Dinosaurs skid marks to how many times they can say “more money” before the boss man kicks them in their gentleman veg.

Despite their many faults, they are the best at what they do and despite having a penchant for licking crayons, will always offer up the best advice and the most useful tips, tricks and techniques possible. They know where the best casinos are, which games to play and how to play them. They’ll keep you up-to-date with all industry news and make sure you know how they feel about a particular subject, be it the online gaming restrictions in the US or the fall of Atlantic City casinos. 

Everything they write, offer an opinion on or argue about has been meticulously researched, which also makes them the most annoying people in the office and it’s not uncommon for people to cross the street in an effort to avoid a conversation with them.

Despite their many obvious faults, they’re a truly loveable bunch (we swear) and if you’re ever having a bad day, the only thing to do is ask them to dance. When “shaking their booty” they resemble a group of startled horses on a frozen lake. But, Karaoke nights are a big no no, last time they were handed the mic, three people had to be hospitalized and many a window replaced following a particularly terrible rendition of Miley Cyrus’ “wrecking ball."

Vegas Rex

The inimitable VegasRex could easily be the greatest blogger Las Vegas has ever seen. Very few describe life in Vegas as it really is – the unpolished version, what happens behind the facades. VegasRex did this. He put all the filth from the town he loves in the spotlight.

Rex was a Las Vegas resident and till the end of his days will always be a casino player, for the players! His unique perspective, controversial ways and tongue in cheek attitude make him a winner and a perpetually interesting read!

As a Las Vegas local, Rex has the inside track on Sin City and is never too far from some juicy gossip, interesting news and strange happenings. He’s got a sixth sense for anything gambling related and can always be found in, on or around one of the many tables in any one of Vegas’ many casinos.

His sense of humor has been described as … “eclectic” and he has been known to visit the karaoke bar or two where one will hear him belting out “Freebird” with gay abandon.

VegasRex began his life as an innocent blogger and quickly found fame with his unusual take on life in Vegas and the gambling scene that made the city famous. He has written about everything the city has to offer including the likes of: “Your Wallets Guide to Vegas”, “The Attraction of Uncertainty” and even about Danica Patrick’s brief foray into the glittery world of Las Vegas Showgirldom.

After many happy years writing for CasinoTop10, Rex decided to take a sabbatical from writing and went on the gambler’s version of a walkabout which saw him tour as many casinos in as many cities as his wallet would allow. We’ve received postcards from Monaco, Casablanca and even Berlin.

VegasRex was one of the most unusually brilliant writers we have ever had the good fortune to meet. We shared laughs, drinks and even the occasional apple pie and even though he no longer writes for CasinoTop10, his articles will be with us forever and can be enjoyed till this day.

If you want to know the ins and outs of Las Vegas from the eyes of a local and a legend, you’ll want to do yourself a favor and read some of VegasRex’s work.

George King 

"I’m a Writer, a Sailor and a purveyor of Facetiousness. Xbox Gamer and Book addict. Jazz and Blues fiend, appreciator of all good music. I’m a Lover of all things Football and Online Gambling. Island lifer, lover of the ocean, Flip Flop Fanatic and a Scooterholic. Quietly laconic, darkly sardonic and amazed by life, the universe and everything in it.

"South African born and England raised. I spent most of my life running around the bush and beaches of Africa but I will never forget the streets of Manchester, the beaches of Brighton and the lights of Bristol where I spent the early days of my youth. Now I live on the sunny isle of Malta where I spend my days relaxing in the sun, enjoying long days on the beach and as many sailing trips and scooter rides around the island as possible.

"I spend most of my time sitting in front of my laptop writing about the world around me. Upon finding my calling, I quickly realised that Confucius, that wily old wizard, knew what he was talking about when he said: “find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life”. This means I spend my days making things up. I get to wear out my fingers writing about anything that happens to interest me and can include anything from online gambling, gaming, sailing and the universe, and I have to say, there are few things that make me happier.

"A few of my favourite things, in no particular order: Manchester United Football Club, Fontaine Pajot Catamarans and Ben Elton Books. Whale sharks and free diving. Clive Cussler adventures and Terry Pratchett characters. History books and oceanographic studies because the wonders of the deep blue sea never cease to amaze me. 

"I currently write for Highlight Media in Malta, where I spend my days writing about the ins, the outs and the excitement of the online gambling industry. For some, it may appear to be a dull job, but they wouldn’t know about the wonders of playing online. You get all the thrills of a Las Vegas casino, from the comfort of your own home, the café down the road or the beach.

"Future prospects include the buying of my first house, my first yacht (even if it’s only a little one) and possibly the starting of my very own website. If I were to have one thing, right now that would make my life perfect, it would be my own column. Somewhere I could put my thoughts for the world to enjoy."
