Education and Experience
I’m happy to say that I studied English Language and Literature and got my BA back in 2014. These studies perfectly suited my love for the English language but also for reading and developing my writing skills.
I continued my formal education to get an MA in Management in 2018, which helped me in multiple ways, including establishing my content agency content365.me. I’m currently enrolled in a Leadership and Management Academy because I strongly believe people should always learn and improve their skills.
In 2014, I also got my first full-time job as an iGaming writer. That’s when my story in this industry began and has been going strong ever since. I’ve witnessed plenty of misleading and unfair working practices, which inspired me to start my own company and work on my own terms.
I accept full responsibility for the content I provide and understand the dangers of online gambling when done irresponsibly. That’s why I choose my projects very carefully, and that’s why I was happy to join the CasinoDeps team as a contributor.
What Motivated Me to Develop My Career as a Gambling Expert?
I discovered iGaming by chance and stayed in the industry by choice. When I started my career in the field, I was surprised by the tons of false and misleading articles. You’ll find people promising you winning strategies, guaranteed payouts, hitting jackpots on pokies, and whatnot.
Many such articles completely disregard responsible gambling or how it impacts their readers’ lives in the long run. This concept bugged me because not only did it put readers in danger, but it also ruined the reputation of the entire industry.
So, I wanted to do things the proper and honest way. That’s why I’m always personally fact-checking anything I mention. I don’t offer false promises to my readers, and I always tell the truth, even if it’s not nice to hear. I want to believe that I’ve helped thousands of people make better choices and enjoy this amazing activity responsibly.
Basic Recommendations for Our Readers
I’ve been invested in online casinos, pokies, games, features, and strategies since the first moment I discovered iGaming. Over the years, I’ve noticed some tips that will help anyone play responsibly and safely.
- Choose Only Licensed Casino Brands
Playing at licensed online casinos is a must because that’s how you get the highest protection as a player. Licensing authorities and independent dispute resolution bodies will always provide their support if an issue arises.
- Play For Fun and Avoid Chasing Losses
Gambling is and should always remain entertainment. Unless you’re a professional gambler, you shouldn’t see this activity as a source of revenue. Instead, try to enjoy playing your favourite pokies with a preset spending budget. Never play under substances, never play if you’re emotionally unstable (angry, sad, etc.), and never chase losses.
Milena’s Responses to FAQs
Where can I find articles related to online gambling written by Milena?
Since you’re already here, you can check some of my work right on CasinoDeps. I also have a personal website as well as a Quora profile where I share some personal tips and tricks. If you’d be interested in more specific iGaming industry info, I invite you to check out my book on Amazon.
What are Milena’s personal gambling preferences?
I love online pokies, especially the new and modern-looking ones. I’m into cool visual details, storylines, and creative bonus features. A personal favourite has to be Star Guardians by Evoplay, which is the world’s first RPG pokie with manual play and a first-person shooting option. It resembles a video game, and I find that fascinating. I also enjoy scratchies and play the lottery weekly.
How to make sure that online casino games are fair?
Luckily, licensing and auditing bodies didn’t leave this to chance, and there are plenty of ways for players to know they’re in safe hands. First, check licensing and certification; both signal fair games. For instance, eCOGRA, iTech Labs, and GLI are some testing organisations that report on game fairness and payout rates. Also, check the game provider, as established brands like Play’n GO, Relax Gaming, and Pragmatic Play all have 100% trusted games and software.
