Dave Monk, 44

After more than a decade as an industry insider working for a number of ‘household name’ UK betting companies including Coral, Stan James and William Hill, Dave Monk founded his own financial consultancy specialising in advising online gambling providers. He trained as an accountant, and has had a love of betting and casinos since his student days.

Despite crunching numbers for casinos as a day job, Dave still hadn’t lost his love of playing as a punter, and he started to use his financial knowledge and industry contacts to sniff out bonuses, free spins, and deposit matches that could enhance his play and that he could pass on to friends and colleagues.

Although still working part-time consulting for a small selection of major casino groups, Dave now spends most of his time at real and virtual casinos discovering ways of increasing the bang for his buck through the best deals and bonuses.

Dave’s reviews are noteworthy for their fun readability as much as for their insight and independence. Using his industry contacts to flush out the best sign-up bonuses, Dave’s position as our Senior Casino reviewer lets him connect with fellow gaming fans and to bring them great offers from the world’s best casinos.
