    Default Wow!

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for responding to my post!

    Your qualification and what you do for a living is certainely right up there with the best of them and it sounds very interesting I might add! Great going...

    Apart from myself it seems a lot of professional people are conducting their own little portal casino operations now adays-just as a side-line. I'm a qualified anthropolgist/archaeologist who's got his own gold and diamond mining operation in West Africa, Sierra Leone and would be travelling back to the country soon to continue my mining operations.

    It is very interesting the level of people that find themselves part and parcel of the online casino industry today.

    Once again thanks Matt!

    Cheers

    Cass

    My background is in Sales/Advertising.

    Most recently I am a Transportation Manager. I get bored easily...so once I master an occupation I want to move on to something new. To bad this online business took such a dive...I might be ready to try retirement...

    This is an interesting thread.

    Mine is different. I am a stay at home mother. We moved in with my husbands unlce 7 years ago. He has a disability which means that he needs supervision, help with hygien, meds, cooking and above all companionship.

    They needed help so we came here. I look after him and make sure I am home for hime when he is finished his day programs.

    This has allowed me to be fortunate enough to be at home with all 3 of my kids (although some days it would be nice to work outside of the home for more adult conversations)

    The one thing that we are really blessed with doing this is my soon to be 9 year old accepts people as they are. She does not make fun of those who are different as I have always taken her down to the drop in center to meet otehr who have more physical differences than her uncle. She made a friend at school who was severly disabled and could not talk or walk and included him in every activity she participated in.

    In her eyes there is no difference which is a beautiful thing!

    Thanks for your interesting question, Cass.
    I was a software engineer, specialized in Java applications for mobiles, I had another experience in programming, but it was I like to say "was", because now I work only with my site. I've understood that it's more better to work as a programmer and as a boss for myself

    Great stuff Aksana!

    It certainely is far better working for yourself than working for a boss! In particular when you taste the fruit of all your hard work!

    Wishing you the best with all your endeavours!

    I would love to work for myself like aksana ! As of 7/1 my state passed a law that all residents must have health insurance. If not, they will get penelized at tax time. .. I know, shocker lol.

    So I am keeping my job at a Publishing Co for insurance purposes. It is very expensive to buy it on your own. It's a nice company and has been around over 100 years. They allowed me to go to 3 days a week instead of 5. Although I have to drag myself to the office it also gives me a chance to see coworkers and stay connected.

    Thanks for the post, I enjoy seeing the responses.

    Being a Tranportation Manager I assume entails a lot of responsibility! I thank you for responding to my thread!

    It certainely is a pity that legislation in the US pertaining to the online casino industry has a dire effect to online gambling across the globe, hopefully this would change within the foreseeable future.

    Cheers

    Kaus, way to go!

    I love to see people like you who are a quality human being. I'm a single parent father, and I it kills me to have to leave my son to work.

    This is like a hobby to help me deal with my insomnia. During the day I am a MD. before that I was a Mechanical Engineer in Florida (Go Gators!).

    Interesting post. Seems like we have everyone from diamond mind owners (wild!) to R&D specialist (Matt).

    It would have been nice to see some posts of people who quite their day job because casino portals were doing so well.

    I work as a medical transcriptionist from my home. I work for a medical transcription company with full benefits and can set my own work hours for the most part. I am on production pay so I can make as much as I want. I basically work 8 hours a day, as that is usually enough to meet my salary goal for the month. I mostly work in the evenings as I am not a morning person. I have been in this business for over 20 years and love it, and have worked at home for the last 15 years. It allows me lots of time to work on my gambling sites and keep them updated.

    Default Multimedia Graphic Designer

    I was making multimedia presentations for start up technologies. Until I be came an affiliate manager full time. It was very interesting being the first to see somebody else's ideas and having to be creative to bring out the best on cd format. In addition, I train hard to keep my fitness as a competing Triathlete.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

    Default Just my thoughts!

    Hi All,

    From the replies I've seen to date many people from all walks of life are involved in the Casino Industry one way or the other. These include, highly qualified and very competent individuals who have the drive and motivation to succeed in an extremely competitive and volatile environment irrespective of their circumtances. From mechanical engineers, software developers, medical scientists ...even ironmen!

    The main reason why I've posted this thread is to determine the level of competency of individuals that are promoting Online Casinos. To be honest, has exceeded my wildest expectations. In line with the above, this brings me to my question.

    Why can't Online Casinos be more accomodating in assisting webmasters of portal casinos toward the following?:

    1). Certain incentives to the owners of portal casinos after they have adhered to stringement measures/criteria imposed by the Online Casinos they're affiliated to. What type of incentives are we talking about here? A minimum compensation fee of $US30 per month paid to the owners of portal casinos.

    2). Assisting portal webmasters to improve/increase their PR in the various search engine as well as seo.

    Make no mistake, there are Online Casinos who reward their affilaites handsomely! But, I feel that Casinos should extend their assistance toward affiliates outside the ambit of commissions only...!

    In conclusion

    My intention is not to "open a can of worms" here, but just to air my views from what little knowledge/information I've gleaned from the Online Casino Industry to date. Given the competitive environment Online Casinos should realise that if they're to succeed the very key to their success in future lies in the way they treat their affiliates! Without affiliates very few Online Casinos would succeed!

    The point I'm tried to make here is, is that Casinos should take note of the amount of competent and qualified indivuduals that are promoting their Casinos and work out a compensation struture toward those ...

    Cheers for now

    Cass

    That was a very interesting thread you posted, I was always interested in the other lines of work other affiliates are involved in but have forgotten to ask.
