Daniel Greenberg - Founder, Chief Editor
Daniel was born and bred in Newcastle, UK. He grew a fascination for sports at a young age and grew up to love and be a strong supporter of his home club - Newcastle United, when he was a teenager, he held a season ticket and attended each and every game of his beloved team. His biggest passion was always sport, especially football, he even tried training with and joining the football team of his school but unfortunately, he was never good enough to become a professional player. In his own words,
After I was not shortlisted to play in the school team, I knew that I was not born to play on the pitch, I was in fact fascinated by another aspect in the sports industry
He knew then that he wanted to be very close to the sports industry so since he has a flair for writing and loves commenting on sporting related issues, he decided to write about sports. At the age of 18 he moved to London where he started studying sport journalism. At this time, he was also working part-time as a freelancer. He was writing articles, blogs, news for various media outlets and magazines. At some point he shifted his focus and started writing more on sports betting and casinos online. And this was his very first encounter with the online casino world.
In a short while, Daniel got very intrigued by the casino industry and wanted to learn more about the industry. After his graduation at the age of 22, he got his very first full-time job in an online sportsbook as a content writer. At the age of 25, he moved to Malta where he was working for various online casinos, where he worked as both a writer and a marketing manager. Within 10 years in Malta, he learnt everything about online casinos and became an authority on the online casinos subject.
Daniel enjoys playing slots and Table Games every now and then. He founded Oonlinecasinorivals.com in November 2016 to be a guide and an authority on anything online casinos related. He was working alone at the start of his establishment, however as the website grew and readers base increased, he started expanding his team. Nonetheless, as the CEO and also chief editor of the website. He always gives the last touch to all content pieces and makes sure that they are on point, interesting and educating for readers.

Q: When you are a kid, did you envision yourself doing this?
A: Not exactly, I have always been involved in sports, though I didn't know I would be involved with casinos as a content editor, but right from the beginning I always knew that I would be engaged in something related to sports, gaming or writing.
Q: What do you like about the industry?
A: The casino industry is a multibillion-dollar industry which keeps growing everyday because it caters for the entertainment needs of people especially the online ones which allows you to play games without the necessity of going to a land-based casino. The recent innovations in the industry are top notch and amazing, games are not what they used to be when I was a boy, the industry is growing rapidly and that's what I love about the industry.
Q: How do you think this industry will look like in 5 years?
A: In 5 years, time, more innovations would have been introduced into the casino industry, casino games would be more accessible, there will be increase in graphics definition, etc. Ten years ago, we didn't have casino gamification, now it is everywhere!
