Interview with Kate
Q: How was it like growing up in the most popular gambling city of the world?
A: It was interesting and magical growing up in Las Vegas, the glamour, the casinos, the shows etc. everyday was like a party in Vegas but like many children that grew up in Vegas, we didn't let this get into our heads, we still focused on other aspects of our lives.
Q: Tell us about your biggest win?
A: I think it was $ 400. I won them playing slots at an online casino, I was not expecting it, it was a very nice and exhilarating experience.
Q: Tell us about your biggest loss?
A: I had a bad night at an online casino once, I lost around $ 600, which may not be much now, but then it sucked for me cos I am an average player.
Q: What is your role in OnlineCasinoRivals.com? What are your daily responsibilities?
A: I am the games specialist in OnlineCasinoRivals.com, you can also call me a games consultant, the go to source for anything involving casino games, I edit, supervise, write and contribute my input to any articles that involves casino games.
Q: What do other people who are outside of the industry think about your job?
A: It is funny, some don't understand what it means to be a games specialist for a casino website. They are always like "how can someone make a living out of writing about casino games? Who pays to do that?" I just smile and explain my job description in the best way I can.
Q: What do you think makes a great casino game?
A: A great casino game must have high definition graphics, nice animation and sound, interesting theme, nice bonus features and be mobile compatible.
Q: How was gambling like when you were a kid?
A: When I was a kid growing up in Las Vegas, the idea of gambling is usually associated to the various casinos we have on the strip, people sitting at tables playing games, the sound of Video Slots ringing in the background, the smell of money and dealers in their prim clothes. We have really come a long way in the gambling industry.
Q: What do you think the industry will look like in 5 years?
A: In the next 5 years, I believe there would be more casino games for players, more gambling opportunities, and more amazing technology would be introduced into the industry.
