About Author: Dmitrii Barca
Hello everyone! My name is Dmitrii and welcome to my blog on casino-howto.com which is about online casinos and online casino games!
I have been playing online poker for a living for around 10 years (500,000+ USD all time profit including rakeback, proves will be provided further), and online casinos even longer.
Since I have been involved in the online gambling niche for more than a decade (also I have made a lot of sport bets), I believe, I have acquired a lot of useful and sometimes even unique experience, which I intend to share here.
Why online casinos? Because the online casinos industry is rotten, flooded with rogue casinos, where people are constantly getting scammed (including myself a few times) and there is no end of it on the horizon.
That’s basically why I have decided to try myself as a full-time blogger as I saw an opportunity to make a better product (fair casino ratings). So this blog is going to be devoted exclusively to online casinos (online poker blog is going to be a separate web site a bit later).
What you will find here:
honest reviews of online casinos
reviews of online casino games
guides, tips, articles (for both beginners and experienced players)
What you won’t find here:
promotion of online gambling as an income opportunity
My online gambling background
I would call myself a classic recreation player who gambles very occasionally, maybe once a month.
I first played a video slot when I was 19 , and luckily, as it turned out, I do not have a tendency to gamble often.
Anyway, casino games are exciting for me and I have tried quite a few of them since then (heh, already 14 years has passed so I actually played so many of them).
I consider myself a former poker pro (2010-2020 active career years).
My main discipline was NL Holdem hyper-turbo heads-up sit-n-go tournaments (100-30 usd buy-ins), 200,000+ tournaments had been played during these years.
Proves that “ilovefcbarca” account belongs to me
As you can see, I have won 500,000+ usd (including rakeback, yes, there were times when rakeback on pokerstars was 30%+ for regular players).
My account on the biggest CIS poker forum: https://www.gipsyteam.ru/profile/ilovefcbarca
I made my first bet at the age of 16, back then nobody cared that I came to the bookmaker with a ransack on my shoulders lol.
I liked betting a lot, it was a lot of fun for me. I had anticipated the weekend to wager on European football leagues. I would buy a football magazine to make an “analysis”, which was super primitive and I am sure I was losing money in the long run.
Anyway, I stick to this “tradition” and bet once a week/two for fun even years later.
Also some technical background
I coded the website by myself from scratch, also I would call myself a crypto enthusiast.
Hence, I am going to write about online security, cryptocurrencies (safe use in online casinos) as well.
Thank you for reading this, and hopefully, see you again on the website!
