OnlineCasino.co.uk - About Our Team

When choosing an online casino, about seventy percent of all players fail to do proper research.  Rather than heed the wisdom of expert reviews, resources, and tips, too many players rely on quick Google searches or manipulative adverts.  At Online Casino UK, we find this statistic sad and take it personally, largely because it doesn’t have to be this way.

Online since 1998, Online Casino UK has always strived to be the #1 resource for anything related to online gaming in the UK. Read on to learn about our unique perspective and growing team of United Kingdom casino experts.

TheDoctor, or Dan Jones as he is known to the wife, has long served as senior editor here at OCUK, casting his keen eye over almost every article we've published since launch. Dan has nearly two decades of experience in the online gambling sector, and loves games at casinos online about as much as he loves his footy.

Josh Davies

As a humble 20-something, Josh says there's not much of a story to tell about him. But like most millennial gamblers he loves poker especially at online casinos. About all Josh does is keep tabs on the major poker tournaments in the UK, Europe and USA. He is a big fan of all tournaments, from poker to blackjack and even slots. Wherever there's a leaderboard, you can probably find Josh, either listed in the winners or covering the event for us. Josh will also be keeping you up to date with the latest promotions at casinos online, about big events, new bonus codes, and jackpots.

Oliver Cooper
Staff Writer

Oliver loves the casinos online. The only things Oliver dreams about is flashing lights, clacking chips, and slot jackpots. But apart from his love of the casino atmosphere, Oliver is actually a very serious table game player. While the rest of us played snap at a young age, Oliver played blackjack and poker. For longer than he can remember, his family has always loved card games.  

About the United Kingdom Experience

If you love casino excitement, then the UK is precisely where you want to be.  Unlike other countries in the so-called civilised world that clamp down on gambling in various manners, the United Kingdom authorises and regulates wagering online and offline.  It’s hard to believe the country that invented Las Vegas and all its mayhem restricts online casinos in most states.  But unless you like laughing at other people’s misfortune, it’s not your problem in the UK.  You should count your lucky stars and hit the tables instead.

About UK Resources

Even though online casinos are completely legal and regulated in the United Kingdom, the resources available to players are underwhelming.  Too many sites seem like they were either authored by a robot who plagiarised Wikipedia or someone who has never visited a casino in his life.  Some of the more popular sites operate on a global scale and make only passing mention of UK online casinos. About half the sites lack the impartiality you should demand.

If you were planning on learning something from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission’s blog, it helps to be a barrister, solicitor, or legislator.  All that legal jargon might play well in court or parliament, but it won’t help you win at blackjack at a casino online. About all you need is the information to succeed in the UK, which is precisely where we come in. 

About What We Do

When it comes to learning about playing at an online casino, about all that matters is that you can get up to speed quickly.  Of course we’re assuming that the information is accurate, insightful, and easy to digest.  All our team members know the ins and outs of every game.
