CasinoTopLists Authors


Our aim is to provide our visitors with the latest news from the world of gambling and informative articles about strategy and odds in both online and offline casino games. We also review the most popular casino sites, giving our visitors the opportunity to play at sites with fair odds and secure software. Our goal is also to dig a little deeper in the gambling business compared to your regular casino guide online. We write about the psychological and sociological effects gabling have as well as provide fun articles looking at gambling from an angle you might not be used to. To accomplish this, we have three competent writers on our staff.

News Editor: Seth Shafer


A veritable dinosaur in the world of online gambling (he first played online poker at Planet Poker back in 1998), Seth realized pretty quickly that he'd make more money writing about poker and casino games instead of playing them.

“Especially blackjack...sweet, sweet blackjack.”

He's since covered live poker tournaments in ten different countries (and counting), with articles and photographs appearing on too many websites to count as well as in print magazines and newspapers.

You can follow Seth’s work in the casino news section where he puts his ear to the casino floor and reports what’s happening right now.

Casino Reviewer: Dave Ort

Dave Ort is not your traditional writer.

He is a software developer and casino enthusiast with a passion in user-friendly software of all kinds.

Dave has reviewed over 50 different casino sites for CasinoToplists, and when it comes to creating player-friendly casino platforms, there’s very little Dave doesn’t know.

Or as he puts it himself, “I build casino software, and in my spare time, I sometimes try to make some money playing online – with mixed results.”

Read Dave’s verdicts of online casinos in our casino-review section.

Casino-Strategy Writer: Marty Eastman

Being a professional poker player, Marty knows how the odds affect your profits and losses, and he understands what difference a proper strategy makes to your game.

But like most poker players, he tends to stop at the casino games on his way out from the card rooms.

“As a matter of fact, blackjack is more enjoyable than grinding and grinding all day long at a poker table”

This has thought him one or two things about casino strategy and the common, costly mistakes people make when playing casino games.

You can read his advice on the best strategies under each casino game presented here at CasinoToplists.

Contributing Writer: Aminah Khan

Aminah only makes the occasional foray into the online gambling world but this allows here to give a unique perspective on various topics.

On more than one occasion she has outwitted some of the more "seasoned" gamblers with her fresh outlook which means she always has something to contribute to the cause.
