GPWA AFFILIATE INTERVIEW SERIES What did you do prior to getting into the gambling industry in 2017? I studied tourism at university. When I started working in gambling, I was in my fourth year and studied for another year and a half while working. In addition to my studies, I worked ordinary jobs, such as a hotel doorman and a store salesman. I also had an unsuccessful attempt to open my own business for a year when I owned a comic book store, which successfully failed. (Laughs). So, how did you make your way into the gambling industry? After my business failed, I took a regular job as a salesman and realized that I didn’t want to work like that for the rest of my life, so I decided to change it dramatically. I quit my job, started studying web design; and looking for remote work. On a job search site, I came across an ad that offered a job (as a content manager) on a website about games. I found out what kind of games they were at the interview. I didn’t get into gambling right away. At first, I was a bit skeptical. But later, I started to dive deeper and deeper into this niche, communicate with a bunch of people involved in different areas of gambling, and just realized that I would be here for a long time and I liked it. How did your role as a content manager shape your trajectory to an affiliate a short time later? The position of a content manager gave me a lot of knowledge about gambling in a short by Step Step Despite being a skeptic at first, “bitcasinorank’s” relatively new venture as an iGaming affiliate continues to evolve as he dives deeper and deeper into the industry Alex - bitcasinorank G P W A t i m e s . o r g 54
