Hi! My name is Giovanni Angioni

Political scientist, and gambling expert, I have spent the most part of the last ten years writing about the casino and poker industry. As a professional journalist, I work with FOX News, La Repubblica, the Economist, Politico, and PokerNews. As a gambler, I won money pretty much anywhere in Europe. As a gambling editor, I'll help you do the same.

What do you love most about casinos?

What’s not to love about them!? The thrill, the people, the excitement - those who are used to frequent casinos know how fun some places can be. And you don’t need to be a gambler to agree - places like the Hippodrome in London (to name my favorite spot in Europe) are just perfect for everyone!

How did it all start for you?

I used to spend a lot of time in the South of France in my childhood and I remember how painful it was be in Monte Carlo and not be allowed to set foot inside the Casino. I went in right after I turned 18 and, guess what, it turned out to be a very good idea!

Do you have any other passions?

I am a news junkie, so I spend most of my time trying to understand what goes on around me. Also, I love traveling, good restaurants, and Lagavulin.
