Meet Our Authors - Kevin Oldroyd
Kevin Oldroyd is an international gambling news and sports author for GamblingSites.org. While studying in college, he got his roots in professional writing while working for the ARVC as a marketing specialist. Eventually, he was offered a role as a content creator for a significant affiliate marketing company in Budapest, Hungary. Here, he shifted his focus to the gambling industry and began writing pieces on gambling news and sports betting predictions.

Kevin has an informative, upbeat style of writing that helps readers understand changes to gambling laws in the easiest way possible. He focuses on finding information that major media outlets ignore so that readers always know what's happening in the gaming industry. As someone who's worked in the marketing industry for years, he's also interested in offering the best gambling deals and betting tips for fans of both casino and sports gambling.
As a resident of Northern California, Kevin loves spending time exploring and hiking through the mountains. When he's not spending time outside, you can probably find him reading up on the latest MMA news and watching big fights. He's also known to play a few hands of blackjack from time to time inside the many tribal casinos spread around California.
Kevin also takes any opportunity he can to travel. When he has the time, he'll jump on a plane to visit (and perhaps write about) different cities around the world.
His goal is to continue working as a content creator with a focus on the gambling industry. Online gambling is growing more popular around the world. Many countries are beginning to embrace the gaming industry, including the United States, where sports betting is growing at an unprecedented rate.

How Fast Can You Throw a Baseball?

The UK has one of the biggest golf fan bases in the world. It was fun to talk about some of the different PGA betting sites available in this country. I also enjoyed the SEO aspect of the article.
