Meet Our Team
There’s no way this site would exist without a team of writers. So we’ve put together an amazing team of content creators that have years of experience between them. Here are our primary editorial staff and details on what they contribute to the site.
About Our Authors
- John Marsh – John enjoys games of skill the most, such as blackjack and poker. But he’s definitely not above playing the Iron Man or Hulk slot machines when duty calls. Most of our game rules and strategy pages were written by Mr. Marsh.
- Cliff Spiller – Cliff Spiller was the news writer from 2013 to 2019. He’s a 15-year veteran of the online gambling industry and is now an editor for our site, bringing the same dedication he provided in hundreds of blog posts. Cliff focuses on state gambling laws and slot reviews these days. When not playing casino games online, Cliff enjoys board games, movie reviews, and sports. He’s a long-suffering fan of the Dallas Cowboys.
- Brian Parker – If you’re reading about a specific casino or about what casinos you can play at on your iPad or Android phone, chances are high that you’re reading Brian’s work. He loves reviewing new casinos. We’re guessing that has something to do with being able to play the games while he’s “working.”
About Our News Team
Our news blog is one of the most active parts of BOC. James Guill works tirelessly to bring players the latest news from the online casino world.
- James Guill – James is our news writer. This takes a lot of effort, as he has to keep an eye out for news, research the legitimacy of each story and write about it fast enough that, by the time you read it, it’s not yesterday’s news. As of 2019-2020, James includes a “Game of the Week” among his news stories. Mr. Guill is an experienced poker writer with a strong presence on Twitter.

BestOnlineCasinos.com Our Team FAQ
Our reviewers are experts in the online casino business. Most have 5 to 15 years of experience in the online gambling industry. Some have even more experience. They might come from the poker community or the sports betting community, but all began with an interest in online betting.
In each case, they approach the subject from a player's perspective. Our reviewers are players themselves, so they have a passion for casino games that matches their knowledge of the subject.
Absolutely. When our editors assign reviews, we only give reviewers a list of features they should review: a few of those subjects are slot games, table games, video poker, deposit options, bonuses and promotions, software brands, mobile apps, safety, and customer service.
It's left to our reviewers to make independent judgments of those features, which are summed up in a set of ratings. These writers also provide an overall rating. Along with a handy FAQ to answer commonly asked questions, the idea is to give players the information they need to reach their own decision.
We choose our own content. We choose which online casinos to review. We choose which slot games to review. Independent of outside influence, we choose which table games and video poker titles to highlight.
Furthermore, our staff chooses which deposit options to discuss. Our staff decides which software companies to profile. These decisions are based on our honest evaluation of the most important gaming sites, casino games, and support services in the business.
Send a request through the Contact Us link we provide in the first part of this article. Many software developers exist. Many thousands of online slots can be found on the Internet. We try to review the best online slot games, but if you have a suggestion, we'd be happy to take it under advisement.
Our goal is to review the best online casinos in each region. We devote a lot of resources to building this guide to online casinos, but we don't have the resources to review every betting site in the world. Frankly, we don't want to give publicity to inferior gaming sites or blacklisted casinos. We might make a brief mention of a black hat site here or there, but we want to focus on the best online casinos in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK.
