Alyx Tzamantanis

Well hello there! I’m Alyx, a Greek girl with a boy’s name from Camden Town in London. When I’m not writing about sports betting and casino gaming, you can find me down the pub with a pint supporting the mighty Arsenal.

Growing up in North London as a tom-boy, there were only 2 choices when it came to football loyalty: Arsenal or Tottenham. And being a kid in the mid-90s, during the glory days of Ian Wright, David Seaman and Highbury Stadium, there seemed to be only one way to go. Well, that and the fact that my uncles threatened to take away my Subuttio if I didn’t swear allegiance to the Gunners. Thus, an Arsenal fan was born!

Testimonials from Colleagues

Living in Camden Town, I spent a lot of my childhood playing football (terribly) and pretending to understand cricket. I also went through a punk/goth stage in my teens, until I realised I was far too chatty and upbeat to garner any respect from either community, which led me straight back to my love of sports.

Fast forward a few years later and I would never have imagined that I’d have a job where I get to write about UK and international sports every day. Plus, my role has also opened up a whole world of casino games that I’d never tried before. Although, if I’m honest, I’m still memorising the rules to poker.

If I had to choose one game to rule them all, for me it would have to be blackjack. Simple to learn, and with the perfect balance of luck and skill, blackjack is the epitome of casino gaming, in my opinion. And now, with live casino and video blackjack at my fingertips, I don’t even have to leave my house (or the pub!) in order to get my kicks.

These days, my major love is still football, especially after spending some time in Spain where I had a brief love affair with Valencia C.F, but I’ve also found myself becoming absolutely obsessed with Formula 1. It might have something to do with the fact that I only just passed my driving test at the age of 38 though. But if you want to know the ins and outs of an F1 car, I’m your gal.

Finally, as a sports and casino writer, if I had one piece of advice for anyone interested in these two worlds, it would be this: try everything! With so much choice available online, there really is a sport or game for everyone.

Don’t know a thing about hockey? Read some sportsbook reviews and news articles and place a small bet. You might find it’s your new favourite sport! Don’t understand the rules to roulette, watch a tutorial and then find a great live casino with a croupier that uses real equipment. You’ll get such a thrill, even if you only bet a quid!

Take it from me, if I can pass my driving test at 38 and suddenly find myself glued to F1, then there’s a new sport or game waiting for you, too. And if you want to follow this Arsenal, F1 and blackjack-loving Greek girl on LinkedIn, you can catch me here.

We asked

What is your favourite casino game?
I’d like to say poker, to make myself sound cool, but I’m afraid I’m a terrible poker player! I can’t remember the card values, and my face gives away every emotion, so I don’t think I’m destined to win any big poker tournaments any time soon. In all honesty, it’s blackjack. It’s simple, nail-biting and the perfect mix of luck and skill
What is your favourite food?
Pizza or curry – let me think. There are too many bad pizza restaurants in the world, but when it’s good, it’s so good! Then again, even a bad curry is still usually a pretty decent curry, so I’ll say that! Yes, curry.
Are you a cat person or a dog person?
I really better say dog here – I have 5 of them!
What is your favourite TV show?
There are almost too many of them to choose from! If you’re talking classics, then Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Black Books and Absolutely Fabulous. But if we’re talking modern telly, then Fleabag, Black Mirror, Modern Family and, rather embarrassingly, Cobra Kai!
