Hi I’m Charles Greene your humble author of nongamstopbookies.com. I’m an avid sports and money fan, and my main goal from a young age was to combine the two (sorry I never realized it as a footballer). At the age of 20 I found a great opportunity to make money from my passion for sports, it was betting.
Education and experience
I received my doctorate in economics from Oxford University in 2005. Even during my studies I had been thinking about my future path, but after graduation circumstances worked out in the most fortunate way.
It was in 2005 that the first Gambling Act came out that caught my attention. The main changes that the Gambling Act brought about were the transfer of licensing powers from the Magistrates’ Court to the UK authorities or licensing boards and the creation of the UKGC. I delved deeper into this area and very soon realised that gambling and sports betting was a very lucrative industry that was generating income for the economy.
Since then, I have put all my energies into studying the specifics of the legal aspects of the industry. It was not just about how it affects the economy, but also about the need for players to find a safe but controlled gambling platform.
Why Gambling Career?
Since university I have been determined to develop my career in the UK economic system. I have always wanted to be part of the economy and have a direct relationship with people. Moreover, I also really love sport and everything that comes with it. Thus, the gambling industry combines several of my big interests.
It is also a field that is constantly developing and learning new things. I enjoy being part of this and helping people learn more about the opportunities that are available to them.
