RealMoney.Games About Us
Well it’s more about me really! Plus of course what Realmoney.games is all about.
I’m Steve, the owner, creator of, and almost sole author of everything you’ll read on this site. That’s me to the right. It’s a passport photo for now, hence the expression!
I say almost only because a very limited number of pages may be written by other contributors. These will almost always be written by experts in their field, and they’ll always have been vetted by me for accuracy and value before publication.
So what gives me specifically the authority to write valuable and trustworthy articles on real money gaming?
Well, the main answer to that is around 40 years of gambling experience, plus around 10 years of writing informative words on other websites all based on that same experience.
In that 40 years I’ve been actively engaged in various forms of gambling. I’ve won money and lost it. I’ve had some great times and some not so great. But fortunately I’ve managed to control it and learned a whole bunch of valuable lessons.
There’s a little more personal stuff about me further below, but for now all this brings us to the point of Realmoney.games. games itself……
Which is of course to deliver useful information about the different types of games that can be played for cash prizes, where you can play them, and some incidental info about how you can get the best out of the experience.
I can’t say a lot more than that. To find out more just navigate to the home page and start from there.
Living with a long term partner (Beth) in a small village in the middle of England near Leicester.
We have a lovely 10 year old boy, an absolute diamond. I’m 56. I have two older children from a previous marriage – Lewis and Chloe. I’m very proud of both. It looks like Lewis is going to be following in my footsteps, he’s already picking winners on the horses and has collected on a couple of football accumulators. Chloe has finished university with great grades and is a very sensible girl.
One of my my real passions is for horse racing.
Right from the time my Dad gave me my first ever winner back in 1977 – £3 to win on Strawhill – I’ve been in love with the horses. The sport of kings – thundering hooves, flying leaps, the rush of adrenalin when yours is getting close, and the glow that comes from getting one over on the bookies, no matter how big or small the return.
It’s actually not about the money, it’s about the passion, the participation. Of course, winning is great, but I’ve experienced more emotion on occasions when losing narrowly, or realising I’ve watched a titanic battle even if my horse wasn’t involved. I’ve cried with the knowledge that I saw something special, and can almost touch the memories of those historic races – Diamond Edge just beaten in The Whibread, Path Of Peace romping home in the November Handicap mud at 25-1, and more recently Imperial Commander beaten by the width of a piece of paper by the irrepressible Kauto Star, truly one of the greatest chasers ever.
Imperial Commander was carrying the weight of my biggest ever bet in that race, and the fact that I lost lets me make a very strong point that I really want you to understand – and that point is that it’s all supposed to be fun. Treat your betting as an enjoyable pastime, only play with what you can afford to lose, recognise that there’s always the possibility of losing. Read and understand the responsible gambling page. Understand the importance of betting banks and bankroll management.
They say you should write about what you know, and I do know gambling. I’ve tried the systems, I’ve read the books, and I’ve trawled through hundreds of gambling websites over the years. In the end, winning is down to study, skill, persistence, luck, and taking the right opportunities – plus the ability to accept losses as well as winnings – and keep going.
Together we’re going to have a lot of fun trying to find some good winners, be it through horse racing, casino games, poker, bingo or any of our other featured money winning games.
Let’s do it carefully.
