Born in Canada in the late 1960s, he moved to the UK with his parents at a young age, where he studied at UCL (University College London) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and was part of their first Research Excellence programme.
Having reached the age of 55, Mr. Harris has retired and is currently based on the Isle of Man, but still participates sporadically in some Social Gaming events.
With over 25 years of expertise and knowledge in regulated gambling and online casino/sports betting, Mr. Harris is often asked to serve on judging panels at events such as the SBC Awards North America – announcing Casino Operators and Sportsbook of the Year.
Thus, he maintains relationships with recognized and new operators, affiliates and suppliers from all the major disciplines, including payments, marketing, platform providers and data.
He and his family are involved in a private Betting Coach Group, where he organizes workshops and training courses focused on education and emerging trends in the gambling world.
Mr. Harris also assists several international charities and non-profit organizations that focus on sports, e-sports and global gambling issues.
Beginning in the early years of Microgaming in the distant 1995, he was part of setting the industry standards for quality, defining the goals for online innovation and entertainment at one of the first and most prestigious game incubators/labs in the casino’s history.
In this early stage of the company’s advancement, the young Mr. Harris held a position as a reputation officer in the science/communication/public relations department.
He left the company in 2005, before the release of the most advanced jackpot game to date – Mega Moolah (launched in 2006), but there are certainly some of his ideas that have been implemented before going global with the progressive network pot and for the introduction of some branded slots.
He then spent several years working for other gambling enterprises: Absolute Poker, where he worked in a UK legal and regulated online poker environment, and then a year at NetEnt.
All this until the year 2010, when he started an affiliate program with some friends and has been the driving force behind our Company ever since.
Occupied at our company, Mr. Harris had found his life credo, good name and commitment and tries to announce it with every article he publishes.
It is in the service of good entertainment and the prosperity of players by spreading knowledge and tips about the slots and their software realization online.
In addition, he tries to spread his hot tips from the inner “casinos aisles”. He also uses his connections to introduce new studios to the world stage and doesn’t hesitate to spread a few critical words if he thinks an old and popular company in the industry deserves it.
