Back in 1998 my educational studies had ended and I was looking to start my journey into employment. Being young I didn't really know what I wanted to do and by chance stumbled across a vacancy in an amusement arcade. At the time the coastal towns in the UK were thriving and this was an extremely busy industry to work in, and a fun one come to think of it. Of all the machines and bright lights that were on offer I was always drawn in by the slot machines, some of them did ( and still do ) require a little bit of skill to play and I was fascinated how these machines worked and how quickly they were developing in the industry.

Over the next ten years I built an extensive knowledge of how all machines in the industry worked whilst also keeping a close eye on the development of slot machines and their progression in stake, prize, and technology. Through hard work and determination I had started out as a member of staff who would retrieve prizes for customers and partake in general daily duties, to managing one of the largest holiday park amusement arcades in the UK.

During my time working in that managerial role, the company I was employed by ( Leisure Link - Playnation ) put me through an NVQ level 3 management course which helped me to develop further skills in both my working role and as a person.

By the time I had been managing for a few years the online slot industry was absolutely flying, this was an area of slot machines I had been following closely and enjoyed a flutter on these games as I felt they offered a better chance to players, as opposed to the land based industry that had in my opinion progressed through stakes and prizes far too quickly. 

After several successful years managing at the holiday park I decided to head to pastures new, and moved to another managerial position in an amusement arcade where I had a little more time to myself so I could travel, and think about starting a new project working for myself where I could draw from my experiences in the industry and from what I knew about online slots.


At the time of trying to decide what area of online slots I would start a website on, the Australian game developer Big Time Gaming had released a series of new slots that had stirred excitement among old and new players online. Part of these new slots included a never seen before reel gaming mechanic named Megaways™, which I believed pumped some new blood into the online industry and made other slot developers seriously up their game.

The result of all of these circumstances led me to create, I wanted this site to be the go to place for all Big Time Gaming and Megaways™ Slots related information. Through my extensive play on these games and knowledge of what makes a great slot, I felt I could write an informative review that would break down how each of these games worked whilst offering my opinion on them. Just to top it all off I even added the ability for users of the site to play these games for free, so they could form their own opinion on each individual game that gets released.

The casinos that I recommend to play at are ones that I have personally played at myself, and have deposited and withdrawn cash with them. All slot reviews are my own words and I play each game thoroughly to provide my visitors with the best and most accurate information possible. 



compliance to the uk market

On the 12th July 2019 age identification checks were successfully implemented to the site to comply with the latest legislation from the UK Gambling Commission. In doing so, this made me the first website that offers free play slots to fall in line with this latest change to the law, and with having first hand experience with responsible gambling through my job, I'm fully aware of the importance of keeping compliant and protecting those most at risk. 

Of all the websites that offer free play slots mine is without doubt one of the newest kids on the block, and most definitely one of the smallest, but to be the first to fall in line with regulation shows how seriously I take the rules that are set out by the UKGC. 


Having being brought up in a small seaside town in Lincolnshire in the UK I always had a desire to travel and see more of the world. Luckily due to the nature of my profession, the working season was generally from March until November so this left plenty of time for me to follow my dreams. 

The first trip I ever embarked on was a years working holiday visa to New Zealand, and this is still up there as one of my all time favourite trips. The scenery was breathtaking, the Kiwis are still among the nicest people I have ever met in my life, and I remain friends with several people I met on that trip to this current day.

Having gained a taste for more travel since that trip my further adventures have seen me travel to the USA, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Japan, Spain, France, Germany, and Portugal. There are still plenty more places that I would like to visit, with Egypt being near the top of this list as I have fascination with the history and the pharaohs. 

In 2016 my life changed completely when I became a father for the first time, my daughter holds dual citizenship so this currently sees me spending my time between the UK and Asia. It also means that I get to avoid a large part of the winter in the UK, which is good for me as I'm not a fan of the cold, but Christmas just isn't the same when you're in a different country.

I love learning new things and meeting new people, when I first decided to start this website I didn't have a single clue how to build a site, or how to go about structuring anything that could have a chance of ranking in a search engine, let alone somebody actually reading it. But with a lot of hard work, plenty of ups and downs, and hours of watching youtube videos the site is up and running and I've had positive feedback since, which just inspires me to work harder everyday and make it better for my visitors to enjoy.
