When people hear about the rather intriguing life of professional gamblers, what they often immediately think about is either those gamblers who go on tour and are paid to feature in the likes of poker tournaments in addition to being in line to win the prize money, or they think about that professional gambler who sits at their computer screen with various analytical tools at arm’s length and places strategic bets on online casino platforms backed by some sort of strategy they’ve developed. Thoughts of a pro gambler taking this form are every bit accurate, however that’s not the be all and end all of professional gambling or indeed profiting from gambling.
You can profit from gambling in so many different ways beyond what it normally comes down to, that being placing a bet.
Active Gambling Industry Income
Active income is like getting a regular job, where your remuneration is based on some task you complete or based on a series of tasks completed within a set out timeframe. So naturally the casino industry has a lot of opportunities for active income generation, the most straight-forward of which is perhaps getting a job in the industry, like being a croupier at a physical casino, a concierge assistant, etc. Things get a bit interesting if you take the search to the online casino industry however because there are so many opportunities even for freelancers and remote workers.
Sure, it’ can make for some seriously boring and repetitive work, but a lot more than what meets the eye goes into the operation of an online casino. I’m talking beyond the technical side of things here. At any given time there is a team of hundreds of workers from all over the world making sure the online casino platform you’re taking your chance on is in smooth operation, not least of which are data entry workers of sorts. These people simply process and organise data to be analysed by the appropriate statistical authorities so that the online casino platform in question adheres to regulations and so that its operators can have a better understanding of the figures and facts so as to continuously improve the platform.
Career or simple job opportunities are available in their numbers, but you’d have to be proactive and specifically ask about them when approaching online casino operators for these types of jobs, more so those which can be done remotely or on a freelance basis.
Passive Gambling Industry Income
This is where the money is, in terms of income that can be derived from the gambling industry beyond placing bets and gambling. Just think about titles such as the Jack and the Beanstalk Online Slot. It takes a lot to put such a game together and to offer it up as an option on an online gambling platform because of associated issues such as licensing fees and the likes. Well, you’d probably have to gain a lot of mileage in your career to be able to boast having ownership rights to something as popular as Jack and the Beanstalk, but we must all start somewhere, in the same way that the programmer whose gambling software is used to power up many online casino platforms started somewhere.
That is where the serious money is though if you want to look beyond merely placing bets to make money from casinos.
