About Michael McKenzie

While an essential part of CasinoScout as our senior editor, Michael McKenzie’s experience with gambling has been much longer. Before online casinos, Michael took regular trips to Niagara Falls and even Vegas. Even now, he occasionally disappears to hit up his favourite real-world gaming spots. An avid gambler at heart, Michael was the perfect match for the CasinoScout team.

While brick-and-mortar casinos hold a special place in Michael’s heart, most of his interest remains in online gambling. He was one of the earliest adopters of online gambling and frequently tells the rest of us off about how good we have it nowadays!

Recognizing the potential of playing from home, Michael took up the task of informing his fellow players of the best games and casinos. When the CasinoScout team reached out to him to turn his hobby into a career, he jumped at the chance and never looked back.

Today, Michael roams the office correcting mistakes and gushing over whatever latest game caught his eye. He still avidly swears by Cash or Crash and plays a few rounds of Boom City on break. If you want to get friendly with him, though? Start talking about Starburst XXXtreme, Misery Mining, and Pirate Pays Megaways.

Free Time & Hobby’s

If you can separate Michael from a screen long enough, you will find he has a knack for several things alongside gambling. Alongside cooking up great reviews, he’s also a master in the kitchen! While he can make just about everything, baking is his specialty. Whenever he brings some grub to the offices, it evaporates as everyone rushes to take a piece.

Michael also has a soft spot for the cinema, frequenting it every few weeks to check out the latest flicks. He is our resident Marvel expert, always brimming with excitement whenever a new movie is about to launch.
