Ben Smith

Team Leader

Ben was fascinated by betting sites from a young (but legal!) age and continues to immerse himself in the UK gambling scene in particular.

He has come a long way since those speculative scorecasts at William Hill, and Ben considers himself a half-decent punter.

Where he really excels, though, is in comparing and reviewing betting sites on Bookies Bonuses - a website that is his bread and butter.

Having worked with gambling brands in a marketing capacity earlier on in his career, Ben has been fully committed to analysing bookmakers in recent years.
