Hello everyone!

Thank you for choosing my blog. I will start by telling you a few things about me, hence enabling you, my dear readers, to understand why I got into blogging.

First things first, my name is Uhuru Maina, aged 26. I grew up in Nairobi, Kenya, where my friends and I would spend hours thinking about our futures; you know the drill. At the age of 18, I finished high school and moved to the UK for my undergraduate studies. It was three years of braving cold weather and adapting to new cuisines.

At the end of my study period, I was not eager to head back home just yet. I was just getting the hang of living in the UK and wanted to spend more time with my newfound friends. As luck would have it, I got a gig in England where I met some more people and took up other hobbies. The thing that struck me the most was how invested some of my colleagues were in gambling. I would walk into the office and find them hunched over their computers, calculating odds and making wagers. My curiosity got the better of me, and one day, I asked one of them if I could also get in on the fun.

You can imagine how excited I was at the prospects of making some money. Many people have been where I was: eager, inexperienced, hopeful, scared and elated all at once. I could see that my colleagues had some good days when they would make up to £500 a day and I could already picture what I would do with my winnings. The first day I played, I lost my wager, and mind you, despite warnings from my colleagues, I had wagered a quarter of my salary. I remember going home in a daze, unfeeling, hurt and shocked. In just one move, I had lost what I needed for essentials.

The following days were not different, either, and I kept losing money. And the more I lost, the more I wanted to play to recoup what I had lost. It took a while for me to get a footing in the industry, having come to the point of almost giving up in entirety. My turning point was when I realized that I expected to make it big like people who had been playing for years. I thought about it, and it occurred to me that I had been playing in the big leagues when I was actually a beginner. I took a step back and started learning what gambling entailed. In a few months, I was doing much better than my first stances.

It took a while before I could win big, but the wait was worth it as I now had a steady income stream from gambling. Looking around me, I realized that many people who lost money over and over owed their losses to lack of knowledge. Losing money is inevitable but finding yourself in a constant state of loss indicates that all is not well.

I have been on the losing end and know what it takes to win. It’s not easy to get there. That’s why I started this blog to help people who have had a rough start or are yet to try gambling to navigate their way around the learning curve. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
