Mark Karsten, Chief editor

My name is Mark Karsten. If you came to this page, then you are curious to know who I am. I am a regular guy, originally from Canada (Ontario), now living in Toronto.

At university, I used to watch my friends playing at online casinos and often encountered fraud. Soon I decided to gamble too, but not to earn and leisure, but to understand how online casinos work from the inside. At the same time, I began to learn the legality of online casinos in Canada, licenses, types of bonuses, how payment systems work in online casinos, all about the withdrawal of funds, the RTP, and more. All this knowledge allowed me to choose a safe casino, play safely, and win.

After learning all the legal and gaming nuances in online casinos, I began to advise friends and acquaintances, people on the Internet and heard the words of gratitude in response. By the way, you can also contact me by email or ask your gambling questions on the GPWA website. I will try to answer all your questions and do my best to help you learn something new.

In general, after such an experience under my belt, I decided to try myself fully in the field of online gambling. So I became editor-in-chief of, and set one primary goal – to create useful and reliable content for my readers. I analyze each casino, and the best ones I write reviews, which you can easily read and draw conclusions. Also, I always read a lot of current gaming news and everything that happens in the gambling market in Canada and around the world.

My first interview on choosing online gambling platforms is coming soon. You will find it on this page.

I am sincerely proud that the hobby has turned into a job, and I hope you enjoy my content.

Strong recommendation: If you feel gambling-addicted, please call the Responsible Gambling Council at +1 (416) 499 9800. Don’t gamble with money you can’t afford to lose.
