Neil has pretty much always been a gambler, from marbles and football stickers at a young age, taking a big interest in pontoon from the age of eleven, switching to poker at fourteen, then discovering racing at fifteen, the weekly football coupon at sixteen, the dogs at seventeen and casinos at eighteen.
After completing his university education Neil moved into the poker and bookmaking business which eventually had him going from twice being a millionaire to being broke. But not to be deterred Neil was more than capable of using his poker skills to keep the wolf from the door.
Neil now he spends almost all his time gambling on football, horses and playing a little poker when he fancies it, while also enjoying helping other gamblers to make money through his successful tipping site Betting Emporium.
