Sarah Jones – Editor Profile
I’m Sarah Jones; writer, mother and casino lover! Having grown up in Brighton, I have always had a fascination with tourism and leisure. I found it so intriguing and exciting that my hometown became a mecca for families, couples and groups of friends during the summer months. I spent countless days by the seafront during my teens, hanging out at the amusement arcades, feeding pennies into the arcade slot machines and experiencing the thrill of gaming.
I went on to study International Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey and during the break between the 2nd and 3rd academic years, I undertook a professional training placement. I worked in a prestigious and renowned casino in Brighton. This fuelled my fascination with the industry, giving me a valuable insight into casino management.
After graduating, I spent a year travelling the world. I love seeing different cultures and ways of life and my passion for travel has held a place dear to my heart to this day (although I have fewer opportunities to escape these days!). I particularly enjoyed my time in Macau. The sheer scale of the casino industry is awe inspiring and the place had such a buzz about it.
Upon moving back to Brighton, I started working as a trainee casino manager. It is a career that I adored, learning the ins and outs of the industry, developing my understanding of all casino games and how to cater to the needs of players. Of the rich and varied selection of games on offer, it is slot machines that have always been my favourite.
It was at the casino that I met the love of my life and after a whirlwind romance, we married and moved to Manchester. Not long after, we welcomed twin boys, and it’s fair to say, life has never been the same! Shortly after Harry and James were born, I began blogging about my experiences. I quickly discovered a passion for writing. When the boys were napping, I found it a great escape from life and it allowed me to carve another role for myself aside from that of “mummy”.
Having discovered this love for writing, I later embarked on an MA in Multimedia Journalism at Manchester Met. I broadened my scope and started to write more and more about a vast range of topics, particularly casino related articles. My love for casinos has never waned and I like to keep up to date with the latest news and developments affecting the industry. I also rekindled my love for casino games around the same time, playing at online casinos to get my kicks.
Now the boys are in school, I write full-time. I joined the editorial team of 1slots.info and it is a perfect fit. I use my expertise of all things casino to report on a wide range of topics; from game rules and strategies to identifying the safest and best casinos to play at. From beginners to experts, I write for all audiences. Want to know how to play roulette online? Interested in casino bonuses and promotions? I’ve got it covered!
