Meet Our Authors - Michael Stevens
I've been an author for Panoramacity since early 2016, with a concentration on gambling. My expertise on all things casino and sports betting hail from my humble beginnings in my home state of New Jersey. I first got into writing during my college years at Rutgers. While I started as an Accounting major, I switched to Journalism during my sophomore year, and it was only a matter of time before my betting interests and writing skills converged.
While I currently reside in middle-of-nowhere California, I'm quite glad to be within a closer vicinity to the entertainment and gambling mecca of the country-Las Vegas. I currently live with my wife, our dog, and two cats that we rescued. Most days, you can probably find me slumped at my IKEA desk with a cup of coffee, or planning my next trip to the Sin City.
Currently, my favorite topics to write about for the site include football betting, casino sites, and casino games like:
I'm pretty eager to share a lot of my gambling experiences with those who love it as much as I do. Sometimes, I'll share a thing or two about cryptocurrencies and how they fit into the gambling world. The Accounting major in me hasn't entirely left!
As someone who has been writing professionally since 2011, I do think that my writing is informative and delivers a lot of helpful information for other online gamblers. My writing style will vary depending on what I'm writing that day, but it always comes from a place of passion and enthusiasm for both gambling and sports betting.
Apart from writing, I am also very passionate about traveling. Some of my favorite places I've visited include Big Sur in California, Montreal in Canada, and the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. And while it's not the most popular, I still consider Atlantic City a piece of home and recommend everyone to go at least once.

Blackjack used to be one of my favorite casino games as a young gambler and it was fun to revisit it for this article. It felt like a harsh expose on a game I once loved. Not to mention, I had the chance to drop some serious knowledge and a few opinions I've had on blackjack for a while now.
Isn't that what everyone wants? In this article, I draw the parallel between gambling and business as an experienced gambler myself. Learn how to make smart choices while you're either betting on sports or at the casino.
