Meet Rudie Venter

Rudie Venter, our blue-eyed golden boy, grew up on an angora farm in the Karoo and headed to the University of Pretoria to get his degree in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Management. He thought of going back to take over the family business, but halfway through his studies switched to psychology. Human behavior, he realized, was more interesting than raising sheep. 

Rudie has always been curious about what makes us tick and went on to focus his masters on problem gambling. Along the way, he discovered the wonderful world of online gambling (responsibly of course!) and supplemented his meager student earnings by writing about his newfound passion. Today, Rudie wears many hats – sometimes psychologist, sometimes gambling councilor, sometimes online gambling writer. 

Much of the content that you’ll find at PlayCasino is written by Rudie. He has been with us for 7 years and is an irreplaceable part of the team. 

Quality Content Writer

When it comes to his own quiet passion for online gambling, Rudie is a little-bit-of-this-and-a-little-bit-of-that type of guy. He’s just as happy spinning the reels of online slots as he is checking out the odds of different online roulette variants. Curious by nature, he’ll try anything new on the market and then discuss (sometimes to death!) about what makes the game popular, why it would appeal to players, why specifically South African gamblers, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera… 

Rudie loves to try out new online casinos and then write about them. We trust him to write up the most honest reviews and to fish out the tiniest details about a gaming site. Thanks to his fantastic personality, Rudie has developed great relationships with a whole lot of important people in the industry, and will be among the first to know about new online casinos popping up or new online casino promotions set to launch. We swear, he even has a little black book where he marks all the new bonus codes!

On holidays, you’ll find Rudie back at the family farm, riding his quadbike, playing online casino games and writing blogs for He also loves posting beautiful pics of the farm at sundown on Instagram. Look out for Rudie on all the social media platforms but he’s a great Twitter devotee at heart. Find him here:
