Hailey CampbellView articles
Hailey joined our team a little over two years ago. During this time, she gained extensive knowledge in the gambling industry, being passionate about uncovering all of its hidden areas. This approach improved her analytical skills and inspired her to bring valuable insights to Canadian players. Being a Canadian herself, with origins in Calgary, she knows exactly what punters are looking for and how to fill their gambling knowledge gap.
After completing her Linguistics degree at the University of Alberta, Hailey enrolled in a Media Communication Master’s program at the University of Montreal. Relocating there after finishing her studies seemed like the right move for her career. During her student years, Hailey not only exploited her existing passions but also pursued other interests. One of these was casual gambling. She started visiting local casinos and quickly got into the game. Although this recreational activity faded, the experience acquired during that time helped her in this role. Nowadays, she takes her responsibility of guiding players very seriously and is keen on actively contributing toward a safer gambling environment.
