Rebecca  Liggero

Rebecca Liggero loves meeting new people and traveling – perfect qualities for someone who has won friends and influenced people in the worldwide online gaming community.

After graduating from Bates College with a degree in psychology, Rebecca spent four years in Washington, DC, working in relationship management, dreaming all the while about someday making it big in online gaming. After turning down an opportunity to live in New Zealand, she moved back to Boston and signed on as Senior Account Manager for Casino City – the beginning of a dream come true!

Rebecca’s work on behalf of Casino City (and later for the GPWA as well) took her to trade shows and conferences everywhere – Amsterdam, Barcelona, Costa Rica, Montreal, London, Las Vegas, Macau and many other ports of call – and along the way she began chronicling her incredible around-the-clock adventures in a wildly entertaining and industry-savvy weekly column that quickly became – and still remains – must reading for everyone who is anyone in online gaming. Following almost three years with the Casino City team, Rebecca spent a few months at Everest Affiliates where she was the Brand Manager of the affiliate program. While working on “the other side,” she realized that she truly missed her weekly column and the affiliate side of the business and decided to return to the Casino City family.

One and a half years later, Rebecca resigned from Casino City and joined industry icon Calvin Ayre to serve as the Bodog Global Brand Ambassador and the head on-site reporter for the online gambling industry tablog, CalvinAyre.com. In her new capacity, Rebecca continues to travel the world, and when asked where she is based, her response is usually "on an airplane."

Back from London...Minus a Camera and Wallet

13 Nov 2007

By Rebecca Liggero

Teppanyaki dinner.

Teppanyaki dinner.

It is all Michael Caselli's fault. Every time I am out socializing with Caselli, something mysteriously disappears from my bag- first it's my cell phone, next it's my camera and wallet. I never do this in Boston! Ask anyone! Therefore, it is not my fault, it is Caselli's. He is still my number one favorite though. Personal belonging casualties aside, my weekend in London, well Friday night in London, was one of the most ridiculous nights I have had in a while. It was like an online gaming industry party without the pressure of business and professionalism- inappropriate behavior was totally acceptable.

The festivities began at the Poker Heaven and Blackjack Heaven offices, followed by lunch with the team, Julia from Purple Lounge, and Julia and Fred's baby Lucio (the first industry baby...that we know of). After lunch, my very good friend and London host, Anna from Spin Palace, took me to Primark for a true London shopping experience before the real party started. At 7:30pm. To kick things off, Karim from RakeTheRake.com organized a fabulous dining experience for 15 of us at a teppanyaki restaurant with far too much Saki, meaning most of us needed a stretcher before entering the club. After dinner we met up with the Lyceum Media crew who very kindly arranged a guest list and table at Mint Nightclub, the site of my camera and wallet disappearance. Of course the night would not be complete without a Swede, so in the absence of Tomas from Poker Host, the 20 of us welcomed his best friend Joakim as a replacement. Joakim, you passed the test. Welcome to the online gaming world.

Friday night's aftermath was not pretty. The text messages sent to my phone throughout the day on Saturday were priceless: "I have food poisoning...I cannot get out of bed...I have never been that drunk in my life...I am afraid to leave my apartment and face the world...you are not allowed to come to London ever again...etc, etc, etc". I am not sure if I should be proud or ashamed to have this effect on people. Anyway, unlike the others, I forced myself out of the fetal position to have dinner with Mans from Cardoza Games, yet another Swede that I adore, on Saturday night. After a lovely meal, the two of us ventured to the Sanderson to meet up with Caselli, the only survivor from Friday night (besides me, of course), and the 15 women he had somehow befriended prior to our arrival.

On Sunday morning, I squeezed in the unavoidable business meeting with Justina from Clarion Gaming, had a nice lunch with the ladies, and made my way to Heathrow. In all honesty, I was so happy to just sit on the plane and watch movies, sleep and eat. What a luxury. Too bad there were two screaming babies sitting directly behind me...for all seven hours. Hey, at least I wasn't flying to Macau.
