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, In her new capacity, Rebecca continues to travel the world, and when asked where she is based, her response is usually "on an airplane."

What Happens in Costa Rica Stays in Costa Rica

31 May 2007

Rebecca's Recommendations

As I have stated in the past, the fabulous "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" phrase applies to Costa Rica visits and even to the Grinkos, Canadians and Swedes that live there. I cannot even tell you the number of times a statement was preceded with, "This is off the record, but...", and the number of times that I was forbidden to share any of my stories with Jenny (I know! I don't get it either!). See why this was my seventh trip to Costa Rica in 1.5 years? Now you get it, don't you...

It all started with my 5am flight from Boston. US Airways- also known as "US Scareways"- never fails to deliver a few surprises. I arrived at the airport a bit later than planned as Boston likes to randomly shut down major tunnels and highways with the excuse of "The Big Dig". Right. I finally got in line with the 950 other people who were trying to check in for their US Scareways early morning flights. I stood there for one hour. ONE hour. Finally the airline attendant made a call for all passengers on the flight to Charlotte (me) as I was about to miss my flight. To make a long story short, I made the flight and I made my connection in Charlotte, but I got stuck sitting next to a 20-something hippie with a thick Southern accent, long hair, and a burning need to talk to me the entire way to San Jose. Trust me, I learned all there is to know about beef jerky (apparently this kid is an expert), yoga (yes, he did meditate during the flight), fishing, surfing, and the land he wants to purchase in Costa Rica (typical).

My first two nights in Costa Rica were spent on the Pacific Coast with my friends from Poker Host, Absolute Poker, Ultimate Bet and Pitbull Poker. This was a big step for me considering that I have never been anywhere outside of San Jose when traveling to Costa Rica. Ok fine, that's a lie. I have been to Jaco, but that doesn't count. There are a few things I learned this past weekend at that secluded beach, and I will tell you honestly- I am a smarter person now. First of all, I learned that five people can polish off three double bottles of wine, several cases of beer, a bottle of tequila and two bottles of vodka in less than 48 hours. I learned that two Swedesh boys can consume more food at 5am than ten people can consume in two months. I also learned a new word that can be added to my online gaming vocabulary list: FEK. It is a nice G-rated way to swear. You can even add "KING" or "KER" or "KED" to it. However, this word must be capitalized for the full effect, similar to SHPRITZ and its capitalization requirement. FEK. Now that is funny.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

My last two nights were spent in San Jose (typical), and as always, I did manage to arrange a nice night out with all my online gaming friends before flying home. I started off the night with my good friend Bobby, VP of Operations at RealTime Gaming, who treated me to an amazing sushi dinner and then treated the entire group to drinks at Tequila Joe's. My friends from Absolute Poker, Ultimate Bet, Pitbull Poker, CoolCat Casino, Poker Host, and SBG Global joined us for drinks and we even had a guest appearance from the infamous Brad Pitt (remember him?). Of course I managed to stay out until 6:30am that night (damn you Fiesta Casino) with the company of Brad, my girl from Pitbull Poker and a Swede from Poker Host. It was really fun flying home that morning. Are you sure? Yes. I'm 100% sure.

Ms. January

Ms. January

So there you have it...everything that I was allowed to tell you from my trip to Costa Rica. Oh yes, and one more thing- how could I forget- Ms. January from the Poker Host calendar came with us to the beach. Not bad, huh? The Swedish boys couldn't keep their hands off her.
