GambleJoe Team

We give our best - for you!

In 2012, Daniel launched for you, exactly 11 years ago. Since then, a lot has happened on The site has not only received a facelift over the years, but has also been completely redesigned by Matthias and Counter. We have written about how exactly the project came about on our "About GambleJoe" page.

We keep our heads spinning for you and come up with new and useful features to make your stay on as pleasant as possible. This is rounded off by new casino games and the moderation of the forum by Julian and Andre. The forum team is also available at any time to help you with any problems you may have with the gambling providers listed with us.

What once started small, Daniel still affectionately calls "his baby", has grown up in the meantime, has recently sprung out of its infancy and - also thanks to you - has learned to walk!

This means that GambleJoe has grown into the portal with the largest German-speaking community over the past 10 years.

There are no machines or AIs (artificial intelligences) behind GambleJoe, but real people and it is important to us that you can get a good picture of us.

We also want to better explain our responsibilities on GambleJoe and thus create more transparency.

Gründer und Inhaber von GambleJoe - The Boss :)
Currently not available on the platform.
The founder of GambleJoe
About me:
My name is Daniel and I was born near Stuttgart in October 1982.
From an early age, I was a technology enthusiast and liked to tinker around on the computer.
When I got a little older, I became interested in websites and had already created a few sites in different areas before GambleJoe.
For example, one of my heart's projects at the time was a website where I wrote and reported on map tutorials of video games.
GambleJoe was finally launched by me at the end of 2012. You can read the story behind it and also how I met Matthias on the "About GambleJoe" page.
Unfortunately, due to the constant development and work on GambleJoe, I didn't have a real life outside the screen for a few years and completely neglected myself, and that only because I wanted to perfect this project at the time. Unfortunately, this also left some traces, which is why I have made the decision to retire from this project in 2019 in order to be able to concentrate on myself again.

Project manager
In the GambleJoe team since 1st May. 2015
Staatlich geprüfter Spielautomatenbedienungs- und Geldvernichtungsspezialist
Monday to Friday 11 am to 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday 11 am to 1 pm
I am responsible for looking for technical errors and thinking up improvements for the website. I also buy voucher codes and am responsible for the smooth running of the monthly GJ Coin lottery.
My internal tasks consist of managing the company. I am the contact person for all employees and help with problems that may arise in everyday work if they cannot be solved on my own.
About me:
I was born in 1985 in Berlin Pankow and have always been interested in LEGO, electronics, computers and the internet.
When I got my first own computer (Pentium 1 with 75 MHz, 8 MB RAM, 630 MB hard disk) at the age of 12 (1997), I immediately started to get involved with technology. After I discovered an AOL CD with "50 hours of free Internet" in the trade magazine Computer-Bild, it was clear to me: I had to have such a drive!
I equipped the computer with 32 MB RAM and a Mitsumi CD-ROM drive from the flea market and dreamed of being able to go on the Internet one day...
It wasn't until I was 14 that I got a 56k modem and was able to access the "selfhtml project" (learning course for simple web development) and started to get involved with developing websites. That's how I ended up putting my first internet portal online in 2004, where you could upload pictures to the internet.
I enjoyed developing and maintaining websites so much that school became a secondary matter at some point. So after the 10th grade of Realschule, I decided against transferring to the gymnasiale Aufbaustufe. Then I started school-based training to become a technical assistant for electronics and data technology. I was one of the youngest in the school, not wealthy and not from West Berlin like everyone else in the class. I was an outsider and somehow felt out of place in this school.
In the end, this led to me having to leave the school after one year due to my poor academic performance.
However, starting my professional life without training was not an option for my parents either, so they asked me to "at least" look for a vocational training.
Fortunately, due to my previous knowledge in the field of IT and electronics, I quickly found a suitable apprenticeship and quickly felt at home in the new company.
During my apprenticeship as an IT systems electronics technician, I got to know Counter at my training company. He was the last apprentice who had completed his training as an application developer shortly before me and knew everything you need to know as an apprentice.
We had lunch together, talked about our private internet projects and otherwise worked on various projects in the company. Even during my apprenticeship, I had the ambition to earn enough money with internet advertising to be able to live from it. And so, in my spare time, I concentrated exclusively on the further development of my website, where Counter often helped me and solved problems.
He was already a better programmer than me back then 😉.
After my apprenticeship, I had to make a decision.
Continue working in the company as a temp (there wasn't enough work) or start my own business, and at 19 I said to myself: "I can earn the few euros I need to live on each month online. - At that age you don't have any expectations, I just needed money to eat and had no idea about banks, taxes and social security.
A lot of ambition, but also a bit of luck, ensured that the newly founded company bore fruit and after a few months I was able to finance a pretty good life with the income from the internet. (At least until the taxman came and the cycle of prepayments took its course).
For many years, from 2004 until the beginning of 2018 to be precise, I was self-employed in Germany. My dream was always to build the best websites, but I quickly realised that this was not possible on my own. So I opened an office in Berlin, hired people and grew my business steadily.
Around 2010, I came into contact with the gambling industry. At that time I often went to real gambling halls and casinos with friends. Every Sunday, we went gambling together after dinner - until we knew every gambling hall in Berlin...
In 2014, I got to know the first version of GambleJoe and also Daniel. My concern at the time was an online casino win that had not been paid out. Just one year later, Daniel and I got to know each other personally, hit it off right away and started the joint redevelopment of GambleJoe.

Towards the end of 2017, the desire grew in me to leave Germany and look for a new place to live. So in February 2018, I founded my company in Malta and emigrated just a few weeks later.
Malta has so many positive aspects for me that I have not regretted the move until today.
Not only the lower taxes, but also the good weather, the lower pollen count and also the more peaceful and relaxed life on the island have their appeal for me.
Overall, I am very happy here and can only imagine returning to Germany at the moment with many disadvantages and circumstances.

Software developer
In the GambleJoe team since 1st May. 2015
It's not a bug, it's a feature
Usually available Mon-Thu from 07:30 - 15:00
My responsibilities at GambleJoe include developing, implementing and maintaining new features and troubleshooting existing features. Currently in both the graphical and programming areas.
About me:
I was born in 1977 in the so-called Speckgürtel of Berlin in the GDR. I only came into contact with technical gadgets after reunification. Before that, it was more something for families with "special" connections.
Shortly after reunification, I was given a C64 with a monitor, floppy drive and 9-pin printer. In my first computer science class at school, we worked with Basic on the small computer KC 85/2. Alongside the C64, Basic was of course a suitable introduction for me and I was already fairly familiar with it. This time seems to have left its mark on me somehow. My interest was aroused and burned brightly.
Privately, trying out games and programmes was soon no longer enough. How could I change something or how could I develop something like that myself? So I started changing source codes or developing ideas myself. Later I switched to a 386, which opened the rest of the doors to development.
The computer science lessons at the grammar school were quite poor at that time, however, because it was also new to the respective teachers. The tasks were usually done quickly and I had time to help others or to help the teachers find errors in their programmes.

After graduating from high school, I went to university to study computer science with a minor in stochastics. This was the first time I came into direct contact with the Internet, as a lot of information was made available on the university's website. However, I felt that a lot of things didn't fit together in this degree programme at the time, so after 4 semesters I decided that the degree programme was just too dry for me and went in a new direction. To get a degree, I did an apprenticeship as an IT specialist for application development and worked for several years in a company that specialised in embedded development. There was also a trainee there for IT system electronics named Matthias. I had already been involved with some internet projects in the years before and so we quickly found common ground.
After Matthias left the company, I stayed with the company for almost 10 more years, but still worked on internet projects in my spare time.
In the last 3 years at this company, I had already shortened my time there and worked part-time for Matthias. Then in 2013 came the complete change. From then on, it was all about our internet projects, with GambleJoe becoming our main project. I first came into contact with the topic of online casinos through the project itself. After that I played from time to time, but either for informational reasons or just for fun on low stakes. Most of my free time is spent with my family and doing voluntary work in the club for over 20 years.

Bei Fragen gerne via Communicator melden
Mostly available from Monday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., occasionally also at the weekend.
My job is to take care about the forum together with my colleagues and also to take care of general content work, such as adding current slots and assigning them to the individual providers. Editing the demos and editing the winning videos.
If you have any general questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me".
About me:
My name is Julian and I was born and raised near Stuttgart.
I first came into contact with gambling when we used to go to our local pub and a good old friend pointed out the slot machines. Even though I, as a Swabian, had little understanding at first, my first free spins on the Book of Ra immediately captivated me and sparked my interest.

When my brother Daniel started to bring the "GambleJoe" project to life, I was of course very interested to see it from the outside and it was just very nice for me to see how much passion and heart and soul he put into the project. In short, I was just proud of him for what he created!

In 2017, I had a small turning point in my professional life and felt the need to reorient myself. My brother immediately offered me to join his project and shortly after I left for Malta!

Arbeitszeiten: Montag, Dienstag, Donnerstag 16-0 Uhr // Wochenende 10-18 Uhr
Mostly available from 16-0 h and on weekends from 10-18 h
My tasks at Gamblejoe include making sure that you don't go nuts in the forum and that all rules are followed, ;-) I also help my colleagues to do necessary work in the background.
About me:
I've only been with Gamblejoe since October 2022 and have been actively supporting the team ever since. I lived in Malta from 2014 to 2017 and worked for a number of sports betting providers there. When I went back to my hometown of Bremen, I realized that I missed the small island in the Mediterranean after all. I then thought for a long time in which direction my professional life should develop, and the cold, sometimes hectic or unrelaxed Germany bothered me.

The gaming industry brings its own set of challenges and I'm convinced that together as a community we can get through it better. In everyday life you often experience a bumpy society, here we cultivate the opposite.
