How it Works

Meet Our Friends

Norah, Kia, and Finn. You might know people just like them. You might be someone just like them. They’re all smart, charming, interesting people. And they all make a point of knowing how the games they play work. Like you do, right? Of course! Check out their videos to get to know them—and their approach to gambling—a little better.
