What does a data analyst actually do? (and don't say analyse data)
You're a braver man than me Hutch... that's what I really wanted to know but the answer seemed a bit obvious heh. We could do with inserting a data analyst into one of the big bookies for an inside view on how they work...
I've been here a few weeks but only just noticed this thread.
I'm Chris, I'm 51 years old and live in North West London. I work as a forensic accountant for a Government agency specialising in company fraud investigations. I did a few casino bonuses years ago in the "good old days" but didn't really have time to put much effort into it. I was recently laid up for a couple of months with a slipped disc which provided the opportunity to spend some more time on bonus bashing.
I work in the Retail and Finance sector for Shop Direct (we own Littlewoods, Littlewoods Direct, Great Universal, Kays, Choice, Empire, Additions, Marshall Ward). I have access to the customer database, purchases, target prospects, and pretty much any business process that has data available we store it and I can get at it.

I really enjoy my job, each day is completely different to the next. I love the fact that I get at the raw data, turn it into something useful and provide insightful analysis for our business.
I've done a lot of SQL, but that was before I changed jobs. I've bought something from littlewoods before, make me the winner, i'll give you half!!
I should imagine you are going to have a pretty busy time in the near future!

Careful, Andy loves SQL... I showed him a query to run to find all users who had zero post count but not zero PM count and he went bananas!!!
That's about as far as my SQL goes... I do understand a few programming languages on a functional level (I just don't write very quick code!). I like unix administration
Just signed up. - been lurking for a few weeks.. and been MB'ing for about 3 months. - made a decent enough profit, having done quite alot of the easy sign ups. Going to move into some of the bookies with heftier WR soon.
Looking to pick up some tips from the more experienced posters here! - and am thinking of looking at the Casino offers a bit more seriously. - only recently done the PAF bonus and the 32red 320%'er.
I'm an IT manager and live in Gloucestershire - though only moved down from the Midlands a few years ago.
Hello there, i have been looking at your Avatar for three minutes now and still have no idea what it is? Can I have a clue please?

I'm a professional card player, I found this site while looking for information on sports betting. I often get bonus offers from bookies in my mailbox so I was hoping to find out how best to take advantage.
