Sophie Manuera life story

Sophie Manuera is an indigenous Maori on her father’s side. Growing up surrounded by European culture, while trying not to forget the traditions of her ancestors on her father’s side. Believes that the times of inequality and oppression of her people, brought positive karma to her descendants, which is a kind of “recompense” for the suffering. She uses her karmic luck to gamble.

After graduation, Sophie took up an activity in which her paternal relatives are successful. The Maori put on shows for tourists, introducing them to the cultural heritage of their people. From the age of 17 the girl joined her relatives, although her parents insisted on getting a full-fledged education.

Sophie gave in to the persuasion of her family and after a year she went to university. She chose the IT field as her profession, which led her to join the BNC.

At the age of 22, she got her first exposure to a casino in Oakland. The atmosphere of the gambling establishment amazed her. The casino was filled with lots of gaming tables and the first mechanical machines. Sophie could not have guessed at the time that this hobby would take her for many years, and possibly for a lifetime.

On the very first day the Maori girl won her first money at roulette. Later Sophie mastered the most popular card games – poker and blackjack. Often she played them as well, but it remained preferable those entertainments where the development of events directly depends on luck.

Acquaintance with the online casino industry

In 2016, after being out sick with the flu for an extended period of time, Sophie began to learn more about online gambling sites. After reading many reviews and forums, finding information about licenses, and comparing several clubs, Sophie made a choice. She registered at the first online casino.

More than 5 years have passed since she met the first online casino. The thousands of slot machines available right from home made her give up going to land-based clubs forever.

Sophie continues to pass on knowledge of Maori cultural heritage. In 2017 she also found marital happiness by marrying an Englishman. She successfully combines her work in the gambling industry at BNC, family life and hobbies. Working in the BNC, which aims to develop and improve sites in the gaming environment, she still combines it with betting in casinos. As an experienced player, she actively shares her knowledge with readers.

Sophie’s name often appears in the tournament tables of online casinos, because she actively participates in competitions. And you can also meet her among the dressed-up Maori with ta-moko under her lower lip if you walk the streets of Auckland.
