Erik is from Denmark and was a history major until he moved to Malta in 2004, where he spent 6 years managing several multi-million-dollar online igaming companies. He is fluent in Danish, Swedish and English. 

Before moving to Malta he was the poker site manager of the former biggest Danish casino & poker community. Within this company he later started  the first white-label skin on the Merge Gaming Network and wrote more than 5000 forum posts on Casino.dk.

After 6 years dedicated to this company he resigned to seek new adventures working with a group of Fins who the following year won the iGB award "Best overall affiliate 2010". This was a time in his life that he enjoyed very much. Erik says that Finland will always have a special place in his heart.

Erik Smith has been the CEO of following sites: Casino.dk (Oct 2004- May 2009), PokerNordica ( Jan 2007- May 2009), Pokerisivut.com PowerPoker, Coinflip.com & Kollikopelit (June 2009- Jan 2011).  

Playing cards has been a passion for Erik ever since he was 7 years old and his grand farther taught him how to play a card game called whist. One random night in 1998 while browsing the internet Erik found the rules of Hold'em, Omaha and many other variations of poker. At the age of 15 he started playing poker for money with his friends and from the age of 22 he has traveled the world playing poker.
