Founder’s Background

I am Rhondaxin Vivancoroon, the founder of Kickstart Play Hard. With over three decades in the global casino and gaming industry, I have dedicated my career to innovating and enhancing the world of gambling and sports entertainment. My journey from a young enthusiast to a seasoned expert is a story of passion, dedication, and relentless pursuit of excellence.

Early Life and Education

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, and from a young age, I had a keen interest in games and sports. This fascination led me to pursue a degree in Business Administration with a focus on Hospitality and Gaming Management at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). During my time at UNLV, I immersed myself in the vibrant casino culture of Las Vegas, gaining firsthand experience and knowledge that would later become the foundation of my professional career.

Professional Journey

After graduating, I began my career in the gaming industry, starting as a floor manager at a local casino. My sharp acumen and innovative approach quickly caught the attention of industry veterans, and I soon found myself managing some of the largest casinos in Las Vegas. My expertise extended beyond operational management; I was instrumental in implementing advanced gaming technologies and introducing new gaming formats that enhanced the player experience.

In the early 2000s, I expanded my horizons by taking on international roles that involved consulting for emerging casino markets in Asia and Europe. This global perspective and understanding of diverse gaming cultures allowed me to bring fresh insights and strategies to the establishments I worked with.

Founding Kickstart Play Hard

In 2010, I decided to channel my extensive knowledge and experience into a new venture—Kickstart Play Hard. I envisioned a platform that would not only cover the latest developments in the global casino scene but also provide comprehensive insights into gaming rules, strategies, and trends. With its headquarters at 4809 Cedarstone Drive, Toledo, OH 43613, Kickstart Play Hard quickly became a go-to resource for casino enthusiasts, poker players, and sports fans alike.

Vision and Mission

My vision for Kickstart Play Hard was clear: to create a platform that offered reliable, timely, and engaging content about the gaming industry. I believed that a well-informed player is a better player, and this philosophy drove the content strategy of the platform. Under my leadership, Kickstart Play Hard has grown to cover a wide range of topics, including detailed insights into world casinos, gaming rules, poker strategies, and sports news.

Personal Life

Beyond my professional achievements, I am committed to philanthropic efforts and responsible gambling initiatives. I regularly collaborate with organizations that promote safe and responsible gaming practices. In my free time, I enjoy playing poker, traveling, and spending time with my family.

My impact on the gaming industry is something I take great pride in. My innovative ideas and leadership have not only shaped the operations of several casinos but also influenced the way gaming content is consumed and appreciated. Through Kickstart Play Hard, I continue to inspire and educate a new generation of gamers, ensuring that my legacy of excellence and passion for the gaming world lives on.
