Article Contribution Guidelines
MrDeposit accepts limited outside contributions from professionals in the gambling industry, including but not limited to; Sports and eSports journalist and analyst, professional poker players, professional sports bettors, and passionate esports and sports fans. Here’s a little bit about how that works.
What We Look For
Every article submitted for consideration should be interesting to the readers of MrDeposit, the piece must have the tone of MrDeposit, and completely written by a person and not some PR department. We like articles that inform our readers on news, matchups, trades, injuries, hiring/firing of team key staff members, and how it affect the odds. Also, topics that advance conversations and make our readers engage in the conversation (ie. top 5 teams to surprise you in 2016, top 3 poker players of the year). We appreciate lively, polished writing that balances detailed research or news with examples that help illustrate your point of view or fun and memorable anecdotes that get your point across.
While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in sports, poker or gambling to support your ideas/opinion, over-the-top self-promotion (of yourself or your company) lessens the chance we will publish your piece. Same goes for over the top promoting of someone else.
MrDeposit.com prefers submissions from contributors who are passionate and knowledgeable about the types of topics that MrDeposit regularly covers: Casino News, Poker News, Sports News (NFL, NHL, NBA, etc.), eSports (CSGO, LoL, Dota2, etc.), Matchups, Predictions, Trades, Injuries, Hiring/Firing, and opinionated pieces like “top list” (ie. Top 10 Running Backs In 2016)
How To Submit
The typical article on MrDeposit is 500 words or more. We cannot pay for contributed stories, however, if they’re informative and engaging to read for our audience, we will promote the article, just like we would any other story published on MrDeposit.com.
Sections available for contribution at the moment are Sports, eSports, Poker, and Casino. Send in your complete, unpublished articles intended for these sections of MrDeposit, using our contact page. Please do not offer abstracts, press releases, outlines, or pitches.
