- Platin Casino is offering an eight-week job posting to analyze The Simpsons.
- The theory that The Simpsons predicted major world events has gained traction in recent years.

LONDON - Did The Simpsons really predict everything? One casino seems to believe that the answer is yes.
Platin Casino, an online casino available in the United Kingdom, is offering a job to any Simpsons superfan who is willing to analyze all 33 seasons of the show for potential tips about what the future holds.
Per the Casino’s release on the subject:
“The Simpsons Series Analyst will get paid to note down standout events from the show, to help us predict the probability of each one happening.”
The release goes on to justify the online gambling job opening with the following:
“Now if you haven’t already heard of The Simpsons predicting the future, this theory has circulated globally after some of the show’s storylines have come true years after airing. Events occurring in past series that have become reality include Donald Trump’s presidency, the 2013 horse meat scandal, the coronavirus pandemic, and more recently, the fuel shortage across Britain.”
This Job Is Only Temporary
The analyst role will only be filled for eight weeks and will be a role requiring just under 40 hours of work weekly, at 35.5.
The compensation will be £5,000 GBP, although the offer is open to those outside of the United Kingdom, and compensation will be given in other currencies as well if necessary. It comes to $6878.07 USD.
In addition, the employee will be compensated with a £75 stipend to cover the costs of Disney Plus and Wi-Fi connection while working from home.
Finally, the compensation will also include one box of donuts per week, as a tribute to the donut-loving Homer Simpson.
How To Apply To Be A Simpsons Series Analyst
The job posting is listed on Platin Casino’s website, and applications can be filled in via Google Forms.
The application itself is quite simple - it asks for name, email, date of birth, and location, along with an explanation of why one would be a good fit for the role.
This is not a traditional hiring process - the online casino is likely to be interested in the PR benefits of this move.
