|September 6, 2006 (London, UK) – When Slotland.com launched their first online slot machinesin 1998, the Internet was new and online gaming was in its infancy. Eight years later, the pioneering site is still one of the most popular and trusted online casinos and is one of the first to venture into the new mobile gambling frontier.|
Although technical advances over the years have made things like payment processing simpler and more secure, Slotland.com still offers the same simple, safe and friendly environment that players, especially older players, are comfortable with.
“Technology has changed a lot, but the way we approach our business has stayed the same,” says Hannah Morante of Slotland.com. “We keep it simple -- our games are easy to use, no downloading. And we treat our customers with the human touch.”
Over the years, Slotland.com has created nine unique slot machines – some that offer simple fun to newbies and some with more complex strategies for experienced slots aficionados.
“Some online casinos use more technologies and just think about how to make their business as cost-effective as possible but forget that their players are people – humans. We think communication with our members should be personal, not fulfilled by some external customer service that doesn’t care,” said Morante.
Slotland.com was voted “Most Unique Slot Site” and “Best Progressive Jackpot Site” by Strictly Slots Magazine readers and was named “Best Web TV” in a Gambling Online Magazine poll. They were recently selected as a finalist in the “Best Mobile Gambling Company” category of the ME (Mobile Entertainment) Awards to be given in London this month.
Asked why they’ve stuck with Slotland.com over the years, players mention Slotland’s warm customer service and quick payouts, and they love how long they can play with just a few dollars, but mostly they talk about fun:
“I love to watch the wheels go round almost as much as I like winning!” JAZZY60, USA
“Slotland’s games are definitely original and are by far the best and clearest to be played. Fast loading and easiest games to play with great payouts!! I love the bonus spin features on magic and golden 8!!! “ FRANK35
“I have been around for 70 odd years now and have played in too many places.... Slotland's people have always gone the extra distance to accommodate.” GEORGIE1874
“I've been to Atlantic City and Harrah’s Casino in North Carolina and I lost my shirt – and didn’t have near as much fun as I have with SLOTLAND! “ GNAT
”I appreciate the professionalism of your casino. Everything is first class. Then to top if off the games are so much fun to play!' NANA122
I always win enough to keep me playing for a good while.” REELPLAYER
When Slotland went online, mobile phones were relatively rare and certainly no one was thinking about using them to play slot machines. Difficult as it may be to predict the future in this fast-changing entertainment business, Martin Smith, Slotland’s Manager of Mobile Games, is excited about what’s to come.
“It’s a whole different generation of players that uses their mobile for entertainment. There’s millions of future slots players out there who’ve yet to make their first spin!”” said Smith. “And as the mobile platform adapts more standards we’ll be able to design more and more exciting mobile games.”
“One thing we know is that although slots players may have their favourites they also have an insatiable appetite for new games,” adds Morante, “I predict we’ll always have Lucky Stars – but I can’t even imagine what our games developers have up their sleeves for our next eight years!”
