|Slots site Slotland.com is one of five finalists in the “Best Gambling Company” category of the inaugural ME Awards. |
The gala awards banquet in London tomorrow night will see Slotland achieve recognition as one of the first sites to offer real-money gambling for mobile phones and PDAs.
Slotland.com launched its first mobile phone game a year ago and has been adding original new slot machines to its mobile gambling suite ever since.
Martin Smith, Slotland.com’s Mobile Games Manager, said, 'One thing we know from eight years online is that players like to try new games…and that they don’t want to see the same games they’ve seen at a dozen other sites.'
The first annual Mobile Entertainment (ME) Awards are produced by Mobile Entertainment Magazine to honour excellence among those that provide content for mobile devices. The award for Best Gambling Company will be given to a company that has created a downloadable gambling game or set up a server platform for handling billing and player registrations – or both.
Hannah Morante of Slotland.com, said, 'Some online casinos just think about being as cost-effective as possible and 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.'
Slotland.com is no stranger to winning awards having been 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.
