Online Slots Site’s 10th Birthday Celebrations Conclude -- Birthday Contest Winner Announced

This month, – among the very first online casinos -- has been celebrating their tenth birthday. They’ve launched a Spanish version of their all-slots-and-video-poker site ( as well as a new game at their 3D casino ( and a free slot tournament site ( A special birthday contest has awarded a $5000 vacation package to one lucky player.

There weren’t many other online casinos around when Slotland launched way back in 1998. Since then, Slotland has developed an impressive suite of online and mobile games and has earned a reputation for being one of the most reliable and trustworthy online casino sites.

This month’s birthday celebrations included a week-long Birthday Contest. All players making a deposit of $100 or more between October 1st and 8th were automatically entered in the free contest. In a random draw a Swedish player known as “FACTOR” won a $5000 vacation package to the destination of his choice.

“I’ve only been playing at Slotland for a few years,” said the lucky winner. “They have a great selection of games that you won’t find anywhere else, and their customer service staff has always been extra helpful. With winter coming to Sweden I think I’ll use this prize to go somewhere warm and sunny!”

With the tenth birthday coming up, Slotland checked their records to see if they had any current players that had been with them since the early days. They found quite a few players that play regularly on the site that have been playing at Slotland for many years.

“I’m not a real high roller, said a player known as “NICK” that’s been playing at Slotland since the early days. “My budget is tight but I’ve always managed to get good entertainment value from Slotland! I usually bet between $.50 and $5.00. Sometimes when I’m doing really well I’ll bet the progressive but otherwise I bet smaller just to keep going for awhile and have fun! I just won $600 on Treasure box which happens to be my favorite when I'm in the mood for something other than poker machines. A few years ago I hit $600 on the Striking 7's game – it is a bonus type machine. You can hit pretty big without a royal, just by getting the four 7's. I love that concept.”

“I don't have a strategy,” confessed the player. “I would like to say that I do, but I tend to be very impulsive! If I were to say I had a strategy it would be that I start out low and slowly work my way up (as far as bets go) and stop if I am not lucky, but that is not very often the case!”

Slotland celebrated their 10th birthday at CAP Euro last month in Barcelona. While in Spain, the company also celebrated the launch of their new Spanish site and introduced affiliates to the new 3D casino. Photos and video clips from these events are available from the news blog:
