Here is the Q/A session with the SlotsUp.com founder.
What is SlotsUp?
SlotsUp – is the most extensive online collection of slots in the world.
What is the purpose of the SlotsUp project, and what will visitors find on this site?
The project aims to collect and provide users with information about all slots so that every user can find a slot game for every taste.
And since the section with casino brands is still growing, in addition to the opportunity to find game reviews for free, the user has the opportunity to choose a casino brand and try their luck for real money.
What problem is the project designed to solve?
- Find something to play in the casino.
- Get acquainted with the games without spending a penny.
- Find out where to play your favorite games in real casinos.
What was the idea of creating the project? What is the creation date?
I really liked the slots, and I wanted to make a great site that would gather all the online slots in the world in one place and allow users to enjoy the game without spending money. And all the information about slot games would be enough to make it easy to select a game for any player in online slots.
So in 2015, on a warm day in May, while reading “The Little Prince,” I noticed the cover on which the prince was standing on the planet, and I wanted to make a kind of space design. And the name of the project was chosen for this, and SlotsUp appeared – as the project aimed to grow and develop ONLY UP, to the stars!
The start of the live project took place in the late summer of 2015.
Who helped create SlotsUp?
The project was formed by 3 people. The project started with the Founder, who came up with the idea and created a brand, drew web design, and painted his vision. And later engaged in its development and promotion online.
A programmer turned to design and ideas into code on a website.
And a content manager who collected all the information about the slot game formed a collection and worked with people who started game descriptions.
When did the project start to bring the first profit?
The first commissions were received somewhere in the early spring of 2016, about 6-7 months after the launch.
When did you start hiring the first employees?
There was a core team of 3 people. And almost immediately, we hired freelancers, most reviewers, and translators.
When did the first SlotsUp regional versions appear?
The first language versions began to appear a year after the project’s launch, i.e., sometime in late summer 2016.
What does the SlotsUp team look like? Who is involved in the project?
SlotsUp team is constantly evolving and growing:
- freelancers of many specializations
- partnership manager
- web developers
- and other specialists
How have the goals of the project changed?
The first goal was to collect all the slot games. Later, as the audience’s demand changed from “what to play” to “where to play,” – we began to develop a section with online casino brands. Now, we decided to cover more types of games, not just slot games, but to add to the collection such games as roulette, blackjack, and others.
Well, players are also interested in how to try the game in a real online casino on more favorable terms, so we decided to get different types of bonuses for players.
What is the SlotsUp goal now?
Become one of the largest casino portals, and cover as much information as possible to be helpful to players.
Were there any awards given to the project? What is the recognition of the project among the industry? What is the reputation of the project?
SlotsUp.com was shortlisted as Best Affiliate Newcomer by iGB Awards 2018. Some of the other sites often compare and align to SlotsUp in terms of design and information on the site. One of the project’s main features is the trustful and correct information about online casinos and games.
What are/were the project partners?
There were 888, LeoVegas, Casumo, Playamo, and many others. Some game developers share their insights or marketing materials to make slot reviews clear and complete with us.
Also, media partnerships were once established, but it was a long time ago. But you can always start new ones!
Now we are working with the best teams in developing the site technically.
What should a visitor do next on the site once he has read this “About Us” page?
If a novice player either wants to try casino games, give him either a list of the most popular or provide links to different types of games so he can go, choose a game and test.
If the player is already experienced and feels more excitement, then offer either a casino or casino bonuses.
