MisspellingListen. We’re all human. We all make mistakes from time-to-time and we’re not all the best spellers. And with auto-correct being present on most phones these days, some very awkward situations can arise from a badly placed/misspelled word. In online gambling, however, it appears a lot of us are pretty bad spellers. According to a recent study by Search Engine Watch, the UK has the largest numbers of misspellings, specifically when it comes to gambling terms, in our search engines. Whoops.

Victoria's Mobile Casino Blog Project

When Victoria started writing for Droid Slots, she had never played on a mobile slot in her life. Although it’s hard to believe given her current level of expertise, it’s been a steep learning curve for her, and the last few months have seen her wading through a whole new word of games and casinos. We hate to miss a great opportunity, as so had Victoria write about her experiences in her very own blogging section of the site. Our hope is that other players who are finding their feet can use Victoria’s discoveries as a guide to their own play. As the way she engages with casinos gets more sophisticated, so do her explanations of how to deal with the new experiences. If you’re a new player just starting out, or ever a seasoned player looking for a good read, Victoria’s blog project section is a  great place to look.
