In January 2011 an app was released on the iTunes web site. It was targeted at slots players. Over the last two months it has been found useful and is beginning to feature in blogs and discussions at online casino forums. The app is the WinLoss Slot Player's Diary and it was developed by David Walstead's company Sandcroft Inc. It sells on iTunes only for $8.
Many serious slots players like to keep records of their wagering and refer to this information to plan future wagering action. But this entails making the necessary data entries or hand-written notes. Walstead realized that there was an opportunity in getting software to the donkey work. The aspects that he began to consider included the importance of tracking online slot action, the time and practicality of checking and collecting gambling information while playing online slot games and the feasibility of keeping track of where one has played and what bonuses were offered. All this led to the development of the new app.
The WinLoss Slot Player's Diary allows the user to generate reports that display the slot player's activity at various sites. It also assesses which among the online slot games is the most generous. And moreover it creates documentation to support tax reports at the end of the year. This is importance in jurisdictions where professional players are allowed to deduct their wagering losses from their income. Results may be viewed directly on screen or exported in pdf formats.
The application can be used on an iPhone or iPod. While the online casino slot machine is being played the software tracks information from the game. And full data Backup and Restore functions are available. Players can sort data by location of play; type of slot action; day/time/week; and specific game. A recent upgrade permits an unlimited number of entries.
At various online casino forums players who have used the WinLoss Slot Player's Diary have appreciated its capabilities. KAJ44 said, "It is nice 2 have this app. on your telephone. This application keeps track of your wins & losses while your gaming is still fresh on your mind." Neal222 said, "I have been using this app for a month now and find it provides a quick and easy way to collect the details of my slot play.
The interface is easy to learn and the reports will be useful at tax time. A job well done!" Not everyone has been as appreciative. GR_Marcie has found that the app hangs whenever she has tried to use it and has given up on it.
