TheWp7Phones began life back in August 2016 by Alex Tutor, who wanted to create a useful resource for fans of video slots. He had grown tired of doing countless searches online for slots he was interested in, only to find poor quality or out of date information.

Alex saw a gap in the market and set about creating a site where slots players could access lots of information about their favorite slots, as well as free play versions of the games and watch videos that explained them more clearly.
