Case Study

Hello everybody! My name is Holger and I’m a designer-turned-developer from Denmark. In the last couple of years, I’ve been working on a solitaire gaming website called Online Solitaire, which features the most popular solitaire games such as Klondike, Spider, and Freecell.

At the moment Online Solitaire earns about $1,500 each month and I hope/expect that number to go up in the future.
