PDF page 123:
The router can also be configured using HOCON, as you might expect, and as you can see,
the configuration is mostly the same as the broadcast pool, with the exception that you specify
the name for the round robin pool that is to be used.
(my emphasis)
akka.actor.deployment {
  /smsgateway {
    router = random-pool
    nr-of-instances = 5

The HOCON fragment refers to random-pool, but the text mistakenly refers to round robin pool.
