Casinomeister has been in operation since June 1998, a lifetime in cyber years. One of the first online casino portals, Casinomeister was quick to realize that this industry had failed to establish basic governing principles that fostered security and trust among online gamblers. As a result, reputable casinos were constantly forced to carry the burden of the rogue casinos which failed to maintain a standard of quality required by the online gambler. Casinomeister, recognizing the need for these basic standards, stepped into this void, and established itself as a beacon of light guiding the Internet gambler to safe and trustworthy online gaming establishments.
Bryan Bailey is the Director of Casinomeister
"My involvement with the online gaming industry has been mainly via Casinomeister and by attending conferences and exhibits from around the world, meeting casino operators, managers, software developers, and other portal operators. I have always been a players' advocate, but I am a casino advocate as well - basically: an advocate of fair play. The established entities in the online casino world understand that Casinomeister makes a difference."
Bryan Bailey has been running Casinomeister for eighteen years. He provides the direction of the site (thus "Director") and writes most of its content. He publishes three newsletters, and the occasional video.
Bryan Bailey also provides consultations for iGaming casino representatives. He has also has been called as an expert witness for iGaming in a high profile lawsuit in the High Court of Justice in London.
Over the past several years, Casinomeister has hosted one of the largest and most active player communities where people are free to discuss a wide variety of topics related to casinos, and then some off the wall subjects as well. We also collect data on casinos via our Meister Minions - players who record casino payout times and other important data.
Casinomeister also maintains a list of casinos "accredited" by some of the most stringent standards on the Internet - this includes the vetting of casinos via our Baptism by Fire period. Not every casino passes the test.
Casinomeister hosts the infamous "Rogue Casino" section. In fact, the term "rogue casino" was first coined here in 1999. These are casinos that are either violating good business ethics, or simply totally undesirable. Stay away from the Rogues.
Additionally, we have a casino complaints center that has been in operation for years. In 2000, the term "Pitch a Bitch" was coined to describe the complaints we would "pitch" to casino operators. In 2016, we became certified arbitrators (internationally) and changed the name from Pitch-a-Bitch to Player ArBitration maintaining the infamous accronym - PAB. At the end of 2015, Casinomeister had processed over 5200 submitted casino complaints.
And since 1998 - over €4.6 million has been recovered.

Life Before the Internet
Bryan Bailey has an extensive military background. He was stationed for eight years at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina as a paratrooper in a line company as an Airborne Combat Engineer (27th Engrs.). Besides being a private - doing fun things that privates get to do, he advanced to demolitions specialist, assistant squad leader, then on to squad leader. He was in a "rough terrain" platoon, jumping into thick jungles and blowing up things. As a squad leader, his company was on rotation basis in Central America during the Contra/Sandinista/El Salvador adventures. He served the entire eight year Ft. Bragg tour in the Rapid Deployment Force - his last year there he was a master parachutist.
Transferring to Germany from the States, he was assigned as a Squad Leader in a mechanized combat engineer unit (9th Engineers), and spent time during this "European Holiday" surveying the East German border, watching the wall come down, and acquainting himself to good Bavarian Beer. But then his unit was deployed to the desert for the First Gulf War where he was decorated (Bronze Star) after his men (7 guys) took over 253 Iraqi prisoners of war and destroyed millions of $$ of Iraqi military equipment. After his three year stint in Germany, he went on to become a drill sergeant at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina.
At this point, he said "The hell with this," and left the Army after eleven solid years. He has been known to make both casino operators and players do pushups over the phone; a few times by email.
