It's that Time of Year Again! Need your input for the 2016 Meister Awards!
Best and Worst of Online Gambling - Meister Awards for 2016 - I need your input!
Yep, once again a year has whizzed by and the Casinomeister Awards are being perlustrated, ranked, and written. Just like last year, and the year before, and the year before that, and that one, etc., etc., this is your chance to suggest new and interesting categories, awards, recipients, or any other input for that matter.
For the newbies, The Casinomeister Awards are dished out right after the Xmas break - usually during the third week of January. It's an "event of the year" which has been held since 2001.
For quite a number of people, these are the only awards that matter... Screw the rest, these are the best.
The most recent years:
I could use input on best/worst categories. Stupid casino tricks - worst named, and/or anything else you can think of.
With your input - I will be putting together a short list for the Best Casino 2016. The short list will be voted on (in a secret vote) by the Casinomeister Advisory Group.
So, who will it be?

Well it's been a BAD year for scamming twats with bent software. I feel we need a new category for Scheisshaus Kasinos caught using fake servers.
We already have a category for dumbass casino names, this year seems to be concentrated on the nether regions with ARES (Rogue) Bumbet Mr. Ringo (the pile cream) etc.
I can't say anything has stood out this year other than 32red continue to drop (well out of top 30 rated now) and some decent new casinos have taken up the mantle, so thus far seems last year's awards may not see too many changes? Who knows? Everyone chip in and we'll see....
P.S Spintee has also been far more discreet about his browsing habits too.....
PPS: I'd like to see a vote/general consensus on 'SLOT OF THE YEAR' - given that this year me and some others have consistently posted and video-reviewed new major releases there is a rich seam of opinion to be had. I really think this would be a good category to add!
We've had Cleopatra Plus, Paranormal Activity, Queen Of Riches, Buffalo Blitz, Lost Vegas, 7 Sins, Motorhead etc.
Maybe an opinion here.......?

I'd agree that there should be a "Best Slot Release of 2016" award. It could even be sub-catted into Best NetEnt release of 2016, Best

So yeah, there's something for you to do Mr. D, compile a list of 2016 releases to aid us in our vote selections. Get to work mate
PS You'll thank me for it later, or rather your arsehole will, because this task will inevitably cause your ahem....inner sanctum (rectum) to suffer less ahem...intrusion from the Rhino's big horn.

I defo think slot of the year ... as its been a busy time for developers, granted much crap churned out but some good ones also.
Plus something with regards transparency and responsible gambling as this has been a hot topic this year. Players joining up
then getting funds denied due to not understanding the implications of SE. Or casinos that have not listed sites in there group
there in tripping players up who did SE or TAB only to be denied winnings. Granted a tricky one as this is also open to player abuse.
But maybe an award for the best RS features, easy to access etc. They are a number of accredited casinos who really stand out from
the rest in this respect. A social responsibility award if you like.

Maybe they won't win that award but they should be considered here. That button for locking your withdrawal so you can't reverse it is really worthy of an award or three
if you fall I'll be there

There's been a particular forum member that impressed me this year. h
How about an award; "Forum Member of the Year"? I think in the past there was an award for worst forum member.
They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, "In them is great sin and benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit."

Those who have provided not just helpful information to newbies etc but members who take time out of their days to provide other helpful and informative stuff.
Dunovers 'New slot releases' and Blathaons
RTP breakdown posts spring to mind as starting examples. As well as the more active Minions.

Good to see that it's already getting some recognition in the form of an award nomination.
But here's hoping they win that EGR gong tonight. It certainly deserves recognition in the form of some "hardware" (trophies), not just nominations.
