    Dunovers 'New slot releases' and Blathaons
    RTP
    breakdown posts spring to mind as starting examples. As well as the more active Minions.
    Agreed on all counts , Dunovers vids rants n all. And Blathaons slot break downs are as a good as it gets. They should be carved in gold and hung in the National Gallery

    A few more suggestions for the
    CM
    awards.

    Last year I believe vinyl got a kind of "Lifetime Achievement" award.

    How about we make this a permanent annual award (it doesn't appear to have been given in 2013 or 2014)?
    Kind of like our equivalent to BAFTA's Fellowship. But obviously without the golden trophy.
    Perhaps we could call it the "
    CM
    Hall Of Fame" award?
    Obviously, vinyl cannot be awarded it this year, as he is already "inducted".
    And perhaps just as a little extra, they have
    CM
    Hall of Famer added to their profile (in the same way that CAG and MM tags are shown on a
    CM
    member's profile).

    As well as the Lifetime Achievement" award we could maybe do a "
    CM
    Special Contributor for 2016" award.
    That would be based not on a
    CM
    member's longevity, but purely based on what that person brought to the
    CM
    table this year alone.

    Also, the Winner Videos thread has grown exponentially this past 12 months. We already have an award for best screenshot of the year, so how about a Best Winners Video of 2016 as well?

    We could also have an award for Best Streamer (although that might re-open a can of worms from a somewhat "heated" thread earlier this year)

    Also, to make sure Goatwack wins an award.....Best Forum Punster of 2016. *

    * I look forward to that receiving £10 M & S foodhall voucher in the post Goatie mate.

    Edit: Just read jon's post, perhaps Special Contributor for 2016 should be changed to Special ContributorS for 2016.

    I second that, I have personally thanked both Dunover and Blathaon.
    Blathaon's slot statistics is the most useful in my eyes. It's kind of like a service to the community.

    A rather big can I would say ... but I would happy to crack open the pop corn and sit back to watch the chemical shit storm that could come from such

    Surprised we are even doing this after last year and besides video slots and rizk who has been active in the forums like nobody.

    Do somewhat like the idea of forum member awards though and best slot of the year.
    Master of slots, Winner of none.

    Yes, Rizk's 'lock withdrawal' is certainly 'Innovation of the year' and although we could argue that it's still a step behind say SV/
    PP
    /Grosvenor etc. who simply don't have a reverse period it's great that a new casino who maybe haven't the infrastructure or means to implement instant w/d's have done this. A big thumbs-up and a very good candidate for best new casino despite the horrendous MT Secure SE/locked accounts confusion. Ikibu could well be there too but maybe a little too late this year to establish a lead.

    As McGameboy said, I can do a list of biggest new releases, from which we can select 'Best Slot 2016' or 'Crock of Crap 2016' and try and get 2 from each developer although with
    MG
    it will be impossible to select 2 different slots.

    Videoslots continue to stand out in the
    CM
    ratings with a colossal high score never previously seen here and after coming from nowhere just 3-4 years ago. I can't see personally any casino taking their casino of the year crown, but I'm only one CAG vote. You have casinos like Trada which are anonymous due to never doing things wrong so it's always worth a thorough consideration before choosing.

    Are there any stupid names that can rival Ares, Bumbet and Ringo?

    P.S. Here's what I'll do if possible - make a list the 20 releases with most forum interest and see if it's feasible to have a poll where you can rate them 1,2,3. This means it'll sort the wheat from the chaff which may not occur if it was just a simple single selection - I can award (or Bryan/Simmo whomever) 5 points for a 1 3 for a 2 and 1 for a 3rd. Sound OK?

    For sure we need Best / Worst slot of 2016 nominations, it's an opportunity to mock lazy game design whilst acclaiming the best ones too.

    There have been a couple of decent slots this year, surprisingly, and it acts as some form of feedback if we rightly acknowledge those.

    Many awards could be devised, I'd find something like 'Worst Promo of the Year', 'Crappest Spam Offer' amusing.

    Of course we already have the 'Most Annoying Forum Member', this could include best individual rant/ stupidity - like in the case of pitbull85 for example or even Johnnygothebon or whatever the f*ck he calls himself this week.

    Maybe even a feelgood category for those that have claimed the biggest scalps and achieved cashout greatness from nothing.

    I do appreciate the industry awards, but more forum-based awards would pique my interest further as there are so many characters to be found on this site

    Alongside best newly accredited casino maybe we could have best newly accredited casino's rep? Also a nod to the casino which presents the most promising prospect for next year. Weather it be an accredited casino or no accredited yet ( One for the future)

    There could be a special Goatie award presented to Goatie for treading a fine line constantly?

    Worst slot of 2016 ...

    Oh, I know a few that I can throw in for that ...

    Most disappointing slot provider ...

    Defo!!

    Of course all the usual categories are welcome ... Will cast my votes no problem!

    Most disappointing accredited casino, because there are a few casino's accredited but seriously have taken the piss in 2016!
    Of which some should be taken off that list i.m.h.o for several reasons.

    Can't wait to cast votes!
    In gambling many must lose in order for a few to win

    I think its going to be hard choice wise to choose casino of the year and so on. As they are many to choose from. Those that are not have already upped the game by having as few issues as they can and when they do no doubt dealing with them instantly. Of course in my opinion Video slots / Rizk are top of the pile. VS standing out in every single way I truly can not see how this can be beaten. Rizk whom I have not played often at for no other reason than I go for the casino races, and cash back are I know a rock solid outfit. But then so are Royal Panda whom I have had like ZERO issues with on the few deposits and withdraws I have done.

    Its a hard one over all as the anti has been upped
    imo
    greatly. But it shows Casinos really need need to be +10 on as many points as they can to be in with the running of anything close to an award.

    Not a task I would I like to take on in choosing the winners of this ...
