Hello fellow forum members :) ,


I thought that since we've closed the book on the 2005 season, and now we're starting a new chapter in '06, we should go back one last time and explore who did what in Casinomeister.com's most famous thread, the Winner Screenshots thread.


The "Top-20 "

Winner Screenshots
"CHAMPIONS"

*This "Top-20" ranking is based on who accumulated the most wins in credit, while posting their wins in the Winner Screenshots thread...

Now, we haven't a clue as to who cashed-out at what point, therefore, for all we know, KasinoKing could have accumulated the most winnings this year. I was just tabulating all the posts that were made, and that's all I can go on.

There were a couple of notable omissions.

- Hoffman: Why? Based on rumblings as to whether or not his posting were authentic. We haven't seen him since those accusations have arised, therefore we do not know the legitimacy of his Winner Screenshots. If they are legit (my lord), I do apologize.


- jonevegas: Why? I can't read the winning amounts. I see that he had some MONSTER wins, that were parlayed off of a $59 paycheck (very impressive). I've included his winning $20,000 (I think) in the thread that follows. My apologies to him, because in all likelyhood, he's WAY up on the list above.


Sidenote: I didn't include Simmo's! dream win of $66,241.60 over at 32Red, where in his dream, he managed to line-up 15 Thors on Thunderstruck. If you're curious as to what I'm talking about, check-out the thread, dated Feb. 3rd. In my dreams as well, but during a Free-Spins feature at $45 a spin! :notworthy


Sidenote II: I didn't count wins from casino tournaments (not that there were many of those in the first place), nor did I count full gambling sessions. IOW, like someone depositing $100, and walking away with $5,000 playing a bunch of BJ over a 6-hour period. That's great! But... that's not REALLY a Winner Screenshot. Or at least, that's not how I perceive it. If the player has a winning hand of BJ, I counted that towards the players winnings (for screenshots). They should make a seperate thread for greatest sessions (has that ever been done here... not so sure?), as opposed to just screenshots.

Who posted the most in "'05"?



The rules are straightforward. This list is for those who've posted the most Winner Screenshots. Now, in the event of a tie, I give the person who had won the most money precedence. Now, let's run-down the list.


#1
Slotster​

How many posts: 94
Recorded amount won: $134,197.60
Biggest win: $8,000 (September)
Best month: September ($58,504.05)


While Gramma did come out ahead with those monster progressive wins, I wouldn't hesitate a second to say that Slotster is the most consistent prolific poster in the Winner Screenshots thread for '05.

You want to see how consistent he was? Here we go, let's analyze his winnings by month-by-month breakdown.

January
$9,811.10​
February
$6,382.34​
March
$6,101.48​
April
$7,137.75​
May
$4,357.50​
June
$18,423.45​
July
$9,443.29​
August
$2,145.50​
September
$58,504.05​
October
$4,427.20​
November
$382.00​
December
$7,082.00​

So, for the "2005" season, Slotster averaged $11,183.13 per month. Very impressive. Ignoring the months of November (tragically low), June and especially September (which would have to be considered an aberration/or a magical stroke of genius compared to the rest of the year), Slotster still holds an overly impressive average of $6,320.90 per month. He's the only player that held any kind of consistently throughout the year. He's an MVP. Amazing stuff!! :notworthy

Sidenote: Slotster's month of September wasn't too far off the mark from matching the total of the first 8 months (prior to his MOLTEN-LAVA hot month).


Sidenote II: Again, when I say that he's consistently winning, we're talking according to what we see from his postings. No one's under the impression that people can consistently win (profit-wise) like that, although... if Slotster IS... he's sooooooo good.

Sidenote: Hello Bing, and so long... He/she slaughtered Maple Casino & 32Red days apart. While we have no idea the amount he would eventually cash-out with, we do know that he got as high as $27,840 at Maple Casino and to $44,165 at 32Red. I'd love to hear how that story ended.

Just out of curiosity, if you were wondering where the Casinomeister himself placed, he would have been #16th with only 10 posts. Goes to show you that he's been REALLY busy (if you compare the Winner Screenshotsthread from '05 to '04). Mr. Bailey recorded winnings of $17,591.58, with his biggest win coming in March at the tune of $3,375.


- silcnlayc: My apologies, because I couldn't quite a couple of your screenshots. Thus, my tabulations on your winners have been left undetermined. I can't make-out posts #2345 as well as #2352.


***



THIS 'N THAT




- "aquag" posted 4 Royal Flushes for a combined $16,000. They all came in November.


- "satori" is really coming on. She had posted a couple of times in April for just over $2,300, and over the past 2 months, she's been on fire recording $3,000 in November, and another $4,152.50 in the cold month of December.


- Another newcomer, "Warrior Cherokee" with the very bright and lively avatar, wielding his magic during the month of December.


"Chill" literally "chilled" over the past several months. The first half of the year, saw Chill win $12,552.50. Since then... (cue... forest sounds)


- "schnozzy" has been hot over the past couple of months as well, having won $13,283.50 since the beginning of November. :thumbsup:


- If there was ever a drought in the Winner Screenshots thread, it was in the middle of the year, around mid-June through July. And one could argue that this was the case again in late November through the better part of December. If there was a high time, it was around March-April.


- Creator of the Winner Screenshots thread, polli123 :notworthy of Germany, made 1 post for the '05 season. The shot needed (needs) to be resized in order to be seen. Oh well, I'm sure if James Naismith (inventor of basketball) were around today, in all likelihood, he wouldn't be able to hang with today's flock of NBA stars.


- When doing the addition for Slotster's and Kasino King's monthly records, I had to convert the U.K. pound into U.S. dollars. I did so by internet, via www.[B]XE[/B].com (a handy tool).


- Beautiful shots: "quber" - the banana avatar that looks cross, lined-up 5 wilds at Tombraider earlier this year. To me, having played SOOOO much of that game, to me, it's probably the most beautiful shot. Also, I'd like to remind some of that "morose" hit for $13,000 at a PlayTech (ditto KK's), playing Chinese Kitchen. Lovely win!!

- "Great luck comes in 4's???" - Amazing, but "aquag" managed to get 4 Royal Flushes around the same time at the beginning of November.


***


Closing notes: Reviewing all of these winning screenshots, after some time, made me want to ask MG, what's up with not sending a few big hits to John Steed's IP address during what turned-out to be a not so (for me) memorable year. Alas the new year begins, and as I can see, tim5ny has posted the 1st Winner Screenshot. Good luck to everyone in the '06 season!! :)


John Steed

Another AWESOME post Mr.Steed! :notworthy :thumbsup: :notworthy

So I don't like to criticize - but there is one problem - you don't know what currency people played in at MG casinos!
For example, my biggest win was Great Big British POUNDS! (ap. $1,105) :cool:

Non the less - yours was STERLING work! :D

I Second that John Steed, for Casinomeister historian going forward. Absolutely GREAT WORK !!

I would have rather been in 12th or 14th place though instead of 13th for Total Amount Won......Sheeze 13th place....that can't be lucky for the New Year....although time will tell.

Awesome work. :notworthy :notworthy :notworthy

No worries,Robwin. I will translate this into Cantonese(a Chinese dialect) for you. 13 means lively and energetic and the Chinese New Year will be with us in 3 weeks time. Good luck on your slots.

I'm engraving 13 into my chest with a sword... j-j-j-ju-ust a m-m-m-ooo-ment.

(edit pages and pages of screaming, howling... as blood drips to the floor...)

Okay, now MG REALLY has no more excuses to be unkind to me. Geez, my lucky number is #4, and that's just fine and dandy back in my homeland. Unfortunately, as chuchu59 could attest to, is that #4 is unlucky on this side of the Pacific. At least (as I'm told) in Korean, the number #4 "sa" (pronounced ssa), and as I understand "sa" in Chinese is either blood/death (or something like that). When I change continents in the coming year, I'm hoping that my lucky #4 can bring me some good luck again... because it's been a curse on me out here.

Simmo!

Damn i could have come 2nd if i'd not started that Golden Goose Winner Screenshots thread. That'll teach me.:D


Whoa, that's what I was missing! For whatever reason, I was scratching my head thinking, thinking that I was certain that Simmo! had faired MUCH better than this. :what: Sorry about that, but if I'm jumping to every thread, researching, I think that would take me a solid week to do.


One of the main reasons why I wanted to do this thread (and research), was to find-out if my perceptions were accurate (or, IOW "reality"). I was always certain that Simmo! was #1, although I did have it in the back of my mind that Gramma's progressive wins likely would have put her at the top. I was also certain that Casinomeister and Spearmaster would make the Top 4-5 for my "Champions" (total accumulated value) list, which surprisingly they didn't (which again, likely coincides with their being much more busy this year as opposed to '04). What I hadn't really noticed, was some of the other posters like a Caliban, a Chill, or a PhilipFromParis, did much more than I had ever realized (in '05).

spearmaster

BTW, what are you in real life, a researcher?


No, I wish. I'm an English teacher out here in South Korea. Though in my free time, I love breaking-down numbers for sports (most notably: baseball). While I did do a lot of research for this particular thread, what had been logged, I fear, might not be 100% accurate. Why? Some of the numbers aren't as clear as I would have liked (saved screenshots). As we all know, some of those screenshots are either too small, or too unfocused and blurred. I had to do lots of conversions as well, for the new MG games as well as the games that were played in U.K. pounds.


What started as a fun idea, would later evolve into a tedious marathon. In the end though, I made a couple of minor errors that I can't edit (repeating things) now, but all-in-all, I'm happy with the final lay-out (and results).

You're absolutely right. I only recorded what was seen, or what was typed in those posts. But, there was bound to be some mistakes. I did do quite a number of conversions for Slotser, a couple for yourself, as well as a few for others. As far as I can recall, your $1,105 win read as 607.20 (off a .54 cent bet), and since it was at 32Red (Playcheck), I assumed that they only used dollars as opposed to pounds. Again, I only converted what I had clearly seen was written in pounds (eg. your win of 76.26 in pounds in Aug./and your most recent Dec. win at 70 pounds).


Sidenote I: My apologies, because I omitted your December win at Cluedo (which does look like fun). Not JUST because it was too low, but at that point, after tediously recording everything for roughly a 9-hour run, I wanted to jump out my apartment window (and not in celebration for the new year :rolleyes: ). I also couldn't make out some of the older posts that have vanished, like ExSparr's and 2brnot2b's earlier posts from the beginning of '05.


Sidenote II: What a beautiful shot, really! :thumbsup: How they all lined-up like that, great stuff. :notworthy I'm sure it happens, but I have yet to see someone pull that off during a free spin feature. On a large enough bet, one could retire.


Sidenote III: My greatest slot win to date, was on Tomb Raider, where I hit 4 scatters to go into a free spin feature, where on the very first spin, I got another 4 scatters. I didn't get a shot of it, but it was for several hundred dollars off a reasonably low bet.

4 means "die". 14 means "kill".

John, you are right about the unluckiness of those numbers. Yet it might interest you to know that my own lucky numbers are 4, 14 and have been ever since I was a child.

So much for superstitions... but I don't go loudly announcing my lucky numbers to my friends ;)

No worries,spear and Johnsteed. As usual,Cantonese is as funny as they come. Simply add 5 in front of 4 and 54 is pronounced as NG SAY which means 'wont die'. Superstition! Yup,but what gives if it give people comfort of mind. Happy New Year ,everybody.

What an absolutely outstanding effort JS, which I'm pleased to see has been recognised by the many "thank you" votes. I believe your "reputation" star must be the fastest rising we have seen to date, and it is well deserved due to the tremendous amount of work you put into these interesting threads and facts.

Kudos!

Hey johnsteed - another great thread :thumbsup:

Yeah, not everything is here from me - busy, yeah sure. But some of my biggest wins were lousy screenshots so they never got posted (accumulated free spin amounts, etc.).

And I'll never forget the five scatters I got on Spring Break ($9 spin = $4500 payout). I was giggling like a school girl and hit the wrong buttons for the screenie. It never came out, but Spear could have checked his affiliate account to confrim :D

While giggling like a school girl... you also forgot that there is something called Playcheck which could have proven your point :) And my affiliate account only showed a big hit, no way of knowing who or what caused the damage :D

Playcheck screenshots suck - thus I said fuck it.
