Over the last few days I have been through EVERY casino in the accredited lists' "meister rating" and I have to say, in it was fun. :thumbsup:

I deposited exactly £0.00 so what did I get out of it ?

Less than half the casinos offer any chance of real free play.
Only Genting Casino left me a winner beyond WR. A very nice £48 but I carried on playing and very quickly lost it.
Only one other casino came close at around 35-40% of WR. (Using the word close very loosely)
Most were free spins that gave a couple of pounds and amounted to nothing very quickly.
Irrelevant for non-uk players but many don't support UK.
Quite a few, maybe 10 of the links sent me to another sites advert for a list of casinos possibly making the accredited list dangerous as there was no vouching for that unexpected list.
I got one spam phone call from a nice lady offering to send me an email about a bonus that in the end, never came.
My inbox isn't being flooded with spam at all.
Some of the sites offered what I feel was ridiculous WR bonus offers that if you went full tilt on, would have to turn over more than £50k to see real money. Ok, that's extreme, to say the least.
A few times I had to contact support to release or give a technically failed nudge for bonuses to happen.

The only thing I am kicking myself on now, is when I started I had no idea I would do the full list and could have kept detailed notes and shared them. However I realise CM here would still have to verify all of that, respectfully said, because I could be f.o.s.

On the face of it, I enjoyed going through the list. King Kong on Genting gave me 150 free spins and that went a long way to helping me achieve the WR. A couple of sites gave me extended play but the majority that did give anything, were over in a minute or two.

My only caution would be that the list needs updating which is the real reason I am posting this.

Thanks CM, it was a good experience and having had to join here worried about a £2.5k payout on Gala that was successful, like many; I appreciate your site and thought it only fair do's to give back this input.

Anyhow, Merry Christmas one and all, may your deposits be low and your wins be many. :lolup:

If you had used the UK License list then you should not had been sent somewhere else when clicking the casino and you would had a much shorter list to go through :thumbsup:

Had no idea the UK list existed although I see it now lol. Lemme find where that next list is. Yea, a few of them took me here :
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
but even with [Seen on TV] displayed, I didn't expect it nor was I sure it was trusted. Just saying.

I meant to add, a few links Link Roxy also pointed to Casino Meisters built in

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

That's very worrying - do you have any details of where this happened and where they were re-directing you to?

Seems lot of them is that Casinouk affiliate site. I get redirect from CasinoMate and these other starpartner brands I think it is. :eek:

This is Vegas Partner Lounge. They are redirecting any traffic coming from any UK IP to their portal - which is confusing for the members. I asked them about this last January, and they said that they were going to get back to me on this - which they didn't, and I forgot completely about this.

There was a thread about this here:
https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/threads/star-partner-redirect-to-affiliate-site.65566/?t=65566

The rep told me that affiliates were aware of this since they had informed them via a newsletter. I told them that this is unacceptable from my perspective since it confuses players into thinking that those casinos are Accredited Casinos. Which is underscored by this thread.

I agree it's effed up and something should be done. I knew straight away it wasn't right but to what degree wasn't my call hence mentioning it here. Glad I did now for the various reasons, breaching accreditation and screwing affiliates.

I dare say you have a policy in place for these badminded practices. It's (seemingly) not like they can say they accidentally did it.

I should add that I am getting credit for players - but it is still not acceptable since there are casinos that either are not worthy of accreditation or have not jumped through the hoops yet.

This is pretty much exactly what I said to them in London in February. Living in the UK, I have seen this re-direct quite a lot.

I only have 1% (if that) of the clout of Casinomeister - but I expressed that I was deeply unhappy that people can click on a link on my site and get taken to this affiliate portal containing several dodgy casinos. :mad:
(Looked again just now and they do seemed to have cleaned it up a bit - less dodgy ones and more reputable ones).
They didn't seem inclined to do anything about for me - but maybe they will for you! :thumbsup:
