We have a glossary that has been live for years called the Babel Meister. It's located here:
Babelmeister: Gambling Glossary - Casinomeister

Now this is was originally written for our poker site - when poker was a thing - so there are loads of poker terms. I have added a bunch of terms to this as well over the years - pertaining to online casinos or to the forum, or the site itself. The thing is, it could use more terms.

So if there are terms or accronyms you'd like to see here that you feel will assist our members, please post them in this thread and I will define them and add them to the BabelMeister. Thanks!

Great idea, great for SEO also, every good site should have a glossary of terms for its subject. The industry is full of jargon also.

Some days I truly feel old with the short cuts
Granted, they make sense, but I still do a quick google (ex ISO)

I remember first playing online slots and I was not even aware you could change the bet. Let alone what a scatter was or even the definition of rows to go with reels.

Most people don't want to read jargon anyway I don't think. Its good to have something that can make sense of it all.

It used to be in the forum of yore, I could select certain terms and when you'd mouse over them, the definition would appear. Pretty cool. But yes, this glossary needs updating. Thanks for the suggestions.
