The other thing I really like about 3Dice is the no affiliate program. It stands to reason without having to pay affiliates that 25% to 35% commission.....that money gets kicked back to players, in one form or another. Overall, a really good business model.
Worst Software - It's a tossup for me between Rival and TopGame.

Best New Game This Year - Toss up for me between the Stickshifter slot at 3Dice and Hellboy. Love em both. Stickshifter is completely original and Hellboy is just a really cool game IMO.
That's all I can think of for now....really looking forward to Bryan's choices. It's always a great read. :thumbsup:
The awards are out, so no more guessing! But you have some good point here I would like to comment.

The no affiliates strategy from 3Dice is interesting and very beneficial.
Also I have never received any affiliate spam promoting 3Dice.:thumbsup:
But I guess their unique software gives them that competition advantage
compared to MG casino #143.

I like Rival software, and it seems your problems are with casino managers and not the software provider?
Unfortunately there was no best game award this year. I would also have voted
for Hellboy IF they had replaced the boring 'picking' feature with something more interesting. So Stickshifter would have been my pick.

Well another great read Mr Meister :thumbsup: Have to say I pretty much concur with them all.

Most dissapointing for me is that a high street institution like William Hill just can't seem to get it right and Microgaming, once highly regarded, have clearly let their guard slip. But otherwise, the rogues gallery is a list of familiar names.

Reading that bit on Virtual and the non-payment of a $1.5mill jackpot I still find it amazing that RTG are just happy to let them get away with it. RTG owe Club World and iNetbet BIG TIME! That guy from the software provider who stepped up on Heroes to pay the player sets a great example.

I agree with this completely Simmo! I remember and I am sure Jonathan ( From Club World ) does also, the first time I met him in Amsterdam a few years back. He was taken aback that I would not promote any RTG Casinos back then. However thanks to the likes of Club World and a few other solid RTG's, I am pleased to be able to have them on my site and also play there as well. Well deserving of an award this year.

RTG do owe the likes of Club World a lot, just for helping improve their reputation.

So what's the justification for this?

"When she signed up at Joyland, they had a policy of a max payout of 9k per month. Do the math $4.2 million will take around 39 years to pay out. Thats one hell of a long time - who knows if there will even be an Internet in 39 years, much less Joyland casino? Personally I think 39 years is absurd and indefensible. I don't think any player would consider this acceptable.
"

"*Note: One good thing that did come out of this was that the Accredited Casinos at Casinomeister are now required to pay out progressives in full (excluding Wager Works casinos). No funkified whacky crap in Casinomeisterland. "

(emphasis mine.)

The Wagerworks MegaJackpot most definitely qualifies as funkified whacky crap.

I explained this some time ago. This has to do with IGT/Wagerworks and their limitations on paying progressive jackpots in lump sums. It has nothing to do with the casino operations.

It would be nice to see them change this though.

Actually they DO have an affy program - but it was only offered to a handful of affiliates (including myself, and Simmo I believe).
They only pay 15% - the lowest of any program I know - but I'm still happy to list them on my sites even though I've only had 2 players sign-up in 3 years...!
From the players perspective, they are a class act. :thumbsup:

Yes this is true on 3Dice Casino.
Thank You Karen & Enzo:thumbsup:
Glad to be part of it.
Hope you got that thing on that gifting thing I asked.

I must admit, i too was a little surprised to see that Titan has not won anything this year. I agree that AllStar is worthy of best new casino, but Titan is also an extremely close runner, in my opinion anyway.

Thanks for the mentions of my experience with Heroes Casino in the Worst Casino Manager and Stupidest Casino Trick of 2009 categories. Triple thanks for acknowledging Galewind Software's leadership in handling the case.:thumbsup:

Agree, but Titan is not even accredited yet..
Ofcourse this is not up to me, but I think they meet all the standards.

I haven't met the people behind Titan yet, perhaps next week :D

Being accredited helps, but it's not necessary. If 3Dice could win awards before being listed here - so can anyone else.

I loved the software picks and the customer service points!

I did not particularly agree with the JHV section - as I think he is an excellent writer - and chose to see beyond the "witty diatribe" into the truth behind the writing. I like him, and wish this would have been given, instead to the people who THREATEN the casinos with CM posting - when they, themselves are thieves who are guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not just someone who is flamboyantly obnoxious in posting - but someone who does REAL DAMAGE.

Totally dug the rogue casino section selection *WORST CASINOS of decade - etc.* - great truth behind them - TOO BAD you can't put like the TOP TEN WORST Rogues - etc.

But after being banned 3-4 times (for the same thing), you'd have to admit he was pretty annoying. :p

Hi Bryan (All),

Just gone through the awards. Another sartorial effort :thumbsup:

I did get a good giggle out of the evil player award. Not because of the subject matter but the highlighted blue. That's definitely a well versed analogy.

"And then we have players - players who can't get enough "free money", or who shamelessly call themselves bonus "whores" like it's some adolescent joke. Some of these people lose their moral compass and really do some stupid shit."



Cheers

:)

Dave
