I got the announcement earlier this week that CM's annual awards would be posted by the end of this week, or early next week. I don't know about the rest of you, but I really look forward to this every year (yes, I have no life). Anyone have any thoughts, anyone you think is a slam dunk winner, in any category?

The burning question for me is can 32Red make it an unprecedented 4th year in a row? There's been a few bumps for them this year, but certainly nothing earth shattering, and any problems have been dealt with and corrected in a timely manner. That being said, there ARE other good casinos out there as well. Inetbet and Trident Lounge seem to just keep rolling along, quietly but with great efficiency.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Best Casino Group go to Trident again.

Best New Casino, my vote would have to be with either ClubWorld or Villento.

The Fall from Grace award is an interesting one....a few casinos have made it to the rogue pit this year, most notably Sunny Group and Vegas VIP Lounge casinos.

Stupidest Name award? 32Vegas hands down (or did they win that last year, lol).

Top Casino Manager....for me it's hands down Pat Harrison at 32Red. Some may work AS hard as he does, but I don't think anyone works harder. I think Emily Hanson of Inetbet won it last year, and no doubt she would be a deserving candidate as well. Micki Oster of Trident Group, although she may not post much, is always around and takes an active role in resolving any issues that may pop up. Tough competition for sure...it's hard for me to really give an objective view, only because I don't play anywhere but 32Red, for the most part. I guess that's why Bryan does the awards every year, lol.

Most annoying forum member? Now that's a tough one, lol. As long as I don't win, that's cool. :thumbsup:

So does anyone else have someone they are rooting for? Or do you care? And Bryan.....any hints? :D

Footnote: If there were an award for Best Post of The Year...no competition. It had to be Greedygirl telling MR. BOAZ SASSON that Stevie Wonder could have done a better job of proofreading....lmaoooo. I still crack up when I think of it. :D

For best new casino I would consider Cocoa Casino, 49er Casino, and Big Dollar Casino.

Worst Promo: Belle Rocks 1cent free spins.

Best Promo: Mansion's $1000 free bet.

Best new thing: Microgaming's new bonus system.

Best new slots: Hype

Best way to lose your slot winnings: finishing the wagering requirements @ iNetBet (or practically any other RTG).

Best read: the English Harbor cheating thread.

I've been really looking forward to the awards as well and considered starting a simiar thread. My guesses are below. Note that I've been here for only the 2nd half of the year:

Best Casino -- 32 Red

Worst Casino -- This is a tough call. One of the rogues

Best Casino Group -- I am can name quite a few that it is not, but none that really stand out as positive to me... one of the Microgamings

Worst Casino Group --- Sunny Group?

Best New Casino -- Villento

Fall From Grace -- Mini Vegas / Vegas Affiliates

Best Player Experience -- That referred player who won King Cashalot at King Neptunes?

Worst Player Experience -- That guy who was owed >$100,000 at Club Player

Best Software Provider -- Microgaming

Worst Software Provider -- The software that advertised different practice modes? I think Wager21 or iGlobalMedia should be here, but I am probably alone in that.

Best Named Casino -- Villento?

Worst Named Casino -- Enter Casino?

Best Casino Manager -- No idea?

Worst Casino Manager -- No idea?

Most Annoying Forum Member -- I'll be nice and won't guess.

Stupidest Casino Trick -- Belle Rock's 1 line 1 cent spin promotion.

Stupidest Casino Trick (runner up) -- 32 Vegas awarding a $0.01 bonus to VIPs

Best Warning Robot -- Vortran

Evil Player Award -- I recall an issue with someone taking screenshots of clock times, that was likely fraud. There is probably something more severe than this that I am not thinking of. I know a few, but am not sure if they are on the forums.

On your upper lip - or on your pussy? :rolleyes:

Worst named casino must be EnterCasino.
Also worst rogue for claiming to have been online since 1996 - which is a bare-faced lie! :mad:

Enter Casino is pretty much disqualified since they have been around for a number of years. I try to choose a casino that was launched during the year. This year yields two winners - a tie.

But I agree wholeheartedly, Enter Casino is a stupid name.

In fact, they're all stupid - 888.com (how retarded) Casino-on-net (drips with creativity! Please give me more!). Pacific Poker (what? in the water?)
 

Slotster!

The Jackpot Factory debacle has got to get a mention somewhere... That was both abhorrent and hilarious in equal measure.

Best casino suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurely has to go to 32RED again! Has there been one *serious* issue all year?..

Best BB poster surely is the mighty John Steed! Will anyone ever match the multi-coloured brilliance that is the Steed? Not yet, anyhow!

Best new slot - Cleopatra! :notworthy Simple and brilliant!

Best software provider actually standing up and doing the right thing - Microgaming with the Mega Moolah refunds...

Can't wait! :thumbsup:

Worse to come

I have found worse,

A new casinos called....


Wait for it....

"Casino Lobby"!

The customer support domain is worse, "[email protected]_service.org"

When I first came upon this I thought it was a joke because it came up in Intercasino's SEO warren. I then found it was a REAL CASINO based in Gibraltar. It may be a good casino, but I hope it has more imagination in it's promotions department than shown by it's creators.

This surely has to be the front runner for the 2007 awards.

Maybe that's because in many cases the real owners are not really gambling people, but successful entrepreneurs from modern technology-related industries like the cell phone business.

Absolutely right Slotster. And I'd forgotten that Bryan usually gives an award for stupidest marketing ploy (or something like that). I actually just went back and read through parts of it...unbelievable. And I read Greedy's whole post to Boaz again......still chuckling. :D Gotta be the post of the year!!
