    Hi Bryan,

    Thanks for a fascinating forum and also your refeshing and zany radio broadcasts. It's good to know you are out there protecting us little folk :)

    One tiny point for your information:

    I'm not entirely sure what's meant by a robot but in your list of don'ts you say, "Don't play at sites that disallow robots" yet Blackjack Player's T&C state that "Any Internet wagering through other means, including the use of a "robot" player, is strictly forbidden."

    Have a great week-end and thanks again for a great service.

    Ray

    Hi xraymitch,

    Thanks for the kudos, and for the heads up. My "don't" in this case was in response to the Hamptons casino fiasco where the previous operator tricked a player into confessing over the phone (which was taped) that he used a robot player - thus breaching the casinos T&Cs. $1.3 million was at stake and what proceeded was total bullshit on the casino's part.

    Most of these anti-robot player rules are carry overs from the old days of online gaming where many operators felt that players were cheating using a robot. This is mainly because operators did not understand what robots did. In all actuality, robot play just makes the player play faster using "perfect" playing strategy, but in the long run - it just makes the player lose money faster. Lest we forget the house always wins. :D

    One of the Don'ts used to be "Don't Play at sites located in Costa Rica" but this has obviously changed. What made you change your mind? Also, are the Net Entertainment sites coming back to the reputable list? Being in Costa Rica was the reason you gave once for not advertising them anymore.

    How did some of the newer member casinos such as Bodog and Phoenician persuade you because I was looking for an announcement about the change but all I could find were old posts about why you wouldn't accept Costa Rica:

    Good questions Sirius - and these are questions that I feel everyone needs to know the answers to. Actually I made the announcement on the main site in August and on the webcast 25 August.

    This last summer I re-examined my policy (that I have always been adamant about) concerning NOT endorsing casinos that have business licenses from Costa Rica. And I came to conclude that there are few well established casinos that have their servers in CR, and it wasn't really fair to exclude them from my endorsement. They met all of the other criteria - free from problems, virtually no negative player issues, I had met the operators, etc., - for being listed here. And what I try to do here is in the interest of both the operator and player.

    It would seem that having a license is one of the most important factors a player would consider when they sign up at an online casino. But to believe this would be like believing in the tooth fairy. The majority of players don't care. What they care about is having their winnings paid promptly. Most players don't bother to check on licensing - what they will do (at least the more experienced ones) they'll search Google or forums for mentionings of whatever casino they are looking into.

    But I honestly feel that proper licensing is crucial - the more stringent licensing jurisdictions cause operators to jump through certain hoops to get them (the license). It's like obtaining a driver's license; the more difficult the test - the better the driver. The better the driver - the less accidents they'll have (hopefully). Applied to online casino operators, it works about the same. Jurisdictions with stringent rules or qualifications attract the better operations which of course are normally less problematic.

    Now there are exceptions to the rules; sometimes there are excellent operations that have little regulation (Bodog, iNetBet, Phonecian/Nostalgia groupCherry/Casnio Domain [we're talking] are some examples.). And these companies have a proven track record that they are on the up and up.

    So I decided that I would endorse these companies on the grounds that they have been in operaton for one full year without any unresolved player issues. I think this is fair.
