nice job ! I remember reading you way back when checking you weekly for new info. LOL it only took me about 10 years to actually sign up. I still don't know why I waited so long.

Cool article, nice to see some backstory to how it all started. You've built up a great rapprt with casino insiders and have a keen sense of protecting players' rights, yet I'm still unsure as to how much you like the actual games themselves! I'm guessing 'Not that much' :cool:

Good to see Vortran007 get a shout-out too :D

And you may have jested about CM action figures, but I think it's a great idea. I mean who wouldn't want a finger-wagging Dunover sampling "Bullshit" over and over? :cool:

I wonder if they profiled all the people that were around when you first started Bryan, what they are up to now. Obviously we know Ted is no longer with us and Lou for that matter, but it would be interesting to see if others managed to thrive in this industry or whether they drifted into something else all together.

That's a great idea for an in-house project. :D

Hrrrmphhh....'"Germany's beer is better than Britain's" :mad::mad:

I too have lived in both countries and the German 'lagerbier' is mostly generic and uniform - good though I'll admit.

We need to get you on the regional 'real ales' and 'steam lagers' plus raw ciders next time in London in the ABV 6-9% range. If you can remember much afterwards you may give them a positive mention...:D :thumbsup:

If I am not mistaken, Max and Bryan did a pretty good tour of some of the most historical pubs London has to offer in February. So I dare say he has a pretty good idea of the ales. However, anyone crazy enough to sink a few of those raw ciders will probably regret ever doing it, if they have any recollection of the experience at all...

Anybody who knows anything about traditional UK beers, lagers and ciders knows you go anywhere but London to taste the variety and quality stuff. It's just tourist-fare aluminium cask crap mostly. You cannot get proper UK Fish and Chips or those drinks mentioned in London at all. No wonder the foreigners think we eat shite and Fish and Chips is so bad when they get them served by migrant-run takeaways who rip them off with frozen fish-in-batter and factory chips instead of cutting their own chips, using fresh fish and their own homemade batter and changing the oil frequently. :(

There's a vast difference between experiencing London and experiencing the UK.

Umm - I've been elsewhere besides London. :D

And it's hard to beat a home town Hefe Weissen. I pay about 65 cents for a half liter. How much do you pay? :drink:

Yeah, that's that lager-bier which is partly wheat judging by the name, as well as hops? Malty sort of taste like some of the malt-steam lagers we have here.

Funnily enough they are my favourite beers. :thumbsup:

If so that is cheap, we can get a decent brand lager in the supermarkets here for about the same price but ours are taxed at alcohol by volume (ABV) so a decent grain+hops beer like that would likely be strong and cost a bit more than say 55-60 pence for 500ml.

But yes, a supply of good biers is vital to a man's existence. :cool:

I really enjoyed reading how Casinomeister have started.

I am very happy that I have signed up to this site as I would be in a lot of trouble for being clueless about a lot of the Casinos.

I know and understand so much more compared to two years ago before I became a member.

Thanks Bryan for this awesome site, love being here :)

The best fish and chips are in the Highlands hands down. All home made and always the crispiest batter with perfect cod or haddock normally caught the same day. :thumbsup: As for beers I think at the very least it has to be continental however if I'm broke I just have Tennents :D.

Oh and great interview Bryan very interesting read!
