    Hi all,

    1Casino has set up an exclusive slots tourney, but no one is joining. Well, actually only two members have joined. I was hoping I could get some feedback here as to what is wrong with it. It seems pretty okay to me :D

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    I'd like your input so that in the future we can put together tournaments that you'll enjoy.

    Eventually registered. Takes ages to download games. This casinomeister promotion is not a tournament - its a casino wagering race. Why call it a tournament?

    I had problems registering for the casino quite some time ago. I'd completed everything and then it failed. Wanting to make sure I didn't end up with duplicate account, I emailed support. I didn't get a response.

    I pm'd the rep here, who got back to me and said someone from the casino would be in touch. When I hadn't heard from them, I contacted the rep again. I did receive a phone call from the casino, but it was at an inconvenient time. I asked that they call back later that same day, they said they couldn't. I asked that they call me the next day instead.

    I haven't heard back from them. I already play at a number of casinos, there is only so much work I want to put into joining a new casino. If they are not more anxious than this for my business, I'm not that anxious to patronize them.

    What if I had a withdrawal issue? I had no intention of complaining about this, but you asked.

    Download takes ages. How does entering the tournament work, do we have to register or simply play?

    1) I didn't even know about it - where was it advertised?

    2) I am not interested in any "tourneys" which are just based on who wagers the most - what that basically means is whoever loses the most gets a small part of their losses back :(

    3) What they should do is use the built-in Crypto tourney feature where everyone buys-in (once only!) for the same amount and then has 30 minutes (or whatever) to makes as much as possible with "fun money".

    4) I wouldn't sign-up there anyway as their welcome bonus has ridiculous wagering of Bonus x 50 :eek:
    As their slots are thought to have an RTP of about 92%, that is criminal compared to most MG casinos where the WR is only Bonus x 30 and the slots pay about 96%.

    You asked for feedback - you got it! :p

    Agree with KasinoKing - one of the best part of Cryptos s-ware is the tournys with a buy-in and prizes for top 3 or whatever!

    I think Casino \ wagering races are an insult to a lot of high wagering players.

    VIPs who will almost certainly win the wagering race and have taken perhaps large losses wont be too happy about getting a small prize for losing their bankroll, probaly with a congratulory email - Well done for coming 1st in the race and losing all your cash!

    If a casino has crypto software, they should get someone who actually knows how to make the best use of it!

    Since I have often played in these wagering races, one of the biggest things likely to put me right off is a tiny prize compared with the risk involved. Why spend £10,000 coming first for a £100, £500, or whatever prize that is BONUS money in any case. I have NOT examined this particular tournament, but in general terms this is how I judge such wagering races.

    If there is no running scoreboard I will not take part either. This simply makes the risk/reward not only large, but UNKNOWN. How would I know that my losing of £10,000 was futile because a pair of whales had taken down the top prizes at a cost of £50,000.
    Scoreboards allow for strategy and planning, and even the standard Crypto tournaments have this, because unlike MGS, you do NOT have to blow your time allowance in one go, you can take it in bursts, and rest when you have a favourable position, but leave some time so that you can adjust your place close to the end. Crypto is also ONE buy in, none of this "999 continues/rebuys" as seen with MGS.

    !Thanks for the feedback!

    I have been in a meeting with cryptlogic.

    And I can't make a buy-in tournament just for casinomeister players because cryptologic does not have a password system and every casino player on 1casino.com could play it and it wouldn't be a casinomeister celebration tournament or wager-race :)

    That is why we have made it a wager-race. I am sorry for calling it a wager-race that is my fault. And to make it fair we are going to change the welcome bonus to 30x. And the special casinomeister bonus will have 110% match to 24x and the reload bonus the same for 60%.match reload.

    And to make it awesome fair we are going to display the wagering on the leaderboard. So you know how much you have to wager to get on top! And to make it Super awesome fair we are going to have a leaderboard of 20 spots!

    This will suck for me ofcourse because I have to update more stuff daily but hey someone has to do it.

    All this will be in action on monday!

    I have said it alot but we are a fairly new casino but we are all about making the players happy! We know that we wan't to be in this business a long time and not a short time!

    Best regards

    Morgan,

    Hope you get better soon - by the use of your word *awesome* I suspect you are from S Africa - anyway, will you be updating all the time?

    Crypto tournies, are often decided the last few mins \ secs, when top 5 or so are in contention to win.. thats why an upto the sec leaderboard is required.

    Regards,

    Dazzla

    I suspect you might have got the "fob off" from Crypto, because a few years ago they were advertising a facility for players, but mainly affiliates, to create their own "invite only" tournaments. Surely they must have had to address the problem then of ensuring only those with an invite were able to register.

    Wager races too are often decided in the closing stages, although probably not the last few seconds, but certainly the last day or so. If someone piled on a huge burst in the last day, there could be a "row" when the results are declared from players who are WELL in front by the start of the last day, and who see "no way" of them being beaten so close to the finish.

    Some MGS casinos have such scoreboards, and they try to get them updated at least hourly, and even half-hourly. This, of course, is NOT done manually, but by using software that runs every hour to recalculate the scores, and then post the updated table on the website.

    IF someone takes the welcome bonus to compete in the tournament, they are not likely to care whether the WR is 50x or 30x, since they will be looking to get the biggest score they can with their deposit, hoping they can get a prize greater than the sum of all their lost deposits.

    As well as all this, the software issues need looking at, since if the software doesn't deliver, the player isn't going to play in the tournament no matter how "awesome" it is.

    Well what I can say is that I have tried my best to please everyone but I can't do much more than that. But I hope the bonus is a nice one to take if you play the tournament or not.
