Just curious how many Casinomeister members play at casinos that are not on Casinomeister accredited list?

I usually play at an online casino that is only accredited through Casinomeister, but there are a few that are not listed like Gunsbet casino I like to try. I like the look of this site but nervous to venture away from the accredited list. I see it has excellent reviews from many other sites so thinking Ill give them a try.

Have you ventured off to play other casinos that have great reviews elsewhere and have you had great success with them?

Aside from videoslots and L&L brands I play only at NON accredited casinos as all good ones are not accredited, infact the accredited list has awful casinos that should not be approved.

Skybet
Willhill

Yes, I play at many that are not accredited. The accredited list seems mainly aimed at UK gamblers - many of these casinos are not available to Canadians.
I do play at accredited also

Yes - I am aware of the risks.

Only about 1/2 are available to the UK (propped up by L and L's portfolio) ;)

To answer the Q - Yes, Willy Hill, Sky, Mr Q, Grosvenor, Redbet, Mr Green.

Probably like most folk i use it as a reference point, not a Bible (otherwise I'd think that Trada/Next/Guts/Rizk are good places to play when, IMO they're not)

Personally only use a couple of accredited casinos.

Bulk of play is at the major sports sites. WH Coral and PP.

Like others have said I would trust these 3 sites and never had a problem at any of them. Least I know I get paid quick and never have to jump through hoops with all the constant KYC and scanning cards etc.

You should have added a poll to your post - would have been interesting to see the actual numbers!

By anyway, yes I do play at some casinos who aren't accredited (and some that are).

It's possibly fair to say that some of the popular UK sites that are not accredited are not accredited because of their actions toward affiliates rather than players.

I'm quite happy to try most sites so long as they have a UK licence; whether they keep my custom is a different thing entirely.

I stick mainly with L&L and VideoSlots as I know I can trust them.

I'm also with a bunch of the non-accredited UK sites in many cases because they're all doing some kind of free prize offer every day currently.

(Sky do the Prize Machine (and Prize Burst on Bingo, though that is due to end), Betfair do their pinball game, Paddy Power have the Winners Wheel. Then Gala Bingo usually has something similar, as does Gala Spins. William Hill's Bonus Drop is surprisingly generous as well.)

White Hat Casinos should absolutely NOT be accredited. Full marks for Casinomeister on them.

Yes I have and still play at non accredited casinos but I do try and check them out first and they have been good with payouts and verification.

The two that I played at for a while is Kingbilly and Bitstarz and now they're accredited so I chose well :)

One thing that is apparent in this thread is that most of you don't understand the mechanics of accreditation. First off, I don't choose who is a candidate for being accredited here. It is up to the casinos to come to me - I don't go to them. In fact, I can't recall asking any casino to join the Accredited list of casinos. So it's on a volunteer basis.

Many casino operators don't think that they can meet the standards, so they let these aspirations go. And some are not qualified to be Accredited by us.

And the reason why you don't see big name casinos on the accred list like William Hill, Paddy Power, Betfred, is because they don't give a flying rat's ass about this community - or you, basically. One of the requirements to be accredited is to have a presence here in this forum. As time goes by and the casino industry becomes more industrialized and the mom and pops drop off the edge, the accredited list will get smaller and smaller.

It is what it is - but saying that, there are many casinos in the Grey Zone that are decent casinos to play at. Casino Rewards for one, Race Casino (never yet BBF'd), William Hill is there, etc. etc. There are loads there that have not been vetted by a BBF process (read: you - the membership). Most of these operators never asked to be vetted by us. So taking all this in, we will be restructuring this list once the 2020 awards are finished. Many of these casinos are recommendable - but they just don't have the prestige of being accredited here at Casinomeister.
