Yep, it's that time of the year again...the Casinomeister Awards are being compiled, formulated, and kicked around. This is your chance to suggest new and interesting categories, awards, recipients, or any other input for that matter.

For the newbies, The Casinomeister Awards are dished out right after the Xmas break. It's a super special annual event that's been done since 2001.

For quite a number of people, these are the only awards that matter...

The most recent years:

Just to add - here is last year's video presentation of the awards where I'm joined by Protecto and Vortran007:

Gives you an idea what they are all about.

Cant wait to see the results, do we get to vote?
You can always give me input - I don't set up an official vote since these things tend to get abused.

"Vote for us at Casinomeister and receive an extra $10 bonus" if you see what I mean :p

I was going to ask when this was happening. When I first arrived at CasinoMesiter I spent at least an hour (maybe 2) reading up on the past awards.

Suggestions: Best and Worst promotions. Best and worst new slots games (actual games not software provider)

EDIT: The 90s called, they want their suit back :D

EDIT2: See screenshot.

Are these awards broadcast live on this site?
If so I hope it doesn't clash with the Queens speech! :thumbsup:

Boy, this thread died, didn't it?:confused:

Well, at the risk of being self-serving, I'd think the Heroes Casino saga would be deserving of some type of award, good or bad. Heroes Casino- BOOOOO! Galewind Software- YEEEEEAAH!!:D

Yep Heroes was a big one and the issue with you wasnt it, def in the running for a award.

Let's not forget the software provider who cam good with the money though, if anything they should get the mention for paying you out such a large amount when they didnt need to.


The ones that stick out to mind are,


(1)- Hereos,

(2)- Pittbull poker and that massive debacle

(3)- Did the CAP incident with Warren and Lou happen this year??, time passes quickly.

(4)- the playtech casino not paying out the progressive jackpot to the client who then went to the media.

Umm, thats it off the top of my head.


Some positives,

3dice again for customer service, the only one remotly close is 32red and we all know they will get best caisno again, they always stay high on the list for me also.


I dont want to post just the negative thing so will have a few beers this arvo and think of some good things that happened over the year.


P.S- is there something for meister forum members, the most productive throughout the year, the one who everyone likes, best postings or something along these lines?

Eurolinx/BetonBet/Linx Casino going bust owing millions of dollars to players should be a worthy nominee.

Always looking for more input - these next few weeks I'll be putting everything together. Thanks all for the suggestions :thumbsup: ...am a bit surprised there hasn't been more.

They fit in perfectly, but there'd be an outcry when I walked away with all three! :cool: :oops:

Really look forward to these awards - they're a great benchmark for what's happened over the last twelve months and what to expect for the future; it's difficult reading all the threads and keeping up to speed.

I'd like to see the best/most interesting casino innovation of the year. Yeah, way to word a category Slotster! :rolleyes: What I mean is, the best/most innovative feature/contribution from an online casino outside of new slots/games etc...

I'll go away, have five minutes, and come back again when I've thought through what I meant to post, instead of just typing what falls out of my fingers. Idiot.

"Award For Innovation" is probably all you need :) Just have to add a strap that explains it doesn't include slots lol.

I'd like to see an award for a casino that recognises players are individual and have individual needs. Ones that flush, reduce reverse times on request, award comps to players on an individual basis and communicate on a one-to-one level uncoerced. Trouble is I can only think of two that really do that effectively and they are already well known. I wonder why ;)

Really looking forward to these :thumbsup:

A couple I have thought of:

Best Forum Thread of 2009

Best Casino Rep of 2009

Also while it is great 32Red are so consistantly good it would be nice to recognise a few more casinos in some way. Maybe there could be a best Playtech, best Microgaming etc etc. There are a lot of other casinos that give very good service also.

Incase anyone doesn't think these awards are important here is a snippet from last year:

Should Have Known Better Award

To the operator of Eurolinx who brought me into the Bigrounder72 mess. You should have known better than to have lied to both me and to the player community. You don't bullshit the Meister and think I won't find out.

Don't mess with the Meister!!!

I personally think any forum has to be wary of awarding players annually for their contributions.

It has been known on other forums to create an element of annomosity from the members who thought they deserved a certain award more than someone else. Also material posted is subjective, and it may be that the most popular members receive awards to try and keep the majority happy.

Gamblers are by nature competitive people, so keeping the community spirit and making every member feel valuable is important. Rather than having a competition to see whose the best at this or that, which could alienate some members, even making them feel that there contributions are somehow less worthy.

In my opinion the Casinomeister awards should be kept for the industry itself, and perhaps have some recognition awards done seperatly for the forum as a bit of fun.
