    Best and Worst of Online Gambling - Meister Awards for 2014 - I need your input!

    Yep, once again a year has flown past (man, it went quick) and the Casinomeister Awards are being compiled 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 - usually during the third week of January (this year the last week of Jan.). It's a super-duper 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:

    http://www.casinomeister.com/meister_awards/bestworst2013.php
    http://www.casinomeister.com/meister_awards/bestworst2012.php
    http://www.casinomeister.com/meister_awards/bestworst2011.php

    I could use input on best/worst categories. Stupid casino tricks - worst named, and/or anything else you can think of.

    With your input - I will be putting together a short list for the Best Casino. The short list will be voted on (in a secret vote) by the Casinomeister Advisory Group. The awards will be announced during the last week of January - the winner (Best Casino) will be announced at the iGaming Awards in London on Sunday February 1st.

    Hey everyone, chip in with your best / worst suggestions!

    Personally I nominate Karolina at CWC for Best Casino Manager. I don't think this year has seen a harder working, more conscientious casino manager than Karolina. And I reckon PatH at 32Red, Ben at Guts and Enzo at 3Dice would be willing to share the accolades for a year. ;)

    Easy.

    Best Casino: 1. Guts, close 2nd Betat

    Best Rep: 1. Ben (Guts), close second 2. Karl (Betat and Slotty) - Special mentions: Erik (Thrills and Superlenny), Eric (Casino's Luck and Next), Paul (BGO), Redbet rep (sorry can't remember name) in no particular order.

    Best Casino Manager: Ben (Guts)

    Worst Casino: 1. Monaco Aces

    No criticism here (since it's based on your experience), but I think that nominating accredited casinos might be seen as quite strange. :eek2: Most of the nominated casinos are usually rogue outfits and casinos you don't see near the accredited list since they aren't being close to meet those standards Bryan has set up for accreditation.

    Best Casino - Split between 32 red and Roxy Palace for me. As I'm still fundamentally a Viper software user I have to vote with my feet. Guts and BetAt are obviously the standout multiplatform casinos.

    Biggest Disappointment - Ladbrokes and William Hill (two absolute giants in the UK betting world) not being accredited and seemingly not being bothered enough to change that.

    Best Casino manager - Mark. His efficiency and effectiveness in responding to issues is always noteworthy, while also immersing himself in the culture of the forum. Good egg.

    Sitting on the hands award - This just HAS to be Playtech. All year there has been essentially a neon sign on the front page of the biggest casino forum connecting 40 Playtech casinos to a rogue announcement, and they have done nothing at all??! It is terrible publicity for them and I believe that the issue is a lingering poison to their brand, but still no action? Two of the casinos involved (Supercasino and jackpot247) are among the highest profile in the UK as they are on television every night, yet their terms remain predatory as ever.

    Most annoying forum member - I know that Johnny is already clearing space in his trophy cabinet for this one, but my vote goes to Lucky Dahlia. Simply because the way she violated the culture of the forum for brute leverage during her grievance set a precedent that others followed. She set the tone for probably one of the nastiest periods of member abuse of the forum I've personally seen on here.

    1. Best and Worst Casino in 2014.
    2. Best new Casino in 2014.
    3. Best Casino Rep on this Forum in 2014.
    4. Best and Worst slot released in 2014.
    5. Best and Worst slot software of 2014.
    6. Most valuable member on the forum in 2014.
    7. Worst member on the forum in 2014.
    8. Worst Spamming casino in 2014 (I have a unbeatable champion for this category). :S
    9. The Downfall Trophy 2014 for a reputable casino who could not keep up the high standards from previous year(s).

    Will prolly think of some more and will post it here if still relevant.

    Hope it helps you a bit Bryan. :)

    Totally agree.
    It boggles my mind that a company which produces some of the best casino software on the net seems not to give a flying toss about the welfare of any of their players :eek2:

    Playtech can also be nominated for a new category: BIGGEST SCAM COVER-UP OF THE YEAR
    WTF did happen to the missing 5 million???
    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60027

    I think deciding on the best categories will be much harder than the worst - there are so many top-notch operators out there now that it seems almost unfair that we have to declare any single one of them as the "best".

    Just a bit of input from an American (read somewhere the US is the largest gambling community in the world.) :cool:

    The Best/Worst awards should be split into categories for US Facing since it is impossible for US to play at most of the casinos being nominated in this thread. Although our choices are severely limited, we should nonetheless have a fair chance to provide input. ;)

    Best Casino award IS split since a couple of years back. Thats why 3Dice/Club USA as an example have won Best US facing award earlier.

    EDIT: US friendly it's called...

    Best casino global; GUTS. Although I can't play it I see how they do business and Ben is and always has been top notch.

    Best US facing; 3Dice IMO can't be beat for CS, hassle free, fast payouts and unique software and transparency.

    Best reps; The Bet-At team was outstanding this year and have shown real class by dealing with some difficult situations and continuing a strong presence here. Dieter from Refilliates deserves honorable mention, he is also a class act IMO.

    Most annoying member; I would have to go with Mr. Proven System. Although he was rather innocuous his persistence was admirable.

    There should be some mention of New Jersey in there somewhere for making it through their first year with full casino gaming with no major hitches.

    Best Casino Guts, by a country mile,

    I cant decide between the best casino manager so I am going to leave that but if I can have two it would be casinoben and Path,

    Best rep Mark 32red

    biggest fall from grace has to be Ladbrokes (its just awful) and is starting to resemble a clip joint.
