    Best and Worst of Online Gambling - Meister Awards for 2017 - I need your input!

    Yep, once again a year has whizzed by and the Casinomeister Awards are being extrapolated, ranked, and written. Just like last year, and the year before, and the year before that, and that one, etc., etc., blah blah blah - this is your chance to suggest new and interesting categories, awards, recipients, or any other input for that matter. :thumbsup:

    For the newbies, The Casinomeister Awards are dished out right after the Xmas break - usually during the third week of January. It's an "event of the year" which has been held since 2001.

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

    The most recent years:

    https://www.casinomeister.com/casino-awards/year-2016/
    https://www.casinomeister.com/casino-awards/year-2015/

    Hell, here is 2009's :D
    https://www.casinomeister.com/static/meister_awards/bestworst2009.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 2017.
    The short list will be voted on (in a secret vote) by the Casinomeister Advisory Group.

    So, who/what will it be?

    Deposit bonus conversion limits

    My bugbear with casinos is they are increasingly now offering what appears to be an attractive deposit bonus, only to state in the small print that there is a max "conversion" amount capped at something ridiculously low like 4x the bonus.

    I can understand there being a cap on winnings for no-deposit bonuses or free spins, but when you are depositing with your own money and win big, it is crushing to find you can only withdraw a small portion of your winnings at the end of the wagering.

    Well, the worst casinos are obviously going to be the affpower associated sites. 6black and other filth.
    Worst group 10bet.
    Worst poster dunover.

    I agree Casinorewards and their 'marketing' that Bebo mentioned is by far the worst stupidest marketing trick of 2017 - in fact since I've been here in years.

    Best and Worst for 2017

    For me, the best casinos are the ones that pay me and the worst are those that block me.

    In 2017 my best Spots are: Cafe Casino, SlotoCash, POSH, CherryJackpot

    The worst spots are: MainStreet Group and Freespin

    Overall, things are looking great for 2018 and I can't wait for this year's awards and join in on the fun!!!!

    I have to say that the worst group or casino?CWG Hand's Down!

    To see this bunch completely destroy a very good group of player bound casino's, is just wrong and for that they deserve the Big High One!

    I must say that this year has been one of the worst I have ever had.I have not had 1 win on line this entire year?True I have not been playing as steady as before.but I saw the writing on the wall and stopped.Well I played and lost over $5,000 USD. And with no wins even small ones that much of a loss is enough! Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff

    Worst Casino Group of the year is the Affpower Group and the devastating fall from grace for the Club World Casinos.

    Best threads is hard but three that stick out for me are s follows:
    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    I chose this one due to the input from both players and Videoslots.
    The next one is because of Harry and the great way of paying it forward,
    https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/online-casinos/80951-remarkable-day-videoslots.html

    The last thread would be the spam and fake ads one because it brought to light a huge issue with casinos and rouge affiliates:
    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Best casino of the year is hands down Videoslots and Dan ought to get the best rep award due to his constant presence here on the forum and willingness and effort he puts in for solving problems. When Guts had reps running for the hills Dan stayed put for Videoslots and dealt with the good and bad press so he deserves a lot for being awesome.

    My favourite posters are Dunover and Goatwack always guaranteed a laugh with both of them and Dunover is a shining beacon of what a good affiliate should be.

    Thats all I can think about off the top of my head right now

    Best thread imo should go to the
    'ask me anything' thread.
    https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/slots-discussion/77569-ask-me-anything-about-slots.html
    Members have been asking for years about how slots really work and to have a person in rhe know step up and finally someoone in the field has stepped up and (tirelessly) answered Qs througout the year.
    Whether you accept trance monkeys take on it or not is irrelevant..he's provided what people have been asking for and has spent as much time or more than any very active member or rep ALL YEAR.
    Frankly I don't know how it can't be thread of the year. From Februaty until today it's always active and full of participation. Honestly he's probably alnost due member of the year too though there's several members consistently active and helpful.

    I'll hold off on best casino as I'd like to better review the year but a couple obvious contenders would be VS and Rizk.
    While the GUTS reps have fallen far the group as a whole should still be up for best group as they consistently pay and Rizk is a contender for best casino and I see very little issues beyond that along with the 32 red group.

    Best reps I'll leave to the consensus as I've had little issues and interaction with many this year. Same with manager award. Mark Dan and the Captain do pop to mind though.

    It's been a year of ups and downs with some consistencies and many inconsistencies. I hope 2018 is a little brighter

    A note to those casting votes and their two cents. Please go back in the year and past those who've pulled up their socks in recent memory for those who have been hard working and diligent THROUGHOUT THE year and not as awards roll around.

    good luck all.

    best casino is slotsmillion even though they had a couple of issues. Some lag, large fees on cashouts for Canadians, no reward system.

    I think the things they added over takes that. They added a lock feature when cashing out so you cant reverse, they have a couple parachute bonuses a week, a huge library of games, helpful support, a growing and timely presence on this forum (they have 3 active reps including the manager who respond in a fairly timely manner) . They even sent me a gift basket in the mail. The manager has always answered me via email if the conversation needed to be escalated.

    I have a feeling the negative I mention will be fixed this coming year.

    Worst casino. I havent played in very bad ones so my opinion on this shouldnt be taken to the extreme but I would have to say anything fortune lounge. Terrible and frustrating times with front end support. Sudden reversals of my cashout requesting more ID. I will say the rep here is pretty nice but her hands are usually tied when it comes to things.

    Favorite thread. The how much did you win/lose thread. I like to see people win and even more I like to see people being honest about their losses so the lurkers dont just see a winners screenshot thread and feel that everyone wins and they go and deposit and lose everything.

    Good thread, but I think there's one which stands out above all:

    https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/casinomeister-s-charities/77492-jennifers-medical-fund.html

    It shows how some things are far more important than facile video representations of a RNG result.

    Bebo had a shite year, yet has come through this and still posts with a sense of humour and having won a battle that's far more significant than any we have with slots or waiting a few extra days for a cash-out. :thumbsup:

    So for me it was inspiring, and for all of you that responded to Bryan's OP on Jen's behalf, that's possibly one of the best things you did all year!

    Best topic is the one asking about slots.

    No vote from me for best casino because I learned that loyalty means nothing ( I am looking at you Videoslots )

    Best rep Dan from VS for being here almost 24/7

    I have to agree with interlog in regards to best casino as I really don't think their is one this year due to some issues that we have seen, But I guess Videoslots for fast payouts and a active rep. For being here lot's and communication it has to go to Dan again for rep and I don't think it's close again this year. Other than that I don't know how you can hand out awards this year as no casino has been on here that much this year. Dan from Videoslots and maybe Trada a lil bit I have noticed but no other casino reps are on here that much unless a player has a issue. Forum member's awards for sure.;)

    Oh I guess the downfall of clubworld for worst casino or operator or something, What a sad story.:(

    I agree about Dan. He is unbelievable. And he has a family to boot. Too bad we couldn't give him and his family a paid trip, but then everything would fall apart. Goatwick's humor always cracks me up! :D And I would have to say the best thread was my GoFund me, not because its " about me" but because I have never seen so many people come through when I needed it. You were there from my diagnosis, surgery, and treatment.My anger, my tears and my happiness. You never once complained. I had family members who couldn't " deal;" with it. And friends not know what to do. So when you have a group of virtual friends be there for me. I cant even express it in words. We all have been through so much this year. Kelly, Jasmine, myself. Bryans dad, Max's fall. I personally will be glad when this year is over. Hugs to each and everyone of you! :)
