Best Casino(s) I have to say Video Slots (can always play relaxed knowing when your luck is in their ain't a huge pile of BS waiting for you when you hit cash out)

If we can mention none accredited places then as long as you don't win too much the Caddell Group, regular and fair low roller / small budget offers with 'realistic' WR / early no 'dip' cash outs etc.

Is there a "Fall from Grace" this year? - If so here goes (will also use this as worse casino(s) info)

Sure many will agree here...

Casino Luck, Next Casino, Wild Slots. GREAT casinos before they've sold out to that awful AG group, up there with the best, well managed, well run, player friendly.

After the move they are fucking awful, feel so sorry for Eric if his hands were tied on this one which I strongly suspect they were, a serious case of "if only we could turn back time...."

Best poster / helpful member: Harry_BKK - always goes extra mile to provide info for newbies / novices etc, get proper info too,

Annoying poster (but probably an ok guy lol) - no names but that quit guy who made so many threads over SE this year trying to get his dosh back to gamble some more :p

Foil Hat theory of the year award - IS Raging Rhino HTML5 ever going to be exposed, are BTG really pukka :p

Hello Meister,

I'd like to nominate the following for thread of the year:

www.casinomeister.com/forums/online-casinos/80951-remarkable-day-videoslots.html

Harry should also receive Vortran's Humanitarian of the Year award :)

I agree with this, a fine example of what people power can do!

Also I'd like to nominate Dan Videoslots as Rep of the year, he has helped me out with small issues a couple of times and also when he has solved others issues on the Videoslots thread, I can read it and that helps too.

The Next/Casinoluck casino move, as mentioned, is a contender.

Normally you don't notice the difference immediately but the gradual slide.

With this one, AG obliterated a brand name in about an hour, changing a great casino set up to a 2 bit set up. A really weird chat set up as well - you go on asking 'what game are the free spins on', to some random customer service agent trying to sell you a new bin.

The best casino? Trada. They are small ( bigger doesnt mean better) but they are always striving to make things good for the player. Their community involvement is unsurpassed, and they are just a class act!

The most innovative? Videoslots

The worse? I don't know, I have only played at a couple

The worse thread,annoying? Some will disagree but the Trump thread

The most helpful member? I would have to say Jasmine. She has to be the most unbiased, nicest person you could ever meet. She is always helping new members, people that want to do PAB's, Everything and anything. She sends links to the right people, reps, etc. She is never rude, judgmental nor condescending. When she won that large amount of money, she also shared by paying for CM battle at VS.

The best rep? Dan!

Now if we could get some active VIP hosts in here, maybe we can add them to the fold next year. :)

Okay keep it plain and simple.

Best casino Videoslots

Rep of the year. Many Reps do their job well but Rep of the year has to be Dan as well he is always here. In my opinion Dan is Videoslots and he must be the most sought after Rep their is. Always available 24/7 and here to help along with all the great promotions he does.:thumbsup:

Most annoying threads of the year. All the constant whinging these slots are rigged and casinos are fixed as i lose threads. Seriously people if you think slots are rigged and the casinos say oh its them logged in lets fix it to lose mode then give up.

Best member. Sorry do not think its fair putting one as the majority are great people.

Could go on forever but i need coffee.

Have a good day all and have a great Christmas and New Year when it comes:thumbsup:

PS. Dan please at least take an hour of on Christmas Day lol:D

Thank you :)

Best thread imo should go to the
'ask me anything' thread.
https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/threads/ask-me-anything-about-slots.77569/
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 appreciate the vote - i just wanted to try and give something back as i'm a player as well as someone working on "the other side", and whilst at times as you can imagine it's been deeply frustrating with so much doubt and mistrust, i can honestly say i've been happy to help and will continue to be there to do so - and thanks for whoever made the thread sticky! :)

Hope to see some of you at the meister-meet at ICE... if i'm invited, i'm there!

I wasn't quite done with the year yet, but i can make some suggestions/give some votes in between anyway:

I absolutely am torn in regards to Best thread - for me the two contenders are Harry's remarkable day at VS, and Trancemonkey's ask me anything
I think i'd have to give it to Trancemonkey though, because that thread is most useful to almost everyone, especially newbies!

Harry does get my vote for coolness though :)

Best member? Not something i'm comfortable with..i like a lot of people here loads, and except for a few annoying ones that come and go throughout the years, i think everyone contributing has value. Even if i like some more then others, i wouldn't like to hurt someone s feelings, by picking favorites...

Instead, i'd go for 'member achievement of the year' or something along those lines..I'd say this year JD's walk for charity would be a good contender:thumbsup:

As for Casino's, loads of ups and downs, and as expected also still a few steady rocks (32Red, 3Dice) but i'll post my detailed shortlist in a week or so :)

As for more categories, i think we have about everything covered here!
I'll be back later with more :)

Can we have a new 'PIPA' (Politically-Incorrect Poster award)? :D

Also a special award for that clever bloke who cleans up all the Biermeister prizes? :p

And a special award for CAG members who came onto this thread and told people their award choices before the SECRET ballot has taken place?

I'm not sure if us operators can take part in the vote, but I have to say - TranceMonkey really deserves an award this year.

I've worked in the industry for about seven years now, and spent some time on the supplier side at NetEnt. Still, I have learned so much from TranceMonkey's thread.

It's incredibly informative and gives a great insight to the world of game development. I'm sure if we added up the amount of time spent by TranceMonkey in the course of the year answering queries and giving detailed explanations (often more than once on the same topic, due to the size of the thread!) we would see he probably spent more time than most of us reps combined helping the forum members (I exclude Dan from that one, obviously!) :)

I know we probably can't vote but I wanted to acknowledge the hard work and effort here regardless :)

Best Casino: VideoSlots; not very lucky, but allmost 100% online (except the problems with LAG a few weeks ago) with a wide range of games. Ofcourse weekend booster, casino
races and FS on Tuesday are nice (though it seems I can't pass level 20.......:what:)

Worst: Maybe RedBet; at first I got allways FS when releasing a major slot, but since allmost a year I never ever hear or receive anything from them

Best rep: Dan (speaks for itself.....)

It has been a bit of a difficult year for me financially, and as a result have not played anywhere near the levels of which I have in subsequent years. For this reason it is difficult for me to provide an opinion on many casinos preferring to stick to the one or 2 that I enjoy or have personal loyalty to and who have always been good to me. Videoslots is a close second. Their range of slots is impressive and continues to become more impressive with every passing week. The regular free spins, weekly cash back and casino races are all features which I am sure for myself, as well as many, are reasons enough to want to play there. As many have already pointed out, Dan is an incredibly good rep and is highly valued on this forum, which only goes as another plus point in their favour. For me they are a close, very very close second.

My number one choice though is still 32Red. It is where most of my deposits are played when I am able. I know they have taken a lot of flack over the last couple years, downgrading cashout times and downgrading the dish of the day offers amongst others and I agree that their prescence on the forums has been somewhat absent recently. I am sure they have their reasons for all of these changes and it is not my place to question that or them. As players we all choose to put our money where we feel the most comfortable and for me that still stands for 32Red. I cannot speak for other forum members, but for me they are and have always been very good. Cashout times are unimportant, at least for myself. I dont particularly care that I have to wait 2 or 3 days to receive any winnings, it`s not a deal breaker for me. I know that those winnings will be paid, hassle free and problem free, and they always have been.

I cannot think of any other casino that gives me back more than what 32Red does and like I said this year compared to others I have hardly been a player, so to be honest I really deserve nothing, but thats what makes 32Red special. Despite my abscence, many a time this year have I found upon loading my account, free chips of 20 and 32 just sitting there waiting to be played. It has not been requested and they have not been asked for, they have just been given and nothing has been asked for in return. When I compare this to the free 5, 10 or 15 free spins at minimum bet that say video slots would give, I will take the free chips from 32Red every time. They do look after their loyal players. THIS is what still makes them number one in my eyes. I have spent over a decade being loyal to 32Red, and that loyalty has always been returned, even when I can no longer be a regular depositer. They are one of the few casinos to award free chips for Birthdays, hell, most dont even send an email with best wishes these days. But 32Red never forget. These may all be only small things but it is a lot more than any other casino gives me, upto and including the lauded Videoslots.

You already got your award - free beer at the Meister Meeting. :p

LOL - the CAG members can post all they want here since I reference this thread (among others) for the short list. Who knows? They may change their minds when it comes down to the real vote. :D

Best Casino - Videoslots, despite not much luck there. Not many offers but i've been burnt with bonus t's and c's that i tend to avoid. Wager free. Close second for me is SlotsMillion - if offers are you're thing these guys tend to ping them out often (but if like Caddell, if you win they may stop :D)

Rep - don't know if it's a good thing to always see the rep (bit like a referee!) but probably Dan. The Captain follows in the next cart behind him.

Worst? - I don't tend to play at 'bad' casinos so hard to say. Stumped for this one.

There have been some good (relatively) newcomers: Calzone Casino and Play Ojo probably deserve a mention - the latters are wager free as well

Tread - enjoyed reading Trancemonkey's.

Slots - yeah, i'm a sucker...but Bonanza or DHV for me, so BTG. Though i've probably had bigger wins in immortal romance

Worst Slot - Netent (apart from DOA)
