Best Casino for me is of course Video Slots for so many reasons.

Dan from Video Slots as best Manager/Rep as he is reliable and so hard working.

Best new casino for Aussies Fair Go and House Of Jack

Most helpful members Harry, Trancemonkey, Kasinoking and Dunover.

Funniest members Goatwack, Jonno and Dunover.

Worst News of the year was losing a lot of good casinos due to Australian government laws.

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?



If not said yet, can we have a category for Best Casino Representative?
Suggested criteria :
1) Prompt answer,
2) excellence is customer service and
3) going above and beyond to make sure players are satisfied.

And without a doubt my vote would go to Daniel from VideoSlots! This guy is just incredible, never sleeps and it makes things happens always with the player's best interest in mind and that is what I call outstanding customer service!
Dan may not give long answers to our PMs but he definitely get the job done!

Cheers

Teka

OK, as it's being done in the open I'd say:
Rachel best rep at Trada.
Best CS Casumo - always quick, polite and get it done for you!
Casino - Videoslots, they've established a position through hard work and innovation via interaction with players that's gonna take some catching up with by the rest.
Most annoying rep - that Captain Rizk with his pants on the outside that I keep having to avoid at various affiliate conferences around Europe. (only joking, fine casino!)
Software, will have to go for BTG stretching the boundaries with their frustrating yet fun slots.
Worst Casino - any like 6black, DiamondVIP, TimesSquare and the numerous other representations of the biggest shower of shit on web.
Best VIP deal - Trada
Best Download - they're all cumbersome and error-stewn, prefer the click-and-play flash games.
Best Casino Group - GIG
Best Thread - Bebo's.
Best new casino - Novibet
Greediest Member - Bryan, who managed to clear all the mini bread rolls from the basket at the Zoo restaurant in Berlin from under my nose while I was talking to the Slotsmillion manager. Next time I'll take a photo on my phone to prove they were really there. :p

Thanks to Max behind the scene for maintaining the often thankless and frustrating task of handling PABs!

Finally congratulations to Dave etc. for the work involved in changing the forum over to the new refreshed format. Like a nagging missus, we'll all get used to it after a while. :thumbsup:

For me..

Best casino Videoslots closely followed by Rizk,Betat,Trada,Royal Panda and 32Red.

Could we have a Best non accredited casino category please?

Best non accredited casino is Casinopop by a country mile. Fast withdrawals,great customer service and a very helpful casinomeister rep.

Best Rep has to be Dan the man from videoslots. Even when he faced with the most prickly questions he never seems to lose patience. Following Dan I would tip my hat to Rachel from Trada,Captain Rizk and Mark at 32Red. There are other great Reps but we hardly see them active. The rep that I would like to see more of in CM is Melvin from Royal Panda.

Best Customer service is a tough one because this year I have had little experience of using them but I would opt for Rizk.

Worst Casino? I would have to say Bet365.

Best slot developer has to be Big Time Gaming.

Slot disappointment of the year for me was Planet of the apes because I had high hopes before its launch

Best thread has to be Harry's Pass it on thread

I feel having a non-accredited section would be pointless personally, as it simply devalues the whole accreditation process. Then we may as well have neither, and just stick to individual scores for each one. Call me silly :D

But surely if quite a number of posters indicate the same casino it could help influence them being given a look at by Casinomeister for becoming accredited?

As I understand it it isn't about Bryan approaching casinos in regards to accreditation...but rather casinos stepping forward and applying for BBF and adhering to the process.

That is very true but I would suggest that most decent non accredited casino's would have already approached Brian at least once without success.
It is not exactly lobbying to post your appreciation for a non accredited casino once a year

best casino- Videoslots - i cant argue with RTP that has just dipped below 100% personally, plus the weekly spins, the amazing cm promotions, the fact i can still play!!!!!! (that's a pretty big one)
best cm rep - Dan videoslots - hands down the most reasonable and awesomely helpful guy out there. seriously puts in the time for us. thank you dan!
best chat support staff member - this year my vote goes to YODANKA from videoslots - for shocking me with so much personality and humour and also getting the job done. honestly made my year!
biggest disappointment - my vote is not actually for a casino, but a lack there of! and for the disappointment felt by all us australians when the government decided it would be fun to amend the interactive gambling act... made me cry.
best player experience- The videoslots tournament players chat
. Honestly, this chat is my social life, and i love it. The people who grace my freerolls every 2 hours are the most amazing and beautiful humans... or bots ^_^ lol. we laugh together and cry together. good times, great banter, and heavy censoring- so we don't ever get offended EVER! Not even when someone is trying to say outlandish things such as hello or starting. oops i mean ****o and s****ing ;)

I can't make my mind up so it's two for best casino.
32red, they have been good to me this year and Video Slots just slid in there with their extremely generous Xmas promo.

Trada for cs. I see the rep on here doing a brilliant job.

I think I have to give a shout out to Dunover for reviewing all the new slots over the year. He does a brilliant job. I don't know were he gets the patience sometimes.

As a player with around 3k eur deposit per month I need to argue on the value a casino offers me for the huge amount of money I spent. And so my answer is clear:
Worst casino and biggest dissapointment this year: Videoslots and Guts:
- withdraw fees, bad and slow loyalty support, very bad „cashback“ when it comes to any „higher“ bonus.

Best casino: redbet:
-improve slot selection, very fast and good VIP support and offers.

Best rep here: Dan from videoslots - although I never had any experience with him personally
