Sorry to be so absolutely original, but if comparing the antics of casinos for the best part of a decade, I still see 32Red come out on top, despite hardly ever playing there! :D

Whilst others have been up to all manner of scandals and player- repulsion tactics, I can only see 32Red still be reliable in that sense.

Same games, mostly highly-reliable CS and just 'consistent'. Because that's surely what one looks for in a Casino of the Decade Award.

The likes of Casumo have had more indiscretions and tabloid scandals than the Tories, and other fan-favourites like VS are still stellar in a lot of ways, bar the odd major balls-up. But I'm afraid only one casino stands out for the coveted prize, and that's ol' 32Red!

Casino of the year.

My choice is videoslots
Reason being despite all the new companies coming and going like L&L Europe, Trada, and the rest Videoslots has always been here answering, helping sorting out problems.
Consistant promos, not treating the forum members like children.
And despite lowering the rtp on a few providers it's still my fav casino to goto.

Thanks Goaty, much appreciated.

I think what let them down is that players were previously complaining about the 5% bonus, which must be the lowest in casino history :eek:

I personally don't see the point in it, would have been better totally removed.

For me it was the way they tried to make it so much more difficult to self exclude, tried to justify it saying it was what the UKGC told them was right, then got fined for RG issues couple of years later. I couldn't pick a casino that has deliberately attempted to make it more difficult for problem gamblers to stop playing.

As much as that? :eek:

Granted, it is a bit....'negligible' :eek2:

Thing is I stopped factoring bonuses as a yardstick years ago, as casinos either stopped them altogether, wrapped them up in convoluted terms, or just made them utterly threadbare. But as an 'all-round' casino that keeps itself in good stead and avoids purposely shafting players like *others* round here, I fail to see how they wouldn't get a nod :cool:

Despite the last year at videoslots. I would still vote for them as casino of the decade.

We’re gonna give casino of the decade to some unknown casino that is barely visible here on the forum?

They have

Fast cash outs. They set the standard since I can’t remember.

Personalized RTP info readily available.

Battle of the slots

They are here on the forum 24/7 sorting people’s complaints

The list goes on.,,

They have done this consistently. The thing they did with lowering the rtp was not so great but they had to so they can still offer the stuff we all got used to.

In the end they are a business and will do stuff to stay profitable. That’s the goal of any business.

They went from fast cash outs to 24 hour pending. No flushing. And no weekend cash outs.

And let’s not forget that long thread on responsible gaming and how they handled that.

I like Casumo too! But why does nobody comment anything about Betsafe, a casino from Betsson Group? I have been playing there for a long time and from my personal experience I never even once had any problem with them.

Comparing Betsafe with the most of the sites out there, it's a serious organization/gambling provider that has top-class customer service with top-notch skills of spotting problem gambling signs, a great choice of games, fast withdrawals without fucking around (no matter they are small or large), cashback offers and a good treatment for loyal customers plus their site looks outstanding, easy to use and always works smoothly.

Have not tried Betsafe, sounds good. I dont think anybody has mentioned Cashmio. I forget about them because everything is seamless. Withdrawals fast and service good. They credit spins without question if something fails. Friendly as you like and really do seem like the happy casino. I wish they had better rewards.

Casino Of The Decade: Videoslots

If considering a decades worth of work I choose them.

Top of their game on everything and i cant find better bang for my buck for rewards. Ive not seen any screenshots of other jackpot wheels or prize draws.

I would like to see something that mentions the RTP in reviews though or something maybe to highlight the reality of the current state for any newcomers.

Casino Of The Decade is an impressive accolade and i can understand why the RTP issue could sour it but that said they get my vote as they tick all the boxes in all other areas.

I really don'think either deserve casino of the year (arguably) but for decade I'd say it's a coin flip between VS and 32Red
Whether you dislike any recent changes it doesnt undo a decade's worth of dedication here and the simple fact is is, even today, issues get sorted and if you play by the rules, you'll get your winnings

Casino of the year and decade has to be VideoSlots. The reps constant input on here deserves that alone, always helpful and polite despite the crap he/she has to deal with sometimes. Despite being 85k up at VideoSlots this year, withdrawals are still processed within minutes and they still offer me 100% bonuses and offers throughout the year. No other site would do that and Betfred, Betway have banned me for winning less.

Fall from grace: Kindred Group. They effectively stole circa 3500 EUR monthly commissions when they closed my affiliate account down earlier in the year. No warning and refused to answer any e-mails.

Best Casino Group: No brainer, L&L Europe - they have grown significantly this year on CM, great rep and casino experience.

Worst Casino Group: Viral Interactive - They open a site for a few months, scam players and then open another with a new name. Rinse, repeat...

No Brainer for me. I vote for Videoslots Casino!

I think everyone knows I would vote for them. As others stated they have super duper insanely fast cashouts. huge choice of slots, battle of slots, wheel of jackpots.

Yes they do and have made huge cutbacks the last year and a half and it appears to be getting more and more worse. But they still keep their withdraw times at the same timeframe. If this changed I would stop playing there instantly. But other than that. They deserve to be voted Casino of the decade. Oh and the rep is also here 16 hours every day.

Yes. I've been member of Betsafe about 8 years now and never had any problems. CS is in good level and lots of promotions going on every time. No mines in terms and all works as it should. So why not one of the candidates.
