I haven't found any that I'm absolutely thrilled about. I used to love 32 Red downloadable casino but since there's only an online version
now available in Canada, which I've played at many times, it doesn't seem to be as much "fun". And the selection of slots is much narrower.
Given that I think I'm going to try some new Meister winners from years past! In all good faith, I'll have to pass on voting this year, while I do
some more research! Happy holidays and Stay safe.

Imho, Twin would be on top of my list. Lots of promos, Tournaments and Excellent Cs. They are on top of their game.

The Worst: Slotsmillion, Started off great here but the longer i play here, I see they do not care about anything on their site, yeah they might add a couple off new games each week and that's about it. I guess they will fall off the face of the earth in a couple of years time or less.

Bit reticent being on the 'other side' of the fence but here goes:

I nearly feel, Best Casino could enjoy a year's hiatus. It seems too many (current, formerly?)) stellar casinos have opted to rest on laurels and coast; oh sure, some pretty good outfits and still running strong.
But a fair few could really use a kick in the pants and a reminder (IMO) it's the players put them to the forefront of people's minds. I'll mull over my CAG vote as it becomes due.

Best rep. I interact with a fair few and while I've little cause to interact with Jan, he's been (consistently) present all year and in the forum addressing concerns and participating (whether that qualifies as rep, manager or both, dunno).

The guys and gals of Pragmatic Play get a shout-out for providing nearly year-long active promotions and contests for the membership. However, because it's mostly 'behind the scenes' and no direct ongoing 'singular' forum presence, hard to cast a vote, but feel they should be recognized.

To the two points above, hard not to recognize all the L & L sites as best group.

Best/Worst Software - the ridiculoulsy slow spinning of StakeLogic kills my soul.
BTG - love them, or hate them - and yes, Megaways is so very, very long in the tooth - there's really, no other software more talked about.

Forum Hightlights - Corona, it's the 2020 way of life. There's no escaping it, much like pervasive politics.

Member Achievement. I just want to point out, as some maybe arent quite attuned. While 'merely' staff/admin and sometimes seen on the boards fleetingly, I hope people come to realize, there's the million things the forum doesnt see. The tireless and often, thankless work people do to keep this site kicking. Pere for keeping the site ticking (and the HUGE amount of work done regarding projects) and the team of techs, LadyJ for her promotions work and rep coordination, among her other duties (and that shining personality), max for his headaches and working to bring resolution to player issues, monetarily or otherwise with his team, News Hound for keeping us all in the loop. Just......kudos...to you all.


As always looking forward to the awards, and to the membership, when casting your votes, please, look back to the year in totality, not merely those instances and activity of late.

:)

To a bigger, better 2021

Forgot to add worst Casino of the year vote.

Goes to Betzest for the way they blatantly stole a players honest winnings. For not having a clue how the slots work and for not cooperating fully with the PAB.

Yeah still bugs me the way they blatantly stole a players winnings by not having a clue how their slots work.

And just a query @maxd and @Casinomeister . A month ago when the PAB was finished it was stated their reviews was going to get changed. See it is still the same and has an 8/10 rating . Just wondering if it is going to still get changed as it is shocking really that a casino that Blatantly stole a players winnings and gave a massive F you to the forum and members has a review that makes it sound a quite good place to play.

Even if it is not put in the rogue pit where it belongs i would have thought it would have been a matter of urgency to at least get a warning on their review stating how they are untrustworthy and will confiscate players winnings as they have no idea how slots work,

100% agree.
I really think its a shame that with todays technology, casinos cant implement a "woops you cant bet that high, you are using a bonus" pop-up.
Or i mean, they can, but wont unless ukgc forces their hand.

Not that he did bet too high in the betzest case.

Best Casino I have struggled to decide between AllBritish and Videoslots but I have to go for Videoslots this year. I love L&L but I think that Videoslots have gone quite some way to balance their rtp issues in the form of additional battle evenings and I still value their reward system. That and their ever present team just swung it for me.
Best Provider. No Limit City have provided me with endless fun with their fantastic slots
Best Game Warrior Graveyard xNudge just edges it for me
Best Casino Group L&L
Best CM Casino Rep - L&L Jan

without question the best casino is one from the L & L group, as col said they are all superb, so all british here.

worst I’d say VS or casumo, both offer the player a terrible experience, whether this be RTP or sow and kyc nonsense.

best slot, there isn’t any since DOA2

At VS that function have existed since 2015 or 2016 and on several other casinos as well. Its very easy to build, saying anything else is BS as I was part building that function. There is also function for players to set max bet protection so they can avoid pressing "max bet" by accident.

As working in the industry I wish to nominate the best and worst regulator and regulation.

Best regulator have to be Denmark as they work with operators for the players. UK is actually getting 2nd place, they are not as bad as I thought few years back.

Worst regulator goes to my home country Sweden. The regulator and the minster are clueless. The whole system and legal structure is a failure and as being Swedish, its shameful. No other country in EU had so many players leaving the regulated market within a such a short time frame. At the moment its more beneficial for both players and operators to not have a license or to play on an unlicensed site, as its 100% legal for both to play and operators outside of the regulation.

Eh... you guys are voting for the casino that offers the lowest of the low rtp portfolio. Ok.
For their freebies and retention skills? Ok...

I don’t understand but I respect your opinion.
Lets also not forget the amount of casinos that have left the UK market over the past year because they can not afford to stay or they simply do not wish to take the risk of huge fines from the UKGC.
I was as vocal as anyone last year about Videoslots decision to reduce rtp,and especially how they went about it but they are a solid casino who are willing to deal with player issues in here.
I have recently gone through the list of accredited casinos that are available to the UK market and there really are not that many left. Not all of their slots are offered with a lower rtp.
I would miss them if they left more than any other single accredited casino which makes them my casino of the year.

What a year it has been, eh?

Haven't been as active here, or in the casinos, but i think i can safely give a few votes:

Provider of the year: BTG
Still loving each and every basterd slot they push out, and can't stay away from playing them :)
Close contenders were Nolimit and Relax, as the likes of say Deadwood and Money train 2 are also instant classics.
So after that shared 2nd place 3d would go to Push gaming, but they haven't done much since Jammin Jars i.m.o. at least not much that interests me..

Casino of the year: i only play at a handful of places, and would i still be able to enjoy MrGreen i may well have voted for them, but since that's a nono, i have primarily been playing at Unibet, V&J, Casumo and Leovegas. Of those Leovegas is my absolute favorite, because overall they pay the fastest (when you ask for flushing) have the most personal promo's that actually suit me, and are great in general, both in game selections and regular promos and tournaments. Shared 2nd place this time too, for V&J and Casumo, and a respectable 3d for Unibet.

The latter ones could all improve in the loyalty department, however it's not too bad. But overall i really enjoy my play there!

Game of the year: Money Train 2
There are always various games i love to death, basically every year theres at least one i have to add to the list. This year i won't make it too complicated and overall, Money Train 2 is just the game i played the most, for a good reason :)

Forum of the year: Casinomeister
Fairly obvious and not really part of these awards but hey, gotta give a bit of credit where it's due! :D

Best Thread: The Remarkable CM Community Thread
Still number one in keeping me engaged and putting a smile on my face, two things i can't do without (or reluctantly:p)

I think that's all for now....

Edited to add: not many awards to give, but i would like to give mad props to the awesome Casino and provider reps such as @L&L-Jan , @Mark_32Red , @NolimitCity - Pelle and Co, @trancemonkey and many more! The forum really has added value thanks to you guys :)

And @Casinomeister, @maxd, @dunover, @dionysus, @LadyJelena, @neilw and all you great staff-members i am forgetting: thanks for a great place to hang and keep learning!

When thinking about slot providers and Push completely slipped my mind, for that reason: they seemed to release some games bunched together that were quite good and then, maybe I've not noticed, but been really quiet (just seen a game 'Mystery Museum' this morning that didn't even know was released etc)

Last time i gave them a go was on Joker Troupe on Bwin.

Edit - just checked: only released 3 slots this year

Obviously my opinions are my own and relevant to me as a player in Ireland. Some things I may nominate may not be popular as I've read stories here of people having problems at certain casinos or with providers etc. But I will go on my own experience as you cant always believe what you read on the internet. If I did I would have drank 4 gallons of bleach back in April to be immune of coronavirus.


Best casino
@Team.Videoslots good loyalty programme. They are huge and as a result they deal with a huge amount of shit. In the main pretty well. They've always paid within 30 mins of a withdrawal request so I'm a fan.


&
Allbritishcasino

Strong contender reliability and payouts always efficient. No complaints.



Best provider

@Big Time Gaming had a monster 14000x on lil devil so you guys are alright with me
&
@NolimitCity - Pelle fast flowing highly volatile games that make me want to fire the pc out the window sometimes but when they pay.

Best Rep
@L&L-Jan
Not even close for me. Ever present. Always responsive and helpful.


Best poster/member

@Kroffe

Gifs,memes. Need I say more....


Best thread

Horse racing tips-never any animosity or arguments just folk supporting and willing each other on.



Best moment of the year.

When I found the remote control. Life doesn't get any better......

Mr q best casino
Jan for best rep although he's been sleeping on PMS this week!
I've been really impressed by them - first time I won a decent amount and was wondering how long to process etc and done in under 20 minutes.

Still need to give them a run a bit longer, probably need more providers, but early impression of them are good.
