I'm starting to have some issues with PokerStars. After 15 years on their tables, poker and slots I'm seeing some cracks in their quality. Can't fault the support, bet tracking and withdrawals but when they got into slots I believe they are slipping. I have issues with PokerStars exclusive slots especially. Promotions that encourage multiple spins, bland own games that rarely pay anything close to the screen representation i.e free spins that result in less that 10x wins. I rarely play them. Also, and this is a tech issue which could be normal, slots that won't load or slots that 'stick'. A stuck slot can take up to 24 hours to resolve with no play until it is. Just my comment on justdoit's post. I also nominated PokerStars as best casino but will be interesting who takes the title and why.

they did have a problem when they did upgrade or add new Relax games, yes support replay is just script replay not much help (like all other casinos they doing script), they have good games poker is ok, good promotion fast cashout in 1-2 mins I like it not bad, one thing I don't like it coz they remove total bet on Playngo and some other providers cant see how much you betting, you have to guess on a coin, UKGC should ban coin betting 😂
Regards to free spins or free bonuses I had a good win from it on past many times best support you get from Pokerstars on their twitter

Right here
Greetings,
I live in the USA so my choices are limited obviously to just those sites that still accept players from our country.

Choice for Best Casino of the year -- hands down it is 3Dice

Best Casino Manager - Anna from 3Dice

Best Customer Service - 3Dice


I don't post a lot even though I have been a member here since 2009. The call for awards though brought me here to respond. Over my 15 or so years of online gaming I have tried most places good and bad. I started playing Online Poker but then moved into slots and VP. I got burned at some casinos in the beginning, but always learned a lot as I expanded my playing time and had various experiences. Every time something happened that was a problem, I added it to my list of "be careful" items and moved on to a different casino looking for what I feel is the BEST one. I have probably tried over 100 casinos over the years. 3 Dice is where I play the most and have the greatest trust in their business operations. 3Dice is hands down, the best casino out there IMO by a landslide.

3 Dice has never given me any reason to "be careful" ---- There are no surprises and they treat their players very well. Yes, I am an active higher limit player so I am given recognition for that in their comp system, called "Loyalty" awards. There is a benefit given every 10 days and on your birthday or special events like Christmas tied to the amount of your wagering. But that doesn't buy my patronage and is not why they get the majority of my business. They have earned my trust and always deliver as promised. That is why I play there on a daily basis. I also have a very nice win record...which influences my decision.

What is so great about their promotions is that you get to KEEP any bonuses or promotions given when you cash out your winnings. Most sites deduct any promo dollars from your cash out, but NOT at 3Dice. Withdrawals are handled very quickly, usually within a few hours although your only option if in the USA is withdrawing y bit coins. I had a recent $54,000 from hitting 5 wilds on one spin at a high bet, (screen shot posted previously) No problem withdrawing that large of a win. ZERO Problem. They didn't limit what I could withdraw. It was done quickly and at the payout option in terms of amount and timing I requested.

They run both FREE tournaments and paid entry tournaments continuously with nice prize pools. They continue to introduce new fun games which keeps it interesting.

Customer service is excellent and a representative is always available to speak to you with the correct answers. They don't blow you off like other sites who simply give you a link to the T&C's when you ask a question. If you have any input on the site, they listen attentively. Anna as Casino Manager, is available for any questions or concerns and responds quickly. If there is ever a rare problem that pops up, they listen and correct it.
100% agree, Diane. :) NEVER had an issue dealing with anyone over there. Totally gets my vote.

I live in the U.S. so my choices are limited. The two casinos I have had the most luck with are in the same group, same software, etc. They are the Lincoln Casino, and Liberty Casino. Most of my winnings come from the Lincoln Casino, but as far as payouts, customer service, and management are concerned they are equally good. I have never had a problem with getting my money in a timely fashion from either of them and customer service is always helpful at both places. Because I win more at the Lincoln Casino, I would rate them as best.
Never played either but it's nice to know ..MGM I play

Best Casino: Videoslots - No casino will ever come close to them, ever.

I've seen a lot of people nominating L&L and I'm sure they are correct if they live outside of Sweden.
I wanted to try them so signed up at Nobonuscasino, and I must say that in my 13 years of playing I've never experienced such a bad casino.
I think I need to have a talk with @L&L-Jan :)

Best and Worst of Online Gambling - Meister Awards for 2021 - I need your input!

The Meister Awards are probably the most anticipated awards for the entire online casino industry. Considered by many to be the only awards that matter because these are awards with the players in mind dished out by our community. It's not some high fiving back slapping industry event - these are awards that are for the Best and the Worst entities and people that are associated with online gambling. This is your chance to let us know what casino should be on our short list. Also you can suggest new and interesting categories, awards, recipients, or any other input for that matter. :cheers:

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 the early days of 2001.

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

The most recent years:

2020 Meister Awards,Best and Worst in Online Gambling - Casinomeister
2019 Meister Awards,Best and Worst in Online Gambling - Casinomeister

LOL, for shits and giggles here are the Awards from 2008 :D
The Best and Worst of Gambling for 2010 Not too much has changed...

How we decide

Most Importantly: I create the shortlist of the Best Casino of the year with the input from this thread.


The short list will be voted on (in a secret vote) by active Meister Minions at the end of December.

So, who/what will it be?

Best Casino
Best Casino Group
Best Casino Manager
Best Customer Service :drink:
and.....
Hi,

To be fare and honest I've only played online casino a few time and only with leovegas i won money there but never got paid a penny

Hi Bryan,

I've only played online a few times and only with leovegas. leovegas had everything I was looking for great setup.

I hope I entered this vote in the right spot very new to this.

Was lucky to have many casinos I can play with but have to stick with 3Dice and Videoslots.com . Both casinos have tournaments to while away my time when my budget will not allow me to play in real . Though lately Videoslots have had their RTP lowered and that their special tournaments (Monday Frenzy , Epic Thursday , Mystery Fridays and even the monthly Battle Weekends) has me left out most of the time because of their game selection (been vocal about this on their thread but always fell on deaf ears) . .so

Best casino : 3Dice
Best casino rep : Anna and the 3Dice gang

Best Casino -Split decision between LevelUp and JackpotJillvip

Best Casino Group - The elusive and mysterious Jokaviproom, JackpotJillvip, and Wolfwinner owners

Best Casino Manager - I believe us Australian players aren't worthy of a Casino Manager acknowledging us. I've never had access to one possibly due to my minimum deposit / minimum bet disability

Best Customer Service - What is this mythical entity? Surely not all the copy/paste Live chat operators that I've dealt with?

Best New Casino- JackpotJillvip

Best New Slot - Royale with Cheese Megaways by Isoftbet provided it's happy and feeling generous

Best Provider - Isoftbet or ISB as they now masquerade as for Australians or NoLimitCity provided they don't restrict the only casino left allowing Aussies to buy otherwise unobtainable features or free spins at exorbitant cost and disappointing results.

Worst Government regarding gamblers choices - Australia's ACMA protecting / abusing me like I wish my daddy did

Best Casino Group: Casino Rewards (I am more than aware they have more than their fair share of critics, but my own experiences with them these past 8 years has largely been - and continues to be - positive)

Best CM Accredited Casino: Jeez. Not exactly spoilt for choice here for a couple of reasons....
1. I have not opened a casino account for over 5 years
2. Some of my favourite former haunts (GUTS, Maria, Royal Panda) all pulled out of the UK market (yeah....thanks for that UKGC,
I am getting back to YOU later!). :mad:

So that basically leaves me with Bet365 or 32Red. OK then, 32Red gets it.

Best non-CM Accredited Casino: Gala Casino
F**KING MASSIVE Bag of Tiny Shrivelled Up And Useless DICKS award: UKGC! Go die in a fire, you bunch of mollycoddling killjoy w*nkers!! :mad::puke::machinegunner::axeman:

Best Rep: Erm, do I just go with Jan by default? Jan has been a bit quieter this year I think, but I don't think anyone has really done enough to
make me change my mind.

Faceplant Award: Unibet. Yes that's right Unibet. Don't bother learning the lessons from what Trada did a couple of years ago, when they, about a month before the CM awards were due to be announced, decided to throw an almost certain Best Casino nod straight into the f*cking bin by moving platform to Aspire Global. Remind me where exactly Trada are now? Oh yeah...the CM cesspit. Exactly where they belong.

So then Unibet, what did you do to emulate Trada's faceplant? Oh yeah, you decided to relinquish your position as "the last bastion of max RTP in the UK" less than 2 months before this year's CM awards. Absolutely brilliant move, I say! Good bloody grief.....read the goddam room for crying out loud....:rolleyes:

Best software provider: Almost by default (because they appear to be the only one who have yet to succumb to the temptation to offer reduced
RTP to the greedy casinos who have the auducity to plead poverty while ripping us off at an increasing rate) - Big Time Gaming

Although, if I were to vote purely based on my slotting success stories this year, it is Microgaming (pre-2016) hands down.

Worst provider(s): Pragmatic Play (because of their dubious association with unscrupulous streamers) and Play N' Go (because of their obscenely low RTP models and having nine million slots that have the words Rich Wilde at the start of the title - seriously, just bore off already!).

Best slot of 2021: Gotta say I have a fondness for Money CART 2. Although if Jurassic Park REMASTERED was considered to be a "new" slot (I don't think it is to be fair), it would be my winner by a country mile. I absolutely ADORE that game.
Honourable mention to two games that I can't play, as I don't have an account at a casino that offers NLC slots: East Coast VS West Coast and xWays Hoarder xSplit.
I tried these in demo mode and if I were able to play these with real money, I absolutely would do. Very enjoyable. :thumbsup:

CM Lifetime Member Achievement Award: There are quite a few people that I would happily see getting the nod this year.
It could be for any number of reasons.....a very active poster and contributor, a peacemaker, someone who offers an alternative point of view,
a sharp wit with a great sense of humour to help enhance the enjoyment of the forum for the membership.
Or even someone who is just flat out nice and lovely like literally all the time (yes mina, I am talking about you).

But I am going to go with one of the Paleo Meister (green lettered) folk - Nate

And as Bugs Bunny would say.....That's All Folks!
Best wishes to everyone on the forum in 2022. Happy New Year to all of you, wherever you are. :cheers:
