    Not on your list , but the Casino has to understand and value the Live Casino Player. They can demonstrate that in lots of ways. Many online casinos focus on just slots players whilst having live games and they don't make the most of what they have.

    I think the licensing jurisdiction isn't too relevant here as CM members are almost all aware to avoid Cup-o-cocoa - only casinos, and all on here will have a UK or IOM or MGA or Kahnawake license anyway. Gibraltar is largely irrelevant now due to being usurped by the UKGC.

    So far as I expected, cash-out times and games available. Bonuses are interesting as many still take them although personally I seldom do unless they have your (good point!) option of cashing-out before WR is complete.

    1. Games (must have Bonanza). :)
    2. Trusted.
    3. Neteller + Fast and big payouts (24hrs max for 25k, 20min for less).
    4. Freerolls.

    Now there are no freerolls though, at any casino, not really. Just 1 left AFAIK. They say "free" but you pay one way or the other.
    So you can say that it is just the first 3 things that I look for.

    transparent terms.

    Anything that leaves me having to try and read between the lines makes me press the x button on the browser immediately, trust is almost ceartinly flushed down the bog like a dunover log as that is the first thing i look at (well, after i establish that they have doa ;) ) First impressions count n all that.

    1. Recommended by CM
    2. Location of licence
    3. Loyalty and/or ongoing bonuses (I regularly take Royal Panda's Bamboo bonus on a Friday, GUTS' Daily Double Bonus on a Monday and CR's twice weekly bonuses - CR also chuck in a few random VIP point topups my way)

    My "other" vote is my most important thing: cashout limits. So many casinos are built for entertainment players these days with daily cashouts of 5k or less max. A casino needs to be able to guarantee me they can pay out what I win without any messing around.

    I put down games choice but these days all casinos are pretty much the same anyway.

    Good to see GREAT minds think alike!!!!

    My big no.1 - is can i get my winnings back in my neteller asap. (no-one beats the immediate 0.0 seconds of Will Hill*, although VideoSlots close 2nd)
    I wish 32red were like this then i would play there more often and goes without saying one of many reasons that I give Cassava a very wide berth.

    Number 2 - Unless a Casino is either accredited by CM or been given the Mighty Meisters (you lot) seal of approval then I don't tend to wander off. Learnt that lesson the hard way.

    Number 3 - This is more a recent requisite, having suddenly realised I prefer to play GreenTube Slots to Netent, actually come to think of it I prefer most other softwares to Netent these days.​


    * Well they don't have much else going for them, Impo ! ! !

    Deposit bonus size/percentage/wagering requirement. I already have accounts at plenty of reputable, licensed casinos across all the softwares I want to play, so to be perfectly honest a juicy bonus is the only thing that gets me interested. As far as ongoing promotions, I have no way of knowing that before I sign up and start playing so it's not a factor when deciding whether to sign up.

    LOL....you're lucky that term even bothers you. As long as I get my £121.54 and free T-shirt from the points shop, I'm OK. :thumbsup: :cool:

    Ah yes you reminded me of something else. The very, very first thing I do is scroll down the homepage and look for who owns it. If I see Cassava, ProgresssPlay, Imperium Solutions, Cadell, Nektan or some other white label provider I don't bother. Not that they are all bad: just that I know their terms will not suit me.

    T.V adverts :eek:

    As per my vote the main thing for me is trusted by a 3rd party such as here,
    quick pay out
    ongoing bonus's / loyalty scheme

    The big cash outs do not really effect me albeit one site has a max cap of £500 per transaction and only 2 transaction per 24hr which is accredited and got stung by it the other day

    You'll like the new Sunbets casino then, as I couldn't see any limits there when examining it and there's VIP, but you only get Microcloning and Playtake slots. Mind you, with a huge corporation funding them I wouldn't expect any limits. You're right about Nektan and Progress Play, the casinos are OK but recently a poster on here won a 14k?? cash-out on High Voltage and then found he could only take 5k a month, or whatever it was.

    Horses for courses.
