    We ran one of these a couple of years back but I thought it might be interesting to see what current attitudes are.

    What entices you to sign up to a new casino?

    Please only select options that make a significant impact on your choice. If there is any reason not mentioned feel free to post your reasons.

    It's multiple choice.

    Please answer one of the last 2 options regarding frequency too :thumbsup:

    Cheers,

    Simmo!

    I'd say that would fall under the 'good things in the forum' category really! I know it may sound daft but a decent website makes a big difference to me. You see so many shocking sites out there and people continue to sign up. If a company investing six figures into an internet business cannot spend money on their front end of the operation then they're not worth the risk. Cowboys who don't intend on building a brand or a reputation do this if you ask me

    That's a good point. I've never really understood why some places have such cr@ppy websites :confused:

    Whenever there is a new USA casino allowed it prompts my interest as there are limited options for us. So software was a choice of mine. I'm still a sucker for a good sign up bonus though :thumbsup:

    I'd need to dig it out but I remember signup bonuses won although I thnk there were less options and it was geared up more to the type of promos on offer.

    Good point - can't edit it in to the right place without screwing up numbers so assume the "Good reports" one as Rhyzz suggests :)

    That would be good. Was kinda hoping some casino marketing staff catch it too :D

    Interesting Simmo thanks. :) Hadn't even realized how much I've changed since the beginning when I played every new casino because I could. If I could get there I played it. LOL I kept such good records too, (binders full) of everything about each one. I'm gonna empty those drawers out now. need the space. what a casino glutton I was. :D

    It's interesting to me that information portals have such an impressive influence (59.57 percent polled thus far) in the decision whether or not to play at a new casino.

    In that respect this poll echoes other industry surveys that have shown the growing value players place on reliable information portals like Casinomeister.

    I remember being surprised some years ago when Trent University, commissioned by eCOGRA, conducted that massive international study of some 11 000 or more players and came up with a figure of 44 percent (I think it was) respondents frequenting online gambling information portals.

    I guess it makes sense that as an online gambler becomes more experienced he or she seeks the information and common-interest value of joining a good forum and exchanging views on issues and venues.

    I've always been frustrated that we have not yet found a way to reach newbie internet gamblers to extol the virtues of research and shared experiences available in forums - it could save so many of them from bad initial encounters with crappy online operators...and deny business to said operators in the process.

    You forgot to add boredom to the list. :p I chose "something else" with my other picks because I get bored playing the same MG/RTG things - if a new casino has different software or different games, I'm more likely to want to try it.

    Being from the US, I feel an important option would be depositing/withdrawing methods. Many casinos have US players by the tail when it comes to those two items and they know it.

    I will only play at a casino if it gets raving reviews from trusted forum members and accepts QuickTender. I'm basically done searching for new casinos, though.

    I was surprised at myself for clicking on the forum information box.lol It's official, I was a free chip whore in the beginning. :lolsign: But not anymore I've seen the light but I am afraid Jetset that there isn't much you can do for a lot of the newbies until they too mature a little. :)

    Good point chayton for variety Is the spice of life so they say. :thumbsup:
    (I lost my deposits so fast the other night I could not believe it. It reminded me of an old horse I use to ride years ago where I'd be ducking tree branches one minute and the next on my ass in the middle of the stream going wth??) Maybe if a casino guaranteed us longer play for our buck, but then that would ruin the 'random' thing wouldn't it. [rolleyes]

    I must say I love welcome bonuses..so no deposit, free play, free spins are important.
    More than that I like few platforms..IGT slots, Wagerworks, MG...and I will love to try WMS slots..but only UK players are allowed.

    I pretty much stick to the few places I have played at for quite a while. The only change has been a while back I added 3dice to my list, because of what I read about them here. It is now one of my favorite places to play.

    It's a combination of different factors for me, but mainly a good welcome bonus - so I voted for that. :thumbsup:

    BTW, this weekend I signed-up at my 215th online casino... :eek2:
