CM needs a calendar like this, with accredited casinos taking part adding prizes.

behind the doors can be free spins on latest releases, bonus money and some top prizes of cash directly in casino accounts. or of course nothing, a message with keep trying etc.
if players are restricted at the casinos in witch won the prizes, to be able to exchange the prize in tickets for a final lottery with cold hard cash, maybe branded casinos/CM items? i have left out any trace of that site as is an affiliate too, but its system is the best out there rewarding its members not only during christmas when prizes are higher but every day of the year, with 5 chances per day to win a prizes, each openable every hour. this would replace the mostly dead sections of CM exclusive promos at least during christmas. like in that site case, i cant play anywhere anymore but i still have a chance for little cash in the final draw, but for those that can play with no restrictions this would be a casino feast :thumbsup:

Good idea :thumbsup: i hope your idea comes in )

Personally im going to vote via my deposits this year , if i casino cannot be bothered to send out any free chips this year , then i shan't be playing there next year & no it's not about throwing toys out the pram , you play casinos all year , you keep them going the player , if they can't think of you at christmas then sadly they don't deserve your custom whether you winning or not )

i've watched of many threads this year & pretty much all of them have been deposit deposit deposit to get any thing what about the 100s of spent funds in the year & bust out .

Same here Mr J :thumbsup:

Of course I don't expect much but a little 'We appreciate your business all year round' would have worked wonders to secure next years business all year round! (Nothing like a bit of common sense eh :p)

The main places I (won't use the word "expected") hoped for something from have ignored me up to yet, still time I suppose but cutting it close lol.

Already decided new year will see me reduce my gaming budget, probably by as much as 50% cut, its small as it is so I will notice the difference if no-one else does.

Another thing I will be stopping is defending my regular places if I see an undeserving thread appear about them, I will leave that to others and stop out the thread altogether, If its a real bad 'accusation' I may make the odd exception to this "rule"

Usually after dinners settled, washing ups done and kids are entertained, I'd maybe have the odd free chip / NDB. Tomorrow I won't even bother looking around. Can guarantee my Christmas 'presents' will all require deposits which I won't be making :(

You can't even open club world's "gifts" in their emails this year.:rolleyes:

I know Jon, It's getting horrible online now. Maybe we should do "group play" it would be cheaper doing like 50 or 100 bucks than full deposits.:)

You might remember my Christmas tour from last year where i posted total deposits vs withdrawals and Christmas bonuses.

Well, this year i thought i would do nothing and see what happens. Guess what, not a single dime, chip, FS, nada, nix, nothing, niente. So the casino list gets cut down to 2 maybe 3...the rest can kiss my *ss. :rolleyes:

I asked one for a Christmas bonus only to be told 30k in deposits for this year is not enough for a few free chips at Christmas...posted that in a different thread. :mad:

Jon if you are cutting your budget in half, well i will cut it by a factor 10...it will never be more than $500 / month from January onward. I've had it up to my neck with this stuff, this year has been a real eye opener when it comes to loyalty.... it counts exactly a big fat ZERO.

And i can tell you exactly why...this online gambling market has virtually exploded in the last 2 years, casino get so many new sign-ups every day that it doesn't matter at all if a few fall off the cliff, nor whether the games are running smooth or that the players are rewarded according to their loyalty level. "Naaa, just keep them coming through the door and keep that one in the back open so they can f*ck off the soon they become too demanding." :rolleyes:

On top we see every day new terms popping up, never had to accept so many changes to the T&C's in a year and they all were in favor of the casinos, NOT A SINGLE TIME favoring the player. WR have shot through the roof, even good ones like Trada have now 25x D+B or even worse, Energy at 45X D+B .....on top they seem to be waiting and watching like hawks for even the smallest non-adherence to the partially ridiculous rules just to quickly confiscate winnings.

Just had one today again that really p*sses me off every time when it happens...email offer for 100%, message when i logged in reminding me of it...i check the bonus box before i deposit, but no f8cking bonus added...CS = no can do Harry, you are from TH..... so why send me the offer in the first place? CS = oh so sorry, will forward it to the department.... Well no need, because you won't see me ever again. :mad:

This is very nice and good Idea. I think u found the Images (at casinomob ?) they have nearly or almost the same Kalender on their Site only the offers are very different. But really good idea. If the casinos make us already bad offers (Xmas2016) we must stop ourselves to help know that Xmas2017 will be much much better to/for us . In this sense Respect !!!:thumbsup:

Harry im in the same place as you mate , to think how much i've spent at casinos this year to get nothing not even a thankyou at various places i think your right , with the exception of Trada sending me something ( thanks btw ) even the vip reps i've dealt with this year haven't even bothered just closed my redbet account , i had it for years & years , vip reps have gone , 3k in deposits over 8 weeks all losses im fed up with it .

Things are changing & players need to take a long hard think about where they play .

^^ This is a CRACKING post^^ Truth after truth after truth.

Thing is if top management read this at the casinos where we are down thousands, their simple reaction would be "That CM rabble are having another bitch and moan, ho hum"

"Hey boss, we just got another 12 sign ups whilst you were reading that" :rolleyes:

You couldn't of said clearer or better.

Its so Important for casinos to acknowledged there players, I think for there birthdays and Christmas or NewYears.

A little gesture goes a long way. It shows they appreciate your business, and I for one like perks. Wish more casinos had more contest as well, not only for big depositors but for everyone and for prizes that have no wager requirement.

Ill be doing same, no goodwill gesture for the holidays will = no deposits

I can understand the casinos avoiding player rewards at Christmas en masse, but high-depositors no. I felt the same at Sky, 5-figure deposits this year and not even the cheese off a gnat's cock both B-day and Christmas. My answer would have been account closure but as it's the only place I ever play at nowadays I simply took a break for 14 days. They won't see a sorry dime from me either!

Yes, bonuses. I don't take them, I'd rather have half the play time than face this plethora of game exclusions, bet restrictions stupid EV - - - - - - - recurring wagering etc. Obviously I'm lucky at Sky as they have 1x WR on prizes, 10 x D+B on earned match bonuses so it's almost a certainty for a cash-out.

The sad thing is 90% of players seem to fall for this bonus shite - I know beyond doubt now by looking at my affy accounts. For example when a casino has a £10 max with 500% or something, get quite a few £1.67 earnings where it's obvious the player has taken that offer, bust and skulked away. Most players aren't savvy enough to see the huge disadvantage bonuses place them under unless they're not tied to the cash balance. This is bread-and-butter to the casinos and players lap it up. They get 'bonus reliance' and then the goalposts move as you said, dafter and dafter WRs.

I used to take the bonuses, would scrimp and search for them but now having given them up love the freedom. NO worries about what I play, the stake I play it at and when I can cash-out. Much better! :thumbsup:

I am sure that Harry's analogy is spot on. You're just a number now and if you are running at a loss the casino doesn't care because you are bound to recoup some of the losses in the future. Why would you want such player to return? The "kill" has been made, lets move on to the next one.

I am convinced that if you were in proper profit with a casino, you would be showered with gifts and looked after so that you continue to play. There is only one thing that is going to happen after all, those profits will be ploughed back into the casino for them to recoup some of their losses on you.

I wouldn't expect too much back from the casinos in exclusive CM promotions, with the exception of 32Red and Videoslots (and probably a couple of others who I can't think of right now).

Most CM exclusive promotions seem to be 'sign up with us and get an extra 10 spins on startburst' or 'here's a screenshot/wagering tournament/whatever competition, to get you to spend more with us'.

And why should they give anything back? The CM community is FREE market research for them.
Whether the feedback is good or bad, it'll be a continuous resource for them. Whether they 'pay' for it (by giving something tangible back to the comunity) or not

^this is in the hands of Bryan and no one else. on the other site betsson group have had numerous valuable sportbets throughout the 24days, bet365, 888poker/casino, energy and others that usually refrain from offering freebies in any circumstances beside the promos on their websites.i have won 400 so tickets, thats prizes with a value of $400, tourney tickets, freebets, freespins, i couldnt use any, so that is something. problem is that tech work have to be done, i think a calendar like this has to be constructed, to function properly, unless there are templates for this? is a win situation for all parties involved, the CM will earn its fair share of actively involved new registrations and surely deposits(even more if match bonuses are behind the door), casinos will benefit from new activity and this community receive something at the end of the year for the business and the whole feedback, is a good deal. and i think many casino will compete adding prizes, at least batches of free spins. i can name 5 big affiliates that reward their communities with diverse systems based on cash/amazon cards/free spins, CM is huge and have the unbeatable PAB service which neither of that 5 big ones can offer, but this community deserve to be gift rewarded with the free-lots at the end of the year, so excepting the benefit that may come for all parties involved, the thought has to be at the forum member. is a thrill and fun way too, opening the doors, i know from previous 3 years at that site. this year i won prizes worth the previou 2 years combined yet i cant use any.. the story of my life.

As a relatively new member to Casinomeister and to online slots (2 years) and as someone who is limited with their computer tech abilities or the intricacies of online casino's and their workings I think that I have little right to expect rewards from casino's just because I am a member. However there are very many clued up members who's knowledge and experience make a big difference here for both the likes of me as well as Casino's,their Reps,affiliates and Casinomeister itself.But many of them already benefit in one form or another from the connections associated with this site.

All members are already rewarded with access to the Reps from Casino's,which I think should not be underestimated.We also have the services of the Casinomeister team.
I love the special deals already offered to us and take part whenever I can in promos as well as supporting new casino's prepared to give it a go.

Lets hope that we do get more deals thrown our way in the coming year,and lets support the new casino's and their reps who are prepared to put their heads on the block.
But as a very average Joe with my limited knowledge of the industry I am quite content with what being a member of Casinomeister gives me.

Casinos are being way more tight than they need to be. So we have a worldwide economic collapse like we haven't seen since The great Depression, yet whilst working in the casino industry one thing was always true- people with money will gamble regardless of the economic climate.

Lowrollers do not sustain casinos yet the way casinos have gone in the last couple of years you'd think they were being punished somehow, and that the allocation of bonuses and freebies is to the casino's detriment :mad:

Worst is how all casinos are intent on copying each other, you don't see WR being reduced anywhere, or excluded games being re-instated.

Fact is they've opted to follow this route of not rewarding players and giving back as little as possible, and the worst part is that us players are enabling them to do so because we always go back!

Don't hold your breath for 2017 to be any better, in fact it's going to get a whole lot worse. And whilst we're at it I'm going to ask Santa to de-accreditize any casino that changes their terms more than once a year :cool:

All of that may be true. It seems to me that the industry have collectively tightened their belts with this years Christmas promo's and low rollers appear to have had the worst of the deals.
I guess we will not see a rep respond to any of these claims

It's just my own observations on how casinos have gone over the last five or so years, nothing more. If there's a valid non-PR spin answer that a rep or member of management can give in regards to recent practices, I'm all ears :cool:

I mean I'm fairly new to the online industry but in your case you seem to have got a bad deal, the last couple of years have been horrendous across all casinos!

If you consider yourself new to the online industry then I must still be in liquid form!
