    Yep, it's that time of the year again...the Casinomeister Awards are being assembled, calculated, and kicked around. This is your chance to suggest new and interesting categories, awards, recipients, or any other input for that matter.

    For the newbies, The Casinomeister Awards are dished out right after the Xmas break. It's a super special annual event that's been done since 2001.

    For quite a number of people, these are the only awards that matter...

    The most recent years:

    http://www.casinomeister.com/bestworst2010.php
    http://www.casinomeister.com/bestworst2009.php

    I could use input on best/worst categories. Stupid casino tricks - worst named, and/or anything else you can think of.

    How about funniest/most stupid casino bonus? Didn't see this on the list, but I could have missed it.

    Or even best/most commonly used bonus?

    I remember a thread about something tragic that happened, and the casino used it as an opportunity to use as a bonus. I forget what it was, but it was something to do with people dying I think, and the casino made up a bonus about it. Am I remembering this right?

    Well...In my opinion best casino still isn't up for discussion - 32Red, eventhough there are a few that are trying hard to be up there with 32Red, as far as I know none, or very few player complaints, and always smooth fair and painless playing experience. It's great that some casinos see the light, and understand what it takes to be up there, and I think they deserve mentioning : Nordicbet and RedBet come to mind

    There is a little change for me tho with CS, as RedbetAndy by far has been the most responsive, and fast reacting, to any player issues and suggestions on the forum this year. He has been very active in many general discussions, not directly related to his own casino as well. These are important factors, and help create a good casino/player relationship
    I've been noticing him, so at least from me, eventhough I haven't had any problems myself : You're da man this year Andy.

    That's it from me right now, but I'll be back with more ;)

    I would like to nominate Mr Ben from Nordicbet as Best Casino Manager of 2012.

    Ben does not pop into this forum once every month to post a promotion. He literally visits Casinomeister several times every day. Members have always reported that he is super-fast when it comes to replying and solving problems.

    Nordicbet is one of the most reputable names in the industry. Few or no complaints. Ben has also proven that he is genuinely interested in feedback from members. He has many times done improvements/changes based on relevant threads in the forum.

    Nordicbet's casino section used to be quite boring and not very appealing. I used to see them as a bookmaker with a casino section. But today their casino is one of the best online, and also much more independent from their spots betting.

    I think that a lot of this is thanks to Ben who became Head of Casino Operations at Nordic Gaming Group 2-3 years ago.

    He re-launched Nordicbet Casino in 2011. Made it much more modern and user friendly with a stronger focus on exciting promotions. He also successfully launched Maxino earlier this year. Great new casino with the same high standard as we are familiar with from Nordicbet

    The strong growth in Nordicbet Casino has continued through 2012, which also was pointed out when Betsson earlier this year acquired NGG.

    He is also managing two other brands- Tobet and Triobet, but still has all the time in the world when members are contacting him.

    There are many great casino managers out there that would have deserved this award, but I think it is about time that Ben gets some “official” recognition. He has been a member for a few years, is very dedicated to what he is doing and has a lot of respect for this forum and players in general.

    best manager Redbet-Andy( very helpful for me + he posting in many threads, and he is like another member of forum, but he is manager of casino, thats cool).
    best casino Redbet for fast cashouts and helpful support. Probably they dont win due only euros.
    best software should go to netent, their new games better than MG news, in my opinion.

    Is it just me or has this year been a pretty quite one with regards to online casino's?
    I mean a-lot has been going in the back round in regards to regulation in the USA etc but overall no casino's have been that bad and none that have blown us out of the water with excitement either.
    overall probably a good thing, it is getting harder for the dodgy ones to set up shop, old days they used to be dime a dozen.

    Sorry, forgot to add my two cents worth.

    For me it has to be 32RED. As some of you know I won $15,000 from a $50 deposit and some of us would be in head spin about getting this money but I NEVEZR had any concerns that I was going to get my money from 32RED. I literally had the money in my bank account within 36 hours of pushing the withdrawal button. BY FAR the best overall casino out there and I don't see that changing anytime soon. They are way to ahead of any other outfit.

    Best casino manager:
    Pat Harrison:

    No-one has ever treated me more helpfull, attentive and generous in terms of Online Casinos.
    He is actually a very, very busy man, but always seems to find the time for me when i need something.
    Thanks Pat! :notworthy rock on:)

    On a pretty close second place i would like to recommend Enzo, Ben, Andy and Iano to anyone, who
    is looking for an involved rep/manager, they are all generous, and helpfull, and open to communication at almost any time.:thumbsup:

    But again i say, Pat is just one step ahead ^.^

    Best Casinos:
    32red, best MicroGaming casino out there, Club Rouge is awesome, nice promos, nice comps, top support 99.9% of the time. They have the best manager, the best Marketing manager, and even when i lose, i am still happy there.When i would cashout, i know it's paid there as soon as they can.
    Naturally this goes for their other brands Dash, Golden Lounge and Nedplay too:)

    3Dice, best stand alone software, cool and original games, Super awesome support with one of the coolest chat-rooms. Always free tourneys around the clock for VIP's and non-VIP's,
    Their manager is at a cool second place, and the Floor manager (Anna) is also a gem, very helpfull and ofcourse in my experience they still have the fastest hasslefree withdrawals.
    Great promos around the different holidays and feasts.

    Nordicbet and Redbet are equally good: very generous management, which are also very active reps here, helpfull at all times, open for discussion, nice promos and bonuses, easy loyalty system (Redbet is still finishing the touches of their program though, iirc) I have heard both have super fast payment, but still failed to try myself (could've plenty though)
    Ben and Andy both run more brands then the two mentioned, i assume, that naturally those also deserve the same credit, but i haven't really played there.
    Came to love Netent thanks to these two casinos and their managers!
    *rainmaker has of course also had something to do with that ^.^

    Note: I would've tested Butlers Bingo more too, but since they are Microgaming, i didn't really give them a chance due to budget reasons and 32Red :)
    Still Iano is a really nice, active and helpfull guy, also did some fun contests here, so i will try them the next year.

    I don't know the management of Jackpot Capitol group yet, but i am going to find out more next year:
    What i do know is that they are the only RTG out there im willing to play at: made a few small trips to their casinos, and was surprised at their easy rules and generousity to incent players to come and play there. ( i did some survey not too long ago, and since then it seems like they really listened and improved their promos, and i think they are the most flexible on the rules concerning bonuses etc.


    Worst Casino:
    Gala Casino, they came here promising golden mountains, and their two reps here might have been nice and threw some fun promos, but in the end their support was very hard to reach, and i was told before i signed up that despite me being Dutch, i could play the IGT games (something i really longed for) but of course i could'nt.:(
    Theres nothing wrong with them really if had i just wanted a Playtech Casino, but that was not my interest...

    Best Affiliate site:
    I must say rainmaker is running a site, in a way that i am sort of planning my own soon to launch project:D
    :thumbsup: wtg Rainy, you have my vote!

    Best Casino Info medium:
    Very important to me, and all reps and affy's around, i.m.o. CasinoMeister!
    Thanks for everything, Bryan, Max (except for the undeserved infraction:p), Webzcas and Vortran, i learned a lot, and plan to learn more!
    Also a fun place to hang out at times!

    Best Marketing Manager:
    Mark of course! what that guy does for us we all know, and thats worth a lot of appreciation!!
    Thank you Mark :notworthy


    Thats my 2 cents!

    Every little helps right?

    Just my opinions (rightly or wrongly)




    Best Casino 32 Red, never had any problems, fast widthdrawal, good software, good value and clear bonuses
    Redbet, never had any problems, fast widthdrawals, good software, good value and clear bonuses.

    Best Software For me its usually Microgaming, but this year I perfer Net Ent, for me they have had a lot better games release's than Microgaming.

    Evil Marketing Award CasinoLaVida - due to the misleading emails they sent out, although they apoligised, they still continued to send them out (This isnt a bash, I will update
    my thread when I have more info from the ASA ;)

    Best Casino Group CWC for me, I had a big win eairler this year, widthdrew without any issues and was still welcomed at other casinos in the group, I quite like that not all
    casinos in the group have the same games i.e Buzzluck vs Clubworld

    Best Casino Manager For me again I'm undecided and it's a toss up between three of them, Andy (redbet) - Mark (32 Red) - Tom (Clubworld) each of them are active, respond to
    requests quickly


    Last years awards list is quite long, but will update this post with more when I ave the time ;)
