CASINOMEISTER'S PRESS RELEASE:
2 July 2007
Casinomeister June 2007 Round-Up
June 2007 proved to be a highly informative month concerning the state of the online casino industry and the international community that is involved with it.
Casinomeister's Forum is probably one of the most enduring and respected forums on the internet that deals with the online gaming industry. In June there were 373 new threads, 5190 new posts, and 161 new members - six of whom were Casino Representatives. Some of the more popular threads in June dealt with quitting gambling, developing the most "ingenious" slots, and complaining about the Virtual Casino group.
Casino Complaints: There were 31 formal complaints submitted at Casinomeister's "Pitch a Bitch" section. Nearly half of the complaints concerned casinos operated from Costa Rica, eight concerned properties located in Kahnawake. The majority of these complaints were from players located in the US who are having difficulty receiving their winnings.
The Rogue Section: The Fortune Lounge group was moved from the coveted "Rogue" section to the "Bumblings, Blunders and Negligence" section. This listing is reserved for casinos that commit acts of serious stupidity or fail to protect their players from software bugs, stolen data-bases, or other forms of doltish goof-ups.
Accredited Casino Section: There were two new members this month: Blue Square Casino (Wager Works), and Grosvenor Casino (Playtech). Skillground, an established skill gaming site that can take US players, joined Casinomeister's "accredited" skill games section. No casinos were removed from accredited list in June.
New Sections at Casinomeister: Casinomeister launched the entire FAQ, Rogue Section, Casinomeister Complaints, and other "good to know" online casino information in Simplified Chinese. This is geared towards our Chinese speaking friends abroad - and includes Casinomeister "Accredited Casinos" that are 100% localized in Chinese with Chinese support.
Other new sections in June: Donate Now: a list of charities where players can donate their extra winnings. RTG list: A list of all known Real Time Gaming casinos and points of contact, in case players have problems (most of these casinos are unlicensed = no safety net for players). Casinomeister's Annual Bierfest: anyone 21 or over can win free beer or cash at the Bierfest which lasts until the end of September.
