Casinomeister - Info on the Watchdog Site

Casinomeister was founded by Brian Bailey in 1998. Bailey realized way back then that there were no governing principles in the online casino industry. And because of a few rogue casinos that were not averse to ripping off unsuspecting players the entire industry was losing trust and goodwill among online gamblers. Casinomeister was founded to inculcate this goodwill and trust by encouraging the sincere operators to establish industry codes and by hounding out rogue casinos from the industry. Its stated mission a decade ago is as true now as it was then. "Trust is what it’s all about. Our mission at Casinomeister is to provide solid information; information that enables players to make smart choices. Since trust is spawned by information, the more players know about online casinos, the more at ease and safer they will be."

The first and foremost task of the Casinomeister web site is to provide information. And this it does in a number of ways. The Essential Online FAQS is a compilation of sound advice that will benefit not only new players but those who have been gaming online for years. It covers among other issues, how to find safe online casinos, online casino banking and bonuses and essential player tips. Its list of accredited and rogue casinos is authentic and compiled after investigation. New information is regularly added through onsite news, newsletters and web casts.

Another important function of Casinomeister is to help recover funds due to online players from rogue casinos. Bailey, who is known as Casinomeister, has such a fierce reputation that usually a simple e-mail from him is sufficient. For ten years Bailey has been interacting with the leaders in the online casino industry, which include online casino owners and managers, software developers and regulators of the industry. Bailey says, "The established entities in the online casino world understand that Casinomeister makes a difference." Players who need his assistance should follow the instructions in The Pitch A Bitch section of the Casinomeister web site.

Casinomeister knows that punishing the errant is only one side of the coin. There is a need to reward the best. For the last eight years Casinomeister has been awarding honors to the best players in the online casino industry in a variety of categories such as best casino, best casino service, best software developer and best casino affiliate. The award is in the form of the Casinomeister shield that the winners proudly display at their web sites.

Casinomeister calls itself Casino watchdog and player advocate of the industry and this is the view of the industry as well. That is the reason that Casinomeister was chosen as Top Watchdog of the Year for 2002, 2003, and 2004 by the readers of Gambling Online Magazine. In order to recognize the contribution of Casinomeister to the online gaming industry, Cryptologic released an online slot game, Casinomeister, that is based on its activities.

This is a good site to be a member of (CasinoMeister) that is. I think that for any of you out there that are looking for a reputable site and also an online casino players advocate site and help in addressing issues then this site could certainly be of value to you.

Agreed just like doing any other form of research online if you look around to find what's most common and popular chances are that if you stick with one of those options you'll be fine. The same thing really applies to online casinos if you find an online casino in google and check several of the sites that are in the top listings in google and find that there are a few common casinos amongst them then it's probably a good idea to play at one of these casinos that has a good presence on all of these sites.

Although CasinoMeister can be a good site at times my personal belief is that the information found on their site can sometimes appear to be bias. None the less most of the recommendations CasinoMeister makes I would agree with. Anyways the best thing to do is to do your own research and I've found that Casino Advisor offers more information then most sites and is a great place to start.
