Hello

Postby slotsjunkie » Wed Sep 11, 2013 1:23 pm

Hello everyone my name is Michael. Thought I would introduce myself before making a thread where I have a question involving online gambling.

Thanks Mr. Pogg for your time it took to eventually get me signed in.

I live in the suburbs in Long Island New York. Most of my gambling funds are spent at land casinos, A.C., Conn., occasionally L.V. I tried several different table games but just not comfortable yet playing those online. I pretty much only concentrate on slot tournaments online now, where it appears I'm doing very well and get to kill a lot of time pretty much for the cost of peanuts.

I pretty much have the same attitude as most online gamblers. When I win everything is on the up and up, but when I lose everything is rigged. (hope you realize that was a funny)

I've lurked around many different forums over the years, and chose to register here not looking for confrontation from other members or the host and their staff like I've read over and over again at other more popular sites.

After reading many posts written by Mr. Pogg he appears to have an open mind and appears to be fair unlike other online gambling forum hosts.

So hello again and I'm off to put together my question.

Hey Slotsjunkie - it's great to have you posting here.

I very much appreciate the compliments and my genuine intention for this forum is to ensure it remains a positive community. I've circulated many gambling forums over the last 10 years or so and even those that I've been highly active in I've eventually left behind due to the more combative attitudes of some posters. Not wanting to be hypocritical, I would acknowledge that my own approach to participation on the various forums hasn't always been the most positive, but the passing years has made me realise that the atmosphere that allowing arguments to go to far creates is one that puts off and intimidates many more mild mannered or less experienced posters. I want everyone to feel welcome here and as such will be policing the boards thoroughly to ensure that as many people as possible benefit from a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

I to have a background that's been more focused on offline gambling, though I have a lot of experience online as well. For me nothing beats sitting at a table playing a few hands, there's just not the same atmosphere online, but when you can't get to the table online makes a reasonable alternative. And I have enjoyed my time in the NJ and Conn casinos!

Anyway - I personally look forward to reading your thoughts - thanks for signing up!

Hello everyone,
My name is "wolf" and I registered in this forum to be able to take part in discussions about online gambling.
This site caught my attention in an online search for randomness, fairness in online roulette.
After reading that Mr Pogg did good work in proving that there were problems in a casino's roulette (WIN A DAY) I saw the willingess to help other online players.
For this you have a big thanks from my part because I believe that online players sometimes find ourselves in very complicated situations and it is very difficult to prove that we are victims of fraud.
I also like the casino ratings in this site, since some casino's in your blacklist, in other sites they are awarded with high grades, 10, giving the idea to online players that they are reliable casinos, but it comes to paying, one finds himself with lots of rules and excuses to not be payed.
I also like the Pogg deposit guaranteed that gives me more security when it comes to online gambling.
My gambling experience is centered in land casinos, I play online the same slots I normally play in land casinos. (NOVOMATIC Slots, Aristocrat and IGT).
Keep on with the good work in helping online players when they need it since there are thousands of online casino and a small number of sites give a true assessment on a casino's reliability.
Thanks,
Wolf

Hey wolf77 - welcome to ThePOGG.com!

I really appreciate your compliments - it means a lot to me that people appreciate the work I'm doing.

I agree that many sites are not doing a good job for players when rating casinos. This is because they have things the wrong way round. They have traffic and sell it to the casino that's prepared to offer them the most for it (and will actually pay them). They see the casino as their customer.

I see things a bit differently - I see the players as my customers. If I don't have any players coming to my site it doesn't matter how much a casino offers me to send players, I don't have them to send whereas as long as I've got players coming here then there will always be a different casino to offer to them. There's no shortage of casinos to work with, but players are a resource so I choose to cater to the ones that make the difference! If players are happy with the help I give them, my reputation grows and they're more likely to come back. It's a real shame more website owners don't think about things this way.

If there's anything you need help with don't hesitate to post or drop me a PM.
