Well it’s finally here – after 9 very long months of hard work the new design for ThePOGG.com has finally gone live today! Please take the time to check it out and let us know what you think.
Here are some of the new features to be found on site over and above the visual change;
News and Promotions
Our brand new News and Promotions section allows us to post relevant information direct to the casino review, so it’s always up-to-date with all the information players need and will automatically generate alerts in several locations across the site, including the homepage.
This new system also allows us to provide Affiliate Managers with Usernames and Passwords so that they can access to the promotions section of their own review. This allows AMs to get their promotions onto the front page of the site faster than at any other affiliate site and ensures that our visitors are always seeing the most up-to-date information. If you’re and Affiliate Manager interested in gaining access to this unique feature please get in contact with us at [email protected]. Please be aware that as a precautionary measure to ensure that only the best casinos are allowed to generate their own content, for any AM to be considered for access to our posting system their associated casino must have an overall rating of 7/10 or better.
Are casino reviews are now rated by our specialised rating system which incorporates a rating for each casino for Trustworthiness, Payout Speed, Customer Service, Software, Bonuses, Slot RTP information, Comp Points and Licensing which are then used to come up with an overall rating that decides the casinos position all over the site.
Alongside this we’ve now included a video review for every casino listed on the site with a basic walk through of signing up to the casino, the banking system, bonuses on offer, comp points and licensing.
Our slots reviews have been upgraded to include videos of each slots game and a free version of the game where possible.
We’ve also included house edge information (sometimes known as Return to Player or RTP) for nearly 800 slots games with figures for each venue that we know of referenced at the top of the review. This allow players to quickly and easily compare the price of playing a game at different casino and provides security in the validity of these figures in the cross referencing of sources.
Our new Dispute Mediation process provides a private forum on neutral ground where the disgruntled player and casino rep can discuss whatever problems have arisen. This conversation can carry on as long as needed and once the site admin have enough information a ruling of ‘Resolved’, ‘Found for the Player’, ‘Found for the Casino’ or ‘Unresolved’ will be added to the complaint before it is published as a reference for other players. This process ensures that casinos can provide evidence to back up claims of players breaking rules without that evidence being posted on public forums (only the site admin will ever see it) and protects them from unsubstantiated claims from players who have broken the rule by ensuring that a conclusion is reached before the players claims are publicised. At the same time, where a casino cannot or will not provide evidence to support their claims of rule breaking a ruling for the player is very likely.
That’s right! ThePOGG.com has its very own complete free – soon to be – site branded casino platform. This allows players to get the full casino experience before they have to sign-up anywhere, with a full package of table games, slots games, video poker and keno. Look out for us running site exclusive promotions that tie in with the free casino in the near future!
MIT Card Counter
The site will also be featuring articles written by Aramon. Aramon has been a professional offline advantage player for nearly 20 years. They trained with and lead one of the offshoots of MIT card counting teams made famous by Ben Mezrich’s ‘Bringing Down the House’ and ‘Busting Vegas’ and the film ’21’ starring Kevin Spacey, though they never featured in either book and since that point have specialised in highly advanced techniques and strategies that few other players in the world have ever mastered.
Aramon will be contributing articles about their playing experiences over the years alongside providing ‘How to’ guides to various offline advantage play methods. Having played with Aramon on many occasions myself, I can say for sure that these articles are not to be missed.
Alongside being a exceptionally skilled advantage player Aramon is also a knowledgeable and experienced sports bettor. They will providing weekly picks every week for the duration of the NFL season. Follow along for some fun – we’ll be keeping track of Aramon’s record over the season to see how they do.
Obviously we’re really excited about the launch of the new site and are looking forward to all of you joining us in the fun. All comments and feedback would be greatly appreciated, so please pop on to the message board and let us know what you think.
Before I finish this off, there are certain people that I really need to thank for their help and input in the design and implementation of this huge project;
First and foremost I’d like to thank John Wright from gaffg.com. After our discussion at LAC this year, John got on board to help with the entire design process. His help has been absolutely invaluable and I can say without any doubt that the site would not look as good or work as well as it does today without his help.
Kay Schaefer – Kay’s advice and support on the SEO aspects of the site – in the past and on into the future – has made a huge difference and helped develop what was an SEO newbie into someone with confidence in the direction and success of this site.
Igor and Filip Salindrija and the team at Desigui (the team that run AskGamblers.com) were responsible for the fantastic logo and template designs and they generally made the site look fantastic!
And finally Pradeep Kumar and the team from Synaptic Consulting who did all of the work on the backend of the site. Without their diligence and tireless work ethic, ThePOGG.com would simply be too big a project to be managed by a small team.
