Like every previous year, in 2021, you make for an essential part of the entire process. In this stage, you nominate your favourite online casinos and video slots, choosing them to enter the race and compete for the “best of the best” status.

Stay with us for more details –

The Nomination Phase and Things You Should Know

Although there is no doubt the majority of you (maybe even all of you) know the nomination process inside out, here’s a little reminder just to be sure.

To nominate your favourite candidates, you can do so in the following categories:

  • Best Casino 2020
  • Best New Casino 2020
  • Best New Slot 2020

Each category lists potential future winners and you, as AskGamblers players, have the exclusive privilege to select and nominate.

Look for your favourite candidates in our directory and click on the “Nominate” button on the casino review or slot review page. That’s all!

The nomination period starts today, on 6 April 2021 and ends on 16 May 2021, allowing the nomination of just one candidate per category.
In that sense, a bit over two months should be just enough time for you to carefully decide on who will be the lucky one to carry your nomination! We know you’ll choose well, you always do.

Every single online casino on the AskGamblers website is up for the Awards nomination, but only the top 10 nominees will be up for voting. Remember: To nominate your candidates, you must be signed in to your AskGamblers account.

As soon as the nomination phase ends, the voting phase begins, details of which you will be promptly informed of.

AskGamblers Awards Celebration

Due to the current circumstances, AskGamblers Awards Night 2021 will be held virtually and live-streamed from Belgrade, Serbia. The Awards are scheduled for 17 June 2021. All other stages of the Awards remain the same.

Leading affiliate compounds their commitment to responsible gambling and social responsibilities.

Slots Temple, the forward-thinking iGaming affiliate has completed the rigorous application process to seal their membership into RAiG (Responsible Affiliates in Gambling), the independent body helping to raise standards in the affiliate sector.

Following the successful navigation of the membership process and meeting all the entry criteria, including a third-party social responsibility audit, Slots Temple have been inducted into the RAiG association, demonstrating their pledge to providing the safest gaming environment for their users.

Commenting on the application, Fraser Linkleter, CMO of Slots Temple, said: “It is essential in today’s market that affiliates are as professional and trusting to players as casino operators. Being part of RAiG is a big step for Slots Temple to evidence our commitment to our users and build trust in the brand.

“The process itself is stringent to say the least and quite rightly so. Delving deep into an affiliate’s operation, how we conduct ourselves, how our staff are trained in responsible gambling, how our ongoing processes have been set in place and actioned, and most importantly, how we present ourselves to protect the public.”

This milestone for Slots Temple has much wider and positive implications, adding extra validity to their recently announced free to enter Tournaments and aiding player confidence, while also building the affiliates overall business value.

Linkleter continued: “Going through this process means we are perfectly positioned for future license applications. Our site and business operations are subsequently in a better place following the development work undertaken after the feedback and recommendations received during the audit procedure. This work will continue and stands us in good stead for our expansions plans.”

Set up in 2019, RAiG aims to foster wider initiatives in the UK affiliate marketing sector to promote social responsibility and help create a safer gambling environment. Slots Temple now join the prodigious list of accredited associates including founding member Better Collective, Oddschecker and Racing Post.

Cian Nugent, Chairman of RAiG, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Slots Temple as our newest member and are looking forward to working with them to shape the future of compliance in the affiliate market.

“In such a fast-moving industry it is of the upmost importance to remember the end-user, the players, and to promote best practices throughout the industry to protect the consumer. This starts with the operators and the affiliate operators, so building our community of members will help to establish the trust which is essential to our philosophy.”

Linkleter concluded: “Slots Temple are extremely proud to have been accepted as a member of RAiG and are excited to now have a voice and play a key role in this organisation and in the future of the iGaming affiliate sector.”

Want to increase your FTDs? Mr-Gamble analyzed over 600 casinos and 200,000 clicks. Here’s how you can turn clicks into conversions.

Want to increase your FTDs? Mr-Gamble analyzed over 600 casinos and 200,000 clicks. Here’s how you can turn clicks into conversions.
Reading Time: 2 minutes


First-time deposit (FTD) conversion is a commonly used customer acquisition metric in the iGaming industry. It is calculated by dividing the number of unique visitors to a site by the number of first-time deposits. The click-to-conversion rate gives a strong indication of the effectiveness of a casino’s CRM processes. Hence, it is one of the most important metrics for operators to follow.

We analyzed over 600 casinos and 200,000 clicks to determine how operators can increase their FTDs. Here are six tips that you can implement immediately to increase your conversions.

Note: We only included casinos with 100+ clicks in our analysis to increase the power of our study.

  1. Banking options

Reducing friction during the registration and deposit process is one way operators can substantially increase their FTDs. We noticed that the easier and faster the process is, the more willing players are to deposit money to the casino.

If you want to increase your FTDs by up to 14%, offering fast payment methods like Trustly and Skrill is a great way to start. In addition, operators should also support popular local banking options, which vary between countries.

  1. Bonuses

It’s no secret that players love casino bonuses. The bigger and better the bonus is (or the more free spins are included), the more eager players are to sign up to the casino to make their first deposit.

Of course, operators should also think about what makes business sense to them, but casino bonuses have by far the biggest impact on FTDs. We have noticed that the number of FTDs per click can increase by up to 45% when casinos offer attractive bonuses.

  1. Bonus terms

Players are far savvier about bonuses and bonus terms in 2021 than they were in the past. Nowadays, players know to look for the Terms and Conditions of the bonus to distinguish great bonuses from bad ones. That’s why we recommend offering low wagering or even no wagering bonuses to increase FTDs by up to 22%.

Besides lowering the wagering requirement, operators should offer a wider range of games to their customers. Many players aren’t interested in depositing if they can’t play their favourite games with a bonus. It’s also worth noting that some players don’t want to claim a bonus if they can’t choose their bet size. When casinos remove betting limits, we see a substantial increase in conversions consistently.

  1. Withdrawal time

Withdrawal time is another factor that impacts FTDs. The modern player wants to cash out their winnings as fast they can, and many players shun casinos with longer withdrawal times. We have seen that shorter withdrawal times can increase FTDs by up to 10% from analyzing hundreds of casinos.

  1. Minimum deposits

Operators need to lower the barriers of entry for players. We repeatedly see a significantly better click to FTD rate when casinos allow players to deposit as little as £1 to £5 or the equivalent amount in dollars or euros. Offering low minimum deposit options alone can increase FTDs by up to 18%.

  1. Game selection

Unfortunately, many operators underestimate the impact the game selection has on conversions. Many players have their favourite casino games and slots, and if they don’t see them featured in a casino, they are reluctant to make a deposit. As casinos add popular game providers and casino games to their game portfolios, we consistently see an increase in the number of FTDs (up to 16%).

That concludes our study. We hope that this analysis gave some food for thought for operators and affiliates alike!
