Feedback on new site please

13 replies • Last post

Hi there, after a bit of drama we have finally released our new look site. We hope you like it! I'll post a run-down of what exactly is new tomorrow after we see that everything is working well (fingers crossed).

There are still a few minor bugs here and there that we are working on fixing.

If you find a bug or run into something you can't understand just post it here and we'll look into it asap.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I'm still getting used to it, but the new look is great! It really surprised me when I first saw it this morning, but I can already manage to find my way around easily. Nice work, guys! Smile

Thanks for the kind words. All seems to be pretty smooth which is good. We didn't really change much under the hood, it's more of a makeover. But sometimes these things can turn ugly!

So here is a list of things off the top of my head that we did:

  • New graphics / colour scheme.
  • Re-arranged homepage with more bonus, jackpot and forum info.
  • "Megamenus" at the top of the page to make things easier to find and reduce the drop down length.
  • New improved layout for reviews, free games, and jackpot pages.
  • Increased free games size from 640x480 to 800x600 because bigger is better!
  • Better free games picker that lets you navigate through the whole list of games (on home and game pages).
  • Forum topics are now full page width to better accommodate big images and those of you with verbal diarrhoea. (Just kidding ;) ... I can talk)

And a few things that are still on the way:

  • Casino Listings shop so you can spend those CLChips you earn by posting to the site.
  • Free games from RTG, Microgaming and more.
  • Many more casino reviews.
  • Updated game guides.

Known issues:

  • On Internet Explorer version 6 some of the site and graphics may not look perfect. It has gotten to the stage where fixing a site to work around all the bugs in old IE6 is more time and trouble than it is worth. If you are still using it, even Microsoft says you should upgrade! (the current version is IE8 with 9 on the way soon)

Yay, prizes and chips! lol! So we will earn chips just for posting and be able to spend on items in the store? That sounds great!

Ed, the site looks great! I even tried to sign on during construction, then couldn't wait to sign in the next day to see it up "for real."

My name for the "verbal diarhea," online is "blabberfingers," and I typically have a back case of those, lol.

Love the forum and the site. I have never played the free games, but I intend to check them out soon.

Oh yes, see just under your name of the left it shows your number of posts and also CLchips. You earn them for posting and we're working on a little shop for the site where you can spend them on prizes and stuff. We're testing it now. Should be a few more days.

Haven't checked in here for a while and I just did today and got a nice surprise. Nice job guys, the site looks fantastic.

I especially like the big screen free games, it looks better than some casino sites I've seen!

The shop idea sounds great. What kind of prizes are you going to offer?

Your site looks great and it is very easy to find any info.
Could you consider including safe sites for Canadians too!
Allmy best!

You know, you're the 2nd person who has asked for that and its definitely something we want to do - not just Canadians but a whole bunch of countries. It will take a bit of time though because we need to go to each and every casino and read through their T&Cs and work out which countries they accept or ban players from, and for other countries which languages they accept.

I know this is an old thread but just thought I would state for the record that after months of work recording which casinos accept, ban, or block players from various different countries, we now have the system in place.

The first time you browse the site we detect your country automatically. You can see if it is correct by looking up to the top right of every page where it shows a flag. You can mouse over that flag if you want to change your country and/or currency settings.

What happens now is that when you view a review of a casino we show a message at the top that tells you immediately if the casino accepts players from your country (see the screenshots below). We also filter our bonus lists to exclude bonuses that you cannot claim if your country is not allowed.

All in all we are showing the most relevant and appropriate information to everyone now, not just Americans vs non-Americans like we used to. And we've also created a giant headache for ourselves in trying to keep that information up to date as casinos change it all the time! But more on that later...
