The popular online gambling information site Casinomeister is currently running a multi-vote player poll to determine what attracts punters to a new online casino site - a question that is certainly of interest to any operator. Thus far the poll has received an enthusiastic response, with players - mainly experienced online gamblers - casting their votes for a range of possible attractions that are individually appealing to them.
The frustration of US players denied access to many internet gambling websites by operators with a wary eye on US enforcement action is evident in some of the reactions to the poll.
As InfoPowa went to press at the weekend, the poll looked like this:
59.57% placed importance on information from reliable forums;
44.68% favour a good signup matchplay bonus;
29.79% like a No-Deposit signup bonus;
23.40% are influenced by the software platform in use;
21.28% are attracted by a particular game they want to play on;
17.02% lean toward a 25/30/50/x Free Spins offer;
14.89% had unspecified preferences not covered in the poll;
6.38% liked the idea of a defined time or value freeplay promotion.
The good news for newbie operators or companies launching fresh sites is that 31.91% of voters said they frequently try out new internet casinos, although 27.66% were more cautious and said they rarely gave new casinos their money.
