The Awesome Transcript

This week marked a sad week in i-gaming history. An award winning casino group – the Club World Group – has fallen into the infamous rogue pit. And when I mean fall – I mean in the most glorious sense of falling. I do not believe that they will ever claw their way back out. This is bad – I mean really bad.

Club World casinos have had a turbulent last few months. Their operator/owner was pushed out of the business by his so called partners – and his business, the business that he had built up for over a decade just went to hell in a hand basket. Why you may ask? Well it had a lot to do with that the current business owners didn’t have a clue on how to run the casino group nor its affiliate program, Affiliate edge.

Affiliate edge was an award winning affiliate program that was staffed by the best affiliate managers in the business.
So anyway, imagine that you are a business owner – you have just been placed in charge of a multi million dollar business, and you don’t have a clue on how to run it. What are you going to do? Well you’re going to bring in some trustworthy advisors to help you out. That would be a smart move. Did the owners of this casino group do this?

Actually, they did the polar opposite. They brought in a couple of the most scam laden persons imaginable. People who are directly connected with Affpower – a casino group that was caught red handed using fake games this last year. And everybody knows about this. This has been common public knowledge for nearly a year now. Affpower – an Israeli run company that is really the crap hole of this industry. I have no idea why the operators of Club World decided to bring these guys in – but they did.

And these affpower guys – I could name names – but I won’t for now, but many of you in the industry know who I am talking about, they decided to pull a scam over on Affiliate edge’s affiliate partners – the webmasters who had been promoting the club world casinos for years. These guys began to remove the revenue earned from these webmasters. This is fraud – and there are scores of webmasters at this very moment who are comparing stats with one another and I can pretty much promise you, they will be taking action on this. Fraud is fraud.

As soon as the key employees found out about this fraud – they gave notice. They gave notice without a backup – or any jobs lined up – putting their family lives and livelihoods in jeopardy. This is what I mean as being a really bad situation. The worst event that has hit the online gambling industry for years.
And you the players will be affected. If you are a member of this casino group, there is no guarantee that you will be treated fairly. This casino group is being accused of blatant fraud, and those managers that were taking care of your account are no longer there. There are other casinos to choose from. Play smart and not with Club World. You have no idea how long this casino group will remain as a viable company.

Overview

First Impression

This was an award winning awsomely run casino. Unfortunately there was a hostile takeover of the casino operations. These new inexperienced operators brought in the most unscrupulous gang of dubious folk to assist. When you lie with the dogs you get fleas.

Poor operators had no idea (or maybe they did) of the dubiousness of these “consultants”. These blokes were connected to Affpower, an award winning casino group – Worst Casino Group of the year 2016 – they were caught red-handed stealing software from NetEnt. It’s public knowledge that these guys are crooks.

So the new operators brought these people on and everything went pear-shaped. The affiliate program suddenly stated “shaving” the revenue from their advertising partners – which is simply fraud. The main staff of Buzzluck casino bailed – well positioned people like the affiliate manager and casino manager – they left the company without any plan for new employment putting their families and livelihoods at risk. They left the company when they sensed this nefarious activity.

Once an upstanding award winning enterprise, Buzzluck along with its brethren went spiral down like a flaming barrel of monkeys. RIP Buzzluck.

Games & Software

Buzzluck Casinos runs Nuworks software – which is just RTG relabeled. Really a waste of time and effort to produce but there you have it.

We could talk about RTG and you wouldn’t really tell the difference. It’s a far cry from the software packages that Europeans are accustomed to: WMS, NetEnt, Playtech, Microgaming, etc. , but it’s not that bad.

In fact I rather enjoy some of the older RTG slots. They remind me of the old days of online casinos – and the fact that we didn’t have many software providers to choose from. Unfortunately, Nuworks is primarily focused on the US player – European players probably won’t bother with the games too much.

But one thing for sure, there have not been any complaints about the fairness of the games. Nuworks have been around for quite a few years, and so far so good. I would not hesitate to play at one of these casinos – but I would not choose Buzzluck since their operators are having issues with their moral compasses.

Bryan's Verdict

This is an Nuworks powered casino that had an awesome reputation – complaints were nearly zero until their marketing partners got wind that Buzzluck and its brethren were making dodgy changes to their accounts.

I would avoid this casino at all costs.
