Casinomeister's Verdict

Bryans Verdict
Rogue Casino

Backstabbers. If a company is willing to screw over its advertising partners – some of whom had been working with this group for over a decade – there is no guarantee it won’t do the same with its players.

These guys are frauds and lack all sense of ethics. Avoid this casino at all costs – there are many better alternatives to choose from.

Video Review

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 player 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

Once one of the top online casinos featured here at Casinomeister, Club World Casino had, what we’d call, the fall from grace. Indeed, back in the day, they won the “Casino of the Year” award here at Casinomeister – but that was then, and this is now – and several years ago, Club World Casino started to rip off their business partners – including us – and they committed clear and illegal acts of fraud – not the place you want to be spending your own hard-earned cash.

Indeed, while writing this Club World Casino review, we noticed hundreds of player complaints at other review websites – hundreds of players being denied their winnings, having their accounts closed for no apparent reason – and it appears as though this once superb online casino has completely faded into the abyss, operating illegally, and fleecing both their partners and players out of earnings/winnings.

Club World Casino is ROGUED. Do NOT sign-up at this casino. You are likely to experience problems and may not be paid winnings. We’re keeping this Club World Casino review up and live to highlight the site’s illegal behaviour and prevent new players from signing up at their website. Do Not Join Club World Casino.

Bonuses and Promotions

Club World Casino does all they can to entice new players into joining; of course, when there’s a chance you may not even bother to pay your players their winnings, why not offer the most generous welcome bonus around – it doesn’t hurt, right? Well, that appears to be the approach that Club World Casino is taking, and while their bonuses and promotions may look attractive, remember; this casino is rogued, and for good reason.

Welcome Offer

The main welcome bonus offer at Club World Casino is a 300% matched deposit bonus up to $3,000 + a $75 free chip if you make a deposit using Bitcoin. (Are the alarm bells starting to ring yet?)

To claim the first of the two deposit bonuses, you need to use the code “BIGSLOT”, while the second of the two casino bonuses requires no bonus code. Like most welcome bonuses, the main bonus offer at Club World Casino come with wagering requirements of 50X, very high and likely unachievable for most players.

Actually, completing the wagering requirement restrictions can be tough, too, as many games are excluded from being played with bonus funds – so here’s just another reason to avoid this clip-shot joint at all costs. The terms and conditions are pretty strict – so if for any reason you do play at this rogue casino, make sure you read the terms and conditions to the tee.

<WELCOME OFFER BOX>

No-Deposit & Free Spins Offers

(Thankfully), at the time of writing, we couldn’t find any no-deposit bonuses or free spins bonuses offered at Club World Casino. This is a positive for us – as it means there’s less chance of unwitting players joining the site and indivertibly getting ripped off.

VIP and Loyalty Programs

Club World Casino offers one of the blandest, cookie-cutter loyalty programs we’ve ever seen, and you simply earn 1 comp point for every unit of currency you wager. Once you’ve accumulated enough, you can exchange your comp point holdings for a cash bonus; it’s boring, bland, and there doesn’t appear to be any VIP program for high-rollers either.

Banking and Payment Options

While writing this Club World Casino review, we wanted to look at the banking options available – more out of curiosity over anything else; we were curious how Club World Casino can keep making deposits while acting, clearly, illegally.

The site allows players to make deposits and withdrawals using Wire Transfer, Instant Wire Transfer, Skrill (MoneyBookers), Bank Transfer, Neteller, Interac and ecoPayz. Many of these payment methods won’t be available due to restricted countries.

The casino claims that all deposits are credited to your account immediately. However, we have read reports of it taking several days before real money funds are actually added to players’ balances. As said, there’s plenty of better places to play.

Withdrawal Speed

In the past, Club World Casino used to be a solid online casino – and they were well-known for fast cashouts. Today, it’s a different story. If they even do process your withdrawal, it’s likely to take weeks – and they’ll try and stall it at every corner in the hopes that you reverse your withdrawal and end up playing it all back. Again – avoid this online gambling clip-joint at all costs.

Website Experience and Features

Desktop and Mobile Gaming

Writing this review, Club World Casino showed us that they simply haven’t adapted to the world of mobile gaming. Their casino is still offered in a downloadable client – and while there’s nothing inherently wrong with this, it does show they’re lagging behind the times.

Technically, you can play at Club World Casino from mobile devices – but you won’t find a huge range of games at the mobile-optimized version of Club World Casino. Club World Casino really hasn’t adapted – despite advertising themselves as offering a mobile casino – and we found the mobile casino to be slow, lag-prone and relatively difficult to use and navigate.

KYC

With a gambling license from Curacao (Netherlands Antilles), Club World Casino should, by the terms of their license, carry out player verification checks; these checks are enforced by operators – like the UK and Isle of Man regulators – to ensure that players are above the age of 18, and so that the casino knows who is making a deposit and playing at their website.

Unfortunately, Club World Casino only ever seems to carry our KYC checks when it comes to withdrawals – and many players seem to hint towards the site using KYC checks as a way of stalling withdrawals; it makes sense. When they request ID and documents from you, they know it’s going to take you a while to get them all together, photograph them and upload them – and they’re hoping that during this time, you end up reversing your withdrawal and playing it back.

It’s shady at best – and it’s yet another valid reason why you should never even think about playing at this rogued casino yourself.

Responsible Gaming

While we were writing this review, Club World Casino tried to prove they care – and that they take responsible gambling seriously – but a bit of digging showed it’s not quite as it seems. Here’s what they say on their responsible gambling page:

“Here at Club World, we strive to create and maintain a safe gambling environment to help those with problematic gambling habits. We will happily exclude players from all promotions, emails, and any other communication. We can also set up deposit limits to your account on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.”

It sounds fair enough, right? Except they fail to mention you can’t set up any of these limits yourself – so if you’re a problem gambler, trying to use the self-exclusion function, you’ll have to manually reach out to the customer support team, during which you’re free to continue to play – and lose. Not good, and yet another sign that Club World are lightyears behind reputable operators out there.

About the Team and History

Club World first opened its doors in 2005, and initially, they were seen as a reliable and trustworthy site. You’ll see us talking about this more in the next section of this review. The site runs exclusively on RTG software and is primarily focused on North American markets.

Despite claims that they’re licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission – and even saying they’re regulated in the Isle of Man – the only online gaming license Club World holds is from Curacao – part of the Netherlands Antilles. There have been reports that they operate within the Russian Federation and Costa Rica, Costa Rica of which is renowned for housing shady, dodgy iGaming sites.

Complaints and Track Record

This once awesome site of high repute fell from grace after the operator left and with him, all of his key employees. The remaining two partners, who had really nothing to do with the casino operations since the beginning, decided to bring in persons connected to the rogue casino operation Affpower. They began to commit fraud against their advertising partners.

The casino group began to detag and/or reduce the revenue share with their affiliates – all done without warning and without notice. This, in our opinion, is criminal fraud, and any affiliate (which at press time 18 March 2017 includes just about all of them) who notices these changes needs to have this addressed immediately.

This is such a shame as many affiliates had worked with this casino group for over a decade – and as you can see from their awards, they had their stuff together here at Casinomeister at one point. Players loved the comp points scheme – but when Affpower got involved, everything went down the plughole, and they’ve yet to show any signs of attempting to right their wrongs.

Customer Support at Club World Casinos

Club World is more than happy to talk to potential new players thinking of joining up, and they offer live chat, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The live chat team will talk to you about comp points, how comp points work, which bonus promotions you can claim and how to sign-up – but when it comes to having problems after you’ve deposited – or after you’ve tried to make a withdrawal – expect the customer support team to all-but disappear.

Their customer support facility may look professional – but be under no illusions; Club World is NOT a legitimate gambling website, and they are ROGUED here at Casinomeister.

Games & Software

Providers

Club World Casino runs on Real Time Gaming software to find games from any other software providers. The casino software can be used in instant play (play from within your internet browser), and they also offer a downloadable desktop client. Instant play is the preferred way of playing today, however.

Club World Casino offers a range of table games, video poker, speciality games, slots, keno and scratch cards. The games Club World Casino offers, however, are all from Real Time Gaming, as mentioned – so don’t expect to see much variety.

Slots

Like most online casinos, Club World Casino places quite a lot of emphasis on video slots, and they claim to offer hundreds of slots. While true, you must remember that all of the games at Club World Casino are from Real Time Gaming – severely limiting your ability to play anything else.

Aztec’s Millions is one of the most popular RTG slots – and, to be fair to RTG, they’re not a bad game developer at all – they make great games! It’s just a shame that they’re associated with the likes of the Club World Group and Club World Casinos, as, other than this, they do actually make solid games.

World Casino Club offers other slots from RTG, including 5 Wishes, Aladdin’s Wishes, Asgard, Ancient Gods and Eagle Shadow Fist.

Live Casino

Club World Casino doesn’t offer any live dealer games – there’s no live gaming available. So, if you needed another reason not to join this rogue casino – well, here you go – even live dealer casino software providers won’t touch the site!

Roulette & Blackjack

Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette – you’ll find limited offerings at Club World Casino. However, their selection of casino table games is much smaller than what we typically expect to see from a reputable online casino. There are just a few Roulette variations available, including European Roulette, American Roulette and French Roulette.

The blackjack offering is equally uninspiring, with just a few games available like Blackjack, Blackjack Perfect Pairs and European Blackjack. It’s a poor selection of casino table games – yet another reason not to join this rogue casino.

Table Games and Video Poker

Club World Casino offers a selection of other casino table games, slots, keno and scratch cards, alongside a decent selection of video poker machines. Several casino table games can be found, including Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker Deluxe, Let ’em Ride, Let em Ride Deluxe, Bonus Bingo, Casino Poker, Three Card Poker, Sic Bo, VIP Sic Bo, Red Dog, Red Dog VIP and Craps.

When it comes to video poker, most machines come in multiple variations; this includes Jacks or Better, Jacks or Better Bonus Poker, Jacks or Better Multi-Hand, Deuces Wild, Deuces Wild Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild Multi-Hand, Joker Poker, Deluxe Bonus Poker and Face Up 21 Poker Bonus and Joker Poker Multi-Hand.

A quick side note – are you European? Slot, poker, casino table games – they’re all off-limits, and most European countries are restricted countries at Casino Club World.

Progressive Jackpots

Progressive jackpots are a common sight at online casinos today, and more jackpot slots than ever before are now available to players at casinos online. There’s a minimal selection of progressive jackpot slots at Club World Casino, including Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold, Shopping Spree II, Megasaur and Spirit of the Inca.

Even this is a disappointing selection of jackpot slots; usually, progressive jackpot slots are everywhere – with decent jackpots – but the slots at Club World Casino are pretty tame, and you won’t find any slots offering multi-million-dollar payouts like you would at other casinos.

The progressive jackpot games at Club World Casino – and all Club World Group sites – can be found under the “Progressives” tab on the game navigation menu on the left-hand side of the page.
