Announcement Club World Casinos removed from Accredited Casino section

    With a very heavy heart, I've had to remove the Club World Group of casinos from the accredited section at Casinomeister. They have been listed here since 2006 - and we have had some awesome times together.

    What happened?: there has been a recent major change of direction that this casino group has taken. The primary operator, who was instrumental in making this casino group one of the best casino groups ever, left the company several weeks ago. He had the final word in every player issue - every decision that this casino operation would make. We saw eye-to-eye on player philosophy, and he could always be counted on to do the right thing. Always. He was one of the best operators that I have ever known, and I've been in the business going on 19 years.

    He left the company several weeks ago, and since then there have been a number of changes that unfortunately disqualify them from accreditation. Firstly, they are no longer licensed as far as I can tell. They had a Kahnawake license up until 31 December, but that is no more. Licensing is a major issue for being accredited, and casinos must be licensed (preferably in the EU or UK) in order to be listed. At the moment, there is only a vague reference to an office in the Czech republic on the casinos' websites. There is also a reference to a obscure Corrales Group. There is no such thing - no website or anything to give it any substantiation. So that looks pretty bogus to me.

    This hurts personally. Club World has been a sponsor for the Meister Meeting since its conception in 2007. They have sponsored the Las Vegas casino dive crawl. They have churned out some awesome player experiences, won numerous Casinomeister Awards like Best US Facing Casino, Best Casino Group, Best Affiliate program - and Karolina, who is still there, Best Casino Manager two years in a row. So they were truly awesome, but unfortunately the linchpin has left the house. I really hope that he reappears in the future with a new brand somewhere. We know that if this occurs, we will have an awesome casino group at hand. I wish him well and good luck.

    And I wish the current Club World group total and much success. It is just unfortunate that the changes have given me no choice but wish them well, and send them on their way. Good luck to all.

    A shock indeed! I can feel your sadness here Bryan and now it seems one less decent outfit for N. America. If Karolina doesn't fancy toughing it out there I'm sure there will be a long list who would be willing to recruit her knowledge and services as two-time Manager Of The Year. At least that's one comfort. :thumbsup:

    This is a great shame indeed.

    I think the chap you are referring to was one of the first operator owners I ever met 10 years ago: he and his team have always been absolutely top-notch people to deal with, and it would be a tragedy if this spells the end of this excellent group :(

    By the way this Czech Address is also used by AffCash program, one with a pretty low rating that represents Slotter Casino and Reel Spin casino amongst others and is a relatively recent 2103 Cup-o-cocoa licensed lot. CWC is now Affiliate Edge.

    It's gets more interesting as the site www-dot-wishgirls.com is also registered at that exact same address which forwards to a page of sluts. This means this address is a firm of Domain Name registrants and/or mail-drop address.

    In fact an update, the group is now owned by a group from Cyprus, if you can read Czech a bit fine otherwise see this: (Corrales sro is an investment group)

    well hopefully Karolina goes somewhere else

    Its interesting to see how much a good owner leaving can effect a company entirely and quickly

    Examples are pokerstars and club gold. Remember how good club gold was until Dino left? Now its rogue pretty much lol

    even slotsmillion felt the effects after they lost their manager

    And HighNoon casino ( belonging to Club World group ) links to Jackpot Capital now????

    I closed all my ac. in the group long time ago because they made some heavy change that I didnt like.

    Cashback 50% If you didnt win with the first deposit was cut down, deposit $ 100 and only get $ 3 cashback or maybe its was only $ 50 deposit you get $ 3 I cant remember.

    So not so bad they left, there are other great RTG casinos that I enjoy.

    The inside story on these changes would be interesting...was CWC sold and if so for how much, just to start?

    But, yes - a great pity to see such a good online casino group taken off the CM accredited list, and the much respected former owner moving on.

    I guess the full story will surface in time.

    What a disappointment! CWC becoming unaccredited is one of the last things I expected would EVER happen. TBH I feel like someone just punched me in the gut. :(

    There was a temporary redirect made last night when I was deciding what to do. Affiliate edge has nothing to do with Jackpot Capital. Totally different businesses. The only thing that they share is a common software.

    I only think it was a great casino because karolina made it that way to be honest. The rest of the casino was very average. Sticky bonuses, lowest rtp setting I believe, very few withdraw options, cash advance fees for deposits and currency exchange charges for other countries not US

    But I admit its hard seeing such a casino with winning awards go down. Such is life sometimes. Did anyone ever think 32red would ever be overtaken and change? Not me! But then a beast like videoslot arose!

    Like I said earlier the Corrales Group appears to be owned by a Cyprus-based investment company, so the change in ownership may not necessarily be a slippery slope into the pit, dependent on their conduct in the near future. This may explain why the Canadian license has gone, as the new owners would need to apply for one separately, as all they seem to have now is the useless Cup-o-cocoa one. The Corrales Group is likely a new business name created solely for ownership of these casinos and their operations. I doubt they'd want to devalue a business they just purchased by having it behave badly. If they did their due diligence about what they have spent their money on, they'd know decent licensing and reputation is an integral part of it. Maybe they'll even appear on here eventually to introduce themselves? Who knows...
