Club World Casino Review for 2022
This was an interesting review to write. Here’s why:
- I checked Club World’s promotions – everything looked good.
- I checked out their games – everything looked good.
- I checked out the banking options – they’re okay.
- I checked out the reputation – oooooooh, that’s going to leave a mark.
This review went from good to bad really fast, and it was a bummer to ultimately have to recommend that you don’t create an account here.
I point this out now so to save you the time and hassle from reading this review. Your time is better spent finding an alternative in our review section.
However, if you want to know why we can’t recommend Club World Casino – and, ultimately see what you’re missing out on – then read the review below, where we lay it all out for you.
Who is Club World? How long have they been in business?
Club World used to be part of the Club World Group. They got their start in 2005, which means they’ve been in business for about 12-13 years.
However, according to CasinoListings.com, the Club World Group
It sounds like who now owns/operates the casino is receiving business advice from the rogue group, AffPower.
For what it’s worth, Club World Casino is licensed and regulated by the Government of Curacao.
How is their reputation? What do others think of them?
It wasn’t long ago that their reputation was – from what I can tell – stellar. I’m looking at Casinomesiter.com now, and they had given Club World multiple awards.
- Best Casino – 2008, 2009, 2014
- Best Casino Group – 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014
- Best New Casino – 2006
- Best Affiliate Program – 2011
I also read somewhere that they were once endorsed by the Wizard of Odds, too.
But all that has changed now. Let me give you an idea of how much things have changed. Here are the current ratings on the sites we use for reference:
- Casinomeister.com – 1/10 / Rogue
- CasinoListings.com – 4/10 / Blacklisted
- WizardOfOdds.com – Not endorsed
- ThePogg.com – Blacklisted
- VegasSlotsOnline.com – Blacklisted
From what I understand, the network of casinos that Club World is part of was acquired by a new management group, who is now taking advice from the AffPower Group – apparently one of the most rogue casino operations online.
A few things AffPower is known for doing includes:
- De-tagging players from affiliate accounts (theft).
- Running fake NetEnt games.
- Frequent payment delays.
- Paying hackers/spammers to illegally insert ads for their casinos into thousands of websites and blogs.
The link above does a pretty good job at explaining the legal battle, as well as the shenanigans the advising company who’s now helping Club World is known for. You can see more in the Casinomeister.com thread, including where Casinomeister.com posted a screenshot of Club World removing their ‘awards’ – but, funny enough, they leave the Wizard Of Odds endorsement, which no longer exists.
Who is prohibited from playing at Club World Casino?
Club World Casino doesn’t accept players from the following:
- Costa Rica
- Russian Federation
- United Kingdom
How do you contact Club World?
You can contact Club World using:
What payment methods does Club World accept?
Here are the details that cover what payment methods you can use, fees, limits, etc.
It’s great to see bitcoin as an option. Though it’d be nice if it had higher limits (as well as the rest of the banking options). $1,000 isn’t a lot of money for some people.
How can you cash out your winnings?
Your options include:
|Bank Transfer||$200.00||$5,001.00||5 Days|
|Wire Transfer||$300.00||$5,001.00||5 Days|
|Courier Cheque||$200.00||$2,500.00||4 Days|
The max you can cash out per week is $5,000. All cash out limits suck, but this is higher than what you’ll find at other casinos. It looks like (network) progressive jackpots are excluded, but their terms don’t say if these are paid in full, or simply paid in larger installments.
What promotions can you claim?
There are several offers to claim. Let’s start with the welcome bonuses.
Many, if not all their offers use coupon codes. You’ll want to make sure to get the code for the offer you want to use BEFORE you make a deposit, as you’ll need to enter it during the payment process.
There are two offers you can choose from – one for slots players, and the other for table games. The slots offer is a 300% match bonus up to $3,000. Deposit $1,000 and you can get the entire amount.
The table games offer is a 100% match bonus up to $1,000. Deposit $1,000 and you’ll have $2,000 total to play with.
There are a few additional offers outside the welcome bonus. It looks like they have one offer for everyday of the week. Let’s look at those now.
- Monday Bonus – This is a 65% match bonus that you can use for all games. They post no limit on their promos page, or in their terms and conditions. They do say you can use this offer 5x during the promotion period (Mondays), though.
- Tuesday Bonus – This is a 77% match bonus up to $777. You can claim this offer 7 times during the promotion period. It can only be used for playing slots.
- Wednesday Bonus – This is a 55% match bonus for slots. You’ll also get $5 in free spins (10*$0.50). You can use the match bonus to play slots, keno and scratch cards. This offer is available 3x during the promotion period.
- Thursday Bonus – Get a 60% match bonus for slots, keno and scratch card games. You can use this offer 4x. You’ll also get a $25 bonus chip.
- Friday Bonus – This is a 77% match bonus that you can use for all games. You can claim this bonus 3x during the promotion period.
- Weekend Bonus – This is a 70% match bonus that you can use for all games. On top of that you’ll get 10% cash back. There is NO LIMIT to how many times you can use the match bonus over the weekend. The max you can receive from each bonus is $1,000 and the most you can receive in cashback is 10x your bonus amount, or $10,000.
That’s it for the offers on their promotions page. They don’t have a VIP program, though they do have an unadvertised comp points program – as nearly all Real Time Gaming casinos do.
The default rate for earning points is 1 comp point per 10 (currency) units you bet. And every 100 points can be converted to 1 unit in the currency you’re playing in.
Nothing terribly exciting there – especially compared to the daily offers mentioned above – but, hey, it’s better than nothing.
What’s the catch?
It depends on the offer. For example:
The slots welcome bonus has a 30x playthrough. The bonus can only be used on slots, keno and scratch games.
The table games welcome bonus has a 30x rollover. Baccarat, craps, roulette and sic bo are excluded. Other games will be weighted per Club World’s terms, and are as follows:
- Slots, Video Slots, Keno and Scratch Cards - 1.00
- Roulette - 0.40
- Casino Poker Games - 0.25
- Video Poker - 0.20
- 21 Games, Blackjack, Baccarat, War - 0.10
- Craps, Sic Bo - 0.10
To put this into perspective – if you want to play blackjack while clearing this offer, every bet will count 10% of a slot bet. This means you’ll need to wager 10x the default playthrough (10*.10) to fulfill the offer. For a blackjack player, this would mean the playthrough would be 300x.
Is that worthwhile? Only you can decide that. But make sure you do the math and really consider if the bonus is worthwhile before you claim it.
Other than the above, a few other important terms to think about include:
- The playthrough on all non-deposit bonuses is 5x the bonus amount (unless specified otherwise).
- Winnings from slot tournaments need to be wagered 50x before you can cash out.
- There is no max cash out amount/restrictions on the welcome offers.
- The min deposit for any offer is $35.
- Bonus money cannot be cashed out – you can only cash out your winnings.
- Most, if not all the daily bonuses mentioned above have a 25x default rollover.
- Cashback from the weekend offer above has a 2x playthrough before you can cash it out.
Pretty standard stuff. Something I did NOT see are any limits on what you can bet per round or spin, which is pretty cool. Other than that, the 30x playthrough is less than the average I’ve seen, which is also great.
What software companies does Club World work with?
They work with Real Time Gaming. This means you’ll get to play anywhere from 120-150+ casino games depending on whether you download their software or play in their instant play (browser) casino.

There’s nothing mind-blowing about the games they offer. But I want to highlight the few things I like the most/least:
- For a US-focused software provider, they offer lots of blackjack and video poker variants. There are loads of table games overall, too.
- They don’t have any licensed slot titles, which sucks. But it’s not Club World’s fault. No US-software company can make that happen (legally).
- On the bright side, there are lots of fun slot themes to choose from. For example, they have fantasy, fairytales/fables, roman times, money, holidays, Egyptian, animals, music, food, and loads more.
Overall, I feel as if – while sometimes boring or outdated – Real Time Gaming has one of the most well-rounded and diverse selections of casino games for Americans.
What devices or platforms is their casino compatible with?
You can download their casino, which will give you the most games. Or, you can have 20-ish percent fewer games to choose from in their instant play browser casino. I’d opt for the browser casino first, as that’s the lightest and most convenient option. But that’s just me.
Nearly all their games are mobile-compatible, too. All you got to do is head to their site from your mobile device, and they’ll automatically redirect you.
If you ever have a question about what games are available from whatever platform, they label each of the games on their site using one of three symbols. Just check the symbol against their key to see if the game you want to play is available on the platform of your choice.
What do we think of Club World? Do we recommend them to our readers?
If you were to just look at the casino, it’d be hard not to recommend them.
- They have nearly 10 offers – a couple welcome bonuses, plus an offer for every day of the week.
- Their promotions have a low default playthrough – 25x-35x, depending on the offer.
- They have 120+ casino games, available on most computers, browsers and the most popular mobile devices.
- They accept bitcoin, as well as several other common banking options.
- Their weekly cash out limit excludes progressive wins.
Above all, they once (recently) had a stellar reputation in the online gambling community. But, now they don’t. In fact, they’re blacklisted at most sites worth trusting.
