Whats not so hot?
With new management at the helm Malibu Club Casino re-launched recently. The operator has that island look and feel about it. If you’re up for a little bit of unadulterated fun strap on your seat belt and let’s head off to the Caribbean. The casino is licensed in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.
If you don’t know where Curacao is this little island is situated in the Caribbean and a former Dutch colony. One can say it’s a tropical paradise with crystal blue waters and expansive coral reefs teeming with marine life. No wonder why so many licensed USA casinos flock to these shores. To wager at the website American players must be 21 years or older.
Malibu Casino runs on the Rival platform. Presently it offers a suite of 140 casino games that’s available in the Flash (browser-based) or download. The graphics of the download software is slightly superior to that of the Flash. I feel that Rival has a lot of catching up to do since the browser-based software of NetEnt and Microgaming are far superior. However, the downloadable software offers a larger game variety and the graphics of the games are slightly superior. Players are now increasingly tuning into their mobile phones. This is why the casino offers a mobile section exclusively to mobile gamblers. .Sign up now and get $25 free to try – No Deposit
If it’s your first time visit at this tropical island casino it welcomes you with a no deposit bonus of $25. The purpose of this bonus is to allow you to try out the games for free at the expense of the operator. In a addition to the no deposit bonus a match bonus of 100% up to $1,000 is up for grabs too. Each bonus can be used to play slots and parlor games.
This is a sticky bonus. Once you’ve cleared the play-through attached to it the bonus is deducted from your winnings. If you’re not sure how it works here’s a brief explanation. You deposit $100, the casino credits your account with an extra $100. Play with $200. Once you’ve completed the bonus wagering, let’s say you won $300, $100 will be deducted from your balance (winnings $200). Before you accept a bonus ensure that you understand its terms and conditions.
Players from the following countries are excluded: Afghanistan, Canada, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Greece, Guam, Indonesia, Israel, Mauritius, Netherlands Antilles, Panama, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine, United Kingdom.
The staff at the casino are at your beck and call 24/7 be it through email, live chat or toll free telephone numbers. If you need a swift reply to your query I suggest you contact live support. I tested the live support and spoke to ”Jim”. Not only was he familiar with the operator’s current promotions but explained to me how the play-through attached to the sign on bonus works. Now that’s what I call service. That being said, email support can be a bit lagging at times. Expect a reply to your queries within 6 hours.
If compared to other vendors Malibu Club Casino offers 140 games that are fragmented into 3 reel slots, video slots, i-slots, progressives, video poker and table games. Incidentally as one of the oldest gaming vendors the Rival games are renowned for their realistic game play, reel spins and card dealing motions.
The majority of the games are video slots and of particular interest are the i-slots. Each game has its own unique theme, wilds, scatters symbols and free spins bonus rounds. I recommend Cosmic Quest, All The Reels Turn, Reel Crime, Gold Rush and Wild Safari.
If you had enough of playing slots machines table games like blackjack, pai gow poker, casino battle and red dog might be a nice change. Here you can play against a virtual dealer and can even hear the cards shuffling in the background. Make sure you understand the game rules and strategy of the game you’re playing.
To ensure that all player information stays safe Malibu Club Casino employs a 128-bit SSL encryption key. Long story short you don’t have to worry that your private information will be compromised.
If you’re concerned that the games are not fair rest assured they are. The Rival games are tested at least once every four months for safety. The games offer players a fair chance at winning and have not been ‘fudged’. Just a pity the operator does not list the audit report on its website. This would help players a lot since they will be able to see which games offer the best return.
Malibu Casino is not for idle players. Aside from the operator’s bonus offers to new players it has loads of promotions in stored for active players. Various bonuses can be redeemed throughout the course of the week.
Loyal depositors receive cash back of 25% on their previous week’s losses. A tiered-VIP program takes care of active players. As you work your way up each level so will your rewards increase.
It’s refreshing to see that Malibu Casino offers a variety of deposit methods. You can fund your account with an e-wallet (Neteller, Skrill and ecoPayz) Visa, Ukash, PaySafecard, bank transfer or check. Deposits can be made in U.S/Canadian/Australian dollars and British Pounds.
Although all withdrawals are processed swiftly. The only caveat I have is with the operator’s low weekly withdrawal limit of $2,500. Luckily VIP players can withdraw higher amounts. Otherwise it’s one of the better web casinos for U.S players at the moment.
