Gold Club Casino Review
Casinos like Gold Club make such sour and cynical guys like us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Twenty years and counting, it gets better with age like a good wine. The sheer essence of it has traveled through the years, and… Alright, enough with this bombastic bullshit. The casino is fine - nice games from top-notch providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Play N’ Go and others (could be more numerous though), pretty website, and fair reputation. Their Welcome Package is more or less decent. It spreads upon your first three deposits, gives you €500 bonus cash and 80 free spins (a 100% match up to €100 right on your first deposit), carries standard wagering requirements (40xB) and a couple of limitations.
- Over 20 years online;
- Modern design and navigable interface;
- Over 7 software providers;
- Mobile friendly;
- Hosts live games;
- Limited support working hours;
- No video poker games;
- €5 bet limit during an active bonus (€2 for certain games).
Gold Club Casino has been in operation since 1997. This makes it a real grandpa among casinos. It’s good to see that they keep up with the times - in 2015 they re-launched as a completely instant-play casino, with brand-new software and games. The casino is regulated by the laws of Curacao.
The website looks nice and modern. Everything works fast, smooth, and there are no glitches. All the necessary information is easily accessible in the Support section. If anything, the casino lobby could use some additional filters for easier games navigation.

Banking: While the number of banking options is small, it covers all the popular payment methods. The withdrawal options include Visa/Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, and Bank Wire. In most cases, the withdrawals are free of charge. However, if you won’t wager you deposit amount at least once, then a 5% fee will be attached to the withdrawal amount.
Customer Support: The support service is available through a live chat, email and phone number. However, their working hours are a bit limited. You can get in touch with them daily from 9:00 to 21:00.
Software and Game Variety
When you look at the Gold Club Casino games library, you can really tell that they decided to be as modern as possible. Only the coolest kids are on this playground: NetEnt, Play’n Go, Microgaming, Quickspin, ELK, BetSoft, and more. While there are not that many games - just over 200 - each and every one is special. Let’s have a look at some of them:
- Slots: Starburst, Blood Suckers, Hellboy, At the Copa, Big Bad Wolf;
- Jackpots: Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune, King Cashalot, Major Millions;
- Table Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Beat Me.
What’s weird, is that we couldn’t find a single video poker game in their collection.
Mobile and Live Games
The Gold Club Casino website is mobile-friendly, and runs fine in your mobile browser. That being said, it’s not user-friendly in the slightest. It looks fine on tablets, but on a smartphone you get a ceaseless strip of games (in one or two columns, depending on the screen orientation), with no other means to navigate through them but scrolling. Not even a search bar, for crying out loud!

The Live games are only available on a desktop, and include Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Keno, and Lottery, which is more than most casinos offer.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Welcome Package in Gold Club Casino covers your first three deposits. The maximum you will get is €500 in bonus cash, and 80 free spins on Golden Legend slot. Weird, but a banner on their main page states that you can get up to €800 in bonus cash. Anyway, let’s see how it works in fact:
- First deposit: 100% match bonus up to €100 plus 10 free spins on Golden Legend;
- Second: 50% match reward up to €150 plus 20 free spins on Golden Legend;
- Third: 25% match up to €250 plus 50 more free spins on Golden Legend.
The wagering requirements are alright - 40x the bonus amount (and the free spins winnings). There are some limitations, like a limited maximum bet (€5 maximum bet for most games, and €2 bet limit for certain games), or some games aren’t contributing towards the wagering requirements at all, or the country restrictions. Be sure to check the full bonus terms, otherwise they could kick you in the ass when you least expect it.
Visit the Promotions page yourself for the up-to-date offers, they have some nice free spins offers from time to time.
