Things are not always what they seem

Reef Club Casino is bearable. Just take a deep breath before you open it and bear with it for some time. It won’t look any better as you do so, but the true beauty lies within, bla bla and all that vanilla crap. The games won’t disappoint you (most of them anyway), and the banking options are great. Just beware of the bonus terms - those are truly the next level of bullshit, far and beyond what we're used to seeing.

Pros

  • Good licenses (UK) and safety certificates (eCOGRA);
  • 15 years in operation;
  • Surprisingly good mobile website;
  • Excellent live games;

Cons

  • Old and outdated desktop website;
  • Underwhelming slots collection;
  • Post-wager welcome bonus with x50 wagering afterwards;
  • No live chat;

Reef Club Casino is operated by Cassava Enterprises - a subsidiary of the colossal 888 Holdings. Being a close relative to such a respected brand, it should be not bad at the very least, right? Right?

“The casino is not bad per se, it just looks old, ugly, and outdated.”

The website is stuck in the past, the casino lobby (what you won’t have access to until you register an account) was apparently designed for 800x600 screen resolutions.

The legal and security stuff is stellar though. Licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar, approved by eCOGRA safe and fair seal, with various encryption and firewall technologies to protect your data, external and internal audit tests - it’s as safe as it can get.

Banking: Everything seems to be taken care of - they have payment methods like credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Webmoney, and Wire Transfer, all available for both deposits and withdrawals.

Customer Support: Your options are limited to email and phone. There’s no live chat anywhere to be found. We’d point out that this is unacceptable for a modern casino, but then we remembered that it’s an 888 Group casino we’re talking about. Typical for them to drop the ball in player support. And yeah, still unacceptable.

Software and Game Variety

Besides the fact that the lobby looks ugly, the games themselves are pretty good. The casino has all the exclusive homemade 888 games, plus those from WMS, NetEnt, Microgaming, Barcrest and several more.

That being said, the variety is not huge - there are currently about 80 slots in the library. The “New” section is particularly spectacular. Steam Tower? Dazzle Me? Weren’t those released like two years ago? Blood Suckers? It’s already a classic! Oh, it’s the touch version.. Alright then. Other than that they also have:

  • Progressive Jackpots: The Big Lebowski (the Dude!), Irish Riches, Treasure Fair;
  • Table and Card Games: Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Video poker, Casino Hold’em;
  • Other: Keno, Bingo;

“If you tolerate the dated website and lobby, and are not particularly into slots, this place might be good for ya.”

Mobile and Live Games

We were surprised to discover that Reef Club Casino works perfectly well on mobile devices. Better than on desktop, really. It’s like seeing your grandpa go skateboarding or something.

Live games section is where Reef Club shines, thanks to the 888 platform. You can play virtually anything there is to play live: roulette (in several languages), blackjack, casino hold’em, baccarat, texas hold’em, three card poker and Caribbean stud.

Bonuses and Promotions

The Welcome Bonus at Reef Club Casino comes as a 200% match bonus on your first deposit up to $300. Wagering requirements are rather high to start with (x50 on the bonus amount) and are further increased to x100 for deposits through Neteller or Skrill and for players from certain countries. Does it look bad enough yet? There’s one more thing…

You only get the bonus after you make a deposit and play in through 10 times. Meaning you’ll need some luck to get it in the first place! What a joke.

There are also Comp Points that you earn simply by playing games and convert back into cash, and VIP program with some extra bonuses like faster cashouts and tailored promos.

Our Opinion

If you tolerate the dated website and lobby, don’t have a problem with the 888 Group (alas, most players do), and are not particularly into slots - Reef Club Casino is not outrageously bad. Top-notch security and licenses, nice games other than slots (those are okay, but too few), average bonus - there’s nothing terrible about it. Except maybe the-next-level-of-bullshit bonus terms (where you have to complete the wagering to start completing the wagering).

Click here to visit Reef Club Casino - just clench your teeth and don’t run away instantly. It’s better than it looks.
