Online Gambling

Club USA

The Club World group of casinos has been operating since the early 2000s and in the online gaming world that’s a pretty long amount of time. During this time the group have learnt a lot about how to operate online casinos and as such the casinos operated by this group are very popular. Club USA is Real Time Gaming-powered and given the name of this casino it is only right that all US players (from every state) can play here. In fact, players from pretty much everywhere in the world can have a piece of the Club USA action!

Software and Games:

Club USA (or any of the Club World Casinos actually) operates using Real Time Gaming software. Club USA in particularly uses the US $ currency although players from other countries may find they are redirected to a casino set up in their own currency (e.g. UK players get sent to the UK-Pound Club World Casino and a Euro-casino is also available).

With this being a RTG-powered casino players can expect slick gaming action and a respectable number of games to play. Favourites such as Blackjack and Video Poker are all available as well as a great range of slots. Club USA have a huge number of Reel Series games each with their own random jackpots. These climb as people play and at random one lucky player gets to win the pot. With these running in to $000s members can literally turn pennies in to huge payouts!

Club USA does offer some no-download games but in honesty these are not that great – the graphics are just not up to much although of course for a quick play they hit the spot. Generally though players will want to play at the download casino which can be installed within literally just a few minutes.

Game Presentation:

Anyone who has played at an RTG casino before will know the software is pretty decent. The graphics are sharp and although perhaps not the best available online they certainly do the job. More importantly, game speed is superb with no stutter at all. In fact, when it comes to smoothness of game play Club USA really cannot be beaten. Similarly sound effects are used to enhance game play although there are no dealer voiceovers at Club USA.

For me though the real draw at Club USA are the slots. These utilise bright graphics and the varied themes really give players a chance to have some fun. Little touches enhance game play still further – for example if a player needs 3 symbols to trigger a bonus and two have already appeared, the remaining reels take an extra long time to stop to enhance the anticipation of the spin!

The only games that are a slight disappointment are the Video Poker games. The selection of these is great (actually better than at many other casinos) but the game quality looks slightly dated. I just feel the graphics could be improved slightly, although having said that it’s difficult to make a VP machine look completely awe-inspiring!

Cash, Deposits and Withdrawals:

For a while some RTG-powered casinos had a bad reputation for being slow in paying withdrawals or for coming up with excuses not to pay at all. Others attract US players but then struggle to pay when it comes to winnings thanks to tough laws in operating in the States. Thankfully Club USA is about as far-removed from those horror stories as is possible. Well-funded, this casino operates quickly and efficiently when it comes to cash handling.

Players can deposit using a number of different methods such as credit card, debit card and online wallet options. US players should have no difficulties in depositing thanks to the fact Club USA work hard to ensure money can still be used to fund a player’s account.

Similarly, withdrawals are also swiftly processed with the casino endeavouring to process all withdrawals within one business day of requesting. This is great and shows just what a well-run casino is capable of. The only thing to note is that players may be requested to send ID before any withdrawals will be processed for security reasons. Similarly, a maximum payout of $3000 per week is enforced (apart from progressives) so very big wins are broken down in to weekly payment amounts.

Bonuses and Terms and Conditions:

A huge $777 deposit offer is open for new players for slot play (a 100% match) or a $150 bonus for card players. The only downside to this free money is the wagering conditions (20 times deposit and bonus for the slot bonus and a disappointing 50x for the card bonus). Although these terms are not great they are sadly pretty much par for the course nowadays and of course this ‘free money’ does give players more playing time.

Free money doesn’t stop at sign-up at Club USA with daily coupons giving players more bang for their buck and the on-going comp program returns cold-hard cash depending on the number of bets placed.

The great thing at Club USA is that all bonuses are invoked via coupon redeem meaning players that want the bonus can get the money instantly whereas those that don’t can play safe in the knowledge unwelcome funds are going to be added to a player’s account.

Customer Support:

Support is available around the clock at Club USA with players able to get assistance via email, live chat, telephone and even snail-mail post. It’s good to know when playing that a dedicated help team is standing by should anything go wrong.

Other Comments and Summary:

Club USA has a great reputation online and considering there are some distinctly dodgy casinos trying to get in on the US-action, it’s good to know that US players can still find a top quality place to play at. Club World Group knows how to run a casino and at Club USA players can expect good games and most importantly good cash processing and support functions. The only criticism is that some games look slightly dated but generally this is a good casino to play at and with payouts often being processed in 12 hours or less players can gamble here safe in the knowledge they’ll get paid if they win. We’ve been a member at Club USA for a number of years now and during that time we’ve had not a single negative experience.
