The UK based Club World Casinos group was once a network of online casinos aimed at players from certain countries, but their policy has changed in time. By this time they have abandoned most of their “national” casinos, operating through their other international brands instead. One operation remained national, though – the Club SA, aimed at players from South Africa, launched in 2010.
As all other casinos in the Club World group, the Club SA also operates under a license issued by the gambling authorities of Curacao, through the company’s local subsidiary.
Registration, country-based restrictions
South Africa has 11 official languages, but the Club SA casino only “speaks” one of them – English. It is open for players from all over the world (the only country-based restrictions included into the casino Terms are those referring to players from the Netherlands Antilles, Costa Rica, Israel or France).
Registering an account here is simple – you just need to submit a completed form through their website or downloadable casino suite, and you are done.
Software and games
All Club World casinos are powered by Realtime Gaming – and the same is true for Club SA. Players can access a selection of over 120 great games through the casino’s downloadable software suite, and about 80 of them through its website, by accessing Instant Play.
The list of games includes all the best known RTG titles. Most of the games are slot machines, as usual for online casinos nowadays. At the Club SA casino players can access over 80 titles – classics like Caesar’s Empire or Cleopatra’s Gold, or later releases like The Three Stooges II, Naughty or Nice Spring Break or Football Frenzy. Players can also choose to go for the big win offered by the progressive slots available at the casino – Jackpot Pinatas, Aztec’s Millions, I.R.I.S. 3000 and many others.
There is no casino having only slots in its offer – the Club SA also offers its players a series of other games, like table games, video poker, card games of all types and specialty games like keno or bingo.
Being a casino aimed at the South African audience, all money-related information is displayed in Rand (1 US dollar is worth approximately 10 rands).
Deposits to the casino can be made using credit cards, Neteller, Skrill and various Skrill services (VISA Electron and VISA Debit). The minimum deposit amount accepted by the casino is R200, while the maximum is R7,100 for most methods, except VISA Electron (R21,100) and Neteller (no maximum limit set). Payments made by these methods are processed instantly.
The list of available withdrawal methods is shorter than usual. Players can withdraw their winnings using Neteller, Skrill and Skrill’s Online Bank Transfer service, in amounts between R200 and R35,100. Withdrawing to e-wallets is instant, while the bank transfer needs up to five business days to be completed.
Players at their first withdrawal need to confirm their identity, age, address and credit card ownership (if any) before the payment can be approved. The Club SA casino – just like all other Club World operations – takes this procedure very seriously. Most user complaints about these casinos I have read were about the extreme severity of this procedure.
As all other online casinos, the Club SA also offers its players a series of benefits and bonuses.
New players at the casino can make a deposit using the offer code BIGSLOT to redeem a first deposit bonus worth up to R8,888 (100% of their deposit). This bonus has to be rolled over 20 times on slot machines, keno and scratch cards before being qualified for a withdrawal, otherwise the bonus amount will be eliminated from the player’s account.
Alternatively, players can choose another 100% deposit match, up to R2,222, on their first deposit with the offer code NEW100. This bonus has a higher rollover requirement – 30x – but this can be completed on all games except baccarat, craps, roulette and sic bo.
The bonuses can be redeemed either by introducing the offer code into the appropriate field at the Cashier, or through a special page created for this purpose.
Existing players have several other bonuses to claim – deposit matches, free spins, and complementary points that can be exchanged for cash or other benefits.
Overall, the Club SA casino is a nice place to play at. It has enough games to keep players occupied for hours each day, it has the potential for being really profitable – and it has bonuses to keep the players’ pockets full.
