Review of Begado Casino

Begado Casino is a little different to the internet casinos that we have seen from owners Netad Management in the past. Launched in 2012, Begado uses the Nuworks gaming platform, which offers a newer and different gaming library from Netad's related RTG casinos such as WinPalace, Slots Jungle, and Casino Titan. It is fair to say that we have been less than thrilled with Begado's sister casinos, mainly due to the slow and frustrating withdrawal process followed by all casinos in this group.

Blacklisted for non-payment of winnings by related casino

Begado's operator, Netad Management, runs several casinos similarly with the same slow instalment payments for big winners. However the actions of the staff of the related Grand Macao Casino and its non-responsiveness in a case where we attempted to mediate in favour of a player that had won $6500 have lead to us blacklisting all casinos run by this operator. The simple story is that the player deposited a small amount and won a big one, and the casino refuses to pay her. Slow payments are one thing, refusal to pay winnings is rogue behaviour.

Software and Games

We were pleasantly surprised to see Begado offering the Nuworks software package. As mentioned above most other Netad casinos offers RTG games, so this is a bit of a departure from the status quo for this group. Players who wish to play at Begado are required to download the software suite from the casino's website, where they are then required to register their information to play. At this point in time, it is not possible to play the NuWorks games via your web browser.

The NuWorks platform is actually the "next generation" of games from RTG and, as you would expect from such an experienced developer launching an entirely new line of games, the games operate smoothly and are visually impressive. In particular we really enjoyed playing African Skies and Stone Age Cash, and you can really tell that the RTG/Nuworks group has worked hard to put the polish into their new library. It is definitely a case of quality over quantity though and at the time of the review Begado could only boast a limited gaming library of just 27 different video slots. RTG slot junkies may just find that there isn't enough variety to keep them coming back regularly for more.

The table games selection at Begado is similarly limited, but the games themselves offer a decent experience. They are more or less "re-skins" of the RTG table games, so if you have played them you will know exactly what to expect. While you won't find a huge variety of games like you will often see at other casinos, you get the basics such as Baccarat, Three Card Rummy, Tri Card Poker, Blackjack, and Hold'em Bonus. Add to that a couple of games of video poker and you have more or less the entire catalogue of games at Begado, with Roulette, Craps and Caribbean Stud being some of the more glaring omissions.

Banking and Customer Service

Begado Casino does offer several ways to deposit and withdraw money, more so than what we have recently seen at U.S. friendly casinos available on the web (see right for the full list). Of course, while it may be easy to get money into the casino, as usual for U.S. based players the devil in the detail comes when it is time to withdraw, and for that you must rely on a check.

This leads in to our biggest issue with this casino. While the options are good enough, we are concerned about the Netad Group's payment history. In the past we have dealt with several complaints regarding slow payments for casinos owned by Netad Management. Players are paid in the end, but wins are paid in instalments of "up to $3000 per fortnight" and the amount paid "depends on player class". Our translation of those phrases based on real world experience is that unless that you are a high roller who has lost a significant amount at the casino already (and really, why would a high roller be playing at this casino given the limitations?), you can expect to receive no more than $500 per fortnight at the very best. The bottom line is that if you do hit a nice win here you will be made to wait, possibly for months in the end for a decent sized four-figure win. Given our experience with the related Grand Macao Casino detailed above, we can no longer say with any confidence that you will be paid at all.

Customer service is available through live chat, telephone, or email 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. We found the support system to be good, with instant messages being answered quickly and questions regarding the Casino Listings free bonus chip being answered politely and comprehensively.

Summary

Ultimately Begado Casino has little going for it. Its main drawcard and indeed probably the main reason for its existence is that it accepts American players, not to mention that there aren't a lot of other NuWorks casinos around at the moment. Even so, there are better NuWorks casinos with exactly the same games such as BuzzLuck and Lucky Club Casino that we recommend that you try first. We can flat out say that this casino is not worth your time.

Warning! This casino is blacklisted and should be avoided.

Hello, Begado casino comes to my attention from spam. Lol, of course, like their sister sites like winpalace, they send out a lot of spam. But i should tell that they offer me no deposit bonus, and i get it, no complaint here. Even it comes with spam, but they honor their spam offers, and i was not cheated with it. After playing out my no deposit bonus, i made couple of deposits after it during a year, actually i am not big fan of casinos in this group, but oh come on, they sent so big and sweet bonuses, so sometimes i am as bonus lover lost my mind and made deposit. Actually i win only from one deposit, and had only one withdrawal there, and i should said it was a bit headache, as their cashiers probably work very slow, or something like this, but my verification tooks for me around 7 days, and total cashout time is about 10 days.
Support: Live chat is nice, email chat did not tested.
Withdrawals: 10 days took for me my first withdrawal. Not happy.
Software: Software works nice and without problems.
I give them 3 stars, because i like nuworks, like their bonuses. But begado casino can not get more than 3 stars from me.

This is probably the most spamming casino ever, but right now comes to my mind another discipline which could be Begado classified as a winner at - number of various no deposit bonus codes (while 98% of them does NOT work - currently I think the only one working is "CLISTINGS" (obviously? Smile ) ).

I must admire their games and the slots software they are offering. Its not very popular - I found only 5 casinos offering NuWorks Games Software at all (and 2 of that are blacklisted or warning-listed), but its very similar to Real Time Gaming Software. But in my opinion, it has better bonuses - even 3-reel slots games could have 3-4 various bonus round features, this is what I really admire very much (I like bonuses!). The game is called Triple Bonus *something*, be sure to try to play it at least once in your life.

It consists of a "reel" bonus - when you get at 1st and 3rd reel in the same row a special symbol, you win an "instant win", then there is a "scattered" symbols, which must appear on each reel once of them and they determine the bonus multiplier, which could be right after that either more enlargened, or you get free spins (and the winnings are multiplied by scatter's multipliers).

It is a bit difficult to describe, but I can put everything important into 2 sentences:
- try this slot game
- do not deposit at this casino, its warning-listed somewhere and its doubtful (imho)

Begado casino using games from nuworks it is very rare slots but this casino is a bit sad because they had not very nice terms and conditions and pay money not very fast. So from begin i can say that better to play lucky club casino with same software but without bad terms and conditions and without any delays in payments. But begado casino have so many nice bonuses and give so many no deposit bonuses so i try sometimes this casino. First of all i want to share my experience with first payout request verify take for begado casino about 7 days and it is very long they not like my documents want two utility bill that should be different call me 3 times with the same questions but finally i get verify and get my payment on skrill accout it take for this casino 10 days. Few other payout requests from this casino of course not so long but not fast too it takes 5-7 days to see money arrive in my skrill account. IF you good with low payout limits and slow speed of payment this casino is good for you because have many interesting bonuses. I will play again for me speed of payouts not so important.

Begado casino it is nuworks powered casino. This casino is very active in case of different offers and bonuses, and i am also start getting their offers even before i joined this online casino. It have some pluses and some minuses, so decide yourself did you like this casino or not, based on my experience.
+ Software. Nuworks software which used in this casino is good, also i used only download application, and everything was very good in my experience, i did not notice any slow spins or bugs, and everything was nice.
+ Customer support. I never tried email CS, only live chat, and it was online every time when i was online. It is looks good, and i get help without any useless information at live chat.
+ Bonuses and promotions. Casino have a lot of different bonuses and promotions. There is good and big deposit bonuses, cashback offers, and of course like at many such casinos there is a lot of free chip offers. I get few deposit bonuses, and did not had any trouble with crediting it.
And based on my experience, i have one minus for this online casino.
- Withdrawals and verification. Verification was headache and it took 5 days. And about a week more to 'process my withdrawal'.
Final mark.
Everything seems good, but headache with verification, and slow withdrawals... It is bad.
