Buzzluck Casino is an online casino established in 2011 with games supplied by Realtime Gaming and Visionary iGaming. It is operated by BeSoftware N.V. and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curaçao. Last Updated: November 16, 2020.
Buzzluck Casino has undergone an interesting transformation after some disastrous beginnings. One of many casinos to launch and subsequently shut down in an ultra-competitive industry, it was eventually sold to the operator of the Club World Casino group. It was then reopened with a new software known as NuWorks and finally switched back to a Realtime Gaming casino in 2020.
All casinos in the Club World group changed hands in November 2016 after an acrimonious bust-up between the family members that shared ownership of the business. It has since come to our attention that the inexperienced new management has brought in external advisers that are associated with the extremely rogue AffPower group of casinos, an organisation that sits on our blacklist. We urge players to reconsider playing at this casino as we no longer feel confident in saying that it is a safe place to play due to the influence of a criminal element on casino management.
Something else we noticed recently is the misleading and deceptive promotional claims made on the website. At the time of print Buzzluck falsely advertises a "600% Match" bonus over your first three deposits at the casino, consisting of 100% on the first deposit, 200% on the second, and 300% on the third. I am sorry but any high school age kid knows that you cannot add percentages like that to arrive at a total of 600%. Back in reality, as opposed to wherever Buzzluck's marketing team learned to add, those percentages cannot possibly add up to more than 300%. The exact total depends on the amount you deposit in total over three deposits, but the best you can do with a minimum deposit of $35 on the first two and a maximum of $1000 on the third is about 290%. This sort of false advertising would be illegal in a regulated jurisdiction.
Buzzluck Casino runs on the most well known American-friendly casino platform, Realtime Gaming (RTG). The casino features more than 100 slot and table games that have been released over almost two decades in the industry. The games run the full gamut from old and basic through to modern and sophisticated. Most of the games are quick to load, and many can be played on your mobile these days, though some of the more ancient games still require the Flash plugin that is slowly going the way of the Dodo. Many of the RTG slots feature local progressive jackpots that are paid randomly, along with bigger networked jackpots that are shared amongst many different RTG casinos.
The table games available at Buzzluck consist of old favourites including Blackjack, Roulette Caribbean Stud, Baccarat, Three Card Poker, as well as less common games such as Let It Ride, Pai Gow Poker, and Texas Hold'em Bonus. There are a handful of Video Poker machines and also a live dealer option available with games provided by studio supplier Visionary iGaming.
The cashier function of Buzzluck Casino is instantly familiar if you have ever played at an RTG casino. This is something I actually do not mind, as I would rather see a stable banking platform than innovation (in this feature at least). There are several different ways for players to deposit at Buzzluck, with Credit Card, Neteller, Skrill, EcoPayz and Wire transfer being some of the ways to put money in. Withdrawals can be performed via Check, Wire transfer, EcoPayz, Skrill, and Neteller. Bitcoin is also a deposit and withdrawal option, and as per usual with RTG casinos it is only used as a medium of exchange. This means that you don't actually play games using Bitcoin as the currency, instead and your deposits will be converted into U.S. Dollars for play in the casino and vice versa on the way out.
I was a bit disappointed to see high minimum withdrawal amounts for some of the withdrawal options such as check ($200) and bank wires ($300). While I understand that some of the money wallets have lower minimums for withdrawal, many American players that Buzzluck will appeal to do not have access to these payment methods. In addition, withdrawals are limited to a maximum of $5000 per week, though the casino states that progressive jackpot wins are exempt from this limit.
The casino offers 24/7 phone support, instant message support or email assistance. Typically you have to make it past an automated bot by answering a few basic questions before you get to chat to a real human. But once you get through answers to questions are generally replied to very quickly.
All access to the Buzzluck website, gameplay, and processing of personal and financial information is secured via SSL encryption, which is pretty much standard for most websites these days. Unfortunately this casino only holds a license from Gaming Curacao. I say "unfortunately" because while that may sound impressive, in reality it is utterly meaningless when it comes to player safety or fairness. Curacao master license holders do the bare minimum in vetting their license holders, and absolutely nothing to help players in the event of a dispute with the casino. From a player's point of view, it is no better than an unlicensed casino.
As is sadly typical for effectively unlicensed casinos, Buzzluck does little or nothing in respect of modern responsible gambling practices. There are no self administrable settings that would allow you to restrict the amount you may deposit, wager, or lose at the casino, nor is there a way to self exclude without contacting support and speaking to a human.
While this casino was recommended here as a solid choice in the past, recent ownership changes and confirmation of the involvement of a noted rogue operator in the management of the casino makes me very wary of this casino for the time being. Avoid.
