Review of Golden Reef Casino

For several years Golden Reef Casino has been giving punters throughout regulated jurisdictions a world-class gaming experience that is part of the Casino Rewards series of betting sites. Golden Reef is powered by Microgaming and Quickfire, and is the sister site of other excellent sites such as Phoenician Casino, Zodiac Caisno, Rich Reels, among many others.

Software and game selection

Golden Reef Casino is powered by Microgaming, which is the oldest online betting software developer in the world. It should be noted that the casino closed their website recently, leaving only a downloadable platform to play your games with. This bucks the trend of most modern casinos that only have web-based platforms. The software allows punters the opportunity to play some of the best online slots in existence such as Tomb Raider, Avalon II, The Dark Knight, Phantom Cash, and dozens of others. The slots range from very complex to simple 3-reel titles and are generally of high quality, although we do find that there are a few clunkers here and there.

Players looking for progressive jackpot games will find that there are sixteen different titles offering these prizes. The largest of these is Mega Moolah, which regularly pays out large multi-million dollar jackpots but generally sees most of the titles are in the several thousand-dollar range.

If you are into table games or video poker machines there are also many choices available. These games include Vegas classics like Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Baccarat, Poker, and more on the table side of the casino, while video poker games such as Jacks or Better and Deuces Wild can also be enjoyed.

Banking and Customer Support

Golden Reef Casino boasts a very diverse banking section on its site, with the casino offering more 40 different ways to deposit and over 15 different ways to withdraw funds from the virtual teller. These methods vary from e-Wallet, credit cards, bank wires, and a paper check (for withdrawals only).

I have never had an issue with Golden Reef's banking as money is generally paid out very quickly. The Casino Rewards group is one of the biggest names in online betting, meaning that the cashier is as stable as they come. With that being said, they do have limits on withdrawals for people who win a lot more than they deposit - specifically $4000 per week if the amount won is more than 5x your deposit amount. This does not apply to the huge networked progressive jackpot wins, thankfully.

Customer service is generally quite helpful, with staff able to be reached via telephone, email, or instant message 24 hours per day. The staff is knowledgeable when it comes to bonuses and game rules and can usually help you out should an issue arise.


Golden Reef Casino continues the Casino Rewards tradition of being an excellent spot to play slots, table games, and video poker titles. The casino has an excellent library of games and a comprehensive banking system. It is a casino you should definitely consider if you are looking for a new site to play at.

I have to say that Golden Reef is one of my least favourite casinos from Casino Rewards group. I joined them a long time ago because at the time I was a fan of Microgaming games. Also from my experience, Casino Rewards casinos are quite trustworthy. I deposited a few times at Golden Reef casino, once made a withdrawal and it took about 5 days to get to my bank account- I think that the 2 days pending period could be avoided, it's a long time these days! Also their game selection is decent yet if you want to play different games than Microgaming, it's not the place for you. I also didn't really like their casino lobby, it feels very outdated and quite laggy. But on top of that, I never received any good promotional offers, only small deposit bonuses like 25% which made me look elsewhere to play Microgaming games.

I prefer this casino because is really generous !After registration i went to my cashier with purpose to receive the 25 euros no deposit bonus which offered that time of period i visited ! Unfortunately the bonus code message i took after put the code was that this bonus is not eligible for my country so i talked immediately with live chat to know more about this exclusion and the kind casino representative tells me not to worry and that he will add to my profile 15 free spins on slot Enchanted Garden with purpose to try their casino and maybe cash out if i am lucky !All i can say is that I really love this slot because i love the characters and the fantastic colours has and i want to thank them for this special treat! The wagering was 60xbonus and the max cash out was 25 euros !I enjoy this offer even if i did not win !The last i want to mention is that this casino has American Express payment method which is rare to find to other casinos so i give a new plus for this casino ! I hope every casino looks like this one with no limits to choices on the deposit methods and to great bonuses ! 5 stars from me !

Golden Reef is online casino are operated by CRgroups, they give 100% welcome bonus for first deposit, and i tried to play with them, i feel so good when play with casinos sites from CRgroup because we can collect some point from our activities with every casino from CRgroup and we can exchange or radeem the points with a bonus money, back to golden reef, in that time i deposited $40 and play my favorites slots game megamoolah , quite good because i starting with good balance , after spining for a 20minutes i've trigger freespin and they're pay around $30 with 0.50 cents bet, im not surprised with the winning because megamoolah always give bad winning. And then i try to play basketball stars, only for few minutes i got the freespin and they give nice winning 200x bet from 0.50cents, and i keep playing with basketball stars and finish the wager and save the money at least $280 are withdrawable, and after make withdrawal request i've wait the money and succes arrive on the e-wallet for 4days, so this is my personal reviews about golden reef, i think they're very good and big casino site

I joined and made a deposit and took a 100% bonus from what they offered and ended up bit by bit, but one day it was a bit of a shock to me because golden reef sent free freespin email, quite surprised because I have never found anything like it before, pretty good because I got 50 freespin in game thunderstruck II, and its freesspin also runs very cool, in freespin bonus I got a bonus money worth $ 44, although the turnover is pretty much but I just enjoy the free bonus from them, so at least I can look for opportunities with megamoolah, after completing a high turnover I managed to get 75usd, after which I tried to cashout and within a few days I have got my money has been sent to my account bank. amazing, awesome...

As I have been excited like hell from my previous great experience with Casino Rewards group, especially with Villento Las Vegas casino, I was almost sure to find another one of this group, which will seem quite legit and also will look that it would pay to me something eventually – and so I found Golden Reef casino – definitely it impressed me by its hamster logo on the main page 😂 . I have got excited even more and decided to deposit immediately – I have also , same like by the last casino, deposited only the minimum amount to claim the bonus, but at this group after my and also my known’s experiences with them even that is honorable 🙂
I started to play Avalon and automatically expected that this casino will pay immediately 🙂 however, this time I was wrong – the casino actually never HAS TO pay and also never could be surely told if it will pay, or not – and this gameplay proved it completely 🙂 It has awarded me with feature at 0.80 balance! And this feature paid me over 40€, but nor this sign of fortune caused my visit at this casino to finish fortunately. I have simply finished with zero balance and also a bit angry against Casino Rewards and feeling being fooled , although that the feeling “it definitely MUST pay” was born just in my head and was caused by an unappropriate reason.

Golden reef casino not good example of casino, at least for me. I am not saying anything bad, do not throw tomatos in me! I know that some players love this casino and this group of casinos, but it is not for me. I am a bit ill gambler, and it is hard for me to stand against reversing of my withdrawal, and in this group of casinos this is my biggest problem. I have nothing against lot of emails from them, nothing about not many bonuses, but i can't see my withdrawal pending for 3 or more days, it is terrible, specially when i am lost other money on my skrill, most likely i am just reverse withdrawal and continue playing, and in 99% ocassions this is terrible idea and i just lose everything back to casino. So if you compulsive gambler like me, and you can't watch on pending withdrawal for a couple of days, this place is not your choice, you need much more faster withdrawals. Support is good at golden reef, withdrawals is slow like i said, and bonuses not very good. But if you strong enough to resist on reversing withdrawals this casino can be good choice for you, and you can have fun here.

Golden reef online casino one more casino title, that most likely you even did not know, or played at this casino once or twice, and totally forget it. And i think this is how most players deal with this casino, because i am also can not say that i am happy with this casino. But let me start from counting pluses and minuses.
+ Software. Microgaming software here offered with two options, you can download application(best way to play, but took some time), or play in browser(quickfire, fastest way to play, but sometimes it can be laggy). At golden reef casino i tried download application - everything is great, no problems.
+ Customer support. Casino rewards operator have big CS team, and it is very good CSR that always happy to help. Best way to contact them using live chat option, this helps to start conversation very quickly.
And two minuses, that i am always add to all CR operator casinos.
- Withdrawals. In general it took 3-7 working days to get paid on ewallets, and it is very long for MG casino.
- Bonuses and promotions are not exist for active players.
Final mark.
Like all other CR titles i have nothing really positive about this casino.

Golden reef casino is great one because give slots from microgaming allows to download software on PC and because it is a part of big group of casino that has name casino rewards. Many players not like this group and blame it on every website and also this group are not welcomed on casinomeister but i never have problem with this casino and i think it is but with dificult to understand terms of use and no one like spam from this group of course i not care about it i use another email adres for casinos in this group and live happy without getting spam at my main email adres get this hint and do this same. Golden reef casino greedy to bonuses like any other casino in this group promotions also very rare and stupid i remember last one that give 250$ to 5 lucky players who wager the most in the dark knight game and this promotion across all casino in group and i think it is impossible to wager most in all casinos because it is many players and high rollers take this wins. Support is good across this group and work 24/7. Payouts take 3 days most time but i never have payout from golden reef casino and even uninstall it as i can find it on my folder with casinos.

Hi, i hope you will enjoy my review of golden reef casino, this is microgaming casino, and also golden reef casino owned by casino rewards group of casinos, and as you should already know, casino rewards is very good group of casinos, safe, and reputable. I join this casino from one of the spammy email casino rewards send to me, i check out welcome bonus , it was 100%, and i thought to my self why not, i will not have any problems with this casino, and 100% bonus also very nice thing which stimulate me to join this casino and start playing. I made my first deposit of 60$ and with 120$ on my bank i start grinding microgaming slots. I try probably 20 slots during this deposit, and i play till free games feature, and after this i just leave slot. Luck was on my side, and i finish with 240$ on my account and wagering was cleared, so i happy request 240$ on my skrill account ,and it was paid in 3 days. I am pretty sure golden reef casino is very good place to play, also they belong to casino rewards, that means casino is reputable and safe, so i wish you a lot of luck with this casino.

Hello! Golden reef casino is another one casino that powered by microgaming and belongs to famous casino reward group of casinos. I play here too, as i am describe in another reviews - i like to take bonuses, and i really think that this group of casinos can be trusted, and you can play there without any fear to get your money stolen or confiscated with any stupid reason like ' your gameplay is too lucky, so we decide to confiscate all your money'. Anyway, golden reef casino offers to newcomers a nice 100% SUB, so why not, and i made very huge deposit for me - 100$. Yeah, i am rarely make such big deposits, but this day i decide to play a bit high. With 200$ balance i decide to try batman slot(dark knight) with jackpot, who knows, i play only on 0.90$ bet, and it tooks for me probably 5 hours of gameplay, had few chances for jackpot, but always get the lowest. Anyway, as a nice thing, i finish this long journey with 460$ on my account, and i had a lot of fun and entartainment. Money was cashouted, and i think this was very good night for me.
Support: Like all casino rewards group - support is absolutely good
Withdrawals: I get mine in about 65 hours, due to 2 days pending period.
Software: OK!
3 stars for golden reef casino, nice place to play.
