Miami Club Casino is an online casino established in 2012 with games supplied by WGS Technology. It is operated by Deckmedia N.V., Curaçao and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curaçao. Last updated: February 27, 2019.
Gaming operator Deckmedia N.V. really has a lot going for it recently. The firm already has a steady lineup of good casinos with Slot'O Cash, Desert Nights and Slots Capital Casino, and is expanding its base with the recently launched Miami Club Casino. The casino runs on the WGS Technology (formerly Vegas Technology) software platform that has seen a brief resurgence recently after the abrupt closure of all casinos using it in 2011. So does it reach the lofty heights set by its sister casinos, or does Miami Club Casino disappoint?
As mentioned above, Miami Club is powered by WGS Technology software, which has been around for over a decade now under the guise of firstly Odds On Technology, then more recently Vegas Technology. While the company name keeps changing, the games do not and you can find all your favourite games that you would have enjoyed if you are a player who visited one of the several casinos that have offered these games in the past.
Title wise, Miami Club offers more than 150 different games, ranging from slots to table games, to specialty games such as Dazzling Dice. All of the games are animated nicely, although none seem to have that ultra high end look and feel that one might expect with a more modern IGT or Net Entertainment powered library. This does however have its benefits and I was impressed with the ease of which I was able to download and install the casino. With the "lightweight" nature of the games on offer, I was up and running within just a few minutes after hitting the download button. I also tried the no-download instant casino, and found the account registration to be just as simple.
I enjoyed games like MahJong Madness and Casino Hold'em and the rest of the casino's great selection of table games. Mulligan poker is a unique twist on the legendary card game that I found quite unique and enjoyable, and the blackjack interface enables experienced players to play at great speed. The slot machines are not the best lookers that you will find, nor are their any big name licensed tie-ins, but they all load and play quickly. Several contribute to pooled progressive jackpots that sit in six-figure territory at the time of this review.
A particular strength of casinos using this software has always been the tournaments system that they all run. Miami Club is no exception and it provides a wide choice of tournaments that use a format that is a little different from most others you may have tried. Instead of using an "accumulated payouts" system to determine the winner like Microgaming or RTG casinos, these ones are based purely on the balance of your tournament bankroll that can fluctuate with each spin or hand. This adds a nice element of strategy to the tournaments as you are often faced with the difficult decision of when to stop playing to try to hold your position on the leaderboard.
Seeing as how it supports American punters, I was not surprised to find the banking options at Miami Club to be a tad limited. The sad fact is that with the financial restrictions placed on internet gambling by the U.S. Government, there are few reliable options to deposit and withdraw funds from e-casinos. Unfortunately this is the case here, and American players who make a withdrawal will need to be satisfied with a choice between a Wire Transfer and a Check. Players from other countries can make use of e-wallets such as Neteller, Moneybookers, and EcoCard. There is a withdrawal limit for players wishing to pull funds out of the casino, which is only $2000 per week.
I was impressed with Miami Club's customer service, which offers support through telephone, email, or instant messaging. I had no particular issues with the casino, but did ring the help through a chat session feigning a problem. I was met with fast and courteous service, and was happy with the experience.
Despite the Miami Club website not showing a padlock that indicates that your connection is securely encrypted at all times, our testing showed that the important stuff, namely registering, logging in, and transacting with the cashier, are all securely encrypted. This safeguards you personal information and financial data from being intercepted by third parties while crossing the internet.
This casino's operator holds a Curacao based AntillePhone license to operate online casinos. Unfortunately this is more for the casino's taxation benefit, and it says little about the fairness or otherwise of the casino, nor does it provide you with any protection as a player. The site claims that WGS Techs random number generator is audited, but provides no evidence to back up this claim, nor does it publish any theoretical or actual audited payout figures for its game. Of course this is par for the course for U.S. friendly casinos located in loosely regulated jurisdictions but nevertheless I expect to see better in this day and age.
Miami Club Casino is a decent option for fans of WGS Technology games. The games are fun, they load quickly, and the tournaments system is a particular highlight. On the other hand, the casino is let down a little by small weekly withdrawal limits, and a complete lack of transparency about its operation. If you're an American player this one is worth a look, but players from Europe and other regions have far better options to pick from.
