Review of Punchbets Casino

Punchbets Casino is interesting in that it is not primarily an online casino, but rather focuses on sportsbetting, particularly as the name suggests, on UFC fights. The casino is something more of an afterthought, with Punchbets seeking to earn the business of players who are seeking a break from their sports wagers. This is not to say that the casino is bad (there are actually some really good features here), but one could be forgiven for overlooking Punchbets as strictly a sportsbetting operator.

Software and game selection

Punchbets offers sportsbetting directly through their website, and the casino is available in-browser as well. I found registration at the casino to be fairly straight forward, taking only three minutes of my time to get through the single form that Punchbets requires to be filled out. The casino itself has games provided by the likes of Microgaming Quickfire, Net Entertainment, GamesOS, Playtech, Pragmatic Play (formerly known as TopGame), and iSoftBet, among others.

The Punchbets website is fairly utilitarian and the games are organised into tabbed sections that are rather unhelpfully labelled "Casino 1", "Casino 2", and so on. There is a quick search box that seems to search across all the tabs at once though, which can be used to find a specific game, but only if you know its name of course. The casino does offer a good assortment of slots, table games, and video poker titles for punters to try. There are quite a few progressive jackpot games available, with the notable ones being offered through Microgaming's Quickfire system, such as Mega Moolah and Major Millions. And finally there are two live dealer casino tabs available, which allow you to play studio run games of Blackjack and Roulette.

Banking and Customer Support

Making a deposit or withdrawal at Punchbets Casino can be achieved through a variety of means, including credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, EcoPayz, along with various bank transfers. The casino can also pay you via cheque when withdrawing. Additionally the site supports a wide assortment of currencies which may be handy for you if you normally have to convert your local currency to US Dollars or Euros before you can play at most casinos.

My test withdrawal was handled in an adequate timeframe, though it was nothing exceptional. From submission to receiving the money into my Skrill account, I waited a total of 5 days which included time for verification of my identification. I had to fill in an account verification form and submit a copy of my driver's license and a recent utility bill before my account was approved for withdrawal. So if you want to expedite the process, go to the cashier and do that as soon as you create an account so you don't have to wait after your first withdrawal.

Note that this casino has a weekly upper win limit of only €25,000, plus a weekly withdrawal limit of €10,000. Speaking of which, I have been told by casino management that these limits do not apply to winnings from progressive jackpots. However this exception is not explicitly stated in the casino T&Cs, which does concern me.

Customer Support is available by email and live chat. The live chat support operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Security and fairness

It is good to see that registering, logging in, transacting, and playing on the site is done under a fully encrypted connection at all times. PunchBets is licensed to operate a sportsbetting and casino site by the government of Curacao. As usual (and this is not specific to Punchbets), we have little regard for a Curacao license as the regulator there does little apart from collect licensing fees from operators. Though it claims to adhere strictly "to the gaming regulations of Nevada". it does not publish either the theoretical or actual RTP for any of its casino games (bar those such as Net Entertainment that divulge this themselves), nor does it publish any independent certification of the fairness of its games on the website.

Responsible gaming gets a dedicated page on the Punchbets site, where players can get links to fight underage gambling, and there are also tips to see if you may be susceptible to problem gambling behaviours. Links to outside organisations are provided should you need help, and you can always self-exclude from the site if need be. However apart from this, there are no self-administered controls available to you to limits your deposits or wagers at this casino.


There are a few really nice games to play at Punchbets and if you enjoy UFC and/or other forms of sportsbetting then the site might interest you. However with the comparatively low weekly win and withdrawal limits, plus the confusing organisation of the games on the site, it is hard to recommend this casino above the many others that have more or less the same games.

I was really full of unclear expectations when I was joining and depositing to this casino, while its downloadable standalone client app was downloading and installing - which was the first unusual thing among online casinos (its not common for betsoft casinos to have such client).
The first cold shower was the min amount to withdraw - im not sure about the exact number but it was pretty high (50 to 100 credits, not sure). Second thing was that the client is quite poorly established and the casino is mainly betting site, so casino is not the center of creative promotions or anything.
The result is that trying this casino was absolutely wrong decision.

Tried this place with 25$ no deposit chip, which i found on our russian forum, where usually people post all possible and not possible no deposit bonuses Smile
Well, bonus was claimed without any troubles, and i tried some betsoft games. To be honest i am very unfamiliar with their games, and have a very bad knowledge what games to play. Played some games i never tried, and my experience with betsoft software is still the same - games looks not so bad, but payouts are terrible.
After reading CL review and 5 days of withdrawal to skrill. Well, it is 2015 already, paying with such speed just unacceptable.

hello everyone, I am new to online casino review forum. But I am no stranger to online casinos.

I would like to share a little story about me and punchbets mma free bet. A little background about myself. I was a MMA fighter, fighting in a local league. Like all the fighters other do, I spent all my money on booze and gambling. I had good experience with Bodog and Betfred. I found out punchbets through one of our fighters facebook page. It was a not so bad looking site. I was not planning to bet on this site until I found out about their free $10 mma prop bets. Then I decided to give it a shot. Signing up was not a big deal. pretty much like every other sites. I did not expect too much since it was just $10 prop bets, but they must have more than 30 free bets a month, I know it cause I almost bet on everyone of them. After 3 months, I almost had $240 in my account. Then I tried to withdraw. They asked me to email them my ID and utility bill, piece of cake. couple days after, I got a cheque from them. Personally I think it was awesome, I did not even deposit once. Then I decided to stick with them. Now still bet on that free prop bets(why not?), I made some deposits, after the first withdrawal request, withdrawal become much easier now. I do not bet on casino very much, just couple times when I got drunk, I played blackjack, I think I am still up couple hundred Smile. thats about it.

Mattl, as far as I can see in our notes for the review there was no code for the no deposit bonus. I'll email them and clarify.

Thanks for your feedback luckydog.

I'd still be wary of the site based on the lax security. I have been in contact with them about it and have made a few suggestions. If they can get that stuff fixed up the site would be a whole lot more attractive.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

Thanks for pointing that out, there is indeed a code. To Redeem the $100 free chip, log in and go into the cashier, click the promo code button and enter NDB100.

This is now updated in the bonus details above and I've given you 5 CLChips for finding that bug!

Well finally got around to using the No Deposit Bonus here. $100 NDB

First off there site is not half as good as there front page says. For a start there Betsoft 3D software is down but still says available so thats a big chuck of their slots gone. This leaves the ace gaming software which is a whole 20 games. Very basic slots to say the least. 3 line, 5 reel slots on the most basic platform i've ever seen. Not very interesting at all.

Live chat is on when they feel like it as they weren't available when i tried the first time. Not 24hr live chat as advertised.
Ok so after 2+ hours of playing i actually cleared the wager/playthrough of 60x$100ndb=$6000 believe it or not with a balance of $120. Finally got a hold of Live Chat to check!
Live chat then informs me that to withdraw it is $150 ($100ndb + $50 max cashout) as well as i had to email their banking section to ask for a withdrawl. Also a print off form to fill in and send back and normal ID and address confirmation too.

Back to the grind to clear the $150 needed to withdraw. That was all she wrote. For some reason after live chat the slots went subzero on me and not 1 lot of free spins or anything for $122. Just killed me off!!

Very dis-organised casino. Lacking software bigtime. Has live chat if you can get a hold of them. The bonus money system is earn as you go (had $30 'free money' as well as $100ndb).

Not recommended 1/5
