The Gaming Club is the old man of online casinos. It was established on the Mediterranean island of Malta in 1994, which is ironically when Microgaming Software, the platform upon which The Gaming Club runs, was also developed. Microgaming claims to have released the first genuine online casino at that time, and whilst there is no information available to definitively confirm that The Gaming Club was the online casino to which they refer, the dates match up and I think we can definitely say that The Gaming Club was one of the first online casinos.
The Gaming Club is a member of the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC) and as such conforms to all the regulations laid down by the organization. In addition, The Gaming Club appears to have gone above and beyond with its security to ensure the safest possible gaming environment for their customers. They are licensed by the Government of Malta, a license that is highly sought after due to its stringent requirements, and the security in place ensuring that your payment details are safe and secure is second to none. They comfortably declare that “Your credit card details are 100% safe with Gaming Club!”
On top of all this, Gaming Club Casino has also received the eCOGRA Seal of Approval. eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance, or eCOGRA, is a UK based independent organization whose primary function is to ensure the security and integrity of online gaming operations. All of these factors go to make The Gaming Club feel like a great, and extremely safe, place to play online.
As I mentioned earlier, the software behind The Gaming Club is Microgaming Software. Microgaming Software gives you the opportunity to play online in a flash based environment, to download software onto your computer, or to play on your mobile device either directly or in the form of a downloadable windows/android or ios app.
If you choose to download the Microgaming gaming package you give yourself the capability to open up multiple games in multiple windows. From the Casino Lobby you can see all the games that are available to you as well as well as current jackpots, features and more. You can also access your account management area where amongst other things you can purchase additional credits and track your spending.
If you prefer not to download, you can access the Casino using Flash Player or via your mobile device where you have access to a carousel of games and your account management area and it is available in multiple languages
The Gaming Club also utilizes the Quickfire platform which gives the customer access to the largest online progressive jackpot network in the industry.
Moving onto the games themselves. The Gaming Club has over 400 games available, including Slots, Blackjack, Video Poker and Roulette, to name but a few. Their most popular slot experiences include; The Dark Knight Online Video Slots, High Five Mega Spin Slots, Double Magic Mega Spin Slots and both the Oranges and Lemons and Cutesy Pie Classic Online Slot games.
If you’re really seeking out the ultimate in Casino Experience, The Gaming Club has upped their game to include Live Dealer. With the advent of high-tech video streaming capabilities, they have introduced the ability for you to play with a real dealer, dealing real cards, right in front of you on your computer. It’s as close to being at a real casino as you can get without leaving your home! Currently the games available on Live Dealer are Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack.
If you’re interested in trying out The Gaming Club, then you should be aware of their double deposit bonus promotion. If you deposit $200 into your account, they will match it up to $200. If you deposit a second deposit of $150, they will match that up to $150. Double your money! Terms and conditions apply to bonuses, 18+.
The Gaming Club like so many of its competitors offers an incredible gaming experience, but where I feel it beats out the competition is in its obvious care for the customer. Where many offer live help but rarely actually do, The Gaming Club truly does have live help’, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. This really did seal the deal for me.
