Let’s lie down under Malibu Club Casinos’ parasol and inhale the scent of the ocean. Play on Rival gaming software and experience Californication vibes. However, not everything about this casino is so dreamy and pretty. So let’s comb through this sand beach and reveal this casino’s good sides and flaws!

General Information  

Let’s put on our flip-flops, have a cocktail, and activate our brain cells in order to reveal all the juicy Malibu Club Casino stuff.

What is the first thing that pops up in your mind when you hear ‘Malibu?’ Two and a half men? Charlie Sheen, the ocean, seagulls, sand, sun, celebrities, Baywatch, cocktails, the wind playing with your hair? Our first impression of the Malibu Club Casino was that it gives you a great looking website in the true spirit of the American Dream.

This casino has been around since 2010 in the ownership of the Merus (UK) LTD Casinos. Although we usually name the license holder, in this case, we had some serious problems finding it. We came across some mentions of the Curaçao license, but not on the official casino website. Finally, after contacting the Malibu Club customer service, they provided a complicated answer.

Namely, we asked a simple question: “who is your license holder?” to which the operator replied, “we have the seal of approval from Casino Directory.” That was the only answer we got, so the bottom line would be that this casino does not own a valid gambling license. Having that in mind, we cannot and will not recommend this casino to anyone, since the license holders exist as a form of security for the casino members in case of any disputes between you and the casino.

Terms and Conditions Analysis

This casino reserves the right to deny membership applications or cancel the existing players’ accounts and keep all of their money, without any explanation. This is extremely risky if you give this gambling website a shot, especially if you win a Progressive Jackpot, for example, and the casino management doesn’t like it. In essence, this clause allows them to publish your winnings on their leaderboard but close your account and keep all of your winnings if they wish so. Which brings us yet again to the lack of a proper license. You have no one to turn to for help with claiming your winnings.

Additionally, if the Malibu Club Casino operators determine that a player has a history of fraudulent actions at any casino, they will block their account and void all their winnings and deposits.

Other than these rules, all of the other terms and conditions are pretty standard. The players must take care of their passwords, security, and the laws of their country of residence regarding the legality of gambling, etc.

Games and Software

Games and Software Malibu Club Casino

Malibu Club Casino uses Rival gaming software with quite a modest game range. This casino features 200 games more or less. Sincerely, we hope they will enrich their game choice just a bit. The lack of live games was the biggest disappointment for us so far.  After all, in today’s capitalistic society, every business has to keep up to remain competitive and sustain itself.

Another great side of this casino is that you have the options of playing online via Instant Play, Download, or even giving the mobile casino and playing games on the go a shot since the platform is mobile friendly.

Now, when it comes to their game library, this casino’s game range is quite modest. It offers 4 Bingo Games (American Bingo, European Bingo, 30 Ball Bingo…), 26 games in the Three-Reel Slots category (Sevens and Bars, Diamond Cherries, Heroes Realm…), as well as 23 I-Slots — the most popular ones being As the Reels Turn, Fixer Upper, and Wild Safari. On top of that, there are also 5 Jackpot Games, like Major Moolah, Money Magic, and Strike Gold. And as far as Mobile Games go, you can choose between 41 different titles (Silver Unicorn, Love and Money, Cleopatra’s Choice…).

Finally, the casino also offers 8 different Scratch and Win Games (Tiki Treasure, Beach Bums, Cast For Cash) and 10 Table Games, featuring some of the old school classics, such as American and European Roulette, Ride ‘Em Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Baccarat, and Craps. However, the biggest category by far is the Video Slots one. Its crown jewels are Ten Times Wins, Casino, and Star Jewels.

The vast majority of these games look fun to play, they are very responsive, and they receive a lot of attention from the players.

Finally, we’ve kept the best for last — the Progressive Jackpot! Oh, boy, we’ve got some good news for you. All of Malibu Club’s games are connected to the Progressive Jackpot pool! But do note that you will have to play with real money if you wish to go for the progressive games.

Bonuses and Promotions

Bonuses  Malibu Club Casino

It has come to our attention that inexperienced players think that the Welcome bonuses are mandatory. They most certainly are not, and if you wish so, you can proceed with your gambling without using any bonuses whatsoever. In fact, not every player is attracted to these alluring little features.

But should you turn out to be a bonus fan, here is everything you need to know about Malibu Club Casino bonuses and promotions.

Before you can count on any bonus, you must first deposit some real money in order to be eligible for the usage of the casinos’ benefits. However, before you decide to make a withdrawal, you need to fulfill the wagering requirement, which is 35x your deposit and bonus for the first and the third deposits. But when it comes to the second deposit bonus, the wagering requirement is 30x. Slots and Slot variations have a 100% contribution to the rollover requirement, and Video Poker and Multi-Hand Poker have 20%.

Let us give a big round of applause for this casino’s clear bonus policy because they straightforwardly state that their bonuses are sticky unless stated otherwise. Now, you have to understand that this, although it’s not player-friendly, is quite rare to come across. Most online casinos try to hide that fact by using complicated words and confusing terms. Yes, the bonuses are sticky, but you are notified of that fact, so you don’t have to try and claim them and get in a problematic situation with the casino — a position we know all too well.

The minimum deposit amount for bonuses is $30. Moreover, the maximum payout of the free money bonuses is $100. And should you wish to withdraw your first bonus winnings, have in mind that the pending and verification period is 72 hours. This is only true in that specific case.

Moreover, the players have a period of seven days from redeeming a bonus to start wagering and playing.

Now, let’s talk about some concrete bonus offers. New members are awarded the Welcome Bonus. Namely, Malibu Club Casino offers a 200% match bonus for making the first deposit with a maximum of $400 payout. There is also a second deposit bonus of 250% match and a $500 maximum withdrawal. And when you make a third deposit, you receive a 300% match and a maximum payout of up to $600.

There are also daily promotions available, such as Thursday free play, or the Weekend free money with a 200% bonus match and a $600 maximum withdrawal. Wagering requirements for all of these bonuses are 20x.

Customer Support

We have never seen an operator respond as quickly as the ones at the Malibu Club Casino.  And they’re not only fast, but very kind and patient. We contacted them via live chat, and they were more than willing to assist us and answer all of our questions. Most casinos tend to ignore the visitors on their website by directing them to their terms and conditions page, with the excuse that they only help their members. You can also contact the casino operators via email or toll-free phone. But in the end, you might not even need to contact the casino reps because all of the terms and conditions are written transparently, so you’re unlikely to be left confused after reading them.

Summary

Malibu Club Casino appears to be a cute and fun little online gambling website visually. The interface is easy to navigate, so you can find whatever you need quite easily — games, bonuses, live support, and terms and conditions. However, when you try to find the license holder, you quickly realize it’s mission impossible. Additionally, on the bright side, this casino’s helpful operators are just one click away, as their live chat feature is highly responsive and available to both members and non-members alike. But this doesn’t change the fact that the bonuses they offer are sticky, so you can never withdraw them.

Furthermore, this casino has the right to exclude you for “whatever reason they seem legit” without any explanations as to why such an act occurred. Again, you have no one to turn to in the case of any dispute with the casino management since you’ve agreed to the clause that all the decisions the casino makes regarding your winnings are final and definite. The lack of a license holder should be what tips the scales in the decision-making process of whether to play at this establishment or not.

Every reputable gambling institution should have a license, and we would have to advise you not to gamble at any that doesn’t. After all, the governing bodies that hand out these licenses are the ones behind the establishment’s trustworthiness and are a sort of guarantee for the players.

So yes, just like we’ve already stated, we wouldn’t recommend this casino. It does not appear to be a safe place to gamble at for all of the aforementioned reasons. On top of that, the game range at this site is pretty weak. Even though you can find some fun and addictive games and even a Progressive Jackpot possibility, it still isn’t enough to make this casino worth your time.
