Begado Casino Review
- Bonus & Wagering
- Payout Percentage
- Customer Support
Due to a very slow withdrawal process and winnings been paid out at a rate of $500 per fortnight we decided to rogue Begado Casino.
Begado Casino belongs to the Affactive Group which is owned and operated by Netad Management a company licensed under the laws of Netherlands Antilles. First time visitors to the site will note that it is not as flashy as its sister casinos. Its developers chose a simple user-interface that appeals to contemporary players.
As a relatively new online casino Begado is powered by NuWorks software. Upon closer inspection this software only offers a limited amount of casino games. The games that can be played included 27 slots, 3 video pokers and 5 table games. NuWorks belongs to the same company which develops Realtime Gaming games. We must point out that Begado does not offer any progressive games which is a real pity. We suggest you try out high volatility games such as Alaska Sun, Ancient Wonders, Carnival Cash and Catmandu. Payouts are far and few between but very high. The software of the casino can only be played in the ‘Download’ version.
Deposit Bonus and Wagering Requirements
Now that you have a handle on the various games let us have a look at the site’s promotional offers. Begado’s promotional offers are divided into three categories. First time customers have a choice between two deposit bonuses. The first is a slots bonus of up to $9,999 which consists of three deposit bonuses of 333% up to $3,333 (BEGADO) each. This bonus can only be used to play slot games. The second is a table game bonus of 100% up to $1,000 (BEGADOTB).
In addition to its welcome bonuses it also offers daily and weekend bonuses to regular players. You are most probably wondering how the bonuses can be claimed? Before you can claim a bonus you must first log into your account. Click on the ‘Cashier’ button and then on the ‘Redeem’ bonus tab link. Enter the bonus code and deposit. Let’s assume you choose the slots bonus since you enjoy playing slot games. The wagering requirements attached to this bonus is 30 times the deposit and the sum of the bonus. Once you have made a deposit the bonus will be credited to your account automatically. To qualify for any of the bonuses you must deposit $21 or more.
To stop minors from gambling Begado uses Net Nanny filtering software. However, the internet casino does not state on its website that it has a self-exclusion option available to problem gamblers.
Customer support at Begado Casino can be contacted 24/7 through live chat, telephone and e-mail. We contacted live chat and asked them some questions pertaining to the site’s games and bonuses. Suffice it to say not only were they helpful but the chap we spoke to ‘Robert’ knew his topic. However, there have been isolated cases where players complained about the site’s slow customer support.
More on how we rated this Review.
Bonuses & Promotions
Aside from its deposit bonuses to new customers Begado offers daily and weekly promotions to its loyal players. To be honest it does not offer many promotional offers and from the looks of things it does not have a VIP program either. New players are offered two distinct bonuses. The first is a slots bonus and the second is a table game bonus. You can only choose one bonus.
Up to $9,999 which is huge! It consists of three consecutive deposits of 333% up to $3,333 each. Before this bonus can be claimed you must provide the following bonus code first: BEGADO
This bonus can be used to play Blackjack, Tri Card Poker, Video Poker and Slots. We must caution you that the site’s table game variety is very limited. The bonus is 100% up to $1,000. Code: BEGADOTB
Bodog’s Big Pick 2
If you wager between 9pm and 4am every day you’ll receive a an additional 10% to 20% on top of Begado’s weekly bonuses.
In its promotions section Begado lists the deposits and match bonus percentage for the respective bonus codes for slots and table games. Here’s an example. If you deposit $21 during the course of the week to play slots you will receive a match bonus of 190%.
Banking at Begado Casino
Begado Casino offers the following deposit and withdrawal options: Visa, MasterCard, Union Pay, Neteller and Wire Transfer.
When you request a withdrawal for the first time you must provide the following documents:
1. Copy of your credit card both the front and back end.
2. Copy of your driver’s license or ID picture
3. Or you can provide copies of your gas bill, electric bill, water bill, telephone bill, bank or credit card statement.
Deposits can be made in the following currencies: US Dollars, Great British Pounds and Euros. The base currency is American dollars, if you use another currency to deposit it will be converted to US dollars at the current exchange rate.
Withdrawals can be made through Wire Transfer, Neteller and Moneybookers (Skrill).
The minimum deposit amount is $21 and the minimum withdrawal amount is $100. The maximum withdrawal limit per transaction is $3,000. Begado states that it aims to process all withdrawal requests within a period of 5 to 10 business days.
From a software point of view NuWorks is relatively unknown especially if one has to compare it with the likes of Microgaming and Playtech. At this point in time Begado Casino offers its clients only 35 casino games.
The bulk of its games consists of 27 slots followed by 3 video pokers and 5 table games. As mentioned previously the slot games are volatile but when they offer payouts it’s high. You can try out the following video slots: Carnival Cash, Crystal ball, Magic Show, Silk Caravan and Greek Goddess. They offer free spins, multipliers and bonus payouts.
Video poker games that can be played are Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker. Table games include old time favorites such as Blackjack, Baccarat, Texas Hold’Em Bonus, Tri Card Poker and Vegas Three Card Rummy.
Due to the site’s limited table game variety it goes without saying that it won’t appeal to diehard players of table games.[addtoany]
