Graphics and Software

Powered by Microgaming software The Gaming Club offers some of the best graphics and animations in the business. The animations in its slot games are very realistic and on par with those offered in land-based settings. Players can either download the software of the casino or play it in the Flash version.

Software and Special Features

All a player’s personal information is protected by the Gibraltar Data Protection Act 2004 and the principles held therein. 

When you register an account at Gaming Club your financial and personal details are fully encrypted by state-of-the-art 128-bit SSL encryption software affording optimal security. 


Variety of Games

Simply put the game variety is exquisite. You can pick and choose from more than 500 games ranging from a plethora of slots which seems to be the pick of the crop to tables games, progressive games that offer million dollar plus payouts, video pokers, slots and blackjack tournaments and speciality games like bingo and keno. Slot games that are very popular with players at the moment are Tomb Raider, Thunderstruck, Mega Moola, Battlestar Gallactica, Octopays and Mad Hatters. The top table game is European Blackjack.

Sign-up Bonus

To be honest we are not impressed by the sign up bonus of 100% up to $100 especially if one takes into account the amount of games the site has on offer. The bonus is below industry standards. To qualify for the bonus you must make a single deposit of $20 or more.


The Gaming Club has some interesting promotions lined up for both new and current players. The internet casino will update its players through its newsletter pertaining to its latest promotional offers. Loyal players can earn loyalty points based on how much cash they have wagered within a specific period. If you have accrued 200 points these points can be exchanged for casino credits.

wagering Requirements

The welcome bonus offer of 100% up to $100 carries a wagering requirement of 50 times the bonus before a cash out is permitted. The reason why the wagering requirement at The Gaming Club is 50 times (higher than that of other casinos 30x) is players can cash out their winnings immediately with the site’s bonus system. The wagering system incorporates a percentage tracking mode.

Here is an example: If players receive a 100% match offer their casino account is split into a ratio of cash to bonus balance. A deposit of $100 goes into the Cash Balance and the bonus of $100 goes into the Bonus Balance. In other words 50:50 (Cash:Bonus). A player can cash out at any time. If a player wins, the player can cash out the cash balance.

Assume the player wins $1000. $500 will go to the Cash Balance and the other $500 will go to the Bonus Balance = 50:50 ratio (Cash:Bonus). The player can cash-in the cash balance of $500 without meeting the 50x wagering requirement, however the remaining bonus balance of $500 will be forfeited.

If the player reverses the full cash amount of the withdrawal, the casino will re-credit the player’s bonus balance with the amount of bonus monies removed from their account at the time of withdrawal. Should the player not cash-out and continue to play to meet the 50 times wagering, the bonus balance moves to the cash balance which can then be withdrawn. Players can cash out any time.

Please note: With the 30x wagering model players are locked into meeting the wagering requirements first before any cash-in can be made.

Also, the minimum deposit at Referback’s casinos is just $1.

Wagering on all casino games except for Roulette, Sic Bo, Craps, Baccarat, Table Poker, Casino War & Red Dog count towards meeting the play through requirement.

The sign-up bonus percentage which may be wagered on certain games will differ as follow:

Games that contribute 100% towards the completion of the play through requirements are All Slots, Keno & Scratch Card games.

Video Poker (not including all aces pokers), all Blackjacks (apart from classic) contributes 10%.

Classic Blackjacks, All aces Video pokers a mere 2%.
All Roulette, Sic Bo, Craps, Baccarat, Table Poker, Casino War, Red Dog counts 0%.

Progressive games count towards the completion of the wagering requirements only if it is progressive slot games.

Players are not allowed to use the gamble feature to complete the wagering requirements.

All game play on MPV (Multi Player Tournaments) does not count towards the play through requirement. Under no circumstances are you allowed to register multiple accounts if you do so you will forfeit the Sign-Up Bonus.


At the time of writing The Gaming Club’s total progressive Microgaming jackpot network stood at a whopping £4,400,149.08 and counting. A total of 14 progressive games can be played.

Progressive games includes progressive slots and poker. Mega Moolah presently offers a progressive jackpot of £2,1 million, Major Millions a jackpot payout of £560,000 and Poker Ride £208,000.
