The way I found Buzzluck was the same way I found Club World, I researched it, and it had good reviews. A lot of casinos had good reviews but that's not what drew me into depositing at Buzzluck. Up until that point I had only played the typical RTG software.
Buzzluck is one of the few Hybrid Models they offer. By hybrid I mean combining RTG and NuWorks software. Normally I wouldn't deposit at a casino before trying it out with a free chip first, I made an exception for Buzzluck because it had an array of games I had never played before. This was the second casino that I had more than a silly 20$ deposit at. I had a whole detailed paragraph of every hand I won but like I said I hit something that made me go to a different page and I lost it all, so I will give you a little more of a general idea.
I deposited $100 and used their first deposit 100% match bonus with a 25xD+B play through, with video poker counting as .5 for every $1 played.Long story short after a good vid. poker session I was up about $150, and after some very nice slot bonus rounds I was up as high as 800+.I proceeded to play 5-10$ per spin slots to finish the play through req. When I reached the play through I had about $500 I was able to withdraw. I'm not very smart at times, especially after staring at a screen for over 7 hours. I kept playing and playing till I lost it all. I used to do this all the time with poker, deposit $100, then play for 10 hours straight, smoke 2 packs of cigarss, and when I'm falling asleep in the middle of hands I still keep playing and lose it all.It's funny because I'm 24 and have been to a real casino about 12 times. I have been up a couple hundred a few times, and 4 out of the 5 times, I stopped playing, even while the people I was with would keep playing (I guess seeing the money in hand makes a bigger impact lol.) Anyways back to my review, I'm going to review this casino on a few key points, 1. Experience (this will include playing there, and the customer service) 2. Software (one for slots, and another one on video poker) 3. Banking (Deposit/withdrawal options)4. Bonuses (Match offers/Free Chips/other)
1. EXPERIENCE RATING: 9.4/10
I enjoyed the change in software when I started playing there. As you know, my first experience was good, winning, and winning quite a bit. They also have the same customer service as Club World, and if you read my review on that casino you would know how highly I thought of it. I felt even though I didn't end up keeping any of the money, that was my own fault, and I feel I got my money’s worth.
2. SOFTWARE RATING 8.1/10
If I was just a slot player, I would’ve most likely given the software a ranking a 9+. The slots had cool themes, a good amount of slots with bonus rounds, that seemed to pay well and fairly easy to trigger, and they had progressives, one of which is over a million. The reason I gave it a ranking in the low 8’s is because the variety, I mean lack thereof, of Video Poker. They only had 3 types: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, and Joker Poker. They do give you the option of playing 1, 3, 10, 52, and 100 hands at a time, but most bingo sites offer more variety of video poker games than Buzzluck does, and I took 1 point off for this. The reason I took off another .3-.4 points, is because the website claims to have tournaments, but I can’t find any, and I’m pretty sure there isn’t any. If I’m wrong about that, someone please correct me.So if you’re solely a slots player I would definitely recommend you try Buzzluck out, but if you like video poker this is not the place to go.
3. BANKING RATING 9.9/10
The deposit options are identical to Club World, so I will plagiarize myself on this part. As a player from the USA, most sites restrict any form of deposit except Visa, and it usually has to be a prepaid Visa at that. Club World accepts Visa, Mastercard, and American express. That is only the basic credit card options, they also offer EZ Voucher, MyPaylinQ, Click to Pay, and Wire Transfers. It also gives you the option of depositing over the phone, and if you’re having trouble there is a 24/7 customer support option to help you deposit. For those who don't live in the US have the additional options of Neteller, Skrill, Visa Electron, and Eco Card. That is a wide variety of options for a US player, and especially a lot for those around the world. The Deposit options are almost identical so I will Plagiarize most of my other review again ;) lol. When it comes to withdrawals they offer (US only) ACH at a 5% fee, A check for US residents with a 25$ dollar fee, when the amount is less than $750, they offer Eco Card withdraws (I assume not for US players) and I don't see any fee for that option, Instadebit, Moneybookers, MyPaylinq, and Neteller, all appear to have no fee associated with those methods. They offer a Wire Transfer for non US players, minimum of a 300$ withdrawal. I saved my favorite for last, this is an option I don't remember seeing even before 2006 when I played online poker, for a $9 fee they have an option Pay My Card, which allows you to have the money sent into the credit card you used to deposit with ( unfortunately not on prepaid cards, they have to be actual credit cards). The other option they offer which club world doesn’t offer as a withdrawal option is On Demand Funds, I’m not quite sure what this option is, I assume it’s some sort of E-wallet, But the minimum withdrawal is $1, which is about as convenient as it gets. Most of the other options offer you the ability to withdrawal amounts as low as $20, which I have said before is great, it prevents you from having $50-75 balance and trying to get over $100, and end up losing it all. They certainly have a great range of options when it comes to depositing, and withdrawing money, which is why I gave it a 9.9.
4. Bonuses Match & Freebies Rating9/10
They offer an initial 100% match bonus, but after that they have match bonuses that suit just about every type of player out there. They have bonuses for low depositors, and high rollers, they even have a 75% bonus if you deposit over $50 that allows you to select your favorite games and let them be used towards your play through. That Is one of the most unique options I’ve seen when it comes to match offers. When it comes to free chips, I got the free one on Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s, and one in the mail. I may have missed more; about 6 months ago (before I made an email specifically for casinos) I had a Hotmail account that got shut down because they thought someone had hacked it or something like that? So I didn’t receive emails from them for a while, if it wasn’t for forums like AskGamblers I may have never even heard about the ones around the holidays.

OVERALL RATING 9.1/10
