Winmasters Casino Review Jump to comments

Winmasters Casino is an online betting site with sports, slots, digital games, and live dealer streams. The site was launched in 2014 when they were first granted a  license by gambling authorities in Malta.

The brand is owned and operated by WM Interactive Limited (No. MGA/B2C/275/2014) and uses SBTech for its sports platform. Casino games are provided by top developers like Microgaming, Play’n GO, Pragmatic Play, Realistic, and many others. Look for over 1,300 games spread across multiple easy-to-navigate libraries.

Live game streams, including classic casino floor games and game show real money social titles are provided by Evolution Gaming. The website is available in the English, German, and Hungarian (Magyar) languages. Live dealer games may be available in your native language versions depending on your location.

Payment methods vary by location but generally, you can expect to find debit and credit cards, eWallets like Skrill and Neteller, vouchers, and instant bank transfers. Most, if not all deposit methods including Paysafecard are also available for withdrawals.

Bonuses and promotions are currently only offered for sports betting on the website. However, if you see new casino bonuses listed on this page please see the basic terms and claim the bonus from here in case it is an exclusive offer.

Support is available via live chat, a comprehensive online FAQ, and email. International support is available 7 days per week from )9:00 - 22:00 CET with local language support provided Monday through Friday from 09:00 - 17:00 CET.

We don’t find management representatives on any of the player advocacy boards. However, we also don’t find any complaints from players. Sports bettors might want to consult book experts for a rating. We will be looking only at the casino in this review. 

That being said, we will look at any terms and conditions we find to be unclear, unfair, or unusual in the “Pitfalls” section below.

Throughout the course of this in-depth review we will take a look at the software and games, bonus rules if available, payment processing options, and terms and customer service pathways.

Once we have an intimate understanding of the gambling hub in toto, we’ll supply a bullet list of any potential pitfalls to look out for, and finally, we’ll render a final word on the operation.

Let’s get started!

Software and Games

We can confirm through Malta Gaming Authority documents that the site uses the SBTech platform for sports betting. Since the company is also listed as a casino service provider on the MGA license and no other Type 1 Service providers listed offer platforms that would support the active betting site, it’s a good bet that SBTech also provides the gaming platform.

What that means to players is simply that the site operates as a unified system with various other “plug-ins”. By clicking on the live casino button, you’ll go to a section that carries games provided by Evolution Gaming. Based on the other 2 Type 1 service providers, all other games most likely come over the Microgaming aggregator network (Quickfire), while EGT games have their own API (application programming interface/plug-in). 

EGT Interactive games, and perhaps some others, are provided under Euro Games Technology (EGT) subsidiary, Amusnet Gaming’s MGA license.

EGT, their premium game cabinets,  and their games are well-known commodities in eastern European land casinos and beyond with a footprint that expands with every new gaming site that launches the titles. https://online.worldcasinodirectory.com/egt

The well-established and highly accredited Sofia-based manufacturer operates in more than 75 jurisdictions in nearly 20 countries without even counting their ever-expanding remote footprint. We first saw them deploy games for the internet in 2016 in a partnership with Gaming1 when about 70 games went live in the Romanian market with Circus.

The interactive division allows them to convert and launch land-based games into any regulated jurisdiction in the online world. Players who long for NOVOMATIC slots but can’t find them online where they live will take to classic games like EGT Ultimate Hot in place of NOVO’s Ultra Hot Deluxe.

Additional EGT Interactive titles of interest to fans of similar slots might  include

  • "5 Dazzling Hot"
  • "Flaming Hot"
  • "Lucky Hot" and "Extremely Hot"
  • "Olympus Glory"
  • "Ultimate Hot"

Navigation

This element might not normally be a consideration for the average player. However, since the site also offers live events, predictive sports betting, and a live dealer suite it is worth a brief mention.

Simply choose the category you want to choose from along the top of the page and sports bettors won’t even notice the casino as well as the other way around. There is some overlap and redundancy between digital random number generator animated games and live dealers streams, but that goes away if you enter the Live section.

Game filtering and sorting

One nice feature here that we haven’t run across before is filtering and sorting for each game sub-category, all on one page. With this, you could scroll past or to any section such as popular, jackpots, tables and cards, video slots, video poker, keno and bingo, etc., and then filter by provider and sort by popularity, release date, or alphabetically.

It’s not a profound development choice, but there are only so many possible configurations to organize a website, and this one is innovative but most importantly functional. Since form follows function and simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, the designers here seem to have settled on a near-perfect user interface.

Alternative navigation

Above the pictorial representations of the game types, there is also a text link menu. Some, but not all of the second-tier game-type options exist in both the top menu and the visual scrolling menu. Both lists start with “Top Picks”.

Just above the game icons the text-link list of choices also adds Megaways slots and a “New Provider” section. When we visited, the featured studio was Realistic Games LTD. The London-based developer has been making slots and other games since 2002 and holds licenses from the MGA and the Gaming Commission in Great Britain (UKGC).

We found about three dozen of their titles here including Time is Money, Symmetry, Super Graphics (x2), and Sunset Reels. The games are all available for demo play on the site using the exact same parameters as are launched in real money play.

Megaways

These games can be found by using the text search box (magnifying glass icon) in the top left corner - in which case 22 games are displayed. You can also simply click the word in the menu to display all of the game titles (30 as of review time).

Look for more than 100,000 virtual paylines (ways to win) on games from all of the top developers that incorporate the Big Time Gaming mechanic. Each spin is like playing a new slot machine with fewer or more active win lines with every spin.

Some of the games are classics that have been re-released with the engine like Divine Fortune Megaways, Extra Chilli,  Buffalo King, and Great Rhino. Others are fresh creations built just for this type of game.

If you are one of the few players in just-opening markets who have not tried these games yet, hold onto your seats. Many are extremely volatile and have built-in enhancements that can change the way you play the game.

Pragmatic Play’s Great Rhino Megaways offers an optional additional bet (about 25% premium) that will double your odds of hitting a feature trigger. You can also buy free spins instead (about 100x stake but varies with the game choice).

We bought the feature on this game and got 4 scatters. From there, you can choose your own risk and reward potential (volatility). The choices in this game were:

  • 15 free games with an increasing win multiplier starting at 1x
  • 10 free with the multiplier starting at 5x
  • 5 games starting at 10x
  • Mystery  - we got  15 starting  @ 1x

During the bonus play, winning spins increase the multiplier by 1x but null spins do not start it over or lower the multiplier so each subsequent win is simply worth more than the last. Matching symbols including wilds along the horizontal extra reel on top of the game can create phenomenal wins.

In the next game, we started out with a 10x multiplier and repeated that bet 3 times for a cumulative loss of one enhanced stake. So we tried 10 spins starting with a 5x multiplier - win or lose. The end result after five feature buys was just about evens - which is not bad for a high risk/high reward - go big or go home type of game. In fact, a fairly rare result.

Some of the other Megaways titles here currently  include 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways with Firepot from Microgaming Studio Partner, Buck Stakes;

  • Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways
  • Bonanza
  • Buffalo King Megaways
  • Dragon Match Megaways
  • Fu Fortunes Megaways
  • Joyful Joker Megaways™
  • Madame Destiny Megaways
  • Magic Merlin Megaways
  • Morgana Megaways

Jackpot slots

We count over two-dozen progressive jackpot games with titles like Aurora Wilds, Juicy Joker Mega Moolah, Playboy Gold Jackpots, and iSoftBet’s Basic Instinct to name a few.

While your chances of winning a big progressive jackpot are very low, your chances are just as good as anybody else’s and you certainly can’t win if you don’t play. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play progressives in fun mode - but - once you register an account you’ll have access to the games.

Bonuses and Promotions

As mentioned earlier, when we visited the site there were no sign-up offers or any other casino bonus listings we could find. We also didn’t find any section for bonus terms. In the general terms and conditions, there is a section titled “General Bonus Rules”.

Deep down in the bedrock, we find terms 13.41-66 inclusive. We’ll pick out the important highlights.

Wagering requirements are 40x the value of the deposit bonus. Players have 60 days to meet rollover. All types of games can be played unless otherwise specified in the specific bonus, including live roulette. All slots are weighted at 100%, scratch card, and arcade games at 20%, and all other games at 10%.

You’ll need to zero out your account or contact customer service between bonuses or existing wagering requirements will apply to the new deposit.

There is no obvious maximum bet per spin, per hand, or per round except that no bet can be larger than the initial deposit until wagering requirements have been met.

No deposit and free spin houses have their own rules including wagering requirements (ranges from 15-60) and max cashout where applicable. Please see specific terms if you play with “free” funds.

Banking and Customer Service

Casino banking is not mentioned in the Cash-Out Terms and Conditions - which are all draconian sports-related terms that should not ever apply to casino gaming. Complete terms and conditions are available to download in PDF format.

Like anywhere else, documents will need to be verified prior to cashing out.

Deposit levels for most methods are reasonable and responsible with the highest possible instant deposit limit available through Trustly.

Maximum withdrawal limits are low, even for Trustly at €2,000/$2,000. No transaction fees are listed on the payments page. Pending times are listed as 72 hours for casino-side processing with eWallets and Paysafe withdrawals are processed instantly afterward. Card withdrawals, bank wires, and Trustly payments can take an additional 106 days to be completed on their end.

Customer service

Live chat, email, and telephone support is provided. International support in English is provided 7 days a week from 9 am until 10 pm CET. Local language support is available on weekdays until 5 pm.

Pitfalls

  • No slots welcome bonus listed
  • Low daily cashout limit
  • No published loyalty scheme or cashback program
  • Max daily, weekly, monthly win limit (€15k/€20k/€25,000)
  • Sports/Casino wallets are not integrated (transfer funds back and forth)
  • No responsible gambling dashboard (6-mo CS-assisted self-exclusion)

Many sportsbooks and hybrids apply a maximum amount that can be won on sports bets. That’s understandable, you don’t want to be betting at a place where the book can be broken. However, Winmasters specifically applies this same rule to slots, tables, and card game winnings.

This rule alone is enough to not venture a stake on progressive jackpot slots. There is no specific mention of any jackpot or other large winnings not being subject to the win limit or daily cashout limits. Moreover, they will only pay out progressives once they have received the funds from the provider (11.1.6)

The Final Word

Winmasters Casino offers players a great variety of betting opportunities from sports and live matches to slots and live dealer gambling games.

From our desk in Canada, we found games from most of the top online providers as well as some that are not so easy to find. Synot, Genesis, Tom Horn, and Gamevy are among them. EGT games, many of them almost perfectly emulating NOVOMATIC titles, are also included via Euro Games subsidiary Amusnet’s Maltese license.

The site is currently available in English, Magyar, and Deutch with local language customer support on weekdays.

Banking is straightforward and the terms are spelled out well. However, some players with impulse control problems might be tempted to reverse a withdrawal during the 72-hour pending period. No onboard responsible gambling tools are available to prevent this.

Bonuses and promotions for slots are not evident on the website but terms and conditions exist so they are probably offered on an ongoing basis.

I didn’t go back through the history of changes to the terms and conditions but some sections seem to be sports terms that have been modified for other types of gambling. One example would be the “maximum win limits” term that applies to slots et al. It’s unusual. But in the final analysis, it is fine to have a term like this as long as gamblers are aware of it from the outset. It is not VIP-player-friendly so high rollers beware. 

The average player should not be affected by “win limits” of  €15.000 per day, €20.000 per week, or €25,000 per month. However, a lack of clarity regarding jackpots of any sort, especially progressive jackpots - along with the fact that no specific daily/weekly/monthly cashout limit exclusions were found for jackpot wins, I can’t suggest playing progressive slots without a written assurance from management on how you would be paid.

All in all, players in many regulated jurisdictions are offered a safe and secure gambling space. Gamblers in certain markets such as Greece and Romania may be redirected to specific domains that will have geo-specific terms and conditions. Those operations may also be on a different platform, such as EveryMatrix.
