Bet Maximus Sister Sites 2024

THE BET MAXIMUS SISTER SITES ARE NOT COVERED BY A UK GAMBLING COMMISSION LICENCE. 

Goldwin Casino

Goldwin Casino

The company that operates the Bet Maximus sister sites is called GLD Group B.V., and this site is called Goldwin Casino. That’s a pretty clear sign that Goldwin Casino is the flagship site of this relatively small casino network, and that idea is reflected in the popularity of the casino. Goldwin Casino is a fairly well-known international casino, and comes piled high with bonuses and other perks for the discerning gambler. Unusually for a Curacao-based casino, Goldwin Casino will allow you to make withdrawals using your normal debit card, which is a plus. Those withdrawals won’t necessarily happen quickly, though, so perhaps it’s not a great choice of casino for those who like to collect their winnings quickly. You’ll at least have someone to speak to you while you’re waiting, though – Goldwin Casino provides telephone-based customer support as well as the usual email and live chat.

West Casino

West Casino

West Casino is the lesser-known of the three casinos on this operator’s platform, so we guess that makes it the runt of the Bet Maximus sister sites litter. It’s only a small litter, though, with a mere three casinos on the network, so coming third out of three isn’t necessarily a huge problem. West Casino went offline for a time shortly after Bet Maximus was launched, but it was back online before long. Perhaps that was a result of popular demand. The strengths of the casino include a big welcome package and fast customer service, but it lacks table games and general depth in its iGaming portfolio when you compare it to Goldwin Casino. In the case of West Casino and all the other casinos on the GLD Group B.V. network, we have to take issue with the fact that they allow sign-ups from UK-based players despite not having a licence to do so.

Bet Maximus Review 2024

In case you can’t tell from the helmet in the logo and the vaguely Latin name, Bet Maximus is an online casino with a Roman gladiatorial theme. The AI-generated text that appears in the casino’s “About Us” section is rich with the theme, but graphical references to it are few and far between. That’s at least partly down to how much iGaming content there is at the casino. It’s the newest addition to its platform, having first appeared as a replacement for West Casino before West Casino was revived and relaunched alongside it. Let’s see how it measures up.

Bet Maximus sister sites homepage

Bet Maximus Welcome Offers

Bet Maximus tries to keep new players engaged for as long as possible with its welcome promotion. New players can claim a 100% matched deposit up to £200 on their first deposit, followed by a 70% bonus up to £300 and a 200% bonus up to £200 again for a possible £700 in bonus cash. The terms and conditions of the bonuses aren’t made clear, but consulting the full terms and conditions of the casino reveals that the wagering requirement is x35. The minimum qualifying deposit is £20 each time.

If you don’t want to take the matched deposits, you could instead claim 200 free spins on deposit one, 150 free spins on deposit two, and 300 with deposit three. You’d still have to clear the same wagering requirements with any winnings from those spins, and the same minimum qualifying deposit still applies.

Ongoing Promotions

For long-term rewards, Bet Maximus offers a loyalty scheme with six theme-specific tiers, beginning at “Recruit” and ending at “Emperor.” At each stage, players receive a bonus, some free spins, instant cash, a “treasure chest” and an unspecified further bonus. The specifics of these rewards aren’t given, and the casino doesn’t tell us anything about how to get from one rank to the next. There’s also a series of “Achievements” that can be obtained for prizes, but they’re currently listed as “Coming Soon,” with no further information.

The Bet Maximus rewards system is almost a bonus-free zone, but there are extra bonuses for almost every day of the week. Players can claim up to one hundred free spins on Mondays, a further two hundred and fifteen on Tuesdays, and an exclusive “Weekly Royal Offer” (contents unspecified) on Wednesdays. All free spins are worth double on Thursdays, and there’s a matched deposit available on Fridays. Saturdays come with another one hundred free spins, and Sunday is a “power play” day with matched deposits available for every deposit a player makes on the day.

Pros and Cons of Bet Maximus

Pros: Bet Maximus offers a strong customer support package, with three ways to get in touch with the casino. There are well over two thousand slots here, plus plenty of other games in other categories, and the casino is far from short of bonuses. There’s a lot to do, and a lot to be entertained by.

Cons: While we understand the value of the daily and weekly bonuses at Bet Maximus, the Rewards scheme is a mystery to us because of the lack of information that the website provides. Withdrawal terms aren’t clear, and it seems that fees may apply to withdrawals in some circumstances. By far and away the casino’s worst offence is that it claims to have a licence that it doesn’t actually hold.

Top Games at Bet Maximus

We’ve given Bet Maximus credit for the quality of its iGaming portfolio already, but let’s break it down a little. Crash games are becoming popular all over the online casino scene these days, and Bet Maximus has plenty of them. It also offers virtual sports betting (but not real sports betting, curiously), live casino games, including card tables and game shows, lottery games, and plenty more. Despite the “bet” in its name, though, the true focus of Bet Maximus is slots. You’ll find the biggest and best names in its slots collection right in the middle of its homepage.

While Bet Maximus works with several dozen providers, it’s especially fond of slots by Pragmatic Play and Play’n Go, both of which are giant names. The six slots that appear in the “Recommended” section of the Bet Maximus homepage all come from those two providers, with Big Bass: Day at the Races in first place. If you don’t like that strange offshoot of the Big Bass family, you might instead opt for Big Bass Splash, which is in third place. The other Pragmatic Play slots game in the top six is Wolf Gold, which is an all-time classic. The three Play’n Go slots are Book of Dead, Legacy of Dead and Rise of Merlin. One of those things is not like the other in terms of popularity and reputation – we’re not sure what Rise of Merlin did to get “Recommended status.

Withdrawal Processing and Support

It’s within this category that we begin to develop concerns about Bet Maximus. It claims in its taskbar header to be a crypto casino, and the Bitcoin logo appears in its footer. However, there’s no discussion of Bitcoin in the casino’s withdrawal information. Instead, the casino offers Mastercard or Visa debit, followed by e-wallets held with Neteller, EcoPayz or Skrill. If you’re looking for alternatives, you can use Zimpler, Trustly, or old-fashioned bank transfers. Your withdrawal method has to match your deposit method. Fees might apply in some circumstances (but we’re not told which circumstances or how big or small fees might be), and no timescales are offered for the transfer of funds. This is all too woolly for our liking, and the situation with Bitcoin and crypto is confusing.

Customer Support and Licensing

This category is a classic good news/bad news situation. All the good news relates to customer service. 24-hour live chat is provided, and players can also call the casino on +498007244103. If neither of those methods work for you, you could email the casino on [email protected] instead. The bad news is about licensing. The casino carries the logo of Gaming Curacao in its footer, which clearly suggests that it holds a licence through the regulator. However, if you click the logo and follow it through to the Gaming Curacao website, you’ll see that the licence isn’t valid, and that the casino is neither licensed nor authorised by Gaming Curacao. As such, we believe Bet Maximus and all the Bet Maximus sister sites to be unlicensed.

Bet Maximus – The Verdict

Bet Maximus belongs to a casino network company that’s had a hit with Goldwin Casino. If Bet Maximus was what it appears to be and represents itself as, it could have been another hit. Instead, there are big problems here. Claiming to hold a licence that you don’t have is the worst thing a casino can do in terms of bad faith, and the fact that crypto withdrawals don’t appear to be supported despite the casino’s claims to deal in crypto is confusing. UK players shouldn’t play here because of the casino’s licensing situation, but until the issues we’ve identified are resolved, neither should anybody else.

What are players saying about Bet Maximus?

Here are our condensed / reader’s digest summaries of recent player reviews of Bet Maximus.

  • 12-Apr-2024 by Felix:
    Before playing at a new casino, always check for reviews. Bet Maximus has taught me this lesson. I ended up losing a lot without gaining anything in return. The way the casino operates doesn’t sit right with me. – source: Trustpilot
  • 04-Apr-2024 by Sir Schewi:
    Bet Maximus offers a manageable RTP rate but nothing to gain. As it’s a successor to West Casino, expect payout delays of at least a week. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this casino; there are far better options available. – source: Trustpilot
  • 12-Mar-2024 by Sebum:
    Since Bet Maximus took over West Casino, it’s been a disappointment. They didn’t retain any existing limits or loyalty levels, and now settings must be managed through live chat or email. Popular game providers like Netent are gone; you can’t play favourites like Starburst anymore. Even trying to close my account has been a hassle, only possible through email. After several deposits, the returns are laughably low compared to before. It’s now a flop. – source: Trustpilot
  • 30-Jan-2024 by Brennecke:
    Top casino, fun to play here. – source: Trustpilot
  • 18-Jul-2023 by Demfe:
    I had a bad start with Bet Maximus; I made a deposit which was not credited to my account. I will post updates on this situation if I ever get any. – source: Trustpilot
