Review of CasinoBud
Casinobud describes itself as 'the first online casino where you can play together!' The idea is that you can either play the games alone, as you would at any other online casino, or you can participate in a Multiple Play session and enjoy the featured game with other players. We aren't convinced that this communal playing format hasn't already been explored by other venues (there are certainly other venues that offer community slots), but it isn't a particularly common facility, so we're very pleased to see it available here. And there's plenty more to get excited about at Casinobud, as you'll soon discover.
Casinobud Licenses and Responsible Gaming
Casinobud is owned and operated by a company called The Mill Adventure Limited. This is a company registered in Malta, and Casinobud is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.
This venue states that it is 'committed to creating a fun, innovative and responsible gaming environment.' Its Responsible Gaming page offers plenty of information that will help you to enjoy its offering in a safe and sensible way. A series of questions help you identify if you are gambling safely, and there is further advice - as well as various limit tools and links to other organizations - for those who might benefit from them.
Casinobud Game Selection and Products
There are more than 2,000 games that you can play solo or together at Casinobud. These are from some of the biggest developers in the industry, so you can expect to enjoy titles from Play'n GO, NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, Evolution Gaming, Red Tiger and many more. Games are sorted into several popular categories, for your convenience, as follows:
Most Popular is a category that puts the spotlight on the games that are proving most popular at any given time. The range showcased here will obviously change from week to week, if not day to day. At the time of us conducting this review, featured games included Reactoonz, Fire in the Hole, Extra Chilli, Book of Dead and Rise of Olympus.
Slots are more plentiful here than any other type of game, which is usually the case at most online casinos. You'll find every type of slot you can think of here, from the most traditional three-reel games to - at the opposite extreme - those with more reels than rows. Some of the titles that caught our eye as we browsed the range available included Starburst Xxxtreme, Aztec Twist, Wolf Gold and Piggy Riches Megaways.
Table Games fans are also well catered for at Casinobud. You can play scores of versions of Blackjack and Roulette, as well as Craps, Sic Bo, Baccarat, Dragon Tiger and more. Live Casino games are showcased here, but they can also be viewed under their own category. As well as the traditional offerings, you will also be able to play game show titles such as Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live and Deal or No Deal.
Video Poker games aren't quite as numerous here as the other types already mentioned, but you will still have a fairly good range to choose from. The available options cover all of the most popular games, including Jacks or Better, Double Bonus and Deuces Wild.
Mobile Games at Casinobud
Casinobud is a nicely designed venue, and it is also one that performs flawlessly even when you play on a tablet or mobile device. This is, of course, largely thanks to the games all being mobile-compatible right out of the box, but navigation and user-friendliness also plays a part, and Casinobud serves mobile players very well indeed.
Casinobud Welcome Package and Promotions
At this point, we would normally outline some juicy welcome package that awaits anyone who is thinking about joining the casino under review. Sadly, that won't be happening today because there are no permanent welcome offers that we've been able to track down. Given that casinos tend to shout about their offers, we've concluded that there aren't any to be had right now. Of course, that might change in the future, but at the time of writing, you'll have to look elsewhere for a welcome bonus.
What this venue does have is a VIP loyalty program. This will give you points as you play, and you will be able to redeem those points for rewards. The VIP program has multiple levels, so you'll also have the satisfaction of progressing through them.
There are also quite a few tournaments and competitions that you will be able to get involved in when you play here. Some of these have significant prize pools up for grabs, so maybe welcome bonuses aren't so essential after all.
Casinobud Customer Support
Customer support can be obtained via a Live Chat interface, but you'll need to be signed into your account (or provide your name and email address) to use it. This makes sense, as it allows the support staff to get back to you should you get disconnected for any reason.
Casinobud Payment Options and Withdrawal Speed
Deposits and withdrawals are easy to initiate here. You can make a deposit using VISA, MasterCard, ecoPayz, Instadebit and iDebit, to name just a few of the options, and most methods will have your cash in your account within a matter of seconds or minutes.
As is the case at all venues, withdrawals can take longer to process. The length of time will depend on the method used, but in all cases, you should have your winnings in your bank account in a few working days at the most.
Casinobud: Our Verdict
Casinobud is a well-rounded venue that does a lot of things right. It is nicely designed, safe and legal for Canadian players and has an impressive selection of over 2,000 games. What sets it apart, however, is its focus on giving you the ability to play games as part of a group. You can still play games as an individual, of course, but if you fancy taking your community spirit for a spin, you'll have ample opportunity to do so. We think that this social side of online casino gaming will be very big in the future, so why not get involved now and see what you think?
