Before you can play for real money you must make a deposit. In order to start playing online, you will need to purchase a minimum of $30 worth of casino chips.

You may play the games in FREE money mode for as long as you like. If you are unfamiliar with any of our games, we encourage you to learn them and get familiar with them by playing with fun money.

For how long will my fun account be active?

Fun accounts never expire. You are welcome to remain a fun player for as long as you like, but then you’ll be missing out on winning CASH jackpots.

Can I purchase more fun money casino chips?

Yes. Click on the "Cashier" button in the Lobby, or within any game. Click the "Set Balance" button inside the cashier, enter the balance you would like and click "Set Balance". In fun money mode, you may set your balance to whatever you like.

You may, of course, withdraw your money at any time. Malibu Club Casino offers several methods for withdrawals and the details are listed on our cashier page.

Reversal of a Withdrawal

If you request a withdrawal and change your mind before it is processed, you may reverse the withdrawal and continue playing with those credits. If you have withdrawals that can be reversed they will show up in the cashier when you try to make a deposit. You cannot make a deposit while you have withdrawals pending because it is much easier to do a reversal instead.

To prevent fraud and abuse, from time to time customers may be required to supply proof of identity, copies of their credit cards, a signed history of their transactions or other documentation for verification and security purposes. If you are asked to verify your identity, you will only be asked once.

ADDING MORE GAMES
How do I download more games?

A selection of some of the most popular games is included in your initial download. To download more free games, just keep playing at the casino and the rest of the games will download in the background without interfering with your play. If there is a specific game that you want to play, but it is not immediately available, click on the game icon. This game will begin downloading immediately. You can close the pop-up box that appears and continue playing other games while you wait for your chosen game to be downloaded. You can monitor the download progress by watching the progress bar that will appear across the game icon. Please note that the download time is dependent on the speed of your Internet connection.

Why does it take so long to download new games?

The speed of your downloads depend on your Internet connection. Players with dial-up connections may have to wait several minutes for a game to download while those with high-speed connections will only need to wait seconds.

The size of the games varies, and some games will take longer than others to download. Video slots and i-slots are the largest games and they will take longest. The rest of the games should download in under a minute.

Once a game has been downloaded it is saved on your computer and doesn't need to be downloaded again unless it is updated.

What if I get an error while downloading further games?

If you encounter any errors while downloading games the software will retry several times. If it is unsuccessful and displays an error message please contact customer support.

Malibu Club Casino does not allow players to register credit cards of which they are not signatories. These measures are taken to protect you, the player, and your credit cards and account.

Yes! One of Malibu Club Casino's highest priorities is security. To be able to provide the highest privacy available we use the SSL4 protocol with 128-bit encryption. The system allows the highest security and integrity for all the information that passes to and from our server.

These precautions prevent access by unauthorized third parties. Apart from regular reports, which are sent to our customers via email, we strongly recommend all our players to make the full use of the Transfer and Wagering histories available in the cashier.

GAME PLAY
What are my chances of winning?

The payouts of our games vary. All games results are determined by Rival's cryptographically secure random number generator which has been independently tested and confirmed to provide suitably random sequences of numbers. Independent auditors audit payouts from time to time. Depending on the game, the system may use a single deck or multiple decks that are shuffled before every wager.

What happens if I lose my connection to the gaming server?

If the gaming server received the bet it will be recorded and the result will be displayed after your Internet connection comes back. If the gaming server does not receive the bet you will either see the result of your previous bet or you will be asked to complete the unfinished bet.

Why do the slot wheels just keep spinning and don't stop?

This is caused by poor Internet performance. The results from the server are not reaching your computer so the slot wheels just keep spinning because they have not received the message telling them when and where to stop. If you close the program and run it again you will be refreshed to the last known position.

Why does the Roulette ball just keep spinning and doesn't stop?

This is caused by poor Internet performance. The results from the server are not reaching your computer, so the roulette ball just keeps spinning because they have not received the message telling them when and where to stop. If you close and run the program again, you will be refreshed to the last known position.

Why do the cards not flip over during a hand?

This is caused by a bad or slow Internet connection. The gaming server will hold the wager until it can resolve the bet.

How can I view exactly what cards have been dealt?

You may view your wagering history in the Cashier. Click "My Details" and "Wager History". Your complete wagering history is available right back to the day you signed up.

Promotions
What are promotions?

Promotions are a way for Malibu Club Casino to create value for its players. They are offered as incentives to deposit and play, as rewards for loyal players and even as gifts on special occasions. Promotions are typically offered as bonus money but can also be in the form of bonus comp points.

What are wagering requirements?

Promotions typically have wagering requirements associated with them. That means that there is a minimum amount of play required after claiming a promotion before you can withdraw your winnings. The amount you must play to meet the wagering requirements is a lot less than the average player would ordinarily play. Wagering requirements are typically completed in a couple hours of play (often much less) and the average player plays longer than that.

Why do certain table limits change when I receive a bonus?

You will find that certain table limits change once you have received a bonus. These limits are changed in order to prevent promotional abuse. This allows us to offer more lucrative promotions to our players.

When will they return to the regular limits?

The table limits will return to normal once you have initiated a successful withdrawal or your real money balance has less than one credit remaining, whichever comes first.

How do I receive a promotion?

To receive a promotion, you must claim it BEFORE making a deposit. To claim your bonus, simply click the 'claim now' icon found in the cashier. The promotion will instantly be added to your account.
