Since being founded in 2013, Guts Casino has exploded in popularity.
This is probably because they offer 2 hour withdrawal processing, 24 hour live
support, and a huge selection of games. It is somewhat rare for a site
offer poker, casino games and sports betting all at once, and we love to see it.
The casino games are provided by industry leaders such as Netent, Micrograming,
Betsoft, IGT and Leander Gaming.

Rating Breakdown

Game Variety

We would give this a 6/5 if we could. They have a wide selection of
games including poker, table games, video poker, slot machines, sports betting,
and even scratch-off tickets. There is also an awesome live dealer option
which allows us to have a real human dealing the game and talking to us without
having to leave the house.

Banking

The only real complaint in this category would be the small amount of banking
options. The main thing that stands out is that there is no bitcoin
option. They boast all over their website that they have 2 hour withdrawal
processing though, which is pretty insane. This proves that they really do
keep player funds segregated and are a legit online casino.

Bonuses

Guts gives players all kinds of incentives to play frequently. This is
true not only in the casino section of the site but also in the poker section.
The sportsbook section is not as plush with incentives, but it still has some
worth playing for. There is a promotion for everyone, including a VIP tier
that is not very hard to climb. We love the Guts Squad promotion which
handpicks players to be in their exclusive VIP club with amazing benefits if
they play enough. All terms and conditions apply.

Customer Support

We had no trouble contacting support through the live chat within seconds,
and they answered our questions thoroughly. The reason for the 4 star
rating is that it is extremely tough to find their other contact info on the
website. They should not require the player to download the software and
sign-up before they can email or call the site.

User Interface

Our main complaints would be that the poker table graphics look pretty old
and shabby, with the cards also making it tough to tell the difference between a
club and a spade. The slots look vibrant and exciting though, as they
should. We are sure that the user interface will please most players and
will not hinder anyone’s entertainment, but we felt that a 5 star rating was not
warranted.

Sportsbook

This site offers a top-notch sportsbook. The betting slips are
straightforward and easy to use and the list of markets is substantial. Not only
can you bet on sports like football, tennis, and basketball, but you will also
have a chance to bet on the more obscure sports like floorball, snooker, or
squash. One sport you will not find on their list, though, is horseracing. There
is a huge betting market for horseracing, but this casino chooses not to cover
it. This is the main reason why I couldn’t give them a perfect score.

Esports

Whenever I see a site offering an esports section, I know they are dedicated
to staying up to date on the latest trends. That being said, since this is a
newer addition to the site, I wasn’t surprised to see a rather limited market of
only 5 esports. What I did appreciate, though, is the variety of bets they
offered on the esports available. You won’t be limited to bets on who will win
the match, as several prop style bets are typically offered as well. This makes
betting on esports at Guts a little more interesting and it gave them a little
boost to their overall score for this section.

Overall

We feel this is a fair rating as Guts Casino has a lot of good things going
for it, but they also have a few minor flaws. It would be almost
impossible not to find the game that you are looking to play, and with the
promotions and lightning fast cash-outs, it seems tough to not have a good time
gambling here.

Restricted Countries

Guts is regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, and licensed out of Curucao
eGaming. Unfortunately, they do not serve many countries, including the
USA. Below is a list of all of the countries where Guts is banned, as given to
us by their extremely helpful 24/7 support team.

Game Selection

If Guts Casino has 99 problems, game selection certainly won’t be one.
They have an exhausting list of casino games, a sportsbook, AND a highly
functional poker room. There is even an option in some games to play with
a live dealer where another human actually deals the cards on camera and
interacts with us. Let’s take a look at each specific game type
individually and see what there is to work with here.

Sportsbook

Before I talk about all of the wonderful aspects of the Guts sportsbook
section, I want to point out two drawbacks I noticed. First, I just couldn’t
overlook their lack of a horseracing market. Horseracing is one of my favorite
markets to bet on, and I know I’m not alone in saying that. Adding this to their
list is something I hope to see them do in the near future.

Another drawback to their sportsbook is that the odds are all displayed in
decimal format and this site does not convert those odds for you. So, if you
prefer to see your odds in a different format, you are going to have to convert
the odds yourself or use an odds convertor tool. This just seems like
unnecessary extra work to me.

Okay, now that I have the negatives out of the way, let’s focus on the
positives. One thing that stood out to me as soon as I clicked on their
sportsbook was how easy it was to navigate through. All of their sports are
clearly displayed on the left-hand site of the screen. Once you click on your
team and bet of choice, your betting slip will appear on the right-hand side of
the screen. From there you can input your stake and see your potential earnings.
Then, you are just one click away from placing your bet. It’s as simple as that.

The sportsbook at Guts Casino has a great selection of sports to bet on. They
cover all of the major sports in addition to some of the less popular ones. I
have listed all of them for you below.

  • Football
  • Ice Hockey
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Handball
  • American Football
  • Bandy
  • Baseball
  • Biathlon
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Cross Country
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • Floorball
  • Golf
  • Motor Sports
  • Rugby
  • Ski Jumping
  • Snooker
  • Squash
  • Table Tennis
  • Volleyball

Some of these sports even come with live betting options, making it possible
to bet on a game while it is taking place. This really adds excitement to the
betting experience.

What else adds excitement? Special promotions! Guts Casino offers 2 special
promotions exclusively for their sportsbook users.

The Sunday Saver

Since football seems to be this site’s main focus when it comes to their
sportsbook, it’s only natural that they would offer a football-only promotion.
This promotion is available every Sunday in 2018. Once you opt-in for this
promotion, every time there is a late goal in the match (86th minute and so on),
Guts will refund your first losing in-play bet up to $10. Although this is not a
large bonus, every little bit helps.

Cash Out Your Bet

This promotion works on football, basketball, tennis, and ice hockey bets
from the LiveBet section. Guts gives you the opportunity to cash out your bets
early if you think things aren’t going to pan out the way you thought. You won’t
receive the same amount of winnings if you cash out early, but you won’t lose
all of your potential winnings either. This is a great option for bettors that
start second-guessing their decisions and want to fix their previous betting
mistakes.

Esports

I was excited to see that Guts Casino offers Esports betting options, even
though they are somewhat limited.

At Guts, you can bet on these esports.

  • Counter-Strike
  • Dots
  • League of Legends
  • Overwatch
  • Starcraft

One thing I would like to point out is that this site does not have a
dedicated esports section. Instead, their esports are integrated into their
sportsbook section. Many sites choose to set up their esports betting options in
this way, but I just wanted to draw your attention to this, so you know where to
go to place your bets.

Besides being able to bet on who will win the match, this site also offers
prop style bets on the first kill, kill amounts, individual map winners, and
more. Exactly what type of bets are offered varies between each esport.

This section could be improved if they added more esports to bet on and if
they started showing live streams of the matches on their site. I can’t wait to
see how this portion of their site improves as the years goes on, since I do see
a lot of potential here.

Promotions

Terms and conditions apply on all bonuses and promotions.

Casino Promotions

The Guts casino has a total of 4 casino specific promotions to offer.
These offers are known as the Welcome Bonus, the Double Deal Monday, the
Thursday Triple and the Live Casino Cashback Bonus. We will now dive
deeper and see what these are all about.

Welcome Bonus

The Welcome Bonus is fairly straightforward and lasts through the first 4
deposits that are made. The first deposit is a 100% bonus up to $100.
The second deposit includes a 50% bonus up to $50. The third deposit
involves a 25% bonus up to $50. The fourth deposit features a whopping
200% bonus up to $100, and this is an interesting way to incite players to do
multiple deposits.

We highly recommend depositing 4 times so that you can claim this final
generous level of deposit bonus. All of these deposits come with 25 free
spins on the Starburst slot, and the minimum deposit is $20 to be a part of
these bonuses.

Monday Bonus

The Double Deal Monday bonus is a simple Monday-only bonus that gives us up
to a 40% bonus on our deposit for up to 40$. In addition to this, we will
receive 15 free spins on the Leprechaun Goes to Hell slot! This offer is
not valid if you already have the Welcome Bonus in action.

Thursday Bonus

The Thursday Triple is a promotion that requires us to deposit and wager the
same amount in order to receive the bonus. If we deposit between 20 and 49
dollars, we get 10 free spins per day on the game of the week for the following
3 days. If we deposit 50 dollars, we get 20 free spins per day, which adds
up to 60 free spins total! This offer is also prohibited if there is an
active welcome bonus running.

Live Casino Bonus

The Live Casino Cashback Bonus is a bonus that is not automatic and requires
us to email them at
[email protected] in order to opt-in. This bonus will take
effect every Monday and will credit our account with 10% of our losses or 5% of
our wins from the previous Friday, Saturday and Sunday’s play. This means
that if we win 100$ during those 3 days, they will put 5$ extra into the
account, and if we lose $100, they will put 10$ into our account. The only
way to get this bonus money is by playing the Live Dealer games.

Poker Promotions

The Guts poker room has an astounding 9 promotions listed. We will go
through each one of them so that they are easy to understand. We recommend
picking a few that work for you, not trying to do all of them at once.

Welcome Bonus

The $1000 Welcome Bonus is fairly self-explanatory, and is given to everyone
who registers on the site. If we deposit $1000, we receive a $1000 bonus. The
minimum deposit is $20. For every $25 we clear in rake, we receive $5, and the
bonus is released in increments of $5 as well. This bonus completely
disappears after 60 days so be sure to finish it on time to claim all of the
free money.

King of Hearts

The King of Hearts promotion rewards $5 any player who shows his cards at the
end of a cash game hand and has a flush in the suit of hearts, whether they won
the hand or not. If we show a Royal Flush in hearts at showdown, we will
receive $500. This will continue until they have paid out a total of
$50,000 and then the promotion will end.

$2000 Achievement Race

The $2000 Achievement Race is like a scavenger hunt with a weekly leaderboard
involved to keep track of how many achievements have been done. The top 10
players on the leaderboard get to split a total of $2000, with 1st place getting
$700 of it. Some examples of achievements that can earn us leaderboard
points are “Get dealt pocket aces 250 times”, or “Be the first to register for
30 Sit and Go Tournaments”. This offers a nice break from the usual sole
purpose of just making money, and turns it into a game inside of a game.

MPNPT Tallinn

The MPN Poker Tour Tallinn packages are given to those who win the satellite
tournaments to the event. This tournament in Estonia will be a 150 Euro buy-in
with a 150,000 Euro prize pool guaranteed. The package includes entry to
this tournament, entry to another side event worth 110 Euros, 4 nights stay at
the local Hilton hotel, and 300 Euros towards travel and expenses. This all
looks great except for the travel and expenses which is clearly not enough money
for people who do not already live near Tallinn.

Fish Party

Fish Party SNGs are simply Sit and Go poker tournaments with 3 people that
have a random jackpot attached to them for the prize pool. This jackpot
can be anywhere from 2 to 5000 times the buy-in amount. This adds a little
bit of fun to the mundane Sit and Go grind, and allows for an occasional big
score that is not usually possible for Sit and Go players.

Bad Beat Jackpot

Bad Beat Jackpot is an optional promotion that gives us insurance if we lose
a hand with quad 2s or better. After opting in, the site will take an
extra $0.02 rake per hand from us to go towards the jackpot. The player with the
losing hand receives 40% of the jackpot, the winning hand receives 20%, the rest
of the table splits up 10% and everyone playing the same stakes splits 10%.
The remaining 20% goes to start the next jackpot.

New Player Tournaments

New Player Tournaments are great for novice players and there are two of them
happening every week. One is a free tournament on Wednesdays at 19:00 CET
with a $1000 prize pool that is only for players who registered in the last 7
days. The other New Player tournament starts 2 hours later, costs 1$
to get into, and comes with a $500 guaranteed prize pool. This tournament is
also strictly forbidden for people who have an account older than 7 days.

Loyalty Program

Guts loyalty program is a promotion that rewards frequent play in the form of
rakeback. The higher our loyalty level, the more money our rewards points
can be traded in for. Silver loyalty level enjoys 10% rakeback, Gold is
15%, Platinum is 20% and Diamond is 30%. We like to see this support for
regular players, and we recommend going after the Diamond level to maximize
profits. To reach this level, we need to clear 3000 loyalty points per
month.

Poker Elite

Guts Poker Elite is a players club that requires us to earn 10,000 loyalty
points every month in order to be a member. Paying 1$ in rake equals 10
loyalty points. The perks of this club include a $500 reload bonus every
month, and tickets to exclusive free tournaments with added prizes. This
month, elite members get to battle each other in a free tournament for an MPNPT
Tallinn package to first place, and cash prizes are given to the rest of the
final table.

Other Promotions

Gut Squad

This promotion is a strange one, but we like to see these types of innovative
ideas. It is also their only promotion that involves both the casino and
the poker room. Instead of giving players a goal to shoot for, the site
basically handpicks whoever they want to be on the team. In order to
choose members of the squad, they take a look at the total amount wagered or
deposited, frequency of logins, and the number of different types of games you
play.

Benefits for this squad are huge and it is almost like a site sponsorship
deal. They offer priority payouts, an anniversary bonus, a personal VIP
support member, tons of other bonuses and special trips such as concerts or
sporting events.

Banking Options

While the number of options for depositing and withdrawing money are not
plentiful, the site boasts a 2 hour processing time for any and all withdrawals.
This makes it one of the fastest processing sites in the world, and demands some
respect. They also keep player funds segregated from their operational
funds, so that there is no chance that player funds are mishandled. The
different banking methods offered by Guts Casino are listed below.

Deposit Methods

  • Paysafe Card
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Entropay
  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Sofort Uberweisung
  • Zimpler

Withdrawal Methods

  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Entropay
  • Visa
  • Zimpler
  • Sofort Uberweisung

Customer Service Options

We looked around for quite some time for a “Contact Us” page or something
similar on their website, and we were not successful. There is only the
“Chat Now” button at the bottom of the page.

They do, however, give an actual street address in the “About Us” section of
the website, which is a checkmark in the trustworthiness column. It is
strange that on this same About Us page it says that we can email or call them
as support options, but it does not specify how we can do this anywhere on the
website. After asking Live Chat we found out that the support email is
simply [email protected]

When we clicked the Chat Now button to contact support, we were prompted to
enter our email address, and pick what category our question falls under.
We were then talking to a support person within seconds, and they answered every
question with ease.

For those people who really hate computers (how are you reading this?) and
are looking to mail them a letter, their street address is:

GB Buildings, Penthouse, Level 4, Water Street

Ta’Xbiex, XBX 1301, Malta

Overview

In closing, we are very happy with what we see Guts Casino doing after only 4
years in operation. They offer a rare combination of sports betting,
casino games, AND poker games, which is an amazing addition to the industry.
Their promotions are extensive, their cashouts are quick, and their game
selection is enormous. If they wanted to improve at all, they could simply
add bitcoin to the banking options, make available their contact email and phone
number, and improve their poker software’s graphics.
