Guts Casino Review
Guts is without a doubt the flagship casino of MT SecureTrade Limited. Established in 2013, the casino has now been around for four years and it already has a reputation that is almost second to none. Their motto is “Why wait?”, and why indeed? You don’t even have to wait for your payouts very long – the top speed of receiving your money within two hours is remarked upon on just about any review page that has talked about Guts.
Providing games from over a dozen providers these days, Guts now offers over 1,000 games in its portfolio. An extensive live casino can be visited at all hours and punters can choose among 30,000 daily markets in the sportsbetting section.
Licensed in Malta and the UK, Guts also enjoys a reputation of being well regulated and very secure. Here you can have tons of fun and it’s all safe.
For those interested in joining Guts, a €300 welcome package awaits on the first four deposits. Especially enticing is the fact that free spins are always wagering-free at Guts and you can get plenty of them in the many promotions running here regularly.

Interestingly Guts hasn’t changed much, if anything, when it comes to their welcome package. It’s been the same for quite some time and we guess that has something to do with its popularity. At Guts you can lay your hands on a welcome package that offers bonuses and free spins on your first four deposits.
1. 100% up to €100 + 25 free spins on Starburst – use code GUTSB1
2. 50% up to €50 + 25 free spins on Starburst – use code GUTSB2
3. 25% up to €50 + 25 free spins on Starburst – use code GUTSB3
4. 200% up to €100 + 25 free spins on Starburst – use code GUTSB4
In order to receive the bonus it is imperative to use the bonus code. If you fail to do so, you won’t be able to claim the bonus at a later time. All bonuses need to be wagered 35 times before a withdrawal is possible. A bonus of 150% has to be wagered 40 times, however, and a 200% bonus needs to be wagered 45 times. Bonuses expire after 30 days.
As usual, not all games contribute equally to the wagering requirements:
- Slots* and other games: 100%
- “Classic slots”: 75%
- All Live Dealer Roulette and Blackjack: 10%
- All Live Dealer Baccarat and Casino Hold’em: 5%
- All table games and Video Poker: 0%
- *Blood Suckers, Kings of Chicago and 1429 Uncharted Seas: 50%
The good news is, free spins are always wagering free at Guts. But they need to be used within 48 hours upon credit, otherwise they will be removed.
|100% up to €100||35x||Welcome||GUTSB1||6 days|
|100 Free spins||35x||Free Spins||6 days|

Over 1,000 games from over a dozen providers
Guts is another one of those online casinos that has chosen to collect as many casino game providers as possible. Whilst they have by no means all available providers under one roof, they are certainly getting rather close.
You can find games here from Betsoft, Aristrocat, WMS, IGT, NetEnt, Microgaming, ELK Studios, Quickspin, Thunderkick, Play’n GO, Leander Gaming, NYX Gaming, Red Tiger, Genii and Yggdrasil Gaming. And Guts is adding new providers all the time, so your favourite might be available here soon as well, if it is not already.
At Guts you can therefore enjoy popular titles such as Bridesmaids, Game of Thrones, Taco Brothers, Hot as Hades, Royal Masquerade, King Colossus, Jimi Hendrix Online Slot, Tipsy Tourist and many, many more. The choice is certainly staggering and you’ll hardly know what to do with yourself with all the slots available.
Blackjack and Roulette each get their own section at Guts and in both you can find plenty of versions of each game. There are 18 games of each, in fact. Among the table games you can find Pai Gow, Craps, Baccarat, Red Dog and a number of Casino Poker Games. There are also over a dozen Video Poker games available.
And in the “other games” section you can find Bingo and Keno, racing games and some other fun games that defy classification. There’s definitely no such thing as boredom at Guts.
An extensive Live Casino selection
The Live Casino at Guts is bigger than most we’ve seen thus far. Often you’ll be happy to find a handful of Live Casino tables. Getting a dozen tables is already considered a luxury. But at Guts you’ll get to choose among 32 different casino tables. Some are catering to a very specific audience, because you can find a German Roulette table, for instance. And that, too, is a special thing to take note of, because language-specific tables are rare and usually only found at the biggest online casinos.
Needless to say that you can find Roulette, Baccarat, Blackjack and Casino Poker games here. The Live Casino at Guts will not leave you wanting for more. The tables are either provided by NetEnt or by Evolution Gaming, which means you get some of the best tables around.
A great selection of jackpot games
Guts offers all the jackpot games you could be looking for considering the providers available here. Microgaming, NetEnt and Betsoft progressive jackpots can be found here and some of them come with life-changing wins. Popular choices are:
- Hall of Gods
- Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis
- Mega Fortune
- Arabian Nights
- Mega Glam Life
- The Glam Life
- King Cashalot
Less life-changing are Betsoft’s jackpots. Favourites here are: At the Copa, A Night in Paris, Enchanted Greedy Goblins or It Came from Venus. Furthermore you can find Divine Fortune, Cosmic Fortune and Lucky Fairy among the more than 30 jackpots at Guts.
Plenty of sports and live betting opportunities
Guts added sports and live betting to its portfolio only a year into their existence. Most online casino either start as betting portals or only add sports betting several years after they established themselves firmly as good or even great online casinos. Guts expanded more quickly and they have done so successfully.
They now offer more than 30,000 markets every day on sports betting. A majority of those are available for European football, but Guts covers sports markets around the world. All your betting needs can be met in just one place, which is always advantageous.
There’s plenty of live betting available as well, of course. Just head to the live betting section and check out everything there. You’ll find it attractive and easy to navigate. You can even follow the action right there provided by some pretty great animations. Live streaming does not appear to be available at Guts, but this is pretty close.
24/7 live support by various means
The most important thing to note is that Guts’ customer service is available around the clock. You can open a live chat window at any time during the day and expect to receive a fairly quick response. When you do open the live chat window, you’ll be given some preliminary information that will be relevant at that time, but is subject to change, and you can choose which topic you want to talk about as well.
You can also send an email to Guts, if you so choose. A phone number does not appear to be available, at least none we could find quickly anywhere on the website. But usually you won’t really need to call, because live chat is the preferred contact method.
Before contacting the support team you can always browse the FAQ section. It’s comprehensive enough to cover most topics in advance, but more specific problems will have to be addressed by the support team.
Plenty of payment options available
In order to see which payment options are available to residents of certain countries, players will need to sign-up and login to their accounts. Only then is the cashier information visible. Beyond that you won’t find much information, which is not exactly ideal.
Since Guts does display the logos of their partners, we do know that Visa, MasterCard, zimpler, Neteller, Skrill, paysafecard, ecoPayz and other options are available for deposits. That also means we can count on Visa, Neteller and Skrill being available for withdrawals. The traditional bank transfer would be an option either way as well.
What we do know beyond that is that Guts has a reputation for some of the fastest payouts in the industry. After approval of a withdrawal request it can take a maximum of two hours before your money is in your account. That speed is usually reserved for eWallets, but it is impressive regardless.
Also, whilst all withdrawal methods come with a pre-imposed maximum withdrawal limit, there does not appear to be a withdrawal limit per week or per month that is imposed by Guts itself. The terms don’t make any mention of a limit here, but you can always contact customer service when in doubt.
Three licenses and RNG certified
Guts is one of the few online casinos and sportsbooks that comes with three different licenses. At home in Malta, the casino is, of course, licensed in Malta as well. Additionally they have a Curacao license, which is not overly important here, but adds to the feeling of security.
Finally, Guts also has a UK Gambling Commission license, which enables the casino to also operate remotely in the UK, one of the largest gambling markets in Europe.
There really should be no safety concerns with a casino this well regulated, but Guts also displays a RNG certificate, which means games here are regularly tested for the randomness. Fair play is thus ensured.
Guts even has a separate site for information regarding security and all is indeed well in that regard. Transactions are secured via SSL encryption and personal data remains personal.
No RTP information available
At least none is accessible. We could easily praise Guts to the moon and back, but this is one little thing that does bother us somewhat. Guts could and should do better here, if it can’t do better anywhere else.
It goes a long way towards ensuring transparency to simply publish the RTP report that surely must exist. Any online casino and sportsbook that is independently audited also receives an RTP report. It would be great, if customers would be able to find it on the Guts website as well. Alas, at this time that is not the case.
Simple, elegant and functional
Since its conception Guts has not changed very much. Its design has always been simple and elegant. Merely in terms of functionality there have been a few twists and tweaks here and there, just to improve things, but not to give them a major overhaul. That was simply not necessary.
Guts design is quite recognisable, which is certainly owed to the Guts logo as well. The background is a uniform black, highlights are set in bright red and the lettering is white. On the main casino page a changing banner informs about current promotions.
The sportsbook looks slightly boring in its uniform grey. We’ve seen more attractive sportsbooks, but it is functional, which is the main thing here. We actually find the live betting section more interesting to visit and much more attractive.
Navigation is also quite functional and user-friendly. You really can’t get lost here and all information is easily accessible.
A great mobile casino
The design of the desktop page continues on Guts mobile page. A separate mobile app is not available and it’s not necessary anyway. Visit the mobile page and you can choose to enter the sportsbook or the casino from the front page. You can always change to the other section, of course.
The design is more compact than the desktop page, which is only to be expected. But you get pretty much full functionality. Navigation is easy here, too, and the page loads fairly quickly as long as you have a decent connection.
You can play just about any game that is available as a touch version here and you get access to all parts of the casino here as well. The mobile page is pretty great, especially if you prefer to play on the go. You’ll hardly ever find the need to access Guts on your computer, if you don’t want to.
Regular promotions and the Guts Squad
One would think that Guts is already pretty perfect with its regular offers, but they do manage to regularly one-up themselves. For instance, there are two weekly promotions that have been running pretty much from the beginning: the Double Deal Monday and the Thursday Triple. One enhances dreary Mondays with free spins and a top-up bonus and the other awards free spins all weekend upon depositing and wagering a certain amount of money.
The featured slots for each promotion change every week, which provides some variety. And yes, in both cases free spins are wagering free as well.
On top of that Guts has begun to regularly host promotions where you can fill up a progress bar, level up and then receive free spins upon completing a level. Whether for Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, the beginning of spring or Easter, Guts has been running the promotion so much that it feels as if it’s been one and the same promotion going non-stop. Not that anyone is complaining.
Special promotions such as NetEnt network promotions take place on top of all that. And sports or live casino promotions are available as well.
New is the Guts Squad, which Guts introduced only a few months ago. This is a loyalty club, which is exclusive and thus accessible only upon invitation. You can be picked, however, if you play regularly, frequently and widely (meaning several products and not just slots for instance).
This is very much a VIP program, so you get all the benefits of faster payouts, a manager, extra bonuses, birthday gifts and more.
Conclusion: An almost perfect casino and sportsbook
As a regular visitor to our site you will find that we have a great appreciation for Guts. Here we have a safe and fair casino that deserves its fantastic reputation. We’re not the only ones who hold Guts in high regard.
The casino offers a huge choice of game providers and games, a very decent live casino and not only regular bonuses and promotions, but wagering free spins. The sportsbook offers a massive amount of markets and rounds off the offer at Guts.
There is hardly anything that we would want to improve at Guts. And among those tiny little complaints we have, the only one of any importance is the publishing of the casino’s RTP. We can even live with the fact that Guts is probably never going to offer Poker, because you can get plenty of Casino Poker and Video Poker games here. If that’s okay for you and you’re interested in a single-wallet sportsbook and casino offer, we can recommend Guts very much.
