Casumo has been running since 2012 and in that time have managed to make quite the names for themselves. The company are based out of Malta, but hold licenses with the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority.
What we think is the reason behind their success is their constant strive for innovation. The most obvious way to see this is simply in the sites design and layout. It looks unlike any other that we have come across and when you think of how many casinos there are in the industry at the minute, this is quite the feat.
The welcome offer at Casumo is pretty huge and can be worth up to €1,200 in total. The bonus is actually broken down into your first 5 deposits on site, so it means that you can work through one and claim your reward before moving on to the next. We find that this is often the easiest way to make sure that you don’t lose out on any bonus money, especially when it comes to the timeframe in which you have to clear the bonus.
The bonuses and deposit are broken down as follows:
- 1st deposit: 200% bonus (max bonus €50) and 200 freespins (20 per day the following 9 days).
- 2nd deposit: 50% deposit bonus (€150 max bonus).
- 3rd deposit: 50% deposit bonus (€200 max bonus).
- 4th deposit: 25% deposit bonus (€400 max bonus).
- 5th deposit: 25% deposit bonus (€400 max bonus).
Your deposit bonuses will hit your account as soon as the deposit amount has been cleared through whichever payment method that you use. You will need tow ager through both your deposit and your bonus amount 25 times before being able to withdraw any bonus money or winnings from your bonus. Any winnings that are triggered during your free spins will need to wagered through 30 times before being able to withdraw.
It’s worth noting that not all games carry the same wagering requirements and in fact, some don’t carry any at all. Here is a list of the games and the percentage of wagers that count.
- Slots = 100%
- Blackjack (Incl. Pontoon and Double Exposure) = 0%
- Roulette (All Varieties) = 0%
- Baccarat (All Varieties) = 0%
- Video Poker = 30%
- Punto Banco = 0%
- Oasis Poker = 10%
- TXS Hold’em Poker = 10%
- Casino Hold’em = 10%
- All Other Games = 100%
Other promotions on site are limited aside from the welcome offer, which is a little disappointing. We have heard that Casumo do provide existing players with reload bonuses and similar offers from time to time, but these are sporadic and without any real reasons as to why and who gets them.
The one promotion that they do offer comes in the form of tournament games within the casino. These aren’t necessarily something new to online casinos, but it differs on Casumo slightly in that they add money to the prize pool of every tournament that takes place. The Reel Races will range from different games on each day and with that you can win up to £2,000 in cash every evening on site. All you need to do is sit down at the highlighted slot for that day and start earning points whilst you play.
Software and Games
Casumo takes advantage of some of the biggest software providers in the industry, such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, IGT, WMS, NextGen, Thunderkick and Quickfire. In fact, the list goes on even further than this and it all adds up to massive range of games to choose from throughout the site. You are only going to be able to access the casino via your desktop browser, with no download option available. But, they do include a good range of games – not all – via their mobile casino, so that’s ideal for when you’re on the go.
What we thought was a really good feature, especially for new players, is that you able to try a massive range of casino games for free without even having to register a new account. It works by Casumo essentially embedding the games into their site and then you just set about with an unlimited bankroll. It’s the perfect to get to know how a game works before investing your money.
With hundreds of slots to choose from within some of the biggest software providers in the industry, it’s fair to say that whatever type of game you are looking for, Casumo will have you covered. The range of games actually took us by surprise somewhat and we found very few flaws from the games that were on offer. We know that they could have easily added more games if they wanted to, but they have obviously gone with quality over quantity, which is always a positive for us.
Some of the standout games that we tested included Starburst, Dead or Alive, Book of Dead, Phoenix Sun, Fruit Wrap, Big Bad Wolf and Raging Rhino. They have a good range of branded games to accompany these as well, if that’s something that you are likely to go for instead.
With 13 different games of roulette to choose from, you’re never going to get bored with Casumo. The games on offer include American, European, French, Live, Key Bet, Monopoly, and Monopoly Tycoon.
Blackjack games are just as strong as roulette with 15 different variants on offer. These include Double Exposure, Professional Series, Single Deck, Live and Roulette & Blackjack.
There are 20 jackpot games in total, which again is a really solid number for a casino this size. The games included a range of slots and table games mixed in, mainly coming Caribbean Stud Poker variants, which were very cool to play. The slots were the usual suspects of Mega Moolah, Hall of Gods, Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights and many more. Interestingly on the homepage the site includes a live jackpot ticker for the total amount on offer at any one time and at the time of writing this number had just ticked over £8,000,000 to give you an idea of how in depth this section is.
Since 2012 Casumo have managed to really get a stronghold for their, albeit small, piece of the online casino industry. The company have brought together one of the more interactive online casino rooms and whilst there isn’t an awful lot on the history of the company or about the Casumo Services Limited group, they are very open on site about how they work and are very able to offer advice and guidance where needed.
