Casumo Casino – online and mobile games
In this current world of online casinos, the endless gaudy lights can perhaps become a little repetitive or samey, making it hard to tell one from the next.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is why if you have bets to place and you’re looking for a place to bet then you want something that stands out from the crowd. And so, without further ado, please step forwards Casumo Casino.
Casumo Casino was created by some young Swedish entrepreneurs in 2012 and has since grown out of Scandinavia to be accessible to a majority of the rest of the world. Now a word of warning – if you are looking for a typical and serious Vegas-style site with bright fancy flashing lights on dark smoky backgrounds then Casumo is perhaps not for you.
Alternately, if you’re looking for some casual fun or a quick break, then it should be right up your street. When you enter the site you are greeted by a cartoonish palette of clean and simple yet attractive visuals. Casumo looks like Sweden’s answer to Adventure Time and appears to take itself about as seriously.
A varied casino
In terms of their game variety, Casumo lacks for little. Overall they have in the region of 600+ different slot games, and though the options may vary a little between different countries the selection is never below 100, and usually far above. But it’s not just quantity with Casumo. Games provided by slot world king NetEnt such as the famous Starburst, that deliver players a fun, bright and engaging experience along with decent odds, are there to play. And although when Casumo began in 2012 the slots were NetEnt exclusive the site now also features games offered by a numerous list of other software providers – Net Entertainment, Quickspin, Microgaming, Play’n GO, Thunderkick, WMS, Greentube, Bally, Barcrest, ShuffleMaster, Evolution Games and IGT – and to make things even better the list is still growing, meaning everybody should be able to find something they like.
In addition to the smaller slots, Casumo also has a number of jackpot games that can give multi-million euro payouts to whoever might be lucky enough. And whilst for many casinos the jackpots might seem like pie-in-the-sky Casumo has already paid out some of those huge jackpots, like the €13.33 million won by a certain gentleman from Finland, as well as multiple other wins in the hundreds of thousands.
It would be unfair to call Casumo a one-trick-pony though because in addition to an expansive slot collection they also provide a selection of more traditional table games including roulette or baccarat and even games where the house edge is particularly low such as blackjack or poker. Some of these games, like blackjack, are also available to play over live webcam.
Bonus and free spins
To introduce you to their world of gaming Casumo offers all new players multiple deposit bonuses and a number free spins, though the exact details depend on the country. In the UK, for example, when you sign up you get what works out to a £/€1200 deposit bonus over five installments, plus 200 free spins. The casino also offers no deposit bonuses and free chips!
- No Deposit – 20 free spins
- 1st deposit – 200% up to £/€50 and 180 free spins
- 2nd deposit – 50% up to £/€150
- 3rd deposit – 50% up to £/€200
- 4th deposit – 25% up to £/€400
- 5th deposit – 25% up to £/€400
Despite the multitude of games and slots on offer, the bit that makes Casumo really stand out is the original concept of their site – the gamification of the casino. Casumo describes itself as a ‘Casino Adventure’. What this means in practice is that Casumo adds a new dimension to the traditional gambling model by turning it into a role-playing game at the same time, something that adds a sense of progression as you play. Upon signing up you receive an avatar, or ‘Casumo’, who looks a little like a cheerful cartoon cross between a marshmallow and a tooth. And if you don’t believe it then go see for yourself.
This Casumo will level up as you play. Badges, trophies, new planets, even eventually the prized black belt can all be gained as your Casumo rises through the ranks, and each of these ranks offers new bonus rewards in the forms of anything ranging from free spins to extra cash. As if the ranking and starting bonuses weren’t enough they also offer weekly competitions, prizes and a unique ranking system for each of their games individually.
On the go
As a mobile app, Casumo’s simple aesthetic helps speed up the app itself, and their wide selection of mobile slots and games are all available. Furthermore, the Casumo avatar area is also accessible on the app making the mobile version incredibly similar to the browser version, meaning the mobile experience is as full as it can be.
Safe and helpful
As far as your security is concerned, Casumo is licenced by both the UK and Malta gaming commissions despite being relatively new to the market, which reflects positively on Casumo. Withdrawals can be made through VISA, Skrill, Neteller or by bank transfer, whilst deposits can be made through all of the aforementioned, plus MasterCard, Paysafe, iDEAL, SOFORT, Giropay, Pugglepay (Methods can vary slightly for different markets). Casumo also guarantee to review all withdrawals within 23 hours.
Casumo’s 24/7 customer service is currently available in the forms of either email or live chat. Although the lack of direct contact has been noted, emails and chats are typically replied to within minutes or less, and given the security of the site a full-scale emergency is not much of a risk.
Overall Casumo is a new, innovative and light-hearted approach to gaming. Despite the uniquely different approach Casumo still fulfill the same functions as its competitors and never forgets that it is above all, a casino. That doesn’t stop it from trying to make gambling more fun though.
