Anyone who has stepped into the realm of online gambling will be aware that the landscape of the industry is changing. The days of basic flash based online casino games are now considered passé, as a new generation of video game inspired online casinos are making the headlines. The casino that is in many ways leading the charge is the Sweden based and self-appointed “casino-adventure game” developer Casumo. Powered by some of the best background software in the industry and a loyalty scheme that many players deem to be second to none, Casumo seems to be making all the right noises. In this review we take a long look at Casumo to see if it’s a step into the future or simply a fly-by-night gimmick?
Games and Software
Take one look at Casumo’s “About Us” page and one thing will become immediately clear, the team behind this casino has fun in mind. Everything on-site is presented to players with a dash of humour, something that is seldom seen in the somewhat too serious world of online gambling. The core element of what makes Casumo so fun can be found within the casino’s game selection. From the moment I logged on, the action was fast and furious through hundreds of well-designed and well-promoted slots titles. Player’s will find that all their NetEnt favourites are here from the worlds of both modern and classic slots titles. During my time with the casino I got to grips with the likes of Jack and the Beanstalk and Wild Turkey, both of which provided me with plenty of thrills and spills. Classic slots are also on show, as one-arm-bandit inspired games like Magic Love and Safari Madness provide hours of fun. While it can’t be considered Casumo’s strong suit, they also have plenty of alternative games available too. Carnival inspired Shoot 4 Gold, Virtual Horseracing, and various scratch card based titles can also be found. Traditional table games like poker, keno, and blackjack variations are also available.
Bonuses and Promotions
Being as truthful as we can be, it must be said that Casumo offer casino bonuses in a different way than you’d expect. Here you will be expected to earn your bonuses and believe us that isn’t a bad thing. Up to 50 EUR (along with 20 free spins) will be awarded to you as a matched bonus upon registration, from then on out you will only be rewarded for the time you put in. The more you play the more bonuses you will receive. It is an interesting format, but it many ways it works, as you really feel like committing to Casumo over the long-term is worth the effort.
As mentioned above, Casumo is powered by near faultless NetEnt software. This means that a framework that delivers some of the leading UI tools within the industry backs the casino, but it isn’t just that. From a security perspective Casumo proves to be just as robust. Top of the line encryption software is used throughout the site, while Casumo also utilities Random Number Generators to ensure fairness, along with being regulated by the Malta based Lotteries and Gaming Authority. Customer support is available 24/7 through live chat, while email support is also available for those who need it. All in all, the security and customer support options in place show that Casumo takes every measure available to protect players. Going over and above industry standards, when you choose to play at Casumo you can rest easy knowing that you’re in safe hands.
Established in 2012, Casumo in many ways are still in their infancy. But if they can reproduce the form they have shown in the first few years of their existence, then there is no denying that Casumo will hold “must play” status long into the future.
