In the world of casinos, there are some really perpetuating style choices that we’ve come to expect. Some of these style elements are chosen because they have proven to be customer favourites over as much as hundreds of years, like blackjack and roulette. Other elements are subject to our progressing culture, as you can now see that scantily clad women are no longer the casino staple they used to be. And the black with gold trim casino style is also in decline, as customers start to find the macho luxury style a little tacky. The new school of online casinos rely on an inclusive and light-hearted atmosphere, borrowing heavily from other online industries’ success. Casumo was one of the first examples of this new style, with their gamification, vector-style cartoon graphics and a few social media-inspired functions.
The Casumo Gamification
The biggest and most revolutionising feature of Casumo is the mentioned gamification. They were one of the absolute first online casinos to use this as a way of drawing in customers and making the experience more entertaining. You might have heard the term used before in relation to non-gaming activities like learning, as schools have started using it to reach out to the more restless students, or in an office environment, as a few forward-thinking businesses has tried their hand on making work more like a game, too (as if working for a salary wasn’t already incentive enough). In short, gamification means applying gaming elements to new activities. You manage to run the goal you’ve set on a running app? You win ‘experience points’. Completed your grammar studies? An avatar gets a new sword on your learning app. At Casumo, you get a complete suite of game elements on top of the normal casino games.
Your Own Casumo
When you register at Casumo you receive your own little avatar that will be the focus of your progress. He’s your gambling-fed 21st
century Tamagotchi. These Casumos look like marshmallows with Sumo-pants, and to get the most out of your experience at Casumo you can win new martial art-styled belts that’ll mark your superiority over the other players. Because you can also see how well you’re doing compared to other players, and measure yourself against them. This is especially emphasised in the various tournaments and challenges that Casumo regularly offers. Of course, you can imagine that adding a further addictive element to an already controversially addictive pastime is a risky business strategy, especially in an industry as regulated as online casinos, but Casumo does it all as tastefully and safely as possible. In the end, what they’re going for is a reward system that’s outside of the real money, so that they’re free to tell you to only play with money you can spare, and to only play for fun, without the moralising paternalism that usually follows statements like that.
As one of the biggest online casinos to rise out of Sweden, Casumo doesn’t have to be careful with their bonuses. Before you even start considering a deposit you get 20 free spins on Starburst. As soon as you’ve gone through the trouble of registering an account, Casumo will already have convinced you that they’re the only casino you need. That’s the inference you can read into getting a bonus that early, at least. For your actual deposit, you get a 200% bonus, and further free spins for 10 days. But it doesn’t end there, you get bonuses all the way up to your fifth deposit – in the end it all amounts to £1200 and 200 free spins.
User Friendly Casino and Games
Casumo was started in Sweden, so it follows that their big partner throughout their history has been the Swedish NetEnt, the biggest casino game developer you can find online. With a portfolio of their newest and greatest creations steadily replacing old and obsolete games, you can be sure that you will only get the best, even if you’re a mobile player. Their simple, clean and intuitive user interface is really one of the best features of the casino, though you probably only appreciate that if you have experience from a casino that isn’t designed like this. As a new-ish addition, Casumo has now opened up for more developers’ games as well, with Play’N GO, Micrograming, Thunderkick, Greentube, Quickspin, Bally, IGT and Sientific Games on board.
Safe and Reliable
Live chat has replaced most other forms of support on the internet and Casumo is no different. In their typical forward-thinking attitude, they have decided to focus on this one support and tried to make it as good as it can be. 24/7 access to Casumo representatives will make you forget all about lack of phone lines. If you have questions you feel might have been answered already, their FAQ section is organised in a very informative way.
You can trust Casumo with your transactions, thanks to their site being encrypted in a satisfactory way, and all modern payment solutions available. Credit cards, bank transfers and various e-wallet.
