Bonuses and Promotions
Signing up for a new real money account at Casumo gives you matches on your first five deposits plus the added bonus of 200 free spins:
- 1st deposit – 200% match bonus (up to £50) and 20 free spins + 20 more free spins per day for the next nine days (200 free spins in total)
- 2nd deposit – 50% match bonus (up to £150)
- 3rd deposit – 50% match bonus (up to £200)
- 4th deposit – 25% match bonus (up to £400)
- 5th deposit – 25% match bonus (up to £400)
Overall, five deposits worth £3925 are required to claim the full £1200 bonus, which would increase your bankroll to £5125 and represents an overall deposit match of just over 30%. In order to activate the bonus, you need to claim it via your account inventory. Your free spins are available the following day and can be claimed in the same way.
The wagering requirement is 25x deposit + bonus, which is effectively a 50x playthrough. This is amongst the highest in the industry, but clearing the bonus is made easier for slots players because these contribute 1:1, and this is a cashable bonus (i.e., the bonus amount can be withdrawn once you meet the playthrough). Winnings from your free spins have a lower wagering requirement of 30x, while different games make different contributions to meeting the playthrough:
- 100% – online slots and all other games except those listed below
- 30% – video poker
- 10% – oasis poker, Texas Hold’em, Casino Hold’em
- 0% – blackjack, roulette, baccarat, punto banco
In order to claim the full bonus amount, five fairly substantial deposits need to be made, so this is a Welcome Bonus that is unlikely to suit the occasional player, or those who like to mix it up with table games as well. However, if you’re a regular slots players and want to kick start your account with a good-sized bankroll, then a 30% match on deposits of this size is hard to beat, and is one we’d recommend.
Other bonuses and promotions
Quirky promotions and rewards are the order of the day at Casumo. For instance, The Adventure rewards players with ‘Valuables’ and trophies as you play which, when you reach certain levels, can then be exchanged for cash prizes and free spins. The progress bar shows you which level (or ‘planet’) you’re at and what you need to do to get to the next level, as well as what surprises are waiting for you when you get there.
As well as this ongoing reward programme, there are other weekly bonuses and promotions on offer as well. For instance, the Casumo Challenge is a casino race where the aim is to complete the ‘missions’ that you are set in as short a time (or as few spins) as possible, with prizes being awarded to the top 30 players. Players can choose to play in either Easy, Medium or Hardcore challenges. Reel Races is another regular tournament, where entry is free and the aim is to win as many points as possible on a selected slots game during a set period of time.
You can subscribe via email and/or SMS to make sure you’re getting the news on all the latest special offers.

All games are played in Flash mode, with no download required, which also means they can be played for free in demo mode.

Players can use the same log in details to sync their accounts across all platforms, while the same Welcome Bonus is available for players who sign up for a new account directly in the mobile casino.
There is a smaller selection of games on the mobile site but it is nevertheless comprehensive, and with more than 160 games to choose from it is one of the largest ranges you’ll find at any mobile casino.
The games include well over 100 different slots, including the most popular titles, as well as progressive jackpot slots such as Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune, on which a Swedish player won £2.48 million in July 2016 in the Casumo mobile casino.

Deposits can be made using Skrill and Neteller e-wallets, pre-paid PaySafe Card, Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards (MasterCard can’t be used for withdrawals), or direct bank transfer. It should be noted that there is a 2.5% fee for deposits using a credit or debit card. Funds appear instantly in your account, except when using direct bank transfer, which can take 1-3 business days.
Withdrawals are guaranteed to be processed within 23 hours of a request being received (although they’re often completed faster), and on approval funds are available immediately, except in the case of direct bank transfers and Visa cards, where cash can take 1-3 working days to reach your account. All withdrawals are free of charge, although you need to verify your identity before your first withdrawal will be authorized.

Casumo is a site that appeals to both a younger generation of player and to real slots enthusiasts, through the variety of its games and appealing, contemporary design. The range of online slots, including progressive jackpots, is impressive, while the number of games in the mobile casino is hard to beat. The Welcome Bonus is a good one for slots players (although less so for those who enjoy table games), while the regular tournaments and promotions provide plenty of opportunities to pick up ongoing rewards.
