This is where I really love Casumo. Quick and easy opening of the account and my first deposit scored me a 100% deposit match bonus, plus an additional bunch of free spins via a text message to my mobile.
On to the slots then, and I was really looking forward to some games that I’d not played before, like Flux and Thief. The list also had many my old favourites, such as Mega Moolah and Game of Thrones. Add to this that all the games advertise a demo mode to see if they’re to your liking before you start spending your bank, and you have just some the reasons I really like Casumo.
With a light step and a happy heart, I hit the button to play a Netent game called Crime Scene that I hadn't seen before. Game play is slick and smooth, and in this particular game; which features sticky wilds and great bonus game if you’re lucky enough to hit it, the soundtrack is quiet and discreet…until you hit a win, which is greeted by a really loud guitar chord. Onwards and upwards then, and on to the next game, and I selected an IGT game called Balloonies - I tell you; I suffer for my art!
The game wouldn't load in demo mode, so I switched to playing for cash and was delighted to find that the game loaded just fine…until I tried to play, when I got an error message telling me my session had expired and I should relaunch the game. I did…despite it being the kind of game and soundtrack I try to avoid, I did reload it, but got the same error message again. That’s when I gave up.
Back to the game browser (which can be reached with a click the button to the left of the screen) and on to Shamrockers, another IGT game, and another that wouldn't load. Not at all.
I spent a happy hour exploring the games browser, and found that games by Netent worked just fine, and thankfully there are plenty of them, while IGT games either failed to load or threw up an error message when the game started. Some games - Game of Thrones for example - demanded that cookies be enabled to allow me to play; something I’ve never experienced before. I found a game by Thunderkick which worked just fine, and if you spot Flux out there, give it a go. I loved it!
So, on the ‘love it’ side of Casumo Casino is a super-straightforward site with a great range of slots and superior playing experience. If Netent slots are your very favourite thing, then this could end up being your casino site of choice.
On the ‘Hate it’ side is that fact that there are many games that (at least for me, playing in the UK) won’t load or won’t work as they should. There’s also a slightly irritating scrolling message board on the left of the screen, but you can switch to an info setting that gets rid of it…as I found out…eventually.
