Casumo Ontario Review 2022

Casumo comes to us originally from Sweden.  Initially an online casino brand known for its fun and light-hearted approach to gaming, Casumo added sports betting to its offering with an excellent implementation of the Kambi sportsbook platform.  Canada has been a key market for Casumo and they intend to be one of several legal Ontario betting sites in the market come spring 2022.  Until then, they continue to serve all of Canada from their jurisdiction in Malta.  Ontario Casumo players will be moved to the new 'legal' system once the market opens and they are officially licensed. Casumo also serves regulated markets including Spain, Sweden and the UK, where they were recently the shirt sponsor of Reading FC in the EFL Championship.

Casumo Ontario sports betting experience: mobile first

Casumo is built to look and feel the same across devices.  Even if you access their website from your desktop or laptop, the format lends completely to what you might expect on your tablet or mobile.  The navigation of the site essentially does not change, no matter your device of choice, unlike most betting sites that have a separate format for computer users.  Navigate the sports and leagues with two 'swipe-able' rows of icons.

The Casumo implementation of the Kambi platform here is very quick.  There is very little if any lag time as you look to navigate between leagues and sports on site.  You will not see a wheel in the middle of your screen as you look to load pages, like you do on some of the other Ontario sportsbooks that we have reviewed.  The Casumo pages just load.

Furthermore, Casumo does not force you to download an app to play from your mobile. Some of the US brand entrants to the province's market - like DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet will likely only offer Ontario sports betting apps for mobile play, with no betting site.  This is because they likely want to access and leverage your data as is made available through an app.  If you care about your data privacy, Casumo lets you play via a website, not an just an app.


Casumo Ontario odds margins

Casumo's primary gaming vertical is their online casino.  So while they do offer a sportsbook, the sports betting volume that they do is not massive.  They offer excellent coverage of most North American and internationally popular sports.  However, their odds margins for popular NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB 2-way markets often start out with margins near 7%, with odds that would look like 1.87/1.87 or -115/-115.  As money comes in, these odds margins shrink to a more competitive 4% to 5% region, where odds might be 1.91/1.91 or -110/-110 as we get closer to the time of the event.  So if you are really concerned with ultra-competitive odds from the outset across all big events, Casumo probably doesn't match up with your priority here.


Casumo Ontario new customer sports bonus

Will Casumo have a bonus offer for new Ontario players?  Yes, this is likely.  Prior to the launch of the legal Ontario sports betting and iGaming market, Casumo had one of the largest offers with a 100% deposit bonus up to $500.


Casumo Ontario payment methods

While these are yet to be set for Ontario, we know that prior to the official legal Ontario launch, Casumo accepted Visa, Mastercard, Interac e-transfers, MuchBetter, iDebit, EcoPayz and paysafecard across Canada. Expect a similar array of payment methods for Ontario.


Casumo Ontario league & sport coverage

From a coverage perspective in terms of the available sports, leagues and betting markets, know that Casumo serves a diverse set of markets, including players in the UK, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Japan and India among others.  This means that they offer an excellent array of coverage across sports for both pre-game and in-play betting markets (ways to bet).  In some of these national markets, soccer is king, in Japan it's baseball, in India, it's cricket.  Casumo knows their audience, so they make sure that their target audience has a great amount of choice on their favourite sports. So whether you like the traditionally popular 'Canadian' sports or some of the others we've mentioned, you will get extensive coverage at Casumo.


Other Casumo Ontario gaming types

As a brand that was born as an online casino first, you would be correct in thinking that they might offer one of the best legal Ontario online casinos.  Casumo of course provides a light and fun way to play RNG (Random Number Generator) online casino games or live-dealer casino games where a real-life person runs your game on camera from a studio.  If you also want access to an online poker room, you will need to look at bet365 or Betsafe. Only the largest iGaming companies have the scale to offer online poker, which requires a platform that constantly has thousands of people playing at any given time.  If you want Bingo as part of your play, bet365 offers this as well.

Will Casumo Ontario cover esports?

Yes.  Since Casumo is on the Kambi sportsbook platform, they offer access to betting on a wide variety of esports events around the world.  While they offer a breadth of coverage in terms of events, Casumo does not tend to offer a really wide variety of betting markets within each event.  So if you just want to bet on the odd esports match winner from time to time, Casumo will have you more than covered.  However, if you would count yourself as a real esports fanatic that wants the best odds & coverage that you can get, you might wish to have a look at our top Ontario esports betting sites to find superior providers in this particular regard.


Casumo Ontario bottom line: fun & easy-going approach

With a fun and easy-going approach to sports betting and casino play, if you don't take your sports betting too seriously, Casumo might be a great operator for you. Their mobile-friendly approach makes everything super simple and easy to access.  If you aren't too concerned about getting ultra competitive odds at all times because you just want to have fun betting on your favourite events, Casumo has the approach to betting and casino play that you might prefer.
