Kaboo Casino in a nutshell
Kaboo says it’s “unlike any casino you’ve ever known”, but that’s a claim many operators make. Hop over to the website, however, and you’ll unfurl a funky, mysterious gambling universe. It’s a cross between Alien and Terminator.
Kaboo is the third online casino venture from Betit Operations, a company based in Malta. Betit already run two sites noted for their original approach – SuperLenny and Thrills. SuperLenny is the only casino with an intro like a soft rock music video.
The world of Kaboo opens with a stunning video intro and a Hollywood-esque voiceover. It’s a universe of missions and ‘echoes’ – gaming units you can redeem for free spins and other bonuses.
So, is Kaboo the new schmoo or a load of old Kaboo-llocks? Strap in, hit the turbo boost, warp to factor eleven and read our dimension-bending review …
What’s the look and feel of Kaboo Casino?
Spinal Tap famously had guitar amps that ‘go up to eleven’. We mark each category for an online casino we review out of ten, but if we could, we’d award Kaboo eleven out of ten. Yes, it’s THAT good. If there’s a casino out there with a better-looking and more innovative design, then we’ve yet to see it.
What games are available at Kaboo Casino?
The games content in the Kaboo-niverse is very slots-heavy, and many of the best games in the online casino realm are available at Kaboo – classics such as Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest alongside 2015 releases such as Hooks’ Heroes and Wild North. We counted a vast total of over three hundred slots.
Usually casinos with lots of slots skimp on the number of casino games, but that is not the way things are done at Kaboo, no sir. You’ll have to forgive us our maths, but we came up with the following totals of games available:
- Blackjack (29 varieties)
- Video poker (46)
- Casino poker (14)
- Roulette (17)
- Baccarat (5)
There’s also several ‘arcade’ games including bingo and casino, plus THE game that ALL casino fans lust for: Premier Trotting!
We hate saying it, such is the amazing amount of casino fun on offer here, but there’s no craps or sic bo. There is also no sign of a live casino here either.
No matter how good a casino looks, if ain’t got no decent games, then it ain’t worth a single casino chip. Happily, top casino software names such as NetEnt and Microgaming have found a portal into the Kaboo universe. Also making a telling combination are Quickspin, IGT, Ash Gaming, GTS, Blueprint, Playtech, NextGen, ELK Studios, NYX, Thunderkick, Rabcat and Play’n GO.
What’s more, Kaboo say that soon they’ll be adding Betsoft, Yggdrasil and WMS to their portfolio too. Wow.
The site looks lovely on mobile too – especially tablets. No live casino though.
We tried to use the onlne support but despite being ‘number 1 in the queue’ when we opened support, we left hanging for a good ten minutes before ‘Lotta’ attended to us. Boo Kaboo!
What promotions are available at Kaboo Casino?
Once you’ve made the difficult transition into the Kaboo universe, you’re entitled to a welcome bonus and some freebie spins.
Simply by registering, you receive five free ‘echoes’. Echoes are what passes for currency at Kaboo, and basically each echo is worth £/€/$0.10. You can spend your echoes on slots, but the minimum amount you need to gain free spins is ten.
There’s a welcome bonus and a reload bonus to be had at Kaboo. Both of them are one hundred percent deposit bonuses up to a maximum of £/€/$100. With each bonus you also receive fifty echoes, as long as you deposit at least £/€/$20.
You can use echoes on slots, but the value of each echo changes depending on the slot you intend to play. The ‘cheapest’ slot is Starburst, which costs one echo per spin.
The wagering requirements of your bonus are 60x, but that applies to the bonus only. Some casinos have friendlier wagering requirements but they usually apply to your bonus and deposit. Better news comes with free spins winnings obtained via the welcome bonus – they come with NO wagering requirements. We’re so happy about that we’re going to say it again – NO WAGERING REQUIREMENTS. What’s more, when you obtain free spins from echoes beyond your initial two deposits, they come with the tiny wagering requirement of 1x. How great is that?
Reload bonuses occasionally become available to Kaboo players. The wagering requirements for such bonuses drop to 35x the bonus only.
There are a few games you are not allowed to use when meeting your wagering requirements: Eye of the Kraken, Tower Quest, Lucky Angler, Big Bang, Forsaken Kingdom, The Wish Master, Scrooge, Devil’s Delight, Champion of the Track, Robin Hood, Pearls of India, Tomb Raider 2 and Castle Builder.
Game contributions are as follows:
- Video slots, classic slots, jackpot slots, arcade and scratch cards: 100%
- Other table games: 40%
- Roulette 0%
- Video poker, blackjack, baccarat, casino poker: 5%
You can earn extra echoes at Kaboo by undertaking missions. Your missions can be found on your landing page, and you’re told what you need to do and the rewards you’ll obtain. There are new missions for you to attempt on a regular basis. You can also check your echo balance from your landing page. When you play any game, little indicators pop up at the side of the screen showing if the game contributes to a current mission, and your progress so far.
Echoes are the only currency available. You can obtain echoes by chucking tenners through a trans-dimensional sub-space wormhole. Alternatively, you can use your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card, or Skrill or Neteller. The minimum deposit is £/€/$10.
The minimum withdrawal is £/€/$20. Maximum and minimum deposits and withdrawals are dependent on your chosen payment method, and are per transaction only.
Processing times for withdrawal are fairly standard – 24-48 hours for Skrill and Neteller, 3-5 days for credit and debit cards.
The final verdict
We enjoyed our voyage into Kaboo’s new casino dimension. Even if you’re a vanilla gambler who doesn’t do ‘quirky’, the sheer number of games available should pique your interest. If Kaboo get Betsoft, Yggdrasil and WMS on board, they’ll enter another dimension.
Not everything is stellar though – we’d like more cashier options, and a live casino for the hardcore gambler.
At the moment, Kaboo is a shiny new star in the online casino cosmos.
