Karamba in a nutshell

Karamba casino review

Karamba online casino has been open to players since 2005. A good mixture of slots, scratchcards and live dealer games combined with good customer service, respectable bonuses and valid licences from multiple jurisdictions, have made Karamba a favoured destination for thousands of players down the years.

The platform, which is accessible on desktops, tablets and mobiles, also offers a growing online sportsbook. This started as an addition to complement the casino but it has now blossomed into a worthy standalone product in its own right.

Bonuses and Promotions

Score in this area: 7 out of 10

Karamba doesn't go over the top with its bonuses and promotions but what we found is they are fair to the player, and that is what makes them appealing. The welcome offer, which is available to all new players, combines the classic matched deposit bonus with free bonus spins. It is divided across the player's first three deposits, so you can take as much or as little as you want. If this sounds of interest to you, check out our "Offers & Promotions" tab (or the table below) to view this month's welcome bonus.

Once inside, you start to benefit from the VIP Program from your very first wager. There are seven tiers to this scheme, with the perks getting better the higher your climb. However, unlike some of the older VIP programs, you don't need to be a high stakes player to take advantage of basic rewards such as weekly free games, a birthday bonus and access to exclusive VIP tournaments.

Karamba casino also promises to provide regular personalised offers via email. These should be tailored to your gaming tastes so they are worth keeping an eye on your inbox for.

Note to all players: you must be aware of the time constraints imposed on each offer, especially the free spins. At Karamba, these are only valid for 24 hours, so you need to use them within that timeframe or they will expire. Full details of the terms and conditions are published on the promotion's page; take a moment to look through these so you don't get caught out.

Note to UK players: Dormant accounts are charged with a fee of £5 or 10% of the current balance (whichever is greater) for UK-based players who have been inactive for six months.

Other information about Karamba's bonuses:

It is not just in the casino where you can pick up bonuses - the sportsbook has a few offers up its sleeve as well.

All punters that enjoy sports betting love free bets, and that is exactly what you get when you try out this product for the first time. However, an offer that caught our eye was the KaramBOOST which pays out up to 77% extra winnings on accumulator bets.

Karamba Casino Games

Score in this area: 7 out of 10

Karamba's gaming platform is aimed primarily at slot players. It offers a solid catalogue of more than 230 titles from top developers including NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT, Thunderkick and Blueprint Gaming among others. The collection is filled with several classics like Cleopatra, Jimi Hendrix, Gonzo's Quest and Book of Dead combined with an assortment of newer titles such as Fortunium, Crystal Rift and Vikings.

The "casino games" section, which is home to card and table games, is a little sparse in our opinion. It offers a couple of roulette variants, blackjack and two video poker games. However, Karamba redeems itself somewhat with a respectable Live Dealer section where you can play baccarat, blackjack, roulette and the popular money wheel game Dream Catcher.

If virtual sports are your thing, it's worth checking out the range of Rush Go titles by Inspired. You've got a bumper selection of football, horses, dogs, cycling, cars and speedway to choose from. Another area in which this brand stands tall is within its scratchcards library. Fans of instant win games can try their luck on Queen of Diamonds, 3 Rocks, and Lucky Machines to name a few.

Withdrawals and Deposits

Score in this area: 6 out of 10

With the exception of PayPal, all of the main payment options are available for players to use. These include Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards, plus popular e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. Karamba also offers Entropay, E-Pro e-vouchers and a number of localised methods according to your country of residence.

There is a 48 hours withdrawal request period before processing takes place. During this time you can cancel the request and continue playing. We don't like this system to be honest because the operator is merely dragging its feet in the hope that some players carry on betting. Once a request is processed, e-wallets are paid on the same day but credit card and bank withdrawals do take two or three days longer to appear in your account.

Payout and Return to Player

Score in this area: 8 out of 10

Karamba is committed to upholding the values of fair play. All of its games that use Random Number Generator (RNG) software are regularly audited by iTech Labs to produce an accurate Payoutage; however, it doesn't publish specific information related to the monthly payouts of the casino.

With that said, you can gauge an estimate by clicking on the game page. If you then scroll down, there is a "Gamestats" section which highlights the RTC (Return To Customer) value. For instance, NetEnt's Starburst is 96.1%. This means on average, over the lifetime of the game, it will payout €96.10 for every €100 wagered on it. We recommend checking out these statistics so you know which games payout more, and which ones to avoid.

Safety and Support

Score in this area: 7 out of 10

In order to obtain licences from the authorities in the UK and Malta, industry standard 128-bit SSL certificates must be used. These ensure that all data is fully encrypted and a secure connection between the player's device and the casino's server is established, so no unauthorised parties can view the information, such as banking details, which are being shared.

The level of customer support is acceptable, yet unfortunately not 24 hours. You can contact support operators via live chat or telephone (+44-2033-189-367) from 06:00 - 23:00 GMT seven days a week. Alternatively, there is an email contact form built into the site with a useful document uploader should you need to include attachments.

Karamba Frequently Asked Questions

Does Karamba offer progressive jackpot games and slots?

Currently, Karamba doesn't offer progressive jackpot video slots such as Mega Moolah or Mega Fortune for its players. Given how many other casinos provide these games, it is a little surprising that Karamba does not. Regardless, there are still hundreds of high-quality games in its library, with several exclusives, too.

How do I contact the Support when live chat is offline?

Depending on when you visit the casino, there may be times when Karamba live chat is offline. In such instances, the only method of contact is via email (contact form). However, this service is not 24/7, so you will have to wait up to 24 hours for a reply.

Can I use Karamba if I am abroad?

Yes, it is possible to use Karamba in a different country from the one where you originally registered. However, you must ensure that Karamba can legally operate in the other country. Furthermore, we advise you to inform Karamba's customer service of your intention to do this, so they don't think your account has been hacked.

Can I play the casino games in demo mode?

Karamba allows players to sample many of its games (excluding live dealer tables) in practice mode. However, you are limited to 250 free games. If you then decide to create a real money account, each deposit of €/ £10 (or more) allows you to access 250 more demo practice mode games.

How do I use Karamba on my mobile?

Karamba has a customised web-based mobile casino available for customers who want to play on the go. To gain access, visit https://www.karamba.com/mobile-casino/ and provide your email address. Additionally, Karamba has Android and iOS mobile apps that can be downloaded directly from the Play Store and App Store respectively.

Conclusion

Karamba has survived the test of time and is generally an all-round solid online casino. As highlighted above, it has a few weak spots such as the limited number of table and card games, no PayPal and its mobile apps are reportedly not up to the high standards of some other operators.

However, for web-based players, the platform is simple and easy-to-use across all devices. If you're an enthusiast of slots, scratchcards and live dealer games, Karamba ticks those boxes effectively for you. The addition of a sportsbook provides even more betting options and being on the same platform, you only need to fund one account to enjoy both products. All-round, we like this site, and we think you will, too.
