- Live chat
- Good supply of markets
In the cover letter of Casumo we read that it does not want to be just another bookmaker, but rather seeks to offer Philippines an experience adapted to our tastes and bets. Sports enthusiasts, it is one of the last bookies to arrive in the Philippines, although more than a bookmaker we should talk about Casumo as a gaming operator, as it also allows Philippines to try our luck in a most interesting online casino.

But who is behind Casumo? It is a company founded in 2012 that not only offers sports betting and online casino but also develops its own games. However, in the betting section, they have SBTeach as their provider. They are present in markets as important as those of the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, the Scandinavian countries, Canada, India, Japan, or New Zealand, and now we can also bet on Casumo from Philippines. As a random fact, instead of sponsoring a popular team, they only sponsor Jose, the guy who plays petanque.
What does Casumo offer us?
When we first access their betting site, we are pleasantly surprised as it offers a revolutionary design. We can quickly access the most prominent sporting events, those that are live - indicating how many events are available for live betting - or the sports we want to bet on. However, these appear in a horizontal menu at the top of the page, while the center is reserved for the banner that will take Philippines to each sport.
|Company||Casumo Philippines, PLC|
|Address||Gran Via Puig del Castellet 1, block 2, 1st floor. 07180, Santa Ponsa (Calvia), Majorca|
|General Gambling License||GA/2018/029|
Once we enter a sport, we have a navigation similar to what other bookies like Luckia, 888Sport, or Wanabet offer, who also use the SBTeach software. However, the market offer is more similar to what bookies like Paf offer, which we can find in others like Wanabet, especially when it comes to Asian lines or statistical bets. We have enabled the "Create Bet" tool to combine selections from the same football match, as well as pre-combined bets made in advance.
The fees are quite interesting, both in prematch bets and in an attractive live betting section. We have plenty of statistical information to try and make our bets, a good variety of sports and markets for live betting and the Instant betting function to quickly access certain markets.
Surely, payment methods are one of its Achilles heels, not because of the possibilities it offers but because there are important absences such as PayPal. We also do not have a mobile app, which along with the absence of bets on eSports or some sports is among the aspects to improve. We have an acceptable customer service, with live chat but no user support phone.
Sports and markets
Casumo offers more than 20 different categories for betting. We can find the usual football bets, tennis or basketball bets, as well as popular sports such as American football, boxing or Formula 1 and motorcycle bets, which appear grouped in the same category where NASCAR or rally bets also appear. But we also have bets on minority sports such as netball, curling or Australian football. The offer is completed with winter sports and bets on the Olympic Games, but not on eSports.
A good game of football, such as those in La Liga, Premier League or Champions, can have over 450 available markets. We have everything from the most popular markets, such as the winner of the match, over/under goals or bets on the scorer, to Asian lines, corner and card bets, and advanced player and team statistics bets. If that's not enough, you can always take advantage of one of their pre-combined bets or create your own bet by combining several selections for the same match.
ACB or NBA games also have over a hundred options, including betting on the parlay of the game, and winner, handicap, or total points of each quarter. In tennis, we have bets on ATP, WTA, Challengers and ITF, and depending on the category of the match, we find more or fewer options to bet on. If we go to the elite level, we find around twenty markets, including winner bets, total sets, handicaps of games or sets, or bets within each set. A good range of markets that we find in all sports.
In general, we can talk about good odds, in line with what we find in most Spanish bookmakers. Depending on the market, we can find odds with greater or lesser value, and it is not uncommon for one of them to offer Philippines the best odds. Not for nothing, it has the same odds provider as bookies that often move among the most attractive ones like luckia or bethard. However, they differ from other SBTeach bookmakers. The key, as always, is in compare odds.
Live section (live betting)
We can access the live betting section by clicking on the banner that appears on the betting home page, above the red button labeled "In Direct" accompanied by the live icon, or even within each sport, as the events that are being held are displayed. Live betting could not be missing for sports such as football, tennis, or basketball; but also for sports such as golf or rugby league, which not be as popular but complement a diverse offer.
The selection of markets is pretty good, as in addition to the usual markets, there is the instant betting function that allows Philippines to quickly bet on markets such as the winner of the next point in a tennis match. This way, we don't waste a second searching through their market offer. The statistical information is also noteworthy. In tennis, you can see the score service by service for each game or the minute by minute of a football match, which makes it easier for Philippines to interpret the event if we are not following it. If there is one downside, it is that there is no streaming service.
Accepted payment methods
When depositing funds into our Casumo account, we can use credit and debit bank cards such as Visa and MasterCard, electronic wallets and payment platforms such as Skrill, Neteller or Sofort, prepaid cards such as PaySafeCard, or through bank transfer. The money will be available instantly -if you deposit via bank transfer, it take a little longer due to the operation- and no commission will be applied.
Remember to verify your account before requesting any balance withdrawals. If you want to withdraw your earnings, simply click on the $ symbol in the main menu to request the withdrawal. The same method used in your last deposit will be used, with the logical exception of PaySafeCard. If you deposited using these prepaid cards, you can withdraw via transfer. These withdrawals or those made with a card can take up to three business days, while with the other methods, you will have the money almost instantly.
How to register and deposit in Casumo?
If you want to start playing in this betting house, you can access the Casumo website from here. In the upper right corner, we have the "Register" button, where we will be presented with the form usually found when registering with any betting house. We enter our email, our details, select a username and password... and start playing, although before that, we have to complete our first deposit to be able to place bets.
After logging in, you will see that our balance appears in the left menu. To make a deposit, you need to click on the balance and select the payment method you want to use. Depending on the method you choose, you will have to follow the instructions to complete the deposit. As you already know how it works, simply indicate the amount and after a few moments, the deposited money will be available in your account.
For now, we do not have an application to play on Casumo. However, this does not have to prevent Philippines from playing from our smartphone or tablet, as we can access Casumo through the browser of our mobile devices. The website has a responsive design, and we can access the same functions as from the computer, especially Instant betting when we bet live. The app would be preferable, but we settle for what is available.
Being a relatively new operator in Philippines and not belonging to a large online gaming group generate doubts about its reputation, but they are unfounded. As expected, Casumo has the corresponding license from the AGCO to offer sports betting in Philippines. This is an essential requirement for any operator, a license that sets the difference between secure betting houses and unreliable bookies. Therefore, we can affirm that it is safe.
If we scroll down to the bottom of their page, we can see that they have the PlayWell, Self-Exclusion, Responsible Gaming, or +18 seals that we find in the vast majority of betting, casino, bingo, or online poker rooms. In addition to complying with the requirements of the Directorate General for the Regulation of Gambling, Casumo has its own tools to ensure user safety. Remember that if you want to withdraw funds or deposit more than $150, you will need to verify your account first.
Casumo offers Philippines a live chat support. You will see the icon in the lower right corner, so if you have any problems you just have to open it. They will assist Philippines from 8 in the morning until 1 in the morning, more than enough time; and the maximum waiting time is about 5 minutes. You can also send an email to [email protected] or write a letter to Casumo Philippines PLC. Gran Via Puig del Castellet 1, block 2, 1st floor. 07180, Santa Ponsa (Calvià), Mallorca.
Beyond direct contact, on our website we have a Frequently Asked Questions section where you can find answers to the most common doubts about verification, payments, withdrawals, sports, bonuses, licenses, and security. If you go to our social media accounts, you will find @CasumoCasino on Facebook and Twitter, although our posts are primarily related to the casino. We also have a YouTube channel (CasumoTV).
Casumo Bets: Opinions and conclusion
Now that you know everything that Casumo offers in its betting section, it's time to take stock and decide whether or not to register. The main reason to sign up for Casumo is its powerful live betting section. We have a wide variety of sports and markets to find good bets, abundant statistical information to bet on and the possibility of taking advantage of Instant betting. To complete the circle, a streaming would be missing, but what we have is very good.
The odds, another aspect that interests Philippines the most, seem more appealing live than if we bet prematch, although it is not uncommon to find the best odds on Casumo for some events or markets. After all, they use one of the best providers in the industry, which is SBTech. If there is a downside to their offer, it is the absence of eSports and horse or greyhound racing bets, although the latter are not always available in all betting houses.
Another striking issue is that we cannot manage our funds through PayPal, one of the most popular electronic wallets that we can use practically in any bookie. On the plus side, the customer support chat or responsive website that makes up for the absence of an app. We will have to closely monitor their development, as Casumo has room to continue growing and further improve an offer that is already one of the most interesting.
