Cashmio Casino Review
Cashmio’s bold claim is that it is the “World’s Happiest Casino” and with its bouncy emoji-like characters cavorting on the home screen, its clear that fun is the order of the day.
This relative newcomer to the online casino scene started in 2015 with a single mission to put fun at the heart of what they do.
But this is a casino than does more than offer a fluffy, playful exterior – behind the cute characters is a host of casino games, including live casino options, as well as a range of payment options and fast payout times.
Slots, of which there are many, come from some major developers including NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Microgaming and Thunderkick.
Games are accessed very simply from the side of the main homepage lobby. There’s no initial clutter of various menus of the types of casino games, which makes things quick and easy.
Click on to that games tab and players are given some scrolling highlighted of games in the top window – very often some seriously big ticket titles which catch the eye.
Underneath that are the slot games available, in nice tall tiles, which work particularly well on mobile. There is also the payline and max and min bet options for the slot on the tile.
You can favorite the slot, while clicking on the ‘i’ brings up some clear details on the slot, as well as a table of useful information on the game. What’s missing here is a grading on the volatility of the slot, which would be great, but Cashmio does a very good job of explaining the slot succinctly, which again is a bonus on mobile.
Players will see games from Microgaming, Yggdrasil, NetEnt, WMS and Thunderkick (whose quirky slots seem a perfect fit for this site), including all of the big releases.
There is the all-but-essential search bar to find your chosen slot, and useful ability to ‘favorite’ your top slots so they are easy to navigate back to.
A nice touch is a tab for seasonal games, which, at the time of writing, had a selection of Valentine’s related games.
Live Casino games are accessed simply from a tab on the games page. It is a very straightforward offering, with games provided by the renowned Evolution Gaming.
There are not masses of versions of the same game, that you see at some casinos, but all of the key games are covered off with roulette, baccarat and blackjack on offer.
There’s also the classic poker variants – Three Card, Caribbean Stud, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
There’s some good betting ranges, with a roulette game allowing bets as low as 0.10 coins, blackjack as low as 0.20 coins and a max bet on the same roulette game of 10,000.00 and blackjack offering a max bet of 5000.00.
Again, on the individual game tabs this information is clearly displayed making life a lot easier.
It’s ok to call yourself a fun casino – but what is there to back it up apart from the aesthetics? Fortunately Cashimo attempts to ramp up the entertainment with its Cashmio Champions leaderboard.
This social experience is something online casinos are turning to more and more, and the big, bold leaderboard featuring prominently on the homepage suggests Cashmio are putting a lot of focus on this.
It is a slots tournament setup, with points accumulated for various achievements in games. Players go head to head and those who make the upper echelons of the leaderboard will find themselves rewarded with prizes or bonuses.
In many ways, the mobile site is more impressive than on desktop and you can see that this new casino has very much been used with the handheld device in mind.
It runs very smoothly, the menus are clear and intuitive and they’ve made a good job of making it easy for the player directly.
Big bold boxes to change the navigation view, the responsiveness when using in portrait or landscape mode, makes us sure that this will be a good choice for those who like gaming on the go.
Being a friendly casino extends to its customer service support, with chat open from 9am to 11pm (CET) as well as offering email responses.
The lack of phone support is not ideal, but live support service in general runs from 9am through to 1am.
The FAQ section is broken down nicely in to general questions, payments issues, technical queries and bonus conditions answers.
The site is licensed and regulated in the UK for players from that territory – a well known and trusted regulator.
It is also regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, which again is a trusted regulator, so having both of these badges suggests the site offers a safe and secure gaming experience.
There is a responsible gambling area, which tells players how to go about limiting their gambling if they feel they need to, including deposit limits, cool off periods and more.
Cashmio offers a big range of payment methods including Visa, Mastercard, Trustly, EUTeller, Neteller, PaySafeCard, EUTeller, Instadebit, P24, SOFORT and EcoPayz.
Paypal is a notable exception here, but there’s plenty of options for most people.
In terms of withdrawals, there is a 24 hour turnaround on most methods except a bank transfer which can take 1-5 days.
