Many new players are attracted to a new casino based purely upon the welcome bonus on offer. At Kaboo – a rather unique casino which went live in 2015 -the dual bonus is fairly healthy, and should encourage a fair few to sign up. With the very first deposit, a 100% bonus is offered up to a maximum amount of €100 and, if you decide to deposit further funds, you can enjoy a further 100% bonus on your next €100.
New players are rewarded in other ways too; via ‘echoes’, a feature unique to Kaboo. 5 Echoes are awarded upon registration which can be exchanged for free spins on a variety of popular slots but provide a bit more versatility than your average free spins bundle. You also receive 50 echoes with your both your first and second deposits and we’ll find out more about how they work later in the review.
If you aren’t sure whether signing up is for you or not, you can always register without depositing a penny- players are automatically awarded five no-deposit echoes just for going through the process, and the free spins you’ll get when you exchange them are entirely free of wagering requirements.
At the time of writing, Kaboo do not seem to make use of bonus codes at all. This follows current industry trends, which have seen casinos veer from the use of coupons and the alike to simplify the bonus process. At Kaboo, your rewards will be automatically credited to your account as you successfully complete a range of missions. Rewards predominantly come in the form of echoes, although there are other types of bonus too. Either way, Kabooo are dedicated to their loyal following of casino players and prove it via their awards schemes.
Here, at Johnslots, we like to stay up to date with recent changes though so, if Kaboo start using bonus codes in future- you’ll be among the first to know.
As you will have gathered by now, echoes equal free spins at Kaboo, but the process of gaining those echoes may be just a little more exciting than you might expect. To be awarded your echoes, you must complete a variety of missions; these vary all the time, but players can stay up to date with what the current missions are by visiting the ‘Missions’ page on the site.
Expect to have to fulfill various criteria to complete different missions as each one is unique. You might need to make a deposit of at least €20 for example, or play €500 worth of spins. Alternatively, you may need to reach the bonus round on a specified game. The missions are unique and add a dash of intrigue to your playing time at Kaboo. And the rewards are plentiful of course!
Handily, you can keep track of any headway you might be making by checking the handy progress bars on the aforementioned mission page, to see how far you have to go before you get your freebies. There is also a handy countdown, which signals ‘all change’- and a whole new set of missions. When you have secured your echoes, you can check the bonus page when deciding how to use them. 10 echoes will be worth a different number of free spins on different games – it all depends on the minimum stake amount relevant to a particular slot. The process lets you choose your game, however, so you have much more freedom of choice than you would have with a standard free spins bundle. And best of all, the resulting free spins are entirely free of wagering requirements.
Kaboo’s cash bonus wagering requirements are a fairly mean 60x (although nowhere near as bad as some we have seen), but players will be relieved to hear that this is not applicable on winnings from free spins- these are completely free from wagering requirements. This means that, if you are awarded echoes, you can convert to free spins and get playing, safe in the knowledge that any winnings you make are yours to withdraw as you see fit. We LOVE it when casinos are prepared to offer free spins exempt from wagering requirements, it allows you to make so much more of your bonus.
From the second you arrive on their site, you will quickly realise that Kaboo is more than a little different. Owned by Betit Operations Ltd., the same people who are behind both SuperLenny and Thrills, it’s a little darker and more unusual than its rivals.
The premise is, in basic terms, that kaboo.com is a portal to a parallel universe- called, of course, Kaboo. Players are encouraged to begin a journey, embarking upon challenges in an effort to establish the ‘truth’- until now kept secret by a secret organisation dubbed the Boolean Brotherhood. We told you it was a little out-there, didn’t we? If the back story intrigues you, you can swot up on the ‘Book of Kaboo’ section on the site for all the information.
The design accompanying the concept is a futuristic one- with galactic backgrounds, and the colour-scheme is dark and ominous. It’s easy to become immersed in the world of Kaboo so expect to become increasingly intrigued by the latest missions as you become a regular visitor to the site.
Customer support is available from 10:00-24:00 CET daily, and assistance is offered in English, Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish. As you might expect, VIP account management is available for the high-rollers among you.
While classic table games such as blackjack, poker and roulette are available to players on the site, Kaboo are clearly, at first, second and third glance, a predominantly slots-based casino. Jackpot favourites like Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights and Hall of Gods take pride of place- offering dreamers the chance to play for the really big prizes.
Variety is king here so, while games from the largest developers in the industry- like Netent and Microgaming are present (the Netent game NRVNA- exclusive to Kaboo, Thrills and SuperLenny, and the popular Avalon II and Jurassic Park games from Microgaming stand out), you can opt to try something from a less-established, boutique developer too.
As a new player in the industry, it will come as little surprise that the site has been purpose-built to operate on a variety of platforms- including mobile. Given that latest estimates suggest that 80% of all adults on the planet will own smartphones by 2020, you would think that all casino sites would operate equally as well on mobiles and tablets as they do on desktop but this is, unfortunately, not always the case. Kaboo- we salute you!
At present, Kaboo does not operate an app. This is hardly a problem for most users, as apps notoriously take up valuable space on phones and tablets, before you even consider the hassle of downloading the app in the first place. With Kaboo, you can simply access the casino through your browser- just punch in a search for Kaboo’s website and you’re there.
The only downside to not operating an app is that there is no one-click option to access the site, although you can, of course, set up a bookmark for easy access once you’re in your browser of choice.
Despite well-documented issues between Adobe Flash and Apple products, you should encounter no problems accessing your favourite slots from your iPhone or iPad at Kaboo. So you can get playing and, hopefully winning, at some of the most popular games offered by this new casino.
As with iPhone and iPad users, if you use an Android device, Kaboo was created with you in mind. You shouldn’t find any problems with getting on the site or playing any of the wide variety of games, so the site should be a winner for those who prefer to play on mobile rather than desktop.
The people behind Kaboo set out to create something completely different and, overall, we’re inclined to agree that they have succeeded. The missions and challenges take players on a journey so, while the casino may not be for those who like to just hop on, play a quick slot and cash-out, it will be a completely immersive, interactive experience for others- perhaps those disillusioned by other ‘samey’ options available (we won’t name names!).
One thing is for sure- it’s a completely unique concept, and the gamble seems to have paid off handsomely. Thousands of players have made Kaboo their casino of choice and its popularity continues to grow, helped in no small part by a laudable attitude to excellent bonus campaigns and rewards schemes.
