Bye Bye 2020!
We would like to start this blog post by acknowledging that the past year has been extremely tough. 2020 has presented challenges never before seen and learning how to tackle a global pandemic was uncharted territory for all of us. But these difficult situations have forced societies to step up, re-evaluate their priorities and come together to result in so many wonderful efforts made this year. After riding the wave of ups and downs, we would like to say ‘Bye Bye 2020!’ and ‘Bring it on 2021!’. But before we do, let’s first look back at some of the things we managed to accomplish with and for Casumo during this crazy challenging year.
Dunder, Kazoom Casino and Casino Secret
We gained not one, not two, but three siblings! Throughout 2020 Dunder, Kazoom Casino and Casino Secret all joined the Casumo family – and we’re so proud! Each brand is sporting its own signature look and tone of voice, allowing the personality and values of each brand to shine through. Kazoom Casino is our first ‘no frills’ Pay and Play platform for a purely game-play focused experience. For now, it’s available to our Finnish players only.
Sharing insights: Casumo Working From Home
To embrace ‘the new normality’, we published a mini-series of ‘Sharing Insights’ interviews in which we asked our fellow Casumos about their working-from-home routines. They shared their best practices, favourite tools (both online and off) that helped support them to work remotely plus a whole bunch of other useful tips and tricks. Switching an entire company to the working-from-home mode obviously wasn’t easy, but together we managed to get it done.
In case you missed them, you can still read the interviews, right here:
New games and providers
This year we released close to 500 new games including some of the biggest and most popular slot releases such as Money Train 2, Gonzo’s Quest Megaways and Piggy Riches Megaways. We also made lots of games available exclusively from our game browser so that Casumo players got to try them out well in advance of everyone else.
These titles included Esqueleto Explosivo 2, Pink Elephants 2, Thunderkick’s entire Beat the Beast series and The Wild Cauldron – just to mention a few. Of course we also added a bunch of exciting, brand new providers to our casino game browser: Playson, Playtech, Push Direct, Golden Hero, PGSoft and Spearhead Studios.
Of course our Live Casino game browser couldn’t stay behind! We went live with Lightning Baccarat, Mega Ball, the first ever Live Bingo game, and with Crazy Time, Evolution Gaming’s unique live online game show. In terms of providers we’re proud to have welcomed Ezugi Live Casino, Playtech Live and Pragmatic Live. To make sure we keep the spirit up, our Live Studio underwent a fun Diwali make-over during the end of November and, as we speak, has been transformed to celebrate this year’s Holiday season.

Casumo launched in new markets
We started welcoming Casumo players from India, Japan, New Zealand and Austria, hereby focusing on localised content and games. For example in India, we launched the popular local games Andar Bahar, Dragon Tiger Baccarat and Teen Patti and for Japan we released Oiran Dream and Lucky Neko.
With its friendly design, Casumo Sports makes sports betting fun and simple – easy to use, fast and reliable. Our sportsbook is built around fans. It’s exciting, colourful and fuelled by a passion for, you guessed it, sports. Our brand sits side by side with Reading FC as we are proud to sponsor the Championship team and use it to engage with fans. Regular giveaways, prizes and goodies can be found on our Twitter feed and our relationship with the Club brings fans closer to the game.
We decided to flip 2020, a very strange year also for sports fans, on its head by phoning up fans who could not visit the stadium to give them their brand new Reading FC shirt. Little did they know that the new manager Veljko Paunovic would join the call, giving the fans the surprise of their life.
We can’t wait to bring you more surprises in 2021!

We won Awards in 2020
At the beginning of February, we won the IGA Online Casino Operator 2020 Award for the second year in a row, what an amazing kick-off that was! Little did we know that it would be the last non-virtual Award Ceremony of the year…
Then towards the end of the year, we proudly received the Online Operator Community Award during the IC Awards, a wonderful token of recognition. Handing out masks and laptops and delivering meals to families and health care workers has been an opportunity for us to provide support and comfort. Not only for our employees, but for our broader community. Many minds came together to think outside the box, because making a difference takes a village, or an industry.
December festivities for Casumo employees
Here at Casumo, we love celebrating the Holiday season. Though this year physically being together will not be an option, we’re definitely keeping the holly jolly spirit up!
