Top 5 Casumo Videoslots
Casumo is an award-winning and world-famous online casino. While all games they offer are of a certain quality, there are a few that stand head and shoulders above the rest. We´ll take a look at these exemplary games and tell you how they work.
1. Jackpot 6000
This old, familiar slot machine continues to be wildly popular. It´s nothing too spectacular, but it´s known for being dependable above all else. As such, customers get the feeling they can predict the outcomes almost exactly. You see the reel spin, you see all the symbols on the reel, and those who look a little inside the machine think they know what’s coming next. Many gamblers don’t trust slot machines with computer animations, but this game´s simple animations eliminate that distrust.
Online slot machines like Jackpot 6000 are strictly regulated. Independent experts have checked all NetEnt slots for fair operation and fair odds of winning. So too has Jackpot 6000.
A key advantage of Jackpot 6000 over many of its colleagues is the payout percentage. Your average gambling machine pays out around 85 per cent. Jackpot 6000 pays out 95 to a whopping 98.9 per cent. That’s quite a difference. Serious players do notice this in the prizes.
How does Jackpot 6000 work?
You play Jackpot 6000 with 10 credits per game. You determine the value of each credit yourself. You can set it between €0.1 and €1. So you bet a minimum of €1 per spin and a maximum of €10 each time.
Jackpot 6000 looks exactly like a classic slot machine. The gameplay is also familiar. You win if you have three of the same pieces of fruit on one of the five paylines. There are three horizontal paylines and two diagonal paylines. Above all, Jackpot 6000 doesn’t overcomplicate things.
There are decent payouts on winning combinations. The least paying symbol will already earn you twice your total bet per payline. Winning’ spins with a payout lower than your bet are therefore not present on Jackpot 6000. There are also lemons, grapes, a bell and a star. This star pays the most, namely 100 credits per winning combination.
Heads or tails
After each winning spin, you can choose to play “heads or tails”. You can bet your winnings or half of your winnings. Did you play well? Then double your bet. Of course, you lose your bet if you guess wrong.
We recommend skipping the “heads or tails” game. You’re better off transferring the money to the Supermeter.
Jackpot 6000 has a variable payout percentage. That means you play at 95% with the basic game. The Supermeter game has a payout percentage higher than 100%. Jackpot 6000’s payout percentage rises to a whopping 98.9 per cent if you play the Supermeter as much as possible.
Therefore, if you win in the basic game, it’s best to choose to continue playing via the Supermeter. You do this by pressing “spin”. You then play via the Supermeter automatically. You can transfer your winnings back to the basic game and continue playing there via “transfer” if necessary. Of course, if you want to play with the high payout percentage of 98.9 percent, you don’t.
This is one for the enthusiast. Do you like playing slot machines? Then Jackpot 6000 is a fine slot machine. It all works exactly like the classic slot games. The main difference is the payout percentage. That’s a lot higher on Jackpot 6000.
Of course, there are several alternatives online. Game 2000, Club 2000 and Random Runner are better-known names, but still pay out a little less than Jackpot 6000.
2. Blood Suckers
A special slot from NetEnt is Blood Suckers. This slot has a payout percentage of a whopping 98 per cent, making Blood Suckers one of the best paying slots online.
Blood Suckers’ variance is also extremely low. Prizes and bonus features drop regularly. That’s why Blood Suckers is often off-limits for bonus rounds. Online casinos limit these on purpose with Blood Suckers, so you should grab every chance you get.
The protagonist in Blood Suckers is a group of bloodthirsty vampires. Graphically, it’s not the best, but if you are looking for a bonus game that drops often with a high payout percentage, Blood Suckers is an excellent slot.
How does Blood Suckers work?
You can bet between €0.25 and €50 per spin. You do this by setting the coin value to a minimum of €0.01 or maximum of €0.50. The bet level, the number of coins you bet per payline, is set between 1 and 4. With a 98 percent payout percentage and the variance of Blood Suckers, you can bet a bit higher here than you might do normally.
The Wild symbol is a vampire about to sink its teeth into the neck of a young, blonde woman. This symbol is not only Wild, but also pays out if you have at least 2 of them on any of the 25 paylines. You get 5 coins (per bet level) if you have two in a row and a whopping 7,500 coins (per bet level) if you have five in a row. Five of these Wild symbols will therefore earn you up to a maximum of €14,000 per payline.
The symbol is Wild for about eight symbols that fall relatively often in the base game. These are typical characters and attributes you would expect to see in a creepy movie about vampires. Garlic, holy writings, chemical concoctions and, of course, a vampire with a glass of fresh blood.
The bonus symbol is a set of hammers. With blood, of course. If you have three, four or five, you unlock the bonus game. This bonus game is a pick-‘n-click bonus. Twelve coffins are placed in front of you. You open these one by one.
Each coffin either contains a vampire or nothing. Do you get a vampire? Then stab it with a wooden stake. You´ll get a few hundred coins. Is it an empty chest? Then you are ‘finished’. You then return to the base game with the coins you collected.
Of the 12 chests, three are empty and nine contain a vampire. You usually win anywhere between 0 and 50 times your total bet.
Scatter free spins
Poking vampires to death is not the only bonus feature. There is also a free spins game you can unlock with scatter symbols. The scatter symbol is a scared bride. Presumably because the vampire is skulking towards her, readying itself to drain her blood.
The number of free spins is ten by default, regardless of whether you have three, four or five scatter symbols. During these free spins, you play with a multiplier of three. There is one exception to this: the bonus game in which you poke vampires just pays the regular amount.
That shouldn’t spoil the fun, of course. Five Wild symbols on any of the paylines, means 22,500 coins per level. That can add up to 90,000 coins or €45,000. A stark contrast to the other symbols. Five times the creep with the red hat earns you 1,500 coins per bet level in the bonus game instead of the 500 you get for it in the base game.
What do we think of Blood Suckers?
This slot is proof par excellence that a high payout percentage is not blissful either. Blood Suckers does pay out a relatively large amount of the bet at 98 per cent, but in very small portions. Exciting though it all is. Ominous sounds sound in the background and the random number generator sprinkles lavishly with scatter and bonus symbols. Almost every spin you’ll have a few and thus ‘almost’ the bonus game.
You need to have a few Wild symbols in a row – and preferably on several of the 25 active paylines – if you really want to win big with the base game. The bonus game is slightly better as you get triple wins.
The best part is still the bonus game with the coffins. This bonus game drops often and – especially compared to the rest of the slot machine – sometimes yields some nice amounts.
3. Buffalo Rising Megaways
Buffalo Rising Megaways is a slot from Blueprint Gaming, using Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanism under licence.
In any case, the theme is bold. Blueprint Gaming has looked very closely at Aristocrat’s highly successful Buffalo slots. These are so popular in Las Vegas that it seems like every other slot machine is a Buffalo machine.
They looked very carefully at the design and even adopted the ever recognisable “Buffalo!” cry. Not exactly, of course, but just enough to be recognisable.
How does Buffalo Rising work?
Due to the Megaways game mechanism, win all ways is used. There are 6 reels and the number of rows of symbols changes per spin. The maximum number of ways to win is 117,649.
The minimum bet is just 0.10 euros per spin and the maximum bet is 10 euros per spin.
The variance is definitely very high and the theoretical payout percentage is 96.5%.
Symbols and payouts
With the gigantic number of ways to win and the multipliers active in the bonus round, you can get a hit with any symbol, even the low card symbols.
Of the premium symbols, the buffalo symbols are obviously worth the most: 50 coins for every 6-of-a-kind. The other high symbols (bear, wolf and moose) are worth between 2 and 5 coins for 6 of the same.
The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the scatters.
The symbols with the beautiful panorama of the South West are mystery symbols. They often appear on the reels in large numbers at once and all contain the same symbol.
Buy a bonus for 100 x the stake
The free spins bonus can be activated in two ways: by spinning at least 4 diamonds or by grabbing the Buy a Bonus option.
To gain instant access to the bonus game, you may deduct 100x the bet. A hefty investment, but then you have something.
Free spins bonus
With the free spins bonus, you get to choose how to enter the bonus:
- 15 free spins multiplied by 1x,
- 10 free spins multiplied by 5x,
- 5 free spins multiplied by 10x,
- A mystery mix of free spins and multipliers.
During the free spins, after each winning combination, the multiplier is increased by +1. Because winning combinations disappear and new symbols take their place, you can make multiple winning combinations in 1 spin.
What do we think of Buffalo Rising Megaways?
Buffalo Rising is beautifully designed and Buffalo slots always do well critically.
The Megaways game mechanics and buy a bonus option have already proven themselves amply in the past with slots like Bonanza, Extra Chilli and White Rabbit from Big Time Gaming. Blueprint’s Diamond Mine Megaways and Genie Jackpots were also gems of slots.
Buffalo Rising Megaways has shown its quality as well.
4. Immortal Romance
Immortal Romance is a hugely popular online slot from gambling giant Microgaming.
This slot is loosely based on the Twilight series. As such it features: handsome protagonists, vampires, atmospheric music, and adrenaline-raising features. Neither time nor effort were spared by Microgaming to ensure that this game would be a hit, and it shows. It looks very slick and has a great soundtrack.
At least as important to Immortal Romance’s success is the fact players can win big on it. At the maximum bet, it is possible to win no less than 3,645,000 coins. That´s quite substantial.
Immortal Romance revolves around four beautiful young people called Amber, Troy, Michael, and Sarah. All of them are vampires, which plays into the theme again.
There are 243 ways to win, and the betting range is between €0.30 and €6 per spin.
The maximum bet is relatively low, but the variance is high. Players can win big, so they cannot win often. To keep the risks for casino´s somewhat contained, the maximum bet is €6.
The symbols are a mix between the four main characters (the premium symbols), some medium symbols and the card symbols. The latter pay out the least.
The Immortal Romance symbol is wild and replaces all symbols except the scatters.
The Wild Desire bonus can be activated at any time. It makes between 1 and 5 (!) reels completely wild and, with 243 ways to win active, this can make for staggering payouts.
The Lion Heads scatter and three or more provide a cash prize and access to one of the bonus rounds.
First: there are four different free spins bonuses. Each character from the slot comes with a different free spins bonus. Only the Amber bonus you can play right from the start. The other bonuses you must unlock. You do this by triggering bonus rounds. Some players dislike this mechanism, but it does make you feel like you must earn the other bonuses by playing a lot. This gets you even more into the atmospheric game and “forces” you to enjoy all the goodies, so to speak.
Each bonus feature has its own features, variance, and free spins. Do you play it safe and opt for the most free spins? Or do you like some risk and opt for fewer free spins but more potential?
You don’t have to unlock the Amber bonus and it earns you 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier. This bonus round can be triggered.
Troy Bonus – Vampire Bats
The Troy Bonus is available after you win a bonus feature five times. You will receive fifteen free spins during which Wild Vampire Bats can appear on the reels: wilds with a 2x or 3x multiplier.
Michael Bonus – Rolling Reels
You can choose Michael’s Bonus once you have played ten bonus features. You will receive twenty free spins with falling symbols. Also, by making consecutive winning combos, you unlock additional multipliers of up to x 5.
Sarah Bonus – Wild Vine
Sarah’s Wild Vine bonus is unlocked after 20 bonus features. You will receive twenty-five free spins in which a Wild Vine on the middle reel can get you extra wilds.
5. 40 Joker Staxx
40 Joker Staxx is an old-fashioned slot machine from Playson with 40 paylines and stacked jokers on every reel. This slot has no bonus features, no multipliers and no complicated mystery symbols.
There are fruit symbols, sevens and jokers and that’s what you’ll have to make do with.
The only thing this online slot machine excels in is how much money you can win. Fortunately, 40 Joker Staxx excels in this respect. You also have the option of playing this game with 100 lines, which then logically becomes the slot machine 100 Joker Staxx.
How does 40 Joker Staxx work?
The game is played on 5 reels with 4 symbols per reel. There are 40 fixed paylines and a betting range that lies between 0.20 euros and 100 euros per spin applies.
The payout percentage is quite nice: 96.42%. We estimate the variance of 540 Joker Staxx at medium.
Symbols and payouts
The symbols that really matter in 40 Joker Staxx are the jokers and the sevens.
The stacked jokers are wild and appear on all reels. They replace all symbols except the scatters. Incidentally, the scatters only entitle you to a cash prize (up to 200 x the bet for 5 scatters) and do nothing else. 5 wilds on an active payline are good for 40 x the total bet.
Do you manage to spin a screen full of wilds? Then you grab just 1,600 x your bet. At max bet, that comes to 160,000 euros. See, now we’re getting somewhere.
There are two types of sevens, a red one and a golden one. They are both worth the same amount: every 5-of-a-kind earns you 10 x the bet. A full screen of sevens is therefore worth 400 x the bet. Not bad, either.
All other symbols are already worth a lot less: between 3x and 6x the bet.
And then we have basically said everything about 40 Joker Staxx. In short, if you spin a lot of stacked wilds (preferably with some sevens), you win a nice payout.
If you don’t spin any wilds, then you barely win anything either.
What do we think of 40 Joker Staxx?
If you’re looking for a simple, dependable game, this is perfect for you
Since we don’t want to highlight only the negative aspects, we end this review with some positive notes:
- For an online slot machine, this slot looks beautiful: the jokers in particular are nicely designed,
- The payout percentage of 96.42% is quite good,
- The maximum payout is definitely interesting: 1,600 x the stake.
The final score: 4 out of 5 stars. Want to go play despite this mediocre review?
