Karamba Online Casino Review
Karamba is a colourful casino that has a brightly coloured parrot as its mascot and promises to provide even the most hardened of players with games that they have never seen before. But does Karamba live up to its promises and self-proclaimed status or is this another flop?

Karamba has been around since 2005 and is run by the same company that own Hopa Casino and Atlantic Spins Casino, neither of which are particularly big.
It does have some slots and scratch cards that you will struggle to find anywhere else, but they are far from unique. They have simply focused on some smaller developers, while also sticking with the big names that everyone knows and loves.
So, as well as a host of titles from Microgaming, NetEnt and Aristocrat, you will also find real money online slots from Amaya, NeoGames and Bally. These developers have been used on hundreds of other casinos, but they are not used on the biggest online casinos like Paddy Power and Spin Palace, so it’s true that many players will have not seen them before.
The support on Karamba is very good. It is available all day every day and you can choose from email, phone or live chat. This is par for the course on the biggest and best online casinos, but these days many newer and smaller online casinos do not have phone support and only operate during set times, which can be very frustrating.
Karamba are licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, who are probably the most commonly used and the most respected licenser in Europe. That’s a good thing, but the bad thing is that they have not been audited for ten years.
You could argue that it is a good thing they have been audited at all, as many online casinos have not, but if you want to be known as a respectable real money online casino then you really need to be allowing auditors through your virtual doors at least once every couple of years. A decade is far too long of a wait.
The site does seem to have the best encryption technology but it also has some outdated games and this, along with the lack of a recent audit, gives it the feel of a casino that the owners have either forgotten about or have lost interest in. We’re sure that is not the case, but there is enough there to be concerned about this possibility.
The promotions on the Karamba casino also leave a lot to be desired, with neither the continued offerings of Spin Palace or the straight-up generosity provided by the likes of Royal Vegas Casino.
Casino Rating: 60/100
We like the fact that Karamba has some games that you won’t find in many other highly rated online casinos and we like the fact that it has been going for a long time as well, as it is usually indicative of a respectable brand that few customers complain about.
However, there are some glaring flaws here that we do not like and that is why it gets a reduced score from us.

Hola! Karamba! The main feature is for 10/10. The marvelous atmosphere is in complect. More then that, welcome and loyalty bonuses are rather big. Actually there are no critical problems with Karamba. Their support is not so fast, thir withdraws too, but they pay every bill they have. It is not perfect casino, but it is simply good.

I recommend Karamba Casino on the basis of its mobile casino platform and wide assortment of casino games to choose from. A quick look at the PC platform will reveal just how cluttered this casino’s interface is. The games are squeezed, which makes it somewhat difficult to navigate around. However, one day on my way to work, I decided to try it on my mobile phone and I’ve never wanted to try anything else. The games load very fast and navigation is easy. The overall result is you get to enjoy every time spent at the site.
