What Is A Casumo Reel Race

The Casumo reel races are tournaments running every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I guess that makes it 30/24/7, or something like that! The Casumo UK marketing blurb states, “hundreds of prizes every day, including €2,000 cash grand prize every evening at 20:00 CET… use your Reel Race spins to collect as many wins, big wins, mega wins and wins in a row before the clock runs out.” But what does that mean and can you really win 2k in real money?

Casumo Reel Races Prizes

Login to your Casumo account and look for the icon “Reel Races”. You will then be presented with a timeline of the schedule reel races for the day. Scroll down the timeline and click “show more Reel Races” to see the scheduled races. On the day of this review, at 8 pm, the Reel Race was €/£2000 cash in Grand Universal Monsters – The Phantom’s Curse Slot Reel Race. After that, the cash prize dropped away to a top prize of €/£75 for next few 30-minute reel races. At midnight, the top prize was 150 free spins on Mega Fortune. During the day, Casumo seems to offer free spins, whereas a night, it tends to be cash prizes.

You will need to deposit money using bank transfer, PayPal or Visa, or use real money winnings from your account before opt in. There are no wagering requirements in this promotion and whatever you win during the tournaments is your money to keep. The aim is to collect points more than any other player.

Here is a sample of prizes:

  • 20:00 Win €/£2000 cash in Grand Universal Monsters – The Phantom’s Curse Reel Race
  • 20:30 Win €/£75 cash in Grand Universal Monsters – The Phantom’s Curse Reel Race
  • 21:00 Win €/£75 cash in Grand Universal Monsters – The Phantom’s Curse Reel Race
  • 00:00 Win 150 free spins Mega Fortune Dreams Reel Race
  • 15:30 Win 100 free spins Big Bad Wolf Reel Race

Casumo Reel Race Slots

The reel race video slots frequently change which is a great thing. You will be able to play Starburst, Crystal Queen, Gonzo’s Quest, Fruit Warp, my personal favourite Big Bad Wolf and many many other slot games. Perhaps surprisingly Casumo also offer progressive jackpot games like Mega Fortune Dreams – talk about a double bonus if you won the jackpot and collect points in the reel race tournaments.

The only games not available to play are table games like poker or live casino roulette, its “limited” to online slots.

Casumo Reel Race Tips

It’s fair to say the 8 pm time slot is the most popular given the €/£2,000 top cash prize. Other prizes for the 8 pm Reel Race include €/£500 for 2nd place, €/£100 for 3rd place, €/£50 for 4th and 5th, €/£25 from 6th to 10th and finally €/£10 if you finish within the top 25. Remember, this is every single day at 8 pm. It’s not like you have to wait a whole week, like other casino reel race tournaments, to try again if you miss out.

Casumo mobile site is awesome, and if you are on the go, you can still join races on mobile devices, whether it be using the mobile website, Android app or iPhone app.

Casumo Casino Races

Join a Reel Race, open the game and start spinning.

You typically get:

  • 2 points for a normal win,
  • 15 points for a big win,
  • 35 points for x15 bet wins,
  • 100 points for x30 bet and
  • 5 points for every 3 wins in a row.

Each race has a limited amount of spins and time available. Once you run out of spins and time, points won’t be awarded. The race ends! Larger prize Race Reels typically have a time limit of 50 minutes, spins limit of 425 and the minimum bet of €/£0.40 per spin. The smaller prize pool races have a time limit of 20 minutes, spins limit of 175 and a minimum bet of €/£0.40 per spin.

You can track your competitors by hovering the mouse over any player on the leaderboard to see their points and spins they have remaining.

Based on previous winners, it seems 450 to 500 points will see you win the free spins reel races. I have also seen free spin reel races wins for as little as 235 points.

We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to try to compete against other players. It adds a dynamic element to merely watching a slot spin hoping for a big win. Casumo make it very easy to track your progress and the leaderboard showing current points and spins remaining of other tournament players is a great feature. Best of all, the Reel Races tournaments run every 30 minutes, 24 hours per day with a once a day £2000 cash prize tournament.

Casumo is licensed with the UK Gambling Commission. They attract plenty of new players from across Europe, and we think this will keep people engaged. If you’re the competitive type, set your calendar to 8 pm and try your luck today!
