This is my review of Abo Casino.
My home country of Finland has a few major cities. I, myself, happen to live in Helsinki, which is the capital of Finland. Previously though, another major city of ours, Turku, used to be our capital. The Swedish name of Turku is Åbo, which is exactly what I was thinking when I first saw the name Abo Casino.
As it turns out, Abo Casino has nothing to do with the Turku or Finland for that matter, but it does have everything to do with some other countries. Looking at the website, it immediately became obvious to me that the word “Abo” is a reference to aboriginals. More on this soon!
Abo Casino was released by Libergos Ltd in 2021. We will now see how good this fresh new casino is!
Looks and feel of Abo Casino
So yes, when you first arrive at Abo Casino, you will be greeted with a picture of a muscular man wearing some face paint and some kind of cloth to cover his private areas. It is clear to me that this is a kind of a tribal look and the tropical island that he is on definitely echoes this sentiment. I do not know whether some people would call this cultural appropriation nowadays, but I tend to stay away from those heated conversations anyway…
I had never seen any Libergos casinos before, but Abo Casino seemed to be pretty well structured. While it does not necessarily represent the most beautiful web design I have ever seen, at least the site has all the features that you would want from a self-respecting online casino—including a provider-based search and quick links to the casino support chat!
Bonuses and rewards
When I find new casinos and new casino companies, I am always excited about finding out how it is that they construct their casino bonuses. With Abo Casino, there are five deposit bonuses up for grabs for new customers. These bonuses are worth 100%, 75%, 50%, and 100%, which should give you quite a bit of extra length for your gaming sessions.
The most important thing about any casino bonus is its bonus terms. With Abo Casino, the bonus terms page listed the wagering requirements as 30x, but the support agent and the support center claimed that the wagering would be 40x for the bonus portion. I brought this discrepancy up to the support agent and she told me that the technical team would look into it.
To be honest with you, both 30x and 40x are pretty low, and I was especially delighted to see that only the bonus portion will be counted.
There were 27 game providers at Abo Casino at the time of writing. Among these were great hit factories such as NetEnt, Nolimit City, Play’n GO, Pragmatic Play, Quickspin, Thunderkick, and Yggdrasil. While I did like the inclusion of all of the providers that I just mentioned, I was a little disappointed to not see ELK Studios, Push Gaming, Red Tiger, Microgaming or Big Time Gaming anywhere. Having said that, I guess you do not really need every single one of your favorite studios to be at every online casino!
Those looking to spice up their life with some live casino action can do that with the help of live providers such as Evolution, Vivogaming, and Pragmatic Play Live. There is plenty of fun to go around for everybody here!
Safety and security
When I reviewed Abo Casino, it had not been in operation for more than a couple of months or perhaps weeks. Because of this, it is hard for me to assess the safety and security of said casino—especially because the casino only holds a license from Curacao. The reputation of this license is not a steady one, which means that it is tough to jump to any conclusions when seeing it. As a result, I would just advise you to proceed with appropriate caution when playing at Abo Casino.
Banking options at Abo Casino
The banking methods at Abo Casino include Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, Ecopayz, and bank transfer. According to the support agent, withdrawals are processed in the queue order as soon as possible. When I asked when this was, they sent me a familiar copypaste response that I had seen elsewhere as well (probably casinos that belong to the same group or something): “I would like to tell you the exact time frames, but I don’t want to misinform you.”
Call me paranoid, but it is difficult for me to place my trust in online casinos that are reluctant to tell me how long my withdrawals would potentially take.
Abo Casino’s support facility is open 24/7. As you can read from this review, I had some mixed dealings with the support person. For what it is worth, at least they were friendly and pretty quick to answer most of my queries.
My experience at Abo Casino
The casino bonuses and the broad games selection is Abo Casino’s definite bright spots. Outside of these couple of things, I am unsure what to make of this casino. My recommendation would be to perhaps approach this casino with a smaller deposit to make sure that everything goes as planned.
Abo Casino employs a constant delay tactic in paying players. They will use multiple verification requests hoping that you’ll continue to play down your winnings. They will cancel your payment request stating 1) The money left 2) It’s approved but your bank won’t accept it 3) There is a technical issue 4) There is a financial issue 5) Back to the money left but it’s the bank. I saved all my transcripts and each time I contacted support it was another endless excuse. I am making it a point to complain on every single website and forum until I get my money. I played honestly and respected the terms. They just don’t want to pay.
Good afternoon, Ian!
I represent the support service of Abo Casino.
I am very sorry that you have such a negative impression about our project, but I hasten to assure you that we do not use any tactics.
First of all, as you probably know, we are under the jurisdiction of Blue Curacao and we follow all the rules and our reputation is very important to us.
In order to make a payout – you need to fully verify your gaming account, just like at any casino. Once you provide a full package of documents – the process is started, but there are problems beyond our control. Our financial department has immediately sent a request to support the payment system, and from them, sometimes you have to wait a long time for a reply. At the moment we are doing everything that depends on us and even more.
Please be patient and be calm, you will receive your payment in full.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
