Gamb is an online casino that has taken the liberty to be what it wants to be, and in so doing has become divisive. On the one hand it includes a superb betting platform, one of the best ones we have seen, on top of numerous casino games fit for every player out there, while on the other Gamb has taken the decided to act somewhat carelessly by including crypto-only payment methods and narrow yet complicated bonuses. The following review will try to act as an arbiter to both sides.
Bonuses at Gamb are surprisingly few, and somewhat different that what we have come to expect as normal. The Welcome Bonus is quite normal but the other two are questionably weighed down by unexpected requirements.
New GAMBer Welcome, a 100% Welcome Bonus: The user is granted a 100% increase of his initial deposit, as well as 100 free spins. The bonus is capped at $300, and the client is required to invest at least $10. If the bonus is not completed in 30 days, the bonus will be forfeited.
The free spins are separated in batches: the first part of 20 free spins is available on Moon Princess; the second batch on 30 free spins on Big Bass Splash is available after investing a minimum of $100; and the last free spins package becomes available after a $200 deposit has been invested after which the user can use 50 free spins on Book Of Dead. There are wagering requirements for the free spins of at least 5 times before the client can make a withdrawal.
Also be aware that certain games are not allowed for the bonus.
Cashback on First Week: Basically the ability to get a 15% cashback in the first 7 days of opening an account. Note that the cashback is calculate on net losses only on during that seven day period; without net losses there is no cashback. The bonus is automatically activated for every user once she opens an account with Gamb for the first time. This is not the typical cashback bonus, and honestly we don’t really find it that appealing.
GAMBoost, Combo Boost: With every combination bet that a user places there is a chance to be granted a bonus of up to 50%. Only 1.4 (2/5) or higher odds apply. The bonus does not apply to single bets, but to a winning combo of at least 4 selections, within a System bet. However, a specific market has to be taken in consideration otherwise the user risks the bonus being voided. These bonuses are added as percentages on odds. There are a ton of bonus terms and conditions that really make this bonus a very confusing endeavor. The terms and conditions here are difficult to follow, and seem way to prolonged to even consider the bonus in the first place.
Consider that clients have to fully follow all bonus terms and conditions in order to qualify for a withdrawal request. Any small slipup will result in the casino taking away all bonus privileges.
The parent firm Gamb, Entretenimiento Rojo B.V, is fully licensed in Curacao, and authorized to provide online gambling services.
Still considered as an offshore license by many, even underqualified by certain actors, Curacao has actually been able to survive this long as a regulator in an industry rife with competitors on every side, and despite the skeptics’ account of it, has been on an upward curve, overseeing and licensing some superb online casinos.
Even if Gamb does not feel like the highpoint in Curacao’s career, this online casino platform is still able to assert the regulator’s authority and constant aspiration to be better.
DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWAL
We were taken aback by the fact that the only way advertised as payment gateway is based entirely on a couple of cryptocurrency wallets, all taking up to 20 minutes to process. Payments are processed by a bunch of different crypto exchanges, but readers should not warry considering that the casino is regulated. Even with an offshore license, it seems that Gamb is up for the job to cover all payment requirements as smoothly as it can. Not to mention that more and more online services are either entirely moving away from traditional payment means, or are including crypto wallets as alternative gateways.
The only fees here are the ones issued by the individual payment systems themselves. None are issued by the casino, which is a strong point.
It takes up to up to 24 hours for withdrawals to get processed, which in retrospect is the average waiting time for such processes.
GAMES AND GAME SUPPLIERS
Gamb has made sure to include all the classic games and game styles, as well as equip itself with modern additions on top of a very surprising and neat feature.
Whatever you want, Gamb has. You want video slots, goofy ones or more realistic ones? You got it! You want live casino games with a few surprise additions? Gamb has got you covered. Table games, blackjack, poker, roulette, baccarat, TV games (wheel of fortune, who want’s to be a millionaire, etc), dice games, and so much more.
The video slot game providers are surprisingly shallow, but the range of games still covers the basics gamers have come to expect. The providers here are Booongo, Big Time Gaming, Hacksaw, Nolimit City, OneTouch, Relax Gaming, and Spinomenal.
The main attraction here is definitely the live casino section, but we haven’t even said anything about the SportsBook, Gamb’s highpoint.
A major addition, and a standout one, is the ability to bet on real time sporting events via SportsBook. Users a treated with a live feed from the event and have a whole betting platform in front of them, where they can manage all bets in a seamless and simple way. We were expecting football, tennis, basketball, and even cricket, but when we saw that e-sports betting was available was when we knew that Gamb has taken the next step to integrate itself into the most modern trends. It’s the natural evolution of betting: place your wager on FIFA video game matches, online first person shooters, online action role-playing multiplayer games, and more. We find this to be one of the best and most surprising features about the casino, and a very well managed one.
Some might see a Curacao license and turn away, but the truth is that this jurisdiction has been on the rise as a stable online casino regulator for a while. The license here is not to real issue.
What bothers us where some very odd decisions taken by the casino that do not fit the modern online casino framework all that well. Starting from the lack of slots, to the, some might say, controversial choice to limit payments to crypto wallets, and ending up with the convoluted bonuses.
Yet, even with these, and perhaps despite these, we found allure in Gamb. In the end, it seems that, at least to us, that the casino simply caters to a different type of audience.
