Karamba is a slot-packed online casino founded in 2005 and based in Malta. As the name itself may suggest, they heavily promote the idea of a party site for online gamers.
The word ‘caramba’ is used both in Spanish and in Portuguese, but looking at the friendly and exotic bird which appears on the logo and elsewhere on the website, we are guessing that it refers to the Brazilian Portuguese idiom, where the word is part of an expression used to emphasize something or say that it’s really off-the-charts.
And isn’t Brazil a country one would associate with ‘party time’?
The design of the website is nice and simple, and also very responsive. It’s quite a mainstream, modern design that’s nothing really to write home about. However, the bottom half of the home page doesn’t look very reader-friendly, with the small font and low colour contrast.
Like other relatively young and ‘fun’ online casino companies, Karamba offers a loyalty programme which rewards its ‘party-goers’ from when the first bet is placed. The package includes their fun Welcome Bonus for new players, who will, once they have joined in the party, get their “Daily Karamba” offers which include free spins, free bonuses, match ups, cash backs, raffles and more!
The program gives players Reward Points which can be accrued and used for 2 main purposes:
- Redeem points for free cash to play with.
- Upgrade a player to the next VIP level!
There are 7 VIP levels in total and each level upgrade brings with it additional benefits, including but not limited to: a boost to the number of spins in the Sunday Free Play offer, a decrease in the redemption level of the Reward Point, and an exclusive Welcome Gift proffered to help players celebrate their new VIP status.
The top VIPs can also enjoy additional treats, such as Monthly Cash Backs, a Personal Account Manager and faster withdrawal times.

A slot-focused casino with a party atmosphere and an attractive loyalty programme. Karamba is a fun online casino with an appealing loyalty programme which rewards players right from the start. They offer a wide range of games, brilliant service, support in a number of languages and a large variety of international and local banking alternatives supported in many different currencies, thus providing an excellent experience. Having said that, their collection of games is predominantly reliant on slot machines and instant wins (e.g. scratch cards) but it lacks alternative gambling options for fans of other casino games. Unfortunately and surprisingly, it’s also hard to find progressive jackpot slots, with only 3 available at present which does not include any of the popular and record-breaking titles.
