Campeonbet Casino has been around since 2016, however it mainly existed in Latin America and focused on sports. Today you can still use the site to place pre-game or live bets through its extensive sportsbook, but you can also access a whole host of other entertainment. Licensed in Curaçao, players can now also while away a few hours across casino, poker and live dealer games. Sounds good so far, but how did things pan out once I put this online casino to the test? Let’s find out.
Campeonbet Casino – The Highlights
- Vast range of games and playing options
- CAD and Canada-friendly payment methods accepted
- Regular promotions and bonuses for loyal players
The first thing I’d like to say is that the site’s promotions page it a bit of a minefield. Many promotions are crammed together, given confusing titles and listed in no particular order. In fact, it took a fair bit of scrolling about to determine which was the actual welcome offer. Here’s what I’ve narrowed all the chaos down to:
Campeonbet Casino is giving players the chance to scoop up a 125% cash match up to a whopping C$1,000. However, as always, I never advise getting too excited until we have a proper look at the fine print. In this case, there’s quite a lot you should know before you deposit your cash. Wagering requirements are set to 45 x, which is quite high compared to what most casinos are offering. The minimum deposit is set at C$20. Wagering only counts if you play slots, and these must be from Play’n GO, NetEnt, BetSoft, Playson, Fugaso, iSoftBet, and Gameart. This definitely limits the player in an annoying way.
There’s also another welcome offer, differentiated as being the VIP welcome offer. First time depositors can opt for 125% up to C$1,000. But since both this and the previous bonuses are only valid on the first deposit, players can’t go for both. Unfortunately this bonus is only open to those willing to deposit a minimum of C$1,000, and wagering requirements are even higher 50 x. Even more of a concern is that you can only use your bonus on slots from Play’n GO and Habanero.
The ‘Promotions’ page also displays a bunch of other bonus offers. You can claim bonus money for using specific payment methods, bonuses just for live casino or sports, plus regular reload bonuses offered by the casino. Be sure to take a very close look at the T’s and C’s for each.
With so much entertainment on offer, I decided to provide a brief overview, giving you the full picture in as few words as possible.
Campeonbet is a successful bookmaker, and this isn’t a surprise considering that’s where the online casino has its roots. Players looking to have a flutter can do so across dozens of sports and hundreds of markets. The biggest of all these is football (or soccer to some of our readers), and players can take advantage of some very flexible betting options across a huge selection of ongoing tournaments. eSports falls under this section, broadcasting popular video games competitions in real-time. Despite betting options that cater for the big and small budget, the site doesn’t offer the best odds out there.
This is a large section packed with games from well known providers like Microgaming, NetEnt, World Match, Evolution Gaming, Betsoft, Nyx Interactive, Play’n GO, NextGen Gaming, iSoftBet, PariPlay, OMI Gaming, Multislot, Ezugi, Playson, Elk Studios, Endorphina, Casino Technology, GameArt, Habanero, Betconstruct, Genii, Pragmatic Play, Mr. Slotty, Join Games and Iron Dog Studios.
Because Campeonbet hosts games from so many providers players are treated to hundreds of slots including classic three reel slots and modern five reel games with progressive jackpots. But if slots aren’t your thing you can always try your luck on instant games based around scratch cards and lottery titles.
Video poker can enjoy a bigger than average selection across Joker Poker, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker and Deuces Wild. But fun on the felt doesn’t stop there, thanks to a range of other table games including Punto Banco, European Roulette, Blackjack VIP and Baccarat.
Players can also access a varied selection of live dealer games. These come from three main providers: Evolution Gaming, BetConstruct and Ezugi. The biggest offering comes from Evolution, with a handful of games from the other two providers. Players can choose from:
- Roulette (multiple varieties)
- Blackjack (multiple varieties)
- Texas Hold’em
- Three Card Poker
- Caribbean Stud Poker
- Dragon Tiger
- Dream Catcher
- Side Bet City
- Super Sic Bo
- Deal or No Deal
- Lightning Dice
The site feels very dated, with a clumpy template that takes a while to figure out. Despite the fact that Campeonbet offers a wide selection of game types, these are hidden behind a tiny carousel that slides jerkily only when you click on the navigation arrows. While the site designers thought to include filters for search options, they failed to offer anything other than the ability to search by provider. Searching by volatility, type of table game or theme, would have been useful options.
The site also appears to have been hastily thrown together as certain tabs like ‘Promotions’ appear twice, with one of the buttons left inactive. The site also diverts users to a new page containing a step by step guide on how to get your welcome bonus. This somehow manages to make the situation even more confusing. I can’t understand why a simple promo code won’t do.
If you’re a big budget player then the first thing you need to know is that Campeonbet Casino has a C$5,000 daily total win limit. This is extremely unfair because it means that if you succeed in winning more than this amount in a day, you simply won’t be paid out.
But if this doesn’t bother you then you can proceed to make deposits and withdrawals with a fairly standard (yet bigger than average) set of payment methods. Among the options are:
The site is a little vague about withdrawal times, which does concern me slightly. However, since there are no major online complaints on the matter I would say we’re looking at the industry average of 24 hours for e-wallets, and about 3 to 5 days on other methods.
Live Chat is becoming an industry standard support option, and its also available at Campeonbet. Unfortunately it isn’t available 24 hours a day, simply between the hours of 09:00 and 21:00 CET. Canadian players are allowed a bit of an eye roll here, as this online casino joins the long list of those who cater to the Canada market, but only to a certain point.
There’s no phone number either, which means if live chat isn’t an option players are left with two lines of support; Email and the standard FAQ section. But hey, at least support is available in English, and even Spanish, German, and Portuguese.
Campeonbet Casino seems to have a lot to offer on the surface, but overall I feel like the site has tried to do too much. Many players might prefer to bet on sports on a specialist site offering better odds, while leaving casino play to another site. There are also a couple of worrying reports regarding the online casino withholding funds unfairly, so keep your ear to the ground for recent reports before depositing any money.
This links up to my second concern of a lack of 24-hour support. If players encounter problems, it’s extremely frustrating if you’re unable to resolve them immediately. Finally I’d like to point out that with the welcome bonus set to high wagering requirements and other restrictions, and the total lack of a loyalty program, players don’t receive the warmest of welcomes.
