Casumo is an online gambling brand that has been around since 2012. It started out as an online casino and in March 2018, it launched a sportsbook for the first time. It is licensed by the likes of the Malta Gaming Authority and caters to bettors all across the world, including in Canada.

The qualifying bet can be placed on any sports betting market, once the selection has odds of 1.6 or greater.
You have a week after opening your account to make the qualifying bet and to use the free bet. You get to keep the winnings of the free bet, which is ideal as you do not have to meet any wagering requirements. And there are no restrictions on what odds or markets you can use it for. As soon as you place the qualifying bet the free bet credits will be credited to your account, there is no promo code needed.
