Owned by Virtual Gaming Worlds (VGW), Chumba Casino is an online, sweepstakes-based casino that is licensed by the country of Malta. Virtual Gaming Worlds was founded in 2010 by Laurence Escalante, who then went on to launch Chumba Casino in 2017.
Categorized as a “social gaming platform”, let’s check out what makes Chumba Casino so unique.
|Mobile accessibility||No mobile app|
|Available in almost every state||Conversion can be hard to find|
|Use virtual currency instead of cash|
In the realm of Chumba Casino, welcome offers do not pertain to real, cold, hard cash. For $10, you will get two million gold coins and a bonus 2 Chumba Casino’s Sweepstakes Coins.
You can redeem Sweeps Coins for cash prizes on the site, but note that you cannot use real money on the site itself. You can, however, use real money to purchase coin packs.
Also keep your eyes peeled for other deals, such as discounts when buying coins.
Players at Chumba Casino have two options of registration: Signing up through the site or signing up using your Facebook account.
To register using Facebook, there is a link you can click right in the registration process to login to your Facebook account, which will then create an account at Chumba.
However, if you prefer the “old fashioned way”, you simply just have to submit your name, email, password and agreeing to the terms of service. It’s that fast and simple.
While we are using a term such as “purchase”, it should be noted again that Chumba Casino does not use real money, but rather the money converts to virtual currency.
For withdrawing, players must submit a form of documentation to prove you are who you say you are. From here, Chumba Casino will send you a 10-digit PIN to your email. This is the PIN you must use for all future redemptions. Withdrawals can take up to five days to process.
Venturing through the website, there doesn’t appear to be a breakdown of this that is clear and easy to find, so adding information about this in a more “upfront” way would be ideal.
