The brains behind Thrills Casino and Superlenny are back on their creative wagon, building a brand new casino that is unlike any other that has been seen before. It’s almost impossible to be truly unique in the casino world these days; they all offer the same games and similar promotions, so it’s really the design of the site that gives them much more scope to stand out. And stand out, Kaboo most certainly will.
In his interview below, Nils-Petter Wieslander, CEO of Kaboo casino, describes just exactly how they plan to make this casino different and why you should be getting excited already. With Kaboo casino we can expect something much darker than we’ve ever seen before. Often casinos go past the bright and cheerful route to try and combat the inherent feeling that playing casino is somehow wrong, but Kaboo have gone right the other way and filled their site with demons and intensity.
-Most importantly; when will Kaboo be launched?
(Well – Kaboo has existed since before the Earth itself was created. Kaboo.com is merely a chance for us mortals to tap into it’s secrets. No, seriously..) The first time anyone outside the inner circle is given access will be in early September, when those that have pre-registered will get exclusive access. A little later on, we open the portal for the public during a 2 week beta period and thereafter in late September, it will be open for partners to refer customers.
-When will Kaboo mobile be launched?
Kaboo.com is mobile first, and as such Kaboo.com is built from scratch using the absolute latest techniques so it is not only mobile first, it is fully responsive with a smooth transition between any device used such as mobile, tablet or desktop. If you still have a Nokia 3310 we unfortunately can’t help you but suggest that you visit an internet café, do some spins on kaboo.com, cash in your winnings and invest in a smartphone.
-Let’s get down to it: what is so special about online casino Kaboo?
Just about everything except the game window that hosts the games content.
With Kaboo.com we have put focus on the player experience around the worlds best games. We all know that the first seconds is when we judge if we like something or not. Hence, a lot of work has gone into making pixel perfect designs and the user experience very fluid. The design theme is, compared to most other casino sites, a bit darker and a lot more exciting. We wanted to create an immersive casino unlike anything else. Inspiration is taken from movies and modern console games. We like to position ourselves as the next generation casino for grown-ups.
Once the first wow-feeling is over the user will experience a casino adventure that will constantly evolve. A story based casino adventure where we will release chapters from “The Book of Kaboo.com”. Each chapter will tell a story around a selected casino game and challenge the player to complete missions. Missions have an infinite amount of levels until the Eclipse hides the portal to Kaboo.com and the levels and perks restart again. With infinite amount of levels there will always be a mission to be completed and by doing so; earning Echoes. What are Echoes?
At Kaboo.com we have a secondary currency that we call Echoes. Echoes can be exchanged to Free Spins. Compared to most other casinos where you get X amount of Free Spins locked down to Starburst or other games with lower spin value, we let the user decide how he/she wants to spend the Echoes. Exchanging Echoes to 100 Spins in Starburst at 10 cent spins or 10 Spins in Dracula at €1 spin value. We will offer plenty of games with different spin values to choose from. Winning from these Spins are without wagering requirement so it’s cash in your pocket.
Everyone will get at least 5 Echoes just by joining Kaboo. Then we have a fantastic welcome package. 100% bonus up to €200 as well as 100 Free Spins.
-Specifically, In which way is it different to SuperLenny and Thrills?
SuperLenny is a super cool character with a traditional look and feel of betting. A traditional yet modern way that suits the experienced punter and those that want to place a bet on a sports event as well as playing casino in a stylish manner.
Thrills is a friendly casino where everyone is welcome and that constantly throw surprises at the players. A family of fun characters that guides you through a casino experience that is easy to digest.
Kaboo.com is not for everyone. Its a darker and action packed casino with a story based setup that will change in look and feel as the adventure continues.
All casinos that Betit Group operates also have the friendliest and experienced customer support as well as fast payments solutions that will make sure your winnings are in your pocket extremely fast.
– What does Kaboo stand for?
Kaboo.com is the portal to a parallel universe called Kaboo. Kaboo.com is positioned to heavy gamers that want to experience a new take on their favourite games. It should be like watching a movie that connects to your game play. We are also aiming for new target groups that haven’t been looking in the direction of casinos so far. We really think we will be on both end of the spectrum here.
-Will the casino be like a book or like a game?
Neither, its a casino. The design is more game/movie inspired and the mission and campaigns will be presented through chapters from the Book of Kaboo. Chapters can take different forms which creates an inspiring framework for us to constantly develop to stay attractive to new and existing users and thus extending the lifecycle of our important players.
-Which geographical markets to you target?
We have a Maltese and UK licence and hence target most of the European countries. However, our core markets will be Sweden, Norway, Finland and UK.
