Whats not so hot?
Trada Casino splashes out their motto on their home page as “Fun, Fast, Fair” and we put it up to our test. Can we call it the best online casino in the UK? In this review we look past the usual fanfare of visuals and get down to the name of the game.
Trada Casino has been in operation for 5 years and operates under a UK Casino license (through UKGC). It meets all criteria as set by the gambling commission and only accepts players 18 years and older. It is accredited and certified by industry advocates such as CasinoMeister and AskGamblers. The casino’s more than 1,000 games are driven by well-known and trusted software houses like NetEnt, PariPlay, and Evolution Gaming to name a few. The games are playable on computers and mobile devices anytime anywhere.
As is our custom we conduct the necessary due diligence on a casino before we list it on our site. To date Trada has no complaints against it nor has it been blacklisted which makes it a reputable site to players from the United Kingdom and from across Europe. In our opinion we find it to be one of the top 10 casinos online.
Exclusive bonus for players
Players from United States not accepted
Constant welcome bonuses are on offer at Trada Casino, for example 50 ‘Immortal Spins on Microgaming’s classic Immortal Romance is offered and unlocked on a deposit of €/£20. Other promotions up for grabs are Daily promotions and wager-free cash back opportunities of up to 25%, regular deposit/free spins with no wagering restrictions and comps are earned as you play.
The VIP program is tailored in such a manner that VIPs and loyal depositors get money back on their losses. Currently the rebates are £/$/€2 for every £/$/€70 wagered, depending on certain weightings games like roulette, blackjack and video poker have higher weightings, so rebates are earned quicker.
New Customer Offer, T&C’s Apply 18+. Please gamble responsibly.
Regular depositors and VIPs can join the casino’s rewards program that includes ‘Cash Back’ on all deposits made. The rebate on losses is calculated at a rate of £/$/€2 for every £/$/€70 wagered, different game weightings are brought into the equation as well. We like the cash back system because it’s earned at a faster rate when higher weighted games are player, ‘higher weighted’ games are video poker and tables games (blackjack, roulette, baccarat). The only downside to the system is that it takes a while to build up your comps on lower weighted games (slots).
With the mass of games mentioned previously each player is spoiled for choice with slots such as, Immortal Romance, Jurassic Park, Shogun of Time, Dead or Alive, Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest, Dead or Alive 2 are waiting to be played.
We singled out Microgaming’s newest video slots buster Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs. It is an epic game stocked with incredible bonus rounds, RTP of above 96%, high visual fidelity and pays a top jackpot of 5,000x your stake. New games are constantly added by the wide range of software providers.
Patrons should hurry to the table games and try out the 3D Roulette table game for some 3D action; nothing beats the sound of a roulette wheel. Some of the popular table games include Punto Banco (better known as Baccarat), blackjack variants, Red Dog, craps, baccarat and poker.
Then there is the Big 5 Blackjack game which we love which reminds us of the scene in the Austin Powers movie where he gets dealt two cards totaling 5, the dialogue between him and the dealer goes down like this: “I’ll stay” / “I suggest you hit sir” / “I also like to live dangerously”/ “Well, I won’t lie to you, cards are not my bag baby”. If only we could all be so blasé about chasing the elusive 21!
Single and multi-hand poker games like Tens or Better, jacks or Better and Double Double catch the eye in this category. Some of the video poker titles sport RTPs of above 98%. The player received 5 cards which he/she has to build the best possible hand. When you play video poker online always bet the maximum 5 credits, hold the right cards and do not rush your hand – take your time.
What more can we say about the live dealer casino at Trada Casino that has not been said before. If you missed it here is a quick update, each game whether it is live blackjack or roulette is streamed in real-time to your computer. The dealers are friendly, professional and chatty. The live casino is unique because it is interactive and simulates a land casino, instead of being in an actual casino you are playing the games from the comfort of your home. If you want to know more about a Live Casino this page is a must.
