Graphics and Software

Tropica Casino uses Rival software to power its suite of casino games. The software client of the casino is available in the Download or ‘Instant Play’. The games of Rival not only boasts innovative graphics but they are also replete with colourful and easy on the eye animations.

Software and Special Features

Players who prefer the ‘Instant Play’ software must first install the latest Adobe Flash plugin, otherwise the software will not run at optimal capacity. When it comes to the protection of your personal and your financial information, the site uses state-of-the-art encryption software (SSL). The moment its anti-fraud software detects fraudulent activity it raises a red flag and investigates the player’s account immediately.

Variety of Games

Tropica Casino employs Rival software to power its game library of 100 plus games. As a software provider Rival does not offer that many games, however, it does manage to stand out in a very crowded market place.

The game variety is best describe as “a la carte” and built with Adobe Flash which is compatible with all web-based and downloadable clients. You can pick and choose from a decent variety of 3D video slots like Big Cash Win, Fantastic Fruit, Heroes Realm, 5 Reel Bingo, Fantastic Fortune, Golden Man, Travel Bug, Wacky Wedding and many more. 

Although Tropica Casino’s table game variety is not something to write home about it still covers the most popular ones. Games that can be played are Blackjack variants, Baccarat, Craps, Red Dog, Pai Gow Poker and Roulette (European and America). Players who enjoy playing speciality games can try their luck at Keno, Instant Win Bingo and Scratch Card varieties. 

Sign-up Bonus

Suffice it to say the welcome bonus Tropica Casino offers new players will attract any medium and high roller. It offers a 3-stage deposit bonus. Starting with a 200% match bonus, then with a 100% match bonus and ending with a whopping match bonus of 400%! Before you can qualify for any bonus you must deposit $25. 


The promotions at Tropica Casino will suit any player’s palate. It starts with a 3-tiered promotional package to attract the business of new customers. Loyal players with receive a cashback of 10% on monthly deposits, comp points will be awarded for regular game play and a VIP program offers superior incentives. When you sign up for the casino’s newsletter it will keep you updated pertaining to its latest promotional offers and new game releases.

wagering Requirements

The play-through requirements attached to the first deposit bonus of 200% up to $500 is 50 times the bonus. It works like this. You deposit $100, Tropica Casino will match your initial deposit with another $200 (200%). Play with $300.

Before you can cash out your winnings you must stake 50x$200=$10,000. Only slot games count 100% towards the clearing of the wagering requirements. You don’t need to deposit or win $10,000. It simply means that $10,000 is the total amount of bets you must place. If you bet $ per spin on slots you will need to spin 10,000 to complete the wagering requirements.

The no deposit of $25 carries a wagering requirement of 50 times the bonus.

The following games count 0% towards the wagering requirements: Baccarat, Craps, Double Up, Keno, Progressive Jackpots and Roulette.


Presently Tropica Casino offers 4 progressive jackpots that’s linked to Rival’s progressive jackpot network. They are Major Moolah, One Million Reels BC, Money Magic and Strike Gold. At the time of writing Rival’s combined progressive games offered a pay out of $90,444.

I played Major Moolah for free and spinned the reels a couple of times with very little wins to show for it. The max. bet per spin is $3. The games are quite volatile with wins far and few in between. When you play progressive jackpots always bet the maximum bet. 

Banking Options

You can view the various deposit options at your disposal by clicking on the ”Banking” options tab. Before you can wager at the casino you must deposit $25 or more.

All withdrawals are normally processed within a period of 3 to 5 business days. Withdrawal request through e-wallets (Neteller or Moneybookers) will be processed within 48 hours.
