Since the late nineties, Casino Tropez has been a longstanding favorite for many players - especially European gamers, high rollers and fans of Playtech Software. Having developed a strong reputation over the years, the areas in which Casino Tropez stands out from many other Playtech licensees, is their VIP customer service, mobile gaming, liver dealer games, payouts/cashier services and bonuses/promotions (Details are provided further in this review).
A highly transparent gaming operation, Casino Tropez holds the licensing and regulation credentials necessary for ensuring safe and fair internet betting at its finest. Ownership is through Hardway Investments Ltd. - an Antigua & Barbuda based eGaming firm and Playtech's largest licensee (managing ten online casinos). Financial transactions are processed by the Cypress based Fastengine Limited.
Regulation is held through the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC), which was one of the first large scale gaming commissions to begin actively licensing and regulating online casinos in the nineties. Over the years, KGC has worked closely with eCOGRA to encourage casinos to meet higher standards of regulation than required by law, and has also been white-listed by the UK Gambling Commission according to their strict advertising guidelines.
As with all Playtech powered casinos, Casino Tropez's gaming platform of 100+ downloadable games (also available in no-download Flash) is inherently fair. Odds are better than brick 'n mortar casinos - an accreditation confirmed via Playtech's certification from Technical Systems Testing (TST), which can be viewed on the Casino Tropez website. TST is a UK white-listed company approved for issuing software compliance tests and payout percentage reports. Based in Vancouver, Canada, TST is well known in both the brick 'n mortar casino gambling and online gaming sectors.
Casino Tropez was one of the first online casinos to offer an ongoing welcome bonus and multi-tiered reload bonuses from month to month. The initial welcome bonus goes for either a two-tier bonus of 100% up to $/£/€100 Free or a 50% High Roller Bonus up to $/£/€500 Free, followed by a 50% bonus up to $/£/€200 Free. $/£/€50 Friend referrals and ongoing reload bonuses (in addition to VIP Club promotions) include $/£/€2,700 in bonuses every Sunday (100% up to 100 Free for 27 weeks straight). The default wager requirement is just 20x, but for most players (including UK citizens), the play-through is 30x. Game restrictions apply.
Another way players can earn some free betting money is by using one of the many reputable third-party eWallets accepted by the Casino Tropez cashier. These pay a 10-15% bonus on every deposit made with Neteller, InstaDebit, MoneyBookers, Click and Buy, UKash, Click2Pay, WebMoney, Moneta, ECO Card, iDeal, Giro Pay, Citadel and more. All transactions are guaranteed secure, being protected with sophisticated RSA key encryption, while account information details are kept private and safe with hacker-free Secure Socket Layer firewalls.
Another bonus worth mentioning specifically pertains to the mobile phone software platform at Casino Tropez. One of the best mobile gaming bonuses on the internet, players need only deposit $/£/€20 to receive $/£/€100 in gambling bucks (a 500% bonus). As for the mobile software platform, it is compatible with the top cellular makes and models, including Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Siemens and more. Hundreds of models are covered, including over 100 Nokia and 50 Sony Ericsson models alone. Mobile games include Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Video Poker and seven slots - Desert Treasure, A Night Out, Captains Treasure, Tropic Reels, Goblins Cave and the wildly popular progressive jackpot slots Gold Rally and Safe Cracker. To get started playing on your mobile phone, simply select your make and model, enter your cell phone number, and choose the game to download. An SMS text message will then be sent with a download link.
For a more personal gaming experience, Tropez also runs a live dealer online casino via Playtech Software's "Live Platform" and beautiful European dealers. Playtech has one of the largest selections of live dealer games of any other live dealer casino, including live dealer Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Hold'em and Sic Bo.
While Casino Tropez offers a complete online gaming package, their greatest strength is in customer service and VIP treatment. These days, offering 24/7 customer service via telephone, email and live chat isn't enough to garner "Best Customer Service" awards. Casino Tropez goes further by offering fast payouts, cordial and competent service and many VIP perks. They have done so since Day One back in the nineties and continue to lead the way as one of Playtech Software's top online casinos.
