Trada Casino is an award-winning casino site with a sleek design. With a big selection of game providers, like NetEnt and Quickfire, you can expect a varied experience here. Trada’s motto is ‘fun, fast, fair’, so let’s see if that plays out in reality.
Trada Casino goes for a black and white theme, which looks very smart and clean. You get a splash of colour from a large image panel, showing the latest offers along with artwork from the slots. There are no special mascots here but the branding is still strong and the site does feel distinct.
The registration process is quick and doesn’t ask much of you. The inner pages, such as the promotions area, use big tiles and animations to feel a little more interesting. You have clear links on the top of each page, with dropdown menus, to get you around. A floating live chat button gives you quick support access.
There is a clearly-labelled support area on Trada Casino, which tells you a little about the support team. You can reach the team via live chat, email and post, but not phone. This is a shame, since the live chat is not 24/7, but rather 9am to 11pm.
Still, the team are knowledgeable and respond fast, as you’d expect from a team which won the Best Customer Service award from Casinomeister. You also have access to FAQs which cover all the usual aspects of creating an account and banking.
The promotions area has a calendar which is ideal for seeing what’s on and when, including upcoming offers. This is nicely crafted and a fun approach to promos. Offers on site are varied- at the time of writing there was an offer to get 40 super spins on Aloha, for depositing £100. However, winnings are subject to 35x wagering.
There are multiple welcome bonuses. Your first deposit is matched 100% up to £100, with 50 free spins of Twin Spin. You can also enter another code for a 75% match up to £100, then a third for 50% up to £100. These have a fairly low 25x wagering requirement.
The main games area has categories to help you find slots, but no search box. Still, it loads fast and is easy to see. You can use a dropdown to pick specific providers.
Games load into a large window with a special Trada Casino overlay. This includes a themed background image for the chosen slot and a top bar with account and cashier links. It’s pretty good but does distract the eye a little and lacks an option to go full-screen instead.
Trada Casino makes no mention of mobile play on the site. There are no apps for this site, but you can visit it on your phone or tablet browser. This should work with the majority of new devices.
The mobile site is actually very smooth and has all the same branding and design as the main site, though it’s a little cluttered. You have a sliding side menu to help you narrow down the games or access account controls. Games play well in landscape view.
Trada Casino is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. The site also has tough security for all pages and user details, using 3D Secure.
The site has sections discussing fairness and pledging to uphold rigorous standards. The games used on site are from developers that verify fairness with random number generator testing. You’ll also find good responsible gaming information here.
Trada Casino has a big game selection, thanks to having six providers. These include NetEnt, Microgaming, Playson (with the excellent Down the Pub game), PariPlay, WMS and iSoftBet (with the Paranormal Activity slot). There are hundreds of titles here, including all the latest HD games like Dead or Alive. There are a lot of quirky choices, too, but not that many jackpot slots.
Table games are fairly well represented, with multiple roulette, baccarat and blackjack titles. A few more variants would be nice. You have video poker and several live dealer games by Evolution, too, but nothing unique.
Trada Casino accepts credit and debit cards like Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and Visa Electron, plus EntroPay. You can use Skrill and Neteller e-wallets, SoFort and PaySafeCard, too. A good mix, but a few big names missing.
The cashier system is really quick to use and better yet, withdrawal times are quick too. 2-24 hours is the time Trada aims for, for all customers. There are no fees for banking, as far as possible.
Trada Casino’s VIP programme is somewhat unclear. You can click on a VIP link in the promotions area, but this just goes to a form, to tell them about your interest in being VIP. More information would be ideal!
On the plus side, there’s a very clear-cut cashback system for everyday loyalty. Each £70 spent on site gives you £2 back, without any wagering requirements. This is a lot more direct and easy to access than a standard loyalty points system, which has to be converted to credit.
Trada Casino feels different to other sites, thanks to a bold design, unusual promotion schedule, cashback programme and other little touches. The site is not always perfect, but a strong customer support team and a huge game selection makes up for this in spades. Trada makes good on it’s fun, fast and fair promise, so it’s well worth checking out.
