Review of Trada Casino
Trada Casino came up on the Casino Listings radar after we kept hearing from players that the site was great, and we received many recommendations to see it for ourselves. After taking a long, hard look at the casino, I have to say that I feel the hype was well-deserved, as Trada has quick withdrawals, a ton of great games to play, and excellent customer service.
Software and game selection
Trada has an easy to navigate website that is well organised and simple to operate. Registering an account is very easy and only took a minute of my time. All of the site's games are playable in browser and they are organised in a grid layout that shows both a thumbnail and text name for each game, which makes the games easily scannable. There are links that allow you to divide the games up into categories such as slots, live games, and table games, as well as by the different game suppliers. You can also find a game almost instantly by typing its name in a quick search box at the top of the games list. The site works equally well on a PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet.
The game selection at Trada is very impressive, with the casino offering games from Net Entertainment, Microgaming, IGT, Playson, WMS, iSoftbet, Rabcat, Quickspin, Pariplay, and more. This gives players access to more than 600 games, the majority of which are video slots, although there are also classic slots available for play as well. If there is a downside to be found here, it's that I couldn't find any progressive jackpot games, which means you likely won't be winning a one-off multi-million Euro prize here.
It seems like more and more betting sites are heading toward just offering slots but thankfully Trada is bucking this trend by featuring a good assortment of table games, including Blackjack, Pontoon, Roulette, Baccarat, Oasis Poker, and more. There are also quite a variety of video poker games to choose from. Even better are the live dealer games that the casino has added, which puts you right in the middle of a game broadcast from studios. Table limits on the live Blackjack, Roulette, or Baccarat tables range from as low as £5 all the way up to £5000.
Banking and customer support options
The banking system is well fleshed out at Trada, with the site accepting major credit cards, e-wallets, and direct bank transfers for deposits. The casino promises to pay withdrawals to all players within 24 hours. While withdrawals are reversible until processed, the casino offers a manual flushing service which means that you can contact support as soon as you file your withdrawal and ask them to process it so that you cannot reverse it. I made sure to test these claims and the good news is that I can confirm that I was paid to a Neteller account a couple of hours after requesting my first withdrawal. Note that there is a £10,000 weekly withdrawal limit on winnings which is middle of the range compared to casinos I have played at recently. Although I didn't see any progressive jackpot games during my time there, any winnings from them should they be added in future are exempt from the payout limit clause.
Customer support is available from 9am-11pm UK time every day of the week via live chat and email. While it would have been nice to see telephone support included, I still found the support to be up to scratch, as they were able to answer the questions I had which included where to find the payout percentages for the games, what the withdrawal limit on my account was, and how to set up a deposit limit.
Security, safety, and responsible gaming
Trada Casino uses standard SSL encryption technology to protect player information as its sent between your computer and the casino's servers. The site uses this encryption at all times, whether you are browsing, playing, or transacting with the banking department.
Trada is licensed and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, which is the world's premier online casino licensing jurisdiction. In accordance with UKGC rules, it discloses that it segregates player account funds from operational funds, though only meeting what the UKGC classifies as a "basic" level of protection. While this is the same as the vast majority of casinos on the market, I feel that anything below "medium" level protection is little better than no protection at all. So it is certainly one area that this casino could improve on to be right up there with the very best.
You are able to set limits on your account once you have registered and logged in. This includes preset limits on the amount you may deposit, wager, or lose at the casino. There is also a "reality check" function that allows you to set a time interval where the casino will notify you with a message telling you how long you have been playing and how much you have won or lost during that time. Another nice touch that can be found in the responsible gaming area of the site is a link to a document containing return to player (RTP) numbers for every game in the casino.
It appears that our users know best, as Trada lives up to the expectations set by the glowing feedback we received from our community members. I really enjoyed the large selection of games, transparency regarding payout numbers, and fast payout speeds. There is definitely room for improvement in some areas, most notably in the segregation of player funds, but this is still a very good casino that I can heartily recommend you try.
