A Thorough Review of Tiger Gaming in 2020

Tiger Gaming is one of those gambling sites you don’t hear much about and maybe didn’t even know existed, but you should. When we first set out to review them, we certainly didn’t expect to see that they’ve been in business since 1999.

When a company has been around that long, it’s usually an indicator that they’re doing the right things. It’s a clue that they offer a good selection of games and betting opportunities and that they pay their customers.

And as best as we can tell, that appears to be the case with Tiger Gaming.

They’re not without their flaws, of course. And we won’t go as far as to say that they’ll be a great match for everyone who reads this review.

However, we do think that Tiger Gaming will work for most players and bettors. This is especially true if you happen to be a casual player who’s looking for an all-around experience that you might find in an offline casino.

With that in mind, we recommend you read this review from start to finish to see if Tiger Gaming is a good match for you.

Tiger Gaming Basic Information

One thing that we found interesting about Tiger Gaming is that they don’t offer a lot of information about themselves on their website. All we could really find is that they’ve been online since 1999.

That’s a long time. The good news is that, when you’ve been around that long, there’s bound to be some information about you on the web. So, we got to Googling Tiger Gaming.

Do you want to know what we found? A whole lot of nothing.

There were a few complaints or concerns from poker players who have yet to be paid their withdrawals. And there were a few players who said they were banned for one reason or another.

We didn’t see much otherwise. There was virtually nothing about their sportsbook or casino on the web. Nearly everything we found revolved around their poker room.

On one hand, this sucks because we want to know more about who Tiger Gaming is – specifically who runs the site and what they’re all about.

On the other hand, this is good news because if there’s virtually no news or forum posts about them on the web, this means that they must be treating customers well. That’s definitely good news.

What we can tell you is that they’re currently licensed through Curacao. This isn’t a great license, but it is better than nothing.

Restricted Countries – Who Can Play

Tiger Gaming currently prohibits players from the following countries from playing or betting for real money on their site.

  • Australia
  • USA
  • France
  • Netherlands
  • Netherlands Antilles
  • South Africa
  • Panama

We recommend you check and recheck their terms and conditions periodically, as the countries they allow or not allow can change.

The Casino

We were a little surprised when we first checked out Tiger Gaming’s casino. They don’t accept US customers, so our first thought was that they must work with several top-tier software developers.

That’s not exactly the case.

We didn’t find games from Microgaming, Playtech, or NetEnt. Chances are this is because Tiger Gaming’s license is through Curacao.

What we did find are games from Betsoft. This isn’t a bad thing by any stretch – just surprising.

The good news is that this means you’ll have access to a large variety of quality casino games. This includes table games, video poker, and slot machines. The games they’re most known for are their 3D slots. We’ll talk about those a little more later on.

Tiger Gaming also has live dealer games. These come from Visionary iGaming (VIG). There are some things we like about their live casino software and a few things we’re not fans of.

We’ll cover all that stuff and much more in the following sections.

Table Games

Here are the table games we found during our review.

  • Single Deck Blackjack
  • American Blackjack
  • Multi-Hand Blackjack
  • Spanish Blackjack
  • Blackjack Switch
  • Double Exposure Blackjack
  • Super 7 Blackjack
  • 21 Burn Blackjack
  • Pontoon Blackjack
  • European Blackjack
  • European Roulette
  • Roulette
  • Single Zero Roulette
  • Common Draw roulette
  • Craps
  • Zoom Roulette
  • American Roulette
  • Caribbean Poker
  • 3 Card Poker
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Draw High Low
  • Ride’m Poker
  • 3 Card Rummy
  • Let It Ride Poker
  • Red Dog
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • Oasis Poker
  • Poker3
  • Baccarat

This is a pretty good selection of games. Nearly half of them are blackjack and roulette variations, which should make enthusiasts happy.

They also have more than a dozen other games. Most of them are common casino titles. The exceptions include Oasis Poker and Poker3.

Poker3 is an interesting game. This is a heads-up poker game where you play against a 3D opponent. It has elements of Texas Hold’em, Caribbean Stud, and Casino Hold’em. We tested it and thought it was a lot of fun.

As for stakes, most games will let you play for as little as $1. This should satisfy players who’re on a budget.

On the high end, you can expect to find limits as high as $500. We didn’t check every game, so it’s possible that you find something higher. But the most common max limits we found were $250, and only a couple of blackjack tables offered $500 limits, so we wouldn’t hold our breaths.

These limits should work for most players. But it’d be nice to see stakes of $1,000 or higher for the higher-limit players.

One other complaint we have about their games is the screens themselves. The games open in a new window. However, these windows are fixed – you can’t move them around your screen. This is a pain in the butt because if the window opens half off-screen, there’s no way to fix it other than to close and reopen it.

We also didn’t find any games that allowed you to play for free money. This would be a nice option to have so that you could test games to see if you like them before committing to playing with real money. It’s also a great way to learn the rules without taking on any risk.

That’s the absolute worst we could find, though, which says a lot about their table game selection. Our opinion is that most lower- to medium-stakes table game players will be plenty happy here.

Video Poker

The following are the video poker games we found during our review.

  • Jacks or Better
  • Jokers Wild
  • Deuces Wild
  • All American
  • Bonus Poker
  • Double Bonus Poker
  • Double Jackpot Poker
  • Aces & Eights
  • Split Way Royal
  • Double Joker Poker
  • Bonus Deuces
  • 10’s or Better
  • Five Draw Poker
  • Bonus Deluxe

This is a solid selection of video poker machines from Betsoft. There’s a good variety here, plus you have multi-hand variations that you can also play.

The graphics are pretty good. In fact, they’re some of the best that you’ll find for video poker machines (although the bar is set pretty low).

The games worked well for us when we tested them. We didn’t experience any bugs or lags. The machines worked as they’re supposed to.

As for stakes, it’ll depend on the machine. We found games that let us play in denominations as low as $0.02 to as much as $5. The largest bet you can make (that we found) is $25 per round. This is far from the highest you can spend playing video poker, which might turn some people off. We think it’ll work for many of our readers, though.

Our only two issues are the same as the table games above. We didn’t find a free money/practice option, and the window the games open in is fixed.

If Tiger Gaming fixed these issues, there’d be very little, if anything, we could find to complain about. They’ve done a solid job with their video poker section.

Slots

This is one of our favorite sections on the website. We’re big fans of Betsoft’s slot machines, specifically their 3D machines.

The following are some of the machines you can look forward to playing if you choose to join Tiger Gaming.

  • Vegas
  • Gladiator
  • After Night Falls
  • At the Copa
  • Greedy Goblins
  • Gypsy Rose
  • A Night in Paris
  • Good Girl Bad Girl
  • Heist
  • Lost
  • Madder Scientist
  • Safari Sam
  • The Curious Machine
  • Rook’s Revenge
  • The True Sheriff
  • True Illusions
  • Under the Sea
  • Treasure Room
  • Mad Scientist
  • Genie’s Fortune
  • Enchanted
  • Barbary Coast
  • Once Upon a Time
  • RockStar
  • House of Fun
  • Gold Diggers
  • 2 Million BC
  • Arrival
  • Ned and his Friends
  • Mamma Mia!
  • Ghouls Gold
  • Out of This World
  • The Bees!
  • Reel Outlaws
  • Chase the Cheese
  • Invaders
  • The Ghouls
  • Wizard’s Castle
  • Ogre Empire
  • And more!

They have a smaller selection of slot machines than you’ll find at many online casinos. We counted just a little over 100 machines. But the machines they do have are tons of fun to play.

And we should know. We’ve spent a fair amount of time on Betsoft’s website reading about and playing their different slot machines.

What makes their machines unique (other than most of them being 3D) is that they have small intros that tell you what the machine is about. There’s also a lot of animation that happens while you play. This could be players yawning, bouncing around, looking at the reels, or otherwise interacting with the game.

Some of our favorite machines include Under the Bed, Madder Scientist, Frankenslot’s Monster, and RockStar.

We’ve never had any issues playing their games, and obviously, their graphics are spot on. The slots here are only hindered by the fixed window they open in.

Slot players won’t have any issues finding a machine they enjoy playing. Their slots include a large variety of features that include bonus rounds, wilds, scatters, multipliers, progressive jackpots, and more. The stakes will cater to lower- and medium-stakes players.

Ultimately, if there’s any reason to join Tiger Gaming for their casino, it’s their slot section. We recommend you check it out.

Live Dealer Games

Thanks to Visionary iGaming (VIG), Tiger Gaming also offers a live dealer casino. These are the games we found during our review.

  • Blackjack (Early Payout)
  • Blackjack (Exclusive)
  • Blackjack
  • European Roulette
  • American Roulette
  • Baccarat
  • Super6

This is an okay selection, although UK and European players can find larger selections by choosing casinos that run NetEnt and Evolution Gaming live dealer games.

That said, we were surprised at what we found – in a good way. It looks like there are a few options here not available at other casinos running VIG software.

For example, their blackjack games offered the option to bet behind active players. We’ve not seen that option available at the other casinos running VIG that we reviewed previously.

They also offer much higher table limits than we’ve seen at other casinos. For example, you can play for $5 to $5,000 per hand at their blackjack tables. Their roulette tables accept stakes ranging from $1 to $5,000, and you can play for $5 to $5,000 on their baccarat tables.

This is still smaller limits than you can play for at casinos using NetEnt or Evolution Gaming software. It should be more than enough for most players who’re reading this, though.

One thing we’ve never been a fan of is VIG’s live streams. Tiger Gaming is no exception. The quality can be much better. The stream was grainy, and we did experience lagging. They could actually be competitive with other live dealer software providers if they were to fix this.

That’s the extent of our complaints, though. Tiger Gaming has done a solid job otherwise.

Poker

Tiger Gaming has been offering online poker for a long time. With this much experience under their belt, we sure hope that they got their ducks in a row.

The point of this section is to see if that’s the case and highlight any areas where they don’t. Let’s get started.

Important!
You can access Tiger Gaming’s poker room via download or using your browser. For this review, we used their browser poker room.

Traffic Levels

The first thing we look at when we review ANY poker site is their traffic levels. This is important because, without traffic, you won’t find any games running.

Tiger Gaming is doing okay in this area. They’re currently on the Chico Poker Network. This is a little odd to us since there are sites on this network that accept US players, and Tiger Gaming doesn’t. While odd, the good news is that they do have quite a bit of traffic.

When we were there, Tiger Gaming had more than 1,700 players spread across 117 tables and 128 tournaments.

Granted, some of this will be free/play money players. That said, there were far less play money players on the site during our review than we expected. This means that the traffic levels we saw were primarily real money players. That’s awesome news.

This still isn’t a place for full-time grinders. There simply isn’t enough traffic.

But if you’re someone looking for some part-time action or if you’re a weekend warrior, we’re optimistic that you’ll find enough action here to keep you happy.

Cash Games

Your cash game options will include Texas Hold’em and Omaha. There are a couple different types to choose from. Those include pot-limit, no-limit, and fixed-limit games.

The variants you can play include the following: bad beat jackpot tables, 6-max, 9-handed, boost, heads-up, straddle, caps, antes, run it twice, and regular games. There’s a filter that you can use to quickly find the games you want to play.

The stakes will vary depending on the game you want to play. You can play no-limit Hold’em as high as $10/$20. There were tons of games running from $0.50/$1 up to $10/$20.

The pot-limit Omaha games can be played at stakes as high as $5/$10 and fixed-limit as high as $15/$30. There weren’t nearly as many Omaha games running, although we did find some pot-limit action running as high as $2/$5 and $5/$10.

Micro stakes players will find plenty of action here, too. You can play for limits as low as $0.05/$0.10 to $0.25/$0.50, and there were games running at every level in between.

Overall, we were pleased with what we saw here. They had enough traffic to keep more than a couple dozen games running.

Tournaments

Tiger Gaming doesn’t slack when it comes to tournaments, either. We found several tournaments that were in progress or open for entry during our review.

The first thing we checked out here are the stakes you can play for. We found tournaments where you can play for free (freerolls) to tournaments with buy-ins as high as $109.

Most of their daily tournaments will have smaller buy-ins ($33 or under). We found several tourneys that looked great here, including a $15,000 GTD, $8,000 GTD, $5,000 GTD, and plenty of sub-$2,000 GTD tourneys.

They run far too many tournaments to list here, but here are some of the ones that stood out the most to us during our review.

  • Sunday Majors – They offer a couple of events, including their Sunday Warm-Up, Sunday Main Event, and Sunday Second Chance. The guarantees vary for each event, but we saw guarantees as high as $20,000 to $60,000.
  • Daily Dozen – Tiger Gaming doesn’t make it clear what the “daily dozen” stands for. However, when we counted the number of tournaments they had running the day we reviewed them, it became clear. They run 12 guaranteed tournaments every day. They start on the hour, every hour, starting at 14:00 (2 pm).

The ones we saw varied as far as what you buy in for and what the guarantee is. The one common denominator between each one is that they offered re-entries, re-buys, and/or add-ons.

  • Bare Knuckle Bounties – These are bounty tournaments where you’ll receive anywhere from $2-$11 every time you knock a player out of the tournament. These are guaranteed tournaments, too, where you’ll play for a minimum of $500-$2,000 per tournament.
  • Operation Omaha – These tourneys stuck out to us because they’re Omaha tournaments instead of Hold’em. It looks like they run daily starting at 18:00 (5 pm). The games offered include PLO, PLO8, and NLO8, and the guarantees range from $100 to $1,500.

Those are the tourneys that caught our attention. However, there are many more where those came from. We encourage you to check them out if you’re into MTT tournaments.

SNG Tournaments

If several-hour multi-tournaments aren’t your thing, that’s okay because you’ll have plenty of sit ‘n go (SNG) tournaments to choose from.

During our review, we found both Hold’em and Omaha SNGs in heads-up, 4- and 6-max, and 9- and 10-handed formats. The variations you’ll find here include re-buys, satellites, knockouts/bounties, and freerolls. The speeds you can play include regular, turbo, and hyper.

The buy-ins for their SNGs start at $1.05 and peak at $215. We saw action everywhere in between, although there wasn’t a specific level that stood out as the busiest.

What we liked most is the variety of games running. We saw regular heads-up tables, turbo heads-up tables, double or nothings, satellites, 6-max turbos, and more.

If you’re an SNG player or are just looking for a decent bankroll builder, Tiger Gaming might be just the place to join.

Software and Features

You’ll have a couple of options if you want to play at Tiger Gaming. You can download their software (for Windows or Mac) or play from your browser.

We decided to play a few hands from our browser.

The first thing that stood out to us is how good their tables looked. They reminded us of PokerStars software, who definitely have set the bar for software aesthetics.

We felt like no stone was left unturned here at Tiger Gaming. Everything from the table to the cards to the labels looked like they had a quality designer work on them.

The games worked well, too, which surprised us considering some of the issues we experienced in their casino.

Here are some of the features/options you’ll have when you play here.

  • Choose where you sit
  • Create notes on other players
  • Review the last hand played
  • Auto muck your hands
  • Show your hand
  • Auto activate window when it’s your turn
  • Chat with your opponents
  • Change the card fronts/backs
  • Change the color of the table and background (carpet)
  • Auto re-buy in when you drop below a certain level
  • Adjust the animation (important if you’re playing on slower internet speed)
  • Tile or cascade your tables

These are pretty standard options. There’s nothing particularly fancy or exciting about them. However, the software here is so well-done that even the basics look good.

And when someone can do the basics well, we think that’s worth pointing out.

Poker Summary

We’re impressed with Tiger Gaming’s poker room. There are several things we liked about them.

  • They have plenty of cash games running at all levels
  • They have action for both Hold’em and Omaha players
  • They have many MTT tournaments, including guarantees as high as $60,000
  • Their software not only looks great but works as it’s supposed to

If we had to complain about anything, it’d be their traffic levels, which are pretty low when you compare them to other sites that cater to players outside the US.

That said, it’s hardly a complaint since this doesn’t have to be a room for grinders. In fact, we’d say that it isn’t. If you’re a serious player, there are a few other choices out there for you. You can’t say the same for recreational players.

With that in mind, if you’re someone who wants to play for fun but still get many of the same perks that players at bigger rooms get – guaranteed tourneys, nice software, and plenty of action – then you owe it to yourself to check out Tiger Gaming.

The Sportsbook

Tiger Gaming also runs a sportsbook. Here are the different sports they offered action on during our review.

  • Aussie Rules
  • Auto Racing
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Darts
  • Football
  • Futsal
  • Golf
  • Handball
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Martial Arts
  • Olympics
  • Pool
  • Snooker
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Tennis

There are a couple of things that stuck out to us about the list of sports they cover.

First of all, their A-Z list sucks. They have a popular picks section where you’ll find their most popular sports – football, basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. Then they have their list of sports in order from A-Z. You’d think they’d cover everything here, but they don’t. They omit the games already listed above.

We point this out because if you scroll down to that list first, you might think that there are some sports that they don’t offer action on when that’s not the case.

The other thing we noticed is that they dim the sports that they don’t currently offer any action for. The options are harder to read, and they’re not clickable. This is a pretty neat way to see what you can bet on. We wish all sportsbooks did this.

Another thing we noticed is all their special or prop bets. You’ll find these in the sidebar, too. They offer props and futures for boxing, CFL, entertainment, darts, golf, MLB, motorsports, politics, wrestling, soccer, and more.

The politics props and futures was/is an interesting section. One interesting prop bet we found was whether the current president would be impeached, leave via impeachment, or if he’d resign during his first term.

The politics futures were interesting, too. Here, you could bet on who you think will win the 2020 US presidential election. Some options made sense, while others – like Joe Rogan, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Will Smith – did not. But you could bet on them all.

Even cooler was the fact that Tiger Gaming was willing to take requests for who you think might win the 2020 presidential election and offer action on it.

Live Betting

Tiger Gaming offers live betting. During our review, they offered live betting action for football, basketball, and hockey.

Here are some of the outcomes you could bet on.

  • Next point
  • Total (per quarter)
  • Moneyline
  • Sides
  • Point spread
  • Team to score a 110th point (basketball)
  • If the game will go into overtime
  • Total

Unfortunately, we didn’t spot a live stream, so you’ll need to go elsewhere if that’s a deal breaker.

However, they did have a couple of helpful options such as a multi-view screen where you can see all the live action going on that day. They also have a calendar that you can use to plan future bets. The calendar lists matches one week out in advance.

Sportsbook Summary

Tiger Gaming’s sportsbook is a middle-of-the-road product for us. There’s nothing that stood out as special. Nothing stood out as negative, either.

They cover the basics. You can bet on the most popular sports, many of them live. You can choose to bet in American, fractional, or decimal odds.

Their layout is simple to read, too. We thought it was easy to read each market and the odds for each one, and it was even easier to make our bets. There was nothing difficult about it.

We think there’s some room to improve, though. It’d be nice to see an esports section. Their rules page had a section outlining some rules for it, yet we didn’t see it as an option.

It’d also be nice to have some special options such as early cash-outs or live streaming.

Overall, though, if you want to bet on the sports you saw above, there’s no reason we can think of not to do it here.

Banking Options

Tiger Gaming has a large variety of banking options for you to choose from. This applies to both deposits and withdrawals.

It’s going to depend a little on where you’re playing from, though. When we reviewed them, we only had a couple of options – credit cards, cryptocurrencies, EcoPayz, Interac, and QBDirect.

However, if you look at their main payment methods page, you’ll notice that they accept several banking methods. It’s going to be hard to know what’s available to you until you create an account and log in.

We do recommend you avoid using your credit card, though, assuming the limits and fees are anything like what we saw. The max we were able to deposit was $50, and the fee was 7.5%. They used these limits and fees to encourage us to use crypto instead.

And if you want the highest deposit and withdrawal limits, not to mention the fastest transaction times with no fees, crypto is definitely the way to go.

Speaking of no fees, you will receive a $50 discount every 30 days on your cash-outs. This is nice of them to do, as not every gambling site offers discounted or free cash-outs.

All cash-outs are processed Monday through Friday during normal business hours. It’s sort of disappointing that they don’t process withdrawals over the weekend, but it’s a minor issue in the grand scheme of things.

Transaction times will vary depending on the option you use. It can range anywhere from instantly to 30 minutes to a couple of weeks. It’s all normal, though.

Other than their credit card option, their banking is straightforward. There are plenty of options to choose from, and many of them have reasonable limits and fees.

The following sections will show you the options that you can use, as well as the limits and fees for each one.

Bonus Promotions

Tiger Gaming offers a ton of promotions. Unfortunately, they didn’t do a very good job of organizing their offers into something we like to call categories.

We’re not going to do that to you. What you’ll find below are Tiger Gaming’s top evergreen promotions for each of the types of gambling they offer on their site.

We’ll start each section off with their welcome bonuses. Then we’ll cover the offers they run for existing customers and everyone else.

Casino Promotions

The following are the offers that you can claim in the casino.

  • Welcome Bonus – You’ll receive a 100% match bonus on your first three deposits at Tiger Gaming. This offer applies to deposits of $25 to $1,000.

This is a generous offer because you can receive up to $3,000 in bonus money. Not only that, but since you can do it in three deposits, it helps players take full advantage if they happen to be on a budget.

The playthrough on this offer is 40x on the bonus. There are several table games and mobile casino games that will not apply to the rollover. You’ll want to read the terms to know exactly what those are.

Fulfill this offer, though, and it sounds like you’ll be able to cash out your deposit, winnings, and bonus money.

  • Live Dealer Leaderboard – You’ll earn one leaderboard point for every $10 you spend in the live dealer casino. At the end of the week, players will be paid out from the blackjack and roulette leaderboards based on their points position.

Only the top three spots pay – $500 for 1st-3rd for roulette finishers, and $500, $400, and $300 for the top three blackjack finishers.

  • $50,000 Iron Man – Every month, Tiger Gaming hosts their $50,000 Casino Iron Man promotion. You’ll receive a ticket for every $1,000 you turn over per day for five days in a row. This ticket is placed into a drawing where you can receive the top prize of $10,000 or bonuses for select casino games.
  • Diamond Super 7’s – Play their new Diamond Super 7’s side bet in their live dealer casino. If you hit three 7s of diamonds in a single hand, you’ll win the progressive jackpot. There are also smaller prizes ($100 and $1,000) if you happen to hit three red 7s or three 7s of any color.
  • Happy Hour Freeroll – This is a tournament that plays every Monday at 5 pm ET. There’s a $3,000 prize pool that will be paid out to the top 50 finishers. The minimum payout is $50, and the first-place finisher will receive a whopping $250.
  • $25,000 Slots Scramble – Play your favorite slots and get as many spins in as you can by the end of the month. The top 100 scorers will be eligible to receive a piece of the $25k prize pool. Prizes range from $200 to $500 depending on where you finish up.
  • $25,000 Table Dash – This is similar to the Slots Scramble above, except that it’s for table game players. Play as many hands as possible, and the players who wager the most will win up to $500 in bonus money. The offer’s open to mobile and live dealer players, too.
  • $5,000 Weekend Warriors – Play in their live dealer casino over the weekend (Saturday to Monday). The top five players who play the most hands or spins will receive $1,000 in live casino chips (each).
  • 10% Casino Rebate – Play any casino game from Monday to Sunday. If you end the week down, Tiger Gaming will give you 10% of your losses back to you. You can collect up to $250 in rebates every week. This offer also applies to mobile and live dealer players.
  • Free Chip Madness – Play certain table games anytime Monday through Thursday, and you’ll receive a free $25 for every 40th $25 (or higher) bet that you make. You can receive up to $1,250 every week.

Poker Promotions

The following are Tiger Gaming’s promotions for poker players.

  • Welcome Bonus – Deposit $50 or more, and you’ll receive a 100% match bonus worth up to $1,000.

Once you make your deposit, you’ll need to email Tiger Gaming to activate the offer. From there, you’ll receive $10 of your bonus for every 5,000 comp points you earn.

You’ll continue at this rate until you’ve released all your bonus money or until 30 days are up. Once you hit the 30-day mark, the rest of the bonus money will be forfeited.

We’re not big fans of this offer because it looks like it’ll be tough to clear for most players. You’ll receive one comp point for every $0.01 you pay in rake. This comes out to 100 comp points for every $1 you pay in rake.

If you play tournaments with at least $1 in rake, you’ll need to play 50 games for every $10 of your bonus. Part-time players can probably handle this on a daily basis. Pros might be able to do 100+ games per day assuming they add SNGs to the mix.

But even at 100 games per day, you’ll only clear 2/3 of the bonus in a 30-day span. When you factor in that they’re on the Chico Poker Network, which is 14th in overall traffic, this bonus looks a little too tough for our liking.

  • First Depositors Freeroll – When you make your first deposit, you’ll receive a ticket to their monthly $10,000 freeroll. This is held on the second Sunday of every month.
  • Bad Beat Jackpot – Play at their special bad beat tables (they have a star next to the table name). If your hand is beaten by a four of a kind of 8s or better, you’ll receive a piece of the bad beat jackpot. Here’s how the prize pool is distributed.
  • 5% of pot to player with the bad beat
  • 5% of pot to the winner of the hand
  • 10% of pot split among other players at the table
  • 10% of pot split among players at other bad beat tables
  • 35% of pot seeded into the next BBJ
  • 15% of the jackpot will go towards administrative fees

It’s nice to see that they have this kind of promotion for poker players. However, we have a couple of problems with it.

For one thing, more than 1/3 of the jackpot is used to seed the next one. That could be a lot of money that the players involved in the hand should get. We think it’d be better if they took a flat amount out to reseed the next jackpot instead.

It’s also ridiculous that they charge 15% in “administrative fees.” They’re already receiving money in rake. We don’t understand why the poker room needs to collect even more money, especially this much.

  • Weekly Sit ‘N Go Leaderboard Challenge – Play SNG tournaments, and you’ll receive points. Aim to earn the most points throughout the week, and you’ll receive a piece of the leaderboard prize pool. The amount depends on the SNGs you play but will range from $100-$750 for 1st-5th

Sportsbook Promotions

The following are the evergreen offers available to sports bettors.

  • Welcome Bonus – Deposit $50 or more, and you’ll receive a 100% match bonus up to $1,000. This offer has a 14x playthrough, and you’ll need to complete it within 30 days.

The playthrough seems a little stiff compared to other sportsbooks. However, the big difference between Tiger Gaming and other sportsbooks is the size of the bonus. $1,000 bonuses are not common.

For that reason, we think the playthrough requirements are okay. It’s a tradeoff to receive so much money.

  • Risk Free Bet – Make a bet on an upcoming event, and if you lose the bet, ship them an email, and they’ll reimburse you. You’ll receive up to $25. It comes with a 6x playthrough that you’ll need to complete within 30 days.

Promotions Summary

Tiger Gaming has done an excellent job with their casino offers. There’s plenty to choose from here regardless of the type of games you like to play.

Their poker offers aren’t nearly as exciting for us. The welcome bonus is far too hard to clear as is, never mind the fact that we think it’s questionable that anyone can get enough volume in 30 days to clear a $1,000 bonus with their traffic levels.

The sportsbook offer is more in the middle. The playthrough is a little high, and you only have 30 days to complete it. However, the bonus is for $1,000, which is much higher than most sportsbooks’ welcome offers.

Tiger Gaming also has seasonal and limited-time offers. This means that it’ll make sense to check back with them periodically or make sure you’re getting their email newsletter.

Mobile Friendliness

Tiger Gaming has a mobile website for their sportsbook and casino.

The navigation is set up well. You’ll find your main options at the very top, which includes the sportsbook, live sportsbook, casino, live casino, classic casino, and horses.

Below that, you’ll find your secondary options. For the sportsbook, that will include the different sports you can bet on – basketball, soccer, boxing, cricket, and so on. For the casino, that will include a small drop-down menu that lists the sections on their casino – table games, slots, and live casino.

Their sportsbook was simple to use. You start off by choosing the sport you want to bet on, then the subcategory (pro or college, for example), and then the specific matches/events you want to bet on. Then you’ll see a list of all your options.

The casino was even easier. All you do is choose the type of game you want to play, and they’ll give you your options.

Sports bettors should be plenty happy here, as it looks like you have all the same options that desktop users have.

Casino players do not. You’ll only have a couple of table games, and then the rest are slot machines. We didn’t find a single video poker machine, which sucks. We hope this is something they have on their to-do list.

As for poker players, there’s an app that you can download. You can go to the mobile section (inside the poker section) on their website to find it. Their apps are compatible with Android devices OS 6 and higher or Apple devices that are iPad generation 3 or iPhone generation 5 and newer.

It looks like Tiger Gaming can make some improvements in this department, but at least they cover the bases.

Customer Support

Here are your options for how to get in touch with Tiger Gaming.

Envelope
LIVE CHAT

They supposedly take bets over the phone – according to their terms and conditions – but we didn’t find a phone number anywhere on their site. We’d definitely give them extra credit if they did.

And for some reason, the only live chat option we found (in the poker room) was not available to us.

So, we sent them an email to ask a couple of questions about who can or can’t play in their poker room and the network their poker room is on.

It took a couple of days to hear back from them, but they did get back to us with answers to our questions. Other than their response taking a little longer than we would’ve liked, we have no complaints about our experience with their customer service.

Conclusion – Tiger Gaming

Tiger Gaming is one solid gambling site.

It’s not often we come across a gambling site that offers strong gambling products across the board. That’s the case here, though. Tiger Gaming has a solid casino, sportsbook, and poker room.

There are definitely areas where they can improve. For example, we think they can improve their mobile casino, add esports to their sportsbook, and every poker room can use more traffic.

However, we think that they’re a solid gambling site as is. This site is specifically suited for recreational gamblers looking to make a few bets, play a blackjack hand or round of slots, and a few hands of Texas Hold’em or Omaha.

If that sounds like you, then we encourage you to check out Tiger Gaming today.
