Best For: Poker
Online gambling has been around for nearly three decades now, since the early days of the internet. However, those early casinos were not really casinos at all, more like entire websites dedicated specifically to a single game. Once actual casinos started to appear, these websites had to make a choice — upgrade to become real casinos, or eventually disappear.
Many that made the decision to evolve with the demand are some of the well respected now, while the other ones are not even remembered anymore. Now, when it comes to TigerGaming, it is one of the platforms that emerged a long, long time ago, primarily as a poker website. In fact, it was among the largest networks of this type for many years. But, over time, the industry made it difficult for companies like this to survive, and TigerGaming evolved with the times, which allowed it to still be around today.
Of course, TigerGaming of today is unrecognizable to those who may have known it back in the day, and only the two things are still the same — it still has a large focus on poker rooms, even though it now offers a lot of other content, and it kept its name. With that said, let’s see what the platform that originally launched in 1999 has to offer in 2022.
TigerGaming has introduced a lot to its platform in order to remain relevant over the years, which seemingly did work, given the fact that the platform survived to modern days, and it is still being visited and talked about by gamblers in places where it is allowed.
Its offering consists of 3 separate segments which include the following:
- Premium Poker Brand
- Top of the Line Sportsbook & Casino
- Generous VIP Program
- Australia & UK Prohibited
- Poor Selection of Video Poker & Keno
- No Esports
One of the changes that TigerGaming introduced over the years is sports betting, which is, of course, one of the most popular forms of gambling today. In fact, the introduction of sports betting was its first step towards becoming a full gaming site that it is today.
TigerGaming sportsbook has a very modern look and feel to it. It is easy to navigate, so anyone can do it regardless of their experience with similar platforms. Whether we are talking about finding games to bet on, reading the odds, or engaging in actual betting, it is all very simple and intuitive, making TigerGaming a good platform for experienced gamblers and novices alike.
The setup itself doesn’t differ too much from what most other sportsbooks sites are offering. In other words, TigerGaming was aiming to look familiar, easy to use, and reliable, without crazy experimentation that would risk the platform being rejected for being overly complicated and alien to what users of that time were already familiar with.
The sportsbook portion of the TigerGaming service has a sports menu on the left side of the screen, the odds in the middle, and the bet slip on the right. That is all it has, and that is really all it needs. The slip can be loaded very quickly, which means that it is easy to place the bet, and all you need is a couple of clicks.
The platform also offers all major sports and sports events, and it seems to have some very competitive lines for the sports that our team was looking into. All in all, this portion of the website has been done very well, and there is nothing worth criticizing or pointing out as flawed here.
Encouraged by the professional look and feel of the sportsbook, our research team moved on to the casino section of the website. As a poker website, TigerGaming introduced the casino section at a later date, so this too is a younger part of the platform, and likely not something that the platform intended to introduce back in the early days.
However, given the fact that TigerGaming no longer allows US players on the platform, it does come as a surprise that they did not try to secure additional software vendors. Instead, the big news regarding this portion of the website is that they now offer non-download versions of the games, which is a positive change. Before the change was made, having to download the game to play it was a requirement, and a point against the website, so we are glad to see that this is no longer the case.
In terms of software suppliers, TigerGaming works with two of them at the moment — Rival Gaming and Betsoft. Both are well-known and reputable vendors, but both are also offering their services to casinos that accept US players, which indicates that TigerGames doesn’t have the games that are against the US regulations, but rather other aspects.
Upon testing the games, they worked very well, with no issues, and the player experience was actually rather enjoyable. Of course, the majority of the available games were slots, which is something that both of these software providers are primarily known for. Rival, for example, has been working on developing a unique series of slots games over the years that have rather unique storylines and graphics.
As for Betsoft, its games are quite easy to spot thanks to the fact that they are all 3D series of games. The beautiful graphics are making the games extremely enjoyable to watch and play.
In the table games section of the casino, there are many, many great options including blackjack, roulette, American roulette, pai gow poker, craps, baccarat, and three-card poker. These live dealer games allow players to get the feeling of a real, traditional casino, or at least something close to that. This is something that is still new to a lot of people, but the fact that these types of games are available is actually quite positive and exciting.
Video poker is also among the offered games, which is not quite the same as regular poker, of course, since you are playing against the machine and not having to bluff your way through the game against other players. In the end, it is enough to say that there are multiple versions of the game, such as Jacks or Better, Joker Poker, Double Bonus Poker, Bonus Poker, and Two Ways Royal.
Originally, TigerGaming was a poker-only site, and while it was forced to evolve in order to stay relevant, it is nice to see that the platform did not forget its roots, and that poker is still a major part of it. The poker industry itself had to fight to remain relevant over the last decade or so, and so we expect that poker fans will be more than happy to see a full tournament schedule, and enjoy an entire array of cash games.
Poker websites are no longer packed with players 24/7, which might make poker enthusiasts sad to see. However, TigerGaming’s Poker section is still running well and is seeing plenty of traffic. There were multiple available cash games running at the time when our team researched the platform, plus small tournament fields, and more.
Now, there are several more things to note about the platform, such as banking. The platform features plenty of deposit and withdrawal options, including bank wire transfers, Mastercard, Visa, Skrill, ClickandBuy, Neteller, Entropay, iDebit, EcoPayz, UseMyBank, UseMyFunds, and Bitcoin.
The minimum deposit is $25, and, not surprisingly, there are all kinds of bonuses and promotions that the platform offers. The main bonus offers a 100% match offer on your first three deposits of up to $1,000 every time.
Next, it is worth noting that the platform is compatible with mobile devices as well as PC, which is great for those who enjoy betting on the go, regardless of whether you are into slot games, casino games, or the poker section of the website.
And, lastly, the platform also features customer service that is available 24/7 via email. However, if you have created an account and made a deposit, then you also gain access to live chat, so the platform’s agents will respond to you in real-time.
TigerGaming is an old platform that started as a poker website, but over the years, it had to evolve in order to stay relevant and avoid disappearing, which happened to too many other platforms. Fortunately, all aspects of its platform, the way it is right now, seem to be working flawlessly, and while we would love to see additional improvements, such as new partners, more games, and alike — TigerGaming right now functions without a hitch.
