The OSAC verdict:


  • South African player focus
  • Able to play in ZAR
  • Great website design and usability
  • Great bonuses
  • RTG exclusivity lets Thunderbolt focus on a great experience for players


  • High wagering requirements on bonuses
  • No Live Dealer games
  • RTG exclusivity means not being able to play really excellent games from other games providers

Thunderbolt Casino is a solid casino that has a trusted and loved reputation amongst South African players for a reason: they do what they do very well. While the potentially limiting aspect of only offering RTG games could very well have impacted negatively, what it did do instead was allow Thunderbolt Casino to focus on creating a great experience, a well-developed platform and a user-friendly website with awesome support.

Well worth your time and your bankroll.
