One of the biggest and most comprehensive online casinos for South Africans – gets even bigger! With an online sports book added to its already impressive online slots, online poker, online table games, and online Live casino, TuskCasino is probably one of the biggest online gambling sites for South Africans looking for some gambling thrills.
A bull elephant among the bokkies
Are we as South African players getting absolutely inundated by new online casinos, or what? Thankfully, with the plethora of online gambling partners welcoming South Africans into their virtual games of chance saloons, we’re able to pick and choose to our heart’s content. Yes, some of the casinos are a little on the shady side, or offer very limited games, or have some not-so-exciting bonuses – but then we get the ones that really sand out!
And TuskCasino is one of the standouts.
Like the magnificent tusks on a fully grown bull elephant, Tusk is here and ready to be noticed. They are new to the international scene, and very new to the South African one, which we applaud. Having started out in this competitive industry, it takes a brave and wise operator to realise that South Africa is where all the attention is focused right now.
TuskCasino offers a great range of games from a number of trusted providers but it’s in the Live Casino arena where they truly shine. There are one or two South Africa-focused online and mobile casinos that make Live Casino everything we could possibly have hoped for – and TuskCasino is ready to join their prestigious ranks.
But TuskCasino actually goes a lot further, especially with their recent expansion. They now have over 7,000 online slots games, over 700 online table games, the massive Live Casino and, their latest offering, a properly impressive online sports book for South African sports betting fans that covers every major sport, tournament and event on the calendar.
A true giant of an online casino.

The TuskCasino online experience
The Online South Africa Casinos review team need to get something out the way before we go any further: TuskCasino is absolutely ENORMOUS! Seriously. Where most online casinos for South African players are similar to small boutique land-based casinos (or dodgy, smoky basement lairs filled with criminals and sleaze merchants if you don’t follow our reviews and choose online gambling partners who are fair and trusted!), TuskCasino is more like the mega entertainment centres filled with casino floors, shops, restaurants, kiddie arcades, movie theatres, and more.
And it can be intimidating.
With the sheer overwhelming number of online and mobile casino games in their portfolio, TuskCasino is already a behemoth. Add in the ridiculously huge Live Casino AND the comprehensive online sports book and some players may feel a little intimidated.
But don’t worry. TuskCasino have done an admirable job in designing their updated site to be quite easy to navigate. And they have even managed to add in some features that make TuskCasino rather educational as well.
To begin – registration is as easy as clicking the Join button on the top right of the landing page. Fill in all the usual required details like name, surname, ID, address, email, mobile number, and so on. Choose a username and password. Verify your email or mobile. And you’re ready to play.
Log in is, likewise, as simple as clicking the Log In button on the top right and entering your username and password. Be aware that, sometimes, your username is actually your email address or mobile number for some reason.
Now that you’re logged in to TuskCasino, the real fun starts.
As mentioned, it is huge. But finding your way around is quite simple, First: choose whether you want to play at the online casino or the online sports book. The menu bar right at the top of the page gives you the option of Casino, Sport, Promotions, and Tournaments. Click Casino for the online casino, Sports for the online sports book (or Promotions for the latest bonuses and promos, and Tournaments if you enjoy online casino tournaments).
The OSAC team will be focusing on the online and mobile casino, but we will mention the online sports book a bit later.
The online casino landing page is straightforward. Your profile and balance sit at the top right (where the Log In and Join buttons were). The top left has an expandable drop-down menu giving you access to a bunch of lobbies like Sport, Megaways, Live Casino, Tournaments, and more. TuskCasino does offer a few different options here compared to the usual online casinos that South African gamblers are used to: Fishing, Raffle, Bonus Buy, are examples.
The page is dominated by an animated banner showing the latest promos with the same tab options as the drop-down menu underneath it.
Below this is a list of all the (many) online casino game providers followed by a sample of the games on offer.
One thing that must be mentioned is the bottom of these pages. TuskCasino has populated a lot of their free space with text and FAQs. These are great for players wanting to get a little more info on the casino or on games. Then there are the weird SEO-like keywords that just seem to be a list of online casino and online gambling terms. However, click on these and TuskCasino gives you fantastic info, explainers, and guides to the online casino world.
It is really cool, but also makes the website feel very busy and confusing.
Players should focus on the drop-down menu on the top left of the screen when it comes to navigation. This is where you can get quick links to the important lobbies: online slots, online table games, and online Live Casino.
Online casino games at TuskCasino
When it comes to online casino games TuskCasino stomps the competition like an enraged elephant rampaging through a mielie field. There are literally 1,000s and 1,000s of options for South African online casino game fans. Already for your real money online gambling in our very own ZARs.
With over 9,000 online casino games players will need to either know what they are looking for – or spend some happy hours just experiencing everything that TuskCasino offers! Navigation is made easier with handy tabs and plenty of colourful thumbnails. Searching can be done using the search function by name, by list A – Z or Z – A, or by Provider.
There are also options for New, Popular, Jackpots, and even an entire Megaways lobby.
Over 7,000 online and mobile slots! That should satisfy any South African online slots fan. Add in the list of Providers (over 60 of the best studios from around the world – big names and up-and-coming indies).
Big names like Play’n GO, NetEnt, Playtech, Yggdrasil, Spinomenal, Booming Games, Wazdan, and even Microgaming (note that Microgaming slots are probably blocked for South African players) rub shoulders with some amazing new studios like Tom Horn, Iron Dog, and Rabcat.
Seriously, players need to visit to actually understand just how many online slots game there are.
Online table games
The online table games options are equally as good with multiple variations of casino favourites like online and video poker, online blackjack, online baccarat, online roulette, and more.
Online Live casino
There’s a little button on the page that reads “See all”. For the online Live Casino, it reads “See all 914”. That’s 914 different online Live Casino games! Insanity!
Now we are not sure if that 914 includes all the different tables. So online Live Casino Lightning Roulette could have say 10 tables. And this 914 number could include all the tables that are in different languages.
It’s still an incredibly number of options for getting a real-life casino experience streamed straight to your device.
All the big Live Casino studios are here: Evolution, Pragmatic, Ezugi, Vivo, Spade, and more to bring you not only casino classics like poker, blackjack, roulette, and baccarat but innovative games like Live Casino Game Shows, Fan Tan, Pok Deng, dragon tiger, sic bo, and so many others.
Online sports book
The newly launched TuskCasino online sports book just sets TuskCasino as an all-in-one entertainment and online gambling destination. South African online gamblers are seeing a lot more online sports books that offer a few online casino games (usually an online Live Casino but more online slots coming to market as well). Here we have an online casino that is also bring online sports betting to the players.
Be aware though, if you are not used to how an online sports book operates, it can be scary! So much of data and info and numbers and lists and and and.
However, if you know your way around a digital bookies, then TuskCasino has a destination for you! A world of international sports and events with great odds, thousands of markets, and even some unusual options like politics, entertainment, music and eSports like CS:GO, Dota 2, and more.
TuskCasino online casino bonuses, promotions, and free spins
TuskCasino offers all the usual bonuses with high bonus amounts but equally high wagering requirements.

TuskCasino Loyalty and VIP programmes
There is a great loyalty programme, but you really want to get into the VIP section: private Account Managers, unlimited bonuses, tons of rewards and really awesome, high-end prizes like holidays and watches and tech.
There is a fully responsive mobile casino option, but the size of TuskCasino means we (and it is a purely personal choice) prefer to hit the online casino for ease of use. Both the sports book and the online casino are accessible via mobile devices.
Online casino banking methods
One of the areas where TuskCasino needs to maybe up the ante a bit is their banking methods. While the most popular methods for South Africans are represented, the options are a little sparse.
The OSAC Verdict:
- SO MANY LIVE DEALER GAMES!
- Great selection of games developers
- Interesting new games
- Clean, easy-to-navigate design (clearly laid out with search functions and quick links on the header and side bars – quite crucial considering just how many games there are)
- So many games it can actually feel a little overwhelming (yes, we’re whining about too many games, we know)
- Limited banking options
- High wagering requirements
We never thought we’d be saying this but…there is just so much choice here! It feels a bit overwhelming scrolling through page after page of Live Dealer games and slots and table options. BUT, we will persevere!
TuskCasino is an excellent new addition to our local online and mobile casino choices and we’re looking forward to seeing how they go. We love Live Dealer and we absolutely adore Megaways™ so we are over the moon with the variety on offer. One of the other things we find amazing is having Yggdrasil as a games provider (one of the many but we are big fans of the studio).
With so few cons apart from the banking and so many pros, OSAC must recommend TuskCasino to all South African players.
