TuskCasino – can we say “giving it horns?”
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 stand 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 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.
Tusk offers a great range of games from a number of trusted providers but it’s in the Live Dealer arena where they truly shine. There are one or two South Africa-focused online and mobile casinos that make Live Dealer everything we could possibly have hoped for – and Tusk is ready to join their prestigious ranks.

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.
This is where TuskCasino really shines and where we get really excited: the casino games selection. Tusk is dedicated to the Live Dealer sector, and it shows – we haven’t seen this many Live Dealer games in ages, and some of them (looking at you 2-ball roulette) are definitely way out of the ordinary. Seriously, the Live dealer lobby is MASSIVE!
- Slots (over 4,000 slots games with a huge Megaways™ selection that makes us super-happy)
- Video poker
- Table games (200+ including all your favourites and some interesting new ones)
- Live Dealer (as mentioned earlier, 100s of Live Dealer tables and some really interesting, quirky and unique ones)
Tusk offers a fully responsive mobile experience compatible with most modern mobile devices and OSes.
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.
