I'd definitely recommend it for freerolls and small added guaranteed tournaments. The only cash game you'll find is a .01/.02 table going at most times, and if you're lucky you'll find a bigger table... there's just not many players.
I've also played in a couple SnG's and I find that play soft as well. As in the three I've played in I've won two and finished second in the other (all three 10 handed). The basic strategy of being tight in the beginning and aggressive in the money works to a T on Tropical.

If the board is Qh 10h 6d and you're holding AQ-diamonds... and you want to call 3 all-ins, in turn putting you all in.. by all means, go for it. I'll wait until I'm 100% confident I'm going in with the best hand/will ultimately have the best hand by the river.
[Different Tournament:] I pushed all in on a flop of A K 10, rainbow, with trip 10s and got called by 4 callers... 2 had Ace-rag, one had King-rag, and one had JJ.... JJ caught his trips on the river and I went from 3000 chips to 600. I catch TT again next hand and push. I'm called by "JJ" and another donk that survived the prior hand. Flop comes 8JQ and donk two pushes... "JJ" calls... what to do they show? Donk two shows A8 and "JJ" shows a pair of 5's. So I triple up and survive for a few more hands.... actually going out on a good play.
I'm not complaining at all as the play is very good there after the donks are gone... a tad soft, but solid. I'm just giving a couple examples.
