As others have stated, an informal greeting meaning "Hello, how are you?". But the true spelling should be Trix (with a capital T) because of its origin, which no one seems to know: It was (still) an informal greeting, started in the early 20th century; but the entire phrase was "How are Trixie and the kids?"... basically asking how one's family was doing. Trixie was short for Beatrix, or Beatrice (a popular female name of the era) and came to be known as slang for "the wife". Over time the phrase was shortened to simply "How's Trix?"
"Hey Rob, long time no see. How's tricks?" ... "Doing well Joe, thanks." (Incorrectly spelled there on purpose to satisfy UD - use Trix)

Question one used to ask to hookers who "turn tricks." It means how are things? Or how is business? Now it is used in the UK for an alternative "how's things?" without any attachment to the old meaning.
Two friends passing:

"How's tricks?"

"Good thanks, you?"

"Busy as always"

question one usually asks hookers who "turn tricks." It means how are things? Or how is business? Usually this is said to loose women but the derogatory connotation is usually missed by most.

"How's tricks?"
