Rival Gaming Software Review
In comparison to the larger players in the casino software industry like Microgaming and Playtech, Rival Gaming got quite a late start when it opened its doors in 2006, almost a decade after the others. It is part of the Cyprus based Black Chip Ltd. Group and is licensed by the gaming authority of Curacao.
To date the company powers over 60 online casinos that include the following:
- Black Diamond Casino
- Da Vinci's Gold Casino
- Golden Cherry Casino
While the majority of the Rival Gaming powered casinos operate quite successfully, those that don't do not receive any assistance from the group and as far as what we've seen in the industry to date, the buck stops with the casino operator rather than the larger group. This is not always a good thing for players because should a casino run into issues, ultimately it's the players that lose out.
Rival casinos offer players a number of casino games on both the download and no download platform for PC and MAC. While the sound and graphics on some of the games does feel a bit dated when compared with industry leader, these games are still life like and highly entertaining. Rival is not always behind either; after all, they did pioneer the industry's first interactive slots (i-slots).
Their i-slots offering is definitely where this software provider excels as these slots captivate the player from start to finish with their unique use of animation to to develop a story which unfolds with every stage of the slot's game play.
When it comes to Progressive Jackpot offerings, because their network is smaller jackpot pools generally follow suit but they do seem to hit more often with multiple winners being very lucky on their popular machines Major Moolah and Strike Gold.
As can be expected, player security is key at Rival casinos and they employ the standard 128 bit SSL data encryption as well as the IdentiPrint security system to monitor all connections across their software, keeping your personal information secure.
While Rival Gaming is relatively new to the industry, they have not neglected to make a name for themselves amongst players and it seems that if they keep up their innovative work, they will only grow in popularity.
