Golden Riviera is a name that we’ve been seeing for years — since at least 2000, when the original online casino launched. Staying just below the radar, Golden Riviera has built up an impressive reputation for customer satisfaction, ultimately becoming so irresistible that Vegas Partners simply had to bring them aboard. Now that the venerable casino has even more to offer, it’s time to take another look…

Gameplay

Playing casino games at Golden Riviera is a double-sided experience. There’s the familiar thrill of putting your money in the hands of Lady Luck (or, if you’re a blackjack or video poker player, Lady Mostly-Luck). But there’s also the positive opposite: the feeling of comfort and safety that is essential for real-money online players. Unlike most online casinos (or most places online, period) you can actually relax and enjoy yourself at Golden Riviera.

Software and Graphics

The website and software lobby are decent enough (if you like gold and blue, you’ll love it), but your eyes are in for a real treat with Golden Riviera’s games. Graphics are one of Microgaming’s strong points, as you’ll see when you load up any of the modern animation-heavy video slots. The attention to detail and authenticity is apparent even in the classic fruit machines and video poker games.

Game Variety

With Microgaming, you know you’ll always get a wide variety of great casino games. Golden Riviera offers everything from progressive slots (Mega Moolah alone is nearing the €4 million mark) to realistic craps, from the biggest selection of video poker games to a number of exotic games and variants to keep you from ever getting bored. And since Microgaming brings out new games every month, you’ve got your work cut out for you trying to catch up!

Bonuses

As with everything else, Golden Riviera has a good mix of the familiar and the innovative when it comes to promotions. They have the standard 100% Welcome Bonus (with a $/€125 maximum), but also the compelling $2500 Free Play Bonus. This unique promotion gives new players one hour to use $2500 in the casino — and keep the winnings (up to $200 over the original $2500).
That’s a perfect way to try out everything that Golden Riviera has to offer (well, not everything — you only have an hour, after all), a big step closer than most “free play” options ever get. Keep in mind that they will ask you to wager a little before you cash out.
In addition to these two Welcomes, you may also be interested in the High Roller Bonus (Golden Riviera will give you $500 when you deposit $1000).
And these are just the beginning of the bonuses available at Golden Riviera Casino. If we had more space, we’d tell you all about the great VIP program (usable at any Vegas Partner Casino), the monthly $10,000 drawing, the slots tournaments, the Casino Treasure Cruise…

Wagering Requirements

Most major online casinos these days are requiring a 30x playthrough, and Golden Riviera is no different in this respect. As always, slots are your quickest path to fulfilling the wagering requirements.

Payout Percentage

Golden Riviera scored a big point with us right away, by linking the eCOGRA symbol on the front page to their latest audit certificate. The numbers are admirably competitive with any major online casino: All Games, 95.66%; Slot Games just slightly lower and Poker and table Games a little bit higher. So you can expect Golden Riviera to be more giving than most online casinos…and to make brick-and-mortar casinos look especially stingy by comparison.

Customer Service

Golden Riviera has a number of support options, many of which are available anytime. To begin with, the FAQ is more extensive and useful than most. Separate email addresses are provided, one for general issues and another specifically for banking.
If you need instant feedback, you’re in even more luck. Both the online chat help and the telephone contacts are available 24/7; the latter has over a dozen toll-free numbers to serve players all over the world. In our experience, the responses were courteous, quick, and helpful — even when we surprised them with a particularly esoteric question about random number generators in multiple-deck blackjack.

Conclusion

Golden Riviera looks like a perfect place to spend your gambling hours. An almost unending list of great Microgaming games, plus all of the support and security that you’d expect from a 10-year-old casino backed by an industry giant. If you are a newcomer, or simply don’t have a Microgaming casino in your collection, we’d have a difficult time finding anybody better to recommend than Golden Riviera.
