  • Generous Welcome Offer
    The sign up bonus may cover several initial deposits.

Our Take

Golden Riviera online was launched in the year 2000. It is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority. The brand belongs to the VPL group, which also owns Crazy Vegas. Both of them put the download software first while offering a smaller number of games for instant play. Vegas Partner Lounge made a unified system of accumulating loyalty points for its network and a shared support desk as well, which lead to a more convenient gaming experience for participants of the group.

The main theme of the reviewed website is the luxury of the vacation at the French Riviera with its top-class hotels, exquisite services, glittering casinos, and stylishly-dressed audience.

The main language version of the casino is English, but content is also adapted to several major European languages, and there is an even bigger language selection for games. Among the subdomains are French, German, Swedish, and Russian versions. Most of the visits are from South Africa, Australia, Germany, and Argentina.

Online design is somewhat old-fashioned in technical terms. It does not have responsive features, and its home page offers a standard set of information, which includes a sign up offer, pending progressive jackpot, list of latest winners, and shortcuts to the promotions, live chat, and entertainment.

Games are available either via download of software or via Flash player straight from the browser. Instant play offers only half of the entertainment. There is also the mobile adaptation for owners of portable devices.

To create an account, every new visitor should either do it online or after downloading and installing the software. The installment process is fast and simple, and most of it is automatic.

The registration form will require a password no less than three and no longer than twenty characters in length, as well as personal and contact information. Once all of this is submitted, everyone can enjoy the set of the games and bonuses.

Our Take

The bonus program includes welcome offers, free spins, daily bonuses, and a loyalty program. The sign up bonus is on the first three deposits. In addition, a certain amount of free spins, as well as 250 loyalty points are added to this package. Wagering requirements are 50xB within 14 days.

Also, all members of the Vegas Partner Lounge can count on a loyalty program. Wagering at Golden Riviera, or in any other location of the group, leads to accumulating points. Thus, every 10 USD played through earns 1 point. Accumulated points can be exchanged for bonuses, tournament tickets, and cash.

Our Take

The library is powered by a single software provider, which is Microgaming. The download version includes 600 games, while the amount of flash games is half the size with only 300 releases available online. Content is of all kinds, with a particularly large collection of 16 variations of video poker. The selection of table games is also big.

The game lobby found online is divided into the following categories:

  • Slots, where fans of this cohort will find, among others, the iconic adventures in the horrifying Jurassic Park, the modern TV hit Game of Thrones, and Microgaming’s legendary Immortal Romance.

  • Table games, including 3-Card Poker, Cyberstud Poker, baccarat, Hi Lo, and many other games.

  • Video poker, such as Aces and Eights, All American Poker, Deuces Wild, Tens or Better, Joker Poker, and more.

  • Online roulette, including Royale, as well as American and European variations.

  • Online Craps.

  • Online blackjack.

The download version is organized in a way that is typical for Microgaming-powered platforms, with the following categories: 5 Reels Slots, 3 Reels Slots, Video Pokers, Blackjack, Roulette, Table Games, Progressive, Live dealer, and Variety Games.

Finally, the mobile lobby offers the following categories: new games, slots, table games, progressives, and video poker.
