Rival Gaming

Perhaps it's fitting that a software provider that has only been around since 2006 would choose an inherently competitive name live Rival Gaming. Based in Cyprus, the company has made a splash in just a few years of operation with its i-Slot games, as well as a platform that can be used by online casinos to track data and run their operations more profitably. Rival's table games offerings are steadily making inroads as well. The company's stated philosophy is to make games that people love to play, and it seems to be doing a good job of that so far.

More About Rival Gaming Online Casinos:

Unlike some other software providers that license all of their games together as one complete package, Rival Gaming serves their customers a la carte style. That means you may find some of their games alongside games from other companies within the same online casino. Despite that fact, the company prides itself on having unique games that will stand out in a crowd.

The i-Slot games certainly qualify on that count. These games might look like regular multi-line slots at first glance, but they add a new level of interactive gameplay to the mix. The i-Slot games have a story that progresses as you play, making for a deeper experience than you'd find at similar machines. Some of them, like As The Reels Turn, Cosmic Quest and Reel Crime, have proven popular enough that they already have sequels that take the theme even farther. Rival Gaming also has a full line of more standard slots games plus video poker and table games like blackjack, baccarat and roulette. The selection of table games is not quite as broad as some of its competitors field, but it is growing over time.

Though there aren't too many online casinos that run the entire Rival Gaming suite of games, there are some benefits for those that do. All of Rival's games are built on Flash, meaning they can be accessed through download and no download play. This is a bit different than most software providers, who have to scale down their offerings for no download players to use in browser windows. The Rival Gaming software client has a reputation for downloading quickly, and it can also be used on either Macs or PCs running Windows.
