Review of Golden Riviera Casino

Golden Riviera, over the years, has established strong bonds with its players not because they have a great payout rate but because they maintain outstanding customer assistance through their honest and professional casino personnel. Golden Riviera also gives out signup bonuses to new players and maintains other bonuses, an outstanding VIP program and friend referral schemes.

Riviera Online Gaming Advantage

Great customer service embodies Golden Riviera's commitment to creating a better gaming environment for online players. Golden Riviera online casino is considered to be one of the few casinos with a very responsive, courteous, and knowledgeable customer support service program. Customer assistance is in fact available to members in 14 countries. They have personnel who speak various languages and who can be reached via email, live chat and toll free numbers, 24/7.

The Riviera Gaming Experience

Golden Riviera Casino games run on the MicroGaming software. The casino offers some 200 64-bit, online games which can be downloaded with ease from the casino website or played directly without any need for download. The software is fast and this contributes greatly to the overall gaming satisfaction that can be had at the Golden Rivera online casino.

Among the games offered are 10 Card Games, 4 Table Games, 4 Live Games, 19 Video Slots, 12 Video Poker, 17 slots, and four special games. There are 19 Progressive games with big pots; jackpots in progressive games run from a middling-high $ 40,000 to as much as $680,000. New games are also added to the games roster regularly. As expected form MicroGaming software, the games' graphics and sounds are more than satisfactory.

Counting Your Riviera Winnings

Golden Riviera, apart from hosting a variety of games, has also established measures to ensure that its players are playing in a secure and fair gaming environment. eCOGRA acknowledges the casino's efforts to be fair to their members. Price Waterhouse Coopers has also evaluated the casino and this firm puts Grand Rieviera casino's average payout rate at 96.41%.

Assessing Trustworthiness

Since its establishment in 2000, Golden Riviera flourished to become one of the reputable casinos in the internet today. Apart from having a fast and responsive customer support, moreover, it is also very transparent in its dealings. In fact, they even retain the services of independent auditors who are tasked to audit the casino and publish monthly special reports about Grand Riviera's payout statistics.

The casino also has adequate security measures (state-of-the art encryption systems) to ensure that information transferred to and from the casino's servers is protected at all times.

Golden Riviera Casino accepts deposits and funds withdrawals made in UK Pounds, US Dollar and EU Euro. It accepts transactions made via Visa, MasterCard, NETeller, ECO, MoneyBookers, Click2Pay, Citadel, FirePay, InstaDebit, and PaySpark.

I am interested to play there because my friend has been playing there and succeeded with some cashout, I deposit $ 50 and get 100% bonus, I started with progressive jackpot and the result is quite good although there is not any indication about the jackpot, then I settled the turnover with the rest money is $ 190, and cashout, this is a nice casino, and it seems like I want to make a deposit and play again there, nice livechat, withdraw and verify the account is quite easy, very good, GL

A trustworthy Microgaming casino which has good support and frequent promotions (mostly by email). Made a couple of deposits here and cashed out multiple times by now, although overall im still in the minus section. The cashouts are fast and reliable for a MIcrogaming casino, and there were no issues up till now. Very nice support, had many great sessions there as slots didn’t seem too tight as I experienced in a few other Micorgaming casinos. I will keep depositing here again especially when as they continue to send me regular offers, including deposit match offers and occasionally no deposit free spins.

I've been playing at Golden Riviera casino for a while now. I have made few deposits there and so far no withdrawals. They often have very good promotions with decent wagering, live chat is always available and is always kind and helpful. They have very nice selection of games and I mostly play there on download option and never have any problems. I can't comment on withdrawals only because I mostly play there with bonuses and don't finish wager. This casino leaves me with good impressiong, they recently were giving out 20 free spins with no deposit required which seemed quite generous from a Microgaming powered casino. I would definitely recommend them to others.

Golden Riviera Casino,
They time i was searching for some free bonuses, riviera came on my path, offering 5 euro bonus.
but that was already quite a while ago, think they don't have it anymore.
well the bonus was soon lost, and couple weeks later i made my first deposit, without a welcome bonus, but chat agent was so friendly to add me free spins, i thought it was better since i didn't had to wager a bonus first, i wanted to play my spins after i win or lose my cash balance, well i won and requested a withdrawal, they where not so fast in the back-office. Documents checking and approving took them 4 days, without any update received i just asked every day on chat if my documents where oke, which i didn't like. and then process of withdrawal took another 3 days, for me not fast, i expected faster. there instant play version is really boring and empty. mobile casino could be bit refreshed too, cashier sometimes got stucked which was very weird since my phone was running latest updates, but at least it doesn't have any affect on the games. i only left with that 1 deposit there and forgot a bit about them, since there are bit better microgaming casino's with faster service, but golden riviera is definitely not bad.

PeDrone’s Golden Riviera Casino Review
Casino Software
Quite reputable and known Vegas Partner Lounge group introduces to us its Golden Riviera, one of the most nobles-sounding online casino names ever 🙂

Welcome bonus
Absolutely average bonus 100% match deposit. This is nothing to say about but on the google you could find maybe an exclsusive promoti Only luck is that I enjoyed my 200% with 25 FS also. It was an exclusive one, yes, but there are many of them among the internet, just lets find one. Anyway, be careful about the restrictions 🙂.

Deposits and withdrawals
I deposited twice, and wanted to withdraw after the second deposit, both of them were Skrill and the withdrawal also Skrill – took 2 days (could be faster, but was also quite fast this way 🙂 ) – counting also verification process!.

Live support makes impression of not qualified person enough and also acts unhelpful. That acts like a negative for me.

I played only this one game here, as my free spins were also only on it:
Sweet Harvest – 0.5 – 5.00 – paid on the second deposit (shortly after the 1st one).

I recommend not this casino – the reason is simple, I fear of it a little bit, and do not have certain reason – but there are many opportunities that could negatively surprise a customer (unskilled live chat, unclaimable bonus, etc.).

Golden riviera casino is not that place which can encourage you by the number of their slot games or something like this, because casino have only one software which it can offer to players, and it is microgaming. There can be very hot debates is this enough for players this days to have only one sofware,not sure what others think about it, but for me it is more than enough. Microgaming have awesome slots brands, and it is hard to not find some slots which every1 will like. As for customer support in this casino - there is nothing special or extra, but i must admit that live chat always on duty and very good, did not have any problems regarding this. Bonuses are quite good, can't complain because at least one 100% match deposit offer per week it is very good for microgaming casino. Withdrawals took quite a lot of time, from my experience it was 4 days both time, weekend was involves so probably it is a reason, but still not very fast. This is average online casino without any willing to become best online casino, but for sure there was some players who will like this place.

Golden riviera casino it is typical microgaming casino, and it is hard to find any really strong points for it, but from the other side it is also hard to find very weak points. Let me start from the pluses like always i do.
+ Software. Such big company like microgaming of course provide awesome download application, i am also tried at this casino instant play games, and can confirm that everything run very good and no any problems for me with this.
+ Customer support services. I tried email CS, and get reply within few hours, it is very good. But of course much more better just open live chat, and get help there. Looks like it is working 24/7, and for me it is was very friendly.
+ Bonuses and promotions. Casino usually send me great bonuses on my deposits, and sometimes not just usual bonus, but also some freespins on top of that. Few times i get email with invite to some tournaments with big prizes, but i am never play tournaments.
And one minus for this casino.
- Withdrawals. I get only few withdrawals from this casino, and it took about 3 days both times, to get paid on skrill.
Final mark.
Good online casino with good bonuses.

Another one with eCOGRA Microgaming + Quickfire software offering casino, that is not like some of the previous ones - this one offered various no deposit bonuses in the past (or better said free spins), and this fact sets this casino quite higher over another casino, that could be very comparable without this little sample of generosity 🙂

This casino, as I said above, vamped me mainly thanks to the free spins (which paid me something around 0.35$ 😂 ) and because I was quite satisfied with this casino after spinning them, decided to also deposit a bit. That was very long game, very long, I was oscillating around the 30-50$ of balance very, very long time, although I was varying the coin amounts, coin sizes and overall bet stakes and spins... until it came to the point, that I was bored and go sleeping, and let the game wait till next day, what was probably the fault - next day there was no oscillating, just a unidirectional journey to the ground 🙂 (This brings me a question, that appears in my mind sometimes, because mostly are the casinos paying much more in the night, like for example in the forenoon or early afternoon... any opinions?)
3.5/5, but this time really dont want to round, what a shame that there cannot be half-star on the end 🙂

Golden riviera it is again one more very good microgaming casino. Also i like with this all casinos from microgaming that most of it verify with ECOGRA that guarantee honest slots and games i am always happy to join casino if i see ecogra seal on the casino website. I play at this casino only 3 or 4 times because it is very rare send me bonus offers. Here i almost have good win one time i play immortal romance 1.2 bet and wild desire feature make 3 first reels of wilds and i was excited but still was very hope that it will continue and make at least one more but unfortunately on next second it is stop and i win not big only something about 120$. And i lost when try to clear bonus this money and also i never have payout from this casino.Reason why i play rare at this casino because it very rare send me good bonuses only probably 1 email per one single month and it is not very good and many other casinos send bonuses more often and i better play here. But casino looks very honest live chat also very nice and loyal to me and i think it is safe place because of ECOGRA seal.

Hi, i hope you will enjoy my review of golden riviera casino. This is microgaming casino in which i like to play from time to time, they sent out for me bonuses to email probably twice a week, also i get one CD on mail from them with 25$ no deposit, and this is was only one time i get real mail from casino, and of course i was happy. For my lifetime playing at this casino i did not have anything bad to say about golden riviera, everything was nice and cool, except that for me it is hard to win at this casino, just a lot of unluck for me there, and i am pretty sure that one day my luck will change and one big hit will cover all my loses at golden riviera casino. Till today i am down in about 250 usd ( yes i count such things, at least trying, it is always good to know how are you doing with casinos in single month, this helps not lost too much money). But again, i am sure the luck will turns good for me, and i will cover losses with some profit, would be nice.
Software: Microgaming, i am using download PC client.
Withdrawals: two - three days usually.
Support: Very good, at least not bad.

Hello! Golden riviera casino powered by famous around all gamblers microgaming, and i believe this is also good casino. I am also did not know which group of casinos owns golden riviera, but i played there probably 10 times, without any nice wins or cashout. Of course this is not made casino bad, just i had bad swing of luck , of course, because you never know when you hit big, or when you will had bad streak.
Anyway, golden riviera offers to new gamblers nice bonuses, including freeplay, but i will not describe such offer, because i never take freeplays. Good thing that they offer straight bonuses on first deposit, including 100% bonus on first deposit, 25% on second and 50% on third deposit. All my 10 or so deposits was lost in one slot, thunderstruck II 😂 I had few nice runs, but did not cashout and want to win more, because i am not very clever guy, probably...
Support: Chat few times, did not see anything bad in them.
Withdrawals: 10 or so deposist, zero withdrawal, unlucky casino for me.
Software: OK!
I give to golden riviera casino 3 stars. it can be better, bonuses can be more interesting , promotions also, and i am did not test their withdrawals, but i am pretty sure withdrawals slower than on 32 red, so i can not give this casino more than 3 stars, sorry.
