Rival Software and Games Overview
Founded in 2006, Rival Gaming is a leading online gambling software provider that has created over 150 games for over 40 online casinos around the globe.
Aside from an excellent collection of graphically rich casino games and many a bonus, the company also provides a comprehensive online gambling management system via their back-end, which takes care of problems such as affiliate management, reporting, and security.
If you love interactive casino games, then you'll definitely love their series of interactive slot machines known as iSlots. Another attractive thing to really love about Rival software is that its downloads are very fast compared to other online gambling software providers.
As mentioned above, Rival Gaming boasts over 150 games in its portfolio, including slot machines, video poker, table games, as well as specialty games. Some of the decent titles from the company include Scary Rich, Jolly's Roger Jackpot, Lost Secret of Atlantis, and Diamonds Down Under. There are four progressive jackpots and players tend to hit them fairly regularly.
Rival Gaming's main focus is slots, which are categorized as regular slot machines and iSlots. Furthermore, the slot machines are classified as video slots, 3-reel slots, and progressives. The slot machines are centered around a range of top themes and have great audio-visual features. The highlight of the slot machines is full screen animations, where animations happen on the entire screen as opposed to the symbols area.
One interesting feature that has made Rival quite popular is their series of slot machines called iSlots. In iSlots, the "i" means interactive and the trick in these slot machines is that they have episodic plots that unfold while you play them.
Of course, it's some sort of gimmick the developer uses to entice players to play for longer. It's certainly an innovative idea even if it's not executed that well. Some of the top iSlots include the series As the Reel Turns, and slots styled around daytime soap operas like A Switch in Time and Reel Crime.
Rival Gaming offers the full range of table games. In particular, video poker and table titles are developed a little bit better and have a good variety to them, giving players the opportunity to enjoy blackjack, craps, Pai Gow, Red Dog, roulette, and Ride'Em Poker.
Blackjack is available in single and multi-hand formats. The formats include both American and European roulette. The library also boasts a variety of online casino poker and video poker versions.
In addition to slot machines and table favorites, Rival also has a myriad of other casino games, including a wide range of video poker titles like Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, Jacks or Better and many others. The company has also developed many specialty casino games, including Keno, scratch cards, Bingo, and even Sudoku.
Rival Gaming offers some awesome progressive jackpots with at least three reels and a single payline format. While the jackpot prizes are smaller than offerings from other software developers that can be worth millions of bucks, Rival's progressive jackpots hand out winnings quite regularly. Examples of such jackpots include Mega Moolah and Strike Gold.
