My visit to Riva casino has been swell! Back when I was still a new player in 2007 they offered me $20 to start which at first did not go far. Once I made a deposit of $50 on Riva casino I immediately contacted Live chat to claim their welcome bonus of 100% up to $200. For you new players out there who would like to try out Riva casino then please register an account and send them an email to claim the $20 no deposit bonus found in their promotions page! If any of you new players who claim this bonus manage to dive into the pot of gold (winnings) then you have to make a deposit of at least $20 to claim your winnings. I'm still surprised that they would offer this as by now it should of changed but to my perspective it attracts players regardless.
What I like about Riva casino are their Playtech based game variety. As I was meeting their wagering requirements (WR) I went by playing it safe, betting low to test the water at $0.50 per spin. I realised that when you bet small amounts you get frequent feedback on slots as opposed to betting large. In other words, you have a better chance of triggering bonuses and winning on small to moderate bets than betting high and only winning with little to no bonus triggers. As I was over my $100 I managed to climb my balance to $124.80 playing on slots. I sometimes avoid high variance slots like Irish Luck during my gameplay because at often times even if they yield bigger wins as well as small and moderate wins, a slot like Irish Luck can turn dead cold as they do not give you the bonus as much as other slots. For those of you who don't know what High Variance slots mean is it basically slots that requires a much bigger balance to receive infrequent big wins and to sustain gameplay when playing on slots such as Irish Luck! For Low Variance slots, they are defined as low paying slots that pay much frequently but do not pay bigger wins as with High Variance slots. The good thing about low variance slots is to keep a player playing for a long period of time while keeping their bankrolls to either an even balance or a moderately higher bankroll. This is what I chose to do, play on low variance slots such as Golden Games, Azteca and Gladiator to meet both wagering requirements and to gradually move my balance upward! Once everything came to a delightful end (from wagering) I walked away with $210. I honestly wanted to play higher variance slots but I did not want to risk losing my money since I chose to deposit and gamble small!
My Final words: Riva casino is one of the best and you can try them out with their $20 no deposit offer!!!
