Introduction to Rival Gaming Software
Rival Powered casinos first appeared online in April 2006. Since that time they have continued with steady growth, both in the number of casinos operating their software, and also the number of new unique games being released (approx 1 new per month).
The most popular thing with players is undoubtedly the variety and quality of the Pokies; from high-paying 3-reelers and entertaining 5-reel bonus slots to the unique i-Slots which take you to a number of different locations (new reel-strips) or to face different challenges.
They even have a few iSlots where the value of your prize is dependent on the level of your True Skill, including 2 where you play mini-golf! These are Hole in Won and The Back Nine.
In Cosmic Quest - Episode 2, your skill in flying a space rocket is rewarded, and in Rock On hand to eye to mouse click skill is needed playing the guitar!
Best things about Rival casinos:
Most Rival casinos will give you a totally free, no deposit, ZERO RISK, free-chip to try them out; If you complete the Wagering Requirements you will be able to withdraw real cash!
On many of the older slots the bonus features hit far more frequently than most other softwares (averaging 1 in every 50 – 60 spins) making the slots more exciting to play and re-triggers more common. But be aware that on some of the newer high-variance slots features can be quite rare!
On the slots where the features are easy to get, they naturally tend to pay only moderate wins or give only a small number of free-spins (e.g. 5-10) - but big wins ARE still possible from time to time.
On quite a few of their pokies you can win 75 or more free-spins, up to 666! See below..
With Rival casinos, any bonuses available to you will be listed at the side of the cashier page.
Simply click on the bonus name to bring up all the specific terms connected to it. If you're happy with the terms, click "Claim Bonus". Free Chips will be credited instantly, match bonuses added the moment you make your deposit.
Rival casinos DO NOT show how much wagering you have left to do - you will just see a message saying "Completed" when you have finished it. We suggest you try to keep track of where you are, or contact the casino support to clarify the WR left.
One key thing to be aware of:
Rival casinos have the ability to set maximum bet levels on each of their games individually - usually for bonus play, but low limits can also apply with cash play: the highest varaince games could be limited to as little as $2 per spin. High-rollers can contact the casinos to ask for higher limits.
But unlike RTG, Rival pokies do not have any maximum win caps.
A little word of Warning about other Rival Gaming casinos:
The casinos listed on this site have been fully vetted and are 100% safe to play at, but unfortunately there are a number of rogue Rival Casino operators; Typically they offer HUGE bonuses with wagering requirements which are very difficult to meet, and if you do make it they will use any excuse you can think of to delay or even cancel your cash-out.
There are some other reputable Rival casinos and we will be adding them to this site in due course.
Most Rivals offer E-mail and Toll-Free telephone support as a minimum. Many the casinos we list also have Live Chat available from within the casino, or from their website.

Introduction to RTG (RealTime Gaming) Software
RTG is one of the oldest & most well established online casino softwares, having been first formed in 1998. Popular with players for it's ease of use and very fast game play - initially just with their table games, but now with their slots too where "Turbo Mode" allows faster than a spin per second!
They offer a huge selection of games (over 300) including all the normal Table Games and Video Poker. But what sets one software apart from another is thier pokies of course, and RTG have a huge range of various types - nearly all with Randon Jackpots which can be won on ANY spin at ANY bet size.
They typically add at least one brand new pokie EVERY MONTH - so you'll never run out of choice!
Bonus Coupon System:
RTG use a 'coupon' system, where you enter a code to claim their various bonus offers. A few of our special codes are given in the table above, other codes are listed on the casinos' websites or will be sent to you by e-mail.
When claiming any bonus, please make sure you read all the terms connected to it - these will be displayed in the Cashier Page where you redeem the coupons.
You can return to that page at any time to find out how much wagering you have left to do.
A few things to be aware of:
RTG casinos are not multi-currency and the vast majority offer play in $US only. You can still deposit and withdraw from these of course, but your AUD funds will be converted into $US for playing.
Since the start of 2017 a couple are now offering full AUD services! See table above.
All their Pokies have a maximum win term (viewable on the pay-tables); this is usually 40,000 or 50,000 x your LINE bet. e.g. if you were playing a 50 line slot the max win might be 1,000 x your total bet.
On one of their slots, Count Spectacular, a full screen of wilds SHOULD pay line bet x 250,000 - but this is capped to x50,000. So for this slot we recommend only playing 5 lines, then if you did get the full screen you would not lose out.
A little word of Warning about other RTG casinos:
The casinos listed on this site have been fully vetted and are 100% safe to play at, but undoubtedly the worst thing about RTG software is the huge number of rogue casino operators; Typically they offer HUGE bonuses with wagering requirements which are very difficult to meet, and if you do make it they will use any excuse you can think of to delay or even cancel your cash-out.
There are some other reputable RTG casinos and we will be adding them to this site in due course.
Most RTGs offer E-mail and Toll-Free telephone support as a minimum. Many the casinos we list also have Live Chat available from within the casino, or from their website.
Suggested Pokies to Try:
If you are new to RTG software, you won't know what ANY of their games are like. So here are a few of my favorites which hopefully you will like too...
Aztec's Treasure, Fruit Frenzy, Ghost Ship, Hairway to Heaven, Lock Ness Loot, Paydirt, Rain Dance, Triple Twister, Panda Magic, Sweet 16.
