Rival Gaming – or just Rival – first appeared on the online casino software development scene in the mid-2000s. In 2006, the company introduced its initial line of games released under the company's GiGse games platform.
The company was quickly recognized as an innovator because of its i-Slots™, which allowed a player to track an interactive story-line while playing a standard slots game.
After establishing a reputation for providing quality games, Rival took the next step by developing a legitimate software platform to supports its games and the games of 3rd party providers.
In 2014, the company took yet another major step by introducing a live chat function that allows players to interact in the casino games lobby. This is a feature that looks certain to make noise within the industry.
That in mind, Rival is a wholly owned subsidiary of Black Chip Ltd and maintains its gaming license with the Curaçao Gaming Authority.
While the GiGse games platform is credited for getting the ball rolling, it has been the proprietary Casino Controller™ software platform that has provided the company with much needed credibility.
This full-service platform provides a turnkey solution for online casino owners looking to customize both the front-end and back-office components. The back-office component comes with standard reporting and player tracking options. It also provides a customer service module, targeted marketing capabilities and a ClassAct™ system that allows casino owners to set up custom rules for games.
The software has been designed using AS3, Adobe Flash, Java Script and PHP, which gives the platform much of its flexibility. It is available in both download and instant-play mode with additional access provided in the mobile device space. That includes many of the popular operating systems, such as Windows Phone, Android and iOS.
The gaming results are determined by a random number generator (RNG) and site security is assured by the use of 128-bit SSL data encryption technology.
The action starts in a games lobby that offers live chat capabilities between players.
As for the games, Rival's portfolio includes over 160 games with many of them also designed for the mobile portfolio. Aside from the aforementioned i-Slots, the platform also offers a wide variety of video slots, video poker, scratch cards, keno and table games (roulette, craps, baccarat, Red Dog and blackjack).
The video slots come in 3-reel and 5-reel formats with various pay-lines and bonus features. Current titles include World of OZ, Panda Party, Swinging Sweethearts, Blazin’ Buffalo, Jolly Roger's Jackpot, Lion's Roar and Money Magic (progressive).
Rival is an iGaming developer that’s been around for over a decade. To date it has more than 50 casino clients and 200 games, some of which are compatible with mobiles and tablets through its mobile suite. Experience its V4 casino lobby at sites like Slots Million and Tropezia Palace.
