Want a New Rival Casino On Mobile? We’ve Got One For You Right HereMarch 13th, 2015
Video Slots casino have just added Rival Gaming to their long list of casino software providers. But what kind of mobile casino games will you find and is it worth your while?
Rival Gaming is one of those casino software that you either know well, or very little to not at all.
It has many fans, and they’ve been around since 2006, so clearly they have a certain something that appeals to players.
The question is whether you’ll find that something that has made them so popular worldwide. Not to mention the types of mobile casino games that you’ll find in their portfolio.
We investigate the above and what this now means for Video Slots casino.
We should point out that Rival Gaming games are not licensed to play in the UK or the US.
Tell me more about Rival
They are… odd.
We won’t lie. We don’t sit very firmly in the ‘fan’ category. They have some unusual games in their categories, their famous ‘iSlots’ for one, and they’ve clearly been around long enough to know what they are doing.

But honestly? We’ve never spent long enough playing their slot games to make an opinion more accurate than ‘meh’.
So this time around, we’ve spent the time trying and testing their creations, all for your benefit.
One blackjack and two roulette table
They were actually the two very first mobile games they brought out, back in July 2014.
And the rest, as they say, is history. And by that we mean that they then concentrated solely on creating mobile video slots.
It’s the popular thing to do.
Of course, if they create a truly great Blackjack and mobile roulette table, then all would be forgiven, right?
Except these are, at best, very basic games.
Not that that is a bad thing on Android phones and iPhones. But when you play on iPads and Tablets, you certainly notice the lack of graphical ooomph that would bring these casino games to the next level.
You do get the European and American style of roulette though, which is nice.
And to be fair, these are not bad games. Just not awesome.
22 classic 3 reel slot machines
That’s probably more classic slot machines than all the other current mobile classic slots currently available to play.
It’s got to be said – the likes of NetEnt and Microgaming know where their bread is buttered. Generally speaking, slot players like their 5 reel video slots. Big features, big paylines, big wins!
Great Rival Classic mobile slots?
- Chicken Little
- Firestorm 7
- Beach Bums
Classic slots are often, if not forgotten, then pushed out as a token game. Like “We need a classic slot in our collection – Jeffrey, go find one in our portfolio somewhere will you? There’s a dear.”
Clearly Rival Gaming went the opposite way.
That said, some of these three reelers are copies of each other, with just a theme for change. So you probably have 5 or 6 truly unique classic games here.
Still. They won’t be the first to give you tons of different themes and machines to try your luck on.
14 video slots with 5 reels
That’s still not a bad selection. Especially when you consider that they had to release all these mobile games between July 2014 and now.
That’s an average of 4 a month, not to mention the brand new games they release every month.
So yes, they are very much pushing mobile front and centre. And unlike the classic slots, most of these 14 slots are pretty much unique, offering something a little bit different.
One thing that’s obviously missing though is their famous iSlots – the games that made them famous in the first place.
That said, they do have most of their latest releases also on mobile, so you’re obviously not just getting their back catalogue of the greatest hits. In fact, you’re not getting the greatest hits at all, just the ones they’ve picked out of a hat. Apparently.
Which slot games would we recommend?
We have to fully put our hands in the air (like we just don’t care) and admit that as we are not long term fans, we may not be the best opinion to follow.
That said, we’re still going to give you our opinion, because damn it if spending 2 hours playing their slot machines won’t be wasted.
Plus, whilst we found that they were extra-ordinary fond of 50 paylines and below average graphics, they did do one thing right with many of the games: they provided some decent wins.
The man and women on this reel might be slightly scary in that “we’ve been brainwashed to smile like this” kind of way, but the rest of this video slot has an old fashion vegas look about it that’s kind of appealing.
- 50 paylines, 5 reels
- Wilds & scatters
- Up to 60 free spins with 11x multiplier
The free spins are what you’re looking to catch, which isn’t easy, but getting 10 with 3 scatters happens every 100 to 200 spins.
What you’re really looking for is to catch at least 4 scatters and get 20 free spins, or the jackpot ding of 5 scatters and 60 free spins.
Reason being, during the free spin games the wild comes with an 11x multiplier on any win. And you’ll need at least 20 spins to make the most of that.
A classic slot, with 3 reels and 1 payline, yet don’t underestimate this firecraker.
It has some great wins, and more importantly, two scatter symbols. One that simply gives you cash, the other 7 or 21 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
A true gem; a mobile game that has all the simplicity of a classic, but with some of the big wins and multipliers we love in a 5 reel video slot.
Scary Rich 3
We have to admit that Scary Rich 3 isn’t as good as either Scary Rich, or Scary Rich 2. But that’s often the case with a sequel.
Play slots smarter
However, it’s the only one of the three that’s mobile, so as an alternative (or if you haven’t played on the original) it still has plenty to offer in it’s own right.
Namely, what it has to offer is the possibility of 666 free spins. Though mostly you’ll be happy to trigger 5 or 10 free spins with expanding wilds.
Ironically, considering the theme is about surviving a dangerous haunted mansion, Scary Rich 3 is the safest of the three options we’ve given you.
What are you waiting for? A Video Slots casino invitation?
Cause if you need one, they have a great one on offer.
- 11 free spins, no deposit needed, on Starburst
- 100% up to £$€200 on your first deposit
- Plus 10 free money for select countries
See? Very welcoming and just enough to get you trying some of their new slot games.
