Rival Gaming is a relatively new software provider in the online casino industry. Therefore it is not surprising that it offers fewer games than the market leaders. However the complete spread of games is available at Rival Gaming online casinos. It is important that players become aware of the games offered by Rival Gaming for two reasons. The first reason is that it will help them to decide whether or not to play at Rival Gaming online casinos. Should they decide to wager at Rival casinos, understanding the games offered will help them to narrow down on the games that are suitable to their objectives and temperaments. This article provides an insight to the games offered by Rival Gaming.

The unique offering of Rival Gaming to the online casino industry is the i-slot. As such it is a slot game, but it has features that differentiate it from other slot games. Therefore Rival Gaming has created a separate games category for i-slots. Whereas the general slot game creates a theme, the i-slot goes one step further. It narrates a story around the theme. For example in Bank Heist the story revolves around a bank robbery. In Hole in Won the player plays a round of golf. The story moves forward when the bonus rounds are triggered. The outcome of the story depends on the player's performance in the bonus rounds. In Bank Heist the bank robbers may get caught or go free depending on how lucky the player is in the bonus rounds. The bonus rounds in Hole in Won are skill-based and the player actually plays a game of a virtual golf and the bonus credits received are commensurate with his golf scores.

The other slot games are similar to those offered by other software developers. These are categorized as 3-reel slots, video slots and progressives. The Rival Gaming 3-reel slots and video slots are on par with the industry. In fact the latest of them offer a feature called full screen animations, which is unique. When the symbols align in winning combinations the animations are not restricted to the symbol area but appeared across the full screen. The latest Rival Gaming video slot, Wacky Wedding, has excellent full screen animations. As far as progressive slots go, Rival Gaming is behind its competition both in the number of progressive slots and also in the payouts they offer.

Rival Gaming covers the entire the spread of table games, but it does not offer variants of each type of game. There are only two blackjack variants, single hand and multi-hand, and only two roulette variants, European and American. The rest of the table games like baccarat, craps and Caribbean stud poker do not have any variants. The table games have the features that are commonly offered by the most of the online gaming software providers. However some of the advanced features like auto play and auto strategy in blackjack games are not available.

The more popular variants of video poker are offered at Rival Gaming online casinos. Rival Gaming does not offer separate games for single hand and for the different multi-hand variants. It allows players to choose the number of hands from within the game. This is very convenient for players who like to toggle between single hand and multi-hand formats. Auto hold feature in which winning combinations are marked automatically and the double or quits option can be enabled.

The specialty games section offers a number of scratch cards and two variants of keno. However the most interesting game in this section is Sudoku. Numbers from 1 to 9 randomly appear in a 3 x 3 matrix. Players receive payouts depending on the number of matching numbers. A jackpot payout is offered if all nine numbers are different and a super jackpot payout is offered if all the nine different numbers appear in order.

Their online casino games aren't too bad actually they have made them a lot better from when they first started out as an online casino software provider. I beleive that they'll continue to get better and better just as is the case with any software provider out there.

I was never a big fan of their casino games until I tried them. I guess that as that saying goes don't knock it until you try it really does apply to everything in our lives including that of our views on various online casinos and various online casino software in this particular case for me. I think that their software is really good that of Rival Gaming and beleive that all players who are fans of good quality slots games really need to check out and try the Rival Gaming powered slots that are available at their casinos.
