Graphics and Sound
Rival have excelled in terms of graphics within their games. There is an interesting mix between gaming categories as players will find that in those such as interactive slots the images are 3D and are very bright and fun. With the addition of catchy sound effects, the games in particular are very exciting.
Within table games the graphics are more subdued. They are still exciting, however they are just more realistic than others and the subtle sound effects add to this aura.
Download Vs Instant
The downloaded software is very good for those looking for maximum playability as this version contains the most game variants. It also loads a lot quicker than the instant, both when initially opening and loading each game.
However, for those players who wish to play without the need for downloading can access the software via the web browser by selecting the instant casino version. There are fewer games but they are very good in terms of playability and also allow fun and real wagers to be placed.
Multiplayer and Tournaments
Unlike many other software providers, Rival is very unique as it allows multiplayer games in the instant software also. All software users can therefore play at public tables in games such as Roulette.
The tournaments too can be played instantly as many daily slots games are available.
