Contrary to what the name might suggest, there is nothing confrontational about Rivalo, a bookmaker that encourages healthy competition.
In order to cultivate this spirit and attitude, they offer better than average odds as well as more markets than the standard bookmaker.
Licensed in Curaçao and serving customers from both Europe and North America, they tap into the immense potential of two lucrative markets.
Sports Betting Offers
Rivalo has the advantage of providing customers from United States with the games that they enjoy most and also ones they can watch in real-time. It is not the bookie’s merit for local TV stations broadcasting the games as they unfold, but it definitely helps their cause.
NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB matches has dozens of markets and these come in different flavors, ranging from the standard package to exotic bets that won’t be found elsewhere.
On the other side of the Atlantic, those who bet on football games have the live streaming feature to spice things up and also provide useful information.
While the odds are updated often, the advantage of watching the game in real-time makes it easier to pick a winner, which in the long run translates into bigger profits. Occasionally tennis tournaments are also streamed, but they are generally restricted to grand slam competitions and Master series.
Rivalo is far less creative when it comes to welcome packages and its bonus consists of only €100, while players can only hope to double their investment.
It is not as easy as it seems to clear the bonus, because betting the combined amount through five times at even odds is always a challenge.
Add to this the fact that you collect the free bet instead of a cash bonus and potential profits are also less than expected. There is no loyalty scheme in place, so you won’t accumulate comp points when placing real money wagers.
Deposits and withdrawals
Ukash, Skrill and Neteller top of the preference list at Rivalo for reasons that have to do with convenience and celerity. MasterCard, Visa and Paysafecard are second in line and they also have plenty of fans as no commission is charged and they work for both deposits and cash outs.
One still has to deposit at least €10 and withdraw €30 or more, but this is the industry standard so there is no reason to complain. Bank transfers are not excluded but they’ve lost ground due to the fact that they take longer.
Rivalo has a great looking website that is not crowded by advertising banners, so signing up is easy and the transition to a real money account seamless. When players encounter problems with deposits, cash outs and everything in between they can ask customer support for help.
Assistance is offered 24/7 over telephone, email and of course live chat but the bookmaker also has established a presence on social media this is not a solution for pressing matters but a convenient choice when time is on your side.
