Characteristics of the Bookmaker - short
Rivalo.com operates in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese. The Portuguese version is for Brazil.
Rivalo is a betting website where every risk-taker can either bet on sports or enjoy gambling in the casino. This review will cover Rivalo’s features, interface and bonuses. If you don’t have an idea about this operator, now is the time to skim through our analysis and make a better-informed betting decision.
Rivalo was founded in Curacao in 2013 and is operated by Matchserv Solutions N.V., a company founded under the law of Curacao, licensed on 15/01/2018 in Curacao by Antillephone N.V. Rivalo is unique because of its bonuses which we will cover in more detail later. Rivalo is restricted in some countries like the United States of America and The United Kingdom but on the other hand, it has a lot of supported countries like Cyprus, Egypt and Sweden.
Design and Layout
The designer of the website did a really good job by providing an easy to use interface for the bettors. Moreover, they used blue and white colours which are easy on the eyes.
The front page of the website is where the all action is, on the upper part of the screen is where you have the different betting segments, whether it be Sports, Live betting, Casino, Live Casino and virtual sports. On the left side of the page, we have a wide variety of sports that you can choose to bet on whether it is basketball, football, volleyball, horse racing etc…The middle part is where you can see the odds of the sports, and on the right is where you can see your bet slip.
As for the platforms that are compatible with Rivalo are the desktop tablet and mobile, Rivalo doesn’t have a mobile app yet, but you can always use your mobile browser to place your bets.
Services and Live
On the Rivalo website you can enjoy betting on a lot of sports as well as winter sports like Alpine skiing and Sky jumping.
Like other gambling websites, Rivalo also has a Casino section where you can find different games for you to try your luck. Moreover, the website also has a Live Casino section, featuring Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat tables.
What sets Rivalo apart from most of its competitors is that it has a virtual sport betting section, something you don’t come across on many other betting websites. The feature includes football games, competitions, basketball games and more.
When it comes to Live betting mostly any sporting event that is happening live is already posted in the middle section of the website where you can easily see the in-game odds. The live betting section includes sports like Basketball, Football, Horse Racing, Volleyball etc…
Furthermore, like most websites, Rivalo also offers a cash-out feature where you can cash out your bet even if the game hasn’t yet finished or if you don’t want to wait for the next game’s outcome, but of course, the return will be less than the original payout.
Rivalo doesn’t offer live streaming services at the moment, but what it does offer is, in-game statistics and also past statistics on how the teams have performed in their previous matches, something most betting enthusiasts consider before placing a bet.
Freebies Bonuses and promotions
After Registering to the bookmaker Rivalo, you will be eligible for a bonus of up to $100 as a part of a 100% bonus of your initial deposit. The bonus offer is valid for the first deposit only and is also known as a welcome offer.
In order to be able to withdraw your bonus, you have to bet 6 times with odds over 1.50 which we feel is quite fair compared to other bookmakers.
The casino Bonus is different from the sports bonus. Similar to the sports bonus you will be awarded a 100% welcome bonus plus 100 free spins on the video games. For the welcome bonus, you have to bet the welcome bonus 25 times in order to be able to withdraw the amount, and for the free spins, you have to wager 80 times for it to be eligible for withdrawal.
Moreover, if you do combination bets Rivalo will give you up to a 25% combo bonus.
Rivalo also offers one of the highest in-game (live) odds compared to other competitors.
Rivalo offers loyalty programs to its users.
Customer care, live chat, email support, telephone
Customer care is an integral part of an organization, while Rivalo doesn’t have a live chat or a telephone number you can call to “to”, there’s an email provided on the website where you can send your questions to and will be answered within 48 hours.
You can register with Rivalo from your home country, but make sure to check that first because there is a list of countries where you cannot register from.
Some of these countries, at the time of publishing, are The United States of America, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and more.
The registration process will take a few minutes, basically, you need to provide your name, last name, email address, choose a username and submit your mobile number and you’re up and running.
For verification, Rivalo will contact you and you have to provide some legal documents such as your passport or ID to complete the opening of your account.
Rivalo offers 6 deposit options Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, Neteller,Bitcoin, paysafecard and MuchBetter. The minimum deposit varies depending on the payment method but is $10 for most of the methods.

The maximum withdrawal sum is $2,400 for Skrill and Neteller; $17,000 for paysafecard; $111,000 for Bitcoin.
Bear in mind, you are only allowed 3 free withdrawals per week, anything more than that you will be charged $5 for the transaction. However, withdrawals via Bitcoin are free.
Reliability, Integrity and Safety
Over the past few years, Rivalo has gained a lot of attention from the betting market which is pretty good for a website that was only launched in 2013.
Personal data and transactions of all the users are stored safely in offline servers. Rivalo uses the GeoTrust SSL encryption as their line of defence. They also use a high-level SHA-256 hash algorithm combined with a 2048-bit key.
What does the site not have?
Unlike most of its competitors, the website does not have a mobile app either on Android or on Ios. The mobile app plays a crucial point in the user interface as it can send you notifications for the upcoming matches or the live games that you have placed bets on.
We strongly recommend Rivalo develop a mobile app for both Android and iOS.
