Review last updated – January 2013
Golden Riviera are part of the Star Partners group, formed after the merger of the Golden Star Network group and the Vegas Partner Lounge in 2008.
Only one of the reviewers who works for this site regularly holds an account with the Star Partners group of casinos and they held this for less than a year. They report positive experiences with Crazy Vegas casino.
Golden Riviera and the Star Partners group of casinos have no notable complaints at any of the major dispute mediation websites however they do have a warning at Affiliate Guard Dog and GaffG.com for retroactively changing terms and conditions – see http://www.affiliateguarddog.com/forums/star-partner-has-warning-status-t3604.html and http://gaffg.com/affiliate-programs/star-partner-review .

Comp Point Program 3/10
Golden Riviera casino do offer a comp point program. For every £10 wagered at Golden Riviera casino on slots games you will receive 1 Loyalty Lounge Point and every 1000 Loyalty Lounge Points can be converted to £5.
Not all games earn points at the same rates;
- 1 Loyalty Point for 10 Credits wagered on Slots and Parlor Games
- 1 Loyalty Point for 20 Credits wagered on Table Poker, Casino War, Red Dog and SicBo
- 1 Loyalty Point for 40 Credits wagered on all Roulette
- 1 Loyalty Point for 200 Credits wagered on Video poker, Craps, Baccarat
- 1 Loyalty Point for 500 Credits wagered on all Blackjack and all Aces
For slots games this is about half as good as the standard Playtech comp point program and for all other games this is substantially weaker. Points also expire after 3 months if not redeemed.
Licencing and Contact information 6/10
Golden Riviera are licensed by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA - http://www.lga.org.mt/lga/home.aspx ). We consider the LGA to be one of the better gam-bling licensing authorities on the market at the moment – see our LGA Information Page.

Certainly in line with the better end of the Microgaming venues, Golden Riviera offer a good choice for anyone looking for a new venue. Please keep in mind however that you can only claim bonuses at one of the Star Partners venues unless invited to do so at further venues. This being the case, ensure to pick the venue that offers the bonuses that most appeal to you.
