Riva Casino Review

Review last updated - June 2014

OVERVIEW | 5.96/10

Riva casino are the sister property to NetBet (formally Casino 770). These casino have had a high rate of player issues in the past and were unresponsive to dispute mediation, but recently appear to be making a big effort to ensure that all player complaints are handled properly.


Only one of the reviewers who works regularly for holds an account with NetBet casino. They report positive experiences.

Up until recently, NetBet casino have been inconsistent in their engagement with dispute mediation, moving on and off CasinoMeister's rogue list and leaving several unanswered complaints at Ask Gamblers.

More recently however, while this NetBet casino have stated that they wish to engage with resolving player complaints, in situations where they have seized player funds they are only prepared to discuss as much information as they've released to the player, effectively making mediation a fruitless endeavour. That's not a complete roadblock and we have managed to resolve several complaints for players, but it does make things more difficult at times.

If NetBet continue to work with us where player complaints come in and this relationship improves over time, we will increase their Trustworthiness score by 1 point every 6 months to a maximum of 6.

Only casinos carrying ThePOGG Deposit Guarantee Seal can score higher than 8/10.

Due to the design of the Riva casino website, we cannot monitor their terms and conditions for changes.
