Launched in 2016 and offering a ‘No Bullshit’ (their words, not ours) approach to online casinos, Rizk has been one of Gaming Innovation Group’s flagship products, along with the Guts, Kaboo, Thrills and High Roller brands. They’ve helped set themselves apart with the superhero Captain Rizk character (he’s all over the site, in fact), the exciting Wheel of Rizk feature (providing cashback, bonuses and more via a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ style side game) and regular Rizk Races (essentially, time-limited and very intense slots tournaments with prizes) in which to take part.
Rizk comes with little actual risk to you, however, as it possesses two of the most coveted licenses in the industry: the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). This means you can rest assured that this casino is trustworthy. So, let’s see why players based in India might choose to throw their lot in with Captain Rizk…
Rizk Welcome Bonus
Rizk offers not one but two welcome bonuses. One is for those wishing to play online slots (just like we do), while the other is specifically tailored to those who would rather sit (virtually speaking) at the Live Casino tables. Here, we’ll concentrate on the regular casino welcome offer, but for those more interested in the Live Casino bonus, we just let you know that it’s worth up to ₹25,000 and there’s a minimum deposit of ₹1,000 required to activate it. More information about the bonus and wagering requirements can be found on the Rizk Live Casino site itself.
For the slots players among you, here’s the deal: a 100% bonus up to ₹20,000 is available on your first ever deposit at the casino, plus you’ll receive 50 free spins. The spins are given out in sets of 10 each day after your initial deposit for the following games: Pirates Plenty, Starburst, Vikings Go Berzerk, Dragon’s Fire and Book of Dead. Best of all the free spins are wager-free!
The minimum deposit possible on the casino welcome bonus is a reasonable ₹1,000 (giving you ₹2,000 in playing funds) and the maximum is ₹10,000 (which Rizk will double up to ₹20,000). Just note that this bonus comes with a quite hefty wagering requirement of 40x, so if you take the maximum bonus, you’ll need to play through ₹400,000 within 30 days on slots to satisfy this condition. Another thing to mention is that the maximum bet allowed with bonus funds is ₹500.
As we mentioned above, the free spins have no wagering requirements. So, even if you win with your free spins, there’s no hidden catch before you can withdraw – they are genuinely free to use! Note, however, that each set of spins is only available for 24 hours before they expire.
With some 800 games and counting, Rizk sure does provide in terms of both variety and quality. It’s easy to see why both of these things are covered so well when you look at the who’s who list of game providers onboard: NetEnt, Microgaming, Novomatic, Play’n Go, Quickspin and more besides. In terms of slots, there are popular TV spin-offs such as Narcos (based on the Netflix series), as well as big hitters such as Gonzo’s Quest, 300 Shields Extreme and Mega Pyramid.
Jackpot hunters will also be very pleased to see progressive slot games (with totals reaching well into the multiples of million rupees) such as Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune and Hall of Gods all represented, though the complete list of such slots really does go on and on, trust us.
Rizk Live Casino
Evolution Gaming steps up to the plate to provide a live casino experience as good as any you’re likely to find in gaming mecca Goa or major Indian cities such as New Delhi or Mumbai. Here, you’ll find many variations on the classic roulette, blackjack and baccarat table games. Not only that but Monopoly, Side Bet City, Dragon Tiger, Lightening Dice and Deal or No Deal.
Rizk Sports Betting
You’ll be pleased to know that Rizk also has a sports betting site, so you can bet on India smashing the likes of Pakistan and Australia in a Cricket Test Match, as well as make wagers on everything from football, tennis and hockey to American sports like baseball and basketball.
There’s no dedicated app for either Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android mobile platforms. However, playing on your smartphone or tablet is a doddle, as you just need to point your mobile browser of choice to Rizk’s website and you’ll be greeted with a seamless casino experience. The excellent Live Casino offering ran smoothly throughout our testing period and we could find no real differences in playing on a desktop or a laptop or an iPhone SE, so we have absolutely no complaints on this aspect of the site.
Rizk Customer support
Again, the team behind Rizk really excels in this area. While there was no phone support, we found all of our test inquiries answered within 20-30 seconds whenever we contact them with bogus questions day or night. Plus they were extremely courteous and informative – we got a real sense that they just wanted to make our lives that little bit easier. And if you hate human interaction, you can always send over some words in your own time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We were equally impressed with the FAQ section on the site, which, true to the brand’s mantra, was given in a clear, concise, ‘No Bullshit’ manner. Then there’s the excellent Rizk Insider section where you can find all the latest new releases, promotions and other site updates.
Deposit & Withdrawals
Only two eWallets are available for depositing in the cashier – Neteller and Skrill – but seeing as these are the most popular ones on the entire subcontinent, we can’t complain too much here. Plus, seeing as the MasterCard and Visa credit cards were also depositing options, we think that the vast majority of Indian players will be quite happy.
In terms of withdrawals, all of the above payment methods were present and correct. Plus, you can always go for the relatively slower option of a bank wire transfer straight to your account.
Things to note are a maximum per transaction limit of ₹400,00 for both deposits and withdrawals. The minimum for deposits is ₹800, while withdrawals per transaction had a minimum of ₹1,600. So, all in all, not too bad. Regarding processing times, all were instantaneous (which is really amazing!), except for MasterCard, Visa and bank wire transfer withdrawals, which each took around 1-3 business days to complete.
Rizk Casino Review – conclusion
Special mention must go to what Rizk offers above your regular online casino – the Wheel of Rizk and Rizk Races – which give players additional bonuses, cashback offers and, most importantly, fun. They also get everything else just about right. Our only grumble was the slightly high wagering requirements on the initial welcome bonus, but the fact that the free spins were wager-free more than made up for this. So, all aboard the good ship, Rizk. You won’t regret it.
