Roy Richie is owned and operated by BTM Entertainment Group Ltd. Casinos. They’re licensed to operate and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.
They’ve been online since 2017.
They’re still pretty new, having launched in the first quarter (or two) of 2017. I found very few reviews covering either their casino or sportsbook.
It looks like they have a 3.5/5 rating on LatestCasinoBonuses.com. However, some of the reasons they give – such as the blank pages when you click a game tab – is due to the author’s ignorance, and not due to anything Roy Richie has done.
Roy Richie also has a 7.78/10 at AskGamblers.com. There are no complaints, which isn’t shocking considering how new they are.
That’s about the extent of what I could find from legit review sites.
You can say their reputation is good. But the truth is that they’re a new brand, which means we need more time before we can really gauge how good or bad their reputation is.
You cannot play here if you’re a resident of one of the following countries:
You can contact Roy Richie using:
I contacted them to ask them questions about their promotions and sports betting limits. I received both responses quickly, so no complaints there.
What I didn’t like, though, is how they simply pointed me to their promotions and terms pages – which I said I already looked at. So, I felt like my questions went more or less unanswered.
You can make a deposit using the following options:
The minimum deposit is €10 for credit cards, e-wallets and wires. It’s €20 for bank transfers
First-time depositors can deposit no more than €1,000. After authentication you can deposit as much as €1,000 per transaction.
You can cash out your winnings using one of the following options:
The minimum cash out by bank transfer is €30. The minimum for Visa is €10. The max you can cash out is €5,000 per day (per card).
They say nothing about additional limits, nor do they say anything about progressive jackpot wins. Given who they’re licensed through, I wouldn’t be shocked if they paid progressive winners outright, though.
As for fees, all they say is they reserve the right to charge a 4% processing fee. But they say they “reserve the right,” which leads me to think it’s not guaranteed. That said, your mileage will vary.
There’s a welcome bonus for both sports bettors and casino players. Let’s start with the sportsbook offer first.
The bonus funds will hit your account once you wager your deposit one (1) time on odds of 2.00 or higher.
Once you have the bonus money, you’ll need to wager that plus your deposit 10x on odds of 2.00 or higher before you can cash out or transfer it to one of their other products.
You’ll have 90 days to fulfill the bonus – anything left over will be forfeited.
Here’s how the offer works:
The playthrough on each bonus is 20x the deposit and bonus (which isn’t terrible). You must fulfill their playthrough terms on slot machines online EXCEPT for these machines:
You need to go through each offer in order, and you’ll have 31 days from the time you make your first deposit to complete them all.
They responded by giving me a link to the casino offer mentioned above. They didn’t say anything about the live casino offer. So, if you see it, don’t hold your breath – it may not be available.
There are only a couple of additional offers, and they’re all for the sportsbook. Here are the details:
The minimum bet you can place to qualify for this offer is €5 on odds of 1.60 or higher. They say nothing about a playthrough, but they do say that any bet that completes the requirements for a free bet may not later be the subject of a cash out.
I take this to mean that you cannot cash out the free bet itself. But you can use it to make bets that, if you win, you CAN cash out.
To use this feature just head to the My Bets section. If the cash out feature is an option, all you need to do is click the button to claim your winnings.
Sometimes a partial cash out will be an option. If it is, an indicator will appear next to the cash out button. Just click on the slider to select how much you want to cash out – the rest will remain as your active bet.
Not bad overall.
It’d be nice to see a few incentives for existing players – a reload bonus, or maybe some kind of comps or VIP program. I’d like to see a couple additional offers for casino players, too.
But Roy Richie is still new yet. There’s plenty of time to add more offers.
And what they have works for now. It’s hard to complain about a casino offer that’s broken up over 4 deposits, and only has a 20x (d+b) playthrough.
My biggest gripe is that you’ll only have 31 days to do it.
Keep in mind the sports and markets they cover may change as sports go in and out of season. But here’s what they were covering when I reviewed them.
The sports you can find bets for include:
The types of bets you can make include:
This is amongst many other types of bets that will often be on a sport-by-sport basis.
When I checked them out they covered International markets. Here are the games, leagues, etc. they covered when I was there.
They do offer live esports betting, too. There was only one match going when I reviewed Roy Richie, so it’s hard to say how robust their live esports betting is.
Overall, I’d say they have an average esports betting section. They don’t offer live streaming, or any other perks/features you might find at other esports betting sites.
They also don’t cover all the different games the better esports betting sites do.
That said, I think recreational esports bettors will be plenty happy here.
They do offer live betting. The offered live action on the following sports when I was there:
This is a well-rounded selection overall. And there was plenty more scheduled for later.
I sent them an email asking about their limits. The response I received was less than satisfactory – here’s what they said:
It sounds like you’ll have to find out what their limits are when you go to place your bets.
I’d say they have a decent sportsbook. There’s nothing here that made my jaw drop, but then again there’s nothing that turned me off about them, either.
They have an easy to use site that’s easy to navigate and is mobile friendly. Their mobile site looks like it’s laid out well and easy to use too.
I only wish they were a little more forthcoming about their betting limits.
Overall, if you like what you see above, I don’t see any reason not to check these guys out.
I found this surprising, but they only work with a couple of software providers – NetEnt, iSoftBet and Evolution Gaming.
This isn’t a bad thing – that’s not why I’m surprised.
I’m surprised because most international casinos work with 5-10+ different companies.
But NetEnt, iSoftBet and Evolution Gaming is more than enough. Between them you’ll have a robust selection of slots, table games, video poker machines and live casino games to play.
We’ll look at a few examples here in just a second.
They have an instant play casino – which is where you play their games from your browser – which should be accessible from Windows and Macs. Basically, if you can use Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc., you should be good to go.
It looks like they have a mobile-friendly casino, too. No app is needed – just go to their website and you can play their games from your device’s browser.
Their mobile game selection is on the small side – only 59 games. Most of them are slots, which is no surprise. There are only 2 card games – one of which is blackjack, the other joker poker video poker.
It’d be nice to see more card, table and video poker games in the future. But considering they’re new, I think this is a reasonable start.
The following are some examples of games you’ll find at Roy Richie. Everything is categorized the same way you’ll find it on their casino, too.
We’ll include any thoughts we have after each section.
Honestly, if Roy Richie couldn’t or didn’t want to work with Microgaming, then I’m glad NetEnt is what they did choose to go with. They give you a nice mix of traditional slot games that you’ll find in between all the big name brand machines in a brick and mortar casino. But they also have many licensed slots, too.
For example, I found:
But there are TONS of other slots I’d love to play. Wonky Wabbits is one, The Invisible Man is another, and anything to do with outer space works for me.
There were lots of NetEnt slots I didn’t see, though – but that could be because they don’t offer them yet, or because I can’t see all their games since I’m in the United States and didn’t create an account.
You can look at this a couple different ways – they don’t offer nearly the number of live casino games other casinos do, or they cover the most popular games live casino players will want.
I prefer the latter AND I’m optimistic that it’s just a matter of time before they add more. Because both NetEnt and Evolution have live dealer games.
This isn’t the biggest roulette selection I’ve seen, but it’s pretty good for a new casino. Plus, on top of this they offer variations of the games in the list above. Those will include low, mid and high stakes, as well as a VIP variant.
Similar to the roulette section, there are several more blackjack games they could add. But this is an okay start. You’ll find additional variants of these titles that include low, mid and high stakes tables.
I have a couple qualms with this section.
For one thing, ‘more games’ is about as vague as a description could be. What happened to table games, card games, or video poker games?
And on that note, why are all these games lumped into one category?
I feel like there are a lot of games missing, too. I count 4 video poker titles. With a couple searches on our site you can easily find a casino that offers 6-10+.
This is something I’ve noticed across most NetEnt casinos, though. So, it’s not terribly shocking – just disappointing.
But there are several other games I didn’t find here, either. I searched for keno, bingo, scratch cards and craps – didn’t find any of them.
Again, it’s possible they have them tucked away, only accessible once you create your account. But that makes no sense. Why display 80% (a random number) of your games, but hide the rest? That could turn people off from joining.
Outside of those complaints, though, I like their casino. There’s plenty of games to choose from, and there’s something for just about everyone.
Yes and no.
However, they can use more promotions – especially for casino players. They also have no VIP, comp or rewards program I could find.
There’s also nothing terribly different about them. So, the question I ask is, why should you sign up here – at a riskier, brand-new casino – when there are loads of other established sportsbooks and casinos you can join instead.
But if you liked what you read above, and don’t agree nor care about the complaints I have with them, I see no reason why you shouldn’t gamble here.
