New Zealand is a country known for its spectacular natural beauty and down-to-earth people who work hard and play hard. Adventure activities and sports are big in the Land of the Long White Cloud – it took a New Zealander to conquer Mount Everest and the All Blacks rugby team is respected and feared around the world. At the same time, fun-loving New Zealand folk love their casino games. Finding the best games to play shouldn’t be a slog, which is why so many gamers choose River Belle. Our online casino has every possible game you could ever want to play all in one convenient location.

Play on any desktop, laptop or tablet as long as you have an Internet connection – you only need one account to play across multiple devices.

Online pokies are far and away the most popular mobile casino games today. Things have come a long way since the old fruit machines and one-armed bandits of yesteryear, that’s for sure. At River Belle, we take great pride in hosting a selection of more than 500 titles crafted by our partners Microgaming and NetEnt. Microgaming have been around since 1994 and practically invented the online casino.
We partnered with them back in 1997 and haven’t looked back since, their quality is just so consistently great. Our other pokies partner is NetEnt, video pokie gurus extraordinaire. Between the two of them, Microgaming and NetEnt have won every award worth mentioning more than once and we are very proud to have them associated with River Belle.
Never mind all that, what pokies have you got? I hear you cry. We’ve got the lot, mate! Classic pokies that give a nod to those old one-armed bandits, with similar gameplay, fixed paylines and fruity symbols. The main difference is that you don’t need to skulk off to a casino, pub or hotel to play them. Then we have MegaSpins, pokies that give you the chance to play and potentially win three hands of Video Poker all at the same time.
If really big numbers are your bag, then you might want to give Mega Moolah a spin – it’s a progressive jackpot pokie which holds the world record for the biggest online progressive jackpot payout. The odds of potentially winning the big jackpot are very low, but it is a relaxing game nonetheless, with its symbols of wild animals spinning against a jungle background to a mellow jungle beat.
Symbols, themes and soundtracks – that’s the stuff that video pokies are made of, and boy do we have some absolute corkers for you. Microgaming and NetEnt have put everything they’ve got into the creating the most vivid graphics, sounds and animations for their video pokies. The level of creativity is astonishing – the themes are so rich, with all kinds of clever tricks and special features, that you can immerse yourself for hours to see what happens next.
Some people reckon that if you balance the entertainment value of a movie and a really up-to-date, cutting-edge video pokie like Treasure Skyland, Book of Oz (getting tons of plays at the moment), or the ever-popular Stumpy McDoodles, the scales tip in the pokie’s favour. Try them and see for yourself!
For a change of pace and maybe a bit of a challenge - because pokies are super entertaining but, let’s face it, they don’t take an awful lot of skill! – head on over to the table games at River Belle online casino. The Microgaming Gold Series is a collection more than 40 variations of quality casino games like Online Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat and Sic Bo. Then there are the video poker titles like Deuces Wild and Joker Poker. The ace in the hole, though, so to speak, is the latest phenomenon in the world of online casino games – the Live Dealer Casino.
As the name implies, the Live Dealer Casino transports you into the elegant ambience of the classic gaming houses of Montecarlo and Macau. It’s the full Casino Royale treatment, except you don’t have to budge an inch – it’s all streamed to your screen, courtesy of the genius interface developed by Evolution Gaming, our live casino partner. Their motto is “as real as it gets” but for a lot of people, the experience is even better than the real thing. Not only do you get to play the classic card and table games the way they were meant to be played – with a real-live dealer who deals real cards or uses real casino devices – but you get to play them in a way that uses online functionality to deliver more variety. Gameplay is streamlined with all kinds of useful features that provide more interesting betting options. Live Casino Blackjack, for example, has a Pre-Decision feature that lets you and the other players Stand, Hit, Double Down or Split at the same time as the first player is making their betting decision. A chat feature lets you interact with the dealer and other players, too, adding a social dimension.
If it feels like the modern world revolves around screens and smartphones, that’s because it pretty much does. Striding boldly into the future like we’ve always done, we at River Belle have created a mobile casino for your personal convenience. Most of our titles are available as mobile games on our handy River Belle mobile app, so you can take the fun with you wherever you go, whenever you feel like it. Needless to say, our mobile casino games all play and display perfectly. Even the high-performance video pokies have been optimised for the screen size and processing power of your device. Better still, you can load your wallet and withdraw potential winnings. If anything goes amiss, our Customer Service Agents are permanently on stand-by to help you via live chat and email.
