Riverbelle Poker Review

Click here for $300 Sign-Up Bonus, 1500% Match

You like a good signup bonus in your card room? How about up to $300 on a $20 deposit? Riverbelle Poker is part of the larger Belle Rock Gaming Group which includes 5 online casinos and 3 online poker rooms (the other two being Lucky Nugget and The Gaming Club).

Riverbelle promises southern hospitality at their site, though I'm hard-pressed to find how they accomplish this. Still, as themes go, the riverboat motif is as appealing as any other. What I like about them, though, is not their background graphics, but their keen eye to fairness, integrity, and security. Their site has some of the most detailed pages on security, fraud, collusion, responsible gaming, privacy, and internet security imaginable.

I like peace of mind in my card room.

Software & Graphics
Microgaming (as are all Prima Network partner sites)
Flat, clean interface - more text-based than graphics-based (love it or leave it)
Tends to be slow and buggy - prone to disconnects, timeouts, etc., despite frequent updates
