Club Riches is still one of the newest online casinos and betting sites, having launched only last year (in 2021). The sportsbook was added at the end of the year, which is why we are taking a closer look at it for you now. Is Club Riches a good betting site for Indian punters?
The site is operated by Media 21 B.V., a company that is registered and licensed in Curacao. There is not a lot we can tell you about the company itself, but from looking at Club Riches, we can tell their approach is very professional. Club Riches doesn’t strike us as a betting site that is still brand new. Indeed, it looks polished, well done and gives off an air of experience.
For now, Club Riches focuses only on customers from a few countries, among them Russia, Finland, Brazil and Norway – the few languages besides English that the site is available in. Customers from India are welcome as well, of course, and Indian rupees are supported as a currency.
New customers from India can grab a welcome offer, which now even includes a sports offer with a free bet. Let’s find out whether Club Riches is a good choice for your betting needs.
This is what we liked about them:
- Welcomes customers from India
- Solid cricket and kabaddi betting
- Sportsbook is attractive and easy to use
- Excellent casino and live casino tables
- Live chat available
- Convenient payment options for Indian punters
What we didn’t like:
- Only Curacao license
- No live streaming
- Very strict bonus conditions
Safety and Security
Given that Club Riches is still very new, we have only a few things to judge their safety and security by. Of course, we have checked their gambling license, which was issued by Curacao. As you will know, we are generally a bit more wary about this one as it doesn’t offer the best protection for customers. If you encounter issues with a betting site or online casino that is only licensed in Curacao, you may not receive the best support here. Other gambling jurisdictions are much stricter, which is why we usually want to see betting sites with more than just one betting license.
As such, we then proceed to judge a betting site on its own merits. But given how new Club Riches still is, there has not been much time to build a reputation. We have found a few reviews about their casino, which are positive. Fewer reviews about their sportsbook are available. This also means there aren’t many customer reviews yet.
Whilst we have not seen anything outright negative or something that would make us suspicious of Club Riches, we do have to wait and see how things develop. Thus far, we have been left with a positive impression about Club Riches, meaning they seem to be doing many things right.
Since they are new, we do recommend you take a cautious approach by depositing smaller amounts of money, testing them thoroughly and making multiple withdrawal requests before you fully commit to this betting site in India.
Betting and gambling at Club Riches
Whilst Club Riches is primarily an online casino, their sportsbook is by no means an afterthought. Logging in from India, you will find cricket and kabaddi at the top of the list of sports on the left-hand menu. Of course, kabaddi betting is only available during major kabaddi sporting events, but at the time of our review the Pro Kabaddi League was still on-going, which meant that even Club Riches offered odds.
Whilst these are the sports punters from India are particularly interested in, Club Riches offers plenty of other sports for you to bet on. This includes football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, table tennis, futsal, handball, golf, the Olympics, snooker and many more sports. We regularly review new sportsbooks for you and Club Riches is one of the more comprehensive ones. There are not just the dozen main sports most punters are interested in present here. In fact, almost 30 sports were listed at the time of our review, which makes them a good competition for many of the most established bookmakers.
We found a solid choice of markets and betting options for many sports, though the number of markets is smaller for niche sports or smaller events.
We also checked the available odds for you and found them to be quite competitive. They are certainly no worse than most other bookmakers offer.
The focus is on live betting here as well, which means many more markets and odds become available as an event or match draws closer. Future betting options almost always only include outright bets, whilst live betting can offer dozens or more betting options for most sports.
One thing missing at this point is live streaming. Live events will get updated stats and some basic animations, but nothing more sophisticated than that.
Club Riches started out as an online casino and when you launch the site, the landing page is the casino page. When we first came across Club Riches, we liked it immediately. It gives us a classy atmosphere, solid filtering options for games and games from some of the best developers in the world. We always appreciate seeing a collection of slots from the likes of Yggdrasil Gaming, NetEnt, Play’n GO, Push Gaming, Elk Studios, Red Tiger, Thunderkick, Microgaming, Pragmatic Play and quite a few others.
They make most of the best games around, providing hours of entertainment and solid options to win occasionally.
Alas, winning big is another matter entirely as there are none of the popular jackpot games available at Club Riches. Not a single progressive jackpot from NetEnt, Microgaming or Yggdrasil is featured here. And the games available in the jackpot category are unknown to us. So, we don’t really know what you can expect here.
If you are looking for some live action, you can visit the live casino, where many great games are available. This also includes Andar Bahar and Teen Patti beside many other popular options from Evolution Gaming, Ezugi or Pragmatic Play and other providers.
It’s an impressive collection and the lack of big jackpots aside, you do get a very good online casino at Club Riches.
Welcome Offer and Promotions
Oddly, when you click on the promotions link, you only find a handful of ongoing bonuses and promotions there. You have to visit the homepage to also find the welcome offers.
Click on the welcome offer and you will be asked to sign up and choose your bonus. Thankfully, a little ‘i’ icon in the top right corner of the bonus logo will reveal further details.
The sports welcome bonus offers the following:
- 150% on your first deposit and up to INR 25,000 plus an INR 250 free bet
- Minimum qualifying deposit = INR 560
- Rollover requirements: 12x deposit + bonus (on sports bets only)
- Minimum odds: 2.0 or higher
- Valid for 30 days
We recommend you read the bonus terms carefully before claiming this bonus. Since the wagering requirements are quite steep, we also don’t recommend that you claim the full bonus as it might be difficult to meet the rollover requirements.
New customers also have the option to select the casino welcome bonus. Here new players get three bonuses for the first three deposits and up to INR 100,000.
- 1st deposit – 100% match bonus and up to INR 50,000
- 2nd deposit – 50% match bonus and up to INR 25,000
- 3rd deposit – 25% match bonus and up to INR 25,000
The wagering is 30x the bonus and deposit, which you have 30 days to complete. There are further details you should be aware of, so you definitely need to read the full terms and conditions here as well.
Other ongoing promotions include a 25% reload bonus and up to INR 10,000, which you can claim each week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. There is also a 10% live casino cashback promotion that is available Friday to Sunday every week. And for the slot of the week 15 free spins are available once you have wagered INR 2,500.
Whilst overall a solid mix of promotions, we are missing more sports promotions such as boost offers or free bets. The sports welcome bonus is a new addition, so we are hoping further sports bonuses will be added.
There is no separate page for payments at Club Riches and their FAQ section is also rather limited when it comes to information about deposits and withdrawals. In fact, you will be referred to the bottom of the homepage, where banking methods available in your country are shown with their logos.
For customers from India, this includes:
- Net Banking
- Bitcoin and other cryptos
Unfortunately, that’s about all we know about the payment options at Club Riches as the FAQ don’t provide further details. You will have to visit the cashier once you have created an account to find out more.
The terms and conditions mention a €3,000 (or currency equivalent) transaction limit for withdrawals, but that is all.
Also keep in mind that you do need to go through a KYC process here and it is best to get this done prior to requesting your first withdrawal. Make sure to get all the information required for the ID process at Club Riches in order as to avoid any delays.
Club Riches has a small FAQ section, which will hopefully grow in the future as only a few topics and questions are covered here at the moment. Thankfully, you do get the option of asking questions yourself, which we hope will help expand this section in the long run.
Beyond that, you can click on the little ‘help’ button in the bottom right-hand corner, which opens up the live chat with a ‘bot’. You can ask your question here and if there is no answer available or none that helps you, you can click on ‘Get in touch’ and talk to an actual person. We don’t know the opening times for the customer service at Club Riches, but it does not seem to be around the clock.
Finally, when you click on ‘Contacts’ at the bottom of the page, you can fill out a web form with your query and it will let you know the expected response time as well. When we checked it out, it said that a reply would take 2 hours.
As we have mentioned above, we like the classy look of the Club Riches casino. Dark blue background and golden highlights. It’s looks good without being too much and even tacky. The layout is classic and easy to use, navigation is smooth, and it doesn’t take long to get from A to B.
The sportsbook is excellent. It’s actually kept in a light grey and white colour with a few pink highlights. It is modern, well organised and very easy to use even for inexperienced punters. You don’t get the impression that the sportsbook was added as an afterthought. Indeed, a lot of thought has been put into it, which certainly shows.
And the mobile page is just as well done, offering a full sportsbook and casino experience on smaller screens, which all mobile players will appreciate.
There is no separate mobile betting app available at this time, but it is also not strictly necessary.
We liked Club Riches even without the sportsbook, but the addition of one has certainly been welcome, especially since it really a good sportsbook. There is solid cricket and kabaddi betting available and you’ll find plenty of others sports to bet on as well.
Club Riches can improve in a few areas, but most of our complaints are smaller issues, and one of them would stop us from recommending them as a good betting site for customers from India. Just be mindful of the steep wagering conditions for their bonuses and you should have a great experience here.
