Golden Rivera Brings Real Money Gambling to Facebook

One of the major complaints that gamblers had on Facebook was the lack of an online casino that offered real money wagering options. Noticing the need for a real casino on Facebook, Golden Rivera online casino has introduced real money gambling for  fans on the social networking site. Facebook fans can now access the gambling portal through an integrated interactive medium which does not even redirect you to the gambling site’s page and allows you to bet while still being logged on Facebook.

This is a one of a kind option which is not available in any other online casino. It remains to be seen how people react to this venture, especially considering Facebook has many active under-18 and under-21 users.

Ease of Access

One of the noteworthy features of this new online casino is the flexibility offered to the players. For starters, you have to visit the fan page of the Golden Rivera online casino to gamble. There are a few posts here, which contain information on how to go about gambling on Golden Rivera.

There are basically two options through which you can gamble on Golden Rivera on Facebook – the play now option or the download option. The play now option is probably more exciting of the two as it can be used while you are still logged into Facebook. All you have to do is click on the play now link that is located on the fan page and a flash based interactive user interface is launched. There, you can create an account (in case you don’t have an account) or log in using your existing Facebook account and begin gambling.

In the download feature, the link from the fan page will begin a download of the user interface required for gambling. You have to install it on your computer. After the installation is complete, you can either log in using your existing account or create a new account.

Golden Riviera User Interface

The downloaded version of the Golden Rivera casino through Facebook is the same as the one you download from the casino’s official website. All they have done is to embed the download link in the Facebook official fan page.

The play now version, which can be played while you are logged into Facebook, is however very well crafted. Even though it is a flash based interface, the developers have tried to keep the player experience similar to that on the downloadable version. This is not such an easy thing to do, considering it is flash-based software which is embedded in the web page. But credit must be given to the developers for doing that.

The look, feel and methodology is similar to the online casino version and you will be left wanting for more action, even if you switch from the download version to the Facebook’ play now’ version. The color schemes and background music is also maintained the same as in the downloadable version so as to make the regular players feel more at home.

A Venture Long Overdue

Gamblers on Facebook had been complaining a lot about the lack of a real gambling portal on the site. There were many hurdles to introduce a regular gambling portal with real money wagering on Facebook, considering its user base..

Golden Rivera has however managed in achieving that balance which will allow real money gambling on Facebook. The flexibility in the gambling options they have offered indicates that they are not promoting this venture nor influencing people to indulge in gambling. All Golden Rivera has done is to facilitate easy access to their online casino.

Attempt to Reach Out to Players Where

Max Stern, head strategist at Golden Rivera said that this venture was undertaken solely for the benefit of players. He said that people are most comfortable when they are on Facebook and that is the reason why they chose Facebook to introduce this mode of online gambling.

Stern also highlighted the fact that people tend to opt for online gambling options which are easily accessible and  provided in a place where they feel more comfortable, which in this case is Facebook. He said that people can now simultaneously check news feed, chat with friends, update profiles and play their favorite casino games.
