Rizk is an amazing slot and casino site featuring the mother and father of all alternative player reward systems – the Wheel Of Rizk, which gives players the opportunity to win free spins with all winnings paid in cash.

 Screenshoot

Rizk is the brainchild of Gaming Innovation Group, whose path to domination of the online casino world really began with the launch of Guts.com in 2013.  Rizk itself was launched in 2016 and has grown to become their flagship brand. So why is it so popular with players?  We have a few ideas about that:

  • A bonus based welcome offer with relatively low wagering requirements
  • Fabulous selection of slot games
  • Lots going on (e.g. the Rizk Races)
  • Emphasis on customer service (e.g. the Withdrawal Lock)
  • A modern player reward scheme without wagering requirements
  • Fun but relatively unobtrusive theming (Captain Rizk the superhero)
  • Gamification, in the form of the Wheel of Rizk

The Wheel of Rizk isn’t the only reward wheel out there, but it is certainly one of the best as all the prizes are free of wagering requirements.  The Wheel (and on occasion its even more exciting variants the Super Wheel and the Extra Wheel) are spun after the player has filled their Power Bar (through play).  The main rewards are free spins (at higher levels, these are a higher value per spin) and cash, and there’s also a Jackpot symbol (from level 10 up) and a Double Speed chip which can be activated to fill the Power Bar at double speed for a limited time.

Most players would agree that a wagering requirement on a welcome bonus is a fair trade off against having the extra funds to try the site out with, but once the welcome bonus is no longer in play wagering requirements become far more intrusive and annoying.  A rewards system that pays out based on play not deposits and doesn’t have any wagering requirements on the prizes means that players can enjoy spinning the Wheel of Rizk knowing that whatever the outcome, it won’t interfere with their ability to withdraw winnings.

Promotions at Rizk include Double Speed and Lossback chips, Net Ent network prize draws, and Rizk’s take on slot tournaments, Rizk Races.

Rizk Races run every 30 minutes, 24/7.  Most have prizes of free spins (with no wagering requirement on the winnings) but there are two a day with substantial cash prizes.  In each race, the aim is to score as many points as possible within the specified number of spins and time limit.  Points are awarded for wins, with extra points for 3 wins in a row, 3 losses in a row and big wins of more than 10x original stake.  Some of the races including the two big ones focus on a specific game whereas with others, any game from the “Race Games” section can be played i.e. most slot games.

The slots themselves include hugely popular titles from the likes of Net Ent and Microgaming alongside games from up and coming providers like Big Time Gaming (Bonanza, Danger High Voltage etc) and ELK (Wild Toro, Wild Seas etc).  Progressive jackpots include Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods, IGT Megajackpots and many smaller ones.

In 2017 Rizk introduced the Withdrawal Lock – an easy way for a player to make a withdrawal irreversible so they won’t be tempted to play with it instead.  This is in massive contrast to what many other casinos do which is to have withdrawals pending for several days in order to encourage players to cancel.

One unusual provision at Rizk relates to the weighting of roulette games towards the wagering requirement of the welcome bonus.  At most casinos these would not count at all or would count at some derisory amount like 5% – but at Rizk, Roulette and Live dealer Roulette count at 50% (correct at time of writing but please check the bonus terms and conditions  and full terms and conditions for the latest information before depositing or playing).
