Club Riches is an online sportsbook that welcomes New Zealand players with a 200% matched bonus worth up to NZ$300 on your first deposit just for signing up.
Once you’ve joined the club, sports bettors can enjoy competitive odds on a wide range of sports and events and a large choice of payment methods including bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Club Riches Sport is operated by Media 21 BV, a company established under the laws of Curacao with company number 157422 and a registered address of Fransche Bloemweg 4, Curacao.
They operate under licence number 8048/JAZ2021-132 issued to Antillephone, while the government of Curacao authorise and regulates the service.
Digital 21 Limited is a company established under the laws of Cyprus with a registered address of Voukourestiou 25, Neptune House, 1st Floor, Flat/Office 11, Zakaki, 3045, Limassol, Cyprus and providing payment services as a payment agent.
Club Riches launched their generous welcome offer of 200% up to NZ$300 for new sportsbook players at the end of 2021. With the promotion due to run until the end of 2023, New Zealand players can register for an account anytime.
Here are the important terms and conditions potential new sign-ups need to be aware of:
Club Riches have a promotions page offering their latest deals to existing players, but at the time of writing, we couldn’t see any free bets.
Football fans can get a 50% sports to reload bonus worth up to €25 to bet on the Champions League, with a minimum wagering amount of €15.
There aren’t any other sport offers aside from the new member bonus but players can get 20 free spins for Take Olympus and a NZ$3,000 casino welcome bonus plus 100 free spins on Tower of Fortuna if they like casino gaming.
The sportsbook section of Club Riches showcases banners above the fold flagging sporting events such as UEFA Champions League games in football, the Indian Wells tennis tournament and NBA basketball. The following are included as clickable icons:
Club Riches offer odds in the form of decimals, fractions, American, Hong Kong and Malaysian style, whilst you can view the page in Euro or Asian iterations.
The value of their odds are competitive across a wide range of sports and events, but they don’t seem to flag boosted or enhanced odds on the sportsbook page.
Club Riches have adopted a relatively innovative approach to their sportsbook offering, with a laser focus on the huge number of domestic and international football tournaments that take place across the globe.
Their Soccer pages are quite data-heavy but do offer spots of colour, with nice flag icons used to demonstrate where in the world the competition or league is taking place as well as timer icons and red numbering indicating the scoreline.
Otherwise Club Riches is rather similar to the other sportsbooks New Zealand players can use to place wagers, but we do like the navy, gold and white design they’ve gone for.
One big black mark on their copybook is the distinct lack of horse racing and greyhounds, which is quite rare for a global sports betting site to overlook.
Your bet slip can be found on the right-hand side of the page and offers options for single, multiple and system bets, with a quick bet option activated by clicking the lightning bolt.
Club Riches does have a Live Betting section for players to enjoy, with clickable icons for All Sports, Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Volleyball and Beach Volleyball available.
You can also select the ‘Live’ toggle underneath these icons to flitter between in-play betting and regular wagering.
There isn’t any live streaming available, but this is to be expected.
Club Riches is easy on the eye and simple to navigate, with players able to move around the site easily with top leagues flagged halfway down the page and all sports clickable on the left-hand side.
Club Riches is available in multiple languages including Russian, French, German, Spanish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese and Hindi as well as English.
There is also a search function under the tabs outlined for Sports, Live Betting, Upcoming, Results and Promotions.
Club Riches accept a range of payment methods, with the likes of VISA, Interac, MasterCard, Bank Transfer, Jeton, eZeeWallet, AstroPay, Neosurf, MuchBetter, American Express and Bitcoin highlighted on the sportsbook welcome bonus page.
In total there are over 40 payment methods accepted on the site, with the process usually instant with funds available in your cashier seconds after you deposit. Some options like bank transfer may take 1-2 working days, while you can withdraw funds from your account anytime.
Club Riches recommend players use the same payment method for withdrawing as you use for depositing, while players should be aware that upon your first withdrawal you’ll be asked to send documents for verification. This is a legal necessity and ensures player safety.
Withdrawal timings depend on the selected payment method and verification of your account - happening instantly in most cases while bank transfers can take up to 2-3 working days.
All transactions are processed using the latest security technologies and features, with no compromise on this matter allowed. You can find out more information in the FAQ section of the site.
Check out: the next level of mobile gaming with online casinos with an iPhone casino app
Club Riches claim to be mobile friendly, but our experience trying to load the mobile version of the site via web browser on an iPhone left a lot to be desired.
They don’t appear to have a dedicated betting app for iOS or Android, but perhaps this is an area the brand can work on in the coming months.
Registration at Club Riches is straightforward - to do so simply click the yellow ‘Join Now’ button in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
To create an account enter your first name, last name, birth date, mobile phone number, email, password, address, city, zipcode, country and currency of choice.
You’ll need to select your bonus - casino or sports - or opt for no-bonus and confirm you are aged 18+ and agree to their terms and conditions. Then you can just sign up and deposit now.
Club Riches don’t appear to have a VIP program or loyalty club of note, which might be off-putting for some players.
Club Riches claim to offer 24/7 online support, but we could not find any live chat functionality on the desktop version of the site.
They do offer players the option to ask a question, inputting your name, email, country, subject, whether you’ve made a deposit, message and attachment, but the lack of live chat is particularly frustrating given the amount of online sportsbooks out there that do.
Club Riches have a responsible gaming section on their site which outlines their approach to keeping players safe. They claim to understand the potential risks of gambling and state it’s their responsibility to ensure you’re aware of the risks too.
They outline their approach to underage gaming, player self-exclusion, questions to ask yourself if you think you might be gambling too much and three external bodies you can use if you are struggling.
Club Riches is a relatively new betting site, casino and live casino platform that offers New Zealand players a 200% sport welcome bonus worth up to NZ$300.
The site is authorised and licensed by Curacao eGaming and the sportsbook is as comprehensive as we have seen. Betting odds are competitive and the site is neatly designed, with a strong live betting section for players to enjoy.
The user experience is very good, with Club Riches available for players in 10 languages including English. They accept over 40 different payment methods with transactions processed swiftly and securely.
The brand is mobile-friendly, sign up is quick and easy, customer support is available 24/7 and they take responsible gambling practices seriously.
