BetGold (formerly RioAposta) is one of the top sports betting and casino sites in Brazil and it offers the customer a range of different sports to place wagers on, as well as a full slate of slots and table games. The owner of the site is OGaming and the main language that it uses is Portuguese – although visitors from other countries have the option of translating it into a language that they are familiar with. That makes it a user-friendly website for both local and international gamblers, as does the simple layout with the different parts of the site clearly labelled.
The most popular type of casino games are slots and BetGold has an impressive 145 different online slot games available for its users. These include exciting titles such as the vampire-themed game Blood Eternal, the mafia inspired Slotfather 2 and the horror-show that is Frankenslot’s Monster. One very useful feature in the slots section of the site is the ‘Top 10 Slots’ that shows the user what the most popular games are, so they can go straight to them if they want.
When it comes to table games, BetGold has all of the main favourites like roulette, blackjack and poker. Both roulette and blackjack can be played live at the site, which will make them more appealing to sports betting fans who are used to betting on live sporting events rather than playing casino games.
Sports betting options
There will be a lot of sports bet fans using BetGold, because that is the primary focus of the site. It certainly delivers on that score, as customers can place bets on a wide variety of sports that include tennis, ice hockey, baseball and basketball. Football betting is the main event at BetGold however, and every major European league is available to bet on here, from La Liga to the English Premier League. Listings of live matches by date are provided on the football page of the site, making it very easy to find the game you want to bet on.
Bonuses and promotions
BetGold boasts several attractive promotional offers, including a welcome bonus for new players of 100% up to a maximum of $300. Those using the casino section of the site can take advantage of a welcome bonus offer of 100% of their initial deposit free up to $500 maximum. The second deposit entitles them to another 50% up to a maximum of $600, with 75% up to $900 max for the third deposit. For sports gamblers, the Club Freebet promotion gives them $25 free betting (Bronze), $50 free betting (Silver) or $100 free betting (Gold).

Anyone thinking of signing up to a casino or sports betting site will want to know what the payment options are should they win. BetGold has several payment gateways available. Financial transactions can be made using Brazil’s biggest bank – Banco do Brasil – or Spanish financial services company, Caixa. Other options include using the online service AstroPay or the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.
