Milestones: 20 Years of River Belle
For 20 years, River Belle has welcomed players aboard its riverboat-themed online casino. The quality games and services that players have come to expect since 1997 have not tarnished with time – like a good bourbon, they are getting better and better.
River Belle’s 20th birthday is a real casino milestone. It was among the first few true online casinos to launch in the first wave of the late 90s internet craze. While many have since come and gone, this grand old dame has continued to wend her way to winning destinations in which the entertainment never stops, and the rewards are in abundance.
Inspired by Tradition
The casino whose coming of age we celebrate was inspired by the glorious old paddlewheel river boats so long associated with the mighty Mississippi River. Those old boats initially served the very practical function of transporting passengers and goods, as railways had not yet connected towns along the waterways.
Once the railway did arrive, the riverboats began to be used for pleasure cruises during which passengers could play Slots or Card Games, drink, and dance to live music. The fun-loving attitude and warm hospitality of the Deep South was alive and well on those boats, and it is that same attitude and hospitality that is shown at River Belle online casino.

A Terrific Timeline
Within a couple of years of River Belle’s launch in 1997, it already had a list of accolades in the form of Gambling.com awards. 2 Years after the casino’s launch, the site was redesigned to better express the riverboat theme, and to make it easier for players to find their way around the casino.
The casino underwent another make-over in 2001, where its design took on elements of luxury, glamour, and that good old Southern magic. That, of course, was not the end of the journey.
In 2004, River Belle opened its Online Poker room, giving card players a digital salon privé in which they could enjoy playing their favourite game. In 2007, the casino celebrated its 10th birthday with another redesign; this time to make the experience even more sleek and sophisticated while maximising functionality.
The sun has not set on River Belle’s awe-inspiring journey. Players still stream toward her cheerful lights for top quality gaming. Long may it last.
