Rikstoto is the first online betting site to open its doors in Norway. For some time now, the bookmaker has managed to improve its performance, thanks to the dynamism and the influx of punters. The brand also owes its reputation to its high level of quality. This is reflected in its product ranges, the extreme diversity of its odds and betting options, but above all the knowledge gained from customers. Despite its setbacks, it will later be discovered that Rikstoto has many strengths to offer.
Rikstoto confirms its legitimacy, holding a national license issued by the Norwegian Gaming Authority. In addition, the platform is regulated by the Norwegian Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs. In order to ensure its reliability, the website has implemented internal control systems that comply with the legislation. The security of customers’ personal and financial data is based on the use of the latest SSL encryption system.

In addition to the ability to place bets and view account history, the player will also be able to take advantage of race information, analysis tools and betting tips.

The betting and gaming offer
At first glance, Rikstoto’s platform shows a strong predominance on horse racing. Logically, it is the only bookmaker in Norway that has been licensed to do so. The sections offered on the website do not only contain bets on local races. Players also have the opportunity to make predictions on events from international regions. They will have the choice of placing their bets on the website, via a mobile app or at a branch office. The website provides relevant details on all types of horse racing, including mounted trotting, harnessing, galloping and show jumping. In addition, there are several varieties of bets with a multitude of options. Apart from single and combined bets, there are bets with different selections (V4, V5, V65, V75, V86…). It is up to the player to decide on the betting options.
Although Rikstoto has placed a special emphasis on horse racing, its activities in lottery games should not be ignored. In this respect, the company is the official online provider in Norway. The popular Viking Lotto is becoming available to players from European countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Estonia and Lithuania. In addition, some sources claim that there is a sports betting and casino section. This probably requires a thorough examination of the site.
