Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the digital and land-based sports wagering and gaming supplier of PlaySugarHouse.com, has deployed what it cited as a “…simple and clean solution that allows patrons for the first time to wager using their iOS devices in Pennsylvania”.
Once players registers on their mobile devices at PlaySugarHouse.com, they will be directed to download the GeoGuard Location Validator from the Apple app store that will enable RSI to confirm that they are located within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania when they access PlaySugarHouse.com through their mobile browsers, such as Safari or Google Chrome.
“As we launch our casino site today, we are excited to offer Apple users a way to enjoy the innovative experiences we offer by betting from their mobile devices in Pennsylvania,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “We’re pleased that players with Apple mobile devices will be able to use the mobile web to play with PlaySugarHouse.com.”
Apple users who log into their PlaySugarHouse.com account will be prompted to install the GeoGuard app. By clicking “Install” the straight-forward and easy process will begin, bringing users directly to the Apple App Store. They will then be directed to download the GeoGuard app.
Once downloaded, users open GeoGuard, and will then be prompted to complete the set up with just two more quick steps to follow. Players must agree to always allow the app to access their location while betting online, and must allow the application to send notifications in order for it to work properly.
On successful completion, players can navigate back to PlaySugarHouse.com on their browsers and begin placing bets directly from their mobile browsers. Importantly, once a player completes the process once, they never have to return to the GeoGuard app but instead can place mobile bets directly at PlaySugarHouse.com.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer loyal users with Apple devices, such as iPhones, a way to get online and begin playing on our award-winning platform,” added Schwartz.
News of the app solution follows the official launch earlier this week of Rush Street Interactive’s Rivers Sportsbook lounge at New York State’s Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady. Operated in collaboration with sportsbook provider Kambi, the luxury lounge makes betting available on a wide array of sporting events including professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, college sports and more.
