Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has confirmed that it will launch its igaming platform at Wild Rose casino properties later this year and enter the digital arena in the Tall Corn State with BetRivers.com. The Iowa partnership solidifies RSI’s Midwest plans, which include sports betting partnerships in its home-state of Illinois and Indiana.
Each of the three Wild Rose Casinos are individually licensed for sportsbook gaming and all have received approval on their respective contracts with RSI from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. RSI will provide online market access and on-premise player registration until state-wide online registration opens on January 1, 2021. Iowa casinos by law can work with two mobile providers for sportsbook gaming.
“We are really thrilled to extend our US footprint by bringing our online sportsbook to sports betting enthusiasts in the state of Iowa,” said RSI President Richard Schwartz. “We are proud of our growing presence in the Midwest and are looking forward to growing the sports betting market here by bringing Iowa sports fans exhilarating new experiences while watching their favorite teams and getting in on the action.”
“Sports gaming is an exciting new adventure for our fans and players, and we want to offer the most engaging mobile services to complement the casino experience,” said Tom Timmons, President and Chief Operating Officer at Wild Rose. “RSI takes an innovative approach to this business and stands out as a company with top-of-the-line technology for sports fans.”
