Indiana’s family-owned French Lick Resort has appointed online gaming and sports betting company Rush Street Interactive as its sports wagering partner for both the resort’s retail and online sportsbook operations.
Launching on September 6, in time for the first weekend of the professional football season, the venue’s in-casino sportsbook aims to become a premier destination in the state to enjoy watching and betting on a wide range of sporting events.
RSI, in association with French Lick Casino, will also launch the online sportsbook, BetRivers.com, later this year in Indiana. All sports and all wagering types available at the in-casino sportsbook will be available at BetRivers.com.
Sports fans will have millions of betting options on thousands of games, locally and around the world, at the touch of their fingertips, with an intuitive customer interface similar to the self-service kiosks on property.
Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, commented: “We are extremely thrilled to open this new sportsbook at the beautiful and historic French Lick Resort, and to bring the same high-quality, in-casino sports betting experiences that our players in other markets have been enjoying, to resort guests and sports fans in Indiana. Being headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, we are particularly proud of our Midwest heritage and the opportunity to expand in the region with these exciting retail and online launches.”
The sports betting lounge is just over 3,000 sq ft and located at the north end of the casino floor, with club chairs and table seating to accommodate approximately 100 guests
It features a pair of state-of-the-art 14 ft long by eight ft high LED video walls that will anchor the sportsbook viewing area, along with 18 additional TV monitors. The sportsbook also includes eight self-serve betting kiosks, and up to three staffed over-the-counter betting windows to accommodate guests.
Bettors can wager on a wide array of sporting events including professional football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, college sports and more. Bets are expected to include, but not be limited to, straight bets, parlays, totals, and in-game betting. Wagers can be placed at the betting counter with a live sportsbook ticket writer during sportsbook hours of operation, or at a sports betting kiosk 24 hours a day.
“We are partnering with Rush Street Interactive to provide our guests in the casino and online with a premier entertainment experience for football season and beyond,” said Chris Leininger, Chief Operating Officer of French Lick Resort Casino. “Rush Street Interactive is a proven leader in sports betting, and we know sports fans across Indiana will be thrilled with our new in-casino and online sportsbooks.”
