Rush Street Interactive (RSI), using its partnership with Rivers Casino Philadelphia, will link a BetRivers.com online casino to the existing Rivers Casino Pittsburgh online sportsbook. The move will enable players to immediately begin placing online and mobile wagers on a range of slots and table games across the state of Pennsylvania.
The online casino and sportsbook products share the same accounts and wallets for bettors’ convenience, facilitating seamless switching between the sportsbook and casino using phones, tablets and computers.
“We wanted to launch our award-winning online casino platform prior to the Super Bowl,” said Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive, which operates BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com. “Our experience in NJ and PA with PlaySugarHouse.com has validated that online sportsbook players also enjoy the full-services of our casinos, especially the table games.”
BetRivers.com casino debuts with a portfolio of table games including blackjack, roulette and baccarat, as well as a fast-growing slot library currently live with over 60 slot games. More titles will be added as additional game vendors obtain the necessary approvals to launch their game libraries in the Commonwealth.
“We are proud to now offer more betting action and excitement by adding the online casino at BetRivers.com,” said Schwartz. “The unique full service casino on PlaySugarHouse.com in PA, which launched in July using the same platform, has achieved market share of greater than 40% in Q4 of last year, and we expect players will similarly enjoy the BetRivers.com experience.”
He concluded: “Rush Street Interactive has grown market share in Pennsylvania and New Jersey on PlaySugarHouse.com, in large part due to the quality of the user experience and the time we’ve invested listening to what our players want to improve their experience in both the sportsbook and casino and by offering responsive customer service and fast payouts. We are proud to now bring that same first class, award-winning interactive casino service to players at BetRivers.com in Pennsylvania.”
