Evolution has agreed a deal with Rush Street Interactive (RSI) to launch its online slots in Delaware.

RSI, which has an exclusive deal with the Delaware Lottery to provide sports betting and iGaming in the state, will distribute Evolution’s content through its three online casinos – Delaware Park Casino & Raceway, Bally’s Dover Casino Resort and Harrington Raceway & Casino.

Online casino players in Delaware will have access on the BetRivers powered platforms to online slots from Evolution Group’s NetEnt, Red Tiger and Big Time gaming brands.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Evolution Group as we continue to expand our slot game offerings to provide our customers unmatched entertainment experiences. Evolution has an exceptional portfolio of online slots, and we know that our players in Delaware will enjoy what Evolution has to offer now and in the future,” said RSI CEO Richard Schwartz.

Delaware marks the sixth market that Evolution has entered and the company says this latest news further cements its ability to meet the demands of the rapidly expanding U.S. market.

“Going live in Delaware is a great milestone for Evolution. It is our sixth US state and further solidifies our place as the market leader in online gaming. We are excited to partner with Rush Street Interactive, one of the most respected online gaming companies in the US, to bring online games to BetRivers players in Delaware,” added Evolution CEO for North America Jacob Claesson.

Rush Street considering sale with DraftKings a potential buyer

Last week industry sources revealed that RSI is exploring its options including a potential sale and reportedly company representatives have approached potential buyers including DraftKings.

Although Rush Street has yet to comment on the rumors, a spokesperson from DraftKings said to Bloomberg that the company “speaks to a variety of companies regarding various matters in the normal course of business, and it is our general policy not to comment on the specifics of any of those discussions.”

The company’s shares spiked over 12% when the news broke but leveled out at a 4% increase on the day and ended with a market capitalization of $1.4 billion. RSI generated a revenue of $691 million last year, marking a 17% growth year-on-year.
