CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: RSI) ("RSI"), a leading online casino and sports betting company in the United States, today announced the launch in West Virginia of its flagship brand and award-winning online casino platform, BetRivers.com, in West Virginia.
Through RSI’s partnership with Century Casinos, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: CNTY) Mountaineer Park Inc., West Virginians can now play a fun array of online slot games and popular table games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat. BetRivers.com is the only online casino in West Virginia today where customers can play free bingo games for extra chances to win prizes. Similar to other markets where it operates, BetRivers.com plans to consistently add fan favorite casino games to its site in West Virginia to provide players with fresh content and the same robust library of games it is known for in other states.
Customers in the Mountain State also will have access to RSI’s premier and gamified loyalty program, which enables BetRivers’ players to redeem their online loyalty points for the chance to win even more prizes by playing proprietary bonus games such as online scratch cards, wheel spins and bonus bingo.
“We are very pleased to officially launch BetRivers.com in West Virginia and show players why we are the #1 online casino site in neighboring Pennsylvania,” said Richard Schwartz, president of RSI. “BetRivers.com has been successful in developing deep player loyalty due to the focus we place on the online casino player and creating unique and exciting game play experiences for our customers.”
“Earning and retaining player trust is core to the BetRivers approach – be it through our one-time wagering requirements, automated and timely cash-out approvals, low default bet settings, real-time bonusing community chat or other player-centric features incorporated in the BetRivers.com online casino product,” continued Mr. Schwartz. “We look forward to bringing high levels of transparency and convenience to West Virginians for years to come.”
