BetRivers will operate in the state in partnership with Century Casinos’ Mountaineer Park.
This comes after RSI inked a deal with the facility to launch its online casino product in the state last year.
West Virginians will now be able to play a variety of online casino games via the BetRivers casino.
Customers will also have access to RSI’s loyalty program which allows customers to redeem online loyalty points for a chance to win other prizes such as wheel spins, bingo bonuses, and online scratch cards.
Richard Schwartz, president of RSI said: “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. 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. We look forward to bringing high levels of transparency and convenience to West Virginians for years to come.”
In other states, RSI operates its BetRivers casino brand in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
Rush Street also offers sports betting under the brand in several states including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Virginia, and Indiana.
What else is RSI up to?
In addition to launching its online sportsbook and casino brand in several US states, RSI went public on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) earlier this year.
On 30 December, the Special Purpose Acquisition Company dMY Technology Group completed its combination with RSI, paving the way for RSI to trade its shares on the NYSE.
The deal was first announced in July 2020 and dMY shareholders approved the deal at a shareholder meeting held on 29 December.
