Blackjack players on BetRivers Casino or PlaySugarhouse Casino in Pennsylvania, get ready for some VIP treatment. Exclusive new BetRivers live dealer blackjack studios offers customers priority access to spots in the games going forward.
Users of the app in PA will now get to mingle with PlaySugarhouse Casino users in New Jersey as they place their bets. Both Rush Street Interactive (RSI) brands have answered customers’ calls for an improved experience.
Changes for BetRivers live dealer blackjack games
When players on the BetRivers app access the live dealer blackjack tables in PA, they’re likely to notice some aesthetic changes. Instead of seeing branding for the company that produces the games, Evolution Gaming, they will see branding for BetRivers and PlaySugarhouse.
Evolution is still running these games, so there won’t be much if any change in function. The branding is just a signal that this studio is for RSI customers only. Currently, only RSI customers in NJ and PA have access to the studio.
This change is about much more than just keeping BetRivers’ logo in front of your face, though. Exclusivity is a big benefit. Evolution Gaming provides live dealer products for several online casino operators besides RSI.
In PA, those brands include BetMGM Casino, Borgata Casino, and PlayLive! Casino. As there are obviously only so many seats at each gaming table, that leads to high demand for spots in the games. This move equalizes the supply in a way by providing Rush Street customers their own tables.
Improved access to live dealer tables for PA players
Prior to this change, RSI users effectively had to “share” the Evolution studios with players from other casino brands. The investment in exclusive studios seems a result of customers expressing their dismay about that.
Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, commented in a press release:
“Since we initially launched our live dealer games with Evolution in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we’ve had requests from customers to offer exclusive tables with seats only available to players loyal to our brands. Now our players will have their own dedicated seats where they are able to chat and interact with not only our dealers but also other players in our online community, who can interact in real-time, adding a fun social aspect to the betting experience as if they were at a land-based casino.”
The new dual studios will each feature three blackjack tables. At this time, it isn’t clear whether these exclusive studios will offer other games in the future. Even on this level, though, there are some perks.
If you have a friend in NJ who you’d like to play alongside, for instance, the two of you are more likely to get in a game together now. As any experienced blackjack player knows, games go more smoothly when other players at the table have experience playing blackjack. The situation hasn’t improved for just Rush Street players, either.
More seats at the live dealer tables for everyone
By “removing” BetRivers and PlaySugarhouse users from the pool of players in the Evolution studios, the supply improves for everyone. All PA online casino players should find it a bit easier to get a seat at a blackjack table moving forward.
The same thing applies to RSI customers who play with other brands themselves. There are plenty of options in the Keystone State when it comes to live dealer blackjack. PA operators that offer such games besides the aforementioned brands include:
- Caesars Casino
- DraftKings Casino
- FanDuel Casino
- Hollywood Casino
- Parx Casino
- Stars Casino
- Unibet Casino
Players who have yet to try out BetRivers or PlaySugarhouse online casinos can take advantage of new customer bonuses like a 100% match of your first deposit up to $250. If blackjack is your game, there’s never been a better time to take a seat.
