Joy of joys!
Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, the BetRivers online casino launched and joined the Rivers Casino Pittsburgh online sportsbook.
Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive, explains the timing of the online casino’s launch:
“We wanted to launch our award-winning online casino platform prior to the Super Bowl. 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.”
With this addition, PA now has eight online sportsbooks and eight online casinos. Also last week, BetAmerica quietly launched its online casino, with the full launch on the same day as BetRivers’.
The marked growth of the Rivers brand
Operating under Rivers Casino Philadelphia‘s gaming license, the new online casino joins the PlaySugarHouse casino and sportsbook brands. The BetRivers online casino is a “skin” of PlaySugarHouse.
What does this mean? Don’t expect many differences in this new skin, as it is essentially the same product.
Rush Street Interactive is the platform provider for all the Rivers online brands. Rush Street also operates PlaySugarHouse Sportsbook in New Jersey. As a reminder, SugarHouse was Rivers Philadelphia before the recent rebranding.
Getting access to the BetRivers online casino games
It’s great news if you are a player on the BetRivers Sportsbook app. You can immediately start playing casino games online in PA.
Technically, there are only a few table games; for instance, two versions of blackjack, a few roulette games and baccarat.
However, the slot library already has more than 60 titles, like Double Ruby and Atomic Meltdown from Everi. There are plans to add more games, but the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) needs to give the necessary approval.
