Rivers Casino Des Plaines And RSI Launch Online Sportsbook

Rivers Casino Des Plaines and Rush Street Interactive (RSI) have launched a new BetRivers.com online sportsbook, just in time for the slow restart of sports.

The online sportsbook will be the first place sports fans can ever place a legal online bet in Illinois. Between yesterday’s Premier League making its awaited return and US sports like MLS, NBA and NHL getting ready for a return, sports betters now have a new forum at their fingertips, ahead of the unconventional summer of sport.

aRichard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive stated: “We ‘re excited to make history in bringing the first online sportsbook to sports fans in our home state just in time as American sports are coming  back into action.

BetRivers.com apps can broadcast hundreds of sporting events online, so players can bet while watching the action. In addition, the June 4th executive order signed by Illinois Governor J.B Pritzker immediately allows players to sign up online or via mobile device and start making bets without having to go to casino.

The order was placed in the midst of the global health pandemic allowing BetRivers.com to register its customers from the safety of their homes, something that normally is not allowed by the state of Illinois.

Schwartz added: “While entertainment options are limited as we seek to minimise the spread of the virus, we are focused on BetRivers.com providing sportsbook players with a high-quality on-line product with exciting sports betting options,” Schwartz added.

“We will have great customer service with fast payouts and an overall friendly approach that treats every player with honesty and care.”

As part of the promotional events players from both firms will receive a bonus match up to $250 on their first deposit.
