With its collaboration with JP McGill’s Hotel & Casino, located in Cripple Creek, Rush Street Interactive was to launch its online sportsbook BetRivers.com on Friday in Colorado. The website will give players the opportunity to be among the first sport fans ever to put a legal bet in the Centennial State.
BetRivers.com can make wagers on a variety of currently played U.S. and world sports as well as potential bets on all major U.S. sports like NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB.
Friday’s launch catalogue will include tennis, soccer, golf, plus country-specific globe-wide specialties such as Korean baseball, Taiwanese basketball, Russian ice hockey, English darts, and Ukrainian and Russian table tennis fans.
The firm said the placement of bets on those games and activities would be open to BetRivers.com players in Colorado as soon as all other sports leagues restart.
The sportsbook will also make bets on esport events such as eNascar, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike to its teams. Additionally, BetRivers will be regular live streaming activities to give players the ability to watch activities while betting.
Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive said: “We are thrilled to debut our BetRivers.com brand in Colorado and offer sports bettors our unique and compelling player experience that our customers in other states already enjoy.
“We know sports bettors throughout the state of Colorado are really going to appreciate the ease and convenience of being able to place wagers online from the comfort of their homes. We are eager for Colorado players to give our BetRivers.com web/mobile site a try to see why so many players in other states have chosen to bet with our sportsbook.”
Larry Hill, CEO of JP McGill’s Hotel and Casino, commented: “Rush Street Interactive has built an outstanding reputation with its top rated online and retail sportsbooks in other states, which was very important to us when choosing them as our partner. That success and expertise is critical and when you combine that with their exceptional customer service and commitment to player integrity and transparency, it was the smart decision to partner with them in launching BetRivers.com in Colorado.”
