After rolling out a partnership with Little River Casino Resort, Sportsbook and online gaming supplier and operator Rush Street Interactive have unveiled entry into Michigan.
As a service provider for its in-casino retail sportsbook, the partnership with Ottawa Indians’ Little River Band also provides RSI with access to the Michigan online market, with plans to launch co-branded online sports betting and online casino across the state as soon as regulations permit.
Although Little River Casino Resort plans to open its retail sportsbook during the third quarter of this year, online wagering will be introduced later in Michigan, on a timeline set by regulators. And, when online wagering starts, residents should sign up now to be informed immediately.
Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive said: “The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians has built an outstanding reputation and we are thrilled they have chosen RSI to be a part of that tradition.
“Being only a lakeshore away in Chicago, the Rush Street Interactive team views this partnership as an opportunity to help bring a property-wide lift to Little Rivers Casino Resort, from slots to tables to restaurants, thanks to the tremendous and growing popularity of sports wagering.”
Little River Casino Resort features around 1,350 slot machines, 26 table games featuring various card games, craps and interactive stadium roulette, 292 hotel rooms, 95 space RV park, three restaurants, three bars, a 1600 seat event centre, 4 conference rooms, an off-site golf course, and more.
Entering the Wolverine State secures additional US growth for RSI, with the company boasting a presence in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana , Illinois and New York.
Andrew Gentile, General Manager of Little River Casino Resort noted: “The successful track record of Rush Street Interactive as a provider of in-casino sportsbooks in Pennsylvania, New York and Illinois, was very significant to us when we chose them as our partner.
“Rush Street’s ability to provide a road map of how they’ve enabled other land-based casinos to operate market-leading sportsbooks kept us from having to reinvent the wheel.”
Thrilled to announce our partnership with @littleriverfun in Michigan. Plans for a retail sportsbook are well underway with online casino and online sportsbook to follow when permitted by regulators.https://t.co/KaXInOiHwG#sportsbook #onlinecasino #onlinesportsbook
