Supplier debuts games with high-profile online operator in Colombia – with US social casino to follow
Premium slots and table games provider Habanero has announced an agreement with Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the first United States-based gaming operator to launch a legal and regulated online sportsbook on a national basis in Latin America and a market leader in online casino and sports betting in the United States.
The Chicago-based company is known among its industry peers as the preeminent operator in the US online gaming market, having won the EGR North America “Mobile Operator of the Year” Award for 2019 as well as “American Operator of the Year” and “Casino Operator of the Year” at the 2019 American Gambling Awards.
Under the agreement, more than 50 titles from Habanero’s portfolio of engaging slots and table games have been launched on Rush Street Interactive’s RushBet.co, as well as taking its full portfolio of 170 games live with the group’s US-based social casinos in the near future.
The deal sees the supplier’s immersive gaming suite reaching a US audience for the first time, in addition to extending its LatAm reach following a string of major continental partnerships.
