Rush Street Interactive’s sportsbook BetRivers commenced its activities in Maryland on Monday. Bettors across the state were able to deposit funds and place bets during a controlled demonstration that took place on November 21 from 2 pm to 10 pm. BetRivers became fully live with online wagering activities on Wednesday, November 23.
“The much-anticipated launch of online and mobile sports betting in Maryland is here, and just in time for all the NFL and College football action over the Thanksgiving. We are thrilled to give Maryland’s NFL and college football fans an exciting sports betting experience to enjoy all the holiday action at the touch of their fingertips. In addition to football, BetRivers offers them endless entertainment with countless other sports and betting options available for their pleasure, including exciting single game parlays on the NBA and college basketball and bets on the World Cup,” Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, said.
To celebrate the arrival of the BetRivers Online and Mobile Sportsbook in Maryland, RSI is offering a first time deposit offer where bettors will get a second chance bet, up to $500, on their first bet if it loses.
The BetRivers sportsbook features thousands of betting options on all major professional and collegiate leagues, games, and players, including spreads, moneylines, props, futures, same game parlays, and more. The website and app offer integrated betting content and live streaming on a wide variety of sports, numerous deposit and withdrawal methods, automated pay-out approvals for over 80% of requests, and unique bonusing and rewards programs – including the industry’s fastest conversion of bonuses to cash.
“We focus on the player experience and encourage Marylanders to see for themselves why RSI and BetRivers have received numerous recognitions from the industry for the quality of our product and user experience. BetRivers offers an innovative yet simple website and app experience, with more and quicker ways to deposit and withdraw funds, all supported by best-in-class customer service that works hard every day to earn and retain player trust,” Schwartz added.
In August, BetRivers opened its retail sportsbook at Bingo World in Baltimore, which features a lounge area with 32 theater style seats, a generous bar with seating and high tops, 21 hi-def video screens that surround the space and air multiple events concurrently, streaming BetRivers odds boards and 12 sports wagering kiosks to place bets.
“We are grateful for our wonderful local partners at Bingo World and the trust of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission, Governor Hogan and the General Assembly in allowing RSI to bring online sports wagering to Maryland on the first day its legal and for its professional and efficient support while we worked diligently to satisfy all launch requirements,” Schwartz concluded.
