Rush Street Interactive (RSI) and Rivers Casino Des Plaines announed the launch of the first legal online and mobile sportsbook platforms in Illinois on June 18.
Kambi-powered BetRivers.com went live at 10:00 a.m. CT on June 18. It allows players of legal age (over 21 years old) in the state to bet on a wide range of sports through a desktop computer or mobile device.
The brick-and-mortar BetRivers sportsbook located at Rivers Casino Des Plaines was also the first retail property to take the first legal sports bets in the state when Illinois opened its regulated market on March 9 this year.
“We are 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,” Richard Schwartz, RSI president, said.
