Gaming company Rush Street Interactive (RSI) is set to make history with the launch of its sportsbook at BetRivers.com to the state of Iowa.
This news comes as fans get ready to witness Iowa State make history at their first Fiesta Bowl and watch the top ten nationally ranked Hawkeyes advance through the ‘Big Ten’ men’s basketball schedule.
In line with this, and starting from January 1, 2021, residents over 21 years of age will be allowed to register remotely from anywhere in the state to place their bets via Rush Street Interactive.
“We are thrilled to make history by offering players in the Hawkeye State the opportunity to wager on a broad range of exciting sports betting options from the convenience and comfort of their own homes,” Richard Schwartz, president of RSI, said.
“RSI has earned the trust and preference of players in the Midwest region and across the country by developing a high-performing, secure, reliable online sportsbook and constantly innovating our offerings,” he added.
Schwartz also expressed confidence that sports bettors in the state “will appreciate RSI’s player-first, honest and transparent approach to customer service as well as the safety and convenience afforded by remote-sign up.”
Players can also deposit funds and place their bets on the Hawkeyes Cyclones and their other favorite teams and sporting events using their mobile devices and computers through RSI’s online sportsbook at BetRivers.com.
RSI has joined forces with Wild Rose Entertainment to provide more convenient and “faster, more efficient payouts” to RSI’s players across the state.
“RSI is known for its outstanding reputation as a top-rated online and retail sportsbook operator in neighboring states, which was very important to us when choosing a sports betting partner,” Rick Gilson, Wild Rose corporate internal auditor, said.
“RSI’s phenomenal online success and expertise was the deciding factor, 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 BetRivers.com to bring online gaming to Iowans,” he added.
