BetRivers Expands Into West Virginia

Following in the footsteps of the rapidly expanding mobile sportsbook market, mobile apps for casino gambling online are gaining traction in a smaller market across the US.

There are 15 states offering sports betting online through mobile sportsbook apps at the present time with more on the way. The American online casino market is limited to just five states right now. This includes Delaware casinos, Michigan casinos, New Jersey casinos, Pennsylvania casinos, and West Virginia casinos.

One of the bigger players in the mobile casino market is BetRivers. With the recent launch of this casino gambling app in West Virginia, Rush Street Interactive’s online casino platform is available in four of five states with Delaware being the only exception.

Rush Street formed a partnership with Mountaineer Park last December in order to gain access to the West Virginia market with BetRivers. Mountaineer Park is owned and operated by Century Casinos.

Bingo fans can turn to with free bingo contests standing out as a major point of difference between the other two mobile casino operators in the Mountaineer State. Betly sports wagering is another WV brand to consider.

BetRivers also offers a wide selection of casino table games. This has helped Rush Street Interactive become the clear market leader in Pennsylvania. It will look to do the same in West Virginia against a pair of formidable competitors.

DraftKings mobile casino app was the first online casino to launch in West Virginia. Through an in-state partnership with Hollywood Casino in Charleston, this launch took place in July of last year.

One month later, BetMGM rolled out its mobile casino app in the state through a partnership with Greenbrier Casino.

NetEnt as part of Evolution Gaming is expected to enter West Virginia with its mobile casino. However, there is no clear timeline as to when this launch will take place.

BetRivers also offers its mobile sportsbook app in 10 different states across the country. Where legal, sports bettors can earn up to $250 in a matching bonus on their initial deposit. There is also a customer loyalty program tied to iRush Rewards.

This program offers two types of points for online betting activity. The first type is Loyalty Level Points and the other is Bonus Store Points. Players can increase their loyalty level though the use of the first type of points offered. Bonus Store Points can be used to purchase various rewards.

The iRush Rewards program offers 11 different tiers from 1 all the way to Elite. Different perks such as special offers, VIP promotions and exclusive VIP events kick in at different levels. Entry into the program starts at 40 points. Level 10 requires 20000 points and the Elite Level is by invitation only.

This rewards program maintains the current point level for 30 days from the time they are earned. New activity can replace any points they may have expired after this timeframe.

BetRivers is tied to Rivers Casino Philadelphia and Pittsburgh’s River Casino in Pennsylvania. Both of those casinos are owned and operated by Rush Street Gaming. BetRivers operates under the Sugarhouse brand in New Jersey as part of Rush Street Interactive.
