Century Casinos has finalised an agreement with Rush Street Interactive to become the company’s second interactive gaming operator partner in West Virginia.
In partnership with the Vici Properties owned and Century Casinos operated Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort, RSI is to take its BetRivers brand live in the Mountain State.
Subject to licensing and regulatory approval by the West Virginia Lottery, RSI intends to commence operations in the second quarter of 2021.

RSI intends to offer West Virginians access to a range of online casino games, including hundreds of the latest slots and table games, as well as a multi-tiered loyalty program.
Players over the age of 21 are now able to sign-up at BetRivers.net free to play casino site to access the RSI platform before the real money site officially launches at BetRivers.com next year.
“As RSI continues the collective expansion of our interactive gaming operations into more states, we look forward to earning the same trust and preference of West Virginians that we have earned of players across the country,” said Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive.
