Century Casinos

Gaming venue owner and operator Century Casinos has confirmed the official launch of igaming offered by its Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in West Virginia.

The casino entertainment firm has announced that its partners Rush Street Interactive, which confirmed the debut itself earlier in the week, and William Hill launched their online casino platforms in West Virginia using the property’s licence.

The West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act, which became law on March 27, 2019, when Governor Jim Justice let the veto window expire, legalises online casino gambling in the region. It provides one igaming license for each of the five casinos in the Mountain State, and three skins per licence. 

Fellow licensees in the Mountain State, alongside the New Cumberland located Mountaineer, are Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races; Mardi Gras Casino & Resort; Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack; and The Greenbrier.

Century’s Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort has agreements with William Hill for two of its skins, with RSI, which debuted its BetRivers brand, occupying the remaining one. 

Pertaining to these agreements, Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort receives a portion of net gaming revenues derived from the online casinos, in addition to a one-time fee.

Following the approval by the West Virginia Lottery, RSI launched its BetRivers.com online casino on April 12, with the William Hill casino following up with launch on April 13.

“We are very pleased to officially launch BetRivers.com in West Virginia and show players why we are the #1 online casino site in neighbouring Pennsylvania,” Richard Schwartz, president of RSI, is previously quoted as stating on the group’s debut in the region.

“BetRivers.com has been successful in developing deep player loyalty due to the focus we place on the online casino player and creating unique and exciting game play experiences for our customers.
