Design Works Gaming has expanded its partnership with Rush Street Interactive into a second US state, with players in Michigan set to access the igaming developer’s suite via the BetRivers brand.

Among the titles to be included as part of the integration are the Double Fancy 7s, 10X Fortune and Break the Bounty LuckyTap slot games that have been integrated via the Light & Wonder OpenGaming platform. Additional titles will be rolled out across the coming weeks and months.

Richard Schwartz, Rush Street Interactive Chief Executive Officer, said: “Since we first launched in Michigan, our customers have come to expect a world-class online casino experience that provides access to the most exciting games in the market through our BetRivers platform. 

“We are excited to expand our partnership with DWG and to further enhance our offering to BetRivers players in the market.”   

This comes just a handful of months after DWG debuted its first slot titles via BetRivers in New Jersey, an agreement that is said to have superseded expectations. 

Troy Zurawski, DWG CEO, added: “Since we first launched with RSI earlier this year, performance has far exceeded our expectations. 

“RSI knows their player base inside and out and together we’ve been able to provide casino games we know are going to resonate with their customers keeping them engaged and entertained. We’re excited to bring this same strategic content to Michigan!”

Earlier this month, Rush Street Interactive stated that it is “on track” towards profitability following improvements in the first quarter of 2023 in adjusted EBITDA and net loss.

CEO Richard Schwartz defined the quarter’s results as “excellent” as the company saw its revenues rise across several areas during the period, including significant growth in Latin America.
