Rush Street Interactive has enhanced its position across the US after being announced as the Delaware State Lottery’s chosen online gaming vendor.
Through the move, RSI will offer ‘state-of-the-art’ online casino gaming in the First State for an initial term of five years. Pending regulatory approval, the initial contract is renewable for added single year terms for an additional five years.
“We are honoured to be selected by the Delaware State Lottery selection committee to provide online gaming operations in the First State,” stated Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI.
“This partnership is yet another significant milestone for RSI, as the confidence of a state-backed organisation, such as the Delaware Lottery, further validates the trust that lottery officials have in our award-winning online platform and customer service.
“Building on our proven track record of success in the tri-state area of Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where RSI was an early entrant in the first online market in the US, we are honoured to collaborate with the Delaware Lottery team and the state’s three casinos to offer consumers who are geo-located in Delaware with safe, convenient, and innovative online gaming experiences.”
The Mid-Atlantic state was the first US state to implement intrastate online casino gaming, offering poker, slots, bingo and more after the General Assembly passed the Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act in June 2012.
“Rush Street Interactive has established itself as a leading innovator in the industry, and is a respected igaming and sports betting company,” added Helene Keeley, Director of the Delaware Lottery.
“We are impressed not only with RSI’s successes in other jurisdictions, including neighbouring New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but also its strong commitment to responsible gambling practices.”
This advancement builds on the company’s established presence in Delaware, which is one of 15 US states Rush Street is active in. Elsewhere in North America, RSI is live in Canadian provinces Ontario and Colombia as well as Mexico.
“We look forward to working with the well-respected RSI team,” Keeley continued. “We reviewed proposed bids from other online gaming companies and suppliers, and the combination of experience and commitment to quality products, customer service, and responsible gaming is why we selected RSI.
“We’re delighted to begin this partnership and have no doubt that Delawareans and the customers of Delaware’s three casinos will be thrilled with RSI’s exciting library of offerings and industry-leading customer service.”
RSI recently formed a partnership with Play’n GO, enhancing the supplier’s position in the US by adding its games to the former’s BetRivers casino platform in Michigan and New Jersey.
Schwartz concluded: “RSI continues to demonstrate itself as a leader in the industry as more and more states across the country welcome online gaming. With our proven and trusted operations, in-house technology, and platform, we are proud to deliver robust value and results to forward-thinking government entities or businesses.
“RSI is devoted to making thoughtful strides in our expansion and in the successful execution of our approach to delivering best-in-class products and services to our customers.”
