Rush Street to launch mobile sportsbooks in Iowa

23 August 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Wild Rose Entertainment is partnering with Rush Street Interactive for mobile sportsbook gaming at its properties in Clinton, Emmetsburg and Jefferson.

RSI will launch its award-winning iGaming platform at Wild Rose casino properties later this year and enter the digital arena in the Tall Corn State with BetRivers.com. This Iowa partnership solidifies RSI’s Midwest plans, which includes sports betting partnerships in its home-state of Illinois and Indiana, as well.

“We are really thrilled to extend our U.S. footprint by bringing our online sportsbook to sports betting enthusiasts in the state of Iowa,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “We are proud of our growing presence in the Midwest and are looking forward to growing the sports betting market here by bringing Iowa sports fans exhilarating new experiences while watching their favorite teams and getting in on the action.”

Each of the three Wild Rose Casinos are individually licensed for sportsbook gaming and all received approval today on their respective contracts with RSI from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. RSI will provide online market access and on-premise player registration until state-wide on-line registration opens on January 1, 2021. Iowa casinos by law can work with two mobile providers for sportsbook gaming. Wild Rose chose RSI after looking at a number of mobile companies based on the quality of its platform, operational strength, and track record of success in other markets. In addition to operating in New Jersey and New York, RSI is the service provider for the No. 1 in-casino and online sportsbooks in Pennsylvania.

“Sports gaming is an exciting new adventure for our fans and players, and we want to offer the most engaging mobile services to complement the casino experience,” said Tom Timmons, President and Chief Operating Officer at Wild Rose. “RSI takes an innovative approach to this business and stands out as a company with top-of-the-line technology for sports fans.”

Gaming enthusiasts will be able to visit any of the three brick and mortar casinos to register their online account with BetRivers.com. Once an account is created, users will be able to simply log into BetRivers.com.com from anywhere in the State and legally place their bets from their computer and mobile devices. Millions of betting options on thousands of games—locally and around the world—will be at bettors’ fingertips.

RSI focuses on the convergence between online gaming and land-based casinos. “It’s truly a two-way street, and a partnership,” added Schwartz. “We have designed our product and operations to focus on how we can enhance cross-promotional opportunities between online and land-based gaming properties.”
