BetRivers, which is a two-time winner of both the Online Casino Operator of the Year and Customer Service Operator of the Year award for North America from the respected eGaming Review publication, operates an innovative online casino that includes over 350 of the latest slot machines and table games. The BetRivers online casino also offers fun and unique loyalty and bonusing features for qualifying players, while the BetRivers online sportsbook offers sports fans the opportunity to place single-game bets and single-game parlays on numerous leagues worldwide such as the NHL.

Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, said, “We are thrilled to bring millions of Canadian gaming enthusiasts into the expanding BetRivers community and to deliver the same best-in-class products and trusted services that our players elsewhere in the Americas have come to expect and appreciate. By always putting the player experience first – and focusing on earning and retaining player trust, be it through our array of proprietary betting options, fast and easy payouts, or efficient and helpful customer support – we are confident that BetRivers will become Ontario’s preferred online casino and sports betting destination.”

RSI has appointed Ontario native Bruce Caughill, former Chief Legal Officer at the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), as Managing Director, Canada. Mr. Caughill has over two decades of broad, sophisticated experience in Canada’s commercial gaming industry and will lead RSI’s commercial and administrative activities in the country. RSI is committed to contributing to the Canadian job market and economy by hiring local staff as it establishes its presence in Ontario and throughout the country. The Company expects to employ over 100 Canadians by year end across its engineering, IT, marketing, and operations departments to support RSI’s operations globally.

Mr. Caughill said, “RSI has a reputation for excellence, and I look forward to building on this stellar reputation and working with iGaming Ontario and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario in this burgeoning online gaming market. I am especially excited to support a talented team of fellow Ontarians as we aim to operate the best platform and service available in the province.”

Canadian sports broadcasting icon Dan O’Toole has also joined the RSI team in an exclusive brand and content deal. Mr. O’Toole hosts Boomsies!, a weekly podcast about sports and life, in partnership with BetRivers and was featured in a series of television ads that aired in Canada during the Winter Olympics.

RSI is now active with real-money online gaming in three countries – the United States, Canada, and Colombia – and anticipates launching online casino and sports betting in a fourth country, Mexico, in the second quarter of 2022. The Company is the fourth largest operator of online casino and sports betting combined in the United States and is highly regarded in Colombia, where it accounted for nearly 20% of online casino and sports betting handle in the most recent quarter.
