10 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Rush Street Interactive, Inc., a leading online casino and sports betting company in the United States, today announced that it has received its iGaming Operator Registration from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. RSI plans to satisfy all remaining regulatory requirements and launch its award-winning BetRivers Online Casino and Sportsbook in Ontario on 4 April, the first day online gaming will be authorized in the province.

“The receipt of our registration in Ontario is an important milestone that demonstrates our commitment to operating only in legalized markets where we pay local taxes, and we are grateful for the trust of the AGCO,” said Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI. “We are now one step closer to launching the BetRivers real-money online casino and sportsbook in Ontario and bringing our unique betting options, such as our innovative peer-to-peer slot tournaments or same game parlays, fast payouts, and award-winning customer service to the province’s millions of residents. Our free-to-play social gaming platform has experienced strong traction in Ontario to date, and we look forward to offering those players similarly entertaining and responsible experiences when our real-money offerings come April 4.”

RSI is currently live in Ontario with its free-to-play social gaming platform, CASINO4FUN®, which is accessible from and is powered by the same proprietary technology behind RSI’s real-money platform. Upon the launch of the BetRivers real-money online casino and sportsbook in Ontario, Canada will join the United States and Colombia to become the third country where RSI operates real-money online gaming. The Company also has access to the Mexican online casino and sports betting markets through its partnership with media conglomerate Grupo Multimedios, where it expects to launch online casino and sports betting in the second quarter of 2022.
