We are thrilled to bring millions of Ontario gaming enthusiasts into the expanding BetRivers community and to deliver the same best-in-class products and trusted services Rush Street Interactive (RSI) wasted no time making its products available in Canada — its third country — on Monday, launching both online casino and real money online sports betting in Ontario, Canada’s most populous province.
About two-thirds of RSI’s library of more than 350 slot and table games was made available to Ontario customers through its BetRivers brand on Monday, April 4, 2022, the first day of the legal, regulated market for poker rooms, sportsbooks, and real money Ontario online casinos.
BetRivers joined a handful of other online casino operators — including well-known US brands BetMGM, Caesars, and FanDuel, and European operators Coolbet, LeoVegas, and Royal Panda — in launching on Day One. The operator said eligible players aged 19 and older could sign up and begin wagering on its website, BetRivers.ca, and through the BetRivers Casino Ontario App.
“We are thrilled to bring millions of Ontario 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,” said Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI.
