RSI has operated its online casino in West Virginia under the BetRivers brand since April 2021. The platform has grown to capture a share in the low teens of the state’s online casino market per the West Virginia Lottery Commission and RSI internal estimates.
Richard Schwartz, chief executive officer of RSI spoke positively of the change, saying the business is “excited to expand our presence in West Virginia and offer residents more ways to win with the launch of our popular BetRivers sportsbook”.
“Our experience in other markets has validated that online sportsbook players also enjoy the full-services of our online casinos, especially the table games.”
The move comes after RSI posted a $52.3 million net loss in Q1 2022 – although higher spending not reduced revenue drove the result.
