The accreditation means that Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com sites have been approved by the RGC, where a panel of independent responsible gaming specialists review responsible regulatory requirements.

The operator announced the accreditation at the end of Problem Gambling Awareness Month, running throughout March.

“RG Check is a clear demonstration that an operator prioritises and embeds responsible gambling into the core of its operations. RGC commends BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com for achieving RG Check Accreditation,” Shelley White, CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council said.

“This achievement represents RSI’s commitment to transparency, player safeguards, duty of care and continuous improvement, as well as contributes to creating a culture of responsible gambling and sustainable play.

“RG Check is an invaluable tool for managing risk and increasing the effectiveness of RG programming. RGC is proud to provide continuous support to RSI’s harm minimisation efforts.”

Rush Street Interactive is currently live in 13 states across Columbia and the US. So far in 2022, the operator has launched online sportsbooks in New York and Louisiana with plans to go live 4 April in Ontario, Canada.

“Receiving RG Check Accreditation is a testament to our commitment and the execution of RSI’s corporate social responsibility strategy, which includes the continued implementation of the company’s responsible gaming initiatives,” said Richard Schwartz, chief executive officer of RSI.

“We want to ensure our valued customers and employees are equipped with the tools and resources necessary to help ensure a culture of safe, fair and fun gaming experiences.”
