BetRivers First to Launch Live Dealer Games in West Virginia


West Virginia Evolution Gaming Live Dealers

  • Rush Street announced that Evolution Gaming will power BetRivers’ online casino in West Virginia.
  • BetRivers is the first West Virginia gambling operator to offer Live Dealer Games.
  • BetRivers plans to launch sports betting and online casino products in Mexico during Q2 2022.

BetRivers recently announced that it will be the first operator to offer Live Dealer Casino in West Virginia. The content, which will be available via BetRivers’ website and Android App, is powered by Evolution Gaming.

Said Richard Schwartz, chief executive officer of RSI:

“We are confident that the Evolution-hosted Live Dealer Casino will prove very popular with our players here as the live dealer game is the closest you can get online to playing in a land-based casino. Many players prefer live dealer options because they watch it happen live, which gives them a higher level of trust in the outcome. We’re excited to now offer BetRivers players the chance to virtually sit and play on Evolution’s world-renowned live tables.”

A Leading Provider of Online Casino Games

Live Dealer Games are a new but popular sector of the online casino industry. Evolution Gaming is a B2B online casino solution for gaming operators. It provides content for more than 500 online casinos and several brick-and-mortar casinos. Most recently, it announced a content deal with Soaring Eagle Gaming, a venture owned by Michigan’s Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe.

With the Evolution deal, a mix of very popular live table games like low and high-stakes Blackjack games, including side bets such as 21+3, Lightning Roulette, Baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Three Card Poker will be debuting via the BetRivers site and app.

Rush Street’s Expansion Efforts

Rush Street only recently launched in West Virginia. However, despite being a late-comer in the Mountain State gambling market, it has captured a good share of the WV gambling pie. With the arrival of Evolution’s world-renowned titles, RSI’s presence is expected to grow even further.

RSI has been working double-time to boost its expansion efforts. It now offers its services to a total of 13 U.S. states as well as Canada and Colombia. Earlier this week, it added an online sportsbook service to its online casino in West Virginia. It has plans to launch sports betting and online casino in Mexico during the second quarter of the year.
