The long road to regulated sports betting in Ohio has finally produced a payoff. January 1, 2023 will be the official launch date for mobile, online and retail sports betting statewide. There are a number of companies set to launch on ‘opening day’ including BetRivers Sportsbook, owned and operated by Chicago based Rush Street Interactive (RSI). RSI announced the launch of BetRivers Sportsbook in Ohio via a press release.

Here’s the blurb from the RSI press release announcing their Ohio debut:

 Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: RSI) (“RSI”), a leading online sports betting and casino company in the United States, plans to go live for online and mobile wagering in Ohio with its award-winning sportsbook at BetRivers.com, as soon as legalized sports betting starts on January 1, 2023. Starting New Year’s Day, sports fans across the Buckeye State aged 21 and over can place bets quickly and securely from the BetRivers app and website.

The BetRivers online sportsbook features thousands of betting options and the opportunity to wager on numerous leagues across the globe, including all major U.S. collegiate and professional leagues like the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL.  BetRivers is one of the only operators offering multi-game same game parlays, where players can combine same game parlays from numerous sporting events to build perfect jackpot tickets. Other core features of the BetRivers online platform include live streaming on a wide variety of sports from around the world, its fun and unique loyalty and bonusing features for qualifying players, intuitive yet innovative user interface, strong transactional performance and speed for in-play and pre-game bets, and automated withdrawal approvals. These features are all supported by a professional, friendly and trustworthy customer service that has been named the best in the industry at the EGR North America Awards.

Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, is definitely enthused about the Ohio launch:

“We are really excited to offer Ohio’s nearly 12 million residents betting action on the upcoming college bowls and the NFL’s big game, and expect our BetRivers sportsbook to be very popular as bettors come to appreciate and trust our high-quality and innovative product that we are known for in other states. In addition to football, BetRivers offers our customers endless entertainment with countless other sports and betting options available for their pleasure, including an exciting range of bets on NBA and NCAA basketball.”

“At RSI we are constantly striving to provide a more trusted betting experience by emphasizing usability, responsibility, and transparency. Our mission is to always put the player experience first – focusing on earning and retaining player trust through our array of proprietary betting options, fast and easy payouts, and best-in-class customer service. We can’t wait for Ohioans to experience all that BetRivers offers.”

And what would a sportsbook launch be without some type of promotional bonus?

To celebrate the arrival of the BetRivers Sportsbook in Ohio, BetRivers will be offering a suite of ‘Daily House Specials’ where bettors can expect a rotating lineup of value on the Bengals playoff push, the Cavaliers rise in the Eastern Conference, and all Ohio hometown favorites. Players can login daily for new ‘Props & Boosted Odds Specials’ on the biggest stars & storylines in the NFL, NBA and more.

BetRivers is offering those who sign-up a ‘$500 Second-Chance Bet Promotion.’ New players can claim a second-chance bet worth up to $500 when they use the bonus code.

BetRivers also has a unique loyalty program with a Bonus Bank, Bonus Store and a ‘Refer a Friend’ program where customers who refer a friend to sign-up and bet will receive a scratch card with a chance of winning from $50 to $500.

Ohio will make it fourteen states for RSI mobile and/or retail sports betting joining Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, West Virginia, Arizona and Louisiana. They’re also live in Ontario.
