Casino entertainment company; Century Casinos, has today announced that it has finalised an agreement with online casino operator RSI, otherwise known as Rush Street Interactive, to launch a partnership in the state of West Virginia.
The agreement will see RSI become Century Casinos’ second ‘interactive gaming operator’ in the Mountain State and will utilise a subsidiary master license that it has already obtained with the State of West Virginia.
The online and mobile product is expected to launch following the operator application and approval process with the State of West Virginia.
RSI currently operates two of the leading gaming and betting brands in the United States and this latest agreement will see the new offering launched under the firm’s BetRivers brand name.
According to reports, the online casino and mobile application is expected to go live onwards from April 2021.
This partnership between Century Casinos and Rush Street Interactive is for an initial term of ten years with the view to extend the agreement to a further ten years.
Reportedly, the deal between the two involves minimum guaranteed revenue and a percentage share of net gaming revenue, in which Century Casinos will receive on a monthly basis.
Furthermore, a signing bonus is also expected to be paid upon signing of the contracts.
Following the launch, residents in West Virginia will have access to a new online casino that will bring together a broad range of casino games, including video slots and table games, along with a multi-tiered loyalty program with rewards for players.
President of Rush Street Interactive Richard Schwartz spoke out about the agreement with Century Casinos:
“As RSI continues the collective expansion of our interactive gaming operations into more states, we look forward to earning the same trust and preference of West Virginians that we have earned of players across the country.
In neighboring Pennsylvania, RSI is the clear leader in online casino market share, thanks to our secure and reliable platform, player-first attitude, transparent approach to customer service, large game library, fast payouts and innovative playing experiences.
