Operator license granted for RSI by AGCO

It has been announced today that United States gaming and betting firm Rush Street Interactive, known as RSI, has been granted a license to operate in Ontario by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, or AGCO for short.

The operator, which owns and operates BetRivers online casino and sportsbook, will enter the Canadian market for the first time in its history on 4th April 2022, when the new online gaming market will go live.

This is a significant milestone for the operator, which has a large following in the United States, showing its commitment to the sports betting and iGaming industry in legalised regulated markets.

BetRivers is an award-winning brand that is known for its sophisticated betting and gaming platform that will bring a new style of gambling to Ontario with unique betting options, quick payouts and unrivalled customer support.

According to reports, Rush Street Interactive is already live in Ontario in the social gaming vertical, in which the operator provides players with the chance to enjoy free to play gaming under the brand Casino4Fun, under its respective Canadian domain.

Additionally, when the operator goes live with its real-money gaming and betting services in Ontario next month, it will use the same proprietary technology platform as RSI’s social gaming platform.

Ontario is one of the hottest online gambling markets at the moment and operators and games providers alike are keen to obtain a license for the province ahead of the market opening.

Previously, betting and gaming had been restricted in the region, but that is set to change at the start of April, whereby operators such as Rush Street Interactive will launch brand new outlets for Canadian players.

Richard Schwartz of Rush Street Interactive commented on the news and outlined the plans to satisfy regulatory requirements ahead of the brand launch:

The receipt of our registration in Ontario is an important milestone that demonstrates our commitment to operating only in legalized markets where we pay local taxes, and we are grateful for the trust of the AGCO.

We are now one step closer to launching the BetRivers real-money online casino and sportsbook in Ontario and bringing our unique betting options, such as our innovative peer-to-peer slot tournaments or same game parlays, fast payouts, and award-winning customer service to the province’s millions of residents.

Our free-to-play social gaming platform has experienced strong traction in Ontario to date, and we look forward to offering those players similarly entertaining and responsible experiences when our real-money offerings come April 4.
