It has been announced today that RSI – Rush Street Interactive – has received RG Check iGaming Accreditation from the RGC – Responsible Gambling Council, becoming the first casino and betting firm to do so.
The gambling operator currently operates BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse brands for which it has received the accreditation, showing that the sites meet or exceed requirements for responsible gaming regulations in active jurisdictions.
The RG Check iGaming Accreditation is valid for a period of three years and is awarded by independent responsible gaming specialists, showing the firms responsibility and commitment to its active markets and customers.
March is currently Problem Gambling Awareness Month and this recognition reaffirms the company’s focus and vision for the present and future gambling activities within the sports betting and iGaming niches.
Rush Street Interactive is a leading operator within the iGaming space and this accreditation is inline with the firms strategy for corporate social responsibility.
As part of the strategy, the operator ensures that it provides a series of tools and resources that promote not only fair and fun gaming, but safe experiences for both customers and staff.
According to reports, the achievement also represents the commitment of transparency and duty of care, along with safe-guarding players to not only create a culture of responsible gaming, but an environment that is sustainable.
Additionally, with the company soon to go live in the Canadian province of Ontario, this recognition comes at a great time for showing that the operator is keen to minimise gambling harms and allow players to manage risk.
Furthermore, the accreditation comes two years ahead of the schedule in which operators in Ontario are required to attain.
Richard Schwartz of RSI commented on the RG Check Accreditation:
Receiving RG Check Accreditation is a testament to our commitment and execution of RSI’s corporate social responsibility strategy, which includes the continued implementation of the Company’s responsible gaming initiatives.
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.
Shelley White of the Responsible Gambling Council also shared comments on the news:
RG Check is a clear demonstration that an operator prioritizes and embeds responsible gambling into the core of its operations. RGC commends BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com for achieving RG Check Accreditation.
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 minimization efforts.
