BetRivers Online Casino Review

BetRivers Sportsbook and Casino

BetRivers is the online gambling brand of the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh. In June 2019, parent company Rush Street Gaming announced it would be changing the name of the SugarHouse Casino to Rivers Casino Philadelphia. Given the name change of SugarHouse Casino, it’s possible both brands could ultimately use the BetRivers brand name.

For right now, The BetRivers online presence in PA consists of the BetRivers online sportsbook that just launched in late June of 2019. As with the online sportsbook at PlaySugarHouse BetRivers uses Kambi as their sports betting technical partner.

Once BetRivers opens, most players of legal age will be able to play in the online casino. Pennsylvania law requires that players must be 21 years or age or older in order to gamble online. Players must be prepared to submit documentation which verifies their identity.

The other main criteria to play on BetRivers will be players must be physically located in the state at the time of play. Ironically, the one place where PA players will not be able to play online is when they are located physically within a casino. Players using a computer will be required to install a browser plugin that will verify their location. Players using a mobile phone will also use geolocation tools to ensure that you are physically located in the state at the time of play.

Get your BetRivers PA casino bonus

BetRivers players who make a first deposit are expected to receive a generous bonus. Given the PlaySugarHouse bonus, the BetRivers bonus is likely to be a 100% up to $250 match on a first deposit on a minimum deposit of $10. You need to deposit a maximum of $250 to receive the entire bonus.

Once you have deposited for the bonus, it is quite simple to complete the terms. Gamblers are only required to wager the bonus 1x, meaning if you have a $250 bonus, you will only need to put $250 at risk. This is an excellent sign-up bonus offer that may only be available for a limited time. The bonus may be wagered either in the BetRivers sportsbook or casino.

After making a deposit of at least $10, the bonus will be credited within 48 hours. Players will then have 30 to meet the requirements while placing bets in the BetRivers sportsbook, slots, video poker or live dealer games.

BetRivers iRush Rewards is a consistent winner

While the BetRivers sign-up bonus is attractive to new players, you might need a reason to stay. Enter the iRush Rewards Program, which will allow you to earn ongoing rewards the more you play.

Your perks are based on the Loyalty Level which is determined by points earned over the previous 61 days. The most recent 30 days are weighted more heavily while points earned from day 31-60 are averaged and removed from a players Loyalty status level.

Points are earned based on the combination bet size. The standard rate is 1 point per $10 wagered. If you had up to 10 combinations to your bet — as in the case of a sportsbet — you may earn a point for as little as $1 in wagers.

The following perks will be available to BetRivers players, depending on VIP status level in the iRush Rewards program.

BetRivers Casino mobile

BetRivers is available directly from a web browser, but players can also play on BetRivers through the free mobile app. Players can find the app at the BetRivers website once the casino and sportsbook go live. Given Google Play rules, Android users will need to download the app directly from the BetRivers website.

Players hoping to play on an iOS device will need to wait even longer. The iOS store plans on making it more difficult for companies to offer real money gambling apps in the App Store. Casinos will need to go through extra steps in order to bring the online casino to Apple users.

BetRivers online poker room

BetRivers is not expected to offer an online poker room, at least right away. But the SugarHouse Casino did apply for and receive a license to offer online poker. This could mean that BetRivers brand could eventually offer an online poker room.

Given the initial branding of a BetRivers casino and sportsbook, we don’t expect online poker to be a priority for the casino. But the $3 million license makes it difficult to ignore for too long. It should be noted that the SugarHouse Casino does not currently offer an online poker room in neighboring New Jersey.
