BetRivers is a pretty well-rounded sportsbook site with a number of great features for players to enjoy. Here are our top three favorite things about BetRivers:
While BetRivers is one of the best online sportsbooks available in WV, there’s always room for improvement. Here are a few ways we think the site could be even better.
BetRivers has a good number of online sports betting options for players in West Virginia. You’ll find moneylines, spreads, totals, props, parlays and teasers, among others. Players can bet on WV college basketball and football games as well as show support for popular teams across the US. You can place pregame and in game bets at the site, as well as futures for long-term bets.
BetRivers is most known for its Jackpot Parlay Tool, which allows players to easily string together a parlay using a method similar to that used for state lottery games. The tool will choose eight bets at random that you can then place quickly to try your luck, or edit for more control.
BetRivers offers all the biggest sports alongside a couple of niche choices that players may appreciate. When it comes to professional sports, you can choose between NFL, MLB, NBA, UFC, NASCAR and NHL contests.
If you’re a soccer fan, the site provides year-round betting as it covers, among others, the German Bundesliga, Europa League, and Spanish La Liga, alongside leagues in Turkey, Italy, Poland. Scroll down the left menu at BetRivers to find a list of all available sporting leagues.
While we aren’t home to any professional teams in WV, the state has a few Division I college teams that are worth a mention. We also have a couple of pro teams fairly close by. Here’s an idea of the teams close to home that you can bet on at BetRivers Sportsbook.
Though this may not be the same as betting on your favorite teams in the next town, BetRivers has a large enough range that every WV user is sure to find something of interest.
Futures involve betting on season-long outcomes such as championships and league and division titles for teams, as well as individual player awards and accomplishments. The odds at BetRivers will change frequently based on a number of factors, including current performance and team changes.
Select your sport and click the futures tab for all available options. For the NFL, for example, BetRivers offers lines on the winner of the Super Bowl alongside the winner of each division. Or, for another option, there is an array of options for soccer across 22+ countries. You can bet on particular players — such as the top goal scorer in the English Premier League or the most assists in the Bundesliga. Or there’s tennis, where for instance you could bet on the winner of the Australian Open across both the men’s and the women’s divisions.
BetRivers offers players multiple banking options to make visiting the cashier a straightforward process. Use online banking, PayPal, VIP Preferred or a BetRivers Play+ card to add cash to your sportsbook balance.
To withdraw funds, you can use your Play+ card or online banking, or receive a check by mail. The sportsbook has yet to introduce any in-person options in WV, though those are likely on the way.
Players can get in touch with BetRivers between 9:30 a.m. and 2 a.m. with any questions they may have about the site or online sports betting in general. To start, select the button for the help center at the top of any page. This will take you to the BetRivers FAQ.
Though this page needs a little bit of an update, you’ll find a list of categories to scroll through and a search bar to look for specific queries. If this doesn’t help, however, it’s time to get in touch with a customer support adviser.
Click the live chat button on the help center page to be put through to a member of staff. You might need to type in your question and account username first, though this shouldn’t take any longer than a minute or two.
Alternatively, submit an email to BetRivers using the form on the help page. A customer support phone line isn’t available at this time.
Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and click the applicable link to read BetRivers’ responsible gambling policy. The sportsbook clearly offers support to players who need it, such as allowing them to set limits on their betting and close their account should they wish.
The responsible gambling policy also lists a number of resources players can reach out to in order to receive help related to addiction.
BetRivers has yet to introduce its own retail sportsbook in WV, though we’ll update this article as soon as this changes.
The sportsbook’s owner has, however, recently partnered with Century Casino’s Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort ahead of launch. It’s likely that BetRivers users will soon be able to visit the resort as part of the sportsbook’s land-based offering.
BetRivers is owned by Rush Street Gaming, which is based in Chicago. Its online sportsbook first launched in Pennsylvania and later established itself in Colorado, Indiana and Illinois. While WV legalized sports betting in 2018, BetRivers launched there a couple of years later.
We really like the overall feel of the BetRivers site and think it is a strong contender as one of the best online sportsbooks in the state. BetRivers is fast, responsive and easy to use, allowing players to place even the most last-minute bets without issue. There is also a BetRivers WV online casino.
The desktop site and app work hand-in-hand to offer smooth betting from anywhere within state lines. While we might not be able to crown the sportsbook just yet, BetRivers really is a fantastic online sportsbook to consider giving a try.
