West Virginia Online Casino Market Expands With The Launch Of BetRivers

Written By Chris Imperiale on April 14, 2021 - Last Updated on April 21, 2021

The number of West Virginia online casinos has increased by one. BetRivers Casino WV is now live in the Mountain State and available to download and wager with.

The state’s third online casino app launched this week. It joins DraftKings Casino WV and BetMGM WV as the only online casinos in the market.

BetRivers is up and running in WV thanks to Rush Street Interactive’s (RSI) partnership with Century Casinos and Mountaineer Casino.

Mountaineer is the third retail establishment to release an online app for casino betting. Hollywood Casino is partners with DraftKings, while BetMGM’s deal is with The Greenbrier.

This is great news for bettors located in the state and the market as a whole. Players now have a new online casino to utilize, and in return, the betting market should grow.

A new platform is helpful for bettors because it creates more competition. Not only can you take advantage of the welcome offers and such from the new BetRivers, but also, the other apps may provide more promos to keep up.

Although the WV market doesn’t include many online casinos, the industry is certainly getting bigger. In March, the two apps netted almost $4 million in revenue.

The addition of BetRivers will only continue to help bring in more wagers.

BetRivers Casino launches in WV

It’s been quite some time since an online casino app went live in WV.

DraftKings was the first to market in July 2020, right before BetMGM launched in August 2020. Since that point, no other app has become available.

That was great news for these two platforms, but now there is another online casino fighting for customers.

While BetRivers is a new name for bettors in WV, its presence is known in other parts of the country. RSI operates its online casino in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan as well.

Richard Schwartz, president of RSI, spoke about his company’s expansion into another state. According to Business Wire, Schwartz said:

“We are very pleased to officially launch BetRivers.com in West Virginia and show players why we are the No. 1 online casino site in neighboring Pennsylvania. BetRivers.com has been successful in developing deep player loyalty due to the focus we place on the online casino player and creating unique and exciting game play experiences for our customers.”

As with the best online casinos offered in the US, BetRivers will come equipped with a variety of gaming titles to keep you entertained.

It offers a bunch of different slots games along with standard table games like blackjack, baccarat and roulette.

The online casino should have more than enough games to keep your attention right now; however, it will only improve. BetRivers is constantly adding new casino games to give bettors fresh content.

The online casino is consistently updating its gaming library in states where it’s already offered.

Besides the regular titles, BetRivers is the only option in WV that delivers free bingo games to earn prizes and credit. The other apps may be forced to step up their game going forward.

BetRivers and RSI are also known for their loyalty program. Once you join the online casino, you’ll begin earning points just for betting on normal games. When you have enough points, you can turn them in for the chance to win even more prizes.
