Rush Street Interactive (RSI), one of the leading sportsbook and online gaming suppliers and operators in the US, has announced a partnership with the Little River Casino Resort to be the service provider for its in-casino retail sportsbook.
The partnership with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians also provides RSI with access to the online market in Michigan, with plans to launch a co-branded online sports betting and online casino statewide as soon as Michigan regulations allow. While Little River Casino Resort plans to open its new retail sportsbook early third quarter, online wagering in Michigan will launch later, on a schedule determined by regulators.
“The successful track record of Rush Street Interactive as a provider of in-casino sportsbooks in Pennsylvania, New York and Illinois, was very significant to us when we chose them as our partner,” said Andrew Gentile, General Manager of Little River Casino Resort. “Rush Street’s ability to provide a road map of how they’ve enabled other land-based casinos to operate market-leading sportsbooks kept us from having to reinvent the wheel.”
“The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians has built an outstanding reputation and we are thrilled they have chosen RSI to be a part of that tradition,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “Being only a lakeshore away in Chicago, the Rush Street Interactive team views this partnership as an opportunity to help bring a property-wide lift to Little Rivers Casino Resort—from slots to tables to restaurants—thanks to the tremendous and growing popularity of sports wagering.
