Rush Street And Delaware Lottery Announce iGaming Partnership

Rush Street Interactive (RSI) announced it had been selected by the Delaware Lottery as its new online gaming partner.

As a result, RSI will provide the lottery online gaming services for five years, renewable for additional one-year terms pending regulatory approval.

Rush Street coming to Delaware

In a news release, Rush Street CEO Richard Schwartz said the company was honored to be selected and eager to provide online gaming operations in the First State.

Schwartz continued by saying:

“This partnership is yet another significant milestone for RSI, as the confidence of a state-backed organization, such as the Delaware Lottery, further validates the trust that lottery officials have in our award-winning online platform and customer service. Building on our proven track record of success in the tri-state area of Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where RSI was an early entrant in the first online market in the U.S., we are honored to collaborate with the Delaware Lottery team and the state’s three casinos to offer consumers who are geo-located in Delaware with safe, convenient, and innovative online gaming experiences.”

Through its brands, BetRivers, PlaySugarHouse and RushBet, RSI was an early entrant in many regulated jurisdictions. If those brands make an appearance in Delaware remains unknown.

Impressive resume

Helene Keeley, director of the Delaware Lottery, said the lottery was impressed with RSI’s successes in other jurisdictions, including neighboring New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

“Rush Street Interactive has established itself as a leading innovator in the industry, and is a respected iGaming and sports betting company.”

Keeley also noted RSI’s strong commitment to responsible gambling practices and that the lottery looks forward to working with the RSI team.

“We reviewed proposed bids from other online gaming companies and suppliers, and the combination of experience and commitment to quality products, customer service, and responsible gaming is why we selected RSI. We’re delighted to begin this partnership and have no doubt that Delawareans and the customers of Delaware’s three casinos will be thrilled with RSI’s exciting library of offerings and industry-leading customer service.”

In June, the three Delaware casinos reported a combined $41.6 million in revenue from all in-person gaming. That translated to just under $14.8 million for the state’s share of revenue for the month.
