Rush Street Interactive’s sportsbook BetRivers commenced its activities in Maryland on Monday. Bettors across the state were able to deposit funds and place bets during a controlled demonstration that took place on November 21 from 2 pm to 10 pm. BetRivers expects to be fully live with online wagering activities on Wednesday 23.
Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, commented: “The much-anticipated launch of online and mobile sports betting in Maryland is here, and just in time for all the NFL and College football action over Thanksgiving. We are thrilled to give Maryland’s NFL and college football fans an exciting sports betting experience to enjoy all the holiday action at the touch of their fingertips.”

To celebrate the arrival of the BetRivers sportsbook in Maryland, RSI is offering a first-time deposit offer where bettors will get a second chance bet, up to $500, on their first bet if it loses.
The BetRivers website and app offer integrated betting content and live streaming on a wide variety of sports, numerous deposit and withdrawal methods, automated pay-out approvals for over 80% of requests, and bonus and rewards programs, including conversion of bonuses to cash, the brand explains.
“We focus on the player experience and encourage Marylanders to see for themselves why RSI and BetRivers have received numerous recognitions from the industry for the quality of our product and user experience,” Schwartz stated.
“BetRivers offers an innovative yet simple website and app experience with more and quicker ways to deposit and withdraw funds, all supported by best-in-class customer service that works hard every year to earn and retain player trust,” he concluded.
Back in August, BetRivers opened its retail sportsbook at Bingo World in Baltimore, which features a lounge area with 32 theater-style seats, a bar, 21 hi-def video screens surrounding the space, and air multiple events concurrently, streaming BetRivers odds boards and 12 sports wagering kiosks to place bets.
The opening was preceded by a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by former player for the Baltimore Ravens Qadry Ismail; BetRivers B2B services director Adam Glass; and Maryland state Senator Pamela Beidle, among others. The ribbon was cut by Randy Clemens, president of Bingo World.
