Today, Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: RSI) ("RSI") is proud to announce it has become the first U.S.-based online casino and sports betting company to receive RG Check iGaming Accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) for its BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com sites. RG Check is regarded as the world’s most comprehensive and rigorous responsible gaming accreditation program. It was developed to meet or exceed all existing responsible gaming regulatory requirements and is valid for three years. Accreditation is reviewed by a prestigious panel of independent responsible gaming specialists.
RSI is especially proud to announce this achievement during March, which is “Problem Gambling Awareness Month,” and remains focused on being at the forefront of this important topic.
“Receiving RG Check Accreditation is a testament to our commitment and execution of RSI’s corporate social responsibility strategy, which includes the continued implementation of the Company’s responsible gaming initiatives,” said Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI, which operates BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com. “We want to ensure our valued customers and employees are equipped with the tools and resources necessary to help ensure a culture of safe, fair and fun gaming experiences.”
“RG Check is a clear demonstration that an operator prioritizes and embeds responsible gambling into the core of its operations. RGC commends BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com for achieving RG Check Accreditation,” said Shelley White, CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council. “This achievement represents RSI’s commitment to transparency, player safeguards, duty of care and continuous improvement, as well as contributes to creating a culture of responsible gambling and sustainable play. RG Check is an invaluable tool for managing risk and increasing the effectiveness of RG programming. RGC is proud to provide continuous support to RSI’s harm minimization efforts.”
Rush Street Interactive is currently live in thirteen states in the U.S. and also internationally in the regulated gaming market of Colombia. On April 4th, BetRivers real-money online casino and sportsbook will go live in Ontario, Canada which will become the third country where RSI operates real-money online gaming. RG Check accreditation has been mandated into the requirements for all iGaming operators entering the Ontario marketplace by iGaming Ontario (iGO) to attain within two years of licensing.
