BetRivers operates a fully licensed online sportsbook with a broad range of bet types and are available on iOS, Android and Web Browser. They were launched by the parent company Rush Street Interactive following the overturning of the federal sports wagering ban in 2018 in the Supreme Court. They are operating in a number of states that have regulated online sports betting, and the list is quickly growing.

WHY IS BETRIVERS SIGN UP OFFER SO GOOD?

The Sign Up bonus of a 100% Deposit match up to $250 might not sound as big as some of their competitors, but the devil is in the detail. Their Sign Up bonus is a Deposit Match. So once you deposit, you will receive an additional amount equal to that into your account. That amount will only need to be turned over once in your account. This is compared to most other competitors who offer a ‘Risk Free First Bet’. This means you will only see a benefit from your sign up if your first bet loses. Often the Bonus Bet you receive upon signing up also has multiple turn over requirements attached. With BetRivers offer you will receive the bonus at deposit, so regardless of whether your first bet wins or loses you will receive your benefit.


BETRIVERS CUSTOMER SERVICE

We think good quality and highly available Customer Service is a key requirement from a sportsbook. It’s always someone to call if you have for example a delayed bet settlement or questions about qualification for promotions. At BetRivers, they have a customer service team that is available on call every day between 9:30 AM and 2 AM to answer such questions. Or if you don’t want to contact them via phone, they also have offer live chat and email.

WHAT DOES BETRIVERS CEO, RICHARD SCHWARTZ, HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THEIR PRODUCT? 

"Our goal is to build the best user experience you can, for Casino and sportsbook. To constantly improve it, so that it gets to the point where we offer something that is unique in the marketplace. We’re focused on building the business and running it. However, obviously, there are rumors like this all the time in our industry and right now our name is coming up quite often. It really goes back to why we built the business, why we’re focusing on things like market access, building in-house platform technology, which is very important in this industry. We have a casino focus, which a lot of companies are now recognizing as important. But at the end of the day, this is a very early stage of this industry. So, it’s exciting to hear that, but we’re just building this business to run it."


ODDS – ANY GOOD?

Shopping for the best odds is a fundamental step all good bettors take before placing their bets. BetRivers odds generally match most of the major online sportsbooks. They seem to take the policy of sitting ‘mid-market’. They are certainly not a market-maker, but are also not super conservative.  If you like viewing your odds in different formats, BetRivers also offer the ability to easily switch to fractional, and decimal odds from the traditional American format.
