Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers Casino and PlaySugarHouse.com have launched their own branded live-casino studios for Pennsylvania online casino players.

Both sites will provide three live dealer blackjack tables available exclusively for their customers, according to a news release.

Customers can now access and wager on the live tables, as they went fully operational on Thursday. They also went live for New Jersey online casino players.

The RSI-dedicated casino studios, powered by Evolution, offer players an array of live blackjack games 24/7, the release said.

“Since we initially launched our live dealer games with Evolution in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we've had requests from customers to offer exclusive tables with seats only available to players loyal to our brands,” Richard Schwartz, chief executive officer of RSI, said in the release. “Now our players will have their own dedicated seats where they can chat and interact with not only our dealers but also other players in our online community, who can interact in real-time, adding a fun social aspect to the betting experience as if they were at a land-based casino.”

Every transaction a player makes will earn points that can be used at BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com’s bonus stores for wheel spins, bonus money, free bets and other bonuses.

In addition to Pennsylvania gambling, Rush Street is live in nine other states with real-money mobile, online and/or retail operations — Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa and West Virginia.


Strong PA Online Numbers

While PA sports betting figures were down in July, Pennsylvania saw online casino numbers increase. The gross revenue from table games in July was about $86.9 million. That was 12% up from June and broke record for a month ($82.53M in March 2019).

Interactive slots handle was up also, to $1.745 billion, a 5.5% increase from June and its gross revenue also increased to $63.22 million in July, about 4.6% better than June.
