Chicago-based Rush Street Interactive has launched the first mobile sports betting offering in the US state of Indiana under its BetRivers.com brand.

The online offering went live on October 3rd in partnership with French Lick Resort.

"What better time to launch than in the height of football season, the start of baseball playoffs and just before basketball returns?" said Rush Street Interactive president Richard Schwartz."We know our players are really going to appreciate the convenience of being able to place wagers online anywhere in Indiana, adding to the excitement of these sporting events.

“Our experience and success in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York allows us to zero-in on what players want – a massive range of sports betting options, through reliable and scalable technology, with responsive customer service, and fast payouts."

Rush Street and French Lick opened their retail sportsbook in Indiana in early September, and all wagering types available at the casino sportsbook will be available online at BetRivers.com.

Indiana's mobile sports betting regulations do not require in-person registration at the casino, allowing players to register and play instantly on their mobile phones from anywhere in the state.

"We are excited to make history in the state of Indiana,” Schwartz added. “As a Chicago-based business and affiliate of the trusted and market leading Rivers Casino in Illinois, we are proud to expand our trust into Indiana.

“We are thankful for the Indiana Gaming Commission giving Rush Street Interactive their vote of confidence and authorising us to launch online sports betting in the state. We look forward to working together with French Lick to continue our great partnership."
