Rush Street Interactive has a lot of business ventures and interests in the sports betting world. Two of them are BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse. Rather than operate what is essentially the same entity under two different names, RSI has streamlined its processes and Play SugarHouse has become BetRivers NJ. SugarHouse in Pennsylvania has undergone the same change as the one in New Jersey.
Kambi powers the odds platform and BetRivers is now available in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and New Jersey. BetRivers was actually the first online sportsbook operator in Indiana. For the purposes of this page, though, we will be focusing on BetRivers NJ.
BetRivers began through the retail sportsbook in Pittsburgh and has since branched out to multiple states and has overtaken the SugarHouse name. That doesn’t happen by accident. It happens because Rush Street Interactive puts out a great product and where there has been demand, they have been there to provide supply.
This is definitely a sports betting app to have on your radar. It looks like BetRivers will continue to be a player as new states get on board, so having this one in your pocket or bookmarked on your computer is a good idea.
How do I sign up at BetRivers?
Go to the website here and enter the required personal information. BetRivers isn’t fishing for intel. This information is required by the state of New Jersey. Additional validation may be needed even after putting in your name, address, email address, phone number, and last four of your social security number.
You can sign up for BetRivers from anywhere, but in the case of this NJ-specific page, you have to be in the state of New Jersey to use the app which can be downloaded after registration on the website. Geolocation tracking will let the app know where you are. You will not have access to real money betting unless you are in New Jersey, but can still use other features on the app.
I signed up for an account. Now what?
Most sportsbooks in New Jersey offer a risk-free bet, wherein they reimburse your first bet if it loses. Not BetRivers. BetRivers actually gives you a deposit match bonus, which makes it one of the best bonuses in the industry. Check for the most recent bonuses, though BetRivers will generally have a 100% match bonus up to a certain amount of money upon your first deposit. You will have 30 days to bet those bonus funds.
How do I make a deposit at BetRivers? Once your account is all set up and validated, find the Cashier tab and use your preferred method of deposit. You can do credit or debit card, a bank transfer with an ACH/e-check payment, you can use the BetRivers Play+ Card, cash at the cage at the BetRivers Sportsbook in New Jersey, PayPal, online bill pay, or PayNearMe. As you can see, they make it easy. There are a ton of options.
Withdrawal options are generally limited compared to the deposit options, but there will be more than enough of them to get your money out.
How do I bet on sports at BetRivers?
You can bet pregame. You can bet during the game. You can bet futures. You can bet props. You can bet spreads, totals, money lines. You can bet whatever your heart desires. BetRivers is equipped to take bets on all of the major sports, including the NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL, college football, college basketball, and even the niche markets like UFC, NASCAR, golf, tennis, soccer, and European leagues and sports.
In other words, you can basically bet on anything at BetRivers. The only restriction is a New Jersey state restriction that prohibits betting on college sporting events being held in the state. Other than that, you have a ton of options.
Live betting is a great feature at BetRivers. Because Kambi has so many partnerships and so much experience in this arena, the live betting interface runs flawlessly at BetRivers. Watching the game?
