BetRivers Sportsbook Review

betrivers sportsbook michigan

BetRivers online sportsbook has yet to launch in Michigan. This review will be updated post-launch.

BetRivers is Rush Street Gaming’s official sports betting platform.

Rush Street Gaming is an Illinois-based company that owns and operates commercial casino properties in Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York. It also runs online and mobile sports betting operations under the BetRivers brand in Pennsylvania, under its Rivers Pittsburgh Casino license, and in Indiana under the French Lick Resort license.

Plus, Rush Street Gaming runs online and mobile sports betting and online casino operations under the PlaySugarHouse brand in Pennsylvania, under its newly rebranded Rivers Philadelphia license, and in New Jersey under the Monmouth Park Racetrack (sports) and Golden Nugget Atlantic City (casino) licenses.

Rush Street and BetRivers have signed into the Michigan sports betting market. BetRivers signed with Little River Casino and its operators, the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians. Rush Street will operate the Little River retail sportsbook. With the Michigan online and mobile sports betting market launching by early 2021, BetRivers will be part of the mix.

This BetRivers review provides guides for signing up, betting and getting money on and off a BetRivers Michigan site. It also includes a list of ongoing promotions, and a summary of the betting markets that would be available on BetRivers in Michigan.

BetRivers Sportsbook new player bonus

Thanks to the tax breaks for free-play offers in Michigan, it’s almost a guarantee that BetRivers will hit the Michigan market with some lucrative new player bonuses.

At the very least, new player bonuses will match what BetRivers offers in other states.

There’s nothing confusing about the BetRivers bonus offer for new players and no real strings attached. It’s basically a 100% deposit bonus up to $250.

Essentially, BetRivers matches deposits of up to $250, dollar for dollar, as long as you sign up using our bonus code PLAY250.

You’ll receive the credit in your account as bonus dollars, and all that’s required is a straightforward one-time playthrough.

Of course, you must bet with the bonus money within 30 days, or it will expire. But any winnings you accrue are yours to keep.
