Delaware Lottery Picks Rush Street for Online Gaming

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

Rush Street Interactive has entered into a five-year agreement with the Delaware Lottery to provide online gaming operations in The First State.

Before the new deal, 888 had been the sole company handling online gaming offerings in the state. 888 Casino and Delaware Lottery had entered into a partnership ten years ago, shortly after the state's online casino market went live in 2012.

Delaware was the first state in the US to legalize live casinos online and poker. However, due to its small population and modest profits from the endeavor, Delaware tends to be overlooked as an iGaming hub.

Additionally, Delaware hosts three physical venues – Harrington, Bally's Dover, and Delaware Park – all offering variations of the same online casino and poker products. The lottery currently generates $1.1 to $1.2 million in monthly revenue from its online gaming market.

According to Delaware Lottery, it "reviewed proposed bids from other online gaming companies and suppliers" and considered a "combination of experience and commitment to quality products, customer service, and responsible gaming" before deciding to select RSI as its new partner.

Rush Street Interactive has established itself as a leading innovator in the industry, and is a respected iGaming and sports betting company. We are impressed not only with RSI's successes in other jurisdictions, including neighboring New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but also its strong commitment to responsible gambling practices.

With its new achievement in the Delaware market, RSI continues to solidify its position as a prominent player in the online gaming industry. By establishing a foothold in the state, the operator sets the stage for Delaware customers to engage with its exciting library of offerings and state-of-the-art customer service.

We are honored to be selected by the Delaware State Lottery selection committee to provide online gaming operations in the First State. This partnership is yet another significant milestone for RSI, as the confidence of a state-backed organization, such as the Delaware Lottery, further validates the trust that lottery officials have in our award-winning online platform and customer service.

The company's CEO, Richard Schwartz, attributed the success to meticulous internal planning and execution.
