RSI beats out competition for Delaware igaming contracts

RSI won the contract for the Delaware Lottery to run its igaming service in August last year. The RFP was reportedly involving 888. RSI is the sole remaining bidder, after all other parties withdrew.

Delaware Lottery has the option to extend this agreement. BetRivers’ multi-state website and app allows Delaware Park, Harrington Casino & Raceway and Bally’s Dover Casino to be accessed.

Helene Keeley, director of the Delaware Lottery, said that “RSI’s success in other jurisdictions including New Jersey and Pennsylvania are impressive along with its overall reputation and expertise.”

We are excited about partnering with RSI because of their commitment to responsible gambling, high-quality products, variety and breadth in gaming content, as well as excellent customer service.

Together, RSI Delaware Lottery is committed to delivering the best products and services possible to its customers.

RSI’s CEO Richard Schwartz said: “We’re thrilled to start this much-anticipated and historic launch of our new online casino and sportsbook.

Delaware’s customers will love our wide selection of games, deposit and withdrawal options, instant cash out approvals and top-notch customer service. They can bet on sports, table and slot games, from any location in the state.

We are proud to work with Delaware Lottery and its three casinos in order to provide Delaware consumers with a convenient and safe online gaming experience.
