BetRivers Casino Review 2022


BetRivers is one of the casinos operated by Rush Street Interactive. Along with its sister site, PlaySugarHouse, BetRivers is available in fourteen different states in the US - including New York, Pennsylvania, and Illinois - with more forecast to be added soon.

BetRivers wasted no time once legal online gambling and sports betting began to roll out around the US, and that efficiency tells you a lot about its platform. The site has a wide range of great games and bets, simple, easy to use software, good payment options, and some valuable promotions for new players. We’re covering all of that and more here.

Pros

  • Four separate deposit bonuses for new members
  • 1x wagering requirements on all bonus cash  
  • Instant withdrawals available 
  • Multiple progressive jackpots

Cons

  • Software feels a little dated
  • Missing some table games

Software and Range of Games

4.3/5

BetRiver’s software is not the flashiest or most modern you’re going to come across, but it is easy to use. The organization of the game menu is very intuitive, and you can customize the list using lots of different criteria: by game type, new games, popularity, software provider, and more. We could take a few less ads flashing around the screen, but it’s not a huge deal.

Games come from the likes of NetEnt, Red Tiger, and IGT - all excellent providers known for creating modern and exciting titles. They also have deals with independent testing labs like eCogra, who guarantee that the games they produce are fair and safe.

In general, the range of games at BetRivers is good, and should suit both beginners and experienced players who want a bit more variety.


Slots

BetRivers has a lot of slots titles. The variety of the games is great, from old classics like Starburst or Dead or Alive to brand new games fresh from the studios. You’ll be able to find something for just about every type of player. The available games feature everything from old school fruit machines to modern 3D slots with expandable reels, through to low-risk games with regular payouts and super volatile slots.

BetRivers has a section dedicated to progressive jackpot slots too, including Mercy of the Gods and Divine Fortune. At the time of writing the top jackpot was around $60,000.


Table games

BetRivers also has a selection of table games available. These include blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and several types of table and video poker – all of which we tested out and enjoyed the gameplay of. The table games come from a mix of providers, and it’s nice to see that variety on offer.

There are some notable omissions, however. You won’t find any keno, bingo or sic bo, for instance. Overall, BetRivers is probably best suited to slots fans who like having some table game options from time to time, but not anyone looking for a deep selection of table games.


Live casino

The live section of BetRivers is great. All the games are powered by Evolution, easily one of the top live software designers in the world, and work equally well on desktop and mobile. The range of games on offer is also good, with blackjack, roulette, poker, baccarat, and craps available live.

Some of Evolution’s unique creations introduce a random element into classic games at BetRivers. Take Lightning Roulette for example, where a random number on the roulette wheel is chosen every spin to receive a multiplier. It’s a fun new way of playing, and typical of Evolution.

Bonuses and Promotions

4.5/5

The BetRivers' welcome package offers good value to first time players. First up, your first deposit will qualify for a 100% boost up to $250, which is great. You’ll also get a 100% boost on your next three deposits, up to a maximum of $175 altogether. The best part is the wagering requirements, which are frozen at just 1x for all bonus cash at BetRivers. Having to bet bonus cash just once before you can withdraw it is excellent, and means that every bonus you claim is truly valuable.

Other promotions include Happy Hour Slots from 5-9pm, where you receive 2x payouts on special selected games. Certain table games are also subject to profit boost promotions on certain days.

BetRivers originally launched as a sportsbook, and a lot of the bonuses running at any time tend to be skewed towards sports betting. This is great for anyone who likes to mix their casino gaming with a few flutters in the sportsbook.


VIP Rewards

BetRivers’ reward program is called iRush. Every time you bet real money on any BetRivers platform, you’ll earn iRush points. The more points you earn, the more benefits you unlock, from special offers and free spins to instant withdrawals and even dinner at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh (or other partnered casinos depending on where you’re located). We like the iRush rewards system, although the best rewards are certainly heavily skewed towards high volume players.

Banking Options

4.5/5

We’re more than satisfied with the banking options at BetRivers. The best sites support lots of different methods, and that’s the case here, including debit/credit cards, bank transfer, ACH Transfer, PayPal, BetRivers Play+ Card, PayNearMe, Vanilla, and Cash at Casino Cage at local venues.

Withdrawals are slightly more limited, and can be processed via bank transfer, paper check by mail, cash at the casino or Play+ Card. The latter two options both support instant cashouts, while you’ll have to wait 2-5 days for a bank transfer or up to a couple of weeks for a check.

All the methods we tested at BetRivers worked perfectly, and it only takes a couple of minutes to complete a deposit.

Security and Fair Play

4.5/5

BetRivers is very robust from a security point of view. The site is available in almost fifteen states, and is licensed and regulated separately in each one. For example, in Pennsylvania you’ll see the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board badge displayed on the site. The games come from reputable software providers and are also tested independently for fairness.

If you run into any issues while playing, BetRivers also has a good customer support system. The “Support” button should be visible at the bottom of the page, where you can type in a keyword to find FAQ answers. If you can’t find a solution, you’ll be able to open live chat support.

Mobile Play

4.5/5

There are separate BetRivers apps for both iPhone and Android available in app stores. The app contains both the sportsbook and casino games on a single platform. It’s great to have both, but they are also kept fairly separate, so if you aren’t interested in sports betting you won’t be distracted by the sportsbook.

Our experts spent a lot of time with the app, and they only came back with positive things to say. While the desktop site sometimes feels a little behind the times, the app is more modern and does a great job of presenting the casino on the smaller screen. All the games worked great, even the live

Conclusion


BetRivers has a lot going for it.

We’re big fans of the welcome bonus package, which spans your first four deposits, but best of all is the incredible 1x wagering requirements on all bonus cash. This is not something you find every day, and means any bonus you get at BetRivers is guaranteed to be genuinely valuable.

Generally, the promos are more sportsbook focused than casino, which some will like and some won’t.

The excellent range of slots and live dealer games is not quite matched by the variety of table games, but overall the gaming menu is very good. The desktop software isn’t quite cutting edge, but it’s still nice and easy to use.

From a practical point of view, BetRivers is great: smooth banking experience, good security credentials, solid customer support.

We’re happy to recommend that you try BetRivers for yourself.
