BetRivers Iowa Sportsbook to go Live on New Years Day 2021Tonight, the ball drops, sending millions of Americans into a celebratory frenzy. Never has a New Years Day been so highly anticipated throughout modern history. Saying goodbye to 2020 could be more therapeutic than anything else. And of all the things we have to look forward to in the coming year, the great people of Iowa will have a little something extra – the ability to login, register, and place sports bets at the United State’s number one mobile sportsbook, BetRivers.com, from the comfort and safety of their homes.

BetRivers Iowa Sportsbook Live New Years Day

A press release came down the wire this week officially announcing the upcoming launch of BetRivers Mobile Sportsbook in Iowa. Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the operative wing of Rush Street Gaming that provides digital power to all BetRivers websites across multiple U.S. states, confirmed on Wednesday that it will “bring its five-star service at BetRivers.com to Iowa’s five-star sports culture” beginning January 1, 2021.

Tomorrow morning, sports fans in the Hawkeye State will have access to millions of bets, across thousands of games, spanning dozens of sporting events around the world, all in the palms of their hands via BetRivers Mobile. There’s no need to visit a land-based casino to register an account or deposit money for online wagering. Through the new BetRivers Iowa Mobile Sportsbook, the experience will be entirely digital. Anyone over the age of 21 can open visit website or download the mobile app on their smartphone or tablet, create a user account, make a deposit, and start betting within just a few minutes.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect, either. Iowa’s biggest collegiate teams are performing extremely well right now. The Iowa State Cyclones are preparing to make history with their first ever appearance in the Fiesta Bowl against the Oregon Ducks on Saturday. The Big Ten men’s basketball season is heating up, with the top-ten ranked Iowa Hawkeyes looking to make a big push into March.

RSI Thrilled to Bring Mobile Sports Betting to Iowa

Since August 2018, RSI has brought sports betting to more than half a dozen U.S. states via PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey, and BetRivers.com in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. RSI President Richard Schwartz was elated to announce the addition of Iowa to that list come tomorrow morning.

“We are thrilled to make history by offering players in the Hawkeye State the opportunity to wager on a broad range of exciting sports betting options from the convenience and comfort of their own homes,” said Schwartz.

“RSI has earned the trust and preference of players in the Midwest region and across the country by developing a high-performing, secure, reliable online sportsbook and constantly innovating our offerings,” Schwartz went on. “We are confident sports bettors in Iowa will appreciate RSI’s player-first, honest and transparent approach to customer service as well as the safety and convenience afforded by remote sign-up.”

BetRivers.com and its land-based casino partner, Wild Rose Entertainment, will operate with a regulatory license from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. Since launch, RSI’s online and mobile betting platforms have already achieved market leading status in the sates of Illinois, Pennsylvania and New York, receiving multiple prestigious operator awards along the way.
