Rush Street Interactive (RSI) was founded by industry gaming veterans and its management team has decades of collective experience in developing, supplying, and operating regulated Online Gaming sites. We only work in legal and regulated markets – there is no grey market risk with us! This means we always pay gaming taxes to the local governments in all of our markets.

Based in Chicago, RSI launched its first Social Gaming site, SugarHouse Casino4Fun in July 2015. Shortly thereafter, Social Gaming sites were launched for Rivers Casino Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), Rivers Casino Des Plaines (Illinois), and Rivers Casino Schenectady (New York).

RSI launched its first Online Gaming Casino site, PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey, in September 2016, and subsequently, in August 2018, it added a fully integrated Online Gaming Sportsbook.

RSI is the provider of an omnichannel platform for the Land-based Sportsbooks at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, Rivers Casino Philadelphia, Rivers Casino Schenectady, Rivers Casino Des Plaines, and French Lick Casino (Indiana).

Additionally, RSI was the first U.S. gaming company to launch a regulated Online Gaming Sportsbook in Latin America.
