Apple Mobile Users In Pennsylvania Now Able To Place Online Sports Bets On BetRivers.com
Rust Street Interactive Premiers Solution for iOS Users in Pennsylvania to Legally Place Sports Bets Online Using iPads and iPhones
PITTSBURGH, July 19, 2019 – Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the digital and land-based sports wagering and gaming supplier of BetRivers.com, has deployed a simple and clean solution that allows patrons for the first time to wager using their iOS devices in Pennsylvania. After a player registers on their mobile devices at BetRivers.com, they will be directed to download the GeoGuard Location Validator from the Apple app store that will enable RSI to confirm that players are located within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania when they access BetRivers.com through their mobile browsers, such as Apple Safari or Google Chrome.
“We are excited to offer Apple users in Pennsylvania a way to enjoy the extremely wide range of pre-game and in-game bets offered on BetRivers.com from their mobile devices,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “In fact, the BetRivers.com platform is the only one in the state of Pennsylvania that currently enables players to bet from their iPhones and other Apple mobile devices.”
Apple users who log into their BetRivers.com account will be prompted to install the GeoGuard Location Validator app. Once downloaded, users who open the GeoGuard app will then be prompted to complete the set up with just two more quick steps to follow. Once that’s been completed successfully, players can navigate back to BetRivers.com on their browsers and begin placing bets directly from their mobile browsers. Importantly, once a player completes the process once, they can place mobile bets directly at BetRivers.com without going back to the app.
