|LOUISIANA’S COUSHATTA CASINO RESORT PARTNERS WITH RUSH STREET INTERACTIVE TO LAUNCH SOCIAL GAMING|
KINDER, La., Aug. 25, 2020 – Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the developer and supplier of a leading social gaming product, CASINO4FUN®, today announced the launch of a Social Casino & Social Sportsbook for Coushatta Casino Resort, operator of the largest casino resort in Louisiana. The Coushatta CASINO4FUN® site is powered by RSI’s proprietary iGaming Platform. The new social site offers gaming enthusiasts a large and growing catalog of over 300 fun and engaging online slots, table games, and live dealer games, as well as the ability to use the platform’s virtual economy to engage with a world-class sportsbook for free, all while offering Coushatta a digital platform for Customer Acquisition & Engagement.
“We are thrilled to offer our guests the popular amenity of online social gaming. We know COUSHATTA CASINO4FUN will create fun and excitement for our guests once they sign up to play,” stated Scott Sirois, General Manager at Coushatta Casino Resort. “Our new website delivers social casino gaming excitement directly to our guests’ fingertips––anytime, anywhere. With hundreds of casino games available on the website, some with the option of interacting with a live dealer, this brings us to a new level of guest service in the gaming industry,” he concluded.
The RSI iGaming Platform powers Casino4Fun®, the same technology driving RSI’s real money gaming sites, as well as in its omni-channel retail sportsbooks. The product has been built for the U.S. market from the perspective of a U.S. land-based casino operator.
“As more states move to legalize online casino and sports betting, forward-looking partners such as the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana are selecting Rush Street Interactive’s CASINO4FUN® Social Casino product to position themselves early for success once online gaming is legalized in their state,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “This partnership will provide them with a powerful marketing tool to increase their current casino customer engagement, reactivate lapsed players, and acquire new customers cost-efficiently.”
RSI is currently live with CASINO4FUN® sites supplied to Rivers Casinos in New York, Pennsylvania, and Illinois, as well as a lottery focused partner. The success of the social gaming sites in those markets has attracted interest from commercial and tribal casino partners like the Coushatta Tribe that are looking to extend their gaming brands, cultivate & monetize their player databases, and increase return visitation to their properties.
“We are very appreciative and thank the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana for their vote of confidence in granting Rush Street Interactive the privilege to power their online Social Casino & Sportsbook in the Pelican State,” said Schwartz. “We look forward to working together to build Coushatta Casino Resort’s online database through strategic marketing & promotions, which will increase interest in its property, which in turn, we expect to help generate more revenues.”
All CASINO4FUN® players must be at least 21 years old. The free sportsbook and casino games are available on all mobile devices, tablets, desktop and laptop computers. Registration is free and easy at http://www.ccrlafreeslots.com.
