Rush Street Interactive Launches Sportsbook in Maryland

Rush Street Interactive's BetRivers brand has launched a retail sportsbook in the state of Maryland, working in conjunction with Bingo World to get the location to launch services.

The sportsbook will occupy a 3,000-square-foot space and include three teller stations and 12 self-service stations. There are also 32 seats, a full-service bar, and 21 HDTVs to watch the action on.

The book opened at noon on August 1st with a ribbon cutting ceremony that included Maryland State Senator Pamela Beidle, Baltimore Ravens alum Qadry Ismail, and BetRivers' own Adam Glass.

Regarding the launch Rush Street Interactive CEO Richard Schwartz said, "We are thrilled to partner with Bingo World to launch the BetRivers retail sportsbook in the state of Maryland.

"With Bingo World's brand recognition in the Baltimore area, the easy-to-access venue, and RSI's award-winning products and services, we look forward to delivering convenient and exciting sports betting options to retail customers and are excited about building trust and loyalty as they become familiar with our award winning product."

Bingo World President Randy Clemens also commented, adding: "We are so excited and honored to be the first operator outside of a casino to offer Maryland residents a retail sportsbook.

"Together with our partners at RSI, we can offer bettors a world-class in-person sports betting experience at the BetRivers sportsbook and lounge."

The launch comes as the state's lawmakers continue to doddle on launching regulated mobile sportsbetting. The state's governor had wanted the activity live before the start of the NFL season next month, but this doesn't look like it's going to happen. Thus, punters will have to visit retail books like BetRivers or go to neighboring states to get wagers in.
