Following the agreement, Hacksaw Gaming will make its maiden debut in the Mountain State via the operator’s BetRivers brand. The company has termed the brand one of the most reliable and fastest-growing gambling sites in the United States.
On August 3, the company announced that it had secured a content distribution license from the West Virginia Lottery. This license allows the company to partner with regulated operators in the state. Therefore, the Rush Street Interactive agreement is unsurprising.
Hacksaw Gaming has already lined up several well-liked online slots for players in West Virginia. These games will be integrated into BetRiver’s platform through the innovative content distribution network from Light & Wonder.
First up are Bowery Boys and Wanted Dead or a Wild, which are already up and running on the online casino. The company will proceed to launch more slots over the next few weeks, including:
- Toshi Video Club
- Joker Bombs
- Gladiator Legends
- Hand of Anubis
The company’s foray into the US iGaming scene is part of a larger plan to expand internationally, and West Virginia is now part of the studio’s list of recognized jurisdictions. Early last month, Hacksaw Gaming and Rush Street Interactive signed an agreement to launch the provider’s slots in Ontario, Canada, through BetRivers. Before that, the company secured reputable licenses in Malta, the UK, Romania, Greece, the Netherlands, Latvia, Italy, and Sweden.
Gabrielle Star, Hacksaw Gaming’s COO, hailed the partnership, terming it a “huge milestone” for the company. She stated that the supplier is thrilled to debut in the United States through RSI’s BetRivers, a leading casino brand, to cap off months of behind-the-scenes hard work.
The COO added: “As one of the first few states to adopt a forward-leaning approach towards iGaming, West Virginia is the ideal market to begin our US journey and we have no doubt that our extensive game library will resonate with its BetRivers players.
“This is just the beginning. We’ll be looking to explore more collaborative opportunities with RSI in our bid to become provider of choice for casino fans in West Virginia and across the country as more states liberalize their outlook on iGaming.”
On the other hand, Rush Street Interactive’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Schwartz, expressed the operator’s delight in extending their relationship with Hacksaw Gaming into the US after a successful debut in Ontario, Canada.
