Rush Street Interactive, Inc., a Chicago-based online gaming company that operates sportsbooks in 10 markets, and GTG Network, a data insights, gamification and technology company, on Wednesday unveiled a multi-year, co-exclusive partnership to offer GTG’s iSport Genius data facts and insight.
The iSport Genius product now is live in every state in which RSI operates its online sportsbook, BetRivers.com: New Jersey, New York, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Colorado, Iowa and Virginia.
The two companies said the co-exclusive deal makes RSI one of only four US sportsbooks that will have the rights to offer the customer education and sports data information service to its bettors.
The facts displayed on the BetRivers sportsbook cover all major sports, including NBA, MLB, NFL, PGA, NHL, UFC and NASCAR, and betting markets, from moneyline, spread, and totals (over/under) through to more sport-specific markets. GTG said many thousands of facts are produced, factoring in betting, location, venue, team, fixture, calendar and other data.
All this information comes together to produce game facts for BetRivers’ customers, including player props, stadium/venue analytics, predictor and written previews, GTG added.
“BetRivers is dedicated to offering its bettors a best-in-class user experience, and this agreement with GTG Network ensures our players have the top sports betting information at their fingertips,” Richard Schwartz, president of RSI, said in a statement. “We have designed our platform so with a single click, sports enthusiasts can easily access an incredible deep dive of facts to make more informed and educated decisions before placing a bet.”
Nathan Rothschild, co-founder and partner at GTG Network, added, “iSport Genius has been deployed with operators in Australia, Europe and now the US and the feedback has proved it to be a hugely popular and valuable product for bettors and sports fans alike. We are especially excited in partnering with RSI.”
