Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has announced the expansion of a partnership with Design Works Gaming (DWG), while Rush Street has promoted Eric Althaus from Assistant General Manager to General Manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia.
Two months ago, RSI and DWG teamed up in New Jersey to bring iGaming content to RSI’s players in the Garden State. In the partnership’s second US market, players will be able to access LuckyTap games, and more on BetRivers’ website and app.
DWG’s slot games are delivered via Light & Wonder’s open gaming platform. More titles are slated to be released over the coming months.
Rush Street Interactive CEO Richard Schwartz said, “We are excited to expand our partnership with DWG and to further enhance our offering to BetRivers players in the market.”
DWG CEO Troy Zurawski said: “Since we first launched with RSI earlier this year, performance has far exceeded our expectations. RSI knows their player base inside and out and together we’ve been able to provide casino games we know are going to resonate with their customers.”
In Philadelphia, Althaus has also commented on the success of Rush Street's recent decisions, saying, “We have amazing talent here in Philly and we’re continuing the strong forward momentum we’ve gained over the past year.”
Althaus has also previously held roles of VP of Gaming at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, which included overseeing the launch of Pulse Arena. The casino is also planning to open a steakhouse, Martorano’s Prime, shortly, among other projects planned for 2023.
Tim Drehkoff, CEO of Rush Street Gaming, said, “Eric’s leadership and familiarity with Rivers Casino Philadelphia will allow for a seamless transition and continuity with key initiatives.”
