After receiving other proposals, RSI was selected by the state program due to its 'neighboring success' and 'commitment to responsible gambling.'

The Delaware State Lottery has chosen Rush Street Interactive (RSI) to be its vendor for a five-year initial term of operating online gaming statewide. Pending regulatory approvals, RSI will be able to renew for additional one-year terms in future.

RSI is currently live in 15 states, as well as within Ontario in Canada, Mexico and Colombia. RSI also recently announced a partnership with Swedish company Play’n Go in Michigan and New Jersey today.

Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, commented on being chosen by the Delaware State Lottery, “We are honored to be selected by the Delaware State Lottery. This partnership is yet another significant milestone for RSI, as the confidence of a state-backed organization, such as the Delaware Lottery, further validates the trust that lottery officials have in our online platform and customer service.”

Schwartz also promised to provide players in Delaware with “safe, convenient and innovative” online gaming.

Helene Keeley, Director of the Delaware Lottery, said, “Rush Street Interactive has established itself in the industry and is a respected iGaming and sports betting company.

“We are impressed not only with RSI’s successes in other jurisdictions, including neighboring New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but also with its strong commitment to responsible gambling.”

Keeley also stated that the Delaware State Lottery had reviewed proposals from other online gaming suppliers before ultimately selecting RSI. Though Delaware has only three casinos, it was the first state to legalize iGaming as part of the Delaware Gaming Competitiveness Act of 2012.
