The leading provider of games for the online gambling vertical, Hacksaw Gaming, announced it entered the regulated online gambling market in the United States thanks to a new content distribution deal. The company unveiled Wednesday that it joined forces with the fast-growing and trusted online casino and sports betting operator in the US, Rush Street Interactive.
Under the terms of the new deal, lauded as a landmark agreement, popular games from Hacksaw Gaming were integrated into RSI’s BetRivers brand. The integration was completed through Light & Wonder’s distribution network, allowing BetRivers’ customers in West Virginia to access thrilling titles from the iGaming developer.
Hacksaw Gaming’s The Bowery Boys is already available for customers of the brand in West Virginia. Additionally, the collaboration will see the addition of the developer’s flagship game, Wanted Dead or a Wild, along with other hit games such as Stack’em, Toshi Video Club, Gladiator Legends and Joker Bombs, among others.
The recent entry into the iGaming vertical in the US comes after earlier this month, Hacksaw Gaming confirmed it secured a license in West Virginia. At the time of the announcement, the iGaming content developer revealed that it was awarded a license from the gambling regulator in the state, the West Virginia Lottery, allowing it to distribute its portfolio of games to licensed operators.
Additionally, the launch with RSI’s brand in West Virginia complements another collaboration between the duo. The companies recently joined forces for the regulated gambling market in Ontario, Canada.
The Companies Are Excited to Join Forces Once Again
RSI’s CEO, Richard Schwartz, spoke about the latest agreement with Hacksaw Gaming saying that the company is excited to expand with the iGaming developer into the US market. He praised the success of the duo’s launch in Ontario and said that RSI is delighted to expand its offering in West Virginia with games from Hacksaw.
“We are so pleased to extend our partnership with Hacksaw Gaming into the US, after our successful launch with them in Ontario last month.“
