During the 10-year deal, RSI will serve as the exclusive sports betting system provider to the lottery across multiple mobile, online and retail channels. RSI will also serve as the operator of the mobile and online sportsbook.

“We are honored to be selected by the CLC to bring sports betting to the state and people of Connecticut,” said Richard Schwartz, President of RSI. 

“This partnership represents a significant milestone for RSI, as the trust and confidence of a state-backed organisation such as the CLC further validates the strength of our award-winning online gaming platform and customer service."

The CLC – permitting that RSI gets a licence from the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection – will be able to run up to 15 retail sports betting locations and a statewide online sports betting skin in partnership with RSI.

The CLC is one of the only three entities in Connecticut with rights to operate mobile and retail sports betting, and is the only entity that can run retail sports betting outside of tribal territories.

“We had 15 quality proposals from well-established gaming companies, and RSI rose to the top through the combination of its experience and commitment to quality products, customer service, and responsible gaming safeguards," said Greg Smith, CLC President and CEO.

“Rush Street Interactive is a respected sports betting and gaming company that has established itself as a leading innovator in the industry,” commented Rob Simmelkjaer, Chairman, CLC Board of Directors.

RSI is now live in 11 jurisdictions, including 10 states and one international market, Colombia.
