Rush Street launches for Apple users in Pennsylvania

Rush Street Interactive’s brand PlaySugarHouse.com has become the first legal sportsbook and casino website live in Pennsylvania to enable betting from iPhone users.

Apple

Apple recently announced any app available on its app store must be written using the company’s iOS coding.

Most gambling apps are constructed using HTML5, which is easily launched and integrated.

The ban prevented operators from fully entering markets that had regulated online verticals, restricting them to players using Android platforms.

However, Rush Street Interactive has found a way around the ban, through the use of an iOS-powered geolocation app.

Once registered, players will be directed to download the GeoGuard Location Validator from the Apple app store, which will confirm they are located in Pennsylvania.

Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, said: "We're pleased players with Apple mobile devices will be able to use the mobile web to play with PlaySugarHouse.com."

Players must agree to always allow the app to access their location while betting online, and must also allow it to send notifications.

The process only needs to be completed once per device. Apple has not yet responded to Rush Street’s announcement.
