Habanero strikes Rush Street Interactive deal
Habanero has announced an agreement with Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the first United States-based gaming operator to launch a legal and regulated online sportsbook on a national basis in Latin America and a market leader in online casino and sports betting in the United States.
The Chicago-based company is known among its industry peers as the pre-eminent operator in the US online gaming market, having won the EGR North America “Mobile Operator of the Year” Award for 2019 as well as “American Operator of the Year” and “Casino Operator of the Year” at the 2019 American Gambling Awards.
Under the agreement, more than 50 titles from Habanero’s portfolio of engaging slots and table games have been launched on Rush Street Interactive’s RushBet.co, as well as taking its full portfolio of 170 games live with the group’s US-based social casinos in the near future.
The deal sees the supplier’s immersive gaming suite reaching a US audience for the first time, in addition to extending its LatAm reach following a string of major continental partnerships.
Commenting on the deal, Vera Motto, Business Development Executive at Habanero said: “We are thrilled to partner with Rush Street Interactive, a highly acclaimed group with an impressive multi-brand portfolio.
“We’re honoured to have been selected by an operator with such high standards and see this as testament to our record-breaking expansion over the past year. We look forward to a long and productive relationship together, especially when it comes to the US.”
Omar Calvo, GM at Rushbet.co added: “Habanero is a premium quality provider with a widely celebrated product suite, so we are delighted to partner with them as we continue to grow our existing catalogue of games for our players to enjoy.
“The supplier’s innovative slots and table games catalogue fits perfectly with our commitment to offer our players the most exciting mobile playing experience in Latin America, and we look forward to a productive commercial relationship across the Americas.”
