1 Nov 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Rush Street Interactive, Inc., which operates the RushBet brand in Colombia and the BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse brands in the U.S., has been named Sportsbook of the Year at the SBC Awards Latinoamérica 2021. RSI was recognized for the successful performance of its online sportsbook in Colombia over the past year and for the strong user experience and originality of the RushBet platform.

The SBC Awards Latinoamérica reward and celebrate the very best operators, affiliates and service providers in betting and gaming. Winners were selected by a diverse panel of judges from all major disciplines in the Latin American gaming industry.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Colombia team and our commitment to ensuring RushBet players enjoy a top-quality and high-integrity entertainment experience,” said Mattias Stetz, Chief Operating Officer of RSI. “It’s especially gratifying as our entrance into the Colombian market in June 2018 marked the first launch of a legal and regulated online sportsbook and casino in the country by a U.S.-based gaming operator. Colombia and the greater Latin American market are strategically important to RSI’s long-term growth and we look forward to deepening our presence in the region.”

“As the world watches Latin America emerge into a premier gaming and sports betting destination, RSI is extremely honored to be recognized by the SBC Awards Latinoamérica as a top performer in this burgeoning market,” said Omar Calvo, GM of RSI Colombia. “Latin American sports bettors have made it clear they prefer, and we thank our talented team here in Colombia and across the globe for this achievement.”

The awards ceremony was held in Miami, Florida on October 28, 2021, as part of the SBC Summit Latinoamérica. The Summit convened some of the most influential members of the Latin American gaming industry, including Mr. Stetz, who was a speaker.
