ESNY, BetRivers Sportsbook Review

New players to BetRivers can take advantage of a $250 deposit match.

BetRivers isn’t the strongest sportsbook in the new-player-offer and bonuses/promos regard, but its $250 deposit match is an intriguing welcome for any online sports gambler.

This is one of the most user-friendly signup codes, as there is no lengthy requirement to repetitively wager the money. You simply have to wager the bonus funds once. If you win it back, you get to keep it. Fair deal.

BetRivers will match your first deposit (100%) up to $250. You’ll only need to roll over the bonus amount once to cash out.

BetRivers Sportsbook Betting App and Features Review: 3.5

ESNY, BetRivers Sportsbook Review

BetRivers’ mobile application gets the job done in more ways than one. Its design allows for simplicity easy-to-use navigation. It is also now available on the App Store (Apple) in addition to the Rivers Casino version on Google Play (Android).

It might not bring the blockbuster value of a DraftKings or FanDuel, but BetRivers is comfortable playing the underdog role.

BetRivers’ website can be a bit cluttered at first glance. Its leaderboard on the right-hand side is a bit much, but from an overall standpoint, the site’s navigation helps make it an easy platform to use.

How We Got Here

New York State FlagNew York isn’t there quite yet. While sports betting is legal in the state, the wait for the online and mobile app end of things continues despite several states launching online wagering platforms in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 decision to repeal the nationwide sports betting ban.

July 2019 marked the first time New Yorkers could legally wager on sports (brick-and-mortar locations only). Rivers Sportsbook in Schenectady, the first place in New York state where it legally opened up for sporting events, opened on July 16.

Naturally, politicians were the first to place a sports bet. Gary Pretlow, chair of the state Assembly racing and wagering committee, placed a bet on the Seattle Mariners. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy put his faith in the Boston Red Sox.

The conversation surrounding opening it up for online use is as heavy as ever, with Governor Andrew Cuomo taking center stage.
