Between the strict location requirements and the thoroughness of the identity verification you can feel safe knowing that BetRivers takes their online betting seriously.
Installing the BetRivers Sportsbook App
The BetRivers Sportsbook app is available in the iOS App Store and Google Play. In each you’ll find individual apps for each state where BetRivers Sportsbook is licensed to operate: Indiana, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The apps are each identical but use precise GPS location reporting to restrict gaming to its specific state. BetRivers Sportsbook is licensed and affiliated with actual sportsbooks located in these casinos in each state:
- Colorado: J.P. McGills Casino
- Ilinois: Rivers Casino Des Plaines
- Indiana: French Lick Casino
- Iowa: Wild Rose Clinton and Wild Rose Jefferson
- Michigan: Little River Casino Resort
- Pennsylvania: Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and Rivers Casino Philadelphia
Each app will allow you to place all bets on all the same sports on the desktop website. In addition to bets, you’ll find the usual cashier, player rewards program and promotions. The layout is simple with the available sports listed along the top, a feed featuring live games in the middle and app navigation and betslip along the bottom.
If you reside in New Jersey or Connecticut, BetRivers does not actually have an app download for these states, but you can download the SugarHouse App – which is the exact same app software, under the name of their sister brand. The SugarHouse App offers the same bonuses, same games, and same user experience as the BetRivers App.
Entering Bonus Codes
You can enter bonus codes at the cashier or in the Bonus menu at the top of the app. In the cashier, first select your deposit method then tap on your desired deposit amount. Then scroll down to the Bonus Code field where you’ll be able to enter your bonus code. We’ve entered our bonus code FREEBET and you can see that the bonus code has been validated with a green border. If you enter an invalid code you’ll see a red border with a warning.
Placing Bets at BetRivers Sportsbook
When you load the app you’ll see that the most popular and current sports are listed along the top. At the time of this review, MLB, NFL, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, UFC are available. You can also bet on NHL, NBA, NCAA football and basketball, NASCAR, Indy Car, Formula 1 and PGA. Internationally, you can bet on Australian Rules Football, rugby, cricket, cycling and more.
The NFL is the biggest sport for betting. You can bet on more than games, including the draft, futures, player props. You can bet the usuals:
- Point totals
- Point spreads
- Quarters or halves
- Player props
You can even make live bets while the game is actually in progress. During a live game you can watch the lines and props; depending on how the game is going you might want to get in on the action but pay close attention to the lines as they constantly update throughout the course of the game.
To make a bet, simply tap on the game you want to bet on, choose from the available bets. The most popular bets are moneyline, spread and total points. I put $50 on a +102 moneyline for the Buffalo Bills to beat the Detroit Lions. For simple bets like these, simply enter the amount of money you want to bet. The app will calculate the amount to win and the potential payout. Tap on Place Bet to add the bet to your betslip.

I could see where this could be really nice to bet online and cash out at a casino cage. It's certainly more fun to watch a game at home or with friends instead of at a sportsbook. If you don't live in one of these states I don't see the point. Let me know if they start expanding to other states.
