With one month of operations under its belt, BetRivers is doing well in the state of West Virginia. The brand is already seeing enough interest from bettors that it is going to gain ground on its competitors eventually by way of earnings and bets place. BetRivers saw over $5.8 million in wagers placed, bringing in over well over $330,000 in earnings.
Comparing the Numbers
BetRivers now has four full weeks of operation in the state of West Virginia to review. The full month shows consistency in bets place and variance in revenues. For each of the four weeks, the online casino operator was able to see at least $1.1 million wagered weekly. The highest amount came during week three when $1.7 million in bets were placed.
Revenues ranged from $46,087 to $121,031 each week, with the top amount coming in during week three as well. These numbers are not as high as competitors like DraftKings and BetMGM, but they are a good start for the brand.
In comparison, DraftKings was able to see weekly bets of over $16 million and it earned around $346,000 a week on average. For BetMGM, the brand brought in $13.8 million in average weekly bets and over $430,000 in weekly earnings.
BetRivers also now has to deal with a fourth competitor, FanDuel Casino. The brand launched in early May and its first numbers will be released in the near future. It will be interesting to see which of the two newer operators are able to gain the support of players first.
Visitors to the new BetRivers Casino have access to a full gaming online casino site. The brand is able to offer services in the state thanks to a partnership with Mountaineer Casino. For new players to the brand, the site offers a first deposit bonus worth up to $250. This is lower than the standard amount and might set the brand back a bit when it comes to new player signups.
The site breaks down games into sections or you can view all the titles at once. To get a better idea as to what options the brand offers, it is best to narrow down your selection to game type. There is a New Games section, Blackjack section, Table and Card Games section, plus Slots and Progressive Games. You can easily find titles that suit your gameplay needs when in West Virginia.
The site is browser-based, so you can play from your desktop, laptop, or mobile device. The site is easy to navigate but doesn’t offer a unique or interesting design. It is very basic, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
The main component that players worry about is games, and BetRivers does offer a nice selection. It will be interesting to see how the brand performs in the coming months and if it is able to gain any ground against its three competitors. So far, the site is showing promise, but it might not be able to tackle the popularity of other brands like DraftKings.
