Rush Street Interactive, a US-based i-gaming company has entered into an agreement with Kambi Group, a global supplier of sports betting services based at Malta, which will allow the former to avail the latter’s top-notch sports betting technology and services.

The deal will also see the integration of Kambi Group’s market-leading Sportsbook technology into Rush Street Interactive’s proprietary online gaming platform.

This move comes in the wake of U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to repeal the country’s federal sports betting ban in full. Rush Street is gearing up to launch a Sportsbook solution within states where permission can be obtained.

Chicago-based Rush Street Interactive is affiliated with Rush Street Gaming, which owns and operates four bricks and mortar casinos in three of the country’s largest states – New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois. The company also operates the rapidly growing PlaySugarhouse.com online casino site in New Jersey’s regulated market.

In two of the four states where Rush Street operates, local lawmakers have already enacted sports betting legislation, and the other two are in the process of developing a legal framework for regulated sports betting now that the prohibition is lifted.

As RSI operates its own proprietary platform, it has developed and implemented unique features, tools, and enhancements to differentiate the player experience, further positioning the company for the future online sports betting market.

“Rush Street Interactive was founded on the key principles of providing entertaining and memorable experiences to our customers, without compromising on integrity,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “Therefore, when deciding to launch a sports betting product, it was key we chose a partner who shared those principles, and at the same time provided us with the opportunity to launch a premier product firmly aligned with Rush Street’s focus on innovation and player experience.”

“Now following the exciting Supreme Court ruling, we look forward to launching a high-quality Sportsbook in the U.S. in the near future, as well as in other regulated international markets,” Schwartz added.

“This agreement with Rush Street Interactive, one of the most respected gaming companies in the U.S., is recognition that Kambi not only has online premium sports betting services ready to appeal to American sports enthusiasts, but those services will help protect the integrity of sports,” said Kristian Nylen, Kambi Chief Executive.

Delaware North, the US based casino operator, has filed a lawsuit against its sports betting joint venture partner Miomni Gaming.

The operator is seeking monetary damages through the suit filed in the Chancery Court of Delaware, including Miomni’s 49% stake in the BetLucky joint venture, which the supplier is apparently refusing to give up. The joint venture was made to launch the BetLucky sports betting platform. Delaware North then terminated the contract earlier this month.

The operator claims Miomni made fraudulent claims to induce it to enter into a joint venture, as well as of wilfully breaching a limited liability company agreement governing the operation of BetLucky.

Delaware North claims that Miomni and chief executive Venner repeatedly claimed to own intellectual property rights to the platform, including the source code for the front end and back end of the platform.

Washington Trotting Association, LLC, operator of the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, received a US$12.5k fine for an underage gaming violation. This fine stemmed from an 18-year-old male gaining access onto the gaming floor, wagering at table games and being served alcohol.
