RSI’s agreement for MI online casino with Evolution will bring the popular Red Tiger game studio to BetRivers Casino in Michigan. The new games include Bounty Raid, 777 Strike and Reel Keeper. These games will soo be joined by Red Tiger’s Cash Vault, Piggy Riches Megaways and Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, which are popular titles on BetRivers.com in Pennsylvania.

"We are excited to partner with Evolution to bring these top quality and much-loved Red Tiger casino games to our players in Michigan," Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, which operates BetRivers.com, said in a news release. "RSI was the first to debut the Red Tiger games in the U.S. where they are already some of the top-performing games in Pennsylvania. We are thrilled to now launch Red Tiger in Michigan where we are sure these games will become fan favorites for our loyal players there as well."

Evolution develops, produces and licenses fully integrated live casino solutions to gaming operators across the country.

"This collaboration with RSI will allow us to deliver these popular games to other markets in the U.S. in an accelerated fashion and will help strengthen our position as a top provider in the online casino category."

In Michigan, BetRivers gained market access through its partnership with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians. The tribe operates the Little River Casino Resort in Manistee. BetRivers was one of the operators who went live with online MI sports betting and internet casinos on Jan. 22.

BetRivers is one of 11 operators fighting for the remaining market share after the big three of BetMGM Casino, FanDuel and DraftKings Casino. Online casino revenue has been steady for BetRivers, with the operator reporting at least $6 million in gross receipts the previous five months.

For July, BetRivers posted its highest gross receipts for a month, recording $6.8 million. BetRivers’ July total was the fourth-highest in the state, trailing only BetMGM ($33.9 million), DraftKings ($15.2 million) and FanDuel ($14.4 million).
