BetRivers may not immediately ring any bells for residents in Colorado. However, the BetRivers sportsbook app is usually one of the first to market for good reason.
The site is the product of gaming operator Rush Street Interactive. Rush Street owns and operates both online and retail casinos and sportsbooks in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, and Indiana.
So, the Colorado debut of BetRivers is certainly not the app’s first rodeo. You will quickly find that BetRivers has odds boosts every single day and a fantastic rewards program for loyal players.
The guide below is your source for all things BetRivers in the Centennial State. Read on for all the latest updates, news, and bonuses on this great new site.
You’ll enjoy a 100% bonus at BetRivers Colorado. This is matched to your first deposit. The minimum deposit is just $10, with the maximum for this welcome bonus offer being $250. Bonus funds will be deposited into your account within 48 hours. You then have 30 days to use your bonus bets.
Many online sportsbooks have complex terms and conditions. The good news for new bettors at BetRivers is that the bonus is both easy and fair. This bonus has a simple 1x play-through requirement. As soon as you bet your bonus funds, they become “cleared” and are available for withdrawal.
To take advantage of this bonus, you’ll need to use the bonus code “PLAY250” when making your initial deposit. Keep an eye on the “promotions” page at betrivers.com for any specials and one-off deals.

When you register at BetRivers, you’ll automatically get enrolled into the iRush Rewards loyalty scheme. This is the main way that this sportsbook rewards its regular players. It involves two types of points.
There are 11 loyalty levels in total. Regular levels go 1 through 10 — then a VIP level that is for invited members only (wager enough and you’ll be invited in).
To move through the levels, you’ll need to accumulate loyalty points. Place a single wager and you’ll earn 1 point for every $5 staked, while combination bets (parlays and the like) will see you earn those points quicker the more selections that are involved. Place a $5 parlay with 10 to 12 selections, and you’ll earn 10 points (10x the speed at which you would when placing a single team bet).
Each of the levels brings its own new rewards. At levels 1 and 2 you’ll receive access to the bonus store, while rewards open up as you progress further. Good examples include BetRivers special offers (Level 3 and up), VIP birthday gifts (Level 7 and up), VIP thank you dinner (Level 10 and VIP) and a free Apple or Android device (VIP Level).
You’ll be able to track how far you are from the next level by using the progress bar, a handy little meter that makes it easy to track exactly where you are.
One of the best aspects of this loyalty scheme is that you have a choice how to use the bonus funds you’ve accumulated. You’ll have the following three options:
BetRivers makes it easy for you to track your progress and know exactly where you stand, using a “social” style interface.
Sports betting at retail locations and online became legal in Colorado after “Proposition DD” passed a referendum in November 2019. This followed Bill 19-1327, which set out a legal framework and tax rules for sports betting. This was made possible by the overturning of the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in 2018 — which returned jurisdiction over sports betting to the state level.
Like all sports betting brands that wish to enter the Centennial State, BetRivers is required to partner with a local casino to receive its license. BetRivers is partners with Triple Crown Casinos in Cripple Creek. With 33 casinos eligible to apply for licenses, Colorado residents will enjoy a wide choice of online sportsbook brands.
The BetRivers Sportsbook in Colorado has an all-action feel.
To the left of the page you’ll find a bold menu with a blue background, with links to your account, the most popular upcoming action and a full list of all of the sports detailed below.
The center section is where you’ll find the betting markets. This section isn’t as wide as you would find at other sportsbooks. It only displays the money line odds by default (other sites will also feature totals and the point spread). Clicking on the “More Wagers” option will bring up the extended list of betting markets.
When you click on a selection, the bet slip will pop up from the bottom of the screen. With one selection, a single bet is your only option. Adding additional picks to the bet slip will add parlay and round robin tabs (the parlay tab will be selected by default).
In the right-hand column you’ll find the newsfeed, which displays achievements and big wins from other bettors. “Big Sports Wins” are displayed, which tell you the username of the player and how many times the stake the player won. You’ll also see “Winning Streaks.” This shows users (by username, not real name), who have won five-plus bets in a row. This adds an element of competition to the site, as well as a social aspect that you will not find with other sportsbooks.
BetRivers is available for Android users in app form. However, iPhone / iPad customers will need to download the GeoGuard app to verify their location, then access the site through their web browsers.
You’ll find a number of available betting options at BetRivers, covering all of the most popular wager types you’ll find online. Here are the main bet types:
At BetRivers, you’ll find one of the longest lists of different sports offered by any sportsbook in Colorado. Here’s what you can expect:
The focus of BetRivers is on the big North American sports leagues and the best of the college action. Every regular season game in the NFL, the NBA, Major League Baseball and the NHL features a wide selection of markets. The biggest college games in football and basketball are also covered. Enjoy additional markets when the playoffs come around. You’ll also find extensive futures betting on all of the divisional races, conference championships and the national championships in each sport. Look out for prop betting in the Super Bowl and March Madness.
Soccer is the most populous sport at BetRivers, with markets available on games taking place all over the world on a daily basis. Major League Soccer and the World Cup will be of particular interest to home fans. All of the major tennis and golf tours feature extensive betting, including further markets when the grand slams and the majors take center stage. In motor sports you’ll find full betting coverage of both NASCAR and Formula One. In combat sports, both mixed martial arts and boxing offer full coverage of the major bouts in each of the sports.
While most of the betting action will take place on the sports listed above, many Colorado based bettors will enjoy wagering on some of the other sports listed. Cycling, handball, snooker, darts, rugby league, rugby union, Australian rules football and more all feature, giving something for everyone.
There are four ways to make a deposit or withdraw from your BetRivers account.
Your first port of call should you have any questions should be the extensive “Help Center” tab. This is divided into a series of sections such as “Registration,” “My Accounts” and “Deposits” with a series of articles under each detailing all of the FAQs.
Failing this, the best option is to click the support button in the bottom left corner of the screen. This opens a live chat window where you’ll be met by a member of the customer service team, who will talk you through any questions you might have. Within the help center you’ll also find an email link, if you’d rather use that method. Both the live chat and the email options are open from 9.30 a.m. through to 2 a.m.
The approach to responsible gaming by BetRivers is detailed within its own section in the help center. Questions such as “Do I have a gambling problem” are discussed, with links to responsible gambling organizations.
Practical measures offered include setting limits on deposits, spending and the amount of time you spend on the site. You can also choose to have a “cool-down” period by self-suspending yourself from the site for between three and 30 days. In extreme cases, you can also self-exclude from the site completely.
BetRivers is a solid addition to the sportsbook scene in Colorado. As a new customer, you’ll welcome the 100% matched bonus up to $250. The social style loyalty program — iRush Rewards — is among the better sportsbook reward schemes.
This online sportsbook has a clean interface, while the scrolling display of winners and achievements adds a sense of community not found elsewhere. With every major sporting event on the site, BetRivers has you covered.
