BetRivers Sportsbook NY Review
BetRivers is the online arm of Pennsylvania’s Rivers Casino, the first legal land-based casino in that State, acquiring its name in 2009 to reflect a change in ownership and its geographical location at the intersection of the two rivers that form the Ohio River! As part of its online betting attractions it’s now added a sportsbook to its site, giving bettors in NY access to a one-stop shop for their wagering entertainment. Whilst at the time of review it’s yet to join the company of other licensed NJ online sportsbooks we suspect it’s only a matter of time before BetRivers does just that, so let’s see what it currently offers to tease what New Jersey residents may soon enjoy.

Layout & Usability
BetRivers Sportsbook is built on the sold foundation of Kambi’s well regarded sportsbook platform, giving it the advantage of a solid ‘back end’ that’s already established a healthy following in the industry. For bettors that translates into a clean, well-developed layout that makes researching available markets and tailoring your virtual bet slip to your precise requirements a very intuitive and enjoyable experience.
There’s minimal use of graphics to clutter the view, and whilst that can make the initial look of the site seem somewhat unexciting, we think you’ll soon appreciate the simplicity and the focus on what really matters when sports betting online. The simplicity also pays dividends when considering the huge choice of events you can bet on at BetRivers Sportsbook – the range of domestic and international sporting events at your fingertips should satisfy even the most demanding sports fan.
Portable punting is an essential element of any online sportsbook these days, and BetRivers meets that with its own native Android app, available for download direct from its main site. But iOS for Apple heads? Well, a native app is on its way apparently, but currently you’ll need to resort to using your iOS device’s browser to enjoy this sportsbook on an iPhone or iPad. That’s no deal breaker in our view, since the desktop site scales perfectly on mobile device browsers too, so we can’t make a fuss about the lack of a native iOS app at this time in all fairness.
Mobile & Tablet
BetRivers New York Sportsbook offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
Deposit Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, ACH Transfer, PayPal, Neteller and Bank Transfer
Withdrawal Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Neteller and Bank Transfer
BetRivers New York Sportsbook offers excellent support from 9:30am-2am EST, 7 days a week. BetRivers Sportsbook uses Live Chat and Email.
BetRivers Sportsbook clearly has a competitive advantage in its native New York, but on the strength of what we’ve seen it should also draw plenty of attention in New Jersey if and when it’s licensed to operate in that State. Our view is that it is well worth keeping an eye on this operator for the future if you can’t yet access it, especially as a single account here also opens the virtual doors to play its nicely stocked online casino as part of the package
