PHILADELPHIA and PITTSBURGH, May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has partnered with AGS (NYSE:AGS) to become the first online casino operator in Pennsylvania to premier the global entertainment company's fan-favorite games on its BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com sites.
The first AGS slot game that launched in Pennsylvania was Pharaoh Sun™, which is already a player favorite on the PlaySugarHouse.com online casino site in New Jersey. Other player-favorite AGS games Jade Wins™, Longhorn Jackpots™, and Olympus Strikes™ will be available for Pennsylvania players in the next several days.
"We are excited to be the first online operator in Pennsylvania to add AGS game content to our engaging library of top quality and well-known casino games," said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, which operates BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com. "AGS' games online deliver the identical looks, features, and play mechanics as their popular land-based games."
Pharaoh Sun™ is an Egyptian-themed five-reel game that features a King Tut headdress and other classic images that perfectly capture the spirit of Ancient Egypt. The Tut image is the highest-paying symbol. Other paying symbols include a sphinx, a cat, and various Egyptian-themed objects. A wild beetle symbol offers players free spins. A jackpot bonus round is another treasure players can unearth in the desert of ancient times.
"We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Rush Street Interactive to Pennsylvania, where they are an established market leader and one of the top online gaming operators, following our successful online launch in New Jersey and on RushBet.co in Colombia, and our long-established relationship as a land-based game supplier," said Matt Reback, Executive Vice President at AGS. "We are proud to provide online versions of our proven, popular land-based games for the PlaySugarhouse.com and BetRivers.com online casino sites as they continue to grow and expand into new markets."
Both BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com currently offer a match of a new customer's first deposit, up to $250. The award-winning sites/apps also focus on offering high quality and knowledgeable customer service; great deposit/withdraw methods and quick payouts, while treating every player with honesty and respect.
These new AGS slot games join a continually growing and already robust online casino catalog that now contains over 100 real-money slots, featuring online exclusive slots as well as progressive jackpot slots, along with exciting table games and video poker variants on BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com in Pennsylvania.
