Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has announced the launch of its RushBet online casino and sportsbook in Mexico in partnership with media conglomerate Grupo Multimedios.
Under the 25-year agreement, RSI will operate both its online casino and sportsbook across the country, utilising an online gambling licence held by a subsidiary of Mexico-based Grupo Multimedios.
The new partnership will also enable RSI to leverage Grupo Multimedios’ media assets and distribution channels for promotional and content integration.
The RushBet.mx website and accompanying RushBet mobile application will allow players over the age of 18 in Mexico to access a selection of online casino games including more than 350 slots and table games.
Players will also be able to place bets on a wide range of leading sporting events such as the Mexican Liga MX top division of club football, as well as North America’s National Football League, Major League Baseball and National Basketball Association.
RSI was the first US operator to launch a regulated online sportsbook in Latin America when it rolled out RushBet.co in Colombia 2018. The latest launch also makes RSI the first US-based gambling business to go live in Mexico.
“We are thrilled to build upon RSI’s track record of success in Latin America to now bring the millions of Mexican gaming enthusiasts into the expanding RushBet community,” RSI chief executive Richard Schwartz said.
“Grupo Multimedios is one of the most respected media enterprises in Mexico, making them a great partner for us to launch and accelerate our online gaming operations in the country.
“Mexico represents an attractive market opportunity, with a population of more than 130 million. When combined with Colombia’s population of 50 million, this new market greatly expands RSI’s offering in Latin America.”
Grupo Multimedios co-chief executive Angel Cong added: “It is very exciting to launch with RSI and bring the first major US-based online operator to Mexico. RSI has proven to be successful in the North American and Colombian online casino and sportsbook markets, and together we will leverage our media assets to achieve the same in Mexico.
“Our goal is to work with RSI to create the best and most trusted online casino and sports betting experience in the Mexican market.”
