Hacksaw makes US entry in West Virginia via RSI

Hacksaw Gaming has announced its entry into the US iGaming arena after agreeing a content distribution deal with Rush Street Interactive (RSI).

This agreement sees a series of popular Hacksaw online slots integrated into the operator’s BetRivers brand through Light & Wonder’s distribution network.

Kicking off the partnership, gritty 2022 creation The Bowery Boys and flagship title Wanted Dead or a Wild are now available to play at the West Virginia platform of BetRivers.

An assortment of hit Hacksaw games like Toshi Video Club, Stack’em, Joker Bombs, Gladiator Legends and Hand of Anubis will be added over the coming weeks.

Hacksaw Gaming’s maiden US venture marks a significant step forward as part of a broader strategy to grow its international footprint, adding West Virginia to the studio’s list of certified jurisdictions that also includes MGA, UKGC, Romania, Greece, Netherlands, Latvia, Ontario, Italy and Sweden.

CCO of Hacksaw Gaming, Gabrielle Star, said: “Today’s news represents a huge milestone for us. We are overjoyed to make our long-awaited US bow with RSI’s BetRivers, one of the leading casino brands in the states, capping months of hard work behind the scenes.

“As one of the first few states to adopt a forward-leaning approach towards iGaming, West Virginia is the ideal market to begin our US journey and we have no doubt that our extensive game library will resonate with its BetRivers players.

Rush Street Interactive’s CEO, Richard Schwartz, added: “We are so pleased to extend our partnership with Hacksaw Gaming into the US, after our successful launch with them in Ontario last month.

“We are thrilled to further enhance our industry leading online casino portfolio and entertainment experience at BetRivers in West Virginia, by adding Hacksaw’s exciting mix of new and popular casino games.”
