Sports Betting

BetRivers Sportsbook is an official partner of the New Orleans Pelicans.  

To demonstrate RSI’s support for Louisiana’s NBA team, BetRivers signage appears throughout the Smoothie King Center including the front row of courtside seats. The exclusive Chairman’s Club, for courtside ticket holders, has been rebranded to become the BetRivers Chairman Lounge and updated with live odds boards.

“The Pelicans partnership and BetRivers Chairman Lounge is an RSI investment to enhance fans’ watching and wagering experiences inside the Smoothie King Center, as well as emphasize our commitment to Louisiana sports throughout the state,” said Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI. “We are thrilled to have our BetRivers sportsbook in the Bayou State and are proud to be the official partner of the New Orleans Pelicans, with its core of young, talented players and exciting future.”

“New Orleans and Louisiana are home to some of the most passionate sports fans in the country, and it was important for us to partner with an online sportsbook such as BetRivers that delivers the high-quality experience that these fans expect and deserve,” said Dennis Lauscha, president of the New Orleans Pelicans. “We appreciate the support of RSI and BetRivers and look forward to their increased presence in the Smoothie King Center.”

BetRivers is also pleased to welcome to its family of sportsbook Brand Ambassadors two Louisiana natives: former NFL wide receiver and winner of two Super Bowls, Brandon Stokley, and Louisiana media veteran, Jimmy Ott.
