Rush Street Interactive to power Delaware Lottery’s igaming offering

Last week, it was announced that Rush Street Interactive (RSI), the remaining bidder for the contract to power the Delaware State Lottery’s igaming offering, had been selected as the state’s vendor.

RSI will provide its igaming solution for an initial five-year term. This is renewable for five additional one-year terms, depending on regulatory approvals.

Certain reports suggested RSI and 888 Holdings had been competing for the tender. However, RSI was in fact the only remaining bidder for the contract, after 888 exited the process in May.
