BetRivers App Review
The online section of the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh opened up for sports betting admirers in Pennsylvania and Indiana. Being a sister site of another US-popular sportsbook SugarHouse, BetRivers designed an intuitive app compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It is powered by Kambi, one of the most recognizable brands in the industry, both in the United States and overseas.
How to Download the BetRivers Sports App
Before the entire download process, iOS users must first install the GeoGuard Location Validator app, available in the Apple Store. This is because BetRivers use a geo-location technology to determine the place where you are using the app. Only those who are physically located in Indiana or Pennsylvania can place real-money wagers through the BetRivers app.
Once we got this covered, it’s time to go through a short and simple download process.
How to download BetRivers Sports app on iOS devices
- Right upon installing the GeoGuard Location Validator app, you should visit the Apple Store once again to look for the BetRivers app
- The download process can’t get easier as you just need to click the “Download” button and follow the easy and straightforward procedure
- Once the app is downloaded, you can launch it and access your account or create a new one
How to download BetRivers Sports app on Android devices
- Android users need to visit the BetRivers web site from their favorite mobile browser as it is not present in the Play Store due to Google’s gambling restrictions
- Anyhow, the process is still very simple as you should just search for the small Android icon when on their web page
- Once you find it, just click the “Download” option to get it on your Android-powered device
Technological wizards Kambi stay behind the BetRivers app. Given it is SugarHouse’s sister-site, those who have previously owned a SugarHouse sports app should be able to download BetRivers without any problems. For the first-time users, here is the minimum technical criteria your respective device needs to meet for the app to run without any bugs:
BetRivers Sports app – iOS version software requirements
|Software compatibility||iOS 9.0 and higher|
|Devices compatibility||iPhone; iPad; iPod touch|
BetRivers Sports app – Android version software requirements

BetRivers App Look and Feel
The overall experience we had while using the app is more than positive. Kambi packed all the bells and whistles creating an easy-to-use app suitable to both novice and experienced bettors. We found it quick and responsive without any kind of lags which is the most important feature as nobody wants to suddenly get logged out for no reason moments before placing a wager.
The app has an extensive navigation menu which includes the full list of sports as well as the live-betting offer. We did not face any trouble doing the banking as the cashier worked just fine for both deposits and withdrawals.
Game/Odds selection vs Desktop
Everything you would expect a modern sportsbook to have can be found with BetRivers. The app is a genuine copycat of their desktop page with all the options accordingly adjusted to the small screens to make the betting on the go experience exceptional. They are quick to update the lines in real-time which allows bettors to enjoy the live betting to the max.
The mainstream US leagues get the main spots on the screen, but BetRivers also offer markets for the less popular events such as motorsports, golf, tennis, MMA, boxing, rugby, cricket, Aussie Rules, etc.
Apart from the industry-standard markets like moneyline, spreads and total, BetRivers bring an exciting array of future bets. Here are some examples:
- The draft and season props in the NFL
- Conference winners in the NHL
- Player of the Year bets in the NBA
- Huge selection of the World Series lines in the MLB
The BetRivers Sports features and bet
It is hard to underline the core features as the app has everything a genuine sports punter could ask for. Anyhow, here is what we listed as the most important facts about the app:
- Welcome Incentives – BetRivers attract the new customers with a warm welcome bonus giving away 100% return up to $250 on your initial deposit. The only condition is to wager it just once within 30 days.
- Futures – The “Futures” market has grown in popularity significantly over the last couple of years and BetRivers clearly recognized it as they offer a wide array of such type of bets
- Odds Boosts – There is a rotating menu showing special odds boosts and it changes on a daily basis.
- Hot welcome bonus
- On-going promotions
- Clean and simple layout
- The rich list of betting markets
- The “futures” bets
- The live streaming feature
- Live chat available 24/7

Can I download the BetRivers app without the GeoGuard Location Validator?
No, you first need to install the validator to be able to download the BetRivers app since the app uses a geo-location technology.

We found the odds to be in accordance with the industry standards. The pricing is better for some matches but worse for others.

At the moment their sportsbook app is only available in Pennsylvania and Indiana.
