BetRivers is an online sportsbook and casino. It caters to an American audience, but more importantly, it is owned, licensed and operated within the United States. That provides American gamblers with a great deal of peace of mind, and it comes as little surprise that BetRivers has the reputation that it does. There are a number of ways to access the sportsbook. Among the most popular are the apps for Android and iOS. In this article, we will review those apps and discuss using some of the more prominent features.


The States Where BetRivers Is Legal

Since BetRivers is owned, licensed and operated within the U.S., it has to respect the laws of each individual state. It is not currently legal in most states but fully supported in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. That covers some major population areas that had not previously had access to a U.S.-based sportsbook. BetRivers is also legal in New Jersey, but it is done through SugarHouse casino and sportsbook, which is owned and operated by BetRivers. This article will not discuss the PlaySugarHouse app specifically, but know that most of the details provided here are relevant to that app as well. Note that BetRivers will allow you to use the app even if you are in a state not currently supported, but you will only have access to free-to-play games and activities.

How to Download and Install the BetRivers iOS App

Downloading and installing the BetRivers iOS app on an Apple device is rather straightforward. There a few ways to do it but the simplest way is to navigate to and select your appropriate state. The site will then provide you a link to the appropriate app for your state on the App Store. Tap to download, and after you accept, the app will automatically download and configure itself.


How to Download and Install the BetRivers Android App

While it is not hard by any means, downloading the BetRivers app for Android is not as straightforward because the Google Play store does not currently allow apps associated with real money wagering. Visit and select your appropriate state. The site will provide you a link to the APK, which you will have to download to your device. Note that you will need to enable the setting to allow app installations from unknown sources. You can do this through the settings or when prompted. The BetRivers app will now will be configured. You may have to launch it manually if it does not auto-start.

The BetRivers website is fully functional and mobile-friendly. You can alternatively do everything from


How to Register an Account Via the App and Enter Your Promo Code

When the app runs for this first time, it will prompt you to create a new account. Account creation is done through several phases. The first will request a username, a password and an AFFILIATE CODE. We recommend entering the code FREEBET, which we will discuss more in the next section. Tap to continue. The next phase will request your full name, mailing address, date of birth and some other personal details. Tap to continue.


The final phase requires you to enter your mobile number, provide your SSN, create several security questions and tick the box to confirm that you agree to the Terms of Service. When you have completed those steps, you account will be created, and you will be automatically logged in.


Making a Deposit and Redeeming Promo Code FREEBET

It is important that you enter your promo code during the account creation phase. If you missed that step, you will still have access to a welcome bonus but one that the sportsbook dictates for you.

Make sure that location services are active on your device, or the deposit will fail. Tap the cashier, and then, tap deposit. You will have a number of deposit methods available, including most major credit cards and debit cards. You can make a deposit through online banking. You can acquire a BetRivers Play+ Card, which is an option to avoid fees on credit cards. You can also opt to Pay with Cash, and the app will provide you the closest location to your home where you can make a deposit in person.


The minimum deposit at BetRivers is $5. Once your deposit posts, the sportsbook will match your deposit up to $250. If, for instance, you deposited $25, then you will have access to a $25 bonus. All you need to do at this point to claim the bonus is play through your initial $25. The bonus will automatically post to your account. This is much more user-friendly than the usual sportsbook welcome bonus.


How to Place a Bet

The left-hand menu lists all of the sports that currently have wagers available. Select the sport that interests you. You can peruse upcoming matches, or tap the Live Right Now option to see in-play betting opportunities. In either case, the filter feature lets you narrow what you see down to what interests you.

To place a bet, find an event and outcome that you would like to wager on. Tap the chosen odds to add it to your bet slip. You can then set your bet amount, and the bet slip will automatically update. If you would like to create a parlay, you can add up to 12 individual outcomes.

Confirm that your bet slip is correct. Then, tap the PLACE BET button. Your bet slip will be processed, and if it is processed successfully, it will be added to your My Bet History. This is where you can monitor the bet prior to and during the game and where you will be able to interact with in-play betting.


How to Make a Withdrawal

Note that you cannot withdraw bonus money. You can only withdraw money that you deposited or won. You must have at least $10 in your account to make a withdrawal, and that is the minimum withdrawal.

When you are ready to continue, tap the cashier option. Tap the withdrawal option. The app will display your balance and how much of it is withdrawable. Select your payment method. Options include PayPal, online banking, check by mail, BetRivers Play+ card and Cash @ Casino Cage.


Enter how much your want to withdraw, and then, tap to continue. BetRivers will process your withdrawal. Note that how long it takes to receive your money will depend on the method. Withdrawals made to PayPal, a Play+ card or Casino Cage post immediately. Online banking can take 2 to 5 business days, and check by mail can take up to 14 business days.


Special Features

Note that additional bonuses will become available as you continue to play. Be aware that all bonuses are 1X, which means that you only need play through the deposit and the bonus once. There are no crazy wagering requirements to be concerned with. Enrollment in the loyalty program is automatic with your first real deposit.

You can check your status through the app in addition to accessing the Bonus Store where you can use any bonus points earned to claim various prizes. Bonus points are earned with each real money bet and can be used to claim bonus money and physical prizes. As you continue to earn bonus points, your loyalty rank will increase, which will result in you earning bonus points at a higher rate.
