BetRivers Louisiana Announces Official Partnership With New Orleans Pelicans

BetRivers Sportsbook is now an official partner of the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans. Rush Street Interactive, an online sports betting and casino company, disclosed details of the partnership in an announcement earlier this week.

The collaboration brings BetRivers signage throughout the Smoothie King Center, including the front row of courtside seats. The section for courtside ticket holders dubbed “The Chairman’s Club,” has been rebranded to the “BetRivers Chairman Lounge.” The seating section also includes multiple betting odds boards.

“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,” Pelicans President Dennis Lauscha said. “BetRivers delivers the high-quality experience that these fans expect and deserve. We appreciate the support of RSI and BetRivers and look forward to their increased presence in the Smoothie King Center.”

In addition to the BetRivers signage throughout the Smoothie King Center, BetRivers also announced the addition of two brand ambassadors that Louisiana sports fans are familiar with: Brandon Stokley and Jimmy Ott.

He went on to win a pair of Super Bowls as a wide receiver in the NFL. Stokley’s NFL career spanned from 1999 to 2013 playing for the Ravens, Colts, Broncos, Seahawks, and Giants. He has 397 catches, 5,339 receiving yards, and 39 touchdowns to his name.

Ott is an LSU Alumni and has been a Baton Rouge sports radio and television personality since 1990. He currently has a show titled Jimmy Ott’s Gametime on ESPN Radio Baton Rouge that is sponsored by BetRivers.
