SugarHouse Review

Rebranded Aug. 2022 to BetRivers NJ

Solid ownership with Rush Gaming

iRush Loyalty Awards, Awesome Odds

Odds Interface a bit clunky

SugarHouse Sportsbook was one of the first legal sports betting operations in the nation and continued to prove itself as one of the best right up until Aug. 2022 when it rebranded as BetRivers New Jersey.

Offering a generous bonus structure ($250 with no strings attached), a staggering array of sports betting and casino options and a quick and easy signup process, SugarHouse was a top-rated New Jersey sportsbook option and now continues on under the Rush Gaming banner, according to our experts here at NFP.


SugarHouse launched in 2016 as an online casino partnership with The Golden Nugget of Atlantic City. When sports betting federal prohibition was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2018, SugarHouse New Jersey was ready with a sports betting partnership (which has since moved to Monmouth Park for its online sportsbook affiliation).

Rush Gaming continues to aggressively pursue licenses and partnerships allowing it to expand as more states legalize and regulate sports betting. We expect to promote these brands with confidence.

In mid-2022, the decision was made to move Sugarhouse and its New Jersey customer base fully into the BetRivers family. Same ownership, same commitment to fairness ands customer service, just a different name – but one that everyone recognizes and respects in BetRivers NJ.



Not all bonuses are created equal and some flashy, big-number welcome bonuses often have lots of conditions attached. Not so at SugarHouse where a $250 deposit match with a 1x rollover (you only need to wager the bonus amount one time before it is available for withdrawal) is one of the best in the industry. Use bonus code 250MATCH.

Two Security Questions

Where is SugarHouse Sportsbook legal?

SugarHouse operates its mobile sportsbook in New Jersey. In Pennsylvania, the BetRivers brand is being promoted and the SugarHouse name will slowly be phased out there. Rush Street Gaming, based in Chicago Illinois and manager of multiple casinos and sportsbooks, owns SugarHouse as well as BetRivers brands.

Players do not have to be residents of the state, but they do need to be within state boundaries when placing bets. The location can be confirmed via your mobile device’s GPS services, or a feature on your laptop computer.

Can I deposit or make withdrawals outside New Jersey?

Yes, customers have access to their accounts wherever they are located. But you can only place a wager when you are physically within the state boundaries. Their technology can locate you and permit or block you based on location.

That means if you won money while on brief trip through New Jersey or Pennsylvania, you can request a withdrawal even after you’ve left.

What are deposit options at SugarHouse?

SugarHouse offers online banking, credit cards and Paypal as the most convenient methods of making a deposit. Credit cards can sometimes be tricky, but are usually fine. Online banking (ACH) is super easy.

You can also make cash deposits at the casino, if you happen to be at SugarHouse locations (The Golden Nugget Casino or SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.)

There is also a SugarHouse Play+ card, where you can register and receive a card. This takes a few weeks, but offers speedier withdrawals after you have the card. So some new customers deposit with online banking whike simultaneously applying for t he Play+ card.

What promo code do I need to use?

As mentioned above, 250MATCH ensures you get this generous perk.

What is the legal betting age at SugarHouse?

21 is the standard betting age for online sports wagering in the US, but it does vary state by state.

Can I bet on football and other sports at SugarHouse?

NFL, college football, pro and college basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, MMA – you name it, you can probably bet it. And SugarHouse will offer point spreads, over-unders, moneyline, props, futures, teasers and other forms of wagering (including live in-game betting).

Are refer-a-friend bonuses available? How much and how do I do it?

It’s up to $500 for referring a friend which is a great bonus and its pretty easy to do. Choose the ‘refer a friend’ option and you submit your own email and info and the info for your friend (or friends). If your friends make a deposit of $50 or more within 30 days, you receive a card that will reveal your prize for sending a player to the sportsbook.

What kinds of phone and computer devices can I use?

Just about any type of current device will work, as bettors can use iOS and Android devices, along with the standard Mac or desktop PC setups. SugarHouse also offers a free apps to run on the same platforms.
