Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has launched its new BetRivers.com online sportsbook which is set to be powered by Rush Street Interactive, marking a first for Pittsburgh and for Western Pennsylvania.
Punters at the Rivers’ in-casino sportsbook can now access sports betting services via mobile devices, laptops and desktops, with registration not due to be limited to state boundaries while betting activity will be.
“This summer marks Rivers Casino Pittsburgh’s tenth anniversary,” said Bill Keena, Rivers Casino general manager. “We’re celebrating one decade while planning ahead for the next. Full-service online, mobile and in-casino sportsbooks are where the industry is headed, and thanks to our Team Members, we’re already there.”
BetRivers.com begins its two-day test period as of today, with all test-bets due to be made using real money with complete features and options available—the only difference being limited hours of operation.
Pending the review and approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, 24/7 online and mobile wagering at BetRivers.com will commence immediately thereafter.
“It’s an exciting time for Pennsylvania sports fans,” said Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive. “With NFL preseason just a month away, game days this fall will be next-level.”
