The new $5m BetRivers Sportsbook at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has opened this week, offering sports bettors a 5,500-square-foot space featuring high-definition TV monitors and comfortable seating at the heart of the casino’s gaming floor action.
The sports lounge includes club chairs and table seating for approximately 195 guests, who will have views of the two state-of-the-art 50.5-foot x 7-foot LED central monitors and 24 flat-screen, high-definition 86-inch monitors. The Sportsbook also includes 33 self-service betting kiosks and six betting windows. Food and beverage service is available.
Digital and in-casino sports wagering is operated by Rush Street Interactive PA, LLC, (RSI) and its affiliates.
The venue’s General Manager Bill Keena believes it will be a big draw for Steelers fans. He said: “We expect to see a lot of black and gold in our new sportsbook, today and every day. Pittsburgh’s incredibly loyal fans, who include not only guests but our own team members, are what make our BetRivers Sportsbook truly special.”
In addition to the new BetRivers Sportsbook, Rivers has also upgraded and moved its Interblock gaming section, known as Rush Table Zone, a designated area with new digital interactive touchscreen games that include the interaction of a live dealer. The area now offers a total of 55 seats featuring blackjack, roulette and baccarat.
Rush Table Zone can be found in the middle of the gaming floor, in front of the BetRivers Sportsbook bar, which is integrated with the Sportsbook but also serves the casino floor.
