The all-new BetRivers Lounge at Pittsburgh Penguins’ PPG Paints Arena opened at the weekend, just in time for the New Jersey Devils game. The sportsbook-style lounge, located on the FedEx level, third floor, section 119, is the result of an exclusive deal struck late last year between Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers.com.
The new space features two rows of ticketed bowl seats, a lounge area with club chairs, a generous bar top, hi-definition video screens, and streaming odds boards. The BetRivers Lounge at PPG Paints Arena is designed to elevate the game-day experience by integrating the BetRivers retail sportsbook and online casino into the arena.
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and BetRivers.com are the Official Casino and the Official Sportsbook of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Guests 21 or older who have BetRivers.com accounts can watch and wager on Penguins games and other sporting events from the lounge, anywhere in PPG Paints Arena, at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, and elsewhere throughout the Commonwealth.
All wagering is via personal mobile devices using the BetRivers Pennsylvania app. In addition, while in attendance, in-game betting allows fans to continue to stay engaged throughout the game.
“The BetRivers Lounge is yet another investment delivered under our Rivers partnership to enhance fan experiences inside PPG Paints Arena,” said David Morehouse, President and CEO of the Penguins. “The lounge will provide a safe and exciting space for fans to enjoy an innovative and multimedia experience while attending Pens games and other live sporting events year-round.”
Mattias Stetz, CEO of Rush Street Interactive, stated: “The BetRivers Lounge symbolizes our strong partnership with the Penguins, five-time Stanley Cup champions, and our commitment to Pittsburgh sports generally. The new lounge enhances the experience of watching live and wagering in real-time. We are proud to be the exclusive sportsbook of this winning franchise.”
Rush Street Interactive was the first online gaming company to launch online sports wagering in Pennsylvania. It also operates online sportsbooks in Illinois, New Jersey, Indiana, Virginia, Iowa, Michigan, and Colorado.
