Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has launched its new $5 m continuous sportsbook, situated at the core of the event on the gaming floor of the casino.

Titled BetRivers Sportsbook, the offer is delivered alongside its digital and in-casino sports betting operator Rush Street Interactive, which as well as BetRivers.com counts Pennsylvania’s first internet and portable sportsbook, PlaySugarHouse.com, as portion of its portfolio.

The spacious 5,500-square-foot room, hailed as an “ultra-luxury games club,” has seats for 195 visitors who can experience two state-of – the-art 50.5-footx7-foot LED main screens and 24 high-definition 86-inch flat-screen displays. The Sportsbook also involves 33 stand-alone betting kiosks and six betting doors.

In conjunction with the launch of the BetRivers Sportsbook, Rivers also upgraded and moved its Interblock Gaming chapter named Rush Table Zone.

Completing a amount of digital animated touchscreens, the fresh region involves 55 rooms displaying blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

Bill Keena, Rivers Casino general manager 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.”

Rush Street Gaming features other Rivers companies in Des Plaines, Illinois and Schenectady, New York, as portion of its land-based stable alongside Philadelphia’s SugarHouse Casino.

The firm also joined with Churchill Downs Incorporated to propose a new $150 m Rivers-branded hotel for the Illinois town of Waukegan.

This supports Governor JB Pritzker’s rubber stamping of the $45 billion’ Rebuild Illinois ‘ Action Plan, which included clauses for a major gaming development. The couple highlighted the conviction that they were offering the biggest yields and the lowest danger.

Generating $90 million in voluntary gifts over a 50-year span, Rivers Casino Waukegan also has the ability to introduce “as much as $5 million more per year to Waukegan City and other local communities than other bidders.”
