The Pittsburgh Penguins’ PPG Paints Arena has formally welcomed Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers Lounge, which made its debut during the weekend’s 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils.
The Pittsburgh Penguins signed an exclusive deal with Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers last year to create a sportsbook-style lounge at the facility.
The room includes two rows of ticketed bowl seats, a lounge area with club chairs, a bar top, high-definition video screens, and streaming odds boards, all designed to enhance the game-day experience by incorporating BetRivers, the retail sportsbook and online casino, into the arena.
Enhancing fan’s experiences
David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins said: “The BetRivers Lounge is yet another investment delivered under our Rivers partnership to enhance fan experiences inside PPG Paints Arena.
“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.”
The sportsbook-style lounge at PPG Paints Arena is designed by DMAC Architecture of Chicago and fits the look and feel of the in-casino sportsbook at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh.
Commitment to Pittsburgh sports
Mattias Stetz, the chief operating officer of Rush Street Interactive, which runs BetRivers.com, said: “The BetRivers Lounge symbolises 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.”
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ ‘Official Casino’ and ‘Official Sportsbook’ are Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and BetRivers.com.
Bill Keena, general manager of Rivers Casino Pittsburgh added: “Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is particularly proud of our longstanding relationship with the Penguins, and we’re delighted that the BetRivers Lounge is now open. The architectural renderings have come to life perfectly, and the views of the ice are terrific.”
