The Penguins have named Rivers Casino the Official Casino of the franchise, while BetRivers will sponsor a sportsbook-style lounge at PPG Paints Arena.
The lounge includes two rows of seating and an area where fans can wager on mobile devices via the BetRivers Pennsylvania app.
“This is an exciting extension of our longstanding relationship with Rivers,” said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins. “The BetRivers Lounge is one of a number of projects we are undertaking at PPG Paints Arena to provide an enhanced and safe fan experience in a post-COVID environment.”
The partnership also gives Rivers Casino and BetRivers branding and advertising inside the arena.
“Rivers Casino Pittsburgh's proud partnership with the Penguins dates back to our grand opening. Besides ongoing promotions, we partnered with the Lemieux Foundation when table games debuted in 2010, and last year, when we launched the expanded BetRivers Sportsbook, Iceburgh was right by my side,” said Bill Keena, general manager of Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “The new BetRivers Lounge at PPG Paints Arena takes this longstanding relationship to a whole new level—literally.”
RSI was the first operator to launch online wagering in Pennsylvania.
