Rush Street Interactive has officially debuted its BetRivers Lounge at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ PPG Paints Arena, which made its maiden appearance at the weekend’s 4-2 triumph over the New Jersey Devils.
Last year, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and Rush Street Interactive’s BetRivers announced an exclusive deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins to build a sportsbook-style lounge at the facility.
Designed to elevate the game-day experience by integrating BetRivers, the retail sportsbook and online casino, into the arena, the space features two rows of ticketed bowl seats, a lounge area with club chairs, a bar top, hi-def video screens, and streaming odds boards.
“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.”
The sportsbook-style lounge at PPG Paints Arena matches the look and feel of the in-casino sportsbook at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, and is created by the same designer, DMAC Architecture of Chicago.
“The BetRivers Lounge symbolises our strong partnership with the Penguins, five-time Stanley Cup champions, and our commitment to Pittsburgh sports generally,” noted Mattias Stetz, chief operating officer of Rush Street Interactive, the operator of BetRivers.com.
“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.”
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh and BetRivers.com are the ‘Official Casino’ and the ‘Official Sportsbook’ of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
“Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is particularly proud of our longstanding relationship with the Penguins, and we’re delighted that the BetRivers Lounge is now open,” added Bill Keena, general manager of Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “The architectural renderings have come to life perfectly, and the views of the ice are terrific.”
