If you're a Pens fan and have been torn between watching the game at PPG Paints Arena or taking in the atmosphere are Rivers Casino, you'll soon be able to experience both worlds.
Rivers Casino and the Pittsburgh Penguins are teaming up to launch a sportsbook-style lounge at PPG Paints Arena.
The casino and BetRivers.com will become the “Official Casino and Official Sportsbook of the Pittsburgh Penguins.”
The deal was announced on Wednesday. “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 lounge will feature luxury seating so fans can watch Pens games live, a bar with additional seating and a number of televisions screens.
Several rows from section 120 in the lower bowl of the arena will be removed to make room for the new lounge area.
“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.”
