As Rivers Casino Pittsburgh gears up to mark its fifteenth anniversary this August, it envelopes the city in a wave of excitement with the completion of a stunning $6.6 million renovation. The opulence and sophistication of Chicago’s Rush Street Gaming shines through in the refined touch they’ve brought to their Pittsburgh resort.

In a grand reimagining, the casino’s fabric has been interwoven with luxury, especially within its event spaces. The jewel in the crown of the renovation is the Bridges Ballroom, a majestic 7,044-square-foot expanse bathed in the ambient glow of the Ohio River. Featuring a versatile balcony that offers a sweeping panorama, the Ballroom adapts to the grandeur or intimacy required by any gathering, subdividing into spaces like the cozy Fort Duquesne Room or the expansive Fort Pitt Room.

Adding to this, an ensemble of four bespoke private meeting rooms presents a battleground for executive decisions and board meetings, all customizable to the nature of their rendezvous.

Bud Green, the general manager, keenly notes, “With [the city’s professional sports] stadiums and other attractions on the North Shore – not to overlook our own enticing gaming floor, BetRivers Sportsbook, and the elegant Landing Hotel – our events calendar is packed tight.” He’s thrilled to roll out the red carpet in these newly minted spaces for a host of events, be it corporate conferences, dream weddings, or distinctive celebrations.

The Event Center itself, sprawling at 25,000 square feet and known for hosting sell-out events from icons like Boyz II Men and K.C. & The Sunshine Band, now boasts a refreshed countenance post-renovation.

For the guests who flock to the casino’s thrill, the Pittsburgh venue has doubled down on player amenities. With a Starbucks offering a caffeine jolt right at the entrance, it’s clear Rivers Casino is raising the bar. A temple to the elite, the Black Card Room, unfurled its allure at the year’s end, providing an “ultra-exclusive” sanctuary for the crème de la crème of Rush Rewards Players Club members.

Membership to this echelon is a testament to loyalty — a vault that unlocks after amassing 25,000 tier points in a mere six months, with each tier point a toast to their commitment across slots, sports bets, and table games.

The spoils of the Black Card Room are indulgent – complimentary tropical escapades to Atlantis in the Bahamas, privileged valet services, and regal stays at the Rio Las Vegas. It is a world where rewards manifest in exquisite tastes and ventures beyond imagination.

With its slots bringing in a robust $267.3 million and its table games capturing $87.2 million from the eagerness of play, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh championed over 10% of Pennsylvania’s casino market in the preceding year, propelling the state’s 17 commercial casinos to a combined annual gross gaming revenue of $3.435 billion.

This monumental preparation for celebration, exemplified in both aesthetics and accommodation, positions Rivers Casino Pittsburgh not just as a beacon of entertainment in Pennsylvania, but as an icon of stately indulgence for the most discerning patrons and guests.
