Laying claim to the precious dollars of the investment is a diverse selection of event-focused endeavors. Most notably among them is the unveiling of the sublime Bridges Ballroom. The newly minted entertainment venue – enveloped in a sprawling 7,044-square-feet of second-floor space, intoxicates the senses with panoramic views of the mesmerizing Ohio River from its balcony. A design masterstroke that is certain to tantalize event-goers thirsting for an envelope of luxurious surroundings. Further elevating the allure of the Bridges Ballroom is the ingenious design feature that transforms the magnificent lounge into three smaller rooms — ranging from the intimate 1,151-square-foot Fort Duquesne Room to the expansive 4,036-square-foot Fort Pitt Room.

Not to be outdone, four private conference rooms, exciting new additions, now grace the premises. These versatile spaces cater to executives and boards, offering a range of formats to accommodate their varied needs. Rivers Pittsburgh’s general manager, Bud Green, enthused about the casino’s jewel amongst the city’s professional sports stadiums and other North Shore attractions. He anticipated the events calendar filling up quickly, especially with the new slots and dates for the conferences, weddings, and special events that are offered.

Not stopping at expanding its event space, the casino has also bestowed some generous attention to its gaming heart. The largest property space, a majestic 25,000-square-foot Event Center, received an elegant refurbishment, priming it for sold-out performances from stellar acts as diverse as Boyz II Men and K.C. & The Sunshine Band and media sensation Theresa Caputo of “Long Island Medium” fame.

Moreover, in a nod to loyal high-rollers, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh christened the Black Card Room – an ultra-exclusive retreat for Rush Rewards Players Club elite members. This opulent haven, which unfurled its grandeur at the close of 2023, rewards those accumulating a minimum of 25,000 tier points in six months.

In celebrating its 15 years as part of Pennsylvania’s vibrant casino landscape, and its commendable hold of a 10% market share in the state’s competitive industry, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh shows no signs of losing its luster, ensuring the next 15 years promise more thrilling games, epic performances, and unforgettable experiences.
