Rivers Casino asks for 86 table games

March 17, 2010

PITTSBURGH - The Rivers Casino filed a petition Monday with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to operate 86 table games perhaps by early July.

If approved, players can choose poker, blackjack, craps, roulette and mini-baccarat, three-card poker, Pai Gow Poker, Texas Hold'em Bonus and the Big Six wheel game.

The request for 86 games includes 24 poker and 42 blackjack. There will be at least one $5 blackjack table on the floor at all times.

General manager Todd Moyer of Rivers Casino said, "We really think there's going to be a big demand for the old proven standard, blackjack. I think that's what people want to play," he said.

The mail table games pit will include 35 games in a smoking area in the middle of the casino floor near Levels Lounge. Another 12 table games will operate in a nonsmoking area near Ciao restaurant. Another nine tables will be installed in the high-limit slots area.

A non-smoking poker room with 24 tables will be built at the back of the casino.

The table games will create another 309 full-time jobs and 149 part-time jobs. 350 will be dealers.

All nine casinos in the state plus the new SugarHouse in Philadelphia, which opens this summer, have filed petitions to operate table games.

The gaming control board will review each petition and schedule a public hearing to take testimony on each casino plans.
