Rivers Casino is one of two Pennsylvania properties owned by Rush Street Gaming. The other is SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.

Rivers is a Pittsburgh-area casino. The venue features over 2,900 slot games and roughly 100 table games. There is also a 30-table poker room.

Thanks to its parent company, Rivers is not flying blind when it comes to real-money online casinos. Rush Street Interactive launched PlaySugarHouse  in 2016.

Several Rivers customers might be familiar with the platform too, as PlaySugarHouse also has a free-to-play platform for people not located in New Jersey,

Rivers online casino platform

Like most online casino sites, PlaySugarHouse is a browser-based online casino. This means all you need to do to play the virtual tables or slots is sign up for an account. Given this is the industry standard, expect something similar from Rivers Casino.

It is worth drawing attention to the ID verification process that takes place in regulated markets. The site will need to verify your age and that you are within Pennsylvania state lines.

That process does not change from computer to computer. So, the browser-based platform gives you the ease to switch devices without any hiccups.

Rivers mobile casino PA

PlaySugarHouse features more than 300 slot titles and a range of popular table games.

Now, when it comes to mobile casino apps, we know there isn’t a Rivers Casino iOS app for Apple users. This may change in the future. Fortunately, from what we know about PlaySugarHouse, this is likely being worked on and an Apple Rivers casino app should be available within the coming months.

For Android users, if we take a look at some of the player reviews, many seem to love the simplicity of the design. As well as offering easy access to 150+ games, the mobile site has a thriving sportsbook.

If there’s one minor issue that may rear its ugly head when the Rivers mobile casino goes live: it’s stability. According to a player using the PlaySugarHouse iOS app, the login screen has been known to freeze on occasion.

“The login screen hangs sometimes so you have to double-click home and kill the app completely, restart and login,” Farka wrote.

Whether this is a problem on the mobile website isn’t clear. However, if it is, then the developers at Rivers Casino will need to address it before the platform goes live. Of course, it’s only a minor issue in the grand scheme of things.

PlaySugarHouse has a solid blueprint for Rivers Casino PA to follow. Indeed, if it can offer 150+ games, HD live streams as well as secure and efficient payouts, you should be set to enjoy a fantastic mobile betting experience.

Online games at Rivers Casino

Video poker

SugarHouse has an existing partnership with IGT, a top gaming software provider. That means, when it comes to video poker, a PA version of the client branded with the Rivers name would likely offer the same GameKing suite of games.

Offers would include:

  • Jacks or Better
  • Bonus Poker
  • Double Bonus Poker
  • Double Double Bonus Poker
  • Triple Play Draw Poker
  • Five Play Draw Poker


The video poker options may be plentiful, but when it comes to online blackjack, the pickings are slimmer on its sister site. There are two variants: One is the straightforward version of the game, and the other is called Blackjack Pro Atlantic City.

It is important to point out the NJ and PA versions of the Rush Street product may not be the same. For example, in brick-and-mortar casinos, PA regulations are significantly more stringent than other markets.


As mentioned previously, there are more than 300 online slot titles under the PlaySugarHouse banner from a long list of software providers.

The companies Rush Street works with to license titles is truly impressive:

  • Aristocrat
  • Bally
  • High 5 Games
  • IGT
  • Konami
  • NetEnt
  • NYX
  • Spin
  • WMS

Of course, we can’t just reel off a list of software developers and not tell you why their presence is notable.

For those in the know, NetEnt is regarded as one of the world’s top software suppliers. The likes of Starburst and Twin Spin are considered industry classics. However, we love the movie- and music-themed games this developer provides. Thanks to exclusive licensing deals, NetEnt partners can offer spinners such as Jimi Hendrix, Jumanji and Planet of the Apes.

We know that PlaySugarHouse has those games and, in all likelihood, Rush Street will use its partnership with NetEnt to offer them on Rivers Casino. For you, that means games with generous jackpots and bonuses but hugely entertaining action packed with famous faces and more.

Beyond NetEnt, you’ll find other major titles from leading developers. But the things we’d urge you to look out for are niche titles. Every PA online casino can offer the usual suspects; however, the ones that go beyond the norm and pick out something different will be the ones that stand out.

The SugarHouse online casino has done that with developers such as Lightning Box.

For example, take the video slot Astro Cat. This game not only has a unique 4×4 structure with four additional bonus reels, but its jackpots top 500 coins. Also, a single bet of just 1 cent will cover a whopping 1,296 pay lines. That’s not only fantastic value but a dynamic that should produce some adrenaline-inducing action.

Assuming the Rivers Online Casino in Pennsylvania takes a similar approach to slots, i.e., combining big-name titles with exotic offerings, it should become one of the state’s top destinations for spinners.

Other online games at Rivers PA Casino

You should have a few other table games to choose from. Those are:

  • Let It Ride
  • Roulette
  • Three card poker

As we’ve mentioned, you can expect to see live dealer tables thrown into the mix as well.

Evolution Gaming will no doubt form the backbone of the live dealer lobby with its selection of traditional and innovative offerings.

Firstly, roulette is available for a relatively meager 10 cents per spin. That, in comparative terms, is a lot cheaper than many live games and something Rivers Casino PA could use to satisfy the novices among you.

Moving up the ladder, you can play three-card poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ’em (which offers progressive jackpots) for 50 cents.

Baccarat is a little more expensive at $1 per round while blackjack is $5. If we’re to be critical, we’d like to see live blackjack cost a bit less if it appears at Rivers’ online casino. Although $5 might not break the bank, it does put it at a level where beginners might feel out of their depth.

For us, the one area where Rivers Casino could steal a march on its peers is roulette.

Lightning Roulette is another game which has brought a new dimension to roulette. On each spin, up to three numbers are struck with lightning. Depending on how the roulette gods feel, the strikes will add multipliers worth between 50x and 500x to the selected numbers.

If you’re lucky enough to have some chips on a lightning number, you’ll win significantly more than the standard 35:1 payout. Now, this game does have a minimum wager of $5 per round. However, the potential rewards are more than worth it. Indeed, even with $5 on a 500x lightning number, you’ll win a heady $2,500.

Rivers online casino rewards program

Currently, the VIP program is unique to PlaySugarHouse The rewards have no connection to Rush Street’s brick-and-mortar properties.

Though it is unusual not to see overlap between live and online casino rewards. So, if Rush Street launches Rivers and SugarHouse online casinos to keep up with the competition, it would at least consider tying the two together.
