Pittsburgh’s Rivers Casino has withdrawn its application for online gambling, leaving the Pennsylvania Gaming Board to offer up the three additional interactive gaming certificates that have become available.
The withdrawal includes requests for peer-to-peer interactive gaming; non-peer-to-peer simulating slot machines; and non-peer-to-peer simulating banked table games played against the house.
A total of 10 certificates are now available for igaming in the US state: four in poker, three in slots and three in table games. Licences have been priced at US$10m.
“Rivers Casino Pittsburgh intends to provide igaming to Western Pennsylvania and the Commonwealth, but we’re taking additional time to explore the various options for doing so," said the casino's Jack Horner. "Rivers is actively pursuing a sports wagering certificate to offer both land-based and mobile sports betting.”
