PHILADELPHIA — Sept. 8, 2021 — It’s down, set, bet for football fans at Rivers Casino Philadelphia’s BetRivers Sportsbook. The pro football season kicks off Thursday, Sept. 9, and Rivers Casino is the place to be all season long. Guests will enjoy sports betting offers, food and drink specials, prizes, contests and more, including a chance to win a signed Eagles jersey every Sunday.

“Football fans will love Rivers Casino’s exciting game-day atmosphere throughout the college and pro seasons,” said Justin Moore, general manager at Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “BetRivers Sportsbook will be the place to catch all the games and for guests to wager on the Eagles, as well as their favorite teams this fall.”

Birds Nest Party Pit

Every Sunday throughout the pro football season, the Birds Nest Party Pit will feature swag, prizes, drink specials and more. In the gaming pit next to the BetRivers Sportsbook, guests will enjoy playing blackjack, roulette and craps with great views of the sportsbook’s 56.5-foot by 10.5-foot LED central monitor, as well as the eight additional 80-inch flat-screen, high-definition monitors.

Also, in the Birds Nest, Rivers Casino will feature the “Birds Score, You Score!” promotion. Guests who are playing a table game with a Rush Rewards card will receive a food voucher for Jack’s Bar + Grill every time the Eagles score.

Las Vegas Allegiant Stadium Game Day Getaway Sweepstakes

Rivers Casino has teamed up with Philadelphia’s Muller, Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors of malt beverages, to offer a game day getaway to a Raiders home game. Guests who visit the Birds Nest can enter the Las Vegas Allegiant Stadium Game Day Getaway Sweepstakes, where one guest will win a trip valued at $2,200. The prize will be awarded during pro football’s championship game on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022.

BetRivers Sportsbook

Watch, wager and win big in the BetRivers Sportsbook this football season. Betting kiosks are open 24/7 and are not only in the sportsbook, but are in various locations on the casino floor, while writer windows are open during select times.

Guests will have more than one chance to score with the following sportsbook promotions for bets placed on Sundays throughout the football season:
