PITTSBURGH — Jan. 31, 2014 — Players don’t have to travel all the way to Sochi to receive a bronze, silver or gold medal. In February, Rivers Casino Rush Rewards members will have the chance to medal and win a share of the WINter Games $250,000 progressive giveaway. Everyone will be a winner this month with exciting promotions, live entertainment and more at Rivers.
