PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Today was the first day of what's expected to be a long history of sports waging here at Rivers Casino Portsmouth. Saturday's soft opening was the second of two. Just like the first one, all earnings, besides BetRivers Sportsbook, are being donated to charities rather than retained by the casino. Right in time for some of the largest sports betting opportunities we see every year. 'With this BetRivers Sportsbook at Rivers, now Hampton Roads can get in on some of that action just in time for NFL playoffs, the Super Bowl and March Madness,' said Tim Drehkoff, CEO, Rush Street Gaming and Rivers Casino Portsmouth Political prowess was in attendance for the ceremonial first sports wager as well.
