Rivers Casino Gets Virginia License

Rivers Casino Gets Virginia License

Virginia isn’t a state that’s associated with the casino industry. But that has changed recently. In April 2022 Hard Rock opened a venue, and recently the Rivers Casino finally got a license so representatives of the project can start making the project come alive.

The casino project is going to give the casino fans in the area another spot to visit. The project will also take care of sports betting fans as well as anyone looking for a fun night out with its many bars and restaurants.

The Casino Will Bring Economic Growth to the Community

New projects breathe new life into a community. They don’t only offer a variety of places people could visit, but they also create new jobs. The inception of the project is pretty complex and once it’s done it will need to be built and once it’s built it will need staff. That’s why in both stages of the project, the company behind it will need to look to the community for help.

The community is open to collaboration and getting more jobs as well as attracting tourists to their state. That’s why they voted in favor of the new projects. The Virginia Lottery Board approved the project and granted a license with a unanimous vote.

The project has been going on since December 2021. Rush Street Gaming is the company behind this project and its aim is to bring a lot of benefits to the community. The project is $300 million heavy and it brings lots of attraction. Besides an extensive casino, sports bettors will enjoy a brand new sportsbook called BetRivers once the project is done.

But this casino complex isn’t just for casino and sports betting fans. It has some pretty good bars and restaurants on its list such as Admiral’s Steak and Seafood, Crossing Café, Starbucks, and more. These are brands people know and love, so they will have some new places to visit.

Portsmouth is the town in Virginia where the project is taking place. Its mayor, Shannon Glover, agreed to the project because it will give the town’s economy a boost. The building process alone will open 1,400 construction jobs that the community will need to take. Once the building process is complete, then the casino will need staff for its daily operations so the community can look forward to another influx of 1,300 job positions.

These kinds of projects benefit everyone in the community. They also benefit the people behind them and the state. That’s why these kinds of projects will continue to happen across the US and the world. Virginia will get a new casino resort as it’s expected to open sometime in 2023.

Conclusion

The Rivers Casino will be permanent in Virginia and once it’s completed the community will have more jobs, another attractive place for casino and sports betting fans as well as regular visitors. More importantly, Portsmouth will get a new economic hotspot in the casino complex.
