Rivers Casino Portsmouth Starts Strong in Virginia, GGR Reaches Nearly $25m in First Full Month

Rivers Casino Portsmouth generated almost $25m in gross gaming revenue during its first full month of operations. The Rush Street Gaming-owned property opened its doors on January 23, becoming Virginia’s first permanent casino. The Virginia Lottery reported revenue figures for the property this week.

$17.1m from slots play and $7.5m from table games

Breaking down the $24.6m in gaming revenue for February, Rivers Casino Portsmouth won $17.1m from slots play and $7.5m from table games. The total does not include the revenue generated through the BetRivers Sportsbook; the Virginia Lottery will report those figures at a later date.

The resulting tax revenue from the first full month of operations was over $4.4m, with the city of Portsmouth getting about $1.5m of this sum.

The Rivers Casino Portsmouth was developed for $340m and offers 1,420 slot machines, as well as over 80 table games.

There has been some controversy since the casino opened. Many patrons weren’t happy with the extensive cigarette smoke around the facility, which led to the property announcing on January 30 that it would reserve about half of the gaming floor for non-smokers.
