Rivers Casino Philadelphia’s poker room reopened yesterday after being closed for more than seven months after the March 15 property-wide shutdown and more than three months after the casino reopened on July 17.
The poker room, which is open 24 hours a day, can run up to 14 tables with a maximum of seven players allowed per table and a maximum capacity of approximately 100 guests. The action is primarily No Limit Texas Hold ’em cash games.
In addition to the existing casino-wide safety measures, the following precautions are in effect for the poker room: Masks must be worn at all times; poker dealers wear both a mask and a face shield; each poker table in play has plexiglass dividers separating players and the dealer; frequent and thorough cleaning of all cards, chips and surfaces; no food, beverage or smoking is permitted in the poker room (or anywhere on the Rivers Casino gaming floor).
To assist with social distancing, players are encouraged to call the poker room to put their name on the waiting list. Guests can also check the Bravo Poker Live online or the website’s mobile app for the Rivers Casino poker room up-to-the-minute game status.
