Rivers Casino Portsmouth, a $300+ million local investment, will anchor the all-new Entertainment District planned for Victory Boulevard. Rivers Casino Portsmouth will bring 1,300 permanent jobs and 1,400 temporary construction jobs to Hampton Roads—with a Portsmouth First commitment to hiring and contracting, along with a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the project. The property is projected to generate more than $16 million in new annual tax revenues for Portsmouth.
The new Rivers Casino includes plans for a hotel, indoor and outdoor concert venues, conference space, multiple restaurants and more. Rivers Casino’s gaming floor will feature a wide variety of slots, table games, a poker room and a state-of-the-art BetRivers Sportsbook.
If the project receives necessary approvals from the Virginia Lottery board and the city of Portsmouth, groundbreaking could take place in 2021. Grand opening will occur approximately two years from the start of construction.
