Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has been approved to remove 302 slots from its location.

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is the fifth casino since last June to request the removal of slots to the PGCB. While the facility acknowledged needing newer machines, it also blamed Pennsylvania skill games for the reduction.

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has the third-most slots in the Keystone State with 2,283, behind Parx Casino and Wind Creek Casino. Even with the reduction of 302 machines, the property will still maintain third spot with 1,981 slots. It will remain slightly ahead of Live! Casino Philadelphia’s count of 1,967.
