What’s new at Live! Casino Pittsburgh

Live! Casino Pittsburgh opened in late November 2020 and are already upping their games and amenities to provide a great experience for their guests.

Here’s what’s new at Live! Casino Pittsburgh

Live! Casino Pittsburgh Poker Room: The 1,500 sq. ft. poker room with seven tables is expected to open on Dec. 20 pending approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Of the three mini-casinos in PA, it will be the only one with a poker room.

Event Center: The 7,000 sq. ft event center on the second floor of the casino can host weddings, private parties and  entertainment acts. According to a press release in an email, Live! expects to invest additional capital to enhance the facility in 2022.

FanDuel FanCave: Located on the second floor of the casino, adjacent to Sports & Social. The space used to have foosball tables, darts and FanDuel Sportsbook betting kiosks. It’s gotten an overhaul and now the transformed 826 sq.ft. space has more of a sportsbook lounge-feel. It still has FanDuel betting kiosks and now has 13 leather recliners and a 173” HD TV.

High-Limit room: Live! Casino Pittsburgh reconfigured the high-limit room to include 18 additional slot machines.

Electronic Gaming Tables: Electronic table games (EGTs) are becoming a fixture on PA casino floors. Live! Pittsburgh plans to put in 20 EGTs by Dec. 23 (pending PGCB approval). Guests will be able to play Roulette and Blackjack on the EGTs  with a live dealer. Fourteen of the EGTs will be located outside the main casino bar and six inside the main casino bar.
