Rush Street Gaming announced Tuesday it is promoting Eric Althaus from Assistant General Manager to General Manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. The casino veteran is set to lead 1,100+ team members at Fishtown's waterfront casino.
Prior to being named Assistant General Manager in 2022, Althaus served as Vice President of Gaming at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, overseeing all gaming operations, including the recent "first-in-Philly" launch of Pulse Arena.
“Eric’s leadership and familiarity with Rivers Casino Philadelphia will allow for a seamless transition and continuity with key initiatives,” said Tim Drehkoff, CEO of Rush Street Gaming.
“Our entire Rivers Casino Philly team has been doing a terrific job. We’re looking forward to the upcoming unveiling of the much-anticipated Martorano’s Prime, along with other exciting projects in 2023.”
Before coming to Rivers Philly, Althaus was President and General Manager of Mardi Gras Casino & Resort in West Virginia; and earlier served as Vice President and General Manager of Gun Lake Casino in Michigan. He began his casino career as a table games dealer and supervisor at several Midwestern casinos.
“We have amazing talent here in Philly, and we’re continuing the strong forward momentum we’ve gained over the past year,” said Althaus. “Our success is the direct result of the team’s hard work and dedication.”
This isn't the only update the company has shared about the property. As the firm previously announced, Martorano’s Prime, an Italian-American Steakhouse, is opening soon at Rivers Casino Philadelphia. A new Dunkin will also open at the casino this spring, and "several other dining options" are on the horizon as well.
