Rivers Casino Schenectady has reopened its poker room on Wednesday, September 1. The poker room was shut last year in March due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is the last major piece of the gaming operation still closed after the 2020 shutdown, and fans had missed it, the casino’s management said.

“The poker room is extremely popular and a big part of what makes for a fun and exciting gaming experience at the casino, and we couldn’t be happier to reopen it for our guests,” General Manager Rick Richards said in a news release.

The poker room hours of operation will be 10 am to 2 am. The rest of the casino is open from 6 am to 2 am. The four-hour closure is in place to allow for deep cleaning each night.

Rivers Casino & Resort was shut down from March to September 2020 as part of COVID-19 control measures, as were most other large-gathering venues. The casino has been building its operations back incrementally ever since.
