Along with opening Martorano’s Prime steakhouse and several other dining additions, the Rivers Casino Philadelphia will be welcoming a new general manager, Eric Althaus. The industry veteran received a promotion from assistant general manager to general manager, with Rush Street Gaming announcing the move as “effective immediately.”
“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 in a released statement. “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.”
With a large number of Pennsylvania bettors moving their betting to official PA online sports betting apps and the vast entertainment options provided by the state’s online casinos with games such as PA online slots and PA online blackjack, the move to Althaus as general manager signals an effort to boost the allure of the Rivers Casino Philadelphia.
Before working at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, Althaus was President and General Manager of the popular Mardi Gras Casino & Resort in West Virginia. He also served as Vice President General Manager at the Gun Lake Casino in Michigan.
Althaus began his career in the gaming industry by working as a table games dealer and supervisor at several casinos sprinkled throughout the Midwest.
“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.”
