Poker Night in America Launches Innovative Poker Residency

Poker Night in America (“PNIA”), the flagship cash game television show produced by Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (“RSI”), is setting a new standard for TV poker and the Las Vegas poker scene by launching a one-of-a-kind “Poker Residency” at a private mansion in Las Vegas. The 10,000-square-foot mansion, dubbed “Studio 52,” will host innovative gaming content starting May 15th, featuring a diverse lineup of poker personalities and special guests.

Lon McEachern, the voice of the World Series of Poker on ESPN for over 20 years, and YouTube sensation Joey Ingram are among the poker personalities who will be broadcasting from Studio 52. Other guests include “Aceholes” duo Nikki Limo and Caitlin Comeskey, Jason Somerville of “Run It Up” fame, world-renowned poker player Phil Galfond, and coach Lexy Gavin-Mathers, who starred in season 9 of PNIA.

In addition to the star-studded lineup, a roster of world-class chefs, mixologists, and entertainers will be on hand to provide an elevated experience for viewers and players at Studio 52. DJ Chef, champion of Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen,” will be the first chef to take on the kitchen on May 15.

Studio 52 features a full Poker Night in America production set, luxury commentary suite, backyard wine cave, and outdoor game pavilion, among other high-end amenities. The property, privately gated at an undisclosed location, was designed to be camera-ready for PNIA and other creators who will make themselves at home at Studio 52.

PNIA founder Todd Anderson, who resides in the mansion, will host invitation-only parties at the property for a closely guarded “who’s who” guest list of players. Poker Night in America LIVE from Studio 52 will stream on YouTube and Twitch, starting May 15th at 8 PM EST, and will be presented by BetRivers. The full season will air on the 24/7 Poker Night in America channel on YouTube, and exclusive content will also be available on social media.

“You never know who’s going to show up at Studio 52 but you’re sure to see some recognizable faces in a whole new light,” Todd Anderson promised. “We’re breaking the mold for TV poker and doing things we couldn’t do in a casino setting. We are rolling out the red carpet at our Vegas mansion for these stars to give players and fans at home the feeling that they too are attending the exclusive parties.”

“With the release of Studio 52, we’re redefining what a live poker show can be, and BetRivers is thrilled to bring this new twist on poker entertainment to both players and fans alike,” said Richard Schwartz, CEO at RSI, which operates BetRivers and PNIA. “Poker Night in America’s new Vegas home, like BetRivers, is the ultimate hangout for players who enjoy the rush of betting and having fun. These poker purists and poker enthusiasts are also passionate about online casino and sportsbook betting, so this is another step in our strategy of creating high quality and unique experiences for our current and prospective players.”
