Long Named GM of Schenectady’s Rivers

Rush Street Gaming announced last month that Rob Long, formerly president and CEO of the Bally’s and Resorts casinos in Tunica, Mississippi, has joined Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady as general manager.

Long began his career in gaming in the late 1970s as a staff member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. He transitioned thereafter to Harrah’s Reno Hotel & Casino, where he rotated through several departments, including surveillance, table games and operations. Since then, Long has held leadership positions throughout various Midwest and central U.S. gaming markets—Davenport, Iowa; Biloxi, Mississippi; St. Louis, Missouri—successfully managing full-service casinos.

Long has particular expertise in establishing new properties in emerging gaming markets, having led several developments through construction, opening and early operations. Notably, Long managed the ground-up developments of Rainbow Casino and Riverwalk Casino Hotel, both in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Riverwalk was Rush Street’s first U.S. casino development.
