There was one thing that gamblers visiting Rivers Casino kept sating they were missing. Well, Rivers listened and now you can bet the ponies while hitting the slots or table games.

Casinos are a gamblers paradise, I mean with just one bet it is possible (although not entirely probable) to win some serious cash. Schenectady's Rivers Casino offers a wide array of dining, entertainment, and gambling options for casino gores.

From slots to table games there are plenty of options to make you bets at the casino and now there are even more. According  to WNYT the casino has now become the first and only commercial casino in New York State to offer live horseracing wagering to guests.

Last weekend Capital OTB opened their latest branch at the Casino in Van Slyck's just off the gaming floor. The new branch comes complete with betting terminals and a teller to take bets.

For horse wagering enthusiasts I could see how this could offer a more exciting betting environment other than a traditional OTB outside of track season. Do you think you will be heading to the casino to place your bets?
