Capital OTB has a branch at Van Slyck's, near the gaming floor.

There are betting terminals and a teller is also on hand to take bets.

Rivers says it made the move after listening to casino goers.

"That's one thing we heard we were missing," explained Justin Moore, the vice president of Rivers Casino. "It's just another roadblock out of the way for people to come down and enjoy the casino."

The new branch is open just in time for a big horseracing weekend. The Kentucky Derby is Saturday. You can watch it on NewsChannel 13.
