Customers at Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh's North Shore, shown here Tuesday, June 30, 2015, play on the gaming floor. Year-over-year growth that saw Pennsylvania rocket up the list of the nationÕs most profitable casino industries has come to an end. For the fourth consecutive year, casino gambling revenues will come in around $3.1 billion Ñ still good enough to rank the state No. 2 in the country,al though that could change as New York builds new casinos over the next few years.

The National Football League’s biggest game — Super Bowl LIII — kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday night on CBS.

Not everyone will be watching.

First of all, The Steelers aren’t in it.

Secondly, you may not like football or the teams playing, hint: Patriots.

You might want to pursue other options.

Here are a few suggestions:

Go gambling without betting on the big game : Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, a 45,000-square-feet entertainment destination on the North Side is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Try your luck at one of 2,900 slot machines, 100-plus table games or inside the 30-table poker room. There are eight dining and nightlife options.

Glide along the ice : The Mass Mutual Pittsburgh Ice Skating Rink at PPG Place, Downtown Pittsburgh is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays. The $1 million outside ice skating rink is 116 feet by 116 feet and is 67 percent larger than the Rockefeller Center ice rink in New York City.

See live theater : “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” has a 6:30 p.m. Sunday performance at the Benedum Center, Downtown Pittsburgh. Hear songs from the original film, including “Pure Imagination,” “The Candy Man,” and “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket.” Get ready for Oompa-Loompas, incredible inventions, and the great glass elevator.

Get some groceries : Shopping during football games is some of the best times to get everything you want without having to wait in lines. Just make sure it’s after kickoff, because those Super Bowl party throwers will be in line with those items they’ve forgotten. But once the coin flips, the store most likely will be a ghost town so you can maneuver the aisles without anyone tackling you.
