Not for a casual night out

Typical smoke filled casino with tables that were very high in price. Lots of serious gamblers coming in from O'Hare.

I love this place for its convenience to the burbs and city. Parking is easy and close and the environment is generally pleasant. My biggest issues are the size of the casino and the table limits. It feels like way too much space went into the bar area and the many restaurants inside and not on the casino floor. The... More

The casino is nice and new! It is very clean and has no odors (other than in the bathrooms)...we didn't stay long though...lost a bit of money pretty quick (which you have to expect in a casino) but was pretty surprised not to see ANY significant wins by anyone while we were there...for the middle of the day, the table...

The inside of the casino is very modern and clean. The staff was plenty friendly. Table limits were very high compared to what I am used to. I was there on a Sunday night and it was very crowded. Bar service was fair, but drinks were too high priced considering the table limits. Overall a nice place to spend some... More

It's just okay. Nothing like Vegas. Not many casinos in chicago. This one is close to O'Haire airport visit only if you are curious. That's my opinion

Rivers casino is very close to O'Hare airport and Rosemont, Illinois. Its not a big place, but being very close to the wealth of Chicago, I seem some stupid money flowing through the 3 days I was here. Table limits are not high...they are very high. Friday and Saturday night, $25 minimums if you can find one. Not a huge... More

Stopped by the River Casino to test Lady Luck and she was not in the house that night. The slots and tables were unforgiving so we left before it was too late. It still had a fairly new casino look being its not that old. Parking is ample and there are a couple of restaurants inside. It's near the major... More

The casino is beautiful but it should have been bigger when first built. Perhaps there could have been a second floor. I was just there on May 18, 2015 and noticed they put in a lot more 2 cent slots. I think there should be more 1 cent slots. But a very nice decor inside.

Shuttled over from the Hilton and walked back. It was something to do. There were a few restaurants and all in all a good experience
