The ambiance, modern decor & restaurants in this small casino makes a trip there worthwhile. We were here on a weekend and the place was packed. I wish it was not so crazy & packed like that but it was fun. We enjoyed eating at the Canopy buffet. They had an enormous selection and quite good too. We also ate... More

My husband and I booked a room at Hyatt O'Hare so we could take advantage of the stay and play package and the shuttle to the casino. We were unable to book the stay and play package we wanted (for whatever reason) and ended up driving ourselves to the casino. Not only was our hotel terrible, but this casino is... More

The casino seems to be very nice however it is small. Especially on the weekends and for a large metropolitan area. The burger restaurant serves very good burgers and fries.

It has a really nice atmosphere..but boy does it take your money...The first year I was winning a lot..then after that nothing...Seems like when you win one time..the next time you lose all of it..I think Hollywood Casino is the best and I will spend my money there from now on!..

Have been here two or three times with friends for dinner at Hugos and a little gaming. The staff has always been nice and friendly. Hugos.....is always a great meal. I love the reviews where people dont like the casino because it is hard to win there. I think casinos by nature are hard to win at if you are... More

it seems depending on the size of crowd, the table games, the minimum bets are changed. High table limits gets those who play in and out quick from the casino. A lot of people play the slots and not enough machines, it quickly becomes standing room only. People come in waiting to play and then leave. If you want a... More

It is quite evident that the slot managers here select who they want to win money and/or free games.

Love that's it's smoke free (unlike vegas). Going on a Saturday made it a little harder to play certain slots. Some of the newer slots had only 2 machines. Went through our money quickly when even the penny slots had a forty or fifty cent minimum. It was still a fun few hrs. Don't think we will go back. It's... More

My 2 out of town girlfriends and I get together every year and we usually spend at least part of a day at a casino. We chose Rivers because it was close and new, but we should have traveled a little further. It was a weekday afternoon so parking was easy and the casino was not crowded. I an not... More
