My husband & I stopped in to kill a few hours before our flight. We had so much fun. The best part - the staff. Everyone was so friendly!

When you go to Rivers just hand them your money. There is no one that has a chance of winning. There is a reason this place brings in more money than any other casino in the state. THEY DO NOT PAY OUT. Go any where else and at least have a chance of winning something.

I was staying at the hotel close by and thought I visit the casino in the evening. Now I have been to many casinos but I think this is one of the more expensive one.

Walked through to check it out. It's an interesting but compact place. The bar in the middle seemed nice and packed but very open. Table games were around but had hefty minimums. It was clean well spaced. Struck me as an adults-only Dave & Buster's. The club in the corner is nice. The whole experience really made me miss Vegas.... More

This place is small and tightly packed with slots and tables. Most of the time you can't sit down for less than $25 a hand of blackjack unless you are there bright and early. NO POKER here folks. With the combination of NO POKER and HIGH COST.....I will go to GVC or any other casino in the Chicagoland area. They... More

Rivers is very conveniently located. Near O'hare Airport and Rosemont but their slots are the tightest I've found among the area casino's.

I tried to go to this casino with a friend while on holiday in Chicago. What a nightmare. We took public transit from downtown to get there, which took almost an hour. Once there, my friend, who is 32, was asked for ID. He presented his valid Alberta driver's license and was denied entry. They refuse to let any foreigner... More

I was doubtful upon entry that this would be nice but it WAS!!!! Good crowd, nice selection of tables, comfy, etc. But it's not Vegas so have to pay for drinks when playing at tables. Surprisingly nice place but surprising that I had to pay $5 for Miller Lite while playing $50 minimum Blackjack table. But they do have much... More

This is a nice casino, busy as hell, but well run. Hugos Frog Bar and Steakhouse is positively worth eating at. Generally, you never expect to win anything at a casino, but this casino is amongst the tightest I have ever played at. It doesn't seem to have any competition, so I can't blame them for being tight. But overall,... More
