The Casino is very tight, difficult to win. The table game minimums are very high and they never lower those minimums. I am a blue card holder and the Casino on occasion offers me $5.00 free slot play, Horseshoe, Hollywood and Elgin offer me $35 free slot play. Rivers is a place that you could drop a bundle and never... More

The closest casino we have near us. The buffet always has great food. The "club" part has a cover fee which sucks, but it was okay. My dad met friends there for his birthday, mostly an older crowd.

We had dinner twice in Hugo's Chop House. Gina, our server, gave us outstanding service. Her recommendations for main courses and sides were perfect. Thanks for making this trip special.

It was crowded and machines were not paying out when I was there. Do not waste your money coming here. It was my birthday and other casinos usually do something, or even acknowledge it,they did nothing.

Rivers is a new casino and it shows. The interior felt clean and well maintained. I did not see much wear and tear at the machines or the tables. I was a little irked that the minimum bets across the entire casino were somewhat high. I'm not a huge gambler and was turned off by that. I did eat at... More

only been here twice, both times after 6 pm. my impresssions are it's a smaller, limited tables, no poker casino which is packed in pm due to limited space, with so-so dining.....though this place is the closest to me, i'd rather hit the horseshoe casino.

Buffet is expensive. They take 10 mins to card an out of state licence... 5 mins for Illinois one. Rarely do you hear anyone winning. All tables don't go below a 25$ minimum. Only reason I usually go is when a decent band is playing at the cube. Meh.

Rivers Casino is the only casino in the vicinity. We've home here 3 or 4 times and this review summit up pretty well. The parking management system is pretty easy to use, you just look for the green dot overhead and that is an open parking space. We have not eaten at the restaurant at the casino. The casino itself... More

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