River's Casino is not big - but it offers a good variety of options.... slots & table games and a high-limit room. there's also lots of food options - from burgers, to sushi, to a buffet and a higher end steakhouse. There's also a nice bar centered in the casino - with a great 360-view of the floor. And if... More

Let me start off by saying, I have been to Vegas a lot and I mean a lot. So, my friend and I wanted to go dancing, have a couple of drinks and do some gambling on a Saturday night. I suggested the Cube, because it was close to home. Not realizing I was going to be paying downtown Chicago/Vegas... More

Nice Casino for a short visit. Gets crowded quickly and got a little warm for me but I still enjoyed myself. They had all you could eat crab legs and they were huge and awesome. Service was excellent and good selection of slot machines.

I live locally an was excited years ago to have a Casino open close to the house. I travel alot and have been to Casino's all over the country. At first payouts and bonuses were often. Now it's rare to get either. Small place, and the popular machines are twice the bet amount of other Casinos. Drinks are expensive, ($5... More

Their food is mediocre at best. I agree with other reviews that this place is a money eater, and you need to spend higher amounts, risk large sums of money to have your best chance to win. It seems they depend on people to come in and spend $50 or $100 and get out. I'm not impressed with their gifts... More

Food mediocre and the server (she was great) tried to make up for the poor kitchen service I would not recommend. Also cabs will NOT and pick you up even tough told multiple times we have a long line of cabs waiting. I think they want to hold you hostage - I'm not naive understand they want to keep you... More

What can I say, just another small casino that is primarily about entertainment. The place is beautifully decorated and is fun to visit, but be ready for the place to eat your cash. They have all the usual gaming, but the slots don't really pay. The casino is in a great location and is convenient if you're at a convention... More

I am a VIP member of this casino. But after a year of spending more than $50,000 in a yr. It has been very un pleasant & un enjoyable to come in this casino anymore. Every visit u loose more & more & no more winning. Old players have been unseen in this place because u can never win anymore.... More
