We visited the casino on a Tuesday night and found the tables and slots full at 6 PM. We enjoyed the buffet and a had a few drinks and used the shuttle between the Comfort Inn O'Hare and the casino.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a casino next to O'Hare Airport in Chicago that had higher limits than most Las Vegas casinos. The casino was clean and well lit. The dealers were very knowledgeable and the staff was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend this casino if you are in the Chicago area.

We liked that the casino happened to be near our hotel, so we could actually walk there. It is averaged size. It has lots of quarter machines. The buffet had lots of entrée and dessert selections.

I've never been to a casino with such high table minimums. For the area it was very confusing - Des Plaines is NOT Vegas. With that being said - it was still nice to grab a drink and walk around.

We came to Chicago for a show and spent the evening. We had some time to kill so we decided to check out the Rivers Casino near our hotel which was 2 miles away. The location of the casino is near many wonderful hotels and restaurants. The one thing that impressed me the most is that the casino is smoke... More

I have visited many casinos in many different towns. This is quite nice for a casino. The bars are nice and the drinks are stout. The food offerings we have tried are Hugo's Frog Bar which is one of the finest steak and seafood places in this area. And the Canopy Buffet which was really good for a buffet. There... More

I am not a big gambler but my friend enjopys it so I tag along. I noticed many people winning as I was walking around - by winning I don't mean $50 bucks - I mean the staff/security having to come and write up W2 forms becuase of the size of the payouts. Well, having about 10 minutes to spare... More

This casino presents a traveller another option besides the dining and bar hopping scene prevalent in the Rosemont Chicago O'Hare area. So very keen to take advantage of this opportunity, my friend and I visited the casino on a busy Saturday night and had a blast! Yes, the steak restaurant was over-priced and the gaming area was jam-packed with people... More

Nice casino smoke free it's rare. Friendly staff. Best advice play table games we actually won some money . If you like slots this is not the place for you tight and odds are not good. I will visit again just for table games.
