If you have the Vegas itch do not bother with your time here. The tables are not loud, noone was really into the table games. Save your money and go to Vegas

This was my first time visiting the Rivers Casino on New Year's Eve with my family. For starters it does have several options for parking spaces such as outdoors or inside the parking garage. The casino is one level with an air-walk to and from the parking garage. Of course by the time we arrived around 11:30 p.m. the place... More

Good Service, Good Food. MACHINES ARE tighter than a Baby's Tush. Gaming Tables are too High. I am a VIP member who used to be able to win, now I am Donating money without a tax deduction. During the holidays, the Casino was not decorated and not festive. Spoke to the General Manager about the High Limits room always being... More

Rivers is a great place to spend your time for New Year's. It is very crowded but the festivities for mid night are great.

This is no smoking in this casino. Best thing about it. Not much of a gambler so the no smoking and not smelling when you leave is a great idea. Wish they were all no smoking.

I've been here twice now and once was New Years eve. I felt like the casino was over capacity as there was no machines open most of the night and the bar areas were mobbed. They do have good food choices here which I love! The burgers at the cafe are awesome and the buffet isn't half bad.

This new casino is serviced by a shuttle bus from the Rosemont stop on the Blue Line EL. If you have a long layover at O'Hare Airport, you can hop on the EL - one stop from airport and take the free shuttle for some fun and hopefully winnings.

Nice casino to spend a few hours and dollars. Nothing special and certainly not a Vegas kind of place but worth the time. Some good restaurants available but nothing in the early morning other than a small coffee shop. Very clean when I was their and service was friendly. Nothing spectacular but a good way to spend a few hours... More

I'm a VERY casual gambler. My girlfriend loves to play the slots so I like to play low limit tables to pass the time while she plays. I specifically like 3 card poker but there were only 2 tables of that and both were $15 minimum. I'm used to playing $5 minimum. Seemed like tables were geared mostly towards bacarrat.... More
