We made a point to go and take pictures of The Riviera before we left because it was shutting down on May 2nd. They pretty much had everything taken down off of the walls, but we found a bunch of old pictures to take pictures of in the big bosses office, and he let us come in and take photos.... More

On their 60 year anniversary, they are closing the doors, 1st week in May. I had to walk thru to remember all the times I had been there years ago before all the big places came along. It was very quiet, I enjoyed looking at the photo wall of fame outside the comedy club, rolling the dice for 1 last... More

Walking around here feels very depressing. My wife said it best when she called it a ghost town. The place just feels dirty and off putting. Maybe if it would've been updated in the last thirty years, it wouldn't be closing now. As sad as it is to be losing another Vegas icon, it needs to be put out of... More

I wandered into this venue to meet some friends who were newbies in the casino world and wanted to get some black jack experience playing at a $1.00 table. The Riviera boasts of their "One Dollar Tables" all over town so they figured "why not?". Well I can give tell you "why not". I was dropped off by a cab... More

We have gone here on and off for the last 30+ years. We manage to leave a few dollars in every place we go up and down the strip and do not expect to win, but do expect to play for a while before the house wins. Accepting this, it is just as easy for us to have a good... More

We walked down to this end of the strip to check out some of the older joints and were nearly attacked in each direction by timeshare people, even inside the casino. We asked where the taxis were and we were told to walk to circus circus. The casino had table games and was older but still an average casino but... More

I knew the Riviera is old and did not expect much but it did not even reach those expectations. Unlike Circus Circus which is also old, the Riviera is awful and the staff unfriendly. We only stopped to gamble and walked out after a few hands of Black Jack. if the hotel even resembles the casino.....

Riviera casino is home of the $1 blackjack table. but don't expect to get on a table there is only one and it is normally full. but I went to a $5 table and still had an amazing time. Dealers were very nice and friendly, even joked around with us.
