WE have been here twice and have enjoyed both times. WE entered the back the last time and thought it was a different Casino because we came in from the Front. They have VAlet at both doors. Unfortunately no Poker

The Rivers Casino is fun, clean, friendly and offers an array of eating establishments. One of the nicest attributes is the manageable size of the casino- not overwhelming like some casinos. Also, the location is centralized and parking is easy.

Good ambiance. Excellent restaurants. Good amount of slots but a little high on the lowest amount to gamble.

Met a few other people and we headed off to the Casino. Had a great time, drinks were reasonably priced and we sat in the Lounge listening to music

Rivers is usually pretty busy but if you can get there when they open at 9am, the table minimums are reasonable. Most of the dealers are very friendly

The Rivers Casino is a close option for gambling. If you are a people watcher it is a good place to see differant types. The One Arm Bandits don't pay off as well as other casinos I have been to. It's a casino. The parking is pretty good.

A fantastic casino with a great mix of choices.

If you are a gambler (I am not, but am married to one and hang with friends who are), you can visit Rivers and leave without your eyes burning or reeking of smoke. This place has the latest games, a clean and well-monitored environment, plus some good food
