Nice, but kind of stingy.

You'd think if you signed up during the 5th anniversary celebration they'd offer free play, but no, only a 10% discount at most restaurants. It is a non-smoking casino, so... read more

We ended up at the Rivers casino when a series of airline delays forced us to stay overnight near O'Hare. We ended up having dinner and then going to the casino for a bit of entertainment. I love the option of the penny slots! Lots of machines to play on, a variety of games, and a variety of price points.... More

It is a non-smoking casino, so smokers are sent out to the "smoking terrace", which isn't as glamorous as it sounds. It almost seems like a punishment for being a smoker. Payouts weren't great, so we... More

Clean, good welcoming staff. Just not very big, and actually, rather small. Drove from Milwaukee, there weren't enough slots to keep me occupied so that I felt the ride was worth it. This was on a Wednesday, by 1 pm place was packed, which also made it difficult to find machines I wanted to play. Stood in line for a... More

I stumbled upon this casino while near Rosemont. On Monday afternoon there were plenty of slot machines available but the tables were jumping. Area was clean.

We visited this casino on our return trip from Chicago to Ohio. It is very near to O'Hare International Airport. This is a clean and very big casino with a large number of people testing their luck! My wife is interested in playing on gaming machines. The machines are programmed in a manner so they don't give much to the... More

Great casino wirh a nice steakhouse inside. I played the video roulette and doubled my money in less than 10 minutes and walked away! Great place to unwind after being downtown all day. Close to the subway station and major business hotels in the area.

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
