I've been here several times. It's very clean and pretty. There's various restaurants such as Hugo's and Hugo's bar, hamburger place, sports bar, a nice lounge in the center... and live music on certain nights.

Nice and small Rivers Casino has slots of all kinds and the typical table games. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wasn't happy that table stakes were so high for a Thursday evening though. Ended up not playing.

The buffet is twenty dollars with your casino card. It is really something special and should be tried. I enjoy the slots, but there are many other gambling options to choose from. In addtion, they have music in the evenings.

It's a new clean fun casino. Didn't see a whole lot of winning while I was there but it's still a fun place to visit

Primarily a slot player...Whats with all the 2 cent slots?!! Be wary as these chew up your bank roll very fast. Hard to get on the few 1 cent machines at Rivers. Its ridiculous who wants to wait to only end up loosing money. No one wins here. If you do bonus the payouts are pathetic. Worst casino of the... More

It was my first time coming here. Had a blast at a BYE party here at 'The Cube' club. Great vibe, nice people and the place is not too big and not too small.

Went here one evening with a friend. Food and drinks here ae expensive. The buffet is $30.00 and that is probably overpriced by ten dollars. The advertised noodle house is extremely small and only seats about 12 people. No free drinks while gambling. It is a small casino. Was not that impressed. just a very average small casino.
