I go there like every week.
I play in high limit room , I seen that they putting slot machine on hold for a lady that plays like me , but when I asked for my machine to be putt on hold , I was told , sorry but we can't do this , I was like you guys just did this for the lady next to me , then I was told well we just do this for 3 people. I was like well I play with the same $$$ like they do, that's not right . We'll you have to speak with your host , which was not there at that time left a massage for her to call me never received a phone call back. Know I'm collecting names of people that fill the same way : Discriminated .

Spent a little time at this casino in April 2014. The casino is nice enough, seemed clean and comfortable. However, there are very few black jack or craps tables, and the ones they have stayed packed. Never even sniffed an open spot.....even if I had I would have been a little handicapped by the $15 and $25 minimums. Probably could have made due with the $15 table if I could have got on one.....There were many other tables with about every game imaginable however I don't get into those games so that didn't help me any. Had a drink at the bar which was nice. Played some slots for about an hour, which didn't turn out well. If I could have got on a $10 craps table probably would have felt very different! Nonetheless it is fun entertainment.

Friday evening in Rosemont, Il. We were staying in the area and my wife and I decided to go to River Casino. We spent an enjoyable evening together and had a good time. This is great place with plenty to keep you entertained and busy. It was a fun time. If you can't find fun here your no longer breathing.

It is busy and bustling! A good amount of table games but high stakes for the most part. You have to have money to play here. Table games average at $25 minimum bet and go up from there. Seem to be some winning going on and the slots seemed to be paying out somewhat. Had an excellent steak there. Highlight of the night. There is a number of food choices and there is a night club in there as well. TV s up throughout and you are able to catch the games. Hockey and basketball was on. Made for serious gambling. I worry about the effects it has on the local communities surrounding it as they are working class neighbourhoods such as Des Plaines. Over all I had a great time even though the BJ tables only ran 6 and 8 card decks. Limit 50 to 10,000. That is a big spread.

Plenty of free parking and easy access to the casino. Join the "Players Club" (no charge) and get free slot play money a discount at the Buffett. Lots of good choices on the buffett. Illinois is a NO SMOKING IN PUBLIC BUILDINGS STATE. Therefore the CASINO AND THE BAR AND THE RESTAURANTS AND DINING areas are smoke free! Nice live music in the bar area.
