Road trip stop. Wish we had kept driving. After a long drive we thought we'd stop for some fun. Poor selection of machines. Payout was non-existent. Conservative bets paid NOTHING. I do visit casinos frequently and this was the worst from the Caribbean to Vegas and all the way to the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

I came to the casino to play machines a little. I discovered that every machine had a small TV with a college football game running. This is a major distraction and inappropriate as people playing the machines are interested in gaming and not watching football. There are huge TVs in the bar area if watching games would be desired. One... More

A casino that has everything for a challenging time to win win. Food spots are top notch and fair prices. Bring a friend and enjoy this place.

That's right, I said it! Rivers has stepped up their game. They added more video poker games with more denomination choices. From nickels to dollars,single handed play, multi-handed play, your choice, they got it. With all that said, throw in some multiplier action and things get crazy exciting!! The "BEST" thing about this place is they like seeing happy customers!... More

I was only here for a minute to go to Hugo's Frog Bar & Steakhouse but it was very well kept and clean. Seemed like the place was very busy and people were having fun. If I'm back in town for a little longer I will probably check it out again.

Typical casino - cards and slot machines. We went in a weeknight and the place was pretty busy. Don't want to imagine how crazy it is on the weekends. They have a lot of parking and a nice buffet restaurant.

This place can get crowded for sure. And please note...when the crowds come they raise the ante' on the tables. I saw a roulette table for 25 minimum. That took me out of the game. I won some and I lost more...

Rivers is nice but way too small. I'm a BJ player so those tables stink on the weekend and get raised to a minimum $25 but $50 is typical, which is uncool. I rather go Indiana or even Michigan to avoid that crap and get much better ratings. Most managers don't really look at what your average gamble is just... More
