Gaming at Rivers Casino

The massive nearly 150,000 square foot casino floor at Rivers Casino offers enough variety for any players. On opening day the place filled up so quickly that late-comers had to be invited back to play another day. There is something for every gambler's taste and bankroll at Rivers, from penny slots to a $100,000 max bet on Baccarat with dragon bonus.

With well over 1,000 slot machines you will find your favorites in denominations ranging from a penny to $100, with plenty of $1 games like Blazing 7's and Double Diamond 27 Ways.

Table players will find enough variety to fit their style too: roulette, craps, blackjack, pai gow, baccarat and more. If high limits are your way to play the High Limit Lounge offers 100X odds and up to $25,000 max odds on Craps, $500 any way to the number on Roulette, and a $100,000 max bet on Baccarat with dragon bonus side bet!
