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.
