Odds of finding a place to gamble will get better next month for residents of the Northwest suburbs when the new Rivers Casino opens in Des Plaines.
The new $400 million casino at River Road and Devon Avenue in Des Plaines will employ 1,000 people. Featuring more than 1,000 slot machines and table games that surround the sophisticated Lotus Lounge, Rivers Casino will offer some of the highest table game limits in the country, with a plush high-limit VIP area including an intimate private gaming salon.
The casino will also feature restaurants from the upscale Hugo's Frog Bar and Chop House to the casual grill FLIPT, which serves freshly made burgers, sandwiches, fries and shakes. A buffet, Asian noodle shop and coffee shop are also planned.
The Cube is a multipurpose venue that transforms from a sports bar to a live performance venue or nightclub, featuring a state-of-the-art A/V system and LED backdrop screens.
