Over 50 Years of History and Experience
The Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino was first opened in 1966 and was rather quaint to begin with. At first the soon to be resort offered mild casino related entertainment with around a dozen slot machines and a few table games. There was some basic food options and a handful of motel rooms available. In 1972 the first of the expansions began with an additional wing of rooms being added to the complex. This became a regular event, with every few year’s additions being brought in. By 1986 the resort had two 14 story towers housing several hundred rooms each as well as an automotive museum displaying some of the more eccentric and popular rare automobiles.
The largest of these expansions to grow the Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino occurred in 1994 when a 30 story hotel tower was added, dwarfing the earlier two towers and becoming the tallest hotel tower in Laughlin to date. Currently the resort holds in excess of 1400 rooms, alongside a 34 lane bowling alley and a 6 screen theatre. There is also a large RV park available to those visitors using these mobile homes as well as several restaurants and even a yacht, which is available to charter out. From the outside looking in this seems like quite an offer, and that not even mentioning the available games to date.
The Casino of the Resort
Over the many expansions across the 50 odd years of this resort’s lifetime, there have been several with regard to the size of available casino and gaming space. As a result the space available for this express purpose is over 7000 metres squared to date and so capable of squeezing quite a few different games inside. On the list are slot machines and table games of a varying manner with different betting levels as well as bonuses and return options. The variety is enough for players to be able to play a game they really quite fancy. One of the chief highlights of this gaming space is the open Poker tables which even have small bet pay in competitions throughout the day with timed events turning the game into a rather aggressive betting experience.
