Rio Casino Las Vegas review
Taking inspiration from the adventurous lifestyles of the people of Brazil, the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino was named after the beautiful Rio de Janeiro. Opening in 1990, the Rio was the first All Suite casino to open and operate in Las Vegas, and it has become one of the most popular venues for gamblers and people who just want to experience the eclectic mix of fun and luxury.
The casino has appeared in pop culture numerous times, being the host of various competitions and game shows like The Price Is Right, Live with Regis and Kelly, Hell’s Kitchen, as well as Penn & Teller shows. The Rio is also home to the Voodoo Lounge and Voo European Style pool area, where female guests can work on their tans topless.
The Rio has been the host casino of the World Series of Poker since 2005, and thus, the poker scene in the Rio is intense and lively. Poker professionals from all over the world gather at the Rio to go against some of the most talented players, playing No Limit Texas Hold’Em and Omaha poker. Weekly tournaments are also made available, where players can win as much as $10,000!
Of course, there are also traditional table games such as Blackjack< Pai Gow, Craps and Roulette available at the casino, as well as 1,200 slot machines. Progressive jackpots and varied denominations ensure that there is something for every kind of gamer in the Rio.
The Rio offers a range of Italian, Chinese and American cuisines in their dining areas, and while they specialise in fine dining, casual dining and quick bites are also available for those who come to the casino mainly to gamble. The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room also features some of the world’s best and rarest wines.
The Rio is equipped with a spa and salon to help guests relax, as well as four pool areas, a waterfall, and a white sand beach. Of course, there is also an active nightlife at the Rio, and parties here have become renowned in the Las Vegas party scene as well.
T SKUSA SuperNationals is also held at the Rio every year, in a circuit set up in the Rio’s parking lot. The DEF CON hacker convention is also regularly held at the Rio.
The Rio itself does not implement a strict dress code, although guests are asked to dress appropriately, ensuring that they do not offend other guests. The fine dining restaurants, however, require that their guests dress in business casual attire.
Rio is part of the Total Rewards program operated by Caesars Entertainment. Being a member lets you use one card for all the casinos participating in the Total Rewards program, earning points for each purchase or play. These points can be redeemed in all participating casinos as well.
