The Rio Casino

The Rio Casino is quite possibly one of the best known casinos in all of Las Vegas . It is the casino that hosts the World Series of Poker Main Event and it is also a casino that is home to many other televised poker tournaments. Because of this, the brand of this casino has gotten out far and wide into the ether and that is something that has brought a lot of people to Las Vegas in order to play at The Rio. However, getting the people to come to your casino is one thing, but only an excellent casino can make them stay.
 

Location
The Rio Hotel and Casino is located in a large resort building on West Flamingo Avenue . This means that it is essentially just off the Las Vegas Strip. While it is not on the road that happens to be the most famous in Las Vegas , it is close enough that you can easily walk to the strip and all of the attractions that it holds. If you wanted to you could crawl to the nearby Bellagio as well as the nearby Caesar's Palace and of course this means essentially that The Rio is located in some of the best real estate off the Las Vegas Strip that exists.

Gaming
The Rio Casino is definitely a casino that's all about poker and this shows through quite clearly in the table games they choose to have. While they do have the typical blackjack, baccarat, craps and roulette games all of their other selections worth playing are essentially poker ones. These include let it ride, stud poker, Pai Gow poker and Asia poker. Stud poker and Asia poker are rare table games in Las Vegas .

As for the actual poker room at the Rio Casino, it is simply one of the best poker rooms in Las Vegas . They typically stock Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha and Seven Card Stud at the tables in the poker room, but something else that is worth knowing is that if there is at least a table full of people that wants to play a specific poker game, the casino will dedicate a table to it. This means that if you want to play Anaconda, Omaha/8, Razz or any other poker variant, you just need to get enough people for a table of the game to be viable. Add this element of choice together with the daily No Limit Hold ‘Em tournament offerings and you have a poker room that is definitely worth pursuing.

The poker elements are definitely the main ones to love about the Rio . The slot machines and video poker machines are still good and definitely worth playing, but neither the selection nor the number available is good enough to compete with casinos that specialize in offering slot machines for play. The slot machines at The Rio are intended more as a complimentary item to the table and poker gaming they have available. The same can also be said for the keno, racebook and sportsbook operations that the casino runs on its premises.
