Driving as far west as you can go in Canada, on an admittedly long road trip, to British Columbia will get you to this casino. It’s like all roads, well the Trans Canada anyway, head towards the fun and excitement. The River Rock Casino Resort is located in Richmond, British Columbia and represents the most significant casino in the province. Owned by the Great Canadian Gaming, this massive building has over 10,000 visitors every day. It was first opened in 2004, and according to reports, as of 2006, the casino generated an annual revenue of whooping $244 million demonstrating how popular it has become.
The Vancouver area is already deep in the film industry and includes the River Rock in many of their movies. The casino itself played a host to many films, and one of the most famous, if not so much critically acclaimed, is Blonde and Blonder.

As I said earlier, if you don’t feel like playing at the moment, you can enjoy the Four-Diamond resort and its offerings.
The accommodation in the hotel is one of a kind. All of the 396 rooms are all customer with a unique touch that shines in the spirit of the Richmond area. It’s where the luxury, ambience, and fantastic hospitality waits for you. If you don’t feel like going to bed that early, you can head down to the first-class spa or take a relaxing swim in the extraordinary resort pool.
The restaurants are within everyone’s mood. The five restaurants (Tramonto, Curve, The Buffet, Sea Harbour, and Food Court) are here to welcome you with their delicious and excellent cooked meals.
You will have an excellent time from check-in to check-out. The hotel staff are very friendly and will help to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Maybe the food in the restaurants will come a little bit pricey for a casino, but you’ll manage to stay satisfied with the quality they are offering. The prices of the food go higher on the weekends. The suites are clean, and the casino exceeds your expectations. The game variety and competitiveness of the table games is what I liked the most.
Entertainment and Tournaments
There are regular poker tournaments you can enjoy and win big prices. You just need to check their schedule and sign up for one of the most exciting venues in the area.
