We haven't stepped foot in Riviera in a long time. There just hasn't been much of a reason to. The casino was bland, the restaurants weren't anything special and it's location is less than ideal. But, these changes to the gambling floor are at least worth a stop. And, that’s coming from a gambler who has a players card at every Strip property... except Riviera. It appears that they are beginning to regain at least some relevancy. This writer will be curious to see if the changes made any difference or if it is just another marketing scheme.

Why We Are Headed Back to the Riviera
This VegasChatter writer is gearing up for another Las Vegas trip in a couple weeks, and that means another to-do list. So while writing down everything we wanted to make sure to see and do, we ran across something completely unexpected. We wrote on our list to make sure to swing by the Riviera for some gambling.

Riviera has been in the news a lot recently trying to market their property to gamblers. It's an intriguing strategy and completely counter to what every other Las Vegas property seems to be doing. While the big companies are marketing their new clubs, rooms and restaurants, Riviera is making sure you know about their new casino. The big push right now from the Riviera is that they want to provide the best gambling odds of anywhere on The Strip. They have a single-zero roulette wheel, 1000x odds on craps, and single-deck blackjack that pays 3-2.
