CASINO CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19
As a result of the novel coronavirus and efforts to contain it, the River Rock Casino has announced that, effective at midnight on March 15th, 2020, it is suspending operations until further notice. Guests currently staying at the resort’s hotel have until 11 am on Monday, March 16th, to check out.
The River Rock Casino is managed by the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation which also operates Vancouver’s Hastings Racecourse at the PNE and Coquitlam’s Hard Rock Casino. Other Lower Mainland properties include Elements Casino Surrey, Elements Casino Chilliwack and Chances Maple Ridge. The company is suspending operations at all these locations as well as at all its other properties across Canada.
As of June 20th, 2020, the resort and its casino in Richmond remain closed.
River Rock Casino in Richmond
Until the arrival of Parq Vancouver in 2017, the River Rock was the Lower Mainland’s largest casino, with over 1,100 slot machines. It also apparently had “the most Baccarat tables in North America,” plus regular games of chance like Poker, Roulette and Blackjack.
The River Rock Casino is right outside the Bridgeport SkyTrain Station at 8811 River Road not far from Vancouver International Airport and the Richmond Night Market (which is open from May until October). The facilities offer table games, slots and evening shows and concerts, plus its four-star hotel.
TIP: Play for fun, but not to make money! As the BC Lottery Corporation says, “Know your limit. Play within it!“
