Richmond’s River Rock Casino

River Rock Casino

A large Vancouver gambling venue, River Rock Casino is across from the Bridgeport SkyTrain Station not far from YVR Airport and the Richmond Night Market.

The River Rock Casino is one of Metro Vancouver’s main casinos (with the others being the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby, the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam, and the Parq Vancouver Casino).



As a result of the novel coronavirus and efforts to contain it, the River Rock Casino announced that, effective at midnight on March 15th, 2020, it was suspending operations until further notice.

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 suspended operations at all these locations as well as at all its other properties across Canada.

As of December 28, 2020, the resort and its casino in Richmond remain closed.

For details about the above, see the River Rock Casino or Great Canadian Casinos websites. For a list of other venues and events affected by the virus see our article about COVID-19 in Vancouver.


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!
