The Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino in Laughlin was the brainchild of Don Laughlin, who is also the very same man that Laughlin is named after!
Many avid slot players have discovered the town of Laughlin which is like a mirage in the desert, located about an hour’s drive away for the Las Vegas Strip you will find is nestling on the banks of the Colorado River and with its on “strip” of casinos.
However, the Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino was the very first casino that opened in Laughlin, and if you are looking for a casino offering a gaming floor that can be best be described as a maze, then this is certainly a place worth visiting!
One thing we have discovered about this casino resort is that the room rates are by no stretch of the imagination the cheapest ones in Vegas, however it does have to be said that as soon as you sign up to the King of Players Club, that being that venues unique comp club scheme, you are going to get offered an amazing array of free or very heavily discounted rooms and/or suites, if you do show a commitment to gamble there.
There are of course many other things to do there than simply gamble, however as the entire town was built as a gambling destination if you do love playing any type of slot machine, video poker game or card and table games you will be in your element!
The gaming floor is vast, and what we did like about this venue when we visited it is that you can find lots of slot machines tucked away on different parts of the gaming floor, some busy and some much quieter parts of that gaming floor.
You will find both low stake and high stake slot machines on offer, and as this casino does tend to cater for a much older type of clientele you will find slot of the older styled 3 reel slot machines mixed in with the all singing all dancing, bonus game packed video slots.
So there will always be a huge range of different slot machines many of which will appeal to you, should you decide to pay the casino a visit.
One aspect of staying in Laughlin that we have always found appealing is that you do feel much safer wandering around the town, or up and down the impressive River Walk. So if you have been a regular visitor to Las Vegas for example but have always been way about getting out and about then perhaps it is time to pay a visit to Laughlin.
If you are interested in visiting and staying at the Don Laughlin Riverside Resort Hotel and Casino then be aware that they do offer some reasonably prices flight and room rate package deals, and those flights arrive at the Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport located on the Arizona side of the Colorado River, so getting to and from Laughlin is now much easier to do for those without access to a car!
