About Riviera Casino
Riviera Casino is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Winchester, Nevada. The hotel has over 2,100 rooms, many located in a 23-story tower. The casino has 110,000 sq ft 10,000 m2 of gaming space. Riviera Casino was opened on April 20, 1955 as the first high-rise and the ninth resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The Riviera is one of the oldest and most famous casino resorts in Las Vegas. Riviera Casino also broke new ground in its design: previously, Strip resorts resembled roadside motor courts. It was built by a group of investors from Miami. The resort has gone through many ownership changes over the years, including a period of control by owners linked to the Mafia as was the case for many Vegas resorts in the 1960s and 1970s. Today Riviera Casino is owned by Riviera Holdings Corporation. In 1999 the resort was renovated.
