New Hampshire Hold ‘Em

New Hampshire Hold ‘Em is a five-card poker game that lets you bet up to 10 units on a single hand. In NH Hold ‘Em, you compete against a pay table, not against the dealer. The goal is to make a poker hand using the two cards in your hand and the three cards on the board. In order to get a push, you need a pair of 7’s through 10’s, and a pair of jacks or better wins. The top payout is 125 to 1 for Royal Flush or $2,000, the big payouts in New Hampshire Hold ‘Em have made it one of The River’s most popular games!


There are 36 numbers plus 0 and 00 and many combinations of numbers on which to place bets. Additional bets include: red/black, even/odd, 1 to 18, 19 to 36, first dozen, second dozen, third dozen, and column bets. The dealer spins the ball. If it lands on a number on which a player has placed a chip the player wins. The payout is determined by how many numbers are covered by a player’s chip.


Blackjack is back! Blackjack, or twenty-one, the most widely played casino table game in the world, is back at the River!  

The goal of twenty one is simple; beat the house`s combination by acquiring a combined card count of 21 or under. Aces are valued as either 1 or eleven, picture cards Kings, Queens and Jacks have a card count of ten, and all cards are given their numeric face value, i.e. 7 is valued as 7 points, 2 is valued at 2 points… etc. If the Player’s total goes over 21, the Player busts and loses the amount wagered. Players win by not busting and having a total higher than the dealer, or not busting and having the dealer bust, or getting a blackjack without the dealer getting a blackjack. If the player and dealer have the same total (not counting blackjacks), this is called a “push”, and the player does not win or lose money on that hand.

Spanish 21

Like blackjack, but way more fun! Spanish 21 is based on the classic game of blackjack, but has several different rules and exciting twists. The main rule difference between blackjack and Spanish 21 is that a player’s 21 always beats a dealer’s 21! Booya!

Criss Cross Poker

Criss Cross Poker is an exciting, new poker game, exclusive to the River in New Hampshire!

The game is played with a single 52-card deck. The objective of Criss Cross Poker is for the player to make a pair of 6s or better going across and, separately, going down using the community cards and their two hole cards. The 5 Card Bonus bet wins with a pair of 6s or better using just the five community cards.

Packs Poker

Easiest game to play in the house! The object of the game is for the player to achieve a higher poker hand than the dealer by combining their five card hand with one or more of the two card packs of community cards. Players may use one or both cards in each individual pack of community cards, or they can use just the five cards they were dealt. An optional Ante Bonus wager may also be played for one or more of the two card packs of community cards.


Welcome to the only Craps table in Nashua! Craps is a game in which every player can win together. It also has some of the best odds in the casino, so there’s a lot of winning to be done. Step up and take your turn with the dice or find a hot roller and ride the action. Plus, the lingo is outstanding! Here’s a list to get you started:
Craps – 2,3, or 12
Yo, or Yo-leven – 11
C and E Craps – 11
Snake Eyes – Two 1s
Boxcars – Two 6s
Little Joe, or Little Joe from Kokomo – 4 (particularly rolled as a 1 and a 3)
Jimmy Hicks – the number 6
Skate and Donate – 8
Puppy Paws – Two 5s — though the more common call is simply “Hard 10,” or “10, the hard way”
Natural Winner – 7 or 11 on the come-out roll
