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 6’s through 10’s, and a pair of jacks or better wins. The big payouts in New Hampshire Hold ‘Em have made it one of the River’s most popular games!

Payout Table*:

  • Royal Flush pays 400 to 1
  • Straight Flush pays 100 to 1
  • Four of a Kind pays 30 to 1
  • Full House pays 8 to 1
  • Flush pays 6 to 1
  • Straight pays 4 to 1
  • Three of a Kind pays 3 to 1
  • Two Pair pays 2 to 1
  • Pair of Jacks or better pays 1 to 1
  • Pair of 6s to 10s gets a Push

*Maximum Aggregate Payout $5000

Big 6 Money Wheel

A fixture of casinos everywhere, the Big 6 Money Wheel is one of the simplest casino games there is.  There are no hands to memorize and no complex rules — just the luck of the draw and your own betting prowess.

The game is so named because there are six different wagers a player can make.  And with payouts as high as 40:1, you can win big, even on a modest bet.


Blackjack is back! The River has the only Blackjack game in town! And we’ve added a Bonus “Match the Dealer” side bet to add even more excitement!

Blackjack, or twenty-one, is the most widely played casino table game in the world. 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, Kings, Queens and Jacks have a card count of ten, and all other cards are given their numeric face value. 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 a “push”, and the player does not win or lose money on that hand.

Criss Cross Poker

If you’re tired of traditional poker games, try the River’s exciting new Criss Cross Poker! Criss Cross Poker is essentially an extension of NH Hold’em. In that game, players begin with two hole cards and try to improve using three community cards, but in Criss Cross Poker, the community card count is increased to five.

The game’s name comes from the particular “cross-like” pattern formed by fitting the five community cards up and down, in addition to left and right.

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.

*Maximum Aggregate Payout $5,000

Spanish 21

Like Blackjack, with some fun innovations! 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!

And, like on our Blackjack game, we have a Bonus “Match the Dealer” side bet to add even more excitement!

Let It Ride

Let it Ride is a five card stud game in which players try to get the best possible poker hand by using a combination of their cards and the dealer’s cards. A winning hand consists of a Pair of 10s or better. Players compete against a paytable, not against the dealers or other players.

To play, each player places three bets of equal denomination. Players are then dealt three cards face down. The dealer is also dealt three cards, called “community cards”. After looking at their hand, players may ask for their first bet back or may “let it ride”. The dealer will then turn over one community card. Players may then ask for their second bet back or “let it ride”. The second community card is turned over by the dealer. At this point, all winning hands are paid.
