We usually stay at the Rio and were hoping we hadn't made a mistake in not doing so this trip. Boy were we relieved when we visited there. The Rio is undergoing renovations and there were large areas on the casino floor with no slot machines or slot machines that were not in working order.
They also have a new system for bringing drinks while you play. A server will come up to you with a ipad and take your drink order then tell you you must wait at the slot machine you are playing at for 5 minutes for your drink to arrive. Your slot machine has a number and that number is assigned to your drink order so the person delivering the drink can find you. What I saw this creates is people who tire of their game just sitting at the machine not playing while waiting for their drink to arrive so they can move on. Good idea on paper Rio but in actuality it didn't appear to be such a good thing.
I will give the Rio some time to complete it's renovations and will be sure I just visit there rather than stay again until they have it up and running at 100%.
