Riviera Hotel Closed WebpageLast Monday the Riviera Hotel closed after 60 years on the Las Vegas Strip to make way for more exhibit and meeting space for the Las Vegas Convention Center. If you still have some casino chips left over you can still cash them in if you desire even though the Riviera is closed until September 1st 2015 after which time they will become souvenirs. If you want to cash out those chips take them to the nearby Westgate Las Vegas and redeem them at the casino cage while you still can. Most likely the Westgate is getting a cut of these transactions but it’s not uncommon for this to happen when a property closes down; When the Sahara closed to be reborn as the SLS there was a similar deal where you could cash out your Sahara  chips at MGM’s Circus Circus also for a limited time.
