Harrahs Cherokee Casino Review

From humble beginnings as a video poker hall in 1997 to the April 2013 transition to all live table games, players from all around are singing the praises of the only real casino in North Carolina. Over 3,000 video gaming machines are available including video poker and the new generation of "Cherokee Raffle Reels" where every slots spin is given a second chance as a raffle draw - eliminating the need to "lock & roll" again to meet regulatory requirements.


All of your gastronomical desires are attended to here as well whether you want to sample foods from all over the world at the Chefs Stage Buffet, or try one of the eateries with more specific fare like Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Of course there are always quick bite options and plenty of beverage service.


Many people come simply for the hotel accommodations and to catch one of the headliner acts. The rooms are spacious with a variety of accoutrements and amenities to suit any vacation lifestyle or budget.

Gaming at Harrahs Cherokee Casino

In addition to over 3,000 gaming machines accepting denominations ranging from $.05 to $100 players will now find live table games such as roulette, blackjack and craps at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort.

Poker players will find a game to their liking as well. With 15 PokerPro electronic tables and five live card tables where you can compete with up to 9 other players, you will find your game. $2 to $5 cash games, NLHE, 7 Stud, and Omaha are waiting for you to take your place at the tables.
