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. Gaming includes a 20-table smoke-free poker room, 100+ table games, and over 3,000 video gaming machines, which include 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, with more than 10 restaurants to choose from. Whether you want to sample foods from all over the world at the Chefs Stage Buffet or prefer one of the eateries with more specific fare like Ruth’s Chris Steak House or quick bite options, you're sure to find something to your liking.

Situated amid the beautiful mountain setting of western North Carolina, the luxurious 21-story Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel provides luxury lodging with 1,108 spacious rooms. Enjoy breathtaking views and a variety of amenities including a fitness room, indoor pool and outdoor pool featuring a zero entry pool, cabanas, and bar area; bars, lounge, nightclub, spa, nine specialty shops, and one of the top golf courses in the country. Many people come simply for the hotel accommodations and to catch one of the headline acts performing at the 3,000 seat Event Center.

The UltraStar Multi-tainment Center is the latest offering at Harrahs Cherokee. Located at the north end of the casino, guests can enjoy bowling on 24 lanes, a brand new restaurant, a game center, and a VIP 21+ second level!

The best tip is not to waste your money there. The slots have become so tight over the last 5 years or so...hardly any jackpots anymore and the table games are stacked to the house.

Hi, thanks for stopping in! The west end of the parking lot at Harrah's Cherokee Resort Casino is designated for RV parking. Overnight is okay as long as your unit is fully self contained. The Happy Holiday Campground is nearby and offers courtesy van service if you would rather leave your unit in a recreational vehicle village and still enjoy the casino and resort experience. Happy Holiday Campground 1553 Wolfetown Rd. Cherokee, NC (828) 497-9204 Now open year round If you get a chance, please sign up for an account here so you can rate the casino and qualify for all sorts of goodies. Heck, build up enough points by participating and we'll even put you up in a hotel so you can play more.

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. Video gaming fans who are more accustomed to the way slots work in other states will appreciate that Harrah's Cherokee has almost completely phased out the "spin twice" machines. Now after every spin, you are automatically entered into a raffle for a second chance to win. All you have to do is insert your Total Rewards card.

If you like your blackjack and baccarat with an Asian flair, be sure to visit Le Fu Men located just off of the casino floor adjacent to the Noodle Bar. Be sure to check out the Digital Mini Baccarito.

Poker players will find a game to their liking as well, now with 20 live tables. Choose from $2 to $5 cash games, NLHE, 7 Stud, or Omaha. Check the schedules for WSOP events too!

New items on the menu include chicken and waffles, but all of your old favorites are still there like the black and blue, or Carolina burgers. Of course dinner time may require a more fitting repast and a 12 oz. ribeye, or coldwater lobster tail with all the accompaniments may be more to your liking.
