“Just another Casino”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is a very nice casino, with a lot to offer but it is still just a casino. There are a lot of options for quick food dining,but if you go there during the day your main purpose is to gamble with the hopes of winning. I am not a card player so my entertainment is limited to the slot machines.

The casino does offer entertainment in the form of first class stage shows,but this is an evening event. I would not worry too much about the dress code as it appeared to be very casual. This visit was good for an hour or two but that's it

“Tight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've been to this Harrah's before without much success, but never really let that bother us. After all, it is the only game in town. I like to gamble, so I go there not expecting too much. Of course, I didn't get too much. I about broke even (up $30), but only after three days. Still, if you like to gamble and don't set your expectations too high- you'll do fine. If you want a real chance, then try Biloxi. They know they have to be a bit looser- there are too many other choices.

“Large, lots of gaming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The casino was large, with lots of gaming tables. I would have prefered less smoke, though. Dealers were friendly, but often complained about work or chatted with coworkers while dealing. Slows down the gaming and irritates the gamblers...

This casino is pretty busy no matter the time of day. It has lots of food choices in it. It is also in a great location.

“Lots of Table Games”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Did not stay at the hotel. Only played in the casino. Very large casino, good selection of games. There are a lot of table games. Very clean. Cool location, right down town. The casino and hotel are across the street from each other but still easy to get to and from.
