Around 1822, Americaâ€™s first gambling casino opened in New Orleans. Like modern casinos, it was open 24/7. In 1999, Harrahâ€™s brought the action back to New Orleans with the opening of Harrahâ€™s New Orleans Casino. Today, you can take a shot at more than 1,500 of the hottest slots and more than 130 table games including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, and three card poker. The poker room boasts more than 20 poker tables, offering several exciting varieties of poker that are suited to the recreational poker players and seasoned veterans.
As of 2015, Harrahâ€™s New Orleans is a non-smoking establishment, but guests can play their favorite slots in the outdoor, climate controlled, smoking and gaming courtyards.
When youâ€™re ready to dine, indulge in a 30-day dry aged New York Strip at Besh Steak or never-ending favorites at The Buffet. Looking for a quick bite or pick me up? You will find endless options like Fuddruckers, Starbucks, McAlisterâ€™s Deli, Acme Oyster House and 2GeauXpress.
