I come to NOLA at least once a year and play at Harrah's. I own a timeshare here for the last twenty years I been coming to Harrah's ever since they opened in New Orleans My plan to play at Harrah's has been to gamble 3K BUT since you CAN'T smoke y'all saved me this money. I stood outside of Harrah's and counted 33 people smoking Average time smoking was 10 - 15 minutes How do y'all make up for that time lost gambling??
Made a quick weekend trip to New Orleans to play some poker at Harrahs Casino. The poker area was full of poker players on a Saturday afternoon. We had to wait a little while to get seated, but not too long. One thing that was different playing here versus other casinos I've played poker in was they didn't take a normal rake from each hand. However, each half hour, they would require each player to pay $6. So, this equates to a $12/hour "fee" per player to play. Oh, and if you've played at one of the other Harrahs properties where you can use your TotalRewards card in the poker room, this is not the case here. No comps for poker.
Also, table game limits were set pretty high. The whole weekend we almost did not see any blackjack for less than $15/hand. On Sunday morning, we did find one $10/hand table, but that was it. Most tables were at least $15/hand.
The casino is a decent size for slot players. There were lots of machines all over the place.
