Harrah's has a great buffet restaurant which is expensive, but at least we were able to use a 2 for 1 coupon. The casino is in two buildings. It is in walking distance from Cal-Neva, Circus Circus, Silver Legacy and Eldorado.
March 23, 2011 on my last night of four in Reno, I stopped by Harrah's for some slot play. Was there less than 1 hr. Placed a $10 bill in a rather new, penny slot machine. Lost about $4.50 and hit a $1200 pay off. If I had only bet the max the pay out would have been over 33k. My trip to Reno was paid for with the push of a button.
I used to like Harold's Club in Reno but since it's gone Harrah's gives the best action I have found in Reno. The dollar slots are liberal and the blackjack dealers and craps dealers are friendly and fun.
