Las Vegas casino in New Orleans

Close to the riverfront is the massive Harrah’s Casino, which stretches from Canal Street down South Peters Street. It’s the only land-based casino in the state, a fact which might seem surprising considering that New Orleans' past is full of prodigious gamblers, including Bernard Marigny, who introduced craps to the New World.

The establishment of Harrah’s left a long, colorful trail of irregular legislative behavior and deal-making, a couple of bankruptcies and a few people thrown in jail. Somehow, though, Harrah’s managed to make the deal work, and now it’s open 24/7, with a plush gaming arena worthy of Vegas.

If you’re unable to peel yourself away from Harrah’s Casino tables, at least drop by the central court to play slots under the gigantic fake oak tree and the canopy of fibre-optic stars. Casino has reopened, all pre-Katrina services, amenities, etc. restored.
