New Casino to open in 2014!

Just returned from Harrah's Cherokee and as usual, we lost all of our bankroll, but at least we had fun while doing it LOL

However, several of the dealers told us that Harrah's is opening another casino in Murphy NC about 45 mins away from Cherokee. The estimated opening date is mid-late 2014.

Maybe with another casino in the area, the chances of actually breaking even, or dare I say winning, may increase :-)

I did a little looking and it appears that a second casino is in the works. It too will be part of the Cherokee Harrah's and on Indian Land from what I have read.

From what im told, they are filling up their rooms very fast ,especially on weekends.

I am a long time cet player with strong history at caesars palace,yet really had a hard time getting a Saturday night room there, I know it was because I only played there once(took a beating) but anywhere else I can get on the phone with a host and get the best rooms they have on a days notice. So maybe It will really be a good thing having a 2nd property.

We play at other CET properties in LV as well, and we have been lucky that we have been able to get comped rooms in Cherokee on occasion, but only once on a Saturday night. I hope you are right a1, that having a 2nd property may help!

I understand the system........... play history means everything.

But I did get annoyed when I tried to book an unexpected return trip right after we returned from my 1st visit,only to be told they were booked up?. I have a friend who said they booked the same night I was shooting for a week after they told me no.

I guess im one of those spoiled players used to getting what I want, so after 3 calls, emails ect ect. I had someone from VIP services call me,and he was very sincere about them being booked up, turned out to be ok,I really didn't care either way,and in the end my wifes happier now because we rented a cabin in the smokeys for sat night so we both end up getting what we want out of the next trip. ps.the guy told me its best to book by the 15th of the month prior to when you want to go since that's when the offers come out and everyone who rates a weekend room starts booking right away?

I was planning on going the 1st of November but am going to cancel. Just tired of the tight machines and feeling like I'm throwing money away in less than 2 hours. I don't mind breaking even if I can play most all night but losing what money I bring in 2 hours is crazy. So if anyone wants a room on November 1st, I'll be cancelling mine soon. FYI I usually book a comp room at least 4 months in advance. That's the only way I can get one on a weekend night.

I don't think so they owns both Casino no reason for a better pay out. The only way is people just quite playing those tight machines.
