I go to this casino 3-4 times a year, and have been since the
casino was built. Yes, the machines are tighter than they are in
Vegas, but most Tribal casinos are. And yes, they seem to be
getting tighter lately, but from what I hear from friends that
gamble in Vegas and AC frequently ALL the casinos are tightening
up. I am not a high roller, mostly quarter keno, poker, and
slots, but I get in enough play that my room and some of my
meals are comped when I go.
The hotel and casino are both very nice and clean, the service
is good (much better than it was the last time I was in Atlantic
City), and the food in the restaurants is ok.....but if you are
looking for a Cesar's Palace experience with a celebrity chef in
the restaurant, don't bother going here.
I, personally, love the place. The have games that I like to
play and have not seen in other casinos....namely Shamrock
Sevens poker and Super Ball video keno. Yes, the machines are
tighter than they are in Vegas, but people DO win there, I have
seen many jackpots go and have even won a few myself. Let's face
it....you gamble and some days you win, some days you lose; it
is like that in any casino you go to.
This was my first time going to the Cherokee casino, I
enjoyed myself very much, got very busy though, lost a lot of
money, hardly hit anything, so I just went shopping in the area,
loved that, very interesting things do see and do there besides
gamble. slots are very very tight. I like the video tables they
had but to me a real person is more personal. I will be back in
the future, probably will lose again of course since this casino
is so tight. I just moved to S.C. form the Gulf Coast and I sure
do miss my Casinos there, I had a better chance to come home
with a little bit of money. I think if you go to Cherokee you
will like it.
This is an Indian casino with a nice hotel. No alcohol is
allowed on the property nor sold in the county. None is served
on the casino floor nor in dining areas. Table games are
electronic with the live dealer pushing buttons for the cards to
appear on your video screen.
machines are average and very busy when the
Tour Busses are in. I have played numerous times and find this
one of the tightest
casinos anywhere. I generally play to maintain
my player level for other properties. The buffet is mainly
southern fried food. The Steak House quality is uneven. The
snack bar is your best option.
The casino is not half bad, considering this is the only
casino in North Carolina. Keep in mind that there are no live
dealers. Food was ok. I was actually there to see a concert. The
venue resembles high school auditorium, but it's nice to have a
small venue since you can't possibly have a bad seat. It's
definitely a spot to go to fill the need of
gambling without going to Vegas or
This hotel and casino is great. I love the non smoking area.
The food is great! and the hospitality is out of this world.
From Pocco: Very disappointing. No
interplay between croupier, boxmen or dealers as there are none!
Smoke-filled, limited choice of gaming.
I have been to Cherokee a few times... I moved to the
charlotte area from Las Vegas 2 1/2 years ago. I had the fever!
I needed to hear the sound of coins dropping! Unfortunately it
didn't live up to my expectations... Computer generated dealers?
What is that? Me no like! So to the machines I will go. I did
have fun even without a high ball! Did I win? Of course not!
That's my luck. I've also brought friends along to partake in
gaming at this establishment. You do receive a Players card. I
have accumulated enough for a free room and some discounts and
cash. It's funny how in the 2 1/2 years I've been here I've
never been able to receive any of those comps.
I was in Harrah's, Cherokee, NC last year. It was a great
experience. They had a lot of promotions. It was full of
activities. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I would surely love to
go back and have more fun.
Harrah's in Cherokee is fun, don't go expecting to win, as it
is ALWAYS a tight casino. There is no alcohol, no real cards,
and you have to look for a place to stay on short notice. Have
fun at Harrah's Cherokee N.C., but expect to leave with your
While visiting my daughter in Georgia, we took a day trip. The
ride was beautiful the area is lovely. The casino was mediocre.
However, I live within driving distance to Foxwoods and Mohegan
Sun in CT. No live dealers, no alcohol (didn't matter to me, but
I was surprised). The slots are really tight... no big win bells
going off. Not worth the ride for the casino, but okay for the
I've been to the casino at Cherokee that ought to be rich -
nobody wins hardly anything. I think they need to stop being so
tight and more people will come. All you see is people walking
around empty the machines when everybody have lost their money.
I live in Tennessee and go to Harrah's all the time either alone
or with some friends for an evening out. The staff at the casino
are the best! Everyone is super nice and go out of their way to
make sure that you have a good time. The food selection is good,
parking and shuttle is great, and there are tons of different
games to choose from. It's not Vegas but it's fun, especially if
you like slots. Could be looser but I have won several jackpots
over the years. Fun shopping too if you are out of the area and
enjoy crafts, etc. Beautiful Smokey Mt. National Forest and
Gatlinburg just "over the hill". To each their own but I highly
recommend Harrah's. Love it!
