Harrah’s Cherokee poised to complete $250m project

North Carolina Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is poised to complete a four-year $250m expansion project during the latter stages of the year as it strives to become “a destination that is unlike any other”.

The extensive development project, which broke ground June 2018, includes a World Series of Poker room, 725-room hotel tower, 83,000-square-foot convention space, new food and beverage offerings and more. 

“We are thrilled to see this project come to completion and to be able to offer our guests new amenities and offerings,” explained Brooks Robinson, regional senior vice president and general manager of Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos

“This expansion has been an integral component to our property and community’s growth and helps us further show that Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort is truly a destination that is unlike any other in the Carolinas. We look forward to welcoming both new and returning visitors to see the results of this project.”

The resort’s fourth hotel tower will be welcoming guests to 725 rooms during the Autumn, with 83,000-square-feet of meetings and conventions space to more than triple the current rentable area at Harrah’s Cherokee.

In addition to the expansion project, several new gaming amenities and food and beverage offerings have already debuted earlier this year, with additional openings to come over the following months:

Upon completion, the expansion will include a WSOP poker room, which is to open in September 2020, and will allow guests to access the 34-table space which will offer eight-handed cash games. 

Furthermore, in partnership with Caesars Entertainment and William Hill, The Book, which initially debuted in March, aims to give sports fans “the opportunity to enjoy Las Vegas-style gaming in the heart of Western North Carolina”. 

Harrah’s Cherokee Casinos, formed of the aforementioned facility and Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino & Hotel, located near Murphy, North Carolina, form an enterprise of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.
