    St Patrick’s Day Tradition

    I met a very special group of people 9 years ago at Harrahs. We have made this a yearly stop. All the dealers and managers know we will be in and have the roulette table open so we can all play. We get pretty loud and have a great time!! Thanks to all!!

    First Time in Iowa

    Hotel staff and casino host, Pam Jackson, all were very professional and friendly and very accommodating. Room well cleaned and ready; coffee maker, refrigerator and TV all worked just fine. All restaurants visited were clean, food was very tasty and staff friendly making sure you stayed safe among this COVID-19 pandemic. Casino staff and security keeping, as best they could, surfaces in the casino well sanitized. Will definitely return when at all possible.

    I was fortunate enough to get invited to the "Share The Wealth" slot tournament this year. This was my first slot tournament. Had a absolute GREAT time. My host Ann Schramm was absolutely the BEST! Hope to get invited back for next year's tournament. I highly recommend Harrahs for their accomendations and their over and above treatment that they give their guests.
